Take part in Warley Woof
Dogs and their owners are such important park users that the Community Trust wanted a project which would help bring them and the Community Trust closer together. Many dog walkers already act as the eyes and ears of the Trust every day, letting us know about problems, but we wanted to be seen to actively encourage this and to offer something in return. We also wanted to encourage responsible dog ownership as while 95% of dogs and their owners cause no issues at all, there are some others who maybe need some help and encouragement to share the site positively with other park visitors.
So what is Warley Woof? There is a membership scheme where we are encouraging dog owners to register their pets with us, for a small one off fee and we will hold details on our Dog Log to help quickly reunite lost pets with their owners. Members get an email newsletter and an invite to an annual event to give the Trust feedback and hear news. They will also get priority for some of the discounted training we have on offer. When people join they will be given a lovely blue coloured bone shaped poo bag holder with our logo on them. We hope they will clip them to their dog lead so that other members will start to recognise each other and feel able to chat. Membership (one-off lasts forever) is just £6.
Even if people don’t want to join. We know that everyone isn’t a joiner! Then the leaflet about Warley Woof helps to inform people about things we would like them to do when walking with a dog and what the Community Trust does as well. http://warleywoods.org.uk/content/general/Warley%20Woof.pdf If you are ready to join, pop into the shop for a form, or download it here.
There is also a facebook group “Warley Woof” which people can join to post their pictures and share news and info. Click here to find this group.
