Dogs enjoying Upton Country Park will now be able to go home clean and mud-free after a visit to the new, self-service dog washing facility.
The pay-as-you-go dog wash allows dog owners to wash and dry their dogs for as little as £3.
Owners can choose from a wide range of options, including environmentally friendly shampoo, flea and tick shampoo, conditioner, and a blow-drying function.
Cllr John Rampton, Cabinet Portfolio Holder for Environment and Open Spaces, Borough of Poole, said: “The new self-service dog washing area is a fantastic addition to the park, and I am sure that this will be extremely popular with the many dog owners who enjoy time exploring the beautiful grounds at Upton Country Park.”
Upton Country Park is a popular year-round location with dog walkers, and features popular canine-facilities including a dog training area, the stream splash, and even treats in the form of dog-friendly ice-cream and popcorn available from the Upton Tea Rooms.
