"Friends of Cardiff Dogs Home is thrilled to launch Part 2 of our Environmental Enrichment Program, The Sensory Garden.
The sensory garden will in the first instance provide an area in situ where dogs' natural behaviours can be observed and encouraged, so dogs, walkers, volunteers, and visitors to the home have a heightened experience.
Most importantly, the dogs resident in CDH will, for the first time ever, have an opportunity to run off lead, to sniff, to explore, to hide, to seek, to dig, to splash, to play!
We are also working with a trainer/behaviourist to plan training and awareness courses for those interested in rehoming, or engaging with dogs in a voluntary capacity. The sensory garden will provide a safe, outdoor area for 'practical' exercises.
The area will need to be secure and easily maintainable, and we plan to keep the area as 'natural' in appearance as possible. We will preserve and encourage existing flora and fauna, build habitat piles, encourage bird nesting etc."
