So what about Fido?

A dog needs a day off too!

At Fisherman’s Cove we have a fenced dog run where your pet has the space to roam free for regular daily exercise!

On weekends or special occasions however, there are places with wide open spaces where Fido can run wild and free!. At a dog park, you’ll certainly get your exercise , but also get to see your animal at it’s best – running free with no personal territory to protect. It’s amazing to see all the dogs get a long like they’ve been friends for years!
