(Average user rating: unrated unrated)

Find out about me, my owner and my favourite place for a walk in Sherwood Pines, as well as great dog friendly places to eat and sleep near by.

Meet Patti the dog from Sherwood Pines

Making a bug home at an Eco-Kids event.  My owner and me

I am an adventurous nine year old Border Collie who once went missing for nine days – and came back without a tail! Recreation manager Chris, who looks after me, still doesn’t know what happened to me, but I don't really seem to miss my tail at all!

Making a bug home at an Eco-Kids event.  Favourite treat

It has to be sausages. I'm not fussy on what kind, any will do!

Making a bug home at an Eco-Kids event.  Best trick

Climbing onto kitchen counters to steal food.

Making a bug home at an Eco-Kids event.  Arch rival

Cuddles the cat. She knows I don’t like furry felines, but she still spooks me on purpose.

Making a bug home at an Eco-Kids event.  Favourite places for a walk

I like to walk everywhere in Sherwood Pines. The longer the walk the better.

Making a bug home at an Eco-Kids event.  Water stops

There's a handy water bowl placed outside the visitor centre.

Making a bug home at an Eco-Kids event.  Other useful information

You won't find any dog waste bins, we either use the 'stick and flick' method, or Chris bags it up and takes it home. Visit Sherwood Pines for more information about what's available on site.
