Reactive Dog Guide
Little Bent Cottage is a 3 STAR top rated Reactive Friendly cottage. Here are the reasons why: Little Bent Cottage is situated on a very quiet rural road. On closing the gates, the garden is secure (though if you have jumpers, please note height of fence and walls). There are two secure adjoining dog paddocks with 6 feet high fencing all around. Little Bent Cottage guests have EXCLUSIVE access to both paddocks and there is no livestock currently in the surrounding fields. If your dog is reactive, although we cannot police where the farmer puts his livestock, it is possible to just use one paddock to avoid confrontation. Mostly the ground is used for grass with only very occasional grazing
