It’s puppy love in the Studio

It’s long been known that animals, especially our pawsome mate, the ever faithful dog, offer us priceless companionship and unconditional love.  Just their sheer presence can bring emotional benefits.

Rocky Bay’s arts, crafts and woodwork studio employees are passionate animal lovers. Aiming for fun and lively days in the studio, they’ve discovered the presence of a furry friend does the trick every time.

Studio Team Leader, Brigitte, comments “when a dog is around, the atmosphere in the studio changes – clients are more talkative, they laugh and enjoy calling the dog for a pat. We exercise the dogs at the park next to Rocky Bay where they meet local dog owners and enjoy feeling a part of the community. We also spend time grooming them and using treats, we teach them basic commands.”

The studio also bakes healthy dog biscuits, selling them to raise money for the RSPCA or other animal rescue organisations.

Rocky Bay clients, Mal, Paul and Sandra have become close to their furry friends, enjoying the love and friendship that they offer.

As well as dog biscuits, the studio makes a wide range of woodwork, pottery and sewing items available for purchase. View the online gallery.
