Last Friday saw the official inauguration of the first dog agility park to be constructed on the Orihuela Costa, with the councillor for the coast, Martina Scheurer, officially opening the centre at noon.
Located on the south end of calle Pluton, near to calle Arco Iris on the La Florida urbanisation, the park is equipped with a sandy floor covering, hurdles, balance boards, rocks and poles, to tantalise the imagination of dogs of all sizes.
Nearby is a newly refurbished children´s play park too, both surrounded by trees and plants, which the councillor hopes will become a central point for families, along with their doggy members, to meet and enjoy this community based initiative.
Local professional dog behaviour expert and trainer Angela Holt was on hand during the opening on Friday, giving a demonstration of how the facilities can be used, and happily answering questions on dog training.
Although this is the first facility on the Orihuela Costa, it is hopefully not the last, with a much larger facility integrated in the future plans for the development of the park at La Regia amongst them.
