DOGS are sticking their heads – and paws – in the sand at a Kenilworth rehoming centre.
Pups at Dogs Trust Kenilworth can enjoy the centre’s new sensory garden which is made from gravel, astro turf, grass and a sandpit.
It includes a water feature, mirror, sand pit, plants, tyres and an archway for them to explore.
The garden is designed to stimulate dog senses while also providing a relaxing environment.
Funding for the garden came from the charity’s Environment Enrichment Fund.
A £500 donation was also given by one of the trust volunteers in memory of their sponsor dog Apatchi.
Rehoming centre manager Sandra Foulds said: “As well as being fun environments for dogs to enjoy, sensory gardens are a great way of keeping them entertained, stimulating them with physical and mental challenges and building their confidence.”
One of the dogs particularly enjoying the garden is two year-old border collie cross Honey.
The youngster loves the quiet surroundings and playing with her toys in the area.
Staff at the trust are looking for an adult-only home for the pup, with a family who can give her lots of attention.
