Centre Parcs - Almost Dog Friendly!

Had my first Center Parcs experience this weekend, with all the family and of course the 2 dogs and I must say that we had a really good time.  Transporting 6 bikes was a bit of an epic but I was so pleased we made the effort becuase cycling through the forrest with the dogs attached to the bikes was lovely.

My one big disappointment was the lack of Dog Bins!

They supply you with some poo bags on arrival and ask you politley to make sure you dispose of them only in the dog bins provided in the dog walking areas.  Now you all know dogs don't go when you want them to, and as there were only 2 specific dog walking areas (very well hidden too), so you can be left with a full poo bag for most of the day!  Thank goodness we had our Dicky Bag.  All we need to do now is to get hold of the retail manager and make sure they sell start selling Dicky Bags to all the other poor souls who haven't heard about us yet.  Believe me they would sell loads!

Center Parcs welcome dogs and are to be commended on the way they made us, as dog owners, feel welcome.

Our Lodge was lovely (not passed off with some run down, smelly, only for dog owners accommodation like some places) you are free to roam the whole area with dogs on leads and they even provide places to tie up dogs, if you need to go inside, and bowls of water.

I was sceptical about Center Parcs and I hadn't been before becasue  I found the basic price basic inhibitive and the fact that everything else you might want to do costs extra a frightening prospect.  Having 4 kids means that a quick weekend break could end up costing a small fortune.  I really liked the freedom and safety for cyling and the tranquility, the kids loved the pool and spent a total of 9 hours in there over the weekend (partly due to the fact that they knew we couldn't afford all the additional activities).  The one activity we did want to do, was something the whole family could join in with and was reasonably priced was Geo caching (treasure hunting) but it only ran once on Sunday and was fully booked - considering the clues and answers are fixed and permantly on display I found it hard to understand this system!

My advice dog owners? Don't forget your dicky bag if you're going to Center Parcs.

Just what I needed!

"Wow! The Dicky Bag is exactly what I needed! The clip saves me carrying the bag in my hand, the seal stops it from smelling, and it looks great!"

"I love my Dicky Bag! It's so much nicer than having to carry a plastic bag around, plus the neoprene design means it doubles as my stubby holder! Awesome!"

Best gift ever!

"I got my Dicky Bag as a Christmas gift and it's one of the best things I've been given! I'll definitely be getting one for my dog-loving friends and re-stocking on Dicky Disks and bags... in fact I'm going to order some now!"

Great for carrying... anything!

Just wanted to say thank you for my Camo style Dicky Bag - as well as being ideal for walking Muttley, it's perfect for carrying extra paintballing ammo!

Just come back from a somewhat windy and sometimes wet holiday in Devon. I asked for the dicky bag to be delivered to the rental property we were staying in. They were there ready and waiting (I purchased two, one for a friend). Read more

Top Rated Product!

I recently purchased a dicky bag (dog poo bag!) online as it seemed the answer to all of my poop scooping problems (no bins on walks, clutching a tesco carrier bag blatantly full of crap - you know how it is! )

Excellent product

We love these messages - even the professionals are using our dog walking bags! Smile

"To the Dicky bag team.  I am a professional dog walker and  have bought products before which you use to carry your dogs No2's in and have given up with them with in a couple of days as they have always been so impractical to use.  I must say I have been using my Dicky bag for 3 weeks now and love it!

I like the idea of carrying spare bags in the top although I take them off the roll before hand and push them in to the slot.  The bag is discreet and so much better than when I had pooh bags swinging from my hip! Read more
It's hard to stop people borrowing it! I won a Dicky bag at alocal dog show, having never heard of the company before I didn't know just how great this product was. We take our bag to every show,walk and journey and it really is brilliant. You wouldn't know what it contained and I honestly couldn't live without our now! My mum and sister are having one each for christmas they are amazed. I keep having to ask for my bag back from my sister who tries stealing it on a regular basis!
Thanks to all at Dicky Bags for making our life easier, less embarrasing and more convient. Dicky bags make being a responsible dog owner stylish and cool!
