TAILS will be wagging in Oakley if plans to turn a garden into a dedicated dog training park are approved.

The proposal would create a home for Play2Train, a business set up in 2020 which currently runs from different venues.

The applicant, Pauline Ginnelly, already has facilities installed at her home at Cherry Neuk, Saline Road, which are used by her six pets.

In a supporting statement, it reads that due to the dog trainer's disability, which means she cannot drive, she feels her services are restricted and that she would "better meet the demand for help" if she were to use her garden as a base.

She wants to create a controlled environment which is "aimed at growing calmness and focus" from dogs on their lead.

It would also be a "safe, enriching space" for pets of all ages.

The layout and nature of the site would not be changed, with work including the replacement of the low timber pallet boundary with covered Heras fencing and the inclusion of a parking zone.

Sessions include one-to-one meetings for anxious owners and dogs, beginner classes for four dogs, and advanced groups for up to six dogs. These would only take place during daylight hours and no external lighting has been proposed.
