As much as we love our pampered pets, we do not like to see them at hockey. It is not fair on them and not fair on others who may not feel comfortable around other peoples’ pets, not to mention the little doggy accidents that may occur. So unless your dog is a working dog ie. Guide or carer, please leave them at home. At the moment we are only aware of one such carer dog, “Solly”, if you have one of these please bring it to our attention. Please keep on a lead at all times.
