A couple has proved their new dog training centre has more than one use - by getting married there.

Craig and Marita Ogilvie tied the knot at their new business, which they opened after identifying a lack of dog training facilities that benefited from artificial turf.

The surface they have fitted inside the centre includes a 15mm shock absorber underlay, meaning dogs have a more gentle landing when they are bounding around.

The centre, in Twenty, features a full range of agility equipment within the 54-metre long indoor area and is surrounded by five acres of land.

Marita said: “We are both dog trainers, and we thought that there was a real lack of dog training centres in the UK, especially with artificial turf.”

The centre has been open for just under two months and has already begun to host workshops covering agility, obedience, flyball and puppy classes.

Craig and Marita will be teaching in the centre with Craig offering one-to-one sessions to help dog owners with specific behavioural problems.

Craig, a licensed police dog trainer, was inspired by his grandfather, who had the same occupation.

Marita has competed for Team UK in agility for four years in the pedigree dogs' FCI World Championships.

She started out teaching dogs tricks and her passion for working with animals grew.

Having celebrated their wedding at their business premises, Marita and Craig are encouraging people to use the space for more than dog training.

Marita said: "The centre isn’t just to be used for dog training. People can hire it for yoga and fitness classes, meetings and celebrations."

The centre is open seven days a week, from 8am until 9pm and has 50 car parking spaces.
