For those who don't/can't own a dog, The GRE gives you the opportunity to have a couple of hours of dog-filled fun; from doggy cuddles to playing fetch.
If you've been considering dog ownership, why not find out what it's really like with us before making that big commitment.
GRs are famous for being one of the most gentle and intelligent breeds! That's why we entrust them to resolve your fear of dogs within our specially controlled environment.
Have you lost a pet or loved one recently? Or know someone who has? Many people who are bereaving find it very therapeutic coming to The GRE because they are reminded of the joys of having had their pet and receive the healing love and attention they've been missing.
If you need some time out of your busy lifestyle or are suffering from Combat Stress, The GRE is perfect for you! We're based in the quiet countryside of Exmoor National Park, surrounded by rolling hills with a 10 minute walk to the beach.
The GRE is a great way to spend your Valentine's day, birthday, anniversary or any other special occasion! Makes a perfect Wedding Gift and we do Gift Certificates. You can book out our grounds (dogs included of course) for up to 6 hours of dog-filled fun.
We specialise in the therapeutic needs of children and adults with all forms of learning/social/behavioural difficulties including Autism, Asperger's and other associated conditions. We support SEND (Special Education Needs & Disabilities).
The GRE has shown to be a beneficial and therapeutic experience for clients suffering with ABI and we are pleased to tailor your sessions to suit your patient's specific needs.
We have experience working with the blind, elderly patients and children and adults with Down syndrome. The GRE is fully wheelchair accessible and we have ample parking for minibuses and coaches.
We provide hand sanitiser & wet wipes
along with observing the 2-meter rule.
Customers can bring their own face coverings if desired.
All of our sessions are held outdoors!
If you made a booking for 2021 and Covid prevents you from making your date then we are happy to give you another date later in the year or, if necessary, one for next year.
WARNING: We've been flooded with tens of thousands of enquiries & we can only fit a few thousand people in every year so it is highly unlikely we will get back to everyone this year. Please be patient with us as we are a small family-run business & are working as quickly as we can.
WE ONLY ACCEPT ADVANCE BOOKINGS!
We'd love to see all of you at The GRE but we don't accept walk-ins because we have a limited capacity, all bookings must be made in advance via the 'Book Now' button on our website.
