Sheffield Council Cabinet will approve the lease for the bowling green in High Hazels Park in Darnall to Yorkshire Dog Training this week.

It would provide professional dog training services to all dog owners in and around the city.

The main goal is to educate the owners in their ability to control their dog and to become aware of their responsibilities.

“/>The bowling green at High Hazels Park in Darnall could be turned into a dog training center

The training area will also house a professional portable building, subject to approval by the planning.

The YDT has been trading with centers in Leeds, Doncaster and Wakefield for a decade and plans to open additional locations in Sheffield and Harrogate.

In a report, council officials said it could bring a number of benefits, including generating income, improving safety, improving the quality and attractiveness of the park, and bringing the site back to service.

The report added, “The professional dog training center in High Hazels Park can provide many benefits to the people of the area and the community itself.

“YDT has found that providing these services to people continues to have positive effects.

“Customers can safely venture out into public spaces with their dogs knowing that they are under control and pose no risk to other members of the public.

“Hiking in the midst of nature is a well-known tool to reduce stress. In the hectic life many of us lead now, this can help us every day. ”

The park is a charitable foundation and the cabinet is its trustee.

The council said it funds a significant annual deficit because annual revenues for running the park are generally higher than revenues.

Officers said stakeholders such as the Bowling Club and Friends of High Hazels Park have been consulted and no negative comments have been received.

The rental conditions are excluded from the public.

The Council’s Cabinet will approve the lease in a meeting on Wednesday, February 17th.
