The Chill Factore indoor ski slope near Manchester is allowing owners to bring their dogs into the indoor snow area to cool down during the current heatwave.
The centre says it is opening the centre to dogs in response to an RSPCA call for people to be careful of dogs over-heating in the hot weather.
Chill Factore’s ‘Canine Chill Zone’ is open from, noon to 2pm and offers a very cool -5C temperature to canine as well as human visitors.
The facility is open to anyone, you don’t have to be going skiing or boarding.
“It’s obviously a serious issue which we hope our snowy conditions can address by helping out all members of the family. We also want to highlight the serious heat issue to dog owners and support the RSPCA’s awareness drive. The dog “Chill” service is free to users of the slope and any concerned owners looking for a safe place for their pooches to cool down,” the CEO of Chill Factore (and dog owner) Morwenna Angove told media.
