I am a big supporter of The Yellow Dog Project and am proud to say that The Crate Escape is a sponsor.
The Yellow Dog Project was created to bring awareness to those dogs who simply need space, whether it be whilst the dog is being rehabilitated, in training or recovering from surgery.
Therefore if you see a dog who is wearing either a yellow ribbon or bandanna (or similar) on lead, please respect their wishes and do not approach either the dog or its owner unless granted to do so.

Mucky Mutz is another local grooming salon, in Basildon, Essex, owned by Carly Franklin.
This salon also comes highly recommended.
