The word “walkies” (or whatever the word may be) is one that gets tails instantly wagging. As a pet parent is there anything better than a trip to the dog park on the weekend? It’s almost a ritual with a coffee stop on the way, then catching up with the “regulars” at the park and somehow despite chatting to the owner almost every week, you only know the name of their dog.

Black Hawk began with one passionate Australian breeder Sherel, and her German Shepard, named Black Hawk.
