DOG-LOVER Verity Smith has set up a creche to offer day care services for man’s best friend.

She established the The Paw Pad on Skerne Road, Driffield, with funding through the Princes Trust and Goole Development Fund.

She said: “We have started a ringcraft evening where you learn to show and present your dog as well as Flyball evenings. This is a new concept in the East Riding of Yorkshire and we are the first ever to receive a council licence to run this kind of establishment.

“We have received funding from the princess trust and Goole development trust. We also offer so many free places each month to guide dogs, hearing, dogs and dogs for the disabled.
