About Us

Welcome to The Lilac House. Home of Awedistra GSDs and dog training, and The Lilac House caravan club certificated location.

We are the Gallimore family; Andrew and Deb, our sons Curtis, Wade and Cole and daughter Ruby. We share our home with Ebony, Elvis and Edie our three beautiful black German shepherd dogs, and Holly our cuddly rescue Rottie. There are also our three miniature Shetland ponies, Crystal, Dallas and Dakota, assorted piggies, chickens, and Scout and Snowbear our cats.

Since moving to this beautiful part of the country in early 2005 we have worked hard to create a friendly welcoming, relaxed environment in which to raise our family. We do all the work here ourselves and take great pride in it. caring very much that people enjoy their stay and we do have had many return caravanners that love and appreciate the area as much as we do.

As you might have guessed we are a family of animal lovers with a special interest in dog training, behaviour, and rehabilitation. Deb Gallimore runs, Pet handling courses, and one to one behaviour consultations among many other dog related services. A warm welcome is extended to everyone who comes to The Lilac House for dog training, caravanning or to buy our delicious free range rare breed pork products.  

Suffice it to say that your pets are as welcome as you to The Lilac House. We are not breed specific. all we ask is that you are responsible for them, respectful of our neighbours and the countryside code and keep them under control at all times.

We hope you enjoy browsing our website and that entices you to visit us at The Lilac House very soon. If you cannot find the information you are looking for please contact us, we look forward to hearing from you.

Fit Fur Life

Fit Fur Life Canine Treadmills

Training and rehabilitation for dogs

Designed and manufactured specifically for canine use the fit fur life range of canine treadmills are the Rolls Royce of canine treadmills, not modified human treadmills.

  • Ultra slow start speed
  • Quiet, smooth operation
  • Fine speed increments
  • Long walking bed
  • Full length side rails
  • Safety stop key
  • Seamless incline and decline feature and much, much more . . . 

Its very important to say here that a treadmill cannot and should not replace a healthy dog's walks. Dogs need the sensory input from smelling the air, the grass under their feet not to mention the socilisation of regular outdoor excersise. A treadmill is NOT a lazy persons dog walking machine.

There are many areas of canine health and fitness where a treadmill can be of enormous benefit.
  • Post operative reahabilitation
  • Behavioural rehabilitation
  • Weight loss
  • Off season training for competitive sports
  • Gait analysis
  • Additional excersise for very energetic dogs
  • Confidence building to name but a few . . . 

Awedistria GSDs and Dog Training at The Lilac House are an authorised Fit Fur Life Agent and Demonstration Center, please contact us to arrange a demonstration or if you'd like to know at which shows the Fit Fur Life Canine Treadmills will next be be appearing.
