Paul Moroney of Dog Sense, Training and Behaviour, has decided to make a 12 day trek to Everest base camp, with the opportunity to climb Kala Pattar in a bid to raise money for Abandoned Animals Association and the continuing development of their Sensory garden, enrichment and training areas.

Paul Moroney started holding dog training classes at Abandoned Animals Association rescue centre in October 2016. Since then they have gone from strength to strength and there is now a fairly long waiting list to get on one of the classes. He has also helped many of Abandoned Animals Association dogs overcome problems which has helped them find homes.

The Trek

Twelve days point‐to‐point walking taking us to the most iconic base camp of all, at the foot of the greatest mountain in the world, Mount Everest (8848m), this is one of the world's classic treks. Walking through Sherpa country past cultivated fields and small villages, with time to acclimatise before reaching spectacular high altitude scenery: the incredible monastery at Thyangboche, views of Ama Dablam, Everest and other mighty Himalayan peaks. The trail crosses approximately three modern suspension bridges and as well as reaching Base Camp, we have the opportunity to climb Kala Pattar (5545m) for a magnificent view of the highest mountain on Earth.
