Club Bunker opened its doors to members and their dogs in Newstead on Sunday.
“People love to walk to the gym so we wanted to provide a dedicated and safe dog play area in full view of the gym floor,” Mr Shaw said.
Client Sophie Forkgen said she was eager to get her “puppy fix” at the gym.
“I don’t have a dog, but I wish I did,” she said.
“They’re not roaming around, they have their little section, so it’ll be a great treat after a workout to see them.”
