Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Dog Exercise Park?

It is a private, secure, fenced grass paddock designed for walking, exercising or training dogs. The field has high secure fencing with tyres, small agility poles and a bucketful of dog toys for your pet to enjoy. A waste bin is provided, so please dispose of your dog waste carefully.

Please be aware that we do not supply drinking water for dogs. Please bring your own, if required.

How do I gain access to the Dog Exercise Park?

The dog exercise park is located on the Lodge Road, near the crossroads with Leighams Road. Access is very easy via car. When you get to the site you will notice the secure parking inside the gate. You will need to park the car safely in the layby and enter the access code received. On gaining entry to the small carpark please park your car safely. Once parked access to the dog exercise paddock is gained by entering the same code again.

What sort of fencing is in place?

We use high quality secure  fencing which has small gauge holes. The fencing stands at a massive 6 foot tall, ensuring your dogs are safe. The fencing we have used is ‘Small Dog Proof’ please see the photos below to have a good look at our quality fencing.
