The Secure training paddock- The training paddock is securely fenced and gated to contain everyone from a Chihuahua to a Great Dane and everything in between. It is big enough for dogs to run free but not too big that you ever lose sight of your pet. It is ideal for training purposes where you can respond to your dog wherever and whatever he/she is doing. Gently sloping, it is perfectly drained and mown regularly to keep the grass in tip-top condition.
Equipment to use in the Paddock- We are looking to provide a variety of equipment for you to use free of charge to enhance your experience at our venue. We have adjustable hurdles so the little dogs can join in with trying their paws at agility. We also have some weave poles and will be looking at getting a tunnel soon. Under construction and available shortly will be
an 'A' frame and a dog walk, all suitable for dogs introductory level agility and for owners just looking to have some interactive fun with their pets. We will also provide balls, toys and flirt poles to keep you and your dogs
We must stress that the dog agility equipment is purely built for dogs and is not suitable for children and/or adults. Use at your own risk.
Toilets- Relief is at hand as we have toilets on site.
CCTV- Security is addressed with CCTV surveying the site. This would allow you to leave the venue and take one of the mapped walks of the local area secure in the knowledge that your car would be safe.
Human and Canine first aid supplies- Accidents sometimes happen so a fully stocked First Aid Kit will be located in the paddock storage shed along with hand sanitiser.
Drinking water and splash pool for dogs- We will provide dog drinking bowls and water which may need rinsing out between field users. Please try and keep this clean for the next person. During hot spells, we will put a splash pool in the paddock for the dogs to coll off in.
Floodlights for next winter- Looking ahead to next winter, we are hoping to provide extra lighting to allow the paddock to remain open after sunset for those of you who like to use the venue after work.
