Dogwood Adventure Play is set across seven acres of countryside and comprises of two enclosed fields and a training paddock. Our purpose-built fields are available for you and your dog to hire on an individual basis all year round, seven days a week.
Ideal for dogs that cannot be let off lead in public places – perhaps because they do not enjoy meeting other dogs, or for those that don’t have great recall skills, puppies or adult dogs who need to work on training in an enclosed environment, owners of rescue dogs who would like to bond with their new companion, or anyone else who enjoys watching their dog run free.
Bring a ball or your dog's favourite toy, play some brain games, make use of the adventure play frames or just relax while your dog sniffs and explores the fascinating environment rich with scent.
Fencing is 2 metres high and buried underground meaning that owners of even the most notorious escapees can relax. Our coded double-gate entry system and in-field parking allows you to lock two gates before letting your dog out of the car. We do frequent perimeter checks to put your mind at rest.
Our original field has its own car park making it suitable for those dogs who prefer not to be close to other dogs or people. Fencing is 2m high and topped with 35° angled brackets. There are activity frames for adventure play or canine parkour, a digging pit, tyres and logs to climb on and jump over, as well as a shelter for you to enjoy a picnic under.

Dogwood Adventure Play is available for professional use. Please contact us.
Adventure Play equipment is provided to increase confidence, range of motion, strength and balance in dogs, while the Sensory Garden is made up of a variety of smells and textures which reduce stress and anxiety, encourage dogs to be more secure in their surroundings, and provide stimulation and enrichment.
Our newest space hosts one of our enclosed fields and a training paddock. As there can be dogs in both the field and the paddock at any one time and sharing a car park, this area of Dogwood is more suitable for dogs who don’t mind seeing other dogs and people. You still have exclusive use of the field. Dogwood East is a work in progress and some areas will be cordoned off.
