1-1 Field Trips
We collect your dog from home in our customised vehicle and take them to Dogwood Adventure Play where they spend time playing, discovering, practicing parkour and engaging in scentwork in our enriching environment - as well as relaxing in our Sensory Garden. At the end of the session dogs return home tired and happy. We'll even send you Pupdates of your dog enjoying themselves.
If your dog prefers not to meet others, this service is ideal as they have the field all to themselves for 50 minutes with undivided attention from the team. This means that we can also work on aspects of training that you need help with.
Individual Field Trips can take place at most times of the day but advance booking is essential. All dogs must be up to date with vaccinations (or titer tested) and preventative treatments.
£25-£30 (depending on pick up zone) for 1-2 dogs from the same household. £10 weekend surcharge.
Social Enrichment - fulfils dogs’ needs to interact with others. Your dog receives our full attention, interacting with us for the whole time.
Occupational Enrichment - Hey dog, get a job! Dogwood’s sports-orientated activities like canine parkour or scent work challenges dogs and encourages them to reach their potential.
Physical enrichment - not just about exercise! Play is an effective way to physically enrich your dog’s world. Studies show interaction with games may decrease a dog’s response to environmental triggers like noise, unfamiliar people and dogs as well as reduce excessive barking, destructive behaviours and digging. Digging is a normal behaviour for many dogs so stifling that behaviour may be difficult and lead to other behaviour issues. Our field has a digging pit that we load with fun things for your dog to find. Play uses physical energy, channels mental energy and builds confidence and relationships like nothing else!
Sensory Enrichment - a variety of rural sights, smells, textures, tastes and sounds all stimulate your dog’s senses. We give your dog opportunity to walk on different surfaces, smell, see, hear and even taste new things.
Nutritional Enrichment - dogs naturally forage for food so we lay scent trails with different flavours and textures of food and play foraging games for dogs to hunt and search.
YOU can relax after a busy day knowing that your dog will be tired and happy - and better trained! - when you get home.
