Dogwood Adventure Play Secure Enclosed Dog Field Darlington Stockton Teesside County Durham

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 newest, slightly larger field has adventure play equipment including a tunnel, house with slide, Wobble Walk and A-frame, as well as a picnic bench, paddle pool and climbing logs. The Sensory Garden full of dog-friendly plants will soon be open! Fencing is 2m high and buried below the ground. Dogwood East is sole-use with a car parking space inside the field so you can lock the gate behind you. As there is a training paddock next door to Dogwood East there could be other dogs and vehicles in the main car park.
