Playtime

Endless fun for dogs who love to play

The Dog Barn knows how important play and socialisation is for a happy and healthy dog. We welcome all dogs and people friendly pups to come and join the fun!


Our large field is the perfect spot for your pup to make friends and enjoy some safe off-lead exercise in our lovely big field with marshals available at all times.

What do I need to bring with me?

Please bring along your dog's up-to-date vaccination record on your first visit, so we can provide you with a free membership card for any future classes you join. We also recommend using non-flexi leads when training your dog. Treats, or any high value reward, such as a favourite toy, are beneficial. We always have lots of options available in store to aid your dog's training.

 

FAQs

What if my dog isn’t keen on other dogs or people?

If you are worried about whether your dog will enjoy playtime and mix with other dogs please come down and take a look. You can have a chat with an instructor who is supervising and take it from there. You may not be able to take part but we will certainly help with advice and support regarding training so that you and your dog may be able to join in further down the line. Getting to the point where you are comfortable to let your dog mix freely with people and other dogs is straight forward for some dogs and a little more tricky for others but we are here to help.

How many dogs can I bring?

Two dogs per owner. If you would like to bring more than 2 dogs, please bring along a friend to help out with this.
