WHAT IS RUN FREE?
Run Free provides a safe and secure dog walking field where you can take your best friend to run free off the lead. Our exclusive enclosed dog parks have 6ft high fences, which are also dug into the ground to prevent even the greatest escape artists!
The exercise field is perfect for sensitive or nervous dogs who have had bad experiences with other dogs and can no longer socialise safely with others, or dogs who have a poor recall and cannot be let off lead and relied upon to come back. Users of the field will have exclusive use of it during their session so they can relax in the knowledge that their dog is safe, secure and able to run free and play without being disturbed. The field is perfect for puppies and rescue dogs, or anyone wishing to train their dog off the leash in an enclosed area.
We also welcome energetic or boisterous dogs that just want to run free and have fun.
Our fields are away from livestock, traffic and the public.
The Run Free field is the perfect place for you to catch up with your friends whilst your dogs safely run free. Just book one session for all of your dogs, relax at our picnic table, and let the dogs have fun.
At Run Free we are committed to giving you and your dog a great experience. Our fields are regularly checked for cleanliness, the grass maintained, the fences inspected and with car parking on site, there has never been a better time to visit Run Free.
