About Us

Making the commitment to own a dog is not to be taken lightly, intelligent, loving and loyal, dogs bring great joy to our lives. Our indoor park facility brings you so much more opportunity then just letting your dog run off some steam.

Owning a dog is a way of life, if you are new to dog ownership, you will have to change your lifestyle to suit. Had dogs for years? you will be amazed at how much you can still learn... Joining the park, yes gives you access to the safe off-lead freedom of an indoor dog park, in addition you will have experience dog loving people to guide you and help you through owning a dog... learn how simple changes to your dog's diet can improve health, condition and temperament and how simple training routines will not only improve your dog's behaviour, but will also tire your dog out faster than long walks and exercise.

Our understanding of dog ownership and how we get the most from our dogs has changed so much in the last 20 years. Come join us today for more than just a Play Park.


Thanks for getting to know us.

Chris
Director

Hi I'm Chris

I spend most of my time at the Park, working in and amongst all our gorgeous dogs and supportive human members.

I see my role in Dogs Playpark as the drive behind the company, moving it forward and ensuring that we never lose sight of where and why this venture was started. 

Our message is simple, 'Improving the lives of dogs with every interaction' and this is something we can all do for our dogs.
Better Diets - Better exercise - Better training - Better and Happier Lives.

Jenny
Dogs Playpark Manager

After previously running my own training business for the past 4 and offering soley 121 private training prior to this I have worked with over 1000 dogs with a variety of training and behavioural needs.
Prior to working with Dogs Playpark I have been invited into schools to help educate children on the correct way to handle and respect dogs which is something we want to continue with the Playpark.

I have a high standard of ethics when it comes to training and handling animals. It’s vital that anyone working with animals ensures they keep up to date with modern dog training and methods. This standard of ethics is seen in all our staff's in house training.

Long gone are the days where owners are encourage to physically punish their pets. We are thankfully in an age were science has taught us to instead of thinking of our dog as being bad, to think of our dog as not understanding what is asked of him/her.

This leads us to think not of punishment for the dog, but instead to think of further training to help them understand.

If you have any Playpark of training enquires please feel free to contact me at any time.
