Dogs have always been at Holly Lodge Farm; Jack Russells, Weimaraners, Cocker Spaniels, Border Terriers and now a Norfolk Terrier – Basil! We have lots of space and great walks on our doorstep, but with new puppies to train and bring up, we ventured to our local training classes and found that many people are frustrated with the lack of space where they can take their dogs off their leads and let them run free, hence Holly Lodge Dog Field was born!
The paddocks at Holly Lodge provide areas where many different dogs can practice their training, feel safe and secure from other dogs or simply run free with the wind in their ears. In order to provide all of our customers with the full amount of time that they have booked, we offer 1 hour sessions in the field. This hour includes a full 50 minutes of play time and 10 minutes at the end of the session for owners to clear up any toys, pick up after their dogs, hose down any muddy paws and vacate the car park in time for the next customer. We ask this of our customers so that everybody has exclusive use of the paddocks.
The dog paddocks were created as safe spaces to encourage dog owners to come and enjoy the countryside and time with their four legged friends.
The Paddocks are located on our farm just outside Alconbury in Cambridgeshire. Head to our contact page for our postcode and a map.
North Paddock is a secure three-acre field which offers a small wooded area, a large tree for plenty of shade in the summer months and lots of fun obstacles for training your dog. We also have a big log pile and straw bales for the pawfect snap of your pooch!
South Paddock is a secure six-acre field which offers a large, more open space for endless zoomies and running! We have a large mound in the middle for beautiful 360° views of the Cambridgeshire Countryside. South Paddock offers a great space for dogs that love to run free with their pals!
Both North and South Paddock contain the below added extras:
Fresh Water & Cleaning Facilities
The fenced car park is accessed by a coded automatic gate. There is fresh water for dogs to drink, a hose pipe and hard standing area for you to clean your dog after your session, and a toilet for the pawrents!
Waste Bins & Poo Sacks
Waste bins and poo sacks are available for you to clear up after your pooch. We are currently working on a more environmentally friendly poo recycling project in order to help us use waste in a positive way.
Toilet Facilities for Pawrents
There is a portaloo available at both fields.
