The field that you can rent is a lovely field good for dogs with bad recall, but I just need to say it’s not the best for dogs that fixate or are reactive as you can see everything and everyone walking past, so best to have them on a training lead.The fence is secure with a wire fencing filling the gaps but if your dog wants to get through it will.
We used their private hire field today for two hours with our two rescue dogs, and they loved it. So much space for them to bomb around in, and even a picnic bench for us to take a break and a coffee. Well organised, decent parking and fencing. Will definitely be back. (The picture is of our two for reference and cuteness)

Big thank you to Animal Country Club for looking after our Bubble whilst we were in Dubai. As always their care is excellent I cannot fault them. Bubble is nearly 14 with a heart condition and I wouldn’t trust anybody else with her. Thank you for your care.
Amazing place! I board my 3 dogs here and they always come back happy! My eldest dog suffers from epilepsy but I never worry myself when the staff here care for him, I know he is being looked after so well.
I can't recommend this place enough. They are kind professional, skilled, very alert to any problems that may arise and I trust them 100%. I am a long term repeat customer, and several of my animals have health conditions that require a lot of care, and they treat them with love respect and total dedication.They are one in a million.
Reggie absolutely loves it in here! He gives it 5/5
I left my little Jasper with them for the first time recently. I was so worried how he would be as he was a rescue dog. He was so well looked after and and so happy and content when he came home. The staff are so lovely and caring. Wouldn’t leave him anywhere else now. My friend recommended me to them. Would definitely recommend to everyone.
A late review but I just wanted to say thank you so much to all the staff for taking great care of Molly and Kita for their VERY long stay! You were very professional and accommodated me numerous times with visits and stay extensions , it was much appreciated.For their very first stay in a cattery I think I found the perfect one �Many thanks , Gemma & family.
