Paw Print Meadow was created because we needed somewhere safe to run, play and train our own dogs. We are a Trio of professional animal carers, with a huge amount of experience behind us. We train our own dogs, show them, and compete in agility competitions. We have qualifications at NVQ animal care and grooming.
When talking with our clients and other dog walkers, we found that a majority were unable to let their dog off the lead in local parks. Even if legislation allowed dogs off-lead, the owners felt uneasy because their dogs might run away chasing after another dogs – which we all know can easily happen! Others report being approached, and their pets even attacked, by aggressive dogs. Others have been verbally abused by the ‘dog hater brigade’ Recall training was also proving to be very frustrating in such a public environment. This, together with the fact that councils are under extreme pressure to make public areas dog free, we decided that there was a need for a safe, away from it all area where our dogs can be exercised safely.
As the UK dog population continues to grow, and prime public areas seem to be disappearing, this is only going to become more of an issue. We have therefore opened our own field to anyone who feels they want to get away from it all with their pets.
We offer private hire on an hourly basis. We also have limited vacancies for a collection and drop off service, where we will exercise your dogs off lead either in a group or on a one to one basis.
