You can enjoy private use of Hope Rescue's training paddock in spring and summer, which is surrounded by specialist dog-proof fencing to give you a secure space for some off-lead or long-lead training with your dog. 

** Please note that our paddock is closed over the winter months, from 1 November to 31 March **

Each booking will last for 30 minutes, which will give you plenty of time to exercise your dog with a 15 minute change-over time between sessions so that you and your dog can enjoy the space in private. This is especially valuable for dogs who are nervous or uncomfortable around other dogs.

The cost is just £5 per half hour session.

Our address is Hope Rescue, Old Llanharry Road, Llanharran, CF72 9NH (for satnav use CF72 9RA)

Once your booking is complete, you will receive an email with information on how to access the paddock area.
