Please be aware that when you come to The Dog
Play Centre, there are two domestic residences next to our site so please try
to keep all noise to a minimum. We ask you to kindly refrain from parking
near/in front of their properties or blocking their access. The Dog Play Centre
parking runs along the left side of the yard.
The Freedom Field runs out with daycare times
therefore there are no staff members or other dogs on site. There is no need to
ring bell as advised on gate as this is for people visiting during daycare
opening times. Ringing the bell also interrupts the work of the groomer, so
please refrain from doing so unless it is an emergency. Please be aware the
groomer may not always be on site during your visit.
There are two water taps at the bottom end of
the building near the front door, feel free to use these for water for your
dog, however can we please ask that you bring your own water bowls.
When using the freedom field please clean up
after your dog. There are bins located at the back door for poo bag disposal.
By collecting our own dog’s poo, we are stopping the spread of disease. We
appreciate your cooperation in this matter.
Please keep all dogs on their lead until fully
inside the enclosure when coming to and from your car.
Please use our postcode EH55 8LD, or look up
BAADS Cattery on Google for directions (we are through the trees from the
Cattery between there and West Mains Farm). Our Facebook page map is incorrect
and is awaiting correction.
When you arrive on site you will need our padlock
code to access the gate. This will be sent to you once payment has cleared in
our account. Once you have accessed the padlock, please go through the double
gates and take the path to your right which leads to another double gate. This
takes you into our play area and the field is then split into sections. You
may access all sections during your visit, but you must close all gates behind
you. If you are unsure if anyone is in the field, please check by going in
WITHOUT YOUR DOG first of all. Dogs that use our field may be aggressive,
nervous or recovering from illness. It is best to keep all dogs on lead and
separate until in the field.
You may use our equipment in the Freedom Field,
however, please pick anything up should your dog knock it down and put our
things back where you found them (chairs from marquee etc, as not everything is
weather proof). if anything is amiss please let us know straight away via email
Please check with staff for the cost of your
session (dependant on the amount of dogs you bring). All payments should be
made by BACS/FASTER PAYMENTS through your bank account to THE DOG PLAY CENTRE,
84209868. Thank you. ONCE
payment has been received we will send your code for the padlock to allow
access via our double gated entry system.
Please call 07449 457 442 if you have any
queries, but please bear in mind that staff are off duty and therefore may not
be able to answer your call.
Many visitors to the field have nervous,
anxious, stressed or reactive dogs so keep your distance and do not allow your
dogs to wander up to other dogs.
Thanks and have fun!
