The Dog Barn Playtime
Playtime is a fantastic way to give your dog plenty of physical exercise and mental stimulation.
Playtime is open for all people friendly and sociable dogs. If your dog gets along with others and enjoys socialising, bring them along to one of our playtimes for lots of fun. Your dog can freely mix with others and enjoy playing either on or off lead. It is supervised by our instructors and marshals at all times, who will try and diffuse any tension or problems before they start.
What if my dog isn’t keen on other dogs or people?
If you are worried about whether your dog will enjoy playtime and mix with other dogs please come down and take a look. You can have a chat with an instructor who is supervising and take it from there. You may not be able to take part but we will certainly help with advice and support regarding training so that you and your dog may be able to join in further down the line. Getting to the point where you are comfortable to let your dog mix freely with people and other dogs is straight forward for some dogs and a little more tricky for others but we are here to help.
