What’s DIY Dogs Play?

DIY Dogs Play comprises of two individual floodlit, secure dog runs, each run has its own parking space for one car within the secure run itself and each booking is for your exclusive use. Choose from either 30mins or one-hour slots, between 8am and 10pm, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

Booking is only available via our live online booking system which lists all the dates and times we have available for your exclusive use of either run, at a time that best suits you and your dog/s. 

Our runs have not only been designed to suit the needs of your dog – but for your needs as well, so along with integrated secure parking for your car each run has over 200m of perimeter paths, which means that within a 30 min slot you can easily cover 1km – without getting muddy feet and an average-sized dog chasing a ball from a thrower can happily cover a healthy 4km (as measured by Fitbit & Fitbark) plus a range of toys and even some poo bags should you forget or run out.

The Basics

Each booking entitles you to bring up to 3 dogs, one car which you park within the secure run you are allocated (please note no additional parking is available onsite or off site within walking distance) and up to 4 people. We have some rules which help us keep it clean and keep it green – if you’re a first time user or find something not quite right all the answers will be in the Field Rules section.

Perimeter fencing is just under 2m high deer fencing specifically designed for safety (if a dog runs into the fence it is designed to “bounce” the dog back. Please note that this fencing has 15cm square gaps at the bottom so tiny dogs and small pups may not be suitable. 

 We think this is enough to secure most dogs, but if yours likes to climb (believe us, you’ll know if you they do!) be aware that a 2m high fence may not be enough to keep them in the run.

Our two runs are designed to comply with any future potential COVID lockdown guidelines. This means that in any future lockdown scenario, your entire family bubble, as long as you’re with your dog, will legally be able to exercise using this facility for your exclusive booking period. Please remember to check all the latest government guidelines before booking at DIY Dogs Play.

Why & How We Set Up DIY Dogs Play

We are a family business that’s been providing supervised dog daycare for over five years. We have a 5-star license issued by the local council and we care for as many as 48 dogs playing within a large, single-pack environment.

Our four-legged Dogs Play guests play within a range of indoor, outdoor, all-weather and secure grass runs and are fully supervised at all times by animal-care-qualified staff, at a ratio of 1-8.

Since opening in 2015 we were frequently asked if we could rent out the facilities to dog owners. But because we use them constantly, this just hasn’t been possible.

In March 2020, COVID 19 changed all that…

Along with the rest of the country, we found ourselves closed for 11 weeks. But from the outset of that first lockdown, we worked hard to make it possible – and safe – for all our daycare customers to reserve isolated time slots for their own dogs-play and exercise. We were fully booked in no time – and we learned lots from observing and interviewing users of the new ‘Do It Yourself’ service. All of the great feedback helped us design and build DIY Dogs Play!
