  10. Do not allow your dog(s) to dig in any part of the venue, at any time. If they do attempt to dig stop them immediately as holes caused by your dog could pose a risk to other users. If your dog(s) dig(s) please attempt to fill the hole. If your dog(s) causes significant damage, please inform Wagtails immediately to enable repair.
  11. The field is surrounded by a fence 2 metres high and has a return on the ground, however if your dog(s) can jump high fences or is likely to dig themselves out then the field may not be totally secure for you. This is a secure field and not a prison.  I cannot accept responsibility for escapees.
  12. The Client shall keep Wagtails clean and tidy and shall ensure that all litter and refuse generated by the Client is taken home with them.  All dog excrement MUST be picked up using ONLY the poo bags provided and then placed in the purple dog poo bin. Not picking up after your dog(s) could result in the Client being banned from any future use of the field. Poo bags should NOT be placed inside the toilet in the shed.
  13. The Client should be aware that the ground is uneven in places and caution must be taken. The Client is using the field at their own risk.
  14. The Client is advised to wear sensible and appropriate footwear to suit the grounds and conditions.
  15. The boundary and security of the field is checked on a daily basis, however the Client is advised to check that they are satisfied with the height, safety and condition of the fencing and to inform Wagtails on 07789 866960 of any discrepancies.
  16. The Client must at all times take good care of Wagtails and will be responsible for any damage to Wagtails or any part of it or any equipment or other property of Wagtails whether forming part of the hire or not.

  20. If the Client needs to use the toilet facilities and they are on their own, the dog(s) will need to be either taken into the toilet with them, or returned to the car for safety.  You will find that there are tether points on the barn in the car park that dogs can be secured to via their lead.  Please ensure that if you use the facilities you read the instructions on how to leave the toilet empty.  It is not pleasant to enter the toilet and find it full.
  21. At no time should a dog(s) be tethered to any structures on site i.e. fencing, posts, gates etc, there are tether points on the barn in the car park area.
  22. Dogs should not be left unattended at any time. You should accompany your dog(s) at all times, so that you are aware of what your pet is doing and that they are safe and complying to these terms and conditions. 
  23. Do not allow any dogs out of your vehicle until you have driven through both sets of metal gates, the first is the entry gate into the site, the second is the gate into the car park.  Once in the car park area the dog can be released from the vehicle ,failure to follow this rule could result in the client being banned from the field.
  24. If you have a dog that is on the DDA list (including XL Bullys) my insurers have confirmed you may use the field if you comply with the following rules:
  • The dog is registered with the index of exempted dog (IED) and a copy of the life certificate is obtained and provided to us in the event of a claim.
  • A copy of the public liability insurance certificate for the dog is obtained and provided to us in the event of a claim.
  • The dog handler ratio is 1:1 with their handler at all times.
  • The dog is Neutered – in line with Government Rules.
  • The dog is Micro Chipped.
  • The field is private property with no public access passing through.  Wagtails is private property.
  • The field is securely fenced and locked so the dog cannot escape.  The client is advised to check that they are satisfied with the height, safety and condition of the fencing.
  • The dog is kept on a lead and muzzled until the gate is shut when entering the field.
  • The dog is put back on a lead and muzzled before opening the gate to leave the field.
  • You can remove the lead and muzzle once inside the secured field.
  • If the household has more than 1 dog, they can come to the field together, but the banned breed dog must have its own handler and then another member of the same household needs to be present to supervise the other dogs. If there is more than 1 banned breed in the household they can come together but each dog must have its own handler.


  1. The gate codes will be sent via text to your mobile phone, please note there is a padlock on the first gate which requires the button on the bottom to be pressed to release the lock, there is also a gate code into the car park.  Wagtails recommend that you keep it on you during your visit.
  2. Please note that appointments have a 15 minute gap between them to ensure that where possible only one client is on the premises at a time. This allows you time to leave before the other person arrives. You MUST leave the car park at the end of your appointment time.
  3. Please do not arrive more than 5 minutes early for your appointment, if you arrive and see a car in the car park or somebody using the field please remain outside the gate by the barn. This is of the UTMOST importance as the previous client’s dog(s) may need space from either you or your dog(s)! 
  4. When you enter through the main gate, please close the main gate behind you, you do not have to lock the padlock when you are in the field; and then drive down the track towards the barn. Please wait in this area if there is someone still in the field or car park.
  5.  Once the other car has left the car park they will close and lock the gate. I ask everyone to do this to ensure that people can only enter if they know the code
  6. If they stay past your start time and do not appear to be leaving please call me on 07789 866960.
  7. Once the field/car park is empty you can drive to the gate, input the code and swing the gate back to the barn wall to allow you to drive into the car park. Close the gate behind you and once the lock has latched you can then let your dog(s) out of the car from that point. Enter into the field and close the pedestrian gate behind you. This means that for extra security, you now have three closed gates between you and the road you entered on. 
  8. If you arrive late to your appointment you must still leave at the end of your appointment time. Please contact me if you do arrive late and I will let you know if there is another client after you, if I can extend your appointment I will. Anyone who overstays more than three times will be banned from the field.
  9. When you leave there may be someone waiting by the barn ready for you to leave. You must lock the gate when you exit the car park, whether someone is waiting or not, this is to ensure that only clients who have the code can enter the field
  10. If anyone enters the car park while you are using the field please call me immediately on 07789 866960 as people need to wait outside.
  11. The onus is on the person leaving to lock the front gate again (as this should be kept locked at all times). 
  12. Please note that ALL GATES must be closed behind you when you leave the premises. 
  13. The Client shall ensure that the premises are secure at all times and shall not divulge any lock combination codes under any circumstances to any third parties.
