In this post I will be talking about secure dog fields near me in Suffolk and they are a fabulous resource for people with a large variety of dogs.

So firstly what is a secure dog field?

Secure dog fields come in many different shapes and size with varying amounts of equipment in them.

But quite simply they are a secure safe area that you can exercise your dog safe in the knowledge that they cannot run off and that you will not encounter other dogs or animals.

Who would need to use a secure dog field?

Secure dog fields are used by people and their dogs for numerous reasons.

  1. For training in a safe environment so that if things don’t go to plan you know your dog will not run into danger for example a road.
  2. For reactive dogs that in normal circumstance owners cannot let off the lead through fear they may harm another dog/person. The field gives the dog a chance to run freely and enjoy itself.
  3. Pet photographer use them as again there are no interruptions from outside factors when trying to take photos.
  4. People use them as a place to meet and let their dogs have some free time together, in the past I have photographed puppy reunions held in secure dog fields so the litter can all meet up in a safe place.
  5. Some dog fields have agility and other equipment in so you can introduce you can have some fun with your dog and try new activities. Just be mindful dogs under the age of 1 years should not be doing too much jumping around on their developing joints.

The list of uses is really endless as everyone will make use of them in different ways but they are definitely a valued resource to have in your area.

The Dog Orchard

The Dog Orchard field is a 2.5 acre area of apple orchard and grassland with a dog secure 1.8 m high fence surrounding the field. It is the perfect place to allow your dog to exercise freely off the lead without the worry of them running off or meeting other dogs. With a mixture of apple orchard and grassland in a parkland style landscape it is a pleasure to walk through for both you and your dog. There is also a shelter with views across the field and orchards, which provides a great place to sit down, relax and watch your dogs enjoy the environment. It also provides shelter from sudden showers.

The dog orchard is one of the venues we use for our gundog training courses.


The field is a fully secure 3 acre grassy area, complete with a 5ft dog-proof fence including a secure car park, so that you and your dog are safe, all of the time whilst at Walkies.

How secure fields can be used in your training

Secure fields offer a safe place to do some training with your dog. Many of our clients are often scared to let their dogs off lead as they don’t trust that their recall will work. The secure fields are great for giving people the confidence to test their skills in a safe environment.
