K9 Acres Ltd. is a large purpose built secure dog field facility available for private individual hire. The field can be hired for either a single dog or a small group.It is based in the rural village of Longdon in between the towns of Lichfield and Rugeley in Staffordshire, and is approximately 7 acres in size and secured by 6' fencing throughout.
K9 Acres Ltd. was created out of our passion for animal welfare and our understanding of the needs of some dogs and their owners. We are a small family run business, and I have many years of experience with both dogs and as a professional show jumper with horses too.
Thankfully many dogs are free to be able to enjoy the beauty of our countryside. However more recently through my time as a dog walker, I was dismayed to discover that many dogs could not get the exercise they needed. These dogs sometimes had behavioural issues and could not responsibly be let off lead in public places.
I've also met many owners who for one reason or another, simply do not feel safe or comfortable having their dog 'off lead'. There is nothing better than a walk in the countryside with your dog, but sometimes people prefer to avoid the typical distractions we find in public such as other dogs, people, horses, cyclists, joggers etc.
Often new dog owners and puppies sometimes need a private space to help with initial basic training and control. Also people with rescue dogs often need a private secure place to help build trust and confidence. We ourselves have two rescue dogs and found the field invaluable for basic training and getting good recall in the early days of ownership.
Drawing on this experience we felt that this facility should focus on the need of individual owners and their own dog's specific requirements. Hence our fixed policy that the field should be guaranteed to be private for each of our customers for the duration of their booking, and exclusive for their own specific needs and personal use.
Customers can hire the field for a single dog, or small groups providing nearly 6 acres of freedom dedicated to your needs. You can of course also share the field with a friend to enjoy together, please note however we do have a planning restriction limiting the site to 2 vehicles for the duration of each booking. (Please see terms and conditions for details).
Privacy, security and relaxation for our customers is the essence of K9 Acres Ltd. We have been providing this facility for nearly 2 years now and have thoroughly enjoyed witnessing the benefits realised over that time for our customers and their dogs. We aim to keep improving our service and facility and remain committed to delivering a high quality, affordable and friendly environment for all our customers to enjoy.
