Children MUST be supervised whilst in the paddocks.
Please remember this is a dog exercise paddock NOT a children's playground.
Responsibility for any child remains entirely with the hirer/user.
If you own a dog currently on the banned breed list (including XL bully ‘types’ from 31.12.23) you MUST have a Certificate of Exemption & Public Liability Insurance. Your dog must also be microchipped and neutered (in line with the government timescales/age).
Your dog must be muzzled and on a lead whilst moving between the parking area and the paddocks. Once you are securely INSIDE THE SMALL ACTIVITY PADDOCK, and you have checked the coded gate is securely closed, you can remove the lead & muzzle. At the end of your visit, you MUST put your dog back on the lead and place the muzzle back on BEFORE entering the holding pen.
NOTE: If the household has more than 1 dog (of any breeds), they can come to the paddocks together. All dogs' leads and muzzles can be removed once in the small activity paddock including the XL Bully's.
If a booking is made with friends or family, and dogs from different households will be mixing in the paddocks, the banned breed will need to remain muzzled and on a lead at all time with a 1:1 handler.
PLEASE DO NOT REGISTER if you do not wish to comply with these requirements. Anyone seen breaking these rules will be banned from Puppy Paddocks and their account deleted.
