What size are Dog Fields in the UK?

There is no standard size for all dog fields, as they can range from small paddocks of around an acre where a single field is located to large multi site facilities extending to over 30 acres.

Although most fields are enclosed with 6ft fences, the layout and landscape of the fields are all different and will depend on a number of different factors.

Over 360 field owners across the country have shared the size of their fields or paddocks with us and we were able to establish that the average secure field in the UK is 3.2 acres in size.

Bear in mind when selecting a field that a lot of park owners may have two or more options at a site and these can be different in size-

Bigger does not always mean more space though. Many fields nowadays have features to enhance the visit for your dog such as tunnels-water features-embankments and logs-tyres which are perfect if you your dog wants to explore and enjoys a play time.These additions are not only fun,they play a part in helping your dogs mental and physical stimulation .

Other fields are laid out to maximise the space for runing and burning off energy and are better suited for ball throwing and larger breeds that space to burn off energy.
