THE IMPORTANT STUFF
Use of the field is entirely at your own risk. Woof Woof Meadow accepts no liability for the death of or any injury of any person or dog, or for damage to any property. Woof Woof Meadow also accepts no liability for any losses, claims, actions, damages, costs, expenses or other liability incurred whilst onsite. Yours and your dogs’ behaviour and actions are your sole responsibility and no claim can be made against Woof Woof Meadow.
You are liable for any damage caused inside and outside of the field by you, your dog(s) or any person in your party. All dogs must be covered under their own third party insurance (public liability insurance). This is usually included in your pet insurance. Dogs Trust provides reasonably priced third party cover.
ARRIVING & LEAVING
You and your dogs must remain in your vehicle until it is your turn to use the field. Allowing dogs out of cars in the car park when the previous user is in the field could have consequences for nervous and/or reactive dogs.
Vehicles must never be parked on the field. You must only ever park on the x-grid grassed area through the gate and to the right. This is the equivalent of hard standing.
Never enter the field while somebody else is in it. There is a lock to lock yourself in to prevent anyone from entering when you are inside.
If the previous appointment is still in the field when your booking starts, please inform us immediately.
Woof Woof Meadow is a safe and peaceful retreat for everybody. Please give people and dogs plenty of space. Any disrespectful behaviour will lead to refusal of future use.
Please respect our neighbours’ privacy. Woof Woof Meadow is not affiliated with neighbouring residential properties. Please do not enter their land or be disrespectful to them.
Although Woof Woof Meadow is intended to be a safe space for all dogs, it is a condition of our Environmental Health department that dogs who exhibit excessive, persistent patterns of barking behaviour will be restricted from using the facility.
