I started the doggie social just for fun and also to help my dog Buddy socialise better with other dogs off lead in a safe environment. We started small about a year ago but as word has spread the group has grown. It’s lovely to see so many dogs together playing and doing what dogs do best. I am not trained in any way but just love dogs (and people).

We meet on the tennis courts next to the cricket pitch every Sunday from 10–11am (weather permitting). All dogs are guaranteed to leave with a wagging tail! So if you have a four-legged friend, come along and join in the fun.  We also have a Facebook page www.facebook.com/fairfielddoggiesocial
