Are you looking for somewhere to allow your dog some off-lead exercise?
Would you like them to be able to run and play in a securely fenced area?
Are you training your dog in obedience or recall?
Our secure exercise paddock may be just what you need …
“Coopers” is a flat grass field adjacent to our car park (outlined in green) and fenced to RSPCA guidelines. After numerous postponements due to the Covid Lockdown, Coopers opened on 30 March 2021.
The field is open 7 days a week and can be hired for 30 or 60 minute sessions, between 8.30am and 4.30pm. Hire fees are £5.00 per 30 minute session and £7.50 per 60 minutes. Sessions are for up to 2 dogs, but you can bring a maximum of 4, with £2.50 extra charge for each additional dog – please choose the correct option when booking.
All money comes direct to our Branch funds, to support the Venton Centre and our animal welfare work in Cornwall.
We have a some terms and conditions, which we will ask you to abide by, intended to keep you and your dog(s) safe and ensure other users or those working at the Centre are not adversely affected by hire of the field.
Please Note: We have had several incidents recently when customers using Coopers are moving to and from the field and their cars with their dog(s) off lead. You are specifically requested in the booking terms to ensure all dogs are on leads until they are safely inside Coopers with both gates closed, and again when returning to your vehicle. Sadly, if these rules cannot be observed by all Coopers’ customers, we will have to re-consider whether we can continue opening the field for public hire, which would be a great shame. Your co-operation is expected and appreciated.
Please read the full T&Cs below.
All sessions must be booked via the secure booking and payment package through Paypal. There is no option to book or pay at the Centre, so please ensure your confirmation email is received prior to arriving for your session. We are permitted to open this facility under Covid-19 restrictions, but additional rules currently apply (see below). These will be reviewed and amended as Government guidance changes.
We will require a copy of the current vaccination certificate for each dog that will accompany you. We reserve the right to cancel your booking if the vaccination certificate is not uploaded when you complete your first booking. This will also need to be renewed when your annual boosters are done. When you book, you will be redirected to the form to upload this information. Please note: You only need to do this once and update when vaccinations are renewed, so when you make subsequent bookings please close this form without completing it.
On completion of your booking, you will receive an email confirmation.
Please read our T&Cs and once you are ready to book, please see details at the bottom of the page.
