The views from Paws for Pleasure are exhilarating.

On a clear day, Haldon Belvedere, some 12 miles away as the crow flies, can be seen in a Southerly direction and Raddon Top in the other! In between are glorious, virtually uninterrupted views of fields, hills and country side!

For the dogs, there are approximately 5 Acres off fields to run around and explore, all enclosed by 1.8 Meter deer fencing.

Our top field is kept mown and is ideal for training purposes, recall, games with balls or frisbees and has a small area for agility fun. Hoops, small jumps, Tyres, slalom sticks, a tunnel etc.
There is also a newly planted native wild flower meadow, ancient Apple Trees, Oaks and Willows in this section.

Our second field is left totally to nature except for the mown pathways running around the streams and pond.

Our “stop spots” have outdoor seating. Ideal for a short stop to admire the views, have a small picnic or drink whilst your Pups are enjoying themselves exploring!

In this field we have a superb variety of wild flowers, old Apple trees, newly planted Apple trees, small areas of thicket, a pond, hedges and some very small shallow streams for your dogs to explore. Great area for dog sniffing and relaxing!

Here, you are guaranteed peace and quiet serenity, and some relaxing times with your dogs.

what do our customers think?

Would definitely recommend using Paws for Pleasure! The booking process was easy, found it easy to get to and even got to meet the owner, who was super friendly and welcoming. The facilities are fantastic, our dog absolutely loved exploring and sniffing to her hearts content! Although not interested in the agility course, the different parts were great and we did try to coax her up the castle but she was too interested in finding mud and rolling around! The pond was lovely and there were places to sit to enjoy watching her explore. She was able to find some mud but luckily there was a shower to sort her out (although she wasn’t too pleased about it!). Will definitely be using Paws for Pleasure again!

we had our first walk today at Paws for Pleaaure with our two woofers Mist & Mabel.?? They absolutely loved it and are fast asleep ? now ❤️. It’s a great place and lovely setting would thoroughly recommend this place. It has lots of different areas which kept our two amused. We will definitely be back Thankyou

My furbabies love the freedom and space this provides. For me it also provides the security that I want for them. Can highly recommend ?

Wow diesel had a fab time. So did I! So lovely to walk around. Let him off the lead and I could totally relax. Over 5 acres of beautiful greenery. Seating area over looking the lake. Wild flowers in the fields and then a mowed area. There is an agility bit as well and a lovely sheltered area where you can shower your dog. Karl is very friendly and helpful. You can even get your car cleaned !!!

Easily the best enclosed field in Devon and Somerset (we’ve been to most of them). Our two sausage dogs had the best hour running through this massive field tonight. A great little agility area is set up as well as a few benches around the space and there are really well kept pathways around the entire field. We’ll definitely be using this space on a regular basis. 10/10.

Have visited a couple of times and have enjoyed our visits. Safe secure & enjoyable time with our German Shepherd who needs his own space. Friendly contact with owners. Great countryside setting with peace and quiet. Perfect reassuring time for us all. Have already booked to return & very happy to recommend.

Superb set up, with lots of different areas to explore.Great training ground to test recall. Added bonus of a stream and a pond. Take a flask and enjoy a cuppa, in the knowledge your dogs are safe. A warm shower is great to wash those muddy paws. It's definitely a pleasure for dogs and their humans.

What an amazing place to take your dogs! It has everything your dogs could want. It’s secure, fun, and loads of space to run free with no worries of bumping into other dogs. I would highly recommend and will definitely be making it a regular visit!
