THE CWTCH ANIMAL HOMESTAY
South Wales' first purpose-built secure Dog Adventure Parks. Here at The Cwtch we offer a safe, stimulating and enriching environment for you and your dog to enjoy quality time together.
Our secure fields are situated in the heart of the Welsh countryside, surrounded by 29 acres of organic fields and woodland. We are conveniently located near the M4, just 1.6 miles from Cwmbran and 3.6 miles from Newport.
Our secure dog parks are ideal for dogs that cannot be let off the lead in public places – perhaps they don’t enjoy meeting other dogs, or for those that lack recall. For dogs that feel anxious or nervous around other dogs, reactive dogs or simply just for dogs that need to work on training in an enclosed, safe environment. To put it simply, our secure dog parks are perfect for anyone who enjoys watching their dog be happy, fulfilled and free.
Our secure parks are available for private hire. You will have exclusive use of either our Dog Adventure Park or Dog Sensory Park. Our coded gate system, and carefully planned time slots mean that you won't be disturbed. Our parks are surrounded by 6 foot fencing, with a further foot dug into the ground for extra safety.
Our Dog Adventure Park
ARE YOU LOOKING FOR A SAFE AND SECURE LOCATION TO WALK YOUR DOG?
Dogs are social creatures who rely on physical and mental stimulation for their health and happiness. Here at The Cwtch Animal Homestay we have created a safe, secure and stimulating environment for you and your dog to enjoy together. Our Dog Adventure Park has over 8 different types of fun adventure play equipment and obstacles. These introduce dogs to the world of jumping, climbing, balancing, and crawling, helping with confidence and overcoming fears or anxieties. Our Dog Adventure Park provides low-impact but challenging activities, meaning it is suitable for dogs of all age and fitness levels. Our secure dog field is available for sole use, or you can share your booking with a friend.
Our Dog Sensory Park
DOES YOUR DOG GET THE STIMULATION IT NEEDS?
Did you know that dogs have 2.5 million receptors in their nose? Our Dog Sensory Park reduces stress and anxiety, whilst providing stimulation and enrichment. In simple terms, our Dog Sensory Park is the way to your dogs heart and nose! The park is made up of a variety of different obstacles, smells and textures to engage all of your dogs' senses, stimulating them both mentally and physically. Combining elements of both adventure and sensory experiences, our Dog Sensory Park is the first in South Wales. It provides a new and exciting activity to keep your dog fit, healthy and happy. Obstacles in the park are repurposed for dog adventure play, whilst our sensory experience builds confidence in nervous dogs and calms down hyperactive dogs, creating better focus and control. Our Sensory Park is available for sole use, or you can share your booking with a friend.
