If you have a young puppy that needs training or a hunting dog that has a lot of energy to burn, private dog walking grounds can provide the perfect space.
Whether you want to rent it out for your just and pooch or with a group of friends, Norfolk has plenty of secure spaces for you to rent.
Damion Vincent is the owner of Fetch Dog Walking and Training – which was recently named the best dog walking company in the country – and uses them regularly for his work.
The 41-year-old, from Horsham St Faith, said: “They have become very popular, especially in the last few years. They are amazing and I think more are going to appear.
“A dog is not designed to be on a leash, he wants to be allowed to explore. It’s such a simple concept, I don’t know why it didn’t happen sooner.
“They’re great if your dog has a bad memory or can be responsive in public spaces. It is also ideal for coaches to hire.
“I have a client with dogs who cannot be left on a leash but need to be exercised. She pays for the land and I take them there.
“It’s full of smells and smells from previous dogs. They love it.”
