Discovering London Dog Exercise Areas

When I first moved to London from the continent, I was very impressed by the fact that, in most parks, dogs could run off-leash. That is great if you have a very-well-trained and obedient dog. But what if your dog is not yet there (because maybe has a high drive, a bad recall, does not get along well with other dogs), or simply the park overlooks busy roads and you don’t want to take any risks?

Having a dog with a high drive myself (despite our continuous training), I could not trust Argo off-leash in open parks. So I began looking for enclosed dog exercise areas and mapping them out. I will tell you more about it in this blog post!

This post will be updated adding each new dog area review I publish on the blog. To keep up to date I also advise you to follow The Londog on Facebook, to be alerted when a new review is live.
