Alvechurch Dog Park Terms & Conditions
Welcome to Alvechurch Dog Park – where play time is a priority but in a safe environment. When you book a session at Alvechurch Dog Park you agree to the terms and conditions of use. Please make yourself familiar of all T&C’s below before your session.
The Golden Rules
Sessions start on the hour or half hour – depending if you have booked a 55-minute session or a 25-minute session. Please leave swiftly after your session, anyone who overstays may be restricted and/or refused from using the park in future.
Please arrive no more than 2-3 minutes early before your session as this can be a distraction and/or stressful for reactive dogs that may be using the park. DO NOT let your dog loose in the car park. There are livestock in fields nearby. Remain in your car until the park becomes free. The car park is not to be used to walk your dog.
YOU MUST ENSURE THE PARK IS CLEAN AND TIDY BEFORE YOUR SESSION ENDS. FAILURE TO PICK UP DOG WASTE, TOYS OR RUBBISH WILL RESULT IN REFUSAL TO FUTURE USE. If you find dog waste from a previous user, please pick it up and let us know.
Please ensure all gates are closed AND locked after you. Leaving gates open or unlocked will result in banning from future use of the park.

It is the responsibility of those using the field to allow sufficient time at the end of their session to get their dog/s on lead and off the field before the next client is due. Your dogs must be on a lead when entering the field and leaving, and not let off before the gate is securely closed. Dogs must NOT be loose in the car park at any time. If your dog has any behavioral issues with people/dogs, it is your responsibility to ensure they are under control and cannot cause harm to others. We cannot be held liable if dogs are out of control.
Dogs must remain in the owner’s vehicle until the previous users have left the field and have got their dogs into their vehicle. The car park is not to be used to walk your dog.
– All customers are to park in the car parking area in front of the secure field and not on the road or in the field. We will not be held responsible for any damage caused to your cars or possessions. Please park considerately to ensure that additional cars can fit and no gates are blocked.
