About Towpath Tails

Exclusive use - no worries about being approached by other people or dogs.

Off-road secure parking - Safe and secure for you and your dogs

2 distinct areas of the park to choose from.

Secure gated access to a private car park with individual secure parking within each play area and dog-proof gates to keep your pets safe.

Nestled within our own Christmas tree farm and alongside the beautiful Kennet and Avon canal in Wootton Rivers, Towpath Tails Dog Park offers all dog owners a peaceful corner of the Wiltshire countryside where they can let their dogs off lead safely to have the fun and freedom they deserve.

Whether you want to train your puppy, let your older dog have a rummage, rootle and a run, improve your dog’s recall or you have a rescue dog where you need a safe space to help you build mutual trust and their confidence – Towpath Tails Dog Park is the perfect place.

We offer two discreet play areas for you and your pups - 

The Paddock is a secure 3/4 acre site with a mix of open space and agility equipment areas as well as access to the natural stream – great for exercise, recall, training and fun

The Coppice is a secure 3 acre site with hundreds of trees enabling your dog to have a great run, lots to find, and a great space for recall and unique training

Both areas have secure access gates, 6ft deer fencing, low level rabbit fencing, additional low level screening, and shelters for the human companions

Our dog exercise areas are both fenced with 6'ft high tensile fencing - for keeping the 'jumpers' safe; and low rabbit fencing for keeping the 'diggers' in.

Practise for pups and pooches

Great to train your puppy, rescue or older dog. 
Ideal for practising recall, obedience and fetch in a safe area.
Jumps and ramps to train agility and a secure space to run training classes.


And your hoomans come too

A shelter for the hoomans – dry and out of the wind / shade in the summer

A great location

We have the pleasure of living right on the Kennet and Avon canal in a beautiful spot in the Pewsey vale in Wiltshire.  We formerly ran a small family grounds maintenance business in the local area and with a 5 acre plot we have diversified to use the land we own wisely and environmentally friendly. Firstly by setting up a small private Christmas Tree Farm (Canalside Christmas Trees) that was running for about 15 years; and now, in response to local requests for somewhere safe and private to be able to let dogs run free and be trained, we have set aside a part of our land as a dog play park.

Meet Hero and Monty

The inspiration behind Towpath Tails

Having been dog owners for over 35 years we know how much it means to have a safe space to let our dogs have some freedom off lead. Our doodles Hero and Monty love to go for long walks across the fields but they also love to tear about and play freely together in the safe space of our land – and so Towpath Tails Dog Park was created.

So - Bring your dog/s, pull up a chair, watch them play while you while away the time reading a book or watching the wildlife, or playing chase or hide and seek amongst the trees with them.

...And meet our newest addition

This is Hendrix who joined the team in November 2022.....
