A NEW pupose-built dog training arena has been built in north Oxfordshire.

The 7,000 sq ft facility, behind Country Secrets garden and gift centre in Middleton Cheney, is largely indoors with a separate paddock offering room for groups of up to 25 dogs and their owners to take part in classes at all levels of proficiency.

Owner Sally Stephens said: “Having been involved in agility training with my own dogs for some time I became aware of a lack of all-weather spaces for classes to be run in the region.

There has been an increasing demand for this type of facility. So many people are interested in taking dog training to a new level.”

Anyone interested in hiring the building should call 01295 713570 or visit the website: www.countrysecrets.co.uk for details of classes, cost and availability.
