It was noticeable that there is a shortage of places where dogs can naturally exercise themselves. Having visited a similar project and recognized there is a need for such a space, we have established Ryedale Dog Field to benefit the local community who like to let their dogs run freely. It has a wide appeal to all dog owners, not just those with reactive dogs as it provides an ideal place to train and learn recall without interruption from other dogs or the fear of your dog running away.
The two acre site is enclosed by 2m fencing with rabbit wire secured to the bottom of the fence to prevent even the most determined of diggers and scramblers from escaping with a bin provided to dispose of poo bags.
The field has a double gate entrance system for extra security and to ensure that no-one else can enter the field during your allotted time.
It also has the benefit of a shelter known as "The Kennel" where walkers and their dogs can take cover from bad weather or shade from the sun.
HOW TO BOOK AND USE RYEDALE DOG FIELD
By booking a time slot you automatically become a member of Ryedale Dog Field. You will have sole use of the field for the period you have booked (unless of course you have decided to share with a friend!)
Follow the simple steps on the booking form to book your time.
Start by selecting how many dogs you are bringing and how long you wish to book the field for, either half an hour or an hour.
Then choose the day and time and you would like to visit. Only available time slots will be shown on the calendar. A summary of the date and time you have selected will appear in the box on the right hand side. To proceed click on “Next”.
You will then need to complete a very short questionnaire giving some details about yourself. (This is purely for our own records and will not be passed on to any third parties). Once completed click on the “Pay Now” button in the box on the right hand side where you will be directed to purchase the time slot. Once this procedure has been completed your booking will be confirmed and you will also receive a confirmation email with details of your booking and how to get into the field. (If you do not receive your confirmation email please check your spam box and if you still can’t find it please contact us).
When you arrive to use the field there are allocated parking spaces on hard standing for your convenience. Open the padlock on the gate using the code in your email and use the same padlock to lock the second gate into the field for the duration of your chosen time slot. This will prevent anyone else entering the field at the same time as you. Please pick up all your dog poo, you must remember to bring your own poo bags. There is a bin provided for their disposal. Please ensure you leave the field promptly so the next member can have access. Your timeslot does include getting your dog(s) back into your vehicle/away from the field to prevent interference with the next user. When leaving, replace the padlock on the first gate. If you are aware of any misuse of the field or rules then please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can investigate thoroughly.
SAVE THE WEBSITE ON YOUR SMART PHONE AS AN APP
please follow these instructions:
Launch Chrome for Android and open the website or web page you want to pin to your home screen. This is the booking page link http://www.ryedaledogfield.co.uk/book-online
Tap the menu button and tap Add to homescreen. You’ll be able to enter a name for the shortcut and then Chrome will add it to your home screen.
The icon will appear on your home screen like any other app shortcut or widget, so you can drag it around and put it wherever you like. Chrome for Android loads the website as a “web app” when you tap the icon, so it will get its own entry in the app switcher and won’t have any browser interface getting in the way.
Other popular Android browsers also offer this feature. For example, Firefox for Android can do this if you tap the menu button, tap the Page option, and tap Add to Home Screen.
Launch the Safari browser on Apple’s iOS and navigate to the website or web page you want to add to your home screen. This is the link to the booking page http://www.ryedaledogfield.co.uk/book-online
Tap the Share button on the browser’s toolbar — that’s the rectangle with an arrow pointing upward. It’s on the bar at the top of the screen on an iPad, and on the bar at the bottom of the screen on an iPhone or iPod Touch. Tap the Add to Home Screen icon in the Share menu.
You’ll be prompted to name the shortcut before tapping the Add button. The shortcut can be dragged around and placed anywhere, including in app folders — just like a normal app icon. (To create app folders on iOS, touch-and-drag an app’s icon onto another app’s icon and hold it there for a moment.) When you tap the icon, it will load the website in a normal tab inside the Safari browser app.
