I have known Celine since 2000 when I worked as an RSPCA Inspector in the Bristol area and where she was working as Dog Warden. I don't think I've ever met anyone more caring, dedicated or knowledgeable when it comes to dogs and animal welfare. I would recommend her dog training classes to anyone who wants to have a better bond or just more fun with their dog.

As a vet who has worked with Celine, I find that her compassion and dedication to the welfare of dogs always shines through. I have met several of her training success stories who have been transformed from fearful dogs with behavioural issues affecting their interaction with the world to well adjusted, happy dogs who are a valuable member in their home environment and who can enjoy living in society without stress. She has such a wide range of experience and a deep understanding of the dog’s mind. I strongly recommend her to anybody seeking training guidance for any dog.

These secure spaces have been a lifesaver! A safe oasis of calm and tranquillity. It's so wonderful being able to let my dogs run free without the risk of bumping into other dogs etc (one of mine has dementia so has gone from being one of the most well socialised dogs going to being very stressed when meeting others). It's so much more than just an exercise field though. There's plenty of interesting things for them to do....even an agility course, which has been fantastic at building my youngest rescue dogs confidence up and helping create a bond between us. For me, apart from the joy of seeing my boys happy, there's also plenty of spots to sit quietly and just 'be'.

Have been a regular user of both fields for a number of years and highly recommend. Beautiful environment for your dogs to run free and explore. The Sandpits are a fab addition!

Celines classes are excellent her training methods are amazing and fun, she worked wonders with my Pomsky Thor he's a changed dog now from the nutter he started out as! we passed bronze, silver and gold I'll never forget her words that the Husky and Pomeranian are 2 of the hardest dogs to train, well with her help and excellent guidance we did it! everyone remarks how well behaved Thor is now and it's all down to her training classes I would recommend her to anyone looking for training you will not find a better dog trainer.

Millie and I have loved our bronze and silver classes and are really looking forward to the gold. Fantastic setting for the classes, in the orchard, and a fun atmosphere for us all to learn. I certainly have a happy hound.


What a great place for the doggos! They had a blast! The space is amazing and extremely safe. Doggo’s had a blast in the pond and the sand pit! We shall be back!

Just love these fields, quiet, plenty to explore and so much more than the usual ‘secure dog field’. My dogs are almost hysterical to get out of the car when they realise where they are! So much space to run, snuffle in the longer grass and chase sticks in the ponds. The best bit is that it doesn’t feel like a secure field at all, you could be anywhere in the countryside. We visit as often as possible and it’s always an absolute treat!

As always 5*, can't recommend enough.

My dogs and I love both Vimpneys Orchard and the Big Field, my favourite is the Big Field as I feel the calm when I'm there. Love the way the Big Field now has the long grass and wild flowers, which the dogs love running through, with lots of little paths mown into it and in and around the trees making it easier for you to walk around and enjoy too. In the Orchard the dogs love swimming in the pond in spring and munching on the fallen apples in the autumn. Both awesome places to walk your dogs safely and securely with everything thought out for both the dogs and you to enjoy and relax, well worth the 30 min drive down the motorway!

Have tried a few fields in the area and this is our favourite so far. Lovely huge field with tea and coffee making space and compost toilets. There’s also an orchard but haven’t tried that yet. Will do. It all just has a really nice feel to it. With tree planting to boot and feels like a proper walk with a dog off the lead. So perfect for recall practice.

Rachel Savage

What an amazing space! Absolutely everything has been thought of, anything you may require during your visit is there and Celine could not be more helpful showing me around when I arrived. Cooper 🐶 and I will be regular visitors for sure!
