Scotland's original, dedicated secure off-lead exercise facility

Opened in early September 2016. Dodside Dog Runs offers secure, off the lead, exercise areas for dogs that need the freedom to run in a large area without the worry of getting lost. Your booking gives you exclusive use of the Run so if your dog has poor/no recall, is nervous of, or aggressive towards, others you can all have a relaxed time, on your own or with friends.



Easy to find, easy to book, easy to use

  • We're on the B769 Stewarton Road 3 miles south of Whitecraigs Rugby Club (Newton Mearns)
  • Book as few or as many slots as you like and pay all at the one time
    • Book up to 2 months, or as little as 20 minutes, ahead, reschedule without charge as little as 21/2 hours before the start
    • Check the T&Cs for the refund/cancellation policy - we're easy ;-)
    • Each slot is £6.00 per half hour (£10 for the Big Field)
    • Bulk booking offers and other special offers are often available as well
  • Pay by Paypal, debit or cards, or cash (by special arrangement)
  • Turn up, park, walk out and in no time you'll all be having a stress free time
    • No roads, motorways or houses to disturb the peace

Both Libby's Run and Harry's Run (Libby was my cocker spaniel who gracefully allowed the runs in her back garden, Harry was her predecessor) are approximately 3 acres of grassland surrounded by 6' high 'deer' fencing which has a netting 'skirt' dug into the ground so your dog cannot easily get out even if they are a digger. There is a shelter for you to keep out the worst of the weather, fresh water, bins for poo bags and fantastic views (with picnic tables), peace and quiet as well as ample parking!


The 'Big Field' is around 8.5 acres of much wilder ground, with trees, bogs, large grassed areas, and lots of smells. With parking for 4 cars inside the Field, you have complete security for your dog.


Set in the countryside about 4 miles south of Newton Mearns, Glasgow, the Runs are on agricultural land forming part of my Smallholding so be prepared not only for lovely views over Brother Loch but for a wee bit of hiking over sometimes wet or muddy ground to get there. Your dogs will love the walk out and back, you will love seeing them run free well away from the stresses of a public park. 


We look forward to bumping into you sometime
