Glasgow's dog owners will soon have even more options to create tail-wagging fun for their pups with a new secure adventure field set to open and another being given an expansion.

Top Scottish dog park specialists Unleash The Dogs are opening a brand new site in Bishopbriggs in a follow up to their flagship spot in Hillington, which we reviewed when it first opened last year.

As part of the plans, the original Hillington site is set to be given an upgrade with the new field almost two acres in size and featuring incredible views out over the city of Glasgow.

The new site in Bishopbriggs is set alongside the Forth & Clyde canal and is just a few minutes drive from Bishopbriggs, Kirkintilloch and Bearsden.

Opening on Saturday, May 25, the new site will be the sixth field opened by Unleash the Dogs, with adventure parks now covering the entire city.

The new facility in Bishopbriggs joins their award-winning locations at Uddingston, Carmunnock and Hillington which the firm say entertain hundreds of dogs each month.

Coming from a farming background, Craig and his partner Lauren are on a mission to create the very best places for dogs to visit in Glasgow.

Boasting equipment and obstacles for all dogs, the enclosed fields feature doggy friendly sensory gardens, as well as shelters for owners to socialise and escape the Scottish elements.

Speaking about the new opening, Craig said: “It’s a huge milestone for us to be able to open the Bishopbriggs site.

"Unleash The Dogs now has accessible locations covering the north, south, east and west of the city, meaning Glasgow residents can access any park by car in less than 15 minutes.

"We have kept the bar incredibly high with the design and build of our latest fields. Our team are constantly challenging themselves to improve our offering in every aspect. We have learned so much from our existing sites and we believe that these new fields are at the very top of their game.

“We hope these new additions will be just as popular as the other sites across the city and we are incredibly excited to continue this journey of growth.”

Owners and professional dog-walkers can book their slot for up to eight dogs online, guaranteeing complete private access to the site.
