The Big Field is a project and over the next few years I will be planting 3 acres as orchard, 3 acres as native woodland and hoping to dig an acre out as a large natural pond...I am also hoping in the next few years to plough an acre to grow veg....Each time you use the field the money will go towards planting new trees and providing shelter, nesting and a food source for wildlife!
10/4/22 SAND PIT ADDED! And pond dug deeper with a sloping edge for dogs to enter water gradually so building confidence.
4 rehomed xmas trees planted today and another apple tree!
With the help of friends another 31 trees were planted mainly in the woodland area. Through the year more have been planted as well, and this brings the total amount of trees planted to over 200!
We also dug a small natural pond today!
Another 21 (3 more than expected!) trees planted in the big field today....133 trees now!
My circle of horn beams is going to be so beautiful and create shade on the feasting table! And my double circle is also going to be amazing! I have created a young Arboretum!!!
The new trees are big!
Dug a row of tractor tyres in as well to make a new obstacle for the dogs.
Today we planted another 30 fruit trees! 20 cherries, 2 mulberries, 2 almonds, 4 plums, 2 medlar...This puts a total of 60 fruit trees in the orchard area! We also planted 2 holly trees in the woodland area! And another 20 trees coming in January!
another 6 large trees planted in the field! These are between 12 and 25 foot! Sweet chestnut, hornbeam, whitebeam, eucalyptus, weeping cherry and silver birch!
As well as another 4 oaks planted earlier in the year, taking the total to 70 trees planted in a year and a half!

This is so much more than I hoped to achieve in my first year!
I had 2 lovely ladies donate money for trees, which is so amazing of them!
My lush friends helped me and we made quick work of planting them with the help of a mini digger!
The dogs all had a lovely day too, playing in the field, mine didn't move all evening!
And another rainbow! Each time we plant we have a rainbow, I believe this is a good omen!!!
Now I have all summer to save for more trees next year!!!
Feeling very happy!
Big thanks to all my customers for making this possible, and to my friends for their help and support

Our first (and certainly not last) visit to the Orchard today. Such a wonderfully peaceful place for Bella to explore and chase her ball. Thank you Celine x Gayle
My daughter and I visited Celine’s secure dog walking field at Arlingham this afternoon and booked immediately for a return visit. The field is totally safe and secure, and our five dogs were able to run around freely. They had a wonderful time. I would highly recommend Celine’s secure field to anyone who is looking for somewhere safe to run their dogs. Linda
Celine's field and orchard are great places to exercise your dogs and practice your recall and other training. Very quiet peaceful places to spend time with your dogs. Celine's training classes are always fun and you will learn alot! Highly recommended! Wendy
Celine's training skills are superb and her dog training classes are fantastic ..for both the dogs and their humans :-) My rescue greyhound has been diagnosed on the autistic spectrum, plus had a bad start in life at the greyhound race track. She has major fear issues of 'humans' outside the boundaries of the home. Now she literally cannot wait to get in the car each week on training day - she is so excited and such a major transformation since just attending Bronze class. The classes and the Rockhampton village hall environment really suit her. Also at Celine's Orchard was the first time we had seen her forget her outside fears and have fantastic off lead super zoomies with other greyhounds. I'm really excited about her progress and future and it is all thanks to Celine's help. Gill
Without Celine's training I'm not sure we would've been able to keep our first dog Lexi, a two year old Romanian rescue. Celine's training gave us confidence to understand better how to behave around Lexi and how she needed to be treated to gain our trust.
We completed Bronze, Silver & Gold with a lovely group in Rockhampton Village Hall and then I continued on and did Gold in Celine's orchard to give Lexi every opportunity at mixing and being in different surroundings...I hope to be able to attend the delinquent dogs club as and when work commitments allow!
I also highly recommend hiring out either the orchard or the large field if, like us, you weren't confident to let your dog off lead to roam free, it was such a lovely experience to see Lexi running around & again, allowed us to build our confidence in trusting her off lead!
The classes are so much fun and everybody laughs with each other - no one is made to feel their dogs aren't keeping up, everyone and their dog is treated as individual and encouraged by not only Celine but all class members as well, such is the good morale led by Celine within the group!
Thank you Celine, I won't hesitate to recommend you & already have done so! Naomi
19/7/18 Awesome! Beth
I have been using the orchard at Arlingham for quite a while now to exercise my rescue dogs, one fear aggressive and the rest not much recall at present. Having this wonderful orchard to walk in is a real blessing, I can relax and the hounds can run about to their hearts content. It is a really peaceful stunning location and I can highly recommend it to everyone. Frances
The fields are awesome, so much space and very peaceful. Celine you are a very special lady, thank you for sharing your dream with us. X Helen
I've used both secure fields now and love taking my GSD weekly. It's great be able to let him off and he can stretch his legs, chase his ball and explore the surroundings safely a d without any distractions. Plus it's a great space for great some training in. Highly recommended
I have been using the Orchard for just over a year and have now been to the new secure field. Both are amazing and you can exercise your dogs in a very relaxed and peaceful environment - no worries about large dogs running up to other people or them escaping to other fields or onto roads. Can’t recommend this enough. Pamela
I used the Happy Hounds Field for my Labrador’s litters first Birthday party. Lovely quiet location, huge field for all the dogs to run around, lots of places for us humans to sit. It was great to know all the dogs were safe mooching around while we all chatted. Just lovely � thanks Celine
I attended my puppies first birthday party at the field. Was lovely to see them all bounding through the wild flowers/grasses. No mess anywhere great picnic table right in the middle for everyone to congregate round. Hours of fun in a lovely picturesque and safe setting. Highly recommend
We visited the secure field this afternoon. What an amazing place. Beautiful scenery and so peaceful. Celine was great and has big plans for the field which we can't wait to see. Would definitely recommend a visit especially if you have a reactive or anxious dog that cant come off lead. Can't wait to go back
Chakotay and Nala had an amazing time in Celine's field, definitely go again, Christine and Warren
Fantastic place to visit and a very warm welcome and professionally run. Bird song was amazing, fab facilities and totally secure. Will return for sure. Sue
Celine's new secure field is an absolute MUST to visit! Pups had a fab time and it is so peaceful � stunning views too! Heaven! Can't wait to go back! Thanks Celine �� Bec
Celine is fantastic, we brought Aldo in September never expecting to reach Bronze but through her knowledge, patience and humour he has achieved Gold. The classes are small & fun, we will miss our Wednesday evenings. The Orchard secure field is great if you have a dog with recall problems, Aldo loves the freedom here but we look forward to using the new secure field which will Aldo the freedom he needs and peace of mind for us. Would recommend Celine for training and her secure fields to anyone looking to help their dog develop.
The field is near to Stonehouse, within easy travel from Stroud, Quedgeley, Whitminster, Cam, Wotton, Dursley, Gloucester and all surrounding areas.
