Update – January 2018 | Luosko have re-located to bigger premises & the good news is that they still have a freedom field!
New Address: Luosko Dog Care, Meaford Road, ST15 8UK, Stoke-on-Trent.
The Luosko Freedom Field is an enclosed area that can be booked by the hour and used to exercise or train your dogs in a secure environment. We thought it would be the perfect place to let Elsa run around, play and socialise with her muttley crew and ended up enjoying the experience just as much as the dogs did!
Luosko Dog Care & Rescue is a family run business that offers a range of services including home boarding, doggie day care, walking, training and microchipping. The Freedom Field is a relatively new service that is already attracting a lot of interest from individuals and groups who want to be able to allow their dogs the freedom to roam around an outdoor area without worrying about factors such as traffic, other animals and even other people! It’s also a great place to train your dog.
Although we regularly meet up with Elsa’s furry friends, they rarely have the opportunity to run and play without getting tangled up in their leads, so when we heard about the Luosko Freedom Field we jumped at the opportunity to arrange a proper play date.

Booking was quick and easy through the form on the Luosko website. Proceeds from these bookings, along with sales from their online shop, go towards their rescue fund to pay for food, bedding, toys and vet bills.
When we arrived the Manager, Adam, gave us a very warm welcome and explained where we could find all the amenities including fresh water for the dogs, then we were left to enjoy our one hour slot uninterrupted.
The dogs were very happy to see each other and spent a lot of time running around together, playing and having a very good sniff of every inch of the field.

As an added bonus, The Field also has some agility equipment set up and most of the dogs had a go at it…
… with so many dogs to run around and play with their attention span didn’t last long though!
Some of the dogs preferred to put their other senses to use and were happy just having a good sniff around!
|Ronnie and Rosie|
Ronnie the Labrador made lots of new friends and seemed to have a little posse following him around…
Piglet kept a watchful eye on the pack and joined in with the fun at every opportunity!
Just when we thought that they had had enough, someone started a new game…
Harry and Elsa had great fun ‘wrestling’, although she sometimes forgets that she is a lady…
The Field is a good size and can accommodate up to 15 dogs as a Group Booking. We’d highly recommend it if you are looking for somewhere to spend time playing with, exercising or training your dogs in a secure area. The team at Luosko are always available for anything you might need and are more than happy to offer help or advice; you can really tell that they have a passion for dog care and well being. The business is also fully insured and licensed.
After a final run around The Field, it was time to wrap things up. We were really lucky with the weather, it was sunny but cool – perfect for the dogs.
Elsa loves other dogs and we have always gone to great lengths to make sure that she gets every opportunity to socialise; this service at Luosko gives us another outlet to do just that.
It’s safe to say that we’ll be back here again!
Doggie Daycare is another service that we’d highly recommend, particularly for younger dogs and dogs that like to spend time in similar company… the socialisation aspects can do wonders for them.
Luosko are also very dedicated to rescuing dogs in need and they can offer assistance and advice if you are looking to adopt, foster or re-home a dog.
As we got the dogs ready to go home we were given an information leaflet and each dog received a bag of training treats courtesy of Luosko! This was a lovely surprise…and they are really good, wholesome treats from one of our favourite brands too – Fish4Dogs!
We would like to say a huge thank you to the team at Luosko, and to all of our friends and the lovely dogs for joining us – can’t wait until we do it again!
