PUPPIES had a field day as a new Stevenston space where dogs can run off the leash officially opened.

North Ayrshire Council recently approved plans for resident Juanita Brown to allow her 0.8 hectare field to be used by owners to let their canine companions run free.

Juanita’s new dog park, Harley’s Angels, officially opened with a puppy session recently.

She said: “We’ve got three dogs ourselves that were very reactive to other dogs when we would take them out.

“We’ve had a lot of comments from other dog owners how it’s about time there was something like this, the feedback’s all been very positive.”
