Adventure Play &
Sensory Dog Park

Île aux Chiens is an Adventure Play and Sensory Park for all dogs. We have created a secure half hectare field within La Ferme du Moulin des Monts. Our purpose-built play & sensory dog park area offers group play sessions on Saturday mornings and is available to hire for exclusive use throughout the week.


Our dog park (Isle of Dogs) is on an island, surrounded by water. The river Vayres is on one side, with a canal, pond and stream on the other sides in order to service the Moulin. The site was a working Mill since pre-Napoleonic times, with over 2 hectares of pastural land.


This beautiful picturesque valley is situated on the outskirts of Vayres in dept 87 in the Limousin. We are only a 8 minute drive from the medieval town of Rochechouart , and 40 minutes from Limoges.


We have created a secure, safe, stimulating and enriching environment for all dogs to enjoy. We believe in freedom, fun and off lead adventures for dogs and building a strong community of likeminded people who want the absolute best for their dogs.

Here at Île aux Chiens we are passionate about dogs, our day starts & ends with a wet nose kisses and wagging tails. 


Dogs bring bucket loads of joy and sunshine to our lives, they remind us that every day can be a play day, and they are always wanting to please. They teach us about unconditional love, how to be in the present moment and are always happy to see us. It’s pure joy watching your dog live it’s best life and knowing that you play a part in giving that to them.

Meet Alfie

Head of Security & Tour Guide

He is a reason we decided to create this park. He inspires us everyday, he is our ray of sunshine. We have been very fortunate to have him from 10 weeks old and he has been a dream from day one. He is such a loving boy, who adores playing with other dogs. Well that’s an understatement, if Alfie could play play play all day he would. He knows every one of his toys by their name and he is just such an incredibly patient, very funny, loving, goofy little boy. Maybe he loves other dogs so much as he came from a big family, who gave him the very best start in life. He is so generous, kind, well balanced and trusting towards other dogs. He is of course head of security and tour guide at the park, and is very happy to give guided tours of all the play equipment at anytime of the day. He patrols his back garden / play ground every night and ensures it’s safe and secure for all his new dog buddies.


We can all relax knowing it’s in safe paws with Alfie.
