Dog Walking Field

Naughty Paws Play Paddock is close to Stevenage and available for exclusive hire!

Dog Walking Field

A full Acre of Dog exercise field, fully fenced for you and your dogs.

Fully Fenced Dog Walking Field

We know it can be an anxious time letting your puppy off lead or exercising a dog that doesn’t like to recall. At Naughty Paws we have a fully enclosed Dog walking field available for exclusive hire. Our ‘Dog Exercise Park’ is situated on private land just on the outskirts of Stevenage at Aston. Covering an Acre of land, similar to an adult football pitch, this large paddock sized area is perfect for exercising your dog whilst minimising the chance of them running off.

You’ll be able to see your dog throughout the entire space while they have ample room to run around. The Naughty Paws Play Paddock is great for doggy play and to burn off that excess doggy energy.

Only one booking is in the field at any time so you will not be sharing with other people/dogs unless they are part of your booking.

There is free parking on site for a max of 2 vehicles as part of every booking.

Dog equipment in the Naughty Paws Paddock

There is a 2.4m sandpit, use of agility tunnel, an agility A-Frame, Hay Stacks and raised Dog Walks. We also try and keep weave poles, balls and other equipment available to keep your dog enticed during their time at the field*. If you bring your children please ensure they do not play with or climb the equipment. It is designed for dogs and may not be child safe. (*Equipment may vary or be rotated for maintenance).

Is the Dog field Fenced?

Our field’s perimeter is fully fenced to a height of 4ft. From the road we have a double gated entrance. This means you can pull you car off the road and close gate 1 before letting your dog out of the car. Once inside the main field, close the second gate and you can relax knowing your dog is unlikely to escape.

Suitable for both large and small breeds. We’ve tested the fence with our resident Irish Wolfhound and Pomeranian to ensure it’s secure.

*We’ve made our best efforts to ensure our field is fully fenced. Please bear in mind that if you dog is a jumper, or experienced escape artist, they could clear any height or find a exit- even in a brick wall! We cannot guarantee the field is completely escape proof so please make sure you are happy with the space before letting your 4 legged friend run free.

Dog Walking Field Hire

Our beautiful dog walking field is available to hire, by private individuals, to exercise their dogs in a secure and tranquil environment. Each booking costs from £10 and is for 50 minutes. This covers up to 3 dogs arriving in no more than 2 vehicles with timeslots starting on the hour. 50 mins allows a safe change over time between bookers. Qualified dog trainers, or their clients, can also hire the field for one 2 one sessions but we’d ask them to make us aware this is why they are booking. They must be fully insured to cover these activities and abide by our usual rules. Dogs being trained must all be from the same household/owner. We have planning rules to comply with and would ask you to help by respecting these rules.

What if I have extra dogs?

Up to 3 dogs arriving in no more than 2 vehicles are included for the £10 fee. Above this, it’s £1 extra for each additional dog. You simply choose the booking button for the total number of dogs below. To comply with our planning rules you must arrive in no more than two vehicles and not park additional vehicles in the local roads.  We reserve the right to cancel your (or future) bookings without notice if you do not comply with these rules. They are in place to ensure we comply with our planning agreement with the local council and to ensure we do not impact negatively on the local roads &/or parking. This area has been set up for the exercise of your dogs not as an area for multiple ‘human’ households to meet.

With more dogs comes more mess so please keep your eyes peeled and clean up after your four legged friends 🙂

Rescheduling or cancelling:

We try and be as flexible as possible but late reschedules cause a much bigger issue for a small business like ours than you may realise so please read our T&C’s and make sure you are happy before booking.

A few headlines on our reschedule & cancellation rules in short:

Cancellation: We do not offer any refund for cancellations so please only use this option if you are unable to make your session and have already passed the 24hr prior rescheduling time.  This is due to the administrative time and card charges involved in processing refunds and falls in line with many other dog fields. This includes ‘on the day bookings’ &/or those who change their mind after booking.

Rescheduling must be done no later than 24hrs prior to booked time. Any later and you’ll lose the booking fee and have the session cancelled without exception.

You can reschedule any booking up to 3 times after which it will be regarded as a cancellation without refund.
