Secure Dog Walking Field Hire

July 2021 Update

The pandemic restrictions are now beginning to ease across the UK, although the threat has not totally left us yet.

We request you still use our hand sanitiser provided as feel it is still currently a precaution worth taking. We are continuing to take safety measures at Gilbert's Gallop to help keep down the rise of the infection rates locally.


The heatwave during July fortnight saw the temperature rise to over 32 degrees, being far too hot for the dogs to travel and enjoy the field, particularly every afternoon when the morning shade and damp grass had faded away.

We replaced many bookings during this period to ensure the dogs didn't suffer heatstroke and the owners didn't lose their booking.

All has returned to normal now with the booking terms and conditions reinstated.


Dog Social Meetings have been great fun for the dogs making many new friends, building their confidence to enjoying a good run around together or even have-a-go on the agility equipment or through the tunnels.

These meetings have also helped many owners understand their dogs better, to know what is good playful interaction and when is the best time to pop them on lead to break the behaviour not welcomed by other dogs. It has been a great learning curve your the young, adolescent dogs who have progressed so well.

Gilbert's Gallop is 2 acres of high secure stock fencing. Each booking has sole private use of all three separate and gated secure areas.

There is plenty of free-running space, new competition standard agility equipment to try out, trampolines to jump on and hay bales to climb, all for your dog to enjoy.

Take the worry out of walking dogs with nervous or poor social skills and the dogs with reactive tendencies. Ideal for practising the 'all important' recall training, exercise the 'escape artist' and take away your fear from walking highly driven, energised dogs.

The gated entrance to our single secure car parking space takes you directly into Gilbert's Gallop field, ideal for getting multiple dogs safely from your vehicle. The main car park offers more space if you choose to book for a multi-household booking (keep dogs on the lead until inside the secure field).

Your bookings will include a wide range of 2021 competition standard agility equipment that is provided for dog use only, we have various professional standard and large breed agility tunnels, trampolines and even giant hay bales for your dogs to climb, all provided as per our T&C's.

One of the three areas is clear of all activity equipment for you to practice your dogs' obedience skills, work on recall or 1-2-1 with your trainer.

Tea, coffee hot drinks facilities and bottled refreshments are available for a small additional cash payment. Water is also provided for your dog and bins for your bagged dog waste (please take home all other waste).

Full of fun, free running exercise and activities.
