wonderful dog walks in safe secluded fields with eWoof dog walking

The Walk

If you want to find a dog walker, look no further.  eWoof offers its dog walking service to Flackwell Heath and surrounding areas including Bourne End, Wooburn Green and Daws Hill), with a pick-up and drop-off service included in the price.

We typically walk in fields surrounded by more fields, so this is a great place for your dog to run off lead, away from any traffic. Our small walking groups are based around dogs which have been socialised and which will settle well into the group.  If your area isn’t listed, just drop us a line and we may be able to help or recommend someone closer to you!

Find a dog walker and get the benefits of group walks

There are so many benefits to your dog joining one of our group walks.  While we are an obvious choice for when you can’t be there to take your dog out during the day, regular group walks can help your pup to get more exercise and gain confidence.   (Of course, you could just use us when it rains!)

On group walks, puppies benefit from gaining confidence around older dogs, learning the etiquette of socialising, playing and meeting new dogs.  Older dogs benefit from free running and extended exercise.  

Even if you walk your dog every day it’s great for them to become familiar with another trusted person, in case you ever need cover in an emergency.  It also helps with sociability as they join a small group and feel comfortable in the company of other dogs.

If your own dog walks are really just 10 minute toilet breaks or a walk to do the school run, let us take on the leg work and get your dog moving about more.  Dogs that get out for extended periods are happier, less anxious and it can help to foster better behaviour at home.  

It’s a good idea to find a dog walker like eWoof who offers daycare and boarding too, just in case you ever need these services in the future. 

Find a dog walker

Great question.  

Rob is the main dog walker.  He has been dog walking for just over 5 years so has plenty of experience walking dogs and keeping them safe while in his care.  When the dogs see Rob, they know they’re going out for fun and they learn to respond to him and stay close to the group.

Dogs are walked in areas that we consider to be safe and which are away from traffic and too many members of the general public.  Dogs are kept on lead until we know it’s safe to let them off and we are vigilant about our surroundings before dogs are let off lead.  

Rob is canine first aid and CPR trained, so always prepared in case of an emergency in the field…as it were!

You can book in advance to ensure we have space on specific days and times, or if you only need occasional eWoof back-up, contact us up to the night before to see if we can fit you in. We will always try to accommodate you as best we can.

We walk in small groups, no more then 4 dogs and sometimes less.  We will plan our walks according to the types of dogs being walked on that day and if necessary put in an extra walk if some dogs just can’t be socialised together.

The group has to be comfortable together and enjoy the walk.  We believe in mixing different sizes and breeds as it helps with overall socialisation and allows dogs to learn to be around all types without fear or nervousness.  We ensure the big dogs play safely and that the little dogs are safe, and we sometimes limit the small dogs to lead walks part of the way while the bigger dogs get a longer run out, purely because of their different activity levels.  

Age and health are taken into consideration to ensure walks are safe and enjoyable all round.  We take your guidance on what type of walk your dog needs but we will always share our knowledge and experience to make sure each dog is walked safely.

This is every dog walkers worst nightmare and it can happen to anyone.

It helps if you inform us about the likelihood of your dog running off for whatever reason, especially if they have previous history.  And, we know of course that some breeds naturally have a high prey drive so are also a flight risk.  If this is the case with your dog, we would recommend lead walks unless you give us express consent that they are allowed off lead.

If a dog does run away, we have an emergency protocol whereby we stay local for a period of time to give the dog a chance to return.  At the same time we post to our local dog professional community to rally and keep an eye out.  We will notify you within the hour if your dog has not returned and we will also submit the dog’s details to DogLost which is a nationwide group that advertises lost dogs and promotes the incident via social media.

We ask you to provide a correctly fitting harness for your dog and to make sure it is in good condition so that we can transport your dog safely.  Contact us if your dog cannot wear a harness for any reason as we may be able to plan a walk in a safe location close to you instead which does not require car travel.

We walk in most weather conditions – sun, rain, snow, wind….

We expect to walk your dog if we can safely get to you for collection and we consider it safe to walk your dog.  Under these circumstances, if you then decide you don’t want your dog walked, fees are still payable, unless cancelled the day before.

Where the weather poses a danger to us or your dog, for example significant snowfall or high temperatures there is no charge if the walk doesn’t take place.

In short, no. 

You can book as many or as few walks as you like.  Obviously, if you need set dates or times, book in advance to avoid disappointment.  We aim to be as flexible as we can with bookings and there is no requirement to book regular walks unless you want to.
