Here at Haytor Mutt Mayhem we have made an area purpose built of approx 1.55 acres secured with 6ft 6" high deer fence with additional small mesh added to the bottom 2ft (to stop little dogs escaping!) to enable you to exercise your dog and let it go crazy whilst you can sit and enjoy the fabulous views either down the valley or up to Haytor. There is an enclosed unloading area for up to 2 cars which you enter and close the gate behind you before letting you dog out into the safety of the main paddock, where there are plenty of things to help keep them occupied or just run! There is a plenty of space to throw a ball, go through the tyres and have a swim in our large water trough. There is a field shelter with a picnic table in/beside should you need to shelter from the elements, plus other seats around the paddock to sit an admire the views. Inside the shelter are spare poo bags, treats and toys for the dogs to use.
So if your dog is a rescue, struggling with recall, has a high prey drive (desire to chase other things) or in season then the paddock will give you a place to do this safely. Or if your looking for some where peaceful to sit and enjoy time with your dog our paddock will be perfect!
We are only a stones throw from Haytor on Green Lane, which is only a short drive from the A38. There are some amazing facilities locally for eating and drinking, we have The Carpenters Arms in Ilsington just 2 mins across the valley, Ullacombe Farm shop only 5 mins over the hill on route back to Bovey Tracey. Both allow dogs on site so perfect for after your exercise to enjoy a bite to eat and drink. SAT NAV will not bring to us, use goggle maps for the most accurate directions or What3words.
We are open to talking to local dog walkers, puppy training groups and other groups about the hire of our paddock as we do have ample parking outside the secure area. We do ask tho that there is no more than 3 dogs per person in the paddock at one time to ensure the poo is all cleared up.
Please note horses do graze around the outside of the field, but aren't bothered by dogs at all. If this is an issue please message before booking to see if we can work something out as the horses do occasionally come indoors.
The unloading area MUST be closed before you get your dog(s) out of the vehicle, after your session the gate can be left open and secured to the post so the next user can drive up the track and reverse in to save getting in and out numerous times! The pedestrian gate in to the paddock is on a spring so be careful when entering the paddock that it doesn't catch you or your dog. Once inside the gate has an internal latch for you to secure yourself and dog(s) in.
