Guided Waggy Walk at Eling


Join us for a guided, group dog walk around beautiful Eling in Southampton. Take in the sights and sounds of nature while your dog explores alongside you and makes some new doggy friends.

We’ll walk at a gentle pace through woodland paths and open fields, allowing our dogs plenty of opportunities to engage with their environment along the way.

The walk should take around one hour, however, it may be slightly longer or shorter depending on the pace of the group and how often we stop.

This walk is free to attend, but places are limited so please be sure to book.

Event details

Meeting place and parking: We will meet at Eling Car Park (at the bottom of Eling Hill) SO40 9HF. Parking is free.

Dogs per person: The maximum number of dogs per person is two, but we recommend one dog per person where possible.

Leads: Dogs must stay on lead for the duration of the walk.

What to bring: You will need a lead, collar and/or harness for your dog, as well as poo bags and treats. Please dress appropriately for the weather and bring sturdy footwear.

Nervous dogs: We want everyone to be comfortable on our walk, so if you have a nervous dog that needs a little more space, please feel free to join in from further away so that there is some distance between yourself and the main group. Before touching/feeding/approaching an unknown dog, please check with the owner that this is okay.

Accessibility: There is some uneven ground on this walk – we will cover gentle slopes and mixed terrain, including boardwalk, pavement, grass, woodland and gravel.

Book your place: To book your place, please email Alice Ashcroft-Dalley at alice.ashcroft-dalley@hants.gov.uk with the number of people and dogs you would like to attend, and a phone number that we can contact you on if need be.

Our outdoor walks and activities are weather dependant. We aim to let you know by email in good time if a walk is cancelled due to bad weather, but please check your emails before leaving home.
