Local dog walks you & your dog will love!

My name is Melanie Allen and I have recently opened The Jordans Pet Spa in Jordans Village. My business was inspired by my beautiful cockapoo Harry who came into my life about two and a half years ago. I have lived in the area for nearly eight years, however it has only been since Harry came along that I started exploring the local beauty spots to offer varied walks for both Harry and myself. Harry has met many new friends on these walks, but then so have I. You might already go to a few of my suggested routes, but hopefully I will have come up with a suggestion that you have not been on.

JordansPetSpa2Burnham Beeches

374 hectares of land. A large grass area where dogs can play safely.
Many different walks to choose from. Some off lead and some compulsory on lead.
Acres of woodland for dogs to explore. A cafe with a designated area for dog walkers.
Check the website and local on site maps for guidelines regarding the on and off lead areas.

StokeCommonStoke Common

Located between the villages of Stoke Poges and Fulmer. Divided into 3 areas known as Main Common, West Common and North Common. Stoke Common East is the most popular for walks. (Off Stoke Common Road). There are restrictions for dogs … they must be kept on a lead no more than 2m long between 1st March and 31st July and anytime when livestock are present.

Large grass areas for dogs to play.
A large lake for swimming.
Numerous structured walks, specific on lead area marked around part of lake.
Acres of forest for exploring.
A cafe…again designated area for dog walkers.

ChalfontCommonChalfont Common

Numerous walks off Chesham Lane through fields behind National Epilepsy Centre stretching up and beyond Gorelands Lane, Brawlings Lane and Roberts Lane … Just follow public footpaths .. Acres of open fields where dogs can run free .. Obviously to be put on leads where appropriate.
There is a dog friendly cafe at Rowans Garden Centre where dogs are allowed inside and outside.

Chalfont St Peter to Chalfont St Giles

A walk from the bottom of Chalfont St Peter village running parallel to the A413 and River Misbourne through the fields to the village of Chalfont St Giles. Here you have a choice of a well known coffee house and a lovely deli, before retracing your steps back along the river.

ChalfontGroveNarcot Lane

Lovely walk just before Chalfont Grove on Narcot Lane. There is a lay-by where you can enter the woods. At the end of the woods there is an opening into a big field where dogs can run safely and freely … Leads into another big field… More woods for exploring and various paths off fields.

There are also the shorter walks available around Gold Hill Common and Gerrard’s Cross Common where there is obviously more traffic around so freedom is a bit more limited.

If you have a problem getting out to walk your dog, Jane from Walkies Today offers an hours good dog walk for £10.
