About This Field
Florey’s Field is a 3 acre grass paddock located 8 miles south-east of Witney and 8 miles north-west of Abingdon in Oxfordshire.
It’s in a lovely rural location and was extremely quiet during our visit.
Booking and Accessing Florey’s Dog Walking Field
Florey’s Field has a very straight forward booking system with sessions of 1 hour. Additional dogs are charged extra up to 6. If you have more dogs than this you are requested to make contact with the owner.
What is Florey’s Field Like?
Florey’s field is in a really nice spot and has lots going on to keep you occupied for an hour. The parking is super easy with lots of space which is always welcome – particularly in winter (February visit).
The field itself has natural enrichment and obstacles scattered around – logs, tyres, jumps and a nice sandpit.
There’s a large field shelter which gives almost a full view of the field with seating, treats, in information board, first aid kits and a sealable toy bin.
Despite how wet it had been, this field was fairing up pretty well at the time of our visit with a few sploshy patches but those are always welcome by our rabble!
Is Florey’s Field Secure?
This is an anomaly – the fencing at this field stands at 5’9″ (see images) and theoretically, that would place it in the ‘enclosed’ category. however, we have featured it in both the enclosed and secure categories because for almost every dog, this field would be perfectly secure. The fence is very well installed and maintained – the netting is a tight mesh and it is dug into the ground. This is where we believe a few inches have been lost.
The only reason you might not consider this field is if you have a particularly athletic dog or a dog that specifically requires the security of 6ft+ fencing.
The gate was flush with the ground future our visit and the fence lines were clear and visible.
Notes for Reactive Dog Owners:
- Cars may pass as there is an operational track
- The field is part of a larger field so there may be seasonal agricultural activity nearby at certain times
- You are encouraged to have 50 minutes of exercise and 10 minutes to loading and exit however, there is no clear time as a formal buffer. If you have a reactive dog you may wish to arrive a little late and depart early if this is a concern to you.
