About Us

Winchester Dog Walking Field, ‘Percy’s Paddock’, is a purpose built secure dog walking and training field available for private individual hire. The field can be hired for either a single dog or small group to exercise or train safely in an enclosed space. The field is approximately 5 acres in size and is surrounded by 6’6 to 7 ‘ fencing. It is located at Down Farm, just north of Winchester in the village of Headbourne Worthy, the estate is a family run business and still a working farm and Percy’s Paddock is one of several enterprises found on Down Farm, managed by Simon and Katie Browne and their son James. 

Percy’s Paddock – designed for dogs

Percy’s Paddock was created through our understanding of the needs of dogs and their owners, our passion for animals and their welfare, as well as our love of the countryside. We have many years of experience with dogs, as well as horses and many other animals. Simon and Katie have always had dogs, and currently share their home with Zulu, a working black Labrador, and Percy, a miniature Daschund. James and his girlfriend Georgia have two dogs, a black lab named Hesky and a black cocker spaniel named Chip. 

Follow Percy online

Percy has his own Instagram account so you can follow him on there @percytheminidaschund. The paddock is named after him, as all our family are Daschund lovers and, like many other naughty daschunds, Percy can often be found being exercised in his paddock because he does love to chase the deer when walking around other parts of the farm!

Having had our own dogs, we recognise the need for some dog owners to have a safe and secure space to take a young puppy to help with basic training, a private space for a reactive dog or somewhere for a dog with a strong hunting drive somewhere it can exercise off the lead without encountering wildlife.
