The Important Stuff
By booking Percy’s Paddock, you agree to the terms and conditions.
Use of the field is entirely at your own risk. Percy’s Paddock, owners, agents and servants accept no liability for the death of or any injury of any person or dog, or for damage to any property. Meyrick Estates also accepts no liability for any losses, claims, actions, damages, costs, expenses or other liability incurred whilst on site. Your and your dogs’ behaviour and actions are your sole responsibility and no claim can be made against Percy’s Paddock – Winchester Dog walking fields, owners, agents and servants.
You are liable for any damage caused inside and outside the field by you, your dog(s) or any person in your party. All dogs must be covered under their own third party insurance (public liability insurance). This is usually included in your pet insurance.
We are located in a rural setting amongst working farmland. There may be stones, branches, small holes. Therefore Percy’s paddock – Winchester Secure Dog Walking Field may not be suitable for all dogs due to the proximity of livestock (guinea fowl), sounds of neighbouring farm dogs, gunshots and bird scarers.
Being close to the Golf Driving range we are constantly checking for golf balls and any other objects which might be tempting for a dog to pick up. If your dog has a tendency to pick up objects then please be aware there might be the occasional golf ball on the ground.
Please assess the suitability for your own dog or contact us for more information.
Arriving and leaving
You and your dogs must remain in your vehicle until it is your turn to use the field. Allowing dogs out of cars when the previous user is in the field could have consequences for nervous and/or reactive dogs.
