Doggy Day care in South Stoke, Berkshire

Meet Billie who is a real asset to WalKeys team and nothing is too much trouble for her. She has had many pets throughout her life and is trained to enable her to control the dogs she has in her care to an extremely high standard.

Billie's qualities are second to none and her calm personality and patience shines through.

Billie spends a lot of her time in the office and is an excellent adminstrator. She is always on hand to quickly drive out to any walker who may have a problem, she helps out with our day care dogs, especially young puppies who keep her entertained during her office hours.

She covers walkers during holidays and highdays and the dogs adore her.  

Dogs immediately take to Billie and trust her to care for them as do their owners.

Best of friends but wait, whats that? Shall we or shant we?

A few words from Billie


My family have always had dogs which is why I feel comfortable when I am with them. Our first family dog was a beautiful Irish Setter called Fred. He travelled the world with us until he became too old to do so. He was then looked after by a lovely family locally and we found out that he would regularly wander down to The Bull, Streatley for half a pint and then go back home!


After Fred we had a Boxer named Bella and a Heinz 57 called Tigre in Argentina. Unfortunately we weren't able to bring them with us when we left so they were found good homes too. The next lot of dogs were then all Alsatians called Marmite, Dumpy and Paso. Marmite was owned by the police in Nigeria and while we were looking after her she had six puppies, 3 of whom were white when they were first born - just like little polar bears!


I am now happily settled in Goring with 2 daughters, 2 dogs (Purdy & Brie), 2 cats (Rogue & Dizzy), 3 guinea pigs (Chichi, Squiggle & Bobble) and 2 tortoises (Malibu & Rum). I love living here and feel so lucky to be able to work in partnership for Walkeys. Could there be a better job than exercising with dogs? I never cease to be amazed by the different characters in each dog!

Ipsden and Hailey

 

This attractive short walk takes you through peaceful, rolling Oxfordshire countryside with tiny hamlets, open farmland and quiet valleys. Start at The King William pub in Hailey, parking on the road side near the pub.  Part of the walk is along bridleways and 'Quiet Lanes'. Facing the King William pub, turn right along the road which soon becomes an unsurfaced track, past a house and farm, continue to the top of the track where you can walk along the edge of the side of the field on the left or continue through the woods. The panoramic views from here are truly magnificent and you can even see Didcot Power Station and Wittenham Clumps in the distance.

Warren Farm Streatley


From Streatley, make your way to Streatley golf club situated along Rectory Road. At the end of this lane there is a car park and Warren Farm, where you will find many sheep and cows in the fields to the left. Here you have a steady climb up to the Ridgway with trees each side and many blackberry bushes in the Autumn months. From here the 187 metres elevation brings you to the Ridgway and the wild and open uplands where you will find yourself in the midst of exquisite beauty.

                 Moor Copse Wood

Just past the picturest village of Tidmarsh, you will find five Acres of wild flower fields, woods and the clear waters of the River Pang  The fields are allowed to grow all summer and autumn, and then mown or cropped by ponies in the winter, which improves the botanical interest as the grass becomes starved, allowing more wild flowers to grow, such as Primrose, Early Purple Orchid, Bugle, Wood Anemone and Violets. Tall trees cast shadows on the woodland floor and in spring you can hear the calls and drumming of Lesser and Great Spotted Woodpecker. The dense, scrub-like nature of young coppice regrowth attracts birds such as Blackcap, Garden warbler, and Chiffchaff.

                  Nuney Green Woods


There are numerous paths here but I always turn left and then left again onto the hamlet’s. The only approach is by road until we pass the cottages on our left and then turn right into the woodland and hopefully, see the beech trees in their autumn glory.
This path is well signed by blazemarks on the trees but do take care. I have on one occasion reached Nuney Green, wandered through the woods and finished up back at Nuney Green! If we follow the correct route we should finish up emerging from Gutteridge’s Wood to reach the Goring Heath road again. Cross straight over with care to and over a stile and through the two fields opposite.
