Autumn Heli Hounds Dog Walk
Pre-registration is now CLOSED,
but you can still pay on the day! Registration opens at 9am on Sunday, and tickets cost £7.50 per dog (cash payment only please).
Walk those paws for a life-saving cause
Bring your pooch for a perfect three mile autumn dog walk alongside hundreds of other four-legged friends like our poster dog Tikaani this October. Starting at our new offices at Church End, Little Hadham we have mapped out a stunning off-road route for you and your pooches to join us on.
This year’s Heli Hounds event promises to be bigger and better than ever – as well as the dog walk, there will be shows, a pop-up photo booth for dogs, games and agility tests for you and your pooches to take part in, stalls to browse and much more! Scroll down the page to find out more!
We are also excited to welcome on the dog walk TV dog behaviourist Dima Yeremenko, who has worked with the likes of Paul O’Grady and Noel Fitzpatrick. Dima will also be doing demonstrations and giving out training tips which you definitely won’t want to miss out on!
Register your dog for the event now to be one of the first 200 dogs to receive a FREE doggy bandana!
Dog Show Classes
As well as the dog walk, there will be judged classes for your dog to enter – some pedigree and some novelty. Enter your pooch into our dog classes to win an exclusive Heli Hounds Rosette, with prizes going to dogs placed from 1st to 5th position. Take a look at the classes below to see which one (or more) your dog could have a great chance of winning:

- Best Puppy – 6–18 months
- Best Veteran – 7+
- Pretty Bitch

Best in Show will be awarded to the dog that the judges would most like to take home (however we promise they won’t!).
Special offer! If you would like to enter your dog into two separate classes as well as the dog walk, please contact our Events Team who will be able to help you buy this special discounted ticket for just £7.00. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Pop-up Photo Booth for Dogs!
Take advantage of this unique opportunity to get stunning pictures of your four-legged friend at our Pop-up Photo Booth! Bring your dog along to have some fun in the booth, and cherish special memories of the day to keep forever. Detheo Photography will be running the photo booth and donating a percentage from each shoot to the Essex & Herts Air Ambulance, so please show your support.
Games and Agility Tests
Agility tests are a great way for your dog to have fun and will challenge your dog’s mind and body, as well as keep the dog fit, healthy, and improve its coordination. It’s also great fun for spectators, so even if your dog isn’t up to the challenge, make sure that you join us to watch this exciting competition!
Get your dog jumping through hoops by taking part in Hooper’s Games! Hoopers is based on agility but instead of jumping over obstacles the dog jumps through specially designed hoops! This is great exercise for older dogs or dogs that are recovering from injury. Plus it’s great for elderly dog owners as there isn’t too much moving about involved. Agility Tests and Hoopers Games will be run by Red Dog Training School.
Let your dog ‘have-a-go’ in our Scurry competition – any dog can enter and the aim of the game is to get your dog to jump over hay bales to get to you in the fastest time possible. So if your dog is quick on its feet, you could be in for a win and your dog in for a treat!
We know that money doesn’t mean very much to dogs, but it means a lot to humans and even more to our life-saving helicopters. Just £59 can purchase traction splints, used for re-aligning broken long bones after falls which, as you dog walkers know, can occur more often in the autumn and winter. Help save a life and get sponsored for your Heli Hound walk by setting up a Just Giving Page or download one of our sponsorship forms.
