Dog walking

Nothing seems to get a dog's attention in quite the same way as when you tell them it's time for a walk. So the disappointment can be palpable when you can't take them out. I can solve your time problems by offering walks on a regular, occasional or one-off basis.

Regular walks are vital to the well-being of your dog. The stimulation gained from exercise and social interaction leads to a healthier, happier and more peaceful pet.

Each walk lasts for at least 45 minutes, with collection and return to your property bringing the total up to about an hour. In damp weather, all paws are cleaned on returning home and I check that your dog has fresh water and everything is secure.

I regularly shake up the routine to help avoid boredom and use many of the great parks and woods around our area. A quick look at a map reveals that I have visited more than 35 different locations in the last year - most of which contain many different walks.

Call me to arrange an initial meeting and your dog could be enjoying the fresh air and company tomorrow.

Pack walk

Bringing highly socialised and friendly dogs together, in a maximum pack size of four, enables them to get the exercise and play they need.

This walk is suitable for almost everyone - some of the best play mates are seen in the oddest pairings.

Solo walk

Some dogs don't want to (or can't) be walked in a group.

I can also walk your dog on a one-to-one basis, but this would probably not be during peak times of the day.

2x Puppy walks

Puppies upto 6 months old need shorter, more frequent walks. By walking twice for about 25 minutes your puppy builds muscle without risking damage to growing bones.

I can also arrange some walks with the older dogs to help with their social skills at an early age.
