Dog walking - Essential for good physical and mental health

I offer dog walking individually (solo), or dogs from the same home; not large mixed groups.

If your dog is friendly then I will always encourage socialisation and interaction with other dogs whilst we are out walking, and it won't be overwhelming or unruly; which I often find large groups are. Ultimately interactions are how you know your dog to be comfortable with.

Walks can be on-lead, off-lead* or a mixture of both. Ideally, I'd like the dog(s) to have some of the time to run freely, as this really allows them to stretch their legs and tire out, but I understand that is not always possible with every dog. Again, it is whatever is best for your dog.

I have experience in walking both aggressive (dog to dog aggression & dog to people aggression) and timid dogs. Oh, and lots of nice ones too!

Typically, I walk from your home, around a route lasting the desired time, and then back to your home. This does not require your dogs to travel in a vehicle, meaning they are outside walking the entire time. We take in their familiar local area, and often meet furry friends en-route.

Where possible I like to make my rounds on my bike as this is more environmentally friendly and reduces congestion in our town. If I do have to use my vehicle, it is a plain car and it is not sign-written and has no advertising on it. Many of my clients are delighted to have such a discreet service, as this is both security and privacy for their home and their family.

You'll have peace of mind knowing that everything is in safe hands with me visiting your home and tending to your dog(s), as I'm honest and trustworthy, and have many happy clients who have been happy to testify so.

I will always come and visit you and your dog at home, before agreeing to do any work for you. This allows us to discuss your requirements and ensure we are all happy before preceding any further.

 

Please contact me to discuss your requirements.

 

*Off-lead requires the express consent of owners, and when I'm confident in the dogs' nature.
