Dog walking - Home visits - Pet sitting - Pet taxi - Feeding/Toilet breaks - Pet care
Upon booking an appointment, I will meet you and your pup at your home, during this meeting we will discuss his/her needs, so I can tailor the walk to suit. It wouldn't be fair to take your Pug on a group walk with a Vizsla or your elderly dog with a group of puppies. So in the first instance, we need to determine the walk he/she requires.
During our meeting, we will discuss your dogs behaviour, commands they know, length of walk etc. The more I can learn about your pup, the more enjoyable their walk will be.
The first walk will always be solo, this is so he and I can spend some time getting used to each other without too many distractions. On this walk I can practise his commands that we will have discussed in our meet and greet, and it gives him some time to build some trust in me. If your dog is good on recall, I will take on a lead walk the first few times, until such time I feel your dog is comfortable and confident with me.
A usual walk is an hour, but I understand not all dogs require this length of time (some may require more), so we will tailor the walk to suit your dogs need and of course your budget.
If you have a puppy and want to work on their recall, I also offer a walk including recall training, which will be a one to one walk.
I offer daily, weekly, bi-weekly, monthly or just occasional walks. How ever often you require him walked, I have you covered. Life sometimes gets extremely busy, so if you suddenly find your schedule fully booked, give me a call and I will happily book you in.
Home visits for your dog can be arranged. For example, they are recovering from an operation, or they do not walk in the rain, snow or it is just too hot for your dog. This will entail play, toilet break, affection and possibly a short walk around the block.
If you have an important meeting, and your dog requires an urgent or pre-arranged vet visit or you have the in-laws coming round and he is in dire need of a scrub and a trim, I can taxi them to and from appointments.
If you would like a GPS track of our walk, please request this and I will be happy to oblige.
Cat care. If you are going away and require someone to look after your cat, I can go feed, change litter and give some affection. Although they are independent creatures, they still love a scratch behind the ear or under the chin, and will surely be missing their owners, as much as you will them. So you can take comfort from knowing they are having some human interaction while you are away.
Other small animals I can care for (but not limited to) are rabbits, hamsters, rats, guinea pigs, tortoises, budgies, bearded dragons and geckos. This can be either in your own home, or if their dwelling is small enough, I can look after in my own home.
