It maybe you don't have the time to walk, due to work or other commitments, you may not be mobile enough to do the long walks, or maybe your dog hasn't had much interaction with other dogs. We aim to walk your dog in a safe environment with other friendly dogs, encourage play and excercise and treat them through out, they will be returned happy and content, allowing you peace of mind whilst you attend to your daily chores. See our section below on Group and one to one dog walks for more information.
Dogs are naturally pack animals and love to socialise with other dogs, what better way to ensure they have all these things outside in the fresh air where dogs love to be. We encourage small group walks to ensure your dog is getting the best out of their time. We offer half hour and hourly dog walks.
Other than the general improvements to your dog’s well-being, which they get from their usual walk with you, our group walks can also provide other benefits:
Regular walking develops a routine and can improve behaviour
Interaction with other dogs increases their confidence
‘Running with the pack ’improves general health & fitness
Dogs will be introduced to new fun environments
Dogs get to go out ‘whatever the weather’
Your dog will thank you for a walk with his ‘four legged ’friends
By expelling your dog's energy, you are allowing him to better focus on you, which greatly aids in training. If your dog is wound up & excited, he is much more likely to be distracted and unable to keep his attention focused on you, whether you are teaching him basic manners or trying to teach him some new tricks.
Not only does walking or running provide physical stimulation, but exploring their surroundings with their senses is also greatly instinctual which will tire them out and keep their mind and body healthy and balanced.
Group walks provide an ample opportunity for socialisation. It is amazing to see the difference between taking your dog for an off leash walk alone and taking him with a pack of 3 or more dogs. Even though being with their pack mates can make them more playful and riled up, I find that my dog is better behaved on pack walks, as well as more balanced and relaxed. Even dogs who aren't used to or don't love interacting with other dogs can benefit from a pack walk as long as the group has the right dynamic.
When out for a walk, private or in a group, your dog will encounter other people, other dogs, perhaps other animals as well as noises and scents that they likely do not get to experience at home. This will inspire confidence in your dog, again helping him be more balanced and relaxed.
We will carefully select other dogs with friendly, outgoing personalities, similar to your own dog’s to give them a safe, fun and stimulating outing.Walking is an instinctual, natural activity for dogs that enables them to expel energy and stimulate both their mind & body. A good walk can significantly tire and calm an excited, hyper or high energy dog. This will save your home from destruction caused by boredom as well as allow your dog to thrive as a balanced member of your family.
One to One Dog Walks
There are many reasons why dogs may need to be walked alone, they may be old and less able to keep up with the more energetic, the last thing they want is to be knocked by the younger ones. They may not be the most sociable of pets around other animals and prefer the one to one attention. What ever the reason we can talk to you during consultation and determine the reasons and offer you a one to one service where we can individually look after your pets needs and tailor a suitable walk to ensure you dog is getting good exercise.
Your dog will thank you for providing them with quality time and heaps of affection they will receive.
Individual walks will allow your dog to go at their own speed, this is great for the less mobile
They will get undivided attention, play time and stimulation

One-to-one dog walks can be arranged on a regular weekly basis, or as infrequent or one-off events when you are unable to walk your dog yourself.
