As with us humans, our pets need regular and consistent exercise to live long, healthy and happy lives.
Walking not only gets your dog the exercise they need but it also stimulates their senses. Your dog gets to see, smell, feel and hear all types of new and interesting things when out for a walk. Our walk can also include meeting other people or animals which can be an excellent way to encourage socialisation for your pup, dependent on your dog’s needs and personality. As humans, we can often take for granted these brief encounters and we can easily forget that these are frequently the highlights of our pet’s day.
Simply put, a tired dog can help lead to a calm and well-balanced dog. Regular walking helps to release excess energy in your pup which means they will be less inclined to bark and create negative, unwanted behaviour.
We will collect your dog/dogs from your home, take them on a fun walk of 30 to 60 minutes as discussed in our Free Home Consultation then return them to your home.
Our solo walk is great for dogs that may need individual care. Perhaps a more senior dog who likes to walk at a slower pace or dogs recovering from illness or surgery.
The solo walks are also tailor made for dogs who may not be comfortable around other dogs and need the time and space to relax.
This walk is also ideal for any dogs that have behavioural issues that require dedicated time and structure.
We will ensure they have fresh water during their walk and will fill up water bowls at home on our return. We’ll also towel dry your pooches before we deliver them home. We can also feed your dog or provide medication if we have instructions to do so.
Your dog(s) will be collected in our specialised van which has individual crates to ensure your dog is transported legally, safely and comfortably at all times.
We plan our schedule so that your dog is travelling for the minimum amount of time possible.
Our walks are always in a safe, dog friendly environment close to your area, we can also go on themed walks so that your dog has a change of scenery for new sniffs!
Dogs are teamed up with suitable companions to ensure they fully enjoy themselves! They will be introduced one at a time to create a calm and happy introduction. Once we are happy that they are well acquainted and enjoy each other’s company… they have fun friends for life!
We will walk a maximum of 4-5 dogs on any walk, this means we can remain safe and monitored at all times.
*We will keep your dog on a lead unless you request otherwise*
After lots of play, fun and interaction with other dogs, your dog will be delivered back home, tired, content, happy and towel dried!
This is so important to us. At Happy Dogs, a walk is a walk. We do not take our dogs to premises with a secured field and let them run around. It’s the travelling on foot together, discovering new smells and surroundings that is so joyful for our dogs!
*For GROUP walks, it is imperative that your dog does not show any sign of aggression to other dogs and be friendly towards humans*
