walking the hounds.

A dog walker for your dog is essential, if your out all day at work, or maybe you have weekend plans and you want to break up a long day at home for your dog.

Dogs essentially are very sociable creatures and should never be left alone for long extended periods.

Our walks are a simple enough concept ( which is why it works) we pick you dog up at arrange time, I personally do not like vans and the idea of driving one is very off putting, on a personal level. 

I have a MPV currently with a huge boot space, with a secured dog guard up and while i do not use cages for my young puppy clients i do use a puppy cage. 

I then collect other dogs and arrive at the location, all my dogs get an hours walk excluding travel most of the time, in times of extreme weather, extra traffic etc i may have to include the travel time towards the one hour this is only in extreme circumstance.

Walking in small groups, i try and make the terrain varied, so grass, fields, woods, hills,  and in summer clean streams. Living in High Peak we are spoilt for places to go in the summer in can get tricky dodging the crowds and the sheep, but not impossible. 

All my clients will experience time off and on the lead, I only have one dog on my books who cant be off the lead, as she is a rescue. Getting recall correct when you dog is young is essential so your dog can be truly happy on walks to be off the lead, to get adequate exercise, to satisfy  roam, sniff, and explore urges that are very natural to your dog. 

With puppies its highly recommend you visit a a puppy training class, to get the tools you need so your dog does not pull on the lead, and knows recall, and of course socialising.

After the walk we drop out clients off, we towel all our clients down, we have towels, if you leave a towel out thats a bonus.
