So as ever I am a busy bee, we have had one or two dogs leave since end of last year, but i am unsure if we have any vacancies for new clients, depends on the location and the dog, i guess. The two main services we offer are dog walking and cat sitting. LHH also does puppy visits, small pet visits, however with puppy visits i would be pressed to fit that into my schedule these days, being a one man band. Things like toilet visits, daycare, dog walking at the weekend, i only offer to my actual current clients, as a way of helping the out them they need ,e, as Little Happy Hounds, has no employees, we are not some huge business, I am always in the danger of spreading myself to thin, and some times, just sometimes i like to do things for myself, that is not just all about work ! Our pet sitting does very well, mostly cats, I look after them at peoples homes, offering one or two visits a day. Its very much a personalised, caring, experienced service that I offer. I am have been for almost five years, a trusted key holder, I have a CRB check, although its out of date for the last year, did not see the point in paying lot of money for a new one as i am established business. Little Happy Hounds also has business insurance. The other busy, popular service we offer is dog walking. I have lots of little rules with dog walking which to be fair makes me sound really awkward and picky. However I have long term clients to think about and i want each walk they are on with me to be brilliant. So I can’t offer solo walks, i have done that in the past, its very time consuming, i don’t really enjoy taking dogs out 1-2-1, plus the other big thing at Little Happy Hounds, is we do don’t walk dogs with behavioural problems, once again i have done that before and for me the distinction between being a dog walker and being a dog therapist is a long and wide one, all our clients are socialised, walked as part of a pack, and I work on obedience, praise based training with them when i can when we are out on our walks. The other thing is i don’t walk dogs on leads, ( obviously near roads, exiting the car etc i do use leads) , its really hard to have control of three dogs off lead while your attached to a dog on lead who can’t be let off, dogs get more exercise off leads, i keep control of them, via my voice, treats, whistle, squeaky ball, we avoid busy places, places were there are sheep or roads, and all my dogs have recall, i understand some dogs roam more than they should and need to be walked on a lead etc sadly we can’t cater for them. My other huge rule is they must be good in the car, i hate vans, i hate cages, i spend a huge part of my working day driving, so i have a estate car of sorts, and i actively encourage a happy medium in the car, as one stressed out dog, can cause a lot of stress for everyone else, sometimes the dogs can be in the car for a long time, during the picking up and dropping off! That all being said i am also very flexible, work at short notice, reliable, and look after all my clients, i think they all know i am their for them via email or text if they have any issues or questions at all. so all in all i am happy with the Little Happy Hounds.
