Not been blogging much as I have been a busy bee and after work finishes I have had little energy to do anything else. Its a combination of cold weather, now doing three daily one hour walks, and caring for young happy hounds our puppies that has well and truly left my energy levels depleted. Don’t get me wrong I love my job its just very busy and when your self employed I just have to go with the busy periods as I will have a quieter period just around the corner.
So my own dog turned 9 years old the end of march without him, I would not of followed the path that has lead me to pet care work. He is doing really well, I am juggling his walks with work so he mostly misses my first daily walk and tends to come on second and third walks, if my lunch time walk is busy walk 2 he goes on morning walk and misses lunch time walk and I pick him up again for third walk. Anyway he is happy and healthy. I took easter week off work to rest up, so we did lots of family days out with my dog Scrappy took him to the nine ladies standing stones over in Stanton moor near Matlock it was very dog friendly no sheep around so he was off lead, we had a really good week off.
So one of my newest clients is a young puppy called Ralph he is Lhasa aspso, so he has started to come on group walks, I am seeing the incredible wilfulness that is also in my dogs personality scrappy being half Shih Tzu. I am doing a combination of walking him and carrying him and sitting down with him as I play ball catcher with the others, I am going to quiet locations so its easy for me to balance older dogs and young puppies, its important that Ralph learns the ropes and comes back on command etc, the big issue we have had over the holidays which is one I get every holidays are dodging aggressive dogs, dogs we do not see during our usual routine but as soon as schools close there out, some on leads some off, so its been a memorable trying to keep my very well socialised clients safe on their walks. I definitely think there is a good argument these days for people getting their dogs some behavioural therapy.
On top of walking puppies, walking dogs this week, we have also looked after my fabulous cat sitting client Rosie, she just gets one daily visit so I have gone in the morning when before the dog walking commences so I have more time for her. She is really easy to care for she’s not fussed about going outside, just wanters her dinner really. So feeding, lots of strokes, a few dreaminess her litter tray maintained and she’s a happy girl. So this is a blog about Little Happy Hounds pet care, we have lots of cats booked in next few months, and new puppies Ralph, Ozzie, Coal and Pippa joining little happy hounds in 2018 as a small business we are very busy.
