• Dog Walking

     

Are you unable to walk your dog due to your current circumstances changing or just out for the day, commitments at work, convalescing after an operation or illness? Whatever the reason let “Walk This Way” ease your stress and do it for you! 

Initially “Walk This Way” will arrange to meet you and your beloved dog at your home for an “Initial Consultation Meeting & Registration” this is FREE of charge. Every dog is assessed for behavioural qualities such as likes and dislikes, allergies he or she may have, temperament and breed traits before any bookings are undertaken. It is essential that we are able to offer a professional service and you have 100% faith in us, then the fun begins: 

Whatever the weather, “Walk This Way” are committed to exercising your pet. We will collect your beloved dog and take him/her for a fun walk on a designated route (this ensures you know the terrain and area they are in). Dogs can benefit greatly from a long, energetic fun walk and are then less likely to develop behavioural problems, as this ensures they are released from boredom and isolation. All dogs benefit from exercise mentally and physically after all dogs are pack animals and sociable creatures just like us. Your dog will receive individual attention as well as the companionship of other dogs who like nothing more than exercising in parks, open fields or woodland and once the walk is completed  “Walk This Way” will ensure that your pet is returned to your home towel dried and ready to be welcomed back into the home. Each walk lasts for around one hour; you have the option of morning, lunch time or afternoon.

If you wish your dog to be walked on an individual basis this is not a problem and older dogs and puppies can be given exercise at a pace more suitable to their ability.

Safety starts the second we collect your dog, as well as your dogs normal collar and tag we add a “Walk This Way” tag to the collar – just in case, we NEVER take more than 6 dogs out at any one time and all dogs need to be fully vaccinated and chipped. Please note that we can only walk well behaved, non-aggressive dogs.
