Dog walking whilst you are at work or away on holiday. 
Pet care
in your home or our home.

Dogs prefer a structured life and daily walks are an important part of keeping your dog healthy and mentally stable. Dogs are natural walkers by instinct only allowing your dog to run round your garden doesn’t satisfy their desire to walk and travel. Walking your dog daily as huge benefits and is a very important part of training; a daily walk will exercise your dog’s body and mind. Walking your dog helps to prevent behavioural problems at home, because a bored dog with energy to spare will put its energy into less desirable activities. Walking stimulates the mind and a daily walk will help with your other training efforts. All dogs should be taken on daily walks, even the tiny dogs, the length of the walk will vary based on the size and energy of the dog, but all dogs should be taken on frequent walks. Dogs of all breeds that are taken for daily walks, and made to walk beside or behind the owner are less likely to be destructive, obsessive, have separation anxiety and dominancy issues, among many other behaviour problems. It’s not always possible for a dog owner to walk their dogs on a daily basis and this is where we can help, we can walk your dogs whilst you are at work, away on business, out for the day or on your annual holiday. Boarding kennels tend to keep dogs locked up most of the day and this can lead to behavioural problems, stress and health issues for your dogs. We offer an alternative in which you pay for your dog to be cared for, walked, loved and mentally stimulated whilst you are away, instead of just paying for accommodation which leaves your dog locked up most of the time. We can do this by visiting your dog several times a day in your home, or if you prefer your dog can stay with use and live as one of our own pets until you return. Why pay for accommodation when you could just pay for care, exercise and mental stimulation, we can also feed your dogs at their usual time which also helps them to keep to their normal routine.     

Most dog welfare organisations consider home boarding/sitting in which your pet is cared for in an home environment is preferable to boarding kennels. This is because confinement can be stressful for a dog and may leads to behavioural problems or stress related illnesses. A boarding kennel environment is very different to your home with lots of dogs barking, unfamiliar smells, lack of human contact, a change of routine, a lack of exercise and stimulation which could potentially mean a stressful experience for your dog.
