A bit about me.
Your dogs’ safety and well being is my first priority. I am canine first aid trained, fully insured and CRB checked for your peace of mind.
Working? Busy? Immobile? Unwell? On holiday?
Occasional or regular dog walks available giving you the peace of mind and freedom to enjoy your dog's company knowing they’re well exercised and socialised.
Dogs will be walked on trails, tracks, woodland and moorland unless you make specific pavement request.
Once your dog shows good recall, and with your consent, your dog will be off lead for the majority of the walk (during lambing season this may be reduced).
For security your house key will be stored behind two locks within my home and coded to allow address details to be stored separately in a secure place.
max 6 dogs per walk
Your dog will be collected for group walks. Only 6 dogs per walk maintains safety and positive social interactions for all dogs.
The timing of walk begins once the dogs are out and about (travelling time not charged for).
After a good run, play and fun (whatever the weather) we will return home.
All dogs are given a brief rinse, groom and dry to help bonding and as a chance to check for ticks or bumps.
Fresh water will be given and your dog can look forward to a well earned rest.
Once a week, or more frequently to meet demand, a 3 hour hike is available for more energetic dogs.
These hikes take us far out into the beauty of our West Yorkshire countryside, dogs will experience a range of new and exciting stimuli supporting their well being and fitness.
As with shorter walks your dog will be given a brief grooming on return and fresh water to allow them to rest up for your return.
Free Initial Consultation
We will arrange a mutually convenient time to meet in your home.
This first meeting is important to begin a positive relationship with your dog, I will take time to get to know your dog’s personality and find out any specific needs which will impact on their care.
It is extremely important your dogs’ individual needs are met during our group walks and this is your chance to outline any expectations or preferences for your dogs’ care.
A bit about me
Your dogs’ safety and well being is my first priority.
I am canine first aid trained, fully insured and full DBS checked for your peace of mind.
I have owned animals the majority of my life and love to spend time with them especially enjoying the great outdoors together.
I have previous experience as a stable hand working with horses, dogs and chickens on a small holding before beginning my career as a children’s Speech and Language Therapist.
As a keen amateur hill walker and being forest school trained I am an all weather outdoor kind of person and actually enjoy those rainy muddy days!
Pop in visits
Puppys, kittens or small animals may benefit from our shorter pop in visits.
Up to half an hour to include playtime, cleaning trays, cages or letting your puppy pop out to the garden.
The freedom to leave your pet for a short break or holiday or while at work, with the knowledge they are being cared for.
Covid Safe Practice
As the government tells us in England to ‘stay alert’ changes to our lives will be slow and steady. Our dogs have all got into new habits and routines which with time may need to change, I want to make that as smooth as possible.
I hope you understand my service will be reduced for some time. I plan to move to full service as the government risk level drops.
The health of all our families is my first priority, over and above getting to full service. Please do not feel any pressure to use my services until you feel it is safe for you to do so.
Who can I provide a service to?
While the government assesses the risk level to be 4/3 I will offer walks to households which are:
🐾 symptom free
🐾 required to leave the house to work
🐾 shielded people or key workers
Once levels drop to level 3 I hope to offer services more widely.
To avoid the low risk of cross contamination between households via dogs I will:
🚐 Reduce dogs in the van (and on walks) to 3 at any one time
🚐 Use my slip leads, avoiding contamination of leads & collars
🚐 Clean down cages between walks
To keep us all safe and reduce risks when entering your homes I will:
🏡 Wear a mask
🏡 Sanitise my hands on arrival and departure
🏡 Maintain 2 metres social distancing
🏡 Use a clean cloth to touch any surfaces (handles etc)
🏡 Use my slip leads, avoiding touching cupboards/leads/collars
🏡 Follow national handover guidelines
If you wish to leave soapy water and a cloth available I will wash down dogs before leaving them.
While out walking
Due to busier footpaths and walkways, and to re-accustom the dogs to each others’ company, the following will apply:
🐶 Reduce maximum dogs on each walk to 3
🐶 Keep dogs on lead for majority of walk
🐶 Walk as local as possible to last pick up point
I will review all practices as government and advisory bodies advices become available and let you all know if anything changes.
If you have any questions or concerns please get in touch.
Stay safe and well!
