Whatever the reason I’m here to walk your dog for you!

I cater for one-off dog walks (for example if you’re going to a wedding or day trip) or regular bookings (perhaps daily while you’re at work).

On a walk with me your dog is guaranteed to have fun and hopefully come back tired and relaxed. Walks are varied and interactive and last for around 45-60mins depending on the route we take. Wherever possible I try to get all dogs to a stage where they can enjoy time off lead (only with your permission) but can also use a long line so the dog can have a good run without being off lead.

If your dog is sociable with other dogs then I will try to walk them as part of a group of usually 4-5 dogs, as walking in groups gives them a chance to interact and tires them out nicely!

Inevitably dogs will get dirty while having a good time but your dog will be cleaned up and dried as necessary before returning them to your home. They will be left just as I found them with topped up water and a wagging tail! You will also get a note left telling you where we’ve been, what we’ve been up to and how well the’ve behaved!

Sometimes dogs are walked from your home in the surrounding areas but more often I transport them in my van to do walks in other areas. The dogs travel in their own individual compartment which are sure to be clean and comfy. Water is constantly available during transit.

No dog too big, boisterous or badly behaved!

If your dog is a little over-enthusiastic on walks it is not a problem. I have experience dealing with all sorts of dogs with all sorts of little quirks! And if necessary I can implement some basic training while walking for regular clients.

Helen at Perfect-A-Pet provides a great dog walking service. She visits the dogs before agreeing to take them on for walks, to get to know any foibles and special needs that they may have. I have used the service for in excess of 6 years. My current dog looks forward to her walks and socialisation with Helen. A highly recommended local business.
