Dog Walking & Pet Sitting

We are primarily a dog walking / pet sitting service but there are occasions when we will consider cats but only in the owners home…

Before taking on any dog, we arrange an initial meeting with the owner(s) to meet their dog(s) to ascertain if the owners and ourselves are compatible as well as ensuring the dog(s) are happy to be in our company and vice versa. A happy and relaxed relationship with owners and their pets is paramount to ensure that the welfare of the dog takes precedence. We also ask for a questionnaire to be completed prior to accepting any dog. This provides us with additional information on the  dog(s) routine, behaviour, likes and dislikes to ensure that we only contact the owner in exceptional circumstances. whilst they are at work or on holiday.

The usual procedure will be for dogs to be collected from their own home and taken for walks in one of the local parks or beach areas. They will be taken in groups and walked on or off the lead as per arrangement with the owner. Once a week there is a walk up Divis and Black Mountain, so there may be an opportunity for your dog(s) to be included on this walk.  On return from walks, your dog(s) will be rubbed down where appropriate, and their water checked & refilled if necessary. Finally, your dog will either receive a small treat from either one of us or given the one you have left out for them. We will also will make sure they are settled before leaving the house.

Walks are Monday – Friday 9am – 5pm. 

Walks outside these hours may be possible but at a higher rate and only by prior arrangement.
