Dog Walking - FULLY BOOKED
* 50% discount applicable if the 2nd dog resides in the same home and walked at the same time.
Here at Welland Valley Pet Care we specialise in one-to-one walks so that we can give each dog our full attention and provide walks bespoke to their individual needs. We also offer group walks up to a maximum of three households/5 dogs. We believe in maximising walking time by walking dogs directly from their door, rather than losing time travelling. However, on occasions to vary your dogs' walk, we may transport your dog to another location, with your permission.
We like to keep walks interesting for your dog, utilising parks, recreational grounds, fields & bridleways, canal towpaths, woodlands and even through town. However, if your dog has a favourite walk, please let us know. We also have access to a secure private field - ideal for recall training, socialisation and for dogs who just want to exercise alone. Your dog will return home, happy and tired after a fun time out with us. Our aim is to make each walk the highlight of your dogs day, giving them a chance to play, socialise, exercise and explore new sights and smells. As soon as we return back to you home, we will re-fill water bowls, towel dry your dog in wet weather and give treats (if allowed) before leaving your dog to rest.
We won't let your dog off lead without your consent and only then when we feel a bond has been established between dog and walker. For regular dog walking clients, your dog receives a free walk on/nearest to their birthday!
Sorry but we are unable to walk aggressive dogs for safety reasons.
We walk 6 days a week, including bank holidays (additional fees apply for weekends & Bank Holiday care, Easter, Christmas and New Year holidays).
Sometimes you just need someone to pop in and check that your dog is ok and to let them out. This is where our comfort break service is ideal.
We will pop round to check on your dog and let them out into the garden or in the case of dogs that like to do their business out and about, take them for a short 10 minute walk. We will refresh water
bowls, give treats or a meal, if required.
Canine Care Visits
Offering an alternative to a walk, our home visits are ideal for those who require special attention, such as puppies, older companions or those recovering from illness.
Let us know what you require and we will design a bespoke visit for your canine companions needs.
For example: companionship, feeding, garden play, basic training sessions etc.
Puppy & Adult Companionship Visits
A companionship visit designed to give your dog company during the day/evenings whilst you go out, tailor made to your requirements.
One of our carers will sit with your dog, take them out on long/short walks, provide toilet breaks, training sessions, feeding etc. Of course companionship, play and cuddles comes as standard!
Our companionship visits are so full of fun, so much so, your dog will forget that you've gone out!
Elderly Companionship Visits
A bespoke companionship visit to ensuring your elderly canine has everything they need. For example: short walks or toilet breaks, administration of medicines, feeding and friendship. Of course companionship, play and cuddles comes as standard!
Our carer has many years personal experience with elderly dogs and provides a fun visit at a slower pace.
Offering an alternative to a walk, why not invite our carer to bring a visit full of fun with lots of toys and games offering mental stimulation for your dog.
Our toy box is full of activity toys, snuffle mats, puzzle toys, treat balls, turn around toys, a variety of different size and shaped balls, and plush, rope and rubber toys to play with.
Why not treat your dog to a 2 hour walk through the beautiful local countryside? Or perhaps they would prefer a walk along the canal or lakeside, maybe a forest walk would be perfect for your little (or big!) explorer, a walk round a local country park or exclusive usage of a local dog walking field. This is no 'off lead play for hours with other dogs, its exercising your dog physically and mentally with enriching activities! Water & treats supplied.
Maximum of 2 medium or 3 small dogs per adventure walk.
Adventure walks are ideal for dogs that:
have lots of energy
like to travel
enjoy games and stimulating activities
who need and like more personal attention and focus
who show signs of over-excitement
who require more than just a 1-hour stroll
who show signs of boredom (chewing, digging and destructive behaviour)
who need quality enrichment
and those that LOVE to explore
ONLY SUITABLE FOR DOGS OVER 12 MONTHS OF AGE
