What I offer
Not just a Dog Walker!
"I don’t just do what it says on the tin! I offer your dog so much more.
Your dog will receive the greatest care and attention from Harris Hounds. As a former Royal Marine I am not phased by all the wonderful mixes of dogs; from boisterous to shy, or excitable to ones that just likes a bit of a plod.
The reason that I offer that first free 45 minute walk is so that I can get the measure of how they prefer to be. Then, if they enjoy socialising with other dogs and racing along a beach, that’s what they can have; an outlet to let off all that excess energy meaning that they are calm and happy when they get home.
If they are older, maybe quieter and are happier without canine company then that’s what they can experience here at Harris Hounds. After all, even dogs with lower energy levels require walkies for well being.
I love nothing more than being in the great outdoors too - so walks are always varied allowing your dog to develop their physical fitness and social skills. They get all they need; an affectionate hello, a long enjoyable run, a good sniff around to stimulate their senses, a towel dry, fresh water and food.
I can also visit dogs who don't need a walk but just need some company. Whether it includes some playtime, cuddle time, outside time or just food time, I am happy to cover all bases!
To ensure the safety of your dog and other walkers, I do not walk more than four dogs at any one time unless I know and trust them completely. This is in the best interest of everyone involved and also ensures that our adventures are enjoyed by human and dog alike!"
Dog Group Walking
60 minutes • From £12
From £8 additional charge for a dog from the same household.
If your dog enjoys the company of other dogs then this service is perfect for your pet. On a group walk I only walk a maximum of 4 dogs to ensure your dog still gets all the attention they need but they are able to socialise with other dogs.
The length of walk may vary but can be tailored to suit you and your dogs needs, it can be on or off the lead, the choice is yours!
On return home your dog will be towel dried, muddy paws cleaned, fresh water topped up and settled into their bed for a snooze
