OUR SERVICES

Our primary service is dog walking but we can also offer day care services for dogs and other small pets. Visits can include a variety of things including letting your dog out for a toilet break, feeding and much more. We specifically tailor the service to you and your pet’s requirements.

Derby Dog Walking

With a huge choice of riverside and countryside walks throughout Derby, it’s possible that no two walks will ever be the same! We are very flexible at Playful Pups and the team can provide either a daily walk or an occasional dog walking service for either an hour or 30 minutes. We can also walk your dog individually or as part of a group, depending on your preference and the needs of your dog. Discounts are available for a second dog from the same household.

All dogs enjoy a long, leisurely walk and need mental stimulation, therefore, each walk will be carefully selected to ensure this is provided. This can range from a run around and throwing a few balls and Frisbees, to exploring the beautiful countryside and woodland areas that Derby has to offer.

If preferred, we can also provide walks in a location of your choice so that the walk is familiar to you and your dog.

Depending on your preference and the dog’s ability to demonstrate a sound recall, dogs can be walked on or off the lead. Basic training can also be provided upon request but this may carry an additional charge, depending on the required instruction.

An initial dog walking consultation will be held with you at your home, enabling the walker to carry out a behavioural assessment. We will then take your dog on a short walk so that the walker can assess your dog’s personality and recall ability.

Pet Visits

Pet visits were created with puppies and senior dogs in mind, as they may be unable to hold themselves for long periods of time so a toilet break is very important! They're also great for providing a time out for your pet so that they are not left unattended for too long while you are out at work. These visits provide them with the company and socialisation they crave. Many dogs can develop behavioural problems such as chewing, digging and barking when left alone for too long a period. These behaviours are normally the result of boredom or inadequate exercise. Pet visits are also available for other small animals including reptiles, cats and rodents.

If it’s a puppy we are visiting, then they will be given lots of attention and play time! Playing and interacting with your puppy helps them to integrate with others and gets them ready to take their first steps into the big world beyond their doorstep! During the visit, basic dog training techniques will be included so that your puppy will garner good manners and learn to adapt to household life quickly.

Your Derby dog will have renewed energy and more playfulness with frequent dog walks.
Your Derby dog will be happier and healthier.

Collection Services

A collection service, which is free of charge, is available if you live within 2 miles of the walker's home address. If you live outside of the 2 miles’ radius, however, then there will be a small charge of 50p per mile each way.
