OUR SERVICES

As standard, we offer dog walking services but alongside this we can also offer day care services for dogs and other small pets. Visits can include things like; letting your dog out for that all-important toilet break, feeding and much more. We tailor the service to you and your pet’s particular requirements.

Lancaster Doggy Day Care

With countryside and riverside walks abound all over Lancaster, we are literally spoilt for choice! We realise that flexibility is important so with that in mind, Playful Pups can provide either a daily or occasional dog walking service for an hour or 30 minutes on an individual basis, or in a group. It will depend entirely on your preference and the needs of your dog. Discounts are also available for walking a second dog from the same home.

All dogs enjoy a long, leisurely walk and exploring with their noses, so each walk will be carefully selected to ensure that your dog receives the mental stimulation they require. This will range from playing with balls and Frisbees,a good run-around or just exploring the beautiful woodland areas and other open spaces that Lancaster has to offer.

We can also provide walks in a familiar location of your choice if that is preferable.

Dogs can be walked on or off the lead depending on your inclination and the dog’s ability to demonstrate a solid recall. Basic training can also be provided if required, however please note this may carry an additional charge depending on the training content.

An initial consultation will be held with you at your home so that a behavioural assessment can be carried out. We will then take your dog on a short walk so that the walker can assess your dog’s personality and level of 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 and may need a toilet break. They're also great for providing a break in the amount of time your pet(s) would otherwise be left unattended while you are out at work, and also for providing them with the company and socialisation all dogs need. Many dogs can develop behavioural problems such as digging or chewing, barking or clawing when left alone. These behaviours are normally the result of boredom or lack of exercise. Pet visits are also available for other small animals including cats, rodents and reptiles.

If the visit is to a puppy, then they will be afforded with lots of play time! Playing and interacting with your puppy is important as it will help with socialisation and will also assist them when they are ready to take their first steps into the outside world! During the visit, basic dog training techniques will be incorporated so that your puppy will learn good manners, and adapt to household life quickly.

Renergize your Lancaster dog with frequent dog walking.
Your Lancaster dog will be happier and healthier.
