OUR SERVICES

We primarily offer dog walking services but we can also offer day care services for dogs and other small pets such as cats or rodents. Visits will include things such as feeding, letting your dog out for a toilet break and much more. We can specifically tailor the service to you and your pet’s requirements.

Dog Walking in Oxford

With an extensive choice of countryside and riverside walks available in Oxford, we are literally spoilt for choice! Flexibility is important to us at Playful Pups so we can therefore provide a variety of options when it comes to walks. They can either be on a daily basis or as an occasional dog walking service; can last for an hour or 30 minutes; and can be on an individual basis, or in a group, depending on your preference and the needs of your dog. Discounts are also available for walking a second dog from the same household.

All dogs relish a long, leisurely walk and exploring with their noses. Each walk will be carefully selected to ensure that your dog receives the mental stimulation they require and this will range from a run around playing with balls and Frisbees, to exploring the beautiful countryside and woodland areas that Oxford has to offer.

If you prefer, we can also provide walks in a location of your choice, somewhere that is familiar to you and your dog.

Dogs can be walked on or off the lead depending on your preference and your dog’s recall proficiency. Basic training can also be provided upon request. This may, however, carry an additional charge depending on your requirements.

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

Pet Visits

Pet visits are great for letting older dogs and puppies out to the toilet as they may be unable to hold themselves for long periods of time. They're also perfect for providing a break in the amount of time your pet(s) would otherwise be left unattended while you are out at work. Plus, it also gives them the company and socialisation they crave. Many dogs can develop certain behavioural problems such as chewing, scratching, digging or barking when left alone. These behaviours are normally the result of boredom or inadequate 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 attention and, of course, play time! Playing and interacting with your puppy will help them with socialisation and get them ready to take their first steps outside into the big wide world! During the visit, basic dog training techniques will be incorporated so that your puppy will learn some good manners, and also adapt to household life quickly.

Your Oxford dog will be more energetic and playful with frequent dog walking.
Your Nottingham pup will be happier and healthier.

Collection Services

A collection service is available free of charge, providing you live within 2 miles of the walker's home address. If you live outside of this range, then there will be a charge of 50p per mile each way.
