OUR SERVICES

At Playful Pups, we not only offer dog walking services, we can also offer day care services for dogs and other small pets such as cats, rodents and reptiles. Visits will include things such as letting your dog out, feeding and much more. We tailor the service to you and your pet’s specific requirements.

Portsmouth Doggy Day Care

With a huge amount of both countryside and waterside walks available in Portsmouth, we aredefinitely spoilt for choice! We are very flexible at Playful Pups - the team can provide either a daily or occasional dog walking service for either an hour or 30 minutes on an individual basis, or in a group, depending on your preference and the needs of your dog.A discount is also available for walking a second dog from the same household.

All dogs appreciate a long walk and exploring with their noses, we therefore carefully select each walk to ensure that your dog receives the mental stimulation they require. This will range from a run around with some pals, playing with balls and Frisbees, to exploring the beautiful countryside and wooded areas that Portsmouth has to offer.

We can also provide walks in a location of your choice. Perhaps a route or area that is familiar to you and your dog.

Depending on your preference and the dog’s ability to demonstrate a solid recall, dogs can be walked on or off the lead. Basic training can also be provided upon request, however please note that an additional charge may be made, depending on the requirements.

Initial dog walking consultations 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 brief walk together so that the walker can assess your dog’s personality and aptitude for recall.

Pet Visits

Pet visits are ideal for letting dogs out to the toilet, and were created with older dogs and puppies in mind as they may be unable to hold themselves for long periods of time. 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 for giving them the company and socialisation they need. Many dogs can develop behavioural problems such as scratching, chewing, digging or barking when left alone for many hours. These behaviours are normally as a result of the dog being bored or not having sufficient exercise. Pet visits are also available for other small animals including cats, rodents and reptiles.

If the visit is to a puppy, then lots of play time will be on the agenda! Playing and interacting with your puppy helps with socialisation and gets them ready to take their first steps into the big wide world! During the visit, basic dog training techniques will be incorporated so that your puppy will learn good manners, and be able to adapt to household life quickly.

Your Portsmouth dog will have more energy and playfulness with frequent dog walking.
Let your Portsmouth dog live a happier, healthier life.
