As standard we offer a professional dog walking service but can also provide day care services such as: letting your dog out, feeding and general care. We tailor the service specifically around your requirements. We are also fully dog first aid qualified and enhanced DBS checked too.
St ALBANS DOG WALKING
With vast amounts of countryside walks available we are literally spoilt for choice! We are very flexible at Playful Pups, and the team can provide either a daily or occasional dog walking service for an hour or 30 minutes on an individual basis, or in a group, depending on your preference and the needs of your dog.
We can also provide walks in a location of your choice, which is familiar to you and your dog if this is preferred. Each walk will provide your dog with the mental stimulation they require, by making the walk fun and interesting, and also by providing socialisation with other dogs. The walks will vary from a good run about chasing and playing with balls and Frisbees, to simply a good explore in the countryside.
Dogs can be walked on or off the lead depending on your preference, and the dog’s ability to demonstrate a solid recall. Basic training can also be provided upon request- however please note this may carry an additional charge depending on the requirements.
Initial dog walking consultations will be held with you at your home, and we will take your dog for a short walk together as part of this process. Playful Pups will carry out a full behaviour assessment prior to any dog walking, to assess your dogs' personality.
Pet visits are ideal for letting dogs out to the toilet, and were created with puppies and senior dogs 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 providing them with the company and socialisation they crave. Many dogs can develop behavioural problems such as chewing, digging and barking when left alone. These behaviours are normally the result of boredom or insufficient exercise.
Each visit will be tailored to your dog's individual needs, and we will ensure that they are fed and watered as per your instructions. They will be let out for a toilet break if they are kept indoors, and any accidents will be cleared up.
If the visit is to a puppy, then they will be afforded with lots of play time! Playing and interacting with your puppy will help with socialisation, to assist them for when they are 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 adapt to household life quickly.
A collection service is available free of charge, providing you live within 4 miles of the walker's home address. If you live outside of the 4 miles’ radius,this may be subject to an additional cost.
