Playful Pups Services
From the free initial consultation, to the moment we deliver your dog after a fun afternoon with one of our trained professionals, Playful Pups will tailor our services to your needs and the needs of your dog. We offer more than a walk around the block, Playful Pups offers a true, memorable experience for your pet. If your pet has any special needs or you have a particular training routine in place, our team will ensure those needs are met and your dog will receive the best of care. In many cases, our team can meet most requests including those for medicine dosing or other medical conditions your pet might have.
Not only does Playful Pups offer the highest levels of care and service for our clients, we also offer high levels of care and attention for their pets. Our priority is your satisfaction and your pet's happiness. Contact us for a free initial consultation and meet our friendly, attentive staff today!
Basildon and its surrounding areas have a great selection of parks and open spaces to walk your four legged friends. 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. Discounts are also available for walking a second dog from the same household.
All dogs enjoy a long walk and exploring with their noses, therefore each walk will be carefully selected to ensure that your dog receives the mental stimulation they require. This will range from a good chase about playing with balls and frisbees, to exploring the beautiful parks and woodland areas nearby.
We can also provide walks in a location of your choice, which is familiar to you and your dog if this is preferred. Dogs can be walked on or off the lead depending on your preference, and the dog’s ability to demonstrate a solid recall.
Initial dog walking consultations will be held with you at your home, so that a behavioural assessment can be carried out by the walker. We will then take your dog on a short walk together so that the walker can assess your dog’s personality and recall ability.
Day care & boarding services
We offer day care and home boarding services which will give you peace of mind that your dogs will be getting the love and affection they deserve, in a family environment, whilst you are away. There are no kennels and cages involved, they will join us as part of our family and will be afforded all the love and care your dog requires according to your instructions.
Day care is charged at £12 per day and home boarding at £15 per night. A 50% discount is offered for additional dogs from the same household.
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.
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.
Each of the dog walking and pet visit services are tailored to our customers’ individual needs. Standard service charges are listed below, however if these services don't quite fit your requirements, please contact the team so we can discuss any special requests.
Initial Set-up Visit - We come out to meet you and your pets, become familiar with your house, pick up keys and complete all necessary paperwork, this is FREE of charge. Please note a discount is available if two dogs are walked from the same household.
