Short walks from home are available once vaccinated and until their bones are fully grown, with the option to use the adult walks from the service later on if required.

CHANGES TO THE SERVICE 

The service aims to provide what is agreed where possible on the day as it's important all paws receive the proper care they need. However unexpected problems can occur that may result in walks/visits starting late or unavoidably cancelled such as car breakdowns, but thankfully these incidents are very rare. If the service is having issues on the day you will be naturally informed and kept up to date of the situation as it develops. During periods of extreme weather, such as heatwaves, the service is automatically changed to ensure the welfare of the pets are maintained by offering house visits instead of walks. 

COVID-19 FRIENDLY!

The biggest issue the service is currently being affected by is the on going Covid-19 pandemic.

To ensure the welfare of the pets are kept at a high standard, I have undertaken a Covid-19 Course and adapted the service to help keep you and your pet safe that includes...

  • Social Distancing, wearing face coverings and applying hand-sanitizer during visits.

  • Disinfecting surfaces touched in households when doing house visits and using my own leads
    .
  • Walking dogs from suspected Covid households separately from other clients and at the end of the working day.

  • Wiping dogs down with a pet safe biodegradable, disposable wipe before and after walks from Covid suspected households.

  • Disinfecting the car crates, interior & exterior handles and driver controls between jobs and changing the crate bedding for the next client to use.

These measures are based on the guidelines that have been set out by the Canine & Feline Sector Group (CFSG) from 29th May 2020. Full document HERE. These measures will remain in place or be adapted for as long as required by government advice...or for as long as you feel the need for it for your own reassurance. 

SERVICE UPDATE FROM 29/06/20

There is currently at least one "Yappy Group Walk" happening each day. All other walks are being done from home where the summer weather allows. House visits are operating as normal whilst following the Covid guidelines above and on the agreement that the owner will be away from the home during the visit. If I am required to self isolate, then service will need to temporarily cease to keep all safe. For ease of mind it is extremely advisable for all clients to have an alternative back up plan for their pet, should they urgently require help if the service suddenly becomes unavailable for a short while.

NEW CLIENTS WELCOME!!!

Despite these Covid times spaces are available for new clients!

Consultations can still be carried out by special arrangement. 

Meeting the dog is still essential prior to service but this can be done in the Owner's garden where the dog can wonder freely in and out of the house to meet me whilst we can discuss your requirements through a window or similar. Paperwork is required to be filled out, including the Veterinary Release Form, which are prepared well in advance of the consultation. 

The service covers the following towns/villages...

Horsham, Broadbridge Heath,

Wickhurst Green, Highwood & Southwater

ABOUT ME 

I'm originally from Surrey, and, despite growing up with dogs in the beautiful Surrey Hills, I discovered there was more to learn from them then I ever thought possible from just being an owner. After jumping through shop jobs when I left school, I soon found work with them and it was immediately an enjoyable and rewarding experience to be part of their lives. Over the years I've come across many different characters, each dog being so unique with their personalities and life experiences.

I grew fascinated by how they think, make decisions and communicate to each other as well as us. And after working with dogs who suffered mental and physical traumas in their past, I not only became even more intrigued by how their behaviour was reflected by it, but an increasing passion had grown to help them overcome their issues. To enhance my career further to fulfill this, I started undertaking professional development courses, the most current course being a Level 4 Diploma in Advanced Canine Behaviour, run by the British College of Canine Studies (a Pet Education, Training & Behaviour Council accredited course - PETbc). My unit passes have all been distinctions and I am soon to become a qualified behaviour practitioner on completion this year with the long term aim to become an approved member of the Canine & Feline Behaviour Association (CFBA). Choosing a career with dogs is without a doubt, one of the best decisions I ever made all those years ago, and I'm excited to see how that career grows in the coming decades.
