Frequently Asked Questions
Q. If I go on holiday and leave my dogs at home, can you walk them?,
Unfortunately not, it is a requirement for you to have in place a suitable environment for your pets to be cared for. It is against the law to simply leave your dogs at home without supervision whilst you go away. Why not use our Home Boarding Service?
Q. Why do you advertise 50 or 25 minute walks?
You may have some dog walkers who charge you for a whole or half hour but is your dog really out walking for that whole time? We always give extra time for collection and drop off. For example, If you opt for a 50-minute walk, we will walk your dog for the full 50-minutes and any extra time it takes to drop off will not be charged.
Q. Will I meet my new dog walker?
Yes of course, we will always send your local dog-walker to meet you and your pet.
Q. Do you offer upgrades or extensions to the walk or boarding?
Of course, we are very flexible as long as you contact your local dog-walker as soon as possible.
Q. What prompted you to do dog-walking and boarding?
