My name is Lucy and I'm an animal lover! I grew up in Kent where I dreamed of having a house full of animals but unfortunately my mum was allergic so only owned small furries (who I adore) but had always longed for a dog of my own. I was (still am) animal mad and had every magazine, walls covered in posters and watched animal programs everyday.
I moved to Bristol in July 2016 and got my first puppy, Nova a Dobermann alongside having another dog, Ace the Vizsla, Dexter the Cat and Thor and Loki the Guinea pigs. Since getting Nova, my love for animals has developed and I decided that I wanted to take the move to create a career around them.
Puppy Tales offers dog walking (both solo and group walks) which include treats, water, lots of exercise, photo updates and a towel down afterwards. I ensure that your dog gets the appropriate exercise alongside enjoying themselves along the way. I aim to walk any dog and will cater their walks to each dogs individual needs and owners requests. I also offer pet sitting (daily and overnight). Daily visits vary and last from 30 minutes to an hour. I will play with your pet, feed them, let them out to the toilet and clean up any mess that may have occurred. If you need to go away for the night, I am available to pet sit in your home to relieve the stress and make sure your pet has lots of company while you are away. If this is a dog, one or two walks are included dependent on the length of time.
I offer dog training in your own home and in the local environment for basic obedience including recall, lead work. We now have puppy classes starting in Oldland Common. Call or message 07557276744 to find out more.
If you would like any more information then please do not hesitate to contact me - I am happy to meet you and your pet for you both to get to know me better.

Puppy Tales Pet Services Q&A
What inspired you to start your own business?
My Dobermann Nova inspired me to start my business. She was always a nervous puppy and this fear developed when she had bloat at 15 weeks requiring an overnight visit to the vet. I have worked hard to ensure she is comfortable in the presence of dogs and people and that I am able to read her body language effectively to ensure this.

I am a force free, reward based trainer. I will only use positive methods when working with dogs. I believe in combating 'bad' behaviours by teaching an alternative behaviour. During these private sessions, I will help to train you to train your dog to become a more balance and behaved member of your family, both at home and out in public. We use force free, science based training to reward your dog for doing something that we like - this may be through verbal praise, toys or treats. Dog training involves having patience, the motivation and also understanding. We can teach our dogs to engage with us by positively reinforcing behaviours we do want with fun reward based games. Training sessions are conducted in the comfort of your own home however, we can venture outside into the local area depending on what training is being done. After the session, I will send you an email with a summary of what we with through during the session as well as a follow up email a week to 10 days after the visit. Examples of some of the areas I currently cover are: ● Basic commands, slowly building criteria & duration ● Fun games to help boost your relationship - including trick training ● Pulling on the lead ● Lack of recall ● Jumping up ● House training ● Crate training
Our walks include both physical (running) and mental stimulation (finding treats, tricks and much more) but just aim to be super fun for your dog! Puppy Tales Specialises in solo walks! Solo walks are great for dogs who are reactive, over-excited or require on-lead walks. These can be catered to your dogs training programme. We are happy to walk reactive dogs - we are completely aware of maintaining a safe distance for the dog and to keep them under their threshold. We try to include basic training whilst walking including recall and loose lead walking however, walks are mainly to ensure your dog gets a break during the day and has a fun time! If you are working on specific issues with your dogs then please let me know and we can see if we can cater these into their walks. We do walk small groups of dogs (2-3) dogs who are well matched and happy to be in each others company.
