I offer transportation and walks for your dog(s) in the beautiful countryside of County Durham. Prior to any dog being taken for walks I will speak to you about your dog(s) and your own requirements for the service and what you are looking to get from it. It is important to find out as much as possible about your dog, their health and their personality to ensure the service they receive is tailored specifically to them. 60 minute walks are usually sufficient for most dogs but shorter walks for older or less able dogs can be arranged as well as longer walks for bigger or more energetic dogs. Dogs walked during late morning, lunchtime and early afternoon are generally walked as part of a group and this allows them to socialise and play with other dogs. For dogs who do not get on with other dogs or have behavioral issues which may disrupt the group then solo walks can also be arranged but this would generally (not always) be outside of the peak lunchtime period. I will collect your dog(s) from your home and transport them to a suitable park or country trail. Dogs love to explore by nature and so we will never go to the same place 2 times in a row. Included in the walk is plenty of play time for your dog(s) to help them burn off their excess energy as well as having fun. During the walk and playtime your dog will be constantly monitored to make sure they are maintaining a comfortable temperature. After the walk is completed your dogs will be given plenty of fresh drinking water and checked to ensure their coat is clear and free from tangles. I will then transport your dog(s) back to your home. At all times while in my care your dog(s) safety and well-being are my top priorities and I am fully insured, CRB checked and first aid trained.

What do you love most about your job?

My job allows me to combine a love of the outdoors and exploration with a love of animals and in particular dogs. There is great appeal and satisfaction in meeting new people and their dogs and taking those dogs on new adventures to new and favourite places. Being around animals has been proven to lower your blood pressure and stress levels so working with dogs can't be a bad thing!

What inspired you to start your own business?

After working in the NHS as a paramedic for just under 10 years and then a Government job for 4 years I enjoyed the challenge but longed to have the freedom to pursue my passions and work for myself. I have always been an animal person and come from a family of dog lovers. During my time in the emergency services I admired the work of police and prison service dogs and the dedication of their handlers to the welfare of the dogs as well as allowing them to thrive doing what they do best. Dog walking allows me to follow my passion while retaining the freedom of working for myself. It also allows me the flexibility to help clients who work outside the 9 til 5 environment.

Why should our clients choose you?

I believe that dogs should be dogs and it is important to allow them to do that. Speaking from personal experience I know how busy and chaotic the modern world can be and it can be difficult at times to give our furry friends the time that they need. All dogs have needs that must be fulfilled on a daily basis, some more urgent than others but all dogs feel happy and content when all of their needs are met. In many circumstances dogs who have developed unwanted behaviours do so because their basic needs are not being met. Part of a dog's daily needs is the requirement for exercise and to explore. A well exercised dog has a chance to shed excess energy which otherwise may manifest itself as anxiety or destructive behaviours. However dog walking also gives dogs social interaction, play time and the understanding that they are loved and a part of something.

Through my dog walking business I will help your dog to ensure their needs are being met leaving your dog happy, content as part of your loving family.

The price of hiring a dog walker will depend on the area of the UK in which you live, with prices typically higher in the South of England and particularly in London. The cost of hiring a dog walker will often be lower in the North of England and in Scotland and Wales.

The most important thing when you’re hiring a dog walker is that both you and your dog trust them. You should also ensure that your dog walker has public liability insurance that covers them in case of damage, accident or loss. The best way to find a reliable and trustworthy dog walker is by reading reviews of previous clients. When you hire a dog walker through Bark, you can browse the profiles of dog walkers in your local area and read honest reviews from genuine customers.

It is recommended that a dog walker should walk a maximum of four dogs at a time, to enable them to maintain good control of each dog. Most dog walkers will give you the option of having your dog walked alone or with other dogs. Walking with other dogs will help your dog to develop valuable social skills. However, if your dog is reactive, you may prefer for them to be walked alone.
