Dog walking

Our solo or one to one professional dog walking service in St Albans can be tailored to meet your dog’s and your own needs and requirements.

One canine carer can walk your dog if that’s what you would prefer. This way they get to know your dog and their preferences.

Does your dog bark or lunge at other dogs and display signs that they’re nervous and uncomfortable? They will a dog walker who is calm, patient, understanding and trained in canine body language.

Is your dog elderly and do they prefer pottering around on a walk rather than having a high impact group walk where the younger dogs are more rowdy?

Or is your dog a new puppy or rescue dog and you would like to reinforce training and ensure they’re getting individual attention while they settle into their new home?

This is where our solo and one to one dog walking service can help.

If you would like a dog walk that’s mentally enriching for your dog then we can practise things such as eye contact, loose lead walking and recall games. These examples incorporate training into the dog walk.
You may like a relaxing dog walk for your dog. This is where we can go to a quiet spot, let your dog off (if it’s safe to do so and with your permission) and let them have a wander round, exploring and sniffing out rabbit holes. We can place treats underneath leaves and ask them to find them.
With a dog walk that’s focused on exercise we can provide outlet’s for your dog to let off steam by sprinting and running round in short bursts.

Customers tell us that our solo dog walking service is more personal than group walkers they’ve used in the past as we can devote the time attention and care your dog deserves. They say their dog comes back relaxed, sleepy and happy!

We’ve also invested a lot of time and money on training courses to ensure that we have extensive knowledge of dogs and their body language when providing a dog walker service to you and your canine companion.
