One to One Dog Walking

Benefits of One-to-One Walks

Focused Interaction: One-to-one walks ensure that the dog receives undivided attention from the walker, addressing specific needs and preferences.
Customised Activities: The walker can tailor the walk based on the individual dog's energy levels, health concerns, and behavioral requirements.
Training Reinforcement: One-to-one walks provide an opportunity to reinforce specific commands and behavioral training without distractions e.g. sitting at kerbs.
Adaptability: The pace of the walk can be adjusted based on the dog's individual needs, allowing for a more comfortable and enjoyable experience.
Sensory Relaxation: Dogs can explore their surroundings without the sensory overload that may occur in a group walk.
Quality Bonding Time: One-to-one walks provide an opportunity for a deeper bond between the dog and the walker.
Specific Exercise Needs: The walker can address the dog's unique exercise requirements, focusing on particular muscle groups or fitness goals.
Rehabilitation Support: One-to-one walks are ideal for dogs undergoing rehabilitation or with specific health concerns.
Tailored Timing: Owners have the flexibility to schedule walks based on their specific availability, making it convenient for both the owner and the dog.

FAQs

Yes, One-to-One walks are great for all dogs. However, they particularly suit very young or old dogs who might require a slower pace. They're also great for reactive dogs. One-to-one walks can also be used to assess if your dog is suitable for group walks or as a stepping stone to get your dog onto group walks.
We walk all types of dogs and are used to pulling. We will work alongside you to find a solution to the pulling that makes the walks safe for both us and your dog.
Only with your permission and when we have built a bond with your dog. We first practice their recall on a long lead, when they are consistently recalling then we will let them off. Some one-to-one dogs never walk off lead and that is ok.
Please leave out all of the equipment you use to walk your dog (lead, harness, etc.), as well as, a towel so we can dry them off after their walks.
Once they have completed their vaccinations, we are able to take them out for a walk. We will start them on shorter walks and build it up with age. If they're not able to walk for half an hour, then we'll spend the rest of the time on enrichment playtime and fusses at home. There is no upper age limit, one of our Happy Waggers is 17 years old!
By 8pm on the day of the walk you will receive a service report via email. It contains an update, as well as, photos of your dog enjoying their walk.
Your walker will plan your dog's walk. Sometimes it will be from home and if your dog doesn't mind travelling then sometimes it will be in a different location.
Before the first walk we will come out and meet you and your dog. We have a team of five members of staff so we generally send the person who will be walking your dog the most. All the information we need is collected on our online booking system before the meet and greet and any additional notes are added after the meeting by the staff member. The rest of the team will check through the information in preparation for their first walk. Please note the meet and greet is charged at the same rate as a half hour one-to-one walk.
We try to keep dogs with the same member of staff but this is not always possible. One of the great advantages of having a team is that we can cover each others holidays and sick days. We work as a team 365 days a year so are always available. Don't worry, the dogs soon get used to us and we love talking about your dogs and the things we have found that make them tick.
All of the information we need about yourself and your dog is completed on our online booking system. This is also where you are able to request walks and view your walk schedule.
One-to-One walks runs all day. You can choose your preferred slot when you request a walk. However, if you want a more accurate time you will find a half hour pick up window in your schedule on your online portal. This is updated by 8pm the day before the walk.
When we leave your house or if we are taking your dog to a different location, it's when we leave the vehicle at the walk location. Our team have a combination of vans and cars which are kitted out with cages, separators and fastenings to secure the dogs whilst in transit.
We ask all of our customers to get us a key cut before the first walk. We are fully insured to carry our customer's keys and label them in a way that does not relate to your address.
You are welcome to cancel bookings but the payment for the bookings will be lost. Unfortunately we are unable to move bookings once they have been made. In both of these scenarios we will have turned away other customers to honour your booking. We ask all of our customers to check their diaries carefully before booking.
