Service for Dogs
Having a dog in your life is a wonderful thing. If you already have one, you know exactly what I mean. What better way to counteract the stresses, strains and speed of modern life than to take time out with your best friend? It is well documented that just stroking a dog can lower blood pressure and that walking in the fresh air is the simplest, cheapest and often most effective form of exercise. But combining dog ownership with the stresses, strains and speed of modern life can pose a problem in itself.
This is where I can help:
If your dog is happy to be left for a few hours while you are out, then a walk in company could be just the thing to keep them fit, well and entertained. I collect your dog from your home and take them to one of the beautiful areas around Tunbridge Wells for an hour's walk. Traveling time is not included, so if we're collecting other friends along the way, your dog could be out of the house for over two hours, watching the world go by from the car, as well as running around in the fresh air. I am insured to walk up to six dogs in a group, but typically walk four at a time, taking into consideration how different personalities combine. Some enjoy plenty of running and playing, others prefer a quieter, trot and sniff style of outing. I will return your dog happy and tired, at least towelled down and, if possible at your house, rinsed off too.
Dog Day Care
If your working day is longer, or perhaps you have a family commitment that takes you away from home for a full day, day care could be the answer. Typically day care runs from 7.30 am to 7.00 pm, usually you would drop off at my house although collection can be arranged for a small additional fee. Any food needed during day care hours should be brought with them, but treats for fabulous behaviour are always to hand! Your dog will have at least one hour's walk and then relaxation time, which is usually gladly embraced!
This is where you get your well deserved holiday (or perhaps you need to be away from home for a few days for work – not so much fun). Your dog can come and stay with us and join in as part of the family, with their own bed, crate or whatever accommodation they are accustomed to (although I do draw the line at having furry friends sleeping upstairs or on the bed!). You would also provide any food and medication they might need during their stay. A trial stay is usually a good idea, for your peace of mind as much as for their familiarisation.
