Once we're away from any roads they're all let off the lead to run and play. I do a bit of basic recall training on the whistle when they first start to get them used to coming back to me, but nothing too intense. Then after that they're just out there having fun!
As well as the exercise, just as important is the social aspect of the walks. Many behavioural problems can be attributed to a lack of social interaction with other dogs. So meeting up and playing with other dogs will do them the world of good.
Be fit & active.
They’ll have to be able to keep up with all the other dogs, and enjoy long walks.
Be friendly with other dogs.
There's a maximum of six dogs on each walk so your dog must be sociable and enjoy other dogs company.
Have basic recall skills.
They don’t have to be gun dog trained but they’ll be off lead for most of the time, so they've got to know their own name.
Like all types of weather.
The only time we don't go out is when it’s thunder and lightning, or really hot (not much chance of that!) So your dog must be ok with a bit of rain, snow or the freezing cold.
“Milly loves going out on her walks with Ian and her new friends. She's always tired when I get home, and I can see why when I watch some of the videos posted up on the Facebook page! I Highly recommend the service.”
“My Bo looks forward to his walks with Ian and the other dogs every week day. He's always waiting by the gate come rain or shine! Great service, which I've been using now for over 3 years.”
“Izzy loves her days out with the other dogs, and always comes back worn out! I have no hesitation in recommending PAWxPAW.”
“My dog Jumbles adores Ian and really looks forward to his walks. He is always very happy and relaxed when I come home.”
“Bumpy loves his daily walks with Ian and the others. A great service, which helps us out no end.”
That's about it. If you'd like to book your dog in for some of the best fun they'll have on a weekday give me a call on 07798 727111 or fill out the form above.
I provide fresh water for the dogs at the end of each walk and towel them dry (if necessary) before returning them, so they don't mess up your home. I can also feed them for you when I drop them back and send you a quick text to tell you they are home safe if requested.
Subject to availability, you can book your dog in for just a day or a whole week, it's up to you and you're free to cancel at anytime. Please give me a few days notice though so I can arrange to have your dogs place filled.
