SPECIALISED VISITS & ONE TO ONE
HOW WE CAN HELP:
We aim to tailor our facilities to you and your dog's needs, recognising that each dog is unique. Dog's recovering from injury, older dogs or dog's that perhaps find general walks stressful may need care for example if their dog guardian has an appointment or engagement. This is where we can help, utilising our training skills and develop a specific pet visit or package.
Therefore, we offer a limited range of specialised care for your pet. We are always happy to work around you and your dog's specific needs. As with all new clients and dogs, we ask to visit you and your pet's at home, to give all of us an opportunity to meet and discuss what is best for your pet.
Special arrangements can be made upon request for dogs who need a carer to remain within the dogs home, or have specific behavioural/physical needs for an additional surcharge. Please contact us for details via the Contact page.
All of our interactions are friendly and gentle, we believe in reward-based training and will follow any specific requirements left by you in regards to the handling of your dog. We happily and lovingly research every breed that we work with, to better know your dog for individual understanding.

We offer bespoke and solo walks/training walks- (1-2-1 dog care, unless 2 dogs are carefully matched) Calm gentle walk focussed on enrichment or combination of walk and visit. Solo walks suit dogs that are perhaps anxious, are sensitive to triggers/stimuli or have ongoing health concerns.

We will tailor a special walk or care plan with you, easing your mind that your pet is cared for during work hours or at times you may need to leave your dog for an appointment for example.
During our time with your dog companion we will use scentwork, brain games, puzzles and training for enrichment that are also fun activities. Your dog's well being and working below their threshold, reducing stress is what our walks/visits will help.
