Welcome to our office…
Our dog walks take in the beautiful Chiltern views. With Owner’s consent, dogs can run off lead in fields like this. Surrounded by more fields, this is a great place for our walks, away from traffic.
Our dog-walking service is offered to Flackwell Heath and surrounding areas (Bourne End, Loudwater, Wooburn Green, Cookham, Little Marlow & Beaconsfield) with a pick-up and drop-off service included in the price.
If your area isn’t listed, just drop us a line and we may be able to help or recommend someone closer to you!
Our walking groups are based around dogs which have been socialised and which we feel comfortable will settle well into the group.
Benefits of group Walks
There are so many benefits to your dog joining one of our group walks. While we are an obvious choice for when you can’t be there take your dog out during the day, regular group walks can also help your pup to get more exercise and gain confidence.
(Of course, you can just use us when it rains!)
On our group walks, puppies benefit from gaining confidence around older dogs, learning the etiquette of socialising, playing and meeting new dogs.
Older dogs benefit from free running and extended exercise. Even if you walk your dog every day it’s great for them to become familiar with another trusted Walker, in case you ever need cover in an emergency. It also helps with sociability as they join a small pack and feel comfortable in the company of other dogs.
If your own dog walks are really just toilet breaks or the duration of the school run, let us take on the leg work and get your dog moving about more. Dogs that get out for extended periods are happier, less anxious and it can help to foster better behaviour at home.
Rob is the main dog walker. He has plenty of experience walking dogs and keeping them safe while in his care. When the dogs see Rob, they know they’re going out for fun and they learn to respond to him and stay close to the group.
We walk dogs in areas that we consider to be safe and which are away from traffic and too many members of the general public. Dogs are kept on lead until we know it’s safe to let them off and we are vigilant about our surroundings before dogs are let off lead.
Rob is canine first aid and CPR trained, so always prepared in case of an emergency in the field…as it were!
We like to meet you and your dog for a short walk, to make sure your pup is comfortable with us and to observe them and their behaviours whilst out. We will ask questions about their likes, dislikes and any challenging behaviours we need to know about.
Going on a walk together, allows you get to know Rob while he gets to know your dog. We think it’s important to know who your dog is being entrusted to and feel comfortable giving us access to your home (if required).
It’s as simple as that. If everyone’s happy, we ask you to provide us with some basic information on a short form just in case of emergencies, and we’re good to go.
We offer two options for walks.
You can book in advance to ensure we have space on specific days / times, or if you only need occasional eWoof back-up, contact us up to the night before to see if we can fit you in.
We walk in small groups, no greater then 5 dogs and usually less. We will plan our walks according to the types of dogs being walked on that day and if necessary put in an extra walk if some dogs just can’t be socialised together.
The group has to be comfortable together and enjoy the walk. We believe in mixing different sizes and breeds as it helps with overall socialisation and allows dogs to learn to be around all types without fear or nervousness. We ensure the big dogs play safely and that the little dogs are safe, and we sometimes limit the small dogs to lead walks part of the way while the bigger dogs get a good run out, purely because of their different activity levels.
Age and health are also taken into consideration to ensure walks are safe all round.
We walk in most weather conditions – sun, rain, snow, wind….
We expect to walk your dog if we can safely get to you for collection and we consider it safe to walk your dog. Under these circumstances, if you then decide you don’t want your dog walked, fees are still payable.
Where the weather poses a danger to us or your dog, for example significant snowfall or high temperatures there is no charge.
This is every dog walkers worst nightmare and it can happen to anyone.
It helps if you inform us about the likelihood of your dog running off for whatever reason, especially if they have prior history. And, we know of course that some breeds naturally have a high prey drive so are also a flight risk. If this is the case with your dog, we would recommend lead walks unless you give us express consent that they are allowed off lead.
If a dog does run away, we have an emergency protocol whereby we stay local for a period of time to give the dog a chance to return. At the same time we post to our local dog professional community to rally and keep an eye out. We will notify you within the hour if your dog has not returned and we will also submit the dog’s details to DogLost which is a nationwide group that advertises lost dogs and promotes the incident via social media.
