One of the best things in life is having a healthy, happy dog but sometimes our lifestyles are unable to provide what your “best friend” needs. The stimulation achieved from walking and exercising your dog provides much more benefit than outside space alone can, so if, for whatever reason you cannot afford the time because of work or other commitments may have, we can step in and walk your dog for you.
Cheshire Dog Services will collect your dog in our fully ventilated vehicle, which has individual cages for your dog’s safety. Following a good walk, we will return your dog back to your home, happy, socialised and tired.
If you have ever seen any of the TV shows relating to dog behaviour, you will know that walking is so essential to your dog’s wellbeing. They need both mental and physical stimulation and lack of these stimuli can often result in behavioural problems such as barking, chewing or just general nuisance behaviour, which is not what you want from your dog.
During our daily walks your dog can do what dogs want to do, they will get the chance to have a really good run around whilst socialising with us and the other dogs. The locations/routes taken are varied so that the walks always remain interesting. Walking your dog in a pack could therefore provide a good proportion of the social interaction and physical exercise your dog requires to have a well-balanced disposition. We can walk either on the lead or simply allow them to run free; it depends on what your dog needs & what you instruct us to do. Your dog should then return home happy, tired and just about ready for a good rest!
Prior to your dog’s first walk, we will come and meet him /her to get to know the character whilst at the same time allowing you to ask any questions you may have. All dogs will undergo a free assessment prior to joining Cheshire Dog Services. This places you under no obligation, just the opportunity to meet us before you make any decisions.
If you wish to go ahead with our walking service, your dog may then be walked on a one to one basis for the first few walks, just so we can get to know your dog a little better and gauge how your dog reacts in different situations. We will then suggest that your dog would be suited to one of the following.
Walking in a “pack” with dogs of a similar temperament or breed, which will help to socialise & stimulate your dog. We walk no more than five dogs at once but prefer a maximum of four smaller breed or three larger breed dogs as we feel this is the number that allows us to give them the attention they need and for their safety and confidence too.
Recommend for ‘1 to 1 walks‘. Any issues that arise will be discussed with you in detail.
We recognise that all dogs are different and have individual needs, so our descriptions are used as a guide only.
We can personalise any of our services to suit your (or your dog’s) requirements so if you don’t find exactly what you are looking for or have any questions, CONTACT US and we will do our very best to meet your needs.
We are able to offer special rates if you would like us to look after additional dogs from the same household and weekly bookings.
