The wellbeing and safety of your dog whilst out on walks is always our first priority. This is the main reason why dog walks are usually in small group of 2 and 3 dogs. (or maximum 4), therefore making it easier to safely manage dogs. Smaller group walks also means that we are better able to provide more focused care and to attend to each dogs individual needs.
Dogs are only let of lead when they have shown to have very good recall responses and the customer has signed an ‘off-lead permission form’.
We provide basic recall training using a 10 meter retractable lead using treats and /or praise. When dogs are allowed of lead we continue with this recall practice so as to re-enforce these positive recall responses.
Some dogs may never be able to go off lead during our walks because it is not thought appropriate or safe to do so.
In this instance we keep dogs on the 10 meter retractable lead when in an open green space, where they are still able to freely walk ahead, run, play and generally let off lots of steam and have lots of fun whilst out with us!.
After each walk we will provide you with a text or email update to let you know how your dogs walk went, including info about timings, where we went and any other information we feel you aught to know.
The cycle powered dog trailer is a great environmentally friendly alternative mode of transport! It has been used to safely and efficiently transport dogs from their homes along the Bristol and bath cycle path to walking destinations close by such as St Georges park, Eastville park, Ridgeway fields and Vassals park.
The cycle powered trailer is currently out of use, but we are looking to upgrade and invest in a new bespoke dog tryke as the business grows. - Watch this space!
