Dog walkingDoes your dog suffer from separation anxiety?

  • Is your dog destructive whilst you’re not home?
  • Is your dog barking and disturbing the neighbours whilst your at work?
  • Have you a new puppy and are worried about leaving it at home all day on its own?
  • Does your dog try to escape from the garden?
  • Are you to tired or busy to walk your dog?
  • Do you work long hours?

If you have answered YES to one or more of these questions then hiring a dog walker is the way to go.

There are a lot of dogs who suffer behavioural problems due to being left in the back yard all day with no environmental enrichment. Why not let us take your dog out for a walk which will not only provide him with exercise but will stimulate his senses and in turn help ease any behavioural problems that may be occurring.

Our Charges are as follows:
Dog Walking – from $30 per session

Dog Walking – 5 days (1 session per day) $135

Dog Walking – 7 days (1 session per day) $180
