If the demands of your busy lifestyle mean you can’t walk your dog as often as you would like, then Furry Friends can help. We offer a professional and reliable dog walking service to give you the peace of mind that your dog is still getting plenty of exercise and mental stimulation.
We make the walks as fun as possible taking them around parks, woodland and countryside with plenty of places to run and play in a safe environment. Your dog is then returned home happy and contented and we will provide them with fresh water and give their muddy paws a clean.
To begin with, all dogs are kept on the lead until recall skills have been established. We always use positive reinforcement methods – strongly praising and rewarding positive behaviour to discourage unwanted behaviour. Treats and toys are our most crucial pieces of work equipment!.
Group or individual Walks
Group walks give your dog the opportunity to play with other dogs and can help to build your dog’s social skills. We generally walk no more than 3 or 4 sociable dogs at a time but, if you would prefer, we can arrange to take your dog on an individual walk.
We pride ourselves on our flexibility, whether you need us to give your dog regular walks or just occasionally, our services are personalised to meet your individual needs and we understand that you may need to book or cancel at the last minute, so as long as you let us know of any cancellations before 12pm the day prior, there is no cancellation fee.
Free, No Obligation Meeting
Before any dog walking is carried out, we would like to arrange a meeting so that you can introduce us to your dog and we can discuss their likes, dislikes and any special requirements. We will also require your written consent should you want your dog to have some off-lead exercise. This meeting can be arranged at any time to suit you and is totally free of charge.
Emily Carrie – Lucus
Sam is so helpful and often has Lucus at short notice, even if asked on the day! He is always excited to see her and it’s so good to know that he gets nice long walks and is made a fuss of when I’m not around. A big thank you to Sam…. I don’t know what I’d do without her help!
Paul Murray – Megan, Martha & Chumba
I am so impressed at the way in which Sam has been looking after our 3 dogs. Working the hours that I do and loving the dogs so much I am obviously concerned that they are being looked after when I am at work. Knowing that Sam is with them takes these worries away completely.
I know when I have been at home how excited they are when they see Sam and how happily they jump into her car and return contented after their walk. Sam certainly treats the dogs as if they were her own and I cannot praise highly enough her work ethic and professionalism.
I would not hesitate to recommend Sam to anyone who needs their pets looking after whilst they are working or for any other reason.
Charlotte Moore – Suzie
Sam undoubtedly has a passion for animals and this is clear when I see her with Suzie who took to her immediately. Suzie always comes back from her walks happy and tired like she’s had the adventure of a lifetime! This gives me great peace of mind; I know that she is being well looked after while I’m out at work. Everyone should have a dog walker like Sam.
Alex Ward – Maya & Ted
Sam is extremely reliable and our dogs, Maya and Ted absolutely love her! It’s so reassuring to know that the person looking after your dogs genuinely cares about them. I would highly recommend Sam to anyone who is considering hiring a dog walker.
