DHT offers a dog walking service to ensure that your pampered pooch gets exercised during the day while you are out at work, going out for the day or simply having a duvet day!
There is a choice of morning or afternoon walk. Your dog will be collected from your home and taken for a walk of at least one hour and this does not include travelling time. There will be a maximum of 6 dogs. Depending upon your location will depend where the walk will take place but it will either be a forest walk or a walk in a local woods or park area or in an enclosed exercise field. If your dog has a reliable recall they will be allowed off lead but written consent must be provided. All dogs must be friendly and sociable with other dogs and people both on and off the lead. If your dog is a ball chaser then I am happy to take the ball thrower out. Once suitably exercised your dog will be returned home, towelled off if necessary and fresh water will be given. I am happy to feed any dogs that require it or give them a stuffed kong to amuse them for a while longer.
Its a great opportunity for your dog to hang out with some friends, do a bit of exploring and run off some excess energy.
I believe it is a privilege to be asked to look after somebody’s dog and so the care and safety of your dog is of paramount importance. They must wear a collar with a name tag and will also have to wear a DHT dog walking name tag until they are returned home. They will be placed on a lead until in a safe area to be let off or remain on a lead or long line if required
All dogs must be microchipped, up to date with vaccinations, flea and worming treatment. Acceptance of your dog is subject to the DHT Dog Walking Terms and Conditions which must be signed by the owner.
