Leaps n' Hounds - your reliable dog walker
As your dedicated dog walker, your family companion will join me on one of my daily walks around one of the many parks and open spaces in and around Whitstable for pure fun, exercise and company to break up their day, ensuring you come home to a relaxed and contented dog. All our walks are a minimum of 40 minutes which start from when we reach the open space or area that we are exploring that day. This means that your dog may be out and about for at least an hour.
We welcome any breed over the age of 6 months (for younger dogs please see our puppy sitting service below) , so long as your dog is fully vaccinated, is happy and comfortable with people and has the basic training .
We are happy to walk your dog off the lead if you prefer so long as we have your written consent to do so, have tested their recall and have built up a good bond with them beforehand.
We may walk dogs with other dogs (no more than 3 at a time) as we know that they often love to play and socialise. Our initial relationship building allows us to assess which dogs will mix well and become potential play buddies. We also consider age, energy levels and size as some little ones can find larger doggy breeds a little intimidating. As mentioned previously, the animals’ welfare, happiness and safety will always be our priority.
We understand that some dogs are not suited to group dog walks and we are therefore able to offer individual dog walks on request.
