Dog Walking in National Forest

We provide a Dog Walking service to exercise your dog when you are unable to.

Do you work long hours? Sometimes away all day? Does your dog show signs of stress and boredom? Maybe you can’t walk your dog due to health reasons?

Exercise is important to your dog

The Kennel Club recommends that a dog be walked for at least 30 to 40 minutes a day. We will come to your house and chat with you about your dog’s needs to ensure your dog has a walk suitable to his ability.  Your dog may be more comfortable in an area they know, or happy to explore new places, we always ensure we offer the best possible walk for your dog.

In theory, anyone can be a dog walker. But are you going to entrust your canine family member to just anyone?

Animals at Home (National Forest) Ltd are City & Guilds qualified in dog walking and follow the Professional Dog Walkers Guidelines approved by the RSPCA, Dogs Trust and Pet Industry Federation.

These guidelines include:

  • Meeting your dog before walking to assess their behaviour, personality and care.
  • Discuss and agree with you the individual needs of your dog and instructions that need to be followed.
  • Understand any medical issues or physical restrictions your dog may have.
  • Plan your dog’s walk taking into consideration age, health, behaviour and fitness.
  • If required, transport your dog in safety and comfort in our Defra approved animal van.
  • Exercise your dog in a safe and appropriate way to provide interest and stimulation.
  • Your dog will be walked on the lead unless you have provided prior written permission and your dog’s reliable recall has been assessed.

In addition, we are:

  • Fully insured for the care and custody of your dog and public liability insurance
  • Have enhanced DBS disclosure
  • Vet trained in animal First Aid
  • Members of the Derbyshire County Council Trusted Trader Scheme
  • Have been recently awarded ‘Best Pet Care Provider East Staffordshire & South Derbyshire’ by SME News Midlands Enterprise Awards 2020.

Remember, not all dog walkers are the same.
