Dog Walking

We provide a competent, trustworthy and reliable Dog Walking Service in and around Chesterfield.

“Why have a dog and not walk it yourself?”

This is one of the most common questions I get asked when I tell people my profession. The answer is simple. Exercising your dog every single day for as long as it needs whilst trying to fit everything else into our busy lives can become tricky and even sometimes a chore. And it is only one aspect of owning a dog. Important as it is with us on board you could enjoy a more settled dog at home to spend quality time with without feeling guilty about putting other things before walking.

Mostly this service is greatly appreciated by our clients who work long hours and require some respite for their dogs when left at home all day. But this is not the only reason for employing a dog walker……

  • Are you elderly or recovering from an injury or illness and struggling to give your dog the exercise he needs?
  • After work are you busy juggling after school clubs and struggling for time to get out with your dog?
  • Are you having trouble socialising your dog?
  • It is a common fact that exercise is linked to many behavioural issues and not just the obvious ones such as destruction and nuisance barking. It can also be linked to many anxieties, unnecessary fears and even aggression.

Whether its due to work commitments or any other reason don’t let your dog suffer. We are here to help!

Our team of experienced dog owners would love to meet your companion and take them for a great walk on your behalf. We offer half hour walks, one hour walks, individual and social walks. We generally walk between 9am and 5pm Monday – Friday but if you require our services outside these times then please ask and we will do our best to accommodate. 

1 hour walk is £12     (multiple dogs accepted but price may vary slightly)

30 min walk is £8

We also offer puppy/elderly dog visits and let-outs. If this is what you require please contact us

If your dog has behavioural issues surrounding walking then we may still be able to help you.

Our behaviourist would initially come out to assess and then begin walking your dog until we have ironed out any issues. Then our experienced dog walkers would take over. The initial assessment is £40 then our behaviourist would continue to walk your dog and begin work on the issues at a lower rate of £20 per walk. Once happy with your dogs progress walks could be continued at the normal rate by a member of our team. If you would like to be more involved in this process then please view our Dog Training pages
