Dog Walking

Sometimes, for whatever reason, you may not find you have the time yourself to give your dog the exercise and walks they enjoy and need to stay healthy. Your local dog walking and pet care service A Dog's Best Friend can  help by providing a reliable, flexible dog walking service for your pet.


Dog walking is the most popular service at A Dog’s Best Friend. We attempt to provide a flexible service by offering the choice of individual and group walks at a time to suit you and your dog. There is no extra charge for your dog being walked ‘out of hours’ (Out of hours doesn’t really exist at A Dog’s Best friend).

Your dog will be collected from your home in the agreed timeslot. If they are part of a group walk they will be transported to the walk location. Group numbers are kept to no more than six, usually including our own dogs. The Van is equipped with crates to ensure segregation if neccesary.  Even the friendliest of dogs can get anxious in a confined space with other dogs they only see every so often. Individual walks will begin from your home.

We save each and every dogs details into our phone. Including their address, owners contact details and their vetinary details incase of emergency. We have never had to take a dog in my care to a vets (touch wood) but should we ever need to, we are fully prepared with all of the details that we need. We are  Pet First Aid trained in case of emergency, and will gain consent at our initial consultation to administer this.

We provide you, with a daily or weekly update of your pets week depending on which option you prefer. We are sure you will be eager to know if your beloved dog is having a great time.

We update the Facebook page daily with picture from our walks so please do follow the page on there.
