All dogs love lots of walks and they will never turn down an extra dog walk or two. Sometimes as Pet Owners we can be limited on time and need a helping hand.

It can be good to have a Dog Walker on hand for those times that maybe you are working late, travelling away, going out with friends or even feeling under the weather.

You can opt for a private dog walk or a group dog walk, and we discussed the Pros and Cons of Group Versus Solo Walks in our recent article.
