Dog walking is available in slots of half an hour or one hour, please note that the full amount of time is dedicated to walking, the time spent collecting/ dropping off and cleaning is not charged for – we will happily give the dogs a wipe down with a towel when they get mucky or have even had a swim! In the areas which we cover we are lucky enough to have some wonderful countryside to explore, where possible we will endeavour to vary the walks so that the dogs get plenty of stimulation and therefore exercise!
We can walk dogs on a one to one basis or in a group depending on what you’d prefer and what suits the dog best. One to Ones are ideal for dogs who prefer more attention or are not comfortable around other dogs. Group walks are great fun and are ideal for confident dogs with good recall and lots of energy to burn! We walk groups up to a maximum of 6 dogs but unlike most walkers there are two of us running the groups. We feel that this gives the best of both worlds, the dogs can play in a well matched group but we are still capable of managing the dogs and making sure that none of them miss out. It also has the benefit that we can gather them all up on leads much faster when the need arises creating a secure and safe environment for all.
Towels, poop bags and treats (if permitted), etc. will be provided by Scallywags to prevent wear and tear on your belongings however collars, complete with ID tags, leads and walking harnesses if required must be provided by the owner.
Wherever possible dogs will be exercised off the lead where written permission from the owner is granted and when we are in agreement that it is safe to do so. When returned to your home your dogs will be cleaned and dried with a towel and left clean (as clean as possible anyway!) and happy to sleep off their adventure.
The options are as follows:
- One to One walks: If you prefer your dog(s) to be walked separately then this option is for you. Your dog will get our whole attention and our time together can be spent exploring or playing their favourite game of fetch, whatever they like to do best! The one-to-one walks are available in half an hour or one hour slots.
- Group Walks: These are fantastic ways to get the most out their walk, playing and socialising with a carefully selected group of four legged friends! We will create friendship groups to match personalities and energy levels together, there is nothing better than seeing a group of dogs playing together and running free! Group walks are available in one hour slots only.
- Puppy Socialising Walks: Do you have a young puppy that needs a visit during the day and would enjoy and benefit from a short walk? This is ideal to get them out and about to see the world and all its noises, sights and smells without over facing them.
- OAP Walks: Perhaps you have an elderly dog who would enjoy a leisurely stroll to get some fresh air and some gentle exercise, we can take them for however long they can manage and if that’s not too far then the remainder of their time (e.g. half an hour) can be spent just getting some attention and cuddles! If they just want to be let in the garden and have a cuddle, then that’s fine too! We can also administer any medicines required at no extra charge.
If you have a holiday planned and are concerned about who will look after your pet, please contact us to discuss options!
The options include a visiting service where we can visit your pets in their home environment each day, however many times you like and for however long you wish. As part of this service we can feed, water and give your pet plenty of attention. For no extra cost we can open and close curtains, turn lights on and off, remove post from the doorway, etc. to offer a certain degree of security. We can also water house plants and garden plants in that rare warm weather although if you have a large garden there may be a small additional fee. So whether you have cats, rabbits, or a variety of pets then this option could be good for you. Please note that this option is only available for dogs if they are not left alone overnight.
