Your dog(s) will go out for a 60 minute walk around the local area. Dog walks may include walking the coastal paths of Torbay, of which there are many, as well as Cockington Village. Some walks will be on lead, roadside walks to continue the hard work you have put in lead training your dog(s). However, it is also important that they enjoy a good playtime, with lots of games and running around off lead* when possible.
Most walks are on a 1-2-1 basis which are great for those dogs who are a little more reserved when making dog friends. There are limited group walks throughout the week for those dogs who like to see their friends, which are carefully organised to ensure each dog’s safety.
We all worry about what our dogs are up to when we aren’t around. So you will be kept up to date with their adventures with occasional photos and/or updates. You will be advised of how the walk went if you are around at the dropping home time. I completely understand how great and reassuring it is to see your dog(s) enjoying themselves.
Owners are asked to provide all leads, harnesses/ haltis/ muzzles that maybe required during the walk. However, it is not necessary for you to provide any tennis balls/toys, poo bags and seat belts.
Please note that there are very limited weekend spaces available on a first come first serve basis between 11am – 3pm on Saturday and 11.30am – 2pm on Sunday.
*Dogs will only be taken off the lead, with the owner’s expressed consent, and only where it is safe and legal. The Walker reserves the right to not walk any dog off the lead if it is safe to do so.
Legal requirements of dog walking
It’s a legal requirement for dogs to wear a collar with a correctly engraved tag attached when in public.
