Group Dog Walks

Duration - 1hr

£20 -22

Ideal if your pooch loves to explore and play in the company of others. Dogs are taken in small, friendly groups of no more than four, to one of our large local parks for a full hour of fun and frolics!

 

Dogs are transported safely in our vehicles to one of the many great walking spots we have locally. Whilst in our care dogs have one of our Simply the Pets ID tags attached to their collar or harness and our team carry pet first aid kits and water with them on walks.

 

Want your dog to enjoy some off lead time?

 

No problem...all we need is your written consent and for them to pass our own off lead assessment to check that your dogs recall is reliable, consistent and safe.

It's important we build a strong relationship with your dog(s), so for this reason we require a commitment of at least once a week.

Are Group Walks right for me?

At Simply the Pets it's really important that our Group Walks are safe, well-managed and most importantly fun!

This is why it's so important that dogs are suited to Group Walks. Group Walking doesn't suit every dog and at STP we take the "What the Dog Needs, not what we want" approach. This means that the we want to ensure dogs are happy and having the time of their life in our care, and if we find that your dog is not enjoying being part of a group we'll let you know!

 

To be a part of Group Walks dogs should:

  • Get on well with other dogs of varying breeds, ages and temperaments 

  • Walk well on a lead. We appreciate that dog's are likely to be excited when we reach the park, however we request that owners provide a well fitting 2-point harness, such as a Perfect Fit harness, for dogs that pull to aid control and prevent injury to dog and walker. Please note we will not use head collars, choke chains or slip leads.

  • Ideally be able to enjoy their walk off lead. We are happy to work with young dogs towards this goal and can use long lines for dogs who cannot be let off lead.

  • Not become overly-stimulated or over-aroused in the company of other dogs

  • Not be in season (females)

  • Unneutered males are welcome on our Group Walks, but will be subject to individual assessment

  • Travel well in a car

At STP we are always assessing the dynamics of our Group Walks and if there are any concerns regarding your dogs suitability we will discuss these with you and aim to come up with a mutually agreeable solution.
