When your pet cant be with you either at home or away I personally feel having their Dog walker dog Sitting with them in the dogs own home is the best possible option. It also provides the benefit of added security for your home and care for other pets and plants. Home visits are available for cats and other small animals even in the absence of dogs. Home sitting is also available in the absence of any pets.
I'm proud to say Barks In The Parks has maintained our "Three Best Rated" website Best Manchester Dog Walker Award for another year.
Finding a good dog walker, dog sitter or dog boarder
1) Do you have a trusted family member friend or neighbour with a good dog walker or dog sitter? Ask for their recommendation.
2) Check the internet check out local dog walker reviews on multiple platforms and if you find one you are considering ask to speak to some of their customers, if they are genuine reviews they will try and accommodate this.
3) Talk to professional dog walkers when you’re out and about, you may choose not to employ them but they see other dog walkers working on a regular basis and are a valuable resource.
4) If you have the opportunity when you’re out with your dog study the local walkers find out
a) Who's walking too many dogs, typically dog walkers are insured for 6 dog group walks. Some insurers don’t specify number but ask yourself if you want you’re dog walking with more? Unfortunately there are some walker who will try and walk very many more together
b) Who's leaving dogs in vehicles while they are walking other dogs.
c) Check with the council licensing department that your potential dog boarder is licensed, check your dog walker has public liability insurance.
5) It is advantageous for both you and you’re dog walker to be local to each other, it aids flexibility and reliability and they will be known among you’re community.
6) Consider the vehicle the dog walker uses and how you’re pet will be transported. Do you or they prefer to be in a vehicle with windows or are you happy for them to be transported in a windowless van. Consider also how they will be transported within the vehicle and whether you wish to provide
harnesses for them to be clipped into the vehicle with.
Barks In The Parks mission is to forge lifetime relationships with you and your pets
Owners typically have once or twice daily 1 hour Dog Walks for their dogs. Dog Walks are enjoyed in a variety of locations and can be tailored to the age health fitness and type of dog. Ball and Frisbee play can be included where appropriate. Dog Walks are for a minimum of an hour and transportation time is not part of their walk time. Dogs will never be walked in overly large numbers and each will get individual attention.
