We now offer our dog walking and pet care services in Solihull and the surrounding areas. Solihull has some lovely field walks for dogs, away from traffic and lots of other animals. We use lots of local spaces including the Monkspath Park and Wychwood Reserve for dog walking.
Heidi Walker manages our Solihull dog walking service. Heidi has always had a love for animals all shapes and size. Her passion for all things living led her to study Zoology at Liverpool John Moores University achieving a high 2.1 degree. She has experience caring for all kinds of creatures ranging from Madagascan hissing cockroaches and Giant African Land Snails to Eurasian Beavers and Striped Skunks. As well as this she has 15 years' experience with dogs of all sizes, at the moment she has a Staffordshire bull terrier cross and a very large Romanian Shepard cross (cross with a horse maybe!)
Heidi and her team like to get to know your dog before agreeing to take them out on a walk. Before we take your dog out we offer a free consultation where we will take full details from you so we know what your dog likes and dislikes, if they have any medical conditions and how to keep them happy.
We will keep you updated on Twitter and Facebook and via Whatsapp so you can see your dog is happy in our care.
We will only walk a maximum of 4 dogs at any one time, any more than that and we cannot give your pet the attention they need. We also try to ensure we walk dogs of a similar energy level and temperament together, we know how intimated some smaller dogs can be by larger boisterous dogs and we take that into consideration.
Dog walking can be for 30 or 60 minutes, using local fields, parks and woods so your dog can have a good run, burn off some energy and stimulate their senses.
We only walk dogs off leads with your permission and only once we feel we have built a bond with them. Your pet's safety is our primary concern.
Solo dog walks
We offer one to one walks, these are usually for more nervous dogs, dogs recovering from injury or elderly dogs who just want to stretch their legs, sniff some grass and have some fresh air and a gentle wander. Solo walks are available before 10.30am or after 2.30pm.
We all know they are cute and adorable but require a lot of love and attention. While you're at work we will visit your new puppy to ensure they can maintain their routine. We can let them out in the garden to they can go to the toilet, we will clear up any accidents and change bedding if necessary, most importantly we can give them some playtime and love so they don't miss you too much.
If your dog is old or recovering from an illness and you don't feel they want to walk far but would still like some company we will go in and visit them, give them a treat, administer any medication and check they have access to go to the toilet and a potter around the garden or the block.
We can sit with them, play with them and give them fuss and attention.
This service is not appropriate if you are going on holiday, dogs need company so we do not offer dog visits as an alternative to home boarding.
We know that cats do not like change, they like their creature comforts and a routine and surroundings they feel comfortable in. Cats can become distressed in catteries because of this, we offer an alternative to give you peace of mind and keep your cat purring whilst you are working or away.
We will discuss your cats individual needs with you but can visit up to 3 times a day, feed them, let them in, let them out, change their litter tray, ensure they have fresh water and give them some love and attention. We can also set automatic feeders up to cover one of their daily feeds.
We can also pick up your post, draw the curtains and make sure your house is secure whilst you are away.
pet care FOR SMALL ANIMALS
Our small animal visit service means your pets surroundings remain the same eliminating stress for them, it also means they avoid any illness by moving them to a strange environment.
We can also look after pets on your small holding allowing you to go on holiday and not worry about your animals. We can visit your small animals once or twice a day, we will feed them, stroke them, change their water and clean them out.
We can let them out to play (if appropriate) we will tailor the service to your individual pets needs and your requirements.
If needed we can also pick up your post, water your plants, close and open the curtains and ensure your home is more secure.
Our trained teams can transport your pet in our custom modified vehicles, your pet will be safe in your usual carry box, they will have a comfy bed and plenty of room to sleep as well as access to fresh water and food or treats (if allowed)
