Dog walker Laurencekirk
Thank you for taking the time to look around. I'm Anne, owner of AW Pet Care & Dog Walking, I provide a personal dog walking and small pet care service covering Laurencekirk and the surrounding area. My aim is to provide a professional, reliable service to ensure that you have peace of mind that your dog is being taken care of in the best possible while you are out or away. I am a competent dog walker with experience of a wide variety of breeds ranging from Toy Poodles to Irish Wolfhounds.
I am a very proud founder member of the Professional Dog Walkers Association (PDWA), member of The Pet Professional Guild British Isles, hold business and transport insurances, Disclosure Scotland validated, Dog First Aider and hold Certificates of qualifications in Dog Walking, Canine Behaviour and Animal Care. All documents are available to inspect.
My dog walking, home visit and small pet care service is based in and around the Laurencekirk area, covering Marykirk, Fettercairn, Auchenblae and all the areas in between.
The benefits of using a dog walker:
About this service:
Your dog is collected from your home and either walked locally or taken for a short, safe drive in individual crates in the PAW Mobile to a designated dog walking area, either on or off the lead if safe to do so, if I have your permission and if he/she has a good recall. The walks last for the agreed duration then returned home for a good dry (if needed), well earnt drink, a treat or two and probably a nap until you return! The van even carries a portable shower so any Mud Magnets can also get a quick rinse down before going home if they need it.
Each walk is fun, interesting, structured and active, taking place either in your local area, nearby forest, park or beach. Each designated walk area is risk assessed to cater for your dog’s specific needs, making our walks appropriate and safe for all.
Walking areas include, but not limited to: Denlethen Woods, Drumtochty South / Finella Hill, Drumtochty North, St Cyrus Beach and local parks. I try to fit in as many locations as possible in a week, even venturing further afield occasionally; ofcourse time, weather and other conditions permitting!
Individual Dog Walks (also called one to one or solo dog walks)
My walks are usually individual dog walks, or same household if you have a more than one - nobody else's dog, just yours for very special attention! Our walks are fun, I incorporate enrichment activities and also can practice homework such as recall and loose lead walking just to help keep those good manners topped up.
Reactive dogs are walked on an individual basis as above and on the lead.
Groups are kept small, usually 2/3 dogs but never more than 4 at any one time and comprise dogs of similar capabilities, fitness level and size.
Group walks are kept small for safety, control and fun. Smaller groups allow the dogs to socialise whilst allowing me to keep a very close eye on them all.
Each dog must be well behaved, sociable and have a good recall. Your dog will undergo an assessment with one or more intial, individual walk/s followed by a trial, introductory period to ensure that they fit in well with the group.
Further details will be clarified at our initial meet.
A group walk doesn't suit every dog so I can also walk your dog on an individual basis as above.
Females in season will not be walked, home visits will be arranged instead.
Home visit service:
Ideal for puppies, elderly dogs who might not need quite as much exercise as they once did, cats and other small furries while you are away. I call in, check on them, let them outside to toilet, give oral medication, feed, replace bedding / litter etc.. and ofcourse, play with them.
Pet taxi service:
I can even take your pet to the vet or grooming studio during the daytime while you work and either wait or call back later to bring them home as well as delivery / collection to your local kennel or cattery.
Whatever your requirements are, I will try my best to tailor a service to suit, so please don't hesitate to get in touch!
How does it work?
All services are strictly by appointment only. Initially I meet you and your dog in the relaxed comfort of your home where we discuss your requirements, tailor a service to suit and complete the registration paperwork. Enrolment is totally free of charge!
All dogs are individually assessed and walked on a trial basis by themselves before joining a group.
Once enrolled, regular sessions will be automatically scheduled in to the diary in advance. Ad hoc service is subject to availability at the time.
We are sorry but we are unable to fulfil ad hoc, last minute bookings, clients must register and provide minimum 48 hours booking notice. Other terms and conditions apply.
How much is it?
Prices vary depending on what service is best for your dog:
Registration and advance booking essential. Terms apply. We accept payment by bank transfer, direct debit or debit/credit card.
