AW Pet Care & Dog Walking, Laurencekirk
Dog walker and small pet carer, Laurencekirk
Welcome to this website and thank you for taking the time to look around. I'm Anne, owner of AW Pet Care & Dog Walking, I provide a dog walking and small pet care service covering Laurencekirk and the surrounding area. My aim is to provide a professional, reliable service and always work with integrity and good practice using force-free methods. I am an experienced and competent handler of a wide variety of breeds ranging from Toy Poodles to Irish Wolfhounds.
I am a very proud member of the Professional Dog Walkers Association (PDWA), The Pet Professional Guild British Isles, hold full business and transport insurances, Disclosure Scotland validated and Dog First Aider. All documents are available to inspect. I'm also currently working towards the Certificate in Canine Behaviour.
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.
About the service:
Whatever your requirements are, I will try my best to tailor a service to suit, so please don't hesitate to get in touch!
Your dog is collected from your home and either walked locally or taken for a short, safe drive in individual cages in the PAW Mobile to a designated dog walking area, either on or off the lead if requested, if safe to do so 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 will also get a quick rinse down before going home if they need it.
Each walk is structured and active, taking place 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 but also fun, interesting, varied and tiring!
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, ofcourse this is weather and other conditions permitting!
Our daily group walk schedule is subject to availability. The walks are divided into organised time slots so that there is actually the time to go for a proper walk to one of the walking areas.
Groups are kept small, usually 2/3 dogs but never more than 4 from separate households and comprise other dogs of similar capabilities.
Group walks are kept small for safety, control and fun.
Each dog must be well behaved, sociable with a good recall and will undergo an assessment with trial period to ensure that they will fit in well with the group.
A group walk doesn't suit every dog so I can also walk your dog on an individual basis.
One to one (solo or individual client) walks are also available if you prefer, nobody else's dog, just yours for very special attention!
Usually half hour or 1 hour walks but am also more than happy to do shorter or longer walks to suit.
Solo walks by prior appointment and are likely to be outwith mid day walking schedules.
Reactive dogs are walked on a solo basis and on the lead.
Bitches in season will not be walked, but home visits will be arranged.
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.
How does it work?
All services are strictly by appointment only. Initially I meet you at 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 before joining one of our group walks.
Once enrolled, if you need a regular slot you will be automatically scheduled in to the diary in advance or if you require an ad hoc service simply drop me an email, text or telephone to book your slot.
We are sorry but we are unable to fulfil last minute bookings, clients must register and provide minimum 48 hours booking notice. Other terms and conditions apply.
How much is it?
Prices are dependent on service:
Registration and advance booking essential. Terms apply. We accept payment by bank transfer, direct debit or debit/credit card.
Thanks for visiting, do not hesitate to get in touch if you would like any further information, have any questions or would like to arrange a meeting!
