Happy Hounds Bristol is a friendly, professional and reliable dog walking service based in Horfield, Bristol, offering group and individual walks for your dog.
I have been a dog walker in Bristol since 2014 and love what I do. I walk in Bristol’s green spaces, where your dog can run and walk in the safety of the parks away from roads.
Your dog can let off steam, play and socialise with the group whilst you continue your working day. Whether you work long hours or just need some occasional help, can’t get out of the house or have a dog or puppy that gets lonely, Happy Hounds gives your dogs the regular exercise, stimulation and company they need.
Dogs can be walked on or off the lead at your request. Dogs are not let off the lead without your full approval.
During a free initial no-obligation meeting, we can discuss the needs of both you and your dog, so I am able to fit in with your schedule and offer you a bespoke service designed to meet your dog’s needs.
During an introductory period dogs are kept on the lead until familiar with me and socialised with other dogs in the group. Throughout this period I assess how your dog responds to people, other dogs, bicycles and anything unexpected.
Your dog and home are in safe hands. I’m a qualified canine first aider, have full dog walking and pet sitting insurance and hold a current DBS/CRB certificate.
I offer individual walks if you require one to one attention for your dog, your dog isn’t well socialised or doesn’t have good recall. For young puppies, elderly dogs and dogs who prefer not to mix with other dogs, individual walks are recommended. All dogs must fully vaccinated and up to date with flea and worm treatments.
In wet weather or after a swim your dog will be given a towel dry on returning home. Fresh drinking water is available for your dog on walks and in the van during hot weather.
