Group Sit

We provide a social and friendly dog walking service

Our group dog walking sessions are the best way to socialise your beloved pooch with plenty of exercise and great company. We believe that a group of friendly pooches is the greatest way of exercising any dog when possible. If your dog doesn’t receive contact with other animals regularly they can become depressed or upset, much like we do. The more dogs we have in one session means more fun, with a maximum of six dogs at any one time.

Walking in secure fields or woodland areas all our group dog walks last a minimum of one hour in length as standard but more often than not they last much longer if everyone is having fun. Upon returning your dog home we will rub and wash down as needed; because we walk regardless of weather conditions your dogs may get slightly muddy but will always freshened up prior to entering your home. We then settle them down and say goodbye, lock up and luck forward to next time.

My dog doesn’t recall, can they still join in?

If your dog doesn’t recall don’t worry, we love a challenge and aim to train your dog to recall whilst participating in our walking services. We use a long training line for any dog which doesn’t initially have a good recall. This allows us to train your dog whilst keeping them within a safe distance.
