Crawley Dog Walkers - Winter Vs Summer

Hello Friends & Pet Parents, Winter is fast approaching and with that comes the colder temperatures, rain, sleet, snow and the worst of them all... WIND! Having had the joys of dog walking professionally in both the summer months and the winter I thought I would talk about the differences between the 2 seasons and what is important to remember to help your dog walker (and your dogs!). I suppose the most important element of this season change is the temperature. During the summer we had

CRAWLEY DOG WALKERS - PUPPY OWNERSHIP, THE UPS AND DOWNS!

Hello Friends & Pet Parents, Its Becky here with today's blog! This is my first blog entry so go easy on me. Today I wanted to talk about what I have found to be the ups and downs of puppy ownership.

CRAWLEY DOG WALKERS - A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A DOG WALKER 🐾

Hello Friends & Pet Parents, Today I thought I would give you all an insight into my normal day to day routine which will give you an idea of what your dog experiences whilst out with me or a member of the team! I usually wake up between 7am - 7:30am depending on if I have a morning walk booked in for the day. First things first... Breakfast! I am very grouchy when I am hungry so I make sure that I have my chamomile tea and a bowl of cereal / porridge within 30 minutes of getting out of bed.

CRAWLEY DOG WALKERS - MONDAY MEETS (Social Walks)

Hello Friends & Pet Parents! Recently I have had a lot of my clients and friends tell me that they are finding it hard to cope during lock down due to anxiety and fear over leaving the house. Whether they are going to work, going shopping or walking their dogs! It doesn't help matters that there has been a recent string of reported assaults on female joggers / lone women in the area, which is making people hesitant to walk their dogs in parks or more enclosed spaces. So what can I do to help

CRAWLEY DOG WALKERS - PICTURES & MY THANKS

Hello Friends & Pet Parents, How are you all? I am hoping that you are all keeping safe and well during the lock-down! To cheer you all up here are a few pictures of some of my gorgeous clients as well as some nature shots that I took myself during a walk around Buchan Park! 1. This first image is one that I took on the walk from my house to Buchan, it was early evening and very quiet. The road was empty apart from one police van in the distance. It was strangely tranquil. I took this pi

CRAWLEY DOG WALKERS - KEEP YOUR DOGS HEALTHY

Hello Friends & Pet Parents, One of the things that I love about dog walking as a profession is that we get to have a positive impact on so many  peoples lives. We help keep animals happy and healthy and we also give our pet parents some peace of mind. I can say hand on my heart that there is NOTHING better then seeing a happy, relaxed dog enjoying their walk, sniffing different smells and listening to far off noises in the distance, getting back to nature and being allowed to use their prim

Hello Friends & Pet Parents, Crawley Dog Walkers would like to offer free dog walks to anyone in the Crawley area who is considered 'high risk' in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak.

I have availability to offer free 15 minute dog walks ( a walk around the neighbourhood) Monday to Friday 14:30 - 16:00. I will be running this free dog walk service f
