There's nothing worse than locking yourself out of home or losing your house keys. We can certainly get your spare keys to you ASAP. On numerous occasions we have dropped keys to clients, put them in taxis or people have collected them from us.
how long will my dog be away from home during walking days?
Our pick ups start at approx. 08:30 and it usually takes an hour or so to collect the dogs before arriving at the park. We then walk for an hour plus before heading off on the return journey. You can expect your dog to be out and about for most of the morning.
How long will my dog be walked for?
Our walks are for a minimum of one hour and very often end up extending to 1.5 hours. As we only walk one group each per day, and enjoy every moment at the park, time is not an issue for us. Generally your dog will be out and about all morning and will have the rest of the day to relax and sleep before you arrive home.
Where will my dog be walked?
The park we have been using since 1999 is a well kept secret. It is a safe park well away from busy roads. There are numerous bush walks and ovals and, other than local residents, not many people are aware this park exists. We are happy to tell you about the park when you sign up to use our services but hesitate to publish its name on this website - call us territorial!
do you look after cats?
Actually our feline friends were once a big part of our business. These days we don't employ staff and our main focus is on dog walking and dog minding services. That being said, if you are looking for someone to feed and mind your cat, and you live in our area, please feel free to contact us. We may just be able to help out.
