dog walking services

I offer either group or solo walks of 60 minutes (minimum) duration, although if a shorter walk is required then that can be arranged; solo walks can be offered by arrangement for nervous or reactive dogs. I am happy to meet with you and your dog(s) beforehand to discuss needs and requirements and to arrange signing of a contract of care.

All dogs will be lead walked unless I am familiar with the dog, am confident in its recall and have arranged this with the owner .


There are many walking routes in our beautiful highland scenery and regulars will be taken on a variety of walks. 

As we’re in the countryside your dog may get wet or have muddy paws on return although I will rub down and towel dry every dog after a walk when it’s needed.

I’m insured to walk 5 dogs at a time and am happy to accept adult, sociable dogs for this service, though mostly I walk with a maximum of 4 dogs.

It’s important to note that every dog must be fully vaccinated and proof of this is required;

all male dogs for group walks are required to be neutered

& female dogs are accepted only when they are not in season.
