Fun and safe dog walking with Happy Hounds & Cooler Cats

Dog walking is part of the pleasure of being a dog owner, but life is busy! And we can’t pack everything in.  So whether you’re busy working (away or at home), out for the evening, late home or pushed for time any reason, we can help.  We provide lovely individual or group dog walks, daycare or overnight boarding  for your dogs or puppies to give you the freedom and let you know your dog is having the exercise, fun,  socialisation and care they need.

Your dog will have a fantastic hour’s dog walk, though we can tailor this if your dog has specific needs. And all our walks are carried out in parks and green spaces, so it’s safe and interesting for your dog to walk on or off the lead, providing lots of exercise, fun and frolics.

Visits and puppy day care helps them get the right level exercise, basic training as well as socialisation so they learn from others and become fabulous dogs.

Group walks

Brilliant fun! Small groups of dogs in the great outdoors in fab spaces. Some energetic, some more sedate according to their needs. 

One to one (or two)

Need something more tailored?  Groups aren't for everyone so just a walker and your dogs can be better for some

Older dog care

Care can be adapted as your dog's needs change. Sometimes it's about comfort, company, feeding, a local stroll and a comfort break

Reasons to use us

Fully vetted, trained people supported by a great team, we know what we’re looking for and only take the best.  And we train everyone

LOADS of experience  we’ve been doing this since 2000 so we know exactly what we’re doing (and what not to do!)

We’re super reliable – you’ll never need to find a back up walker again we work in small teams who support each other. If someone’s away we make sure we’ve got enough wiggle room to cover.  And we share information and meet each others dogs so we get to know everyone.  We’re like a big family (that smells a bit of dog…..)

Easy online booking you can talk to us during the day, but you can book and cancel and pay online whenever you like. The internet never sleeps!

Easy payment options you don’t have to worry about leaving out cash or writing cheques.  You can pay monthly by direct debit or transfer or card. We make things easy peasy.

Dog walking with Happy Hounds & Cooler Cats

 Fun dog walks

Your dog will have a fantastic hour’s dog walk, though we can tailor this if your dog has specific needs. And all our walks are carried out in parks and green spaces, so it’s safe and interesting for your dog to walk on or off the lead, providing lots of exercise, fun and frolics. We vary the locations of the walks to provide variety for your dog and also look to avoid places where there are too many other dogs. Our local knowledge is excellent and shared amongst us and we adjust our walks accordingly.

Safety and security

The safety of the dogs and our dog walkers is our number one priority so we are continually reviewing where we walk to ensure this. Also having been in operation since 2000, for security reasons we made a decision a few years ago to stop using branded vehicles. Some clients were concerned about vehicles providing an alert that they weren’t at home. As dog napping became a ‘thing’ we knew we’d made the right decision to avoid that form of marketing – we certainly didn’t want to advertise our routes or our precious cargo to anyone.  So we stopped with the stickers.

Appropriate exercise for your dog

Your dog will return home safe, happy and tired having had great fun with his or her friends. Happy Hounds & Cooler Cats are experts at tailoring each walk to your dog’s individual needs and are more than happy to play with favourite toys or to reinforce any training or routines that you have in place. Because we are a team, we can also ensure your dog is with the right person and group for their individual needs. And if their needs change, what we offer can change too.

After the walk

We always check that water bowls are full, wet dogs are towelled down and we can also follow any feeding or medication requests you might have.

 

What times are the walks?

We provide day time walks while you’re at work, but evening and weekend walks are also available, if you’re out and about, working shifts or just haven’t got the time yourself.  Get in touch for more information.

Who are the walkers?

Our walkers are fully insured, thoroughly referenced and police checked as well as being fully trained by us so you can be sure your dog is in great hands.  We are all very experienced dog lovers and will ensure your dog has a great time.  We can provide either one to one walks or group walks of a maximum of 6 so your dog can enjoy playing and having fun with other friendly dogs. And you can meet some of our lovely walkers here. For more information on any of this, please check out our Dog walking FAQs or get in touch and have a chat.

What to do next?

Well,  just contact us or call us on 020 3743 9247 / .7957 585 175. We’ll then take some information about your dog and then arrange to come and say hello at a time that suits you.  We are very flexible and will always look to tailor our dog walking service to your dog’s individual needs. There is no obligation at all. We are also happy to arrange a complimentary trial dog walk with your dog walker to make sure that you and your dog are 100% happy before you start.
