Get in touch

Happy Hounds & Cooler Cats have been providing interesting and fun dog walking in Greenwich for over 15 years. Need a dog walker? You’ve come to the right place.

Our lovely local dog walker is Vienna. She is incredibly experienced and has a fabulous group of dogs who really enjoy their daily walks. Having worked with us for a number of years, Vienna’s clients just adore her and they have great walks on Blackheath, Greenwich Park and other fantastic places.  Vienna is CRB checked, insured and fully trained by us so you can rest assured your four legged family member will be well looked after. Many of her clients have been with us for a number of years and the dogs really appreciate their walks come rain or shine. To hear what some of our clients have been kind enough to say about us and our dog walkers please visit our testimonials

Most of our clients require walks during the middle of the day, Monday to Friday, but Vienna our dog walker can also offer evening or weekend walks if required. And because we work as a team, if Vienna isn’t available another one of her colleagues provides cover and we can also provide cat sitting, dog boarding and house sitting too.

Dog Walking in Greenwich Park and on Blackheath

Dog walking in Greenwich is great as our walks are carried out in beautiful Greenwich Park and Blackheath. Where the dogs can enjoy on or off lead walks in a safe and secure environment with plenty of interesting sniffs and smells.

Safety is our number one priority so we make that group sizes are right for your dog. We make sure we get to know your dog and all their individual traits well and your dog will only be allowed off the lead with your express permission. Once Vienna is confident that your dog is happy to return when called.

 

“I can’t recommend Happy Hounds & Cooler Cats highly enough”  Luc, Doris the Dog’s owner

“Cath and team excel themselves with their flexibility and an individual and personal service that many companies could only dream about providing”  Ruth, Kira & Ozzy’s owner

How does it work?

Get in touch

Send a message or call on 020 3743 9247 & we’ll take some info to see who’s best for you. 

We come & meet you

To see if you like us.  We think you will.  But if you don't, you can meet another person

Then we just do it!

Book your regular visits. Make changes online.  Pay monthly by bank transfer, card or direct debit.  Easy. 

And if your regular walker’s away?

Then your back up dog walker will be there instead.  Want to meet some of the team?

Other services: dog boarding, house sitting & cat sitting in Greenwich and Blackheath

In addition to dog walking, We can also offer dog boarding, house sitting & cat sitting services in the Greenwich and Blackheath area.

Boarding is a great alternative to kennels and your dog becomes like a member of a new family with all the comforts of home. Your dog will be happy and secure and get all the exercise and love and attention they’re used to.

Our cat feeding and pet sitting service means that rather than taking your pets to a cattery or kennels we visit your pets in their own home. This is most suitable for cats and small animals as cats in particular hate leaving their own territory, this means they’re not disrupted and are much happier and relaxed on your return.

If you would like any further information on either of these services please give us a call on 020 3743 9247  / 07957 585 175 or use our contact page or email us at info@happyhounds.co.uk.

Call us to arrange a (free, of course!) no obligation meeting to go through your requirements.  We look forward to hearing from you.
