ONE WOMAN AND HER DOG
Hello and thank you for your interest in Winnie’s Dog Walks.
My name is Laura Evans and I am the founder of Winnie’s Dog Walks. My Miniature Schnauzer, Winnie, is the inspiration behind the business. Winnie is a very kind natured and friendly dog, and she has generously agreed to share her owner with other great dogs.
I am absolutely bonkers about dogs! I have been ever since I had my first pet dog called Sally when I was just 5 years old. Winnie has been in dog day care and attending group walks since she was just a puppy. Therefore, I am so happy that I am now going to be joining her, and other lovely dogs, on their daily adventures.
We offer a range of services from local 1:1 dog walks, group walks in the countryside and day care. The most popular service we offer is the group dog walk. Dogs are collected from home, and then driven in a specially equipped van to a variety of locations, such as Devil’s Dyke, Stanmer Park, Wild Park, East Brighton Park, Waterhall, and also, coastal and river walks.
Come rain or shine, you can rely on us to ensure your dog is well cared for, thoroughly exercised and has fun. Whether you choose a morning, lunchtime or afternoon group walk, your dog will be exercised as part of a small group and always in a safe environment.
If you would like to meet to discuss any of our services, please do get in touch. I hope to see you and your dog very soon.
We take no more than 6 dogs on each group walk.
We have a specially equipped van, containing dog crates that are lined with blankets.
If the owner wishes the dog to be off the lead, we would prefer to do so. However, we are happy to walk the dog on a long lead if this is the owner’s preference.
We are a fully insured dog walking company and are happy to show our cover note if requested.
Yes, definitely. Please ask if you would like to make contact with one of our satisfied customers.
We have a zero tolerance of aggressive behavior, and therefore, we will ensure that if a dog shows any aggression, they are no longer welcome on Winnie’s Dog Walks.
All breeds are welcome, the main priority is that the dog is socialised and friendly. We will always meet the owner/s and dog before the initial walk, to identify any specific requirements and to ensure that all questions are addressed. We will not walk bitches if they are in season or any male dog over 12 months old who has not been castrated.
As part of the introductory meeting we will complete a customer registration document. This captures full contact details for the owner, and also, information on the veterinary surgery where the dog is registered. If your dog requires medical attention, you will be called immediately, and your dog will be taken to their vet. Owners are liable for any subsequent costs for their dog’s care.
