WE HAVE ONE SPACE AVAILABLE ON OUR LUNCHTIME DOG WALK FROM MID-JAN 2019!
We are proud to set high standards for our dog walks. All dogs are carefully vetted to ensure they are a good match within the group. Only one new dog is taken on at a time. Dogs are walked
in groups of no more than six. We prefer dogs to be off-lead but if their recall is unreliable they will stay on-lead. We can discuss your dog's requirements in detail when we meet you,
You will be asked to sign a consent form before your dog joins our walks, and we operate in accordance with the Pet Industry Federation (PIF) Guidance for Dog Walkers.
When you book your dog on to one of our group walks they will have a full hour of exercise. Collection and drop-home is included in the walk price but the time is not taken out of the dog's walk time!
I will personally collect your dog from your house, walk them as part of a small group of 4-6 dogs and drop them home afterwards. There are no additional costs - pick-up and drop-off in my van is included as well as poo bags and dog treats.
You don't even need to provide a lead as I use my own so there's no chance of yours being lost or damaged. All dogs must be wearing a collar (and harness if required) with ID tag attached and be microchipped (these are a legal requirement).
In winter and on cold days if you leave a coat out I will ensure your dog is dressed warmly if they are likely to feel the cold. If you would like your dog towelled down after their walk, please leave a 'dog towel' so I can ensure they have clean paws before they settle down for their afternoon nap!
All our walks are in public spaces in and around Bromley and Beckenham. We stick to places where we are away from roads and traffic to reduce the risk to our dogs.
We like to be able to have plenty of off-lead running around, and as the dogs all get along, they really enjoy a chase and playing with their doggy pals.
If your dog is not to be trusted off-lead, then that's fine. We can work with that too.
Our training is all about positive reinforcement - rewards (aka bribery with treats!) work well, and we like to spend a little time helping dogs learn to become well-behaved with good manners when out and about.
Here are some of our dogs' favourite parks and woodlands for dog walks locally.
This is Beckenham Place Park. It is a lovely big open space away from roads and traffic. It's perfect for a good energetic run off lead, or a game of chase the tennis ball. There is also some woodland to nose about in and possibly find a few squirrels to chase!
Wonderful at any time of year, and a favourite place for us on hot summer days as the dogs can cool off in the little River Ravensbourne that runs through the park.

South Norwood Country Park is another big open space near Elmers End. It is a green space popular with cyclists and there are some good views across over to Docklands. The park occupies a mix of countryside and parkland.
There are 125 acres to explore here - enough to keep even the biggest dog well exercised. The site is located on what used to be a sewage farm for the Corporation of Croydon, but don't let that put you off!
This Country Park is intended to preserve the wetlands and develop new meadowlands. There is a wide variety of birds living on the site or regularly visit and these include Mallard, Kestrel, Pheasant, Gulls, Skylark, Warblers, Tits, Finches and Linnets. Over twenty variety of butterflies have been spotted on the site and also several varieties of moth. So keep your eyes peeled!

Kelsey Park, Beckenham is a very different type of park. It's not so good for a big dog that likes haring around at top speed, but for smaller dogs it is a lovely place to explore, so long as you stick to the dog designated areas!
There's a hidden woodland walk and Kelsey is beautifully maintained with lovely planting throughout the seasons. It's well worth a visit, and is especially colourful in spring and summer when the daffodils and then summer bedding are in full bloom.
The park is home to many squirrels, mostly quite tame as they have become used to being fed by local children. Ace likes the squirrels an awful lot. So far she has yet to catch one, but she dreams about it.
There is a lot for children in this park - there's also a little cafe which makes a great meeting point, and an all weather table tennis table plus a table football game is nearby. All good fun!

Harvington Estate can be reached from Eden Park Avenue or Stone Park Avenue in Beckenham, with a free car park at the Eden Park entrance.
The park is mainly a large green space, with woodland down one side. You can walk through the woods where there are many paths to explore. The heavily wooded area leads through to Kelsey Park if you wanted to extend your walk. On a nice sunny day you could stop for a tea or coffee and cake at the baker and patisserie, Sponge Kitchens which has some outdoor seating.
The River Beck runs through the woods so there's somewhere for dogs to have a splash and a drink on a hot day.
