Need a Dog Walker in Bournemouth or Poole? – You have just found the best!
At Barkers we love dogs and we love walking them. Whatever the weather we enjoy the beaches and beautiful countryside that surround us. We always have fun with the dogs in our care and they enjoy their time with us. If you are working or going to be out for the day or evening why not let your dog join us on our daily adventures – so you don’t have to worry.
Barkers provides a unique but professional, friendly and fully insured service. We are here to work around you making your pets happy and your life a little easier! Better still our dog walking prices start at just £8.
This is a big walk! Providing your dog is already socialised, he or she can immediately enjoy the benefits of being walked with a pack (4 per handler) of other happy, friendly dogs. I’ll collect your dog either early morning, lunchtime or afternoon and return them home after. In the car, all dogs are crated securely for their own safety. When we’re out walking I monitor the Dogs so I can quickly pick up on tendencies and behaviours. Where necessary, I may change walking groups to improve the fun factor and confidence of individual dogs. This is good for addressing and preventing any unwanted behavior patterns in the group and to harmonise the experience.
Your dog’s first walk is FREE when you book a regular weekly service of 3 or more walks each week. A discount may be available for a ’5-day-week’ service, depending on time of walk and location. Also, recommend a neighbour and you will get a discount every time your dogs are walked together.
Designer Dog Walking in Bournemouth and Poole – from £8
We can also offer shorter walks tailored to you and your dogs needs. If you prefer your dog to be walked alone or your dog only requires a shorter more relaxed walk to stretch the legs and do their business – we can come morning, afternoon or evening to ensure he or she is taken care of to your more specific instructions!
Our Designer Dog Walk starts at £8. They are just that – a walk designed especially for your dog and your budget! Price for Designer Walk’s will depend on location and time required – please call to discuss.
About our walks…
Our big walks are always varied and are usually more than an hour long. Our designer walks are about what you want. On all our walks your dog will be encouraged to follow basic standard commands like ‘wait, come, go’ etc. If you are struggling with recall, you will find that overtime (with group walking) this will improve as your dog picks up some good habits from the rest of the Barkers pack. Your dog will be rewarded with lots of praise and fuss (plus healthy treats when needed to reinforce and encourage good behavior). Even for us humans good manners need to be practised daily in order for us to remember them! Dogs are encouraged to enjoy fun natural activity like swimming, playing with other dogs and ball/fetch games etc especially good for those that still have endless energy to burn.
Every dog receives 1-2-1 time with me for bonding and building confidence where needed. We look forward to welcoming and spoiling your lovely dog with some great natural activity and adventures to stimulate and fulfil mind, body and spirit.
Just let us know what you want and we can work round you to ensure your dog is well cared for.
