July at LHH 2020

Its been a weird last few months, works been steady at times works been dead at times, with corona virus it means a lot of clients are down to reduced walks, so a dog I would see three or four times a week is now once a week, plus we lost a lot of cat sitting bookings, but its not all bad and there is light at the end of the tunnel. 



We where fortunate enough to take on a new client a few weeks back very sweet little dog Zelda she is a mix breed, a basset hound crossed with a toy poodle, she is very sweet cute but so well behaved !! A pleasure to walk I’m very lucky indeed. We are now seeing new dog cockapoo Wilf once a week regularly he joined us just before the world went mad in March with corona virus. We have new cat sittings book new client for August and regular clients Ole and Tin tin for October,


In this post are some of my favourite photos from last week and we have gotten two new recommendations on our Facebook page ! We are definitely able and very keen to take on new dog walking clients in our local area, once a week, twice a week, three times a week, we cover Whaley Bridge, Chinley, Chapel-en-le-Frith, Buxworth, High Peak Derbyshire , As a dog walker at Little Happy Hounds our emphasis on dog nature walks around the our beautiful local area of the Peak District, walking in small well organised groups. Fully insured pet care serves. 

we also now can start taking new cat sitting bookings I know when I am around and available for the rest of 2020. find us on Facebook or on our main website http://www.littlehappyhounds.co.uk or email info@littlehappyhounds.co.uk



so I am now in my fourth week back walking the dogs after corona virus closed LHH down for four solid weeks, 

So finally the guidelines have changed via the CFSG! I was partly  ignoring the government guide lines as to be honest they made no sense to me at all, things like dogs not being walked with other dogs and keeping them on leads not using my van etc , as I had made a concrete decision not to walk dogs from any households displaying corona virus symptoms, so if everyone is well the chances of corona passing from dog to dog via their fur is next to nil, I recognised this earlier on only. now as the guide lines caught up, a few other dog walkers judged me walking in small groups criticised even tried to make out insurance was not covering me well they were all wrong and now it turns out I was right, so I hope they all enjoyed their extra time off doing nothing or enjoyed their 1-2-1- dog lead walks on the pavement,

so just to reiterate Little Happy Hounds is back, but at the moment I only want to work part time, because of COV-19 Pandemic, so I am doing group walks only, small in number and only for households that are not self isolating because of corona symptoms, 

As ever I am cleaning the van, leads, towels and my hands frequently, I have advised clients to wipe down their dogs after their walks, as much as possible I am disinfecting as I go along!! And applying social distancing when I am collecting dogs dropping dogs its working really well so I am over the moon really. 



Dog walkers can continue to operate and priority should be given to key workers, and shielded and vulnerable people who are unable to make alternative safe arrangements for their dog. Dogs from coronavirus infected or self-isolating households may be walked but if doing so they must be walked after dogs from all other households.

The handover protocol set out by CFSG should be followed with the owner retaining all equipment such as leads. Handover should take place in a room or space large enough for the client and staff to maintain their social distance. Dogs from different households may be walked together as long as dogs from infected or self-isolating households are not mixed with others from non-infected households. Social distancing should be maintained for both the walker and the dogs by keeping the dogs on a lead at all times. Any equipment, including the vehicle if used to transport the dog, must be cleaned and disinfected between dogs.

Little Happy Hounds, pet care services Chinley. 

Fully insured, years of experience, we have operated in Chinley, Chapel-en-le-Frith, Buxworth and Whaley Bridge High Peak Derbyshire, for almost 8 years this August ! As a dog walker I avoid the same low level boring field walks that a lot of daycare places do, I take my clients on proper dog walks in the Peak District allowing plenty time off lead, to exercise and be mentally stimulated with interesting smells and interaction with my other dogs.  I don’t like going to much about my walks as feel  my social media speaks for itself and my dogs returning home tired and happy also speaks volumes !  ! 


Services include dog walking, cat sitting and puppy care, fully insured,, a trusted key holder I am DBS checked.




half term high peak.

So this post in my dog blog is about half term in the High peak and challenging weather we have had this week as a dog walker, its pretty much rained, rained heavily lots of flooding all over the uk, we have had two storms, today was just the icing on the cake, very heavy rain indeed.  Its not been easy I cant stand driving around watching the roads flood as its only in recent years its happened I have lived around here since 2005. 


:- new clients Lupo and Fridgey.

so I have had a few dogs off this week with the holidays but let busier as I have cat sitting several lots of cat clients.  I have a new cats sitting client in Chinley, last year we had two new clients in Buxworth, I very much want more pet sitting clients nearer to home, as its weekend and evening work and I don’t particularly want to head into new mills twice a day at the weekend, 

It was all very last minute booing with newbies so I had not met them when I collected key, until today, I was pleasantly surprised at them both female, Lupo and Fridgey, they are both so stunning, Lupo very tactile. They are having a once a day cat visit, are outdoor cats, just feeding, litter tray maintained. Mother cat sitting clients I am caring for at the moment are Esmee and Luna, over in New Mills, the last visit is this Saturday I have been popping in once a day now for almost two weeks !! Tomorrow is a dead day so my weekend starts this eve, got just one walk tomorrow two cat visits, I am hoping for a dry day we will see.

dog “nature” walks

I started using the words of dog “nature” walks last year although the concept is something I have done for a very long time.

Last year we moved further into Derbyshire to Whaley Bridge and with the Peak District National Park and the Goyt Valley five minutes from my new house, dog “nature ” walks sums up the service I offer perfectly.

Previously when I was in New Mills I had covered Stockport, which was nice at that time and the will always be special time for me, as I was developing my business. However, dog walking around Marple and dog walking around Whaley Bridge are two very different things, when i was in Marple I was dog walking now i am in Whaley Bridge I am providing dog “nature” walks.

Same with the other areas were my clients live like Chinley, New Mills, Hayfield, and Birch Vale, I prefer to take the dogs off the beaten track, away from parks etc, and find nice places, where they can spend time off leads, in nature.

I like to go to Toddbrook Reservoir sometimes,  or I take the dogs up Lantern Pike. If I have a quiet day I take the New Mills dogs to Rowarth for a full on countryside walk.

Little Happy Chinley

Not far from LHH HQ in Whaley Bridge is the village of Chinley High Peak Derbyshire. For a village its actually huge, in my humble opinion, and they are building a new housing estate on the site of a old factory.

It has a number of shops, post office, indian restaurant, laundrette, newsagents and a grocery store.

On one side of the village in Chapel Milton and then Chapel-en-le-Frith and in the other direction is Buxworth and then Bridgemont and the A6 road New Mills in one direction Whaley Bridge and the bypass to Buxton on the other.
