LHH June onwards

so corona virus has rendered work quiet for me, I did a extra long walk today for cockapoo sisters Bobbie and Bridie, Norfolk terrier Ozzie and cocker spaniel Monty, it was Montys first day back since lockdown so he was last walked in March ! I mean it could be a lot worse, work is ticking along albeit quietly, tomorrow is the busiest day so for now its feet up and writing posts on my blog especially as its raining ! 


So I initially took four weeks off and reopened putting in strict social distancing measures with my clients, cleaning the van down regularly changing towels and harnesses as much as possible, it doesn’t look like things are going to get better any time soon, apparently death rates of corona are falling, looks like social distancing is here to stay and schools are now staying shut till September so I cant really hang about waiting for normality to come back as its way off, so with little happy hounds being such a small business I will continue to carry on, its business as usual with all our new things in place, so we are in the position to take on new clients, you could find me via our main website http://www.littlehappyhounds.co.uk or on facebook business page, best way to get old of. me is via email info@littlehappyhounds.co.uk or call 07732265149.

All the photos on this post are from walks done at the end of May early June, we had a week of really hot weather so I was doing water walks for the dogs in the woods lots of shade, with corona all my cat sitting bookings are cancelled, we will have to see what the future brings regarding that, I am still providing dog walks, I did have a cockapoo puppy I was visiting, when he eventually comes back he will be a fully fledged dog !! 


Little Happy hounds, run by just me Aaron, I began the business when we lived in New Mills, we moved to Whaley Bridge, spent half a decade there and then last summer 2019 we opted for a new start quieter life in the near by village of Chinley, its all my dreams come true firstly living in a village not a town and our new house is a very old house and it. happens to in the Peak District National Park Boundary !I still very much cover Whaley Bridge and have lots of clients there we do lots of lovely walks near by! 

I am very lucky and fortunate enough to have lots of lovely long term clients, in Chinley, Chapel-en-le-Frith, Furness Vale, Buxworth, and Whaley Bridge, High Peak. I am DBS checked, a trusted key holder, fully insured, I drive a van with no company details at all offering a more discrete service for when your pet is home alone ! 



Can not believe its only Tuesday

I feel like I have done an entire week of Little Happy Hounds I am a very tired dog walker indeed;  which is annoying as its only Tuesday I am feeling more tired than usual sleeping very deeply struggling too get up nice and early !! This is not a complaint but a observation. Winter lack of sunshine and long dog walks always makes me very tired… 

So Monday yesterday we did three one hour walks and today just two one hour dog walks. we have a extra dog this week, a black Schnauzer called Teddy, who I walked once before a few months back he belongs to some family members of my client Monty a lovely cocker spaniel I walk regularly. Teddy is a one off and staying on a long training lead as he can be a bit precious and I am worried he will run away ! As a one off dog walk I don’t mind walking a dog on a lead, as all my little happy hounds regulars are able to be off leads.

So yesterday the dog friendly walks were, Taxal, Eccles Pike, and my third walk, which was just my dog Scrappy and sisters German shepherd Amy and her rescue dog sister Ruby was along the Peak Forest Canal, I start near Bridgemont walk towards Bugsworth Basin and do a loop around the basin its the flattest walk I do just because I have lost Toddbrook reservoir now and their are not many good walks too do near the Whaley Lane end of town, the girls love that canal walk so all is good ! 


Today I had two walks my first was Fernilee Reservoir my second was a repeat of a walk I do at Taxal, its rained a bit mostly drizzling which is fine as its been a lot milder this week, the pictures are just a few from the last few days find us on Facebook too follow our adventures in full. 


Yesterday I got some cat sitting bookings from the regulars, Queenie booked in for three days in December, more of my regular cat clients in Buxworth added another date too December they already have a week of cat visits booked in,  and this weekend I am now popping in too cat feed Bertie Friday eve, and twice on Saturday! 

For dog walking and cat sitting, I am based in Chinley and cover the surrounding areas of Buxworth, Furness Vale, Whaley Bridge and Chapel-en-le-Frith High Peak, Derbyshire.  Pet care services,  include pet sitting, cat sitting, dog walking and puppy visits. As of  2018 we ceased operating in New Mills, Hayfield and Birch Vale, as we centralised the business.

Christmas count down.

Little Happy Hounds dog blog Christmas edition post.

So my presents are wrapped, I have almost sorted my going away arrangements for Christmas. Clients cards and a very small gift have arrived, just did the last cat visit for 2018, this morning, just one more week left of dog walks, and 2018 draws to a close for Little Happy Hounds.  So its starting to feel a lot like Christmas. 


So as we moved forward, our emphasis has a small local pet care business, is to provide, excellent dog nature walks and offer a very caring, personalised pet sitting services for the New Year. Into 2019 we are no longer covering the New Mills area, we offer our dog walking, cat sitting and puppy visits in Whaley Bridge, Chinley, Buxworth, Chapel-en-le-Frith, High Peak. The reason being there are so many dog walkers and dog daycare places in New Mills,  but also with the traffic increase particularly on the A6, it means its taking longer to get around and my theme for next year is less driving and more walking. So I want to cover less areas and try and centralise things a bit. 

So last week we were blessed with beautiful weather, the dogs really enjoyed all their walks, as we had no rain, just sunshine, was a bit cold, we did longer walks on Friday. The pictures below were taken on Fridays first walk near the Goyt Valley, just over winter I have combined my third walk clients and first walk clients as they are very flexible but also doing three one hour walks on a Friday in winter was exhausting me. Besides the six below are brilliant, come in for treats on command when we see joggers etc and we go on a quiet walk were the majority of people I see no me no my dogs.  For me its about time spent in nature for the dogs, off leads, they are all friendly so happy to socialise with one another and other friendly dogs we meet. When time allows me we will do longer than hour, 

find us on Facebook, youtube Instagram to follow our adventures.




So its been very busy first week back I have done three one hour dog walks every day this last week, plus we have been looking after beautiful kitty Rosie. Dog walking wise we have been to Lantern Pike, Hayfield, and Taxal, with our doggy clients, we have regular dogs we care for based in Whaley Bridge, Chapel-en-le-Frith, Hayfield, New Mills and Chinley in the High Peak Derbyshire. 

Rosie only gets one daily visit, she can go outside but prefers strokes and to be fed, when I look after her its just a matter of cleaning up after her, feeding her, maintaining her litter tray, she is so beautiful though as you can tell on these pics.

Hayfield hounds.

So this week we have had snow, and we done quite a few dog walks in Hayfield with our lunch time clients,  we have dog walking clients we often see in New Mills, Birch Vale and Hayfield. As a dog walker, we walk in small groups, off leads and we love too go off the beaten track, at Little Happy Hounds, we love dog nature walks which is why we often go too Hayfield. My other walks in and around High Peak this week have been Eccles Pike in Chape-en-le-Frith and we did lots of Taxal walks with our Whaley Bridge dog walking clients. Pics below are just a select few from our Dog friendly Hayfield walks this week find us Facebook for a lots more pics of our doggy adventures. 








the business we call dog walking LHH

I started the business off back in 2012 New Mills High Peak ( were we lived at that time) I noticed apart from one or two word of mouth operations, nobody was doing dog walking, using a website and social media in the town, (of course 2.5 years later others are doing it now.)  As a dog walker New Mills is a great place, if you no the area and how to get away from the crowds, for our dog walks.

Now based in Whaley Bridge I still very much operate in and around New Mills, with dog walking clients in New Mills, Birch Vale and Hayfield, I also have a number of regular cat sitting clients in New Mills.

We now also have clients in Whaley Bridge, Furness Vale, Chinley High Peak.

The majority of my work is dog walking, a lot of my dogs I have looked after since they were pups, as puppy visit clients, in the summer months especially I get a lot of cat visits work.

I am trying to keep Little Happy Hounds small and personal, offering experienced pet care services, walking in small groups, offering nature walks with some of the  best places in High Peak on our doorstep to take my dogs too.
