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 ! 



Birthday boy Ralph

So the last of this years puppies turned one years old today and what a dog he is ! Ralph a beautiful Lhasa apso, I first got to look after him doing puppy visits and then onto walks. Like the other new puppies, he is just a joy to walk, we have so much fun, he loves everyone, I even take him along side our other young doggie Ozzie he turned one this October, he is also very cute, very well behaved he is a Norfolk terrier. Below is part of my birthday montage to Ralph from our facebook page, as you can see he is so cute he is such a strong little character though love him always a pleasure to walk him and spend time with him.

Beautiful winter in the Peak District.

So until today with storm Deidre, we have not had bad weather at all, now about to start the third week of December. I have had some really lovely walks with the dogs, yes it was cold but we have had sunshine, frozen ground so no mud and this last week as been great at Little Happy Hounds, so many fabulous dog nature walks. 

So the end of 2018, almost Christmas time and I am looking forward to break, our last puppy who came on board with us this year Ralph turned one years old, like the other new pupsters, Norfolk terrier Ozzie and westie Pippa he is a pleasure to walk, they are all coming back on command, being very good on and off lead, excellent in the car brilliant with other dogs, my other newbies cockerspaniel Monty and sausage dog terrier mix Maisy are also brilliant clients I have been so lucky this year. 


As 2018 draws to a close its been a crazy year for Little Happy Hounds. Lots of things have happened personally works been busy and done well with new clients, and I am looking forward to next year with new beginnings.  The picture above was taken last week, top of Lantern Pike, one of the many steep terrain walks we do, its sheep free up there, its busier than it use to be so prefer taking small groups up there. Find us on Facebook for daily updates, and photos. 


For dog walking and cat sitting, we cover Whaley Bridge, Chapel-en-le-Frith, Chinley, Buxworth, High Peak Derbyshire. We offer years of experience, I am a one man show so we are a small business, offering a very personal touch to the pet care work I do. As a dog walker, I walk in small groups, off leads when it is safe to do so, I don’t offer daycare as such but when clients ask me to double walk there dog that does tend to take up most of the day with travel.

beautiful Ralph

so this year I was very lucky to take on several new clients, with their now being a lot of competition with lots of pet care businesses.  I had a few gaps for dog walking clients, so firstly Pippa the westie puppy joined us, then Monty, lovely ginger hair cocker spaniel, then a beautiful puppy called Ozzie a norfolk terrier . So I was full up but then I got offered another puppy visit client and I really couldn’t say no, especially after meeting him the very cute Ralph, he is Lhasa apso , and just the cutest, really feisty character, love spending time with him. Anyway his owners left me a review/recommendation on the Little Happy Hounds Facebook other day I screen shot it below, it was a lovely review, as very touched.

Ralph is funny he and Ozzie as they are similar ages have become really close, from rough playing to just standing near each other its beyond cute to see their bond. As a dog walker its always a privilege and a blessing to be with a dog from such a young age, you get very attached, but also form a brilliant bond with them.
