service spotlight- puppy visits.

So away from the dog walking one of the services I provide at Little Happy Hounds is puppy visits / puppy care/ puppy sitting.  I provide puppy visits in the areas of Chinley, where I am based, Whaley Bridge, Buxworth, Chapel-en-le-Frith, Furness Vale, High Peak, Derbyshire. Other areas maybe covered, for enquires, call 07732265149 or visit main website

or find us on Facebook,

I can also be emailed directly info@littlehappyhounds.co.uk 

So like most of our services this is a very personalised service. I call in to visit a young puppy, once or twice a day, break up a long day at home alone, feed them, provide company, cuddles, playtime, and I also offer praise based training, recall, bite inhibition and lots of socialising. 

I am not a trainer at all so I strongly advice all clients with puppies to join a puppy training class, I have to say in the years I have been a dog walker it shows which puppies have not been to a class and which ones have.

A lot of dog walkers especially around here, offer puppy visits but do they do offer the training I do alongside my visit or is it just cuddles ? I am big believer in socialising little and often with young dogs,  every scenario going, walks in busy places, people, walks near busy roads, its important to get your puppy use to lots of different sights and sounds, I also do recall, toilet training,  socialising and bite inhibition, what tends to happen at Little Happy Hounds the puppies eventually go onto to one of group dog walks, which is really special for me as I have obviously built up a very strong bond with the puppy so for them to become my dog walking client is a honour and I find the ones that have been my puppies first, listen to me, have excellent recall and are very happy well rounded dogs.

 

My experience, is varied, I have read puppy training books, I recommend serval to my clients, I also have puppy experience through dog ownership and of course I have puppy experience running little happy hounds for the last 8 years I have cared for many puppies during this time.

FAB FAB FEBRUARY.

Firstly February has been the cat sitting month, I have taken a new booking for June, but also I was looking after Polly, then Baz Aggie Lennie, then currently Esmee and Luna for two weeks we half way there with that, then Thursday and Friday I popped in on Queenie to do a short two day duration for her, and last night a new cat visit duration started for Ole and Tin tin till Sunday more.  So what I am wanting to do with the cats is cut back especially on twice a day visits and the ones that are far from home, when it comes to the evening and the weekend I don’t actually want to drive far to cat feed, money is okay but its not amazing especially when you count unsociable hours and the cost of diesal, so I am going to be much more careful about what I do. Which includes no more cats in New Mills.  I have a lot of cats I see in Whaley Bridge, Buxworth, Chapel-en-le-Frith even one or two in New Mills, but what I don’t have is any in Chinley so until that happens I am happy to cut back on the far away ones like New Mills, I know I am only in Chinley but to much driving makes me stressed, also the roads, percent state of being dug up, parked cars everywhere you go so lots of stop / start it can be a nightmare driving round here.

So the dogs !! so Peanut a border terrier came to me via another dog walker sending me the enquiry so I have thanked her for that and puppy Ralph has come to me via my some of my long term clients so what I am realising more more, writing blogs, social media , flyer dropping ‘ if I do that ‘ only achieves so much, the real form of advertisement now is word of mouth and reputation, so I am glad that it is working for me, as I am over the moon with Peanut firstly and also the prospect a young puppy going us.  Peanut is great she’s been on three walks, gets on with everyone is a typical high energy terrier she is only 8 months old I am very attached to her already !! She is also awesome in the van as she first to be collected its another five stops before we get to the walk it took almost an hour last week before we got to walk. 

So puppy Ralph starts twice daily week after next, I went to meet him and he’s adorable, glad to report he is completely different personality to a cockapoo puppy I took on last year which did not work out, the other cockapoo who joined me last year Gracie is absolute angel, she is high energy dog and I always look forward to her twice weekly walks, so with Ralph I will have four cockapoos on my books in the history of Little Happy Hounds Ralph will be number six !! So I would say I know the breed I definitely love the breed thats for sure.  The other thing I love about Ralph is he is apricot coloured, Max, Bobbie, Bridie and Gracie are all jet black, Gracie has some amazing grey making on her face, the first Betty I looked after years ago was amazing array of colours, white , black patches of tan! So plan is to work with Ralph during puppy visits, he will be getting some puppy training of a trainer and then I am hoping he can join group walks at 4 to 5 months old, I am not rushing though when he is big enough older enough has recall etc,  very exciting times only second month of the new year and we have new dog and new puppy !

So what I really need now is new dogs on Fridays ! When the last few New Mills dogs left in 2018, as I was centralising the business it left a gap on Friday, usually this would of filled very quickly but combination of not advertising and all the new dog walkers meant had no enquiries that day !! I enjoy being quiet on Fridays but again I still need a new dog or two that as at the moment I am not actually covering the fuel I am using to collect the few dogs I have ! 

So February has been kind month for Little Happy Hounds,  minus the weather bit, I have not enjoyed that at all, I am looking forward to March. Both work wise and personally March will be a great month !! firstly Its my very significant birthday and I have one or two little things planned to mark the occasion as its a big one, but I am also entering a new era, I want to focus on my health now and try and get a bit fitter, I am also returning home for few days going up to Newcastle, to see my dad, I have not been to Newcastle since 2017 I think.  And just before easter we were planning a long weekend away for my birthday and we were thinking Robins Bay, Whitby kind of area I have never been and its suppose to a area of outstanding beauty for walking, so we have to get a wriggle on and get that organised I have already booked time off from work.

local pet services FAB-UARY.

So work the business that is Little Happy Hounds is booming, got new clients that are a dream, taking new cat sitting bookings with all the new dog walkers coming into the area with loudly branded over compensating vans I am able to keep doing what I do discreetly and its still working we are still getting new enquiries I feel very fortunate indeed. 

So new dog Peanut has come into my life two miles down the road from me based in Buxworth she is 8 months old brave well socialsied much loved border terrier, I love her and all my dog walking regulars love her just two walks in I can see her fitting into nicely in the way I do things at Little Happy Hounds. 

As a local dog walker, I only cover the immediate local area to me, so in and around Chinley, I cover Whaley Bridge, Buxworth, and Chapel-en-le-Frith I also have some cat sitting clients in Furness Vale, I cant  cover Dove Holes or Buxton as its just a little bit too. far out form the other clients and as of 2018 we stopped covering the New Milld vicinities, New Mills, Birch Vale, Hayfield, I have kept 1 or 2 long term cat sitting clients but with increase of traffic meant I no longer could cover such a wide area and still provide a quality service. 

I do a full on hour walk, the travel bit doesn’t not come into that, I have a lot of Whaley Bridge clients I do on the first morning walk, then depending on day on the second walk I have Chapel, Chinley and Whaley dogs so by the time I have done two lots of six dogs its nearly 2:30 and home time for me. For clients I do shorter walks if needed ‘toilet visits’ and I also do longer walks if requested which is basically a double walk, If I get any new enquiries its going to have to be 2 pm walk or any time on Friday which since we give up New Mills has been my quiet day. 

Peanut aside I took two cat sitting bookings, one is confirmed and in my diary waiting for lady to confirm the other, and we also heard and are going to meet puppy Ralph on Friday he starts his puppy visits week after next, he will eventually be another new dog walking client twice a day and another cockapoo in my life.

What am now focusing on with the business is to remain a local pet care  business that offers quality over quantity every time, I’m friends with lots of local dog walkers the ones I rate and also home boarding places as its not a service I can provide so networking is very important to me.   I am also focusing on doing dog nature walks making sure every walk I do is an hour plus, when I can I will always do longer especially in fabulous weather,  and just really looking after my clients humans and dogs, making sure I provide the best most personalised service I can, I offer discretion for cat sitting and dog walking when your not home,  I drive a unbranded white van so I can come and go unnoticed  and discreetly.

November 19

So with the run up to Christmas we are busy at Little Happy Hounds, this post is about the business what we do and the walks we have been on in November 2019.If your interested in any of our pet care services please feel free too ring me 07732265149 or email info@littlehappyhounds.co.uk with your enquiry, we also have a main website with lots of information, services, testimonials , and gallery http://www.littlehappyhounds.co.uk 

So this last few weeks I have been avoiding walking the dogs up on Eccles Pike for various reasons,  the main one being it was October half term so not comfortable taking groups of dogs up there when everyones off work schools are closed. 

so I have been traveling further out too make sure my dogs have a great walk, various terrains, quiet places so they can enjoy a proper walk off leads. As a dog walker we walk in small well managed groups, all my clients have good recall so are off leads, the places I have been going are the Goyt Valley and Taxal.  Last year I centralised the business a bit and we stopped covering New Mills, I had a few dogs in New Mills but the majority were in Whaley Bridge, Chapel-en-le-Frith and Chinley, I basically did this too cut back on car time, it was literally raking too long to pick dogs up, A555 has done many wonderful things including making the A6 much busier.

So I tend too do three one hour groups a day, the first two my morning and lunch time group tend to be busier and my third walk is always nice and quieter less dogs on that walk , so older dogs, ad hoc dogs can go on that walk, just depends what time of day people are looking for, with travel and the dog walks I work 9:30 too about 4 most days sometimes later with the cat visits.

So now I have dog walking  and cat sitting clients in Chinley, Chapel-en-le-Frith, Whaley Bridge and Buxworth which are very much areas we cover. Little Happy Hounds is fully insured, trusted key holder.  Puppy visits, dog nature walks, and pet sitting.

When I started the business back in 2012, there was not many people dog walking, the few I knew of were word of mouth ‘mature ladies’ shall we say, few were doing it the way I was website, using social media, how things have changed seven years down the line, in the face of all the new competition, we are still here as a small local business, still thriving and still focusing on our ethos, which is to provide dogs with excellent countryside walks and too offer the most caring personalised service we can, here is too the next seven years as I feel with my new van and my new clients our recent move that I am just getting started. 

Winter has landed in the High Peak I have some niggling cold which is not. helping but everywhere is feeling cold, wintry, dare I say it very muddy. The next few months are going to be busy with the dogs I walk and the cat sitting bookings, over the Christmas period I take a bit of time off and return second week of January fully charged raring too go. The photos in this blog are all recent from last weeks dog walks and cat visits. find us on Facebook too follow our adventures in full.
