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. 


Like with all our services, I am fully insured, we are a small local business I have no employees all the care is provided by me, I am DBS checked and that certificate can be viewed at your meet and greet upon request, all the puppies you will see in this post on this dog blog are current dog walking clients that I have had the pleasure to care for from being tiny little happy puppies ! 

other services include dog walker, cat sitting and pet sitting.





Easter Kitties.

So I have been rubbish at blogging lately, I have been so busy mostly walking the dogs, that I have not had much time to post about all things Little Happy Hounds, I am currently enjoying some time off work so thought today would be a good day to write a post about what I got up to over the easter break. 

I never got around to booking anything holiday wise, it was my partners big birthday so by the time I had organised that then other little things kept popping up and getting in the way so in the end we decided just to take the time off and enjoy our local countryside and go for walks in and around Derbyshire the peak district.

We went on a five mile walk on Easter Monday from Wash up to Brown Knoll,  via Shire Oaks farm, then on Tuesday we did a Higher Disley walk I have not done in ages, over Black Rocks, through the grounds of the Moorside Grange, over Whaley Moor onto Start lane Whaley then back to Higher Disley via back the end of Lyme Park. 

I always take a week off at easter, with the dog walking its not easy managing the dogs on walks when everyone is off work, my walks are busy for three weeks over April and Easter as schools close different times so take a breather away from all the crowds is brilliant, I only really took Tuesday to Friday off as I was automatically closed for dog walking Good Friday to Easter Monday, plus I was working I was looking after cats all of last week the last one finished on Tuesday. 

So I was looking after the little happy cats, Eustace, Queenie and Roary, I could of had another one but it was to late notice wise, in general its best to book in advance, especially if its a new client or I have not seen the cat in a while, its easter weekend, I had a birthday party to arrange so three cats was quite enough thank you. 

Anyway my cat care took me to Whaley Bridge, Chapel-en-le-Frith, and Birch Vale all three of these clients are once a day cat clients. As these are regular long term clients, I have started to just charge one extra visit to cover the easter weekend bank holiday surcharge so say one cat had five visits, three of which fell on Good Friday,  Easter Sunday and Bank Holiday easter Monday, I have added a visit, so charged for 6 visits, again this is because they are regular clients, new clients would be charged double time for easter.


So prices changed in 2019 so far clients have been fine about that, one daily visit is £8.00 and two daily visits is £13.00 for up to three cats, bank holidays will incur a extra charge.  Little Happy Cats offers a very reliable a very caring alternative to the cattery, caring for your cats at home.  I am fully insured, CRB checked, a trusted key holder and I have been caring for the cats in and around the High Peak since 2012. dog walker, puppy visits, pet sitting.

Just have two more weeks left at work before my holiday, I am off to Scotland for the last part of August we have never been that far up to Scotland its a almost 7 hour drive, looks amazing, lots of hills, and lochs, I am looking forward to a week of hiking with my dog and my other half.

And Rosie, two durations with juts few days off in-between, think I have been looking after Rosie for over two weeks, last Rosie visit is tomorrow. I love the cat side of the busiensss, I want a cat but I got a terrier dog first so I will have wait for sometime before that fantasy is realised.
