Good bye good March 2020.

So a lot has happened for Little Happy Hounds since my last post and indeed  the world. Last week I ceased working following Government advice and went into lockdown to stay safe and stop the spread of the Corona Virus pandemic. 

Annoyingly and perhaps ironically,  business was booming, even in the face of all the new dog walkers in their bright shinny branded vans, everywhere I turn there is a dog walker these days, we even have dog walkers from miles away in different counties bringing their dog clients into Derbyshire to gain from the high peak councils non restrictive rules about how many dogs you can take out at anyone time,  these businesses are separate from mine as they about financial gain and maximising profits, I am about looking after dogs going on long walks, I never ever make a decision with money in mind !! I feel like my clients are peoples children and not a commodity item.

I was doing really well through word of mouth clients where recommending me to friends but also another dog walker also got me a new regular dog walking client, greatly appreciated, we had a new puppy, new dog walking clients several new cat sitting clients and then just like that I was stopped in my tracks by lock down. 

So most the dog walkers I know and follow have ceased operation, locally but also up and down the UK, with just a few still going, it was predictable to see who would still keep going. I have a key worker on my books, however most my clients where working from home, so following on what the government said I closed down, two Mondays ago. Beyond that I was just not comfortable, going from peoples homes, taking the dogs out and running into people getting to close. The other issue is I have lost a lot of quiet dogs walking spots, for various reasons, I keep seeing  dog walkers on social media still walking round parts of the Goyt Valley which are now strictly no dogs off leads till 31st of July for ground nesting birds,  these dog walkers with their huge groups of dogs all off leads !!! I personally don’t think the birds need 100s 100s 100s of acres of land, eccles pike the entire Goyt Valley,  not to mention Castle Naze which is also permanently has a no dog rule, but rules are rules at the end of the day, so for me to be following this rule struggling with my dogs with where to go and then the newbies coming along and just ignoring the rules, discounting it, its not fair but much  worse than that its just so soul destroying, ours is a trade that needs much more stricter rules.  In this scenario I always have to follow my own advice if I don’t rate the dog walker I stay off their social media, its so much easier that way,  I personally rate and am friends with lots of local dog walkers, which is great, however you cant rate and like everyone !! 

I do understand why some people have kept going, with the Government not helping self employed people until June !  I totally get why some people have had to keep going, for me I am married, we own our house outright my partner has a good job, I have savings for a few months at least ,so for me to carry on walking would of been unethical and a bit greedy, beyond all of that I needed a break ! 

So the uncertainty is an issue, even if Little Happy Hounds comes back after all of this I predict a quiet spell, I know some of my clients have been given their redundancy notice so I am uncertain of firstly when we will be coming back, secondly if I am coming back and  thirdly if I do comeback how the economy might be and how many clients I may loose. The enormity of the situation will have ramifications for all of us for many months too come. So we have no idea how long we will all be in lockdown for I think the news said their are signs the virus spreading is slowing down in the UK, this is week two of lockdown, I know Wuhan China were all this began, had a much more stricter lockdown but the entire place was closed for six weeks !! 

My holiday plans this year have all gone up in smoke of course, I was suppose to be going to Whitby next week we booked a beautiful cottage and we where going away to celebrate my fortieth birthday’ which was last week’ so we have now   rescheduled the cottage for September. I wanted to see that East Yorkshire coast line I have  never been, to Whitby and Robinhoods Bay, spend a week walking near the coast total bliss my dog will love it.  I now plan to cancel my other weeks off in July and August  and just take the week of in September! 

So yes what a year 2020 has been,  as a dog walker in the almost eight years of existence this is by far the worse thing to ever of happened. My heart goes out to the families of the 1000s of people this virus has taken, hope we will beat this and have a vaccine before to long ! So I will leave this here, stay safe everyone, I will be updating my facebook pages and Instagram ! Be sure to find our little happy hounds page !

Woof Woof Wednesday & Whiskers Wednesday.

what a day and too think I am quiet as its half term and at least six dog walking clients are off today for the Half term. I have done three cat sitting visits for 8 cats and walked four dogs, five with my own dog. I usually do three one hour walks on a Wednesday however today I was able to just do one, collecting dogs from Chapel-en-le-Frith, Chinley, New Mills and Birch Vale and doing the walk in Hayfield. We did a slightly longer walk and it was great weathers was dry and strangely mild. Love parts of Hayfield as it can be very dog friendly, if you no the places that are sheep free, we get a lot of tourists there so I am always careful and mindful when I take a group of dogs walking there.  Today we had my dog a Shih Tzu x Yorkie cross, Monty a Westie x Yorkie cross, Betty a Cavachon, Oscar a Cavapoo and Fritz a miniature Schnauzer.

We had cat sitting gigs today in Chapel-en-le-Frith, New Mills and Birch Vale, including our new cat sitting clients Arthur Sheba Coco and Tinkerbell, I am loving caring for these new clients, Sheba is the most beautiful cat I have ever seen, she is half Persian and has come too High Peak from the Middle East ! Typical Wednesday for me, awesome long dog nature walk, views, hills, happy hounds off leads, and caring for a bevy of lovely cats. Pictures below are from today. Little Happy Hounds, dog walker, pet care services Whaley Bridge, Derbyshire.

Scrappy loves the Goyt Valley

So at the weekend one of my favourite places too take my dog is Fox Low Edge, the Goyt Valley, the Goyt Valley is in-between between Whaley Bridge and Buxton, the Peak District national park. For a dog friendly walk it is great, there are no sheep or cows up there and we are out of nesting season, so he was off lead from the minute we left the car. We had lots of autumn sunshine and I managed to take a few great pics of my dog Scrappy, he’s looking great, had his teeth cleaned last week, his fur trimmed and bathed this weekend bless him I can’t believe he is almost 9 years old still runs around like a puppy, he is a Shorkie, cross breed of a Shih Tzu  and Yorkie.

Lyme Dog

So we have had some lovely walks this weekend, and today happy Monday, we went to Lyme Park on Saturday, the Goyt Valley Sunday and today, I Eccles Pike for our first dog walk and Lantern Pike for our second. 

So Saturday was dog friendly day for the gardens of Lyme Hall Lyme Park Disley. I had my dog walking client booked in Millie the labradoodle and my friends came with their rottie Holly, so we had three dogs, four adults we did the hill and the cage so the dogs had lots of time off lead. The gardens are strictly dogs on leads, it was great we visited the orangery. I highly recommend a day out at Lyme Park gardens with your pooch link below , pics are from that walk.

Dog Walker High Peak

With my dog “nature” walks, I offer my dogs time spent in nature, on and off leads, varied terrains, in all weathers. I walk in small groups, all my clients are socialised, and good with other dogs. I only have one client who can not be off the lead, with my younger clients, I often work on recall, and praise based training.

As I have lots of clients in Whaley Bridge, Chinley, Chapel, New Mills and Birch Vale, we tend to go walking in these areas, I often take the dogs for a steep hilly woodland walk in Hayfield, that I know. Around Whaley Bridge we often to go to Toddbrook Reservoir, Chinley Churn, Wash, Eccles Pike, Goyt Valley, and many other locations. As ever I try and avoid crowds, roads and sheep and cows with my clients,

jabba, jackson !

Little Happy Cats.

As ever its been a busy time for Little Happy Cats, the pet sitting side of Little Happy Hounds. Last week we cared for Digi, a cat I have looked after twice before, in New Mills and I cat visited Shoga and Alba, new cat clients, who live on a canal boat! 

Shoga

Shoga

Alba

Alba

Both got just the one visit a day, Digi goes out so has no litter tray he just needed dry biscuits, Shoga and Alba were staying for the duration so had a little tray, and they needed their food measured out and i was more than happy to follow instructions like this, as this is very much a personalised bespoke service, I always try and meet everyones individual requirements.

Link below is for a photo album on our facebook page, as the majority of my business is dog walking and therefore picturs of our dog clients onw alks tend to take over the facbook page and my cats get lost, so i just wanted to highlight the other caring service we provide. Little Happy Cats.
