Rushden & Higham Ferrers Dog Walking & Pet visits

One to one dog walker

Hello I'm Simon and I own and operate Higham & Rushden Walkies, I'm a professional dog walker based in Higham Ferrers. I walk dogs mainly in Higham Ferrers but also cover Rushden. I offer an individual dog walking service, I don't group walk dogs!

 I've been around dogs and cats all of my life, I currently have a gorgeous Golden Retriever called Lucy. I also have lots of expereince with chickens and ducks. 

You can be sure of a professional and friendly service where I put you and your pets first. Your dogs will not be walked with any other dogs. I do not transport your dogs, all walks start from your home. 

All hour long walks include some countryside or park sections. I treat every dog the same way as I'd treat my own, which includes cuddles at the end of the walk and drying wet paws.

I have lots of experience with large breed dogs as well as smaller breeds, the largest dogs I have walked are two Czechoslavakian wolf dogs which when standing on their hind legs are as tall as me, at the other end of the scale is little Eddie, a Yorkshire Terrier with a big personality. Please note I will not walk agressive dogs or those with severe behaviour issues.

I'm DBS checked and insured as well as being trained in first aid.

As well as dog walking I also offer home visits for hens/ducks/cats and other small animals. 

Green dog walking

Protecting the environment is important to me, for that reason travel between dogs is by environmentally friendly electric bicycle rather than by car or van. I use compostable dog waste bags to reduce plastic in landfill.

Hello, I'm Simon, the chief dog walker at Higham and Rushden walkies. I set up my dog walking business in 2017 when my own dog Misty no longer wanted long walks due to her old age, I started with just one dog who I walked for an hour a day. I now spend my weekdays walking dogs all day and consider myself lucky to combine my love of the outdoors with my love of dogs for the perfect job! 

I now have a new dog of my own, Lucy, shes's a six year old Golden Retriever. Lucy is in the photo above running through the crops.

I'm pictured with Cooper, a gorgeous Vizla I walk across farm fields. He is far better looking than me and can outrun me too. 

In case you're wondering, I walk about 15 miles a day and get through shoes very quickly! 

Some of the dogs I walk

Higham Ferrers and Rushden dog walking

I am Higham & Rushden Walkies, A fully CRB checked Rushden dog walking service located in Higham Ferrers .
I’m different to other dog walkers as I never group walk dogs or transport them. Your dogs are not walked with any other dogs.

Dogs are kept on the lead during the walk unless I have your consent to let them off the lead, I try to walk in a mixture of environments and all one hour walks will include some countryside walking.

At the free initial meeting with you I will get to know your dog and discover things like how you dog gets on with other dogs, children and other animals we might encounter on a walk.
