Rushden & Higham Ferrers Dog Walking & Pet Sitting

Hello I'm Simon and I own and operate Higham & Rushden Walkies, I'm a professional dog walker and pet sitter based in Higham Ferrers. I walk dogs in Higham Ferrers and Rushden.

I have many years experience with dogs, as well as looking after small animals including cats, rabbits, chickens and ducks. I've been around dogs and cats all of my life, I currently have a gorgeous 20 month old Golden Retriever called Lucy.

You can be sure of a professional and friendly service where I put you and your pets first. I will never walk more than two dogs together at a time (unless from the same household), as I believe taking several unrelated dogs out together places more stress on them and isn't best for the dog. By walking them individually, or as a pair each dog gets the full attention of the walker. I do not transport your dogs, all walks start from your home. 

I currently have space for a couple more dogs, either on a daily walk or on a more casual basis. All hour long walks include some countryside sections. I treat every dog the same way as I'd treat my own, which includes cuddles at the start at end of the walk.

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

The first step to me walking your dog is for me to come and meet you both, please give me a call to arrange this.

Telephone 07595 362270.

Higham Ferrers and Rushden dog walking

I am Higham & Rushden Walkies, A fully CRB checked Rushden dog walking service located in Higham Ferrers from where I cover Rushden, Higham, Stanwick, Irthlingborough and surrounding villages. I’m different to other dog walkers as I only ever walk a maximum of two dogs at a time and do not transport dogs to cut down on stress.

Dogs are kept on the lead during the walk unless I have your written 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.
