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 47 years of my life, I currently have a gorgeous 13 year old Golden Retriever, four cats and a pet duck. 

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, as I believe taking several 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.

Higham Ferrers and Rushden dog walking

We are Higham & Rushden Walkies, A fully CRB checked Rushden dog walking service located on Fitzwilliam Leys, Higham Ferrers from where we cover Rushden, Higham, Stanwick, Irthlingborough and surrounding villages. We are different to other dog walkers as we 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 we have your written consent to let them off the lead, we try to walk in a mixture of environments and all one hour walks will include some countryside walking.

At our free initial meeting with you we 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.
