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 offer a more individual dog walking service, I don't group walk dogs!

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 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 group walk dogs 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 with one other dog they get the full attention of the walker. I do not transport your dogs, all walks start from your home. 

I currently have time for a couple more dogs in the afternoons, either on a daily walk or on a more casual basis. 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.

I'm DBS 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 or text me to arrange this.

Telephone/text 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 never group walk dogs or transport them.

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.
