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, 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. I will never group walk dogs, 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. 

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'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. 



Telephone/text 07595 362270.

My services

Dog walking is available at £12 per hour. I never walk more than two unrelated dogs together and often your dog will get a one to one walk. 

Half hour walks are available at £7.50 in Higham Ferrers only. 

Additional dogs from the same household £1.50 each.

Puppy visits £6 for 20 minutes or two 20 minute visits a day for £10.

Cat/hens/rabbits/small animals 15 minutes visit/feed £5 per visit (ideal for when you're away on holiday).





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 all my weekdays outside 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 three year old Golden Retriever who often gets to come on walks with another golden retriever I walk, there has to be some perks to being the bosses dog! Lucy is in the photo above running through the crops.

On the left 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 14 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 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.
