Soggy Doggies and Mucky Pups

Winter is officially here. We have had lots of very heavy down pours and muddy puddle adventures out on group walks and daycare this week… It has been so much fun.

More cold and wet days means wet and muddy dogs! In order for us to give you the best service possible, please ensure that your dog is winter ready.

On Walks
Coat and fleeces: For very wet and cold days a waterproof coat or fleece (like an Aquafleece) would be great. This will reduce how wet and cold they get and ensure they aren’t left damp after their walk. We will always dry your dog as much as we can but won’t be able to get them totally dry if they are soaked through.

Lights, torches and high viz coats and collars: If your dog has an early or late walk we need to ensure they are visible to us and to traffic (just in case). They will not be let off lead in the dark.

Post Walks
Washing instructions: If you your dog needs a little wash- please update the washing instructions in your account so we know how you would like us to clean your dog, be it outside with a hose, in the bathroom or just to dry them and not wash at all.

Towels: We do carry towels in the cars to ensure the dogs get an immediate post walk dry but to help us look after your dog please leave us additional towels with their walking equipment.

Routine: If you would like us to leave your dog in a different location if they are damp, please let us know where and what you would like us to do with their wet equipment. We will leave a light or lamp on so they aren’t in the dark until you get home

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in contact.
