Dog Walking

A new addition to Mind My Paws

You might have noticed a lack of stories on my blog for a few months. I'm happy to report that this has been due to being so busy that I haven't had time to write anything. Excuses I know, but it's true.
 
So I am very happy to announce that I have found the perfect person to join Mind My Paws to help out with the dog walking side of the business. Stef, one of my very first clients, has joined us on a part time basis.
 
I have been thinking about needing to find an extra pair of feet for a while now, but wondered how I would be able to trust anyone else with any of my dogs.

Jazz is loving Mind My Paws Doggy Day Care in Twyford

It's about time I introduced you to Jazz, who joined Mind My Paws doggy day care in February. Her owners, Jo and Matt, had always wanted a dog but couldn't see how they could have one as they both have a very busy working schedule. Then they found me! So they set about finding their perfect pooch - and succeeded!
 
They picked the 8 month old working labrador up from the breeder, on a recommendation from a friend, who had one of the pups from the same litter.
 
I went to meet her the day before she was due to start day care with me.

Temporary dog walking in and around Twyford for Clicquot

Occasionally I get enquiries from people who are looking for someone to walk their dog for a week or two as they are unable to, for various reasons. I rarely write about these dogs as life just seems to fly by and before I know it, I am no longer walking them. But I had to stop and write about my most recent temporary pup. For the last three weeks, Clicquot, the beautiful black labrador, has been part of my 11am pack.
 
I met with her and her owner for half an hour and then took Clicquot straight out with my other dogs that day.

Bart and Lisa beagles join Mind my Paws Twyford dog walking schedule

Beagles are arguably the cutest dogs out there - and I've been waiting for nine months to get one on my books - then TWO come along at once! Bart and Lisa have recently moved back from Holland with their family and are back in their original home of Twyford.
 
Bart is four and Lisa is three. When I went to meet them, their owner told me that both of them had a bad experience with big dogs when they were very young and as a result both tended to fall on the scared side when meeting other dogs.

Dog walking in Twyford, Henley and Binfield

As I look over my blog posts, I realise that there are so many of my dogs that I haven't introduced you to yet! Aside from my boarders, it's time to meet my regular walkies pups.
 
Of course if you 'like' myFacebook page, you might have already seen the pictures of my growing 'client base'.
 
My walking schedule is now pretty much set in stone (although there is always room for maneuver). I do my first walk of the day with Saska the staffie in Twyford. She is 12 years old and her owner would prefer her to be walked alone, so three days a week, we go for a half hour walk together.

Phoebe, pug dog from Sonning joins Doggy Day Care

When I got a call from Julie, who told me she was moving from Sheffield to Sonning and was looking for someone to look after her 14 month old pug dog, Phoebe, I was so excited - pugs are (one of) my favourite breeds! So I arranged to meet up with them as soon as they arrived in Sonning.
 
Phoebe enrolled in Mind My Paws doggy day care three weeks ago, and I have completely and utterly fallen in love with her! She is the cutest little thing with the biggest personality. She comes to me three days a week and also boarded with us this weekend.

Dudley and dog walking in Henley on Thames

Dudley and his family have moved from Toronto, Canada back to the UK, so he is my first official foreigner. Thankfully he seems to understand my Scottish accent!
 
Having had a major shoulder operation in November last year, Dudley is now fully recovered and ready to get back out there and restore his fitness levels - which is where I come in.
 
Living slap bang in the middle of woods just outside Henley on Thames, we are spoilt for our choice of walks. There are woods in all directions and the Thames is within walking distance too.

Aileen welcomes Frankie to her weekly dog walking service in Henley on Thames

Frankie is the newest addition to my dog walking service in Henley on Thames. This one year old is full of character and even although she is tiny, she is strong andknows exactly what she wants. She is keen to play with other dogs and is a constant source of entertainment. Her little legs take her happily on our hour long walks easily and she looks up at me at the end as if to say 'what is that it?'
 
The weather is starting to get nicer, so we have plenty of beautiful walks ahead for us and all our other dogs.

Sunday dog walking in Twyford

Not the sunniest day for a Sunday morning walk - but Winston doesn't care what the weather's like!  His owners say he's not too good with other dogs so it's best to keep him on his lead the whole time. Off we go for a nice long walk in the soggy courtryside between Binfield and Twyford. We pass a few other dogs on the way, there's a bit of grizzle (not just from Winston!) but nothing to worry about. Winston is a happy, lovely dog and it is a pleasure to walk him.
