Professional Dog Walking based in Stockport

Dog Walking

I offer Dog Walking for owners who may be out at work all day , busy , someone elderly that would like companionship but needs help with walking or if you just feel like going out all day for relaxation without the dog !

At Aussie Dog Care I promote myself in being a friendly , reliable and professional dog walker. I will always try to walk your dog in an area that they  know and is suitable for the dog

We aim to give the right amount exercise desired by the breed making sure your dog is happy and tired when you come back home . At Aussie Dog Care we also tailor all walks to what you as an owner desire for you dogs.

On an ordinary Aussie Dog Care walk we will collect your dog from your home at a time you have given and walk for the specific time you have asked for perhaps longer. If your dog is wet or muddy I will dry all dogs as no muddy paw prints are left on the floor!

Aussie Dog Care as a business promotes itself in being a small family run business that walks local around Romiley. Dogs are never walked in a pack as I totally disagree with this method of walking.

Staying Safe on Dog Walks

At Aussie Dog Care safety is key and on walks dogs always come first! Here are some key tips whilst dog walking from Your Dog.

“Our own safety and well-being often takes second place to our dogs when out on walks, but while such concern is understandable, it’s not always wise. There can be many potential dangers lying in wait and putting yourself first isn’t being selfish but sensible – but safe. After all, if you’re safe it’s more likely your pet will be too. Obviously there is no way you can completely guarantee your safety but there are a number of ways in which you can certainly minimize the risks.

Dress for the occasion

No matter how keen your dog id to go for a walk, take time to kit yourself out properly before leaving, Sensible footwear is vital to help keep your balance if your dog suddenly pulls on the lead as well as when tackling loose, wet or muddy surfaces, even if your just popping out for a short stroll you might need to run in an emergency.

Wear appropriate clothes, bearing in mind that the weather can change dramatically in some places, particularly in mountainous or moorland areas. If you are going to be out in the dark or when it is dul or misty, don’t just kit your dog out in high vis gear, wear it yourself -if nothing else it will ensure that joggers using the same paths don’t collide with you.

When you dog is running loose put his lead in your pocket or hold it in your hand – don’t loop it around your neck where it could be grabbed by someone. Before you go Get a weather report before setting out and be prepared to disappoint your dog by either turning back or taking a safe, shouter route if conditions deteriorate. When out in milder, more remote regions pack a rucksack with extra survival kit in case of an emergency. No matter where you’re going always take your mobile (make sure it is fully charged) and whistle just in case you need to call for help or to alert rescuers to your position. And although it seems obvious, an often neglected precaution is simply to tell someone where you’re going and how long you expect to be, even if your just planning to go around the block.

Stay alert

Chatting on your mobile or wearing headphones will make it easier for others to sneak up on you and you lack of concentration could even single you out as a tempting target for would-be attackers. Don’t daydream – as well as watching what your dog is up to and keeping an eye out for potential problems from other walkers and dogs, try to be aware of where you’re putting your feet. If you stumble down a pot hole, trip over a tree root or miss your step on rutted ground you could twist your ankle or worse. Make sure your vision isn’t impared by a hood-they are warm but restrict peripheral vision and you have to turn your whole body instead of just your head to glance behind you. If it’s chilly or wet wear a separate hat instead.

Livestock and wildlife

Although walking in the countryside is statistically safer than in the city, don’t be complacent in open areas. By law you must control your dog so that he doesn’t scare, worry or disturb farm animals or wildlife. On most areas of open country and common land you should keep your dog on a fixed lead no longer than 6ft long between March 1 and July 31 (the season for all ground nesting birds) and at all times of the year near livestock. Livestock can sometimes behave unpredictably, particularly cattle. Cows with calves may become aggressive if they think their young are threatened, while young cattle are often inquisitive and may gallop up to you.

Take sensible precautions – Never walk between a cow and her calf, don’t shout or wave sticks at them and head for the nearest exit if you feel threatened. If necessary let your dog loose while you make your escape – the cow is likely to loose interest in you and your dog can run faster. Wildlife can equally be protective of their young – hinds can be aggressive at calving time and there has been reports of them charging dogs and walkers.

And don’t forget to…

  • Use up to date maps, know how to read them and use a compass.
  • Take advice or stick to marked paths in areas where there are bogs and quicksands.
  • Check whether restrictions are in place before exercising your right to roam.
  • Never ignore warning signs.
  • Exercise care when crossing fast-flowing steams particularly after heavy rains when water levels can rise rapidly and flash floods can occur.
  • Avoid dark, poorly lit alleyways and paths during early morning or late night walks. Use pavements where possible; if there isn’t one , walk on the side of the road facing oncoming traffic , crossing to the other side on right hand bends.”
