I  offer Dog Walking for owners who may be out at work all day , busy , someone elderly that would like companionship from an animal  but needs help with walking the dog 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 and which you recommend.

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.

Walking Route around Chadkirk

When looking on the internet a while back I found a great article on a walk around Chadkirk and here it is,   quoted from http://www.marple-uk.com/chadkirk.htm . At Aussie Dog Care we enjoyed this historic walk and the information on marple uk was fantastic on informing me about Chadkirk and the surrounding areas past.

“1)     On leaving the Car Park adjacent to Rose Hill station make your way    back to Stockport Road, cross the zebra crossing and turn left. After about 100 yards turn    right into Marple Hall Drive. Follow this road for about 400 yards until it makes a right    angle turn.

2)     Proceed straight ahead, past the site of Marple Hall. This stately mansion was where John Bradshawe lived as a    young man. In later life in his role as President of the High Court of Justice he signed    King Charles I death warrant.

Unfortunately in the    1950s, after the caretaker died, the vandals moved in and reduced the building to a ruin    in a matter of months.

The ground falls away steeply to your right    and although there are a number of paths leading down, follow the main path alongside the    edge of the playing fields of Marple Hall School.

Through the trees you will be able to see the    River Goyt in the valley. The Goyt and the Tame combine near Stockport to form the River    Mersey.

3)     The path eventually drops down to Dooley Lane. Turn right past the    Garden Centre and over Otterspool Bridge. This was the extreme boundary of the old forest    of Macclesfield. After a short distance turn right past the car park and follow the road    to Chadkirk Chapel.

Chadkirk has the distinction, unlike Marple, of being mentioned in the Domesday Book. The whole manor was 3 miles long and 11/2 miles wide of which most was woodland. The value was assessed to be worth 10 shillings.

4) Although legend has it that Chadkirk is associated with the 7th century missionary St Chad, the present Chapel dates back to the early 16th century although it has been restored on a    number of occasions since then. The building is now owned by Stockport Council and is open    to the public on Saturday and Sundays between 1.00 pm and 5.00 pm (admission free). There    is an audio/visual show giving the history of the chapel and St. Chad.

Adjoining the chapel is a farm which is also open to the public at certain times.

Follow the road past the farm. On the left as you go up the hill you will pass St Chad’s Well and an information board gives you details    of this historic site.

At the top of the hill some stone steps on the right take you up to the canal.

5) At this point you have the first choice of route. See below for alternative Route B.

On    reaching the canal turn right along the towpath. As you will see the canal has been cut    out of the steep hillside and its construction over 200 years ago is a monument to the skill of the canal engineers of the time with the limited resources available to them.

6) Opposite the canalside factory is a path on the right for alternative Route C. See bottom of page for details.

Shortly after passing the factory the canal enters the    308 yard Hyde Bank tunnel which although only being a short tunnel has no towpath    requiring horsedrawn narrowboats to be legged through. Take the path over the top passing    a farm before bearing right and following a steepish path down to rejoin the canal.

The canal continues its path along the side    of the hill until, after passing under a bridge, it enters a relatively narrow section for    a hundred yards or so. This was formerly Rose Hill tunnel which collapsed over 100 years    ago and rather than rebuild it they opened it up. In 1997 the embankment became unstable    and had to be strengthened, substantially, at a cost of £300,000.

Just ahead the canal crosses the    Marple Aqueduct. This magnificent structure built 200 years ago stands 100ft above the    river Goyt. In the early 1960s this structure was faced with closure when a severe frost    so badly damaged it that it was uncertain whether it would ever reopen to navigation. As a    consequence the flight of locks also fell into disrepair and it was only the sterling    efforts of a group of enthusiasts who formed the Peak Forest Canal Society that eventually    both the aqueduct and locks were saved.

7) Continue    alongside the locks until you reach lock 7 where you cross the bridge close to the bottom    gates and head for a footpath marked with two metal stakes.

This path, after about    150 yards, meets up with Winnington Road. Cross over and make your way up Grosvenor Road.    At the junction with Manor Road continue straight ahead to a footpath known as Seven    Stiles. The stiles have long gone but the footpath happily remains. Follow the path which    after about 200 yards crosses a road before leading down to another path. After a short    distance you follow the boundary of Marple Cricket Club.

Eventually the path terminates on Bowden    Lane. Turn right and over the railway bridge. Turn left onto Dale Road and follow this to    Stockport Road. The car park is just across the road.”

Tips on perfecting the dog walk!

Here at Aussie Dog Care we care about your dog as much as you , the owner , does so if you are having trouble walking your dog here are some of Cesar Millian’s Top Tips on dog walking:

“1. Be aware of your energy and body language while walking  dog.

Make sure you are communicating a message that says, ‘I am the pack leader!’ Keep your head up and your shoulders back. Think positive thoughts and  envision the dog walk going well. You might be surprised at the results.

2. Keep the dog leash short, but not tight.

You’ve heard me tell this to people on the show time and time again. This  simple tip can save you a lot of headache. Flexi-leashes and other longer  leashes make it harder for you to communicate with your dog and easier for her  to go wherever she wants. But, don’t forget, it’s also important to keep the dog  leash loose. If you make a correction following a problem behavior, it should be  quick, and then the dog leash should be returned to the relaxed state.

3. Position the dog collar at the top of the neck.

If you’ve ever seen a sledding dog, you’ll notice that the harness is around  the lower part of the dog’s neck, near the shoulders. Why? This is where the  dog’s pulling power is located. You’re actually helping your dog to pull you  around if you have the collar placed there. Instead, position it on the upper  neck, which is the most sensitive area. If you’re having trouble keeping the  collar in the correct spot, check out my Illusion collar, which is designed to keep the collar  from slipping.

4. Film the dog walk.

Ask a friend or family member to film you walking the dog. It may be easier  to see your problem areas after the fact. What’s your posture like? How do you  react when your dog misbehaves? Are you putting tension on the dog leash? These  are the types of things to look for while you watch. If you don’t have access to  a camera, ask someone to walk with you and then share what they noticed.

5. Enlist the help of balanced dogs.

If your dog barks or lunges at other dogs that you pass on the walk, take  time to do just that activity with another dog you trust. That way, you can  practice remaining calm and correcting your dog. Then, when the dog problem  arises when you’re not expecting it, you’ll feel better able to handle it, and  that confidence will be communicated to your dog.

6. Practice the walk!

You and your dog won’t get better if you don’t go out there and do it!  Celebrate every success along the way. Learn from the bad days, but don’t dwell  on them. And then one day, you’ll find you’ve done it! You’ve mastered the  walk!”
