Our dog walking service provides fantastic exercise for your dog, in the best dog walking places around the City. It’s more than just exercise though – it’s mental stimulation and socialisation, in the company of other friendly and like-minded dogs – which benefits most dogs tremendously. It also results in a tired and happy dog, calm when you come home from work and not demanding that you immediately take him or her out for another walk. Our team are all really experienced dog handlers, who understand the individual needs of individual dogs, and whose aim in life is to give your dog the best possible Petpals experience. We are completely confident that you and your dog will love our service.
If you’re not sure whether your dog will enjoy the company of other dogs, talk to us. We can work with you to introduce your dog to others in a way which is stress free and safe. For those dogs who are sure they only like their own company, we also offer a one to one walking service. Let us know if you want to talk to us about this.

Express Dog Walking Service/Elderly Dog Visits
Our express dog walk/visit allows your dog to stretch their legs and have a comfort break.
It allows your dog to either have a short walk in the local area or to be let out into the garden, as required. We can also do a quick clean-up for your elderly dog should it be necessary.
This ensures that your dog is happy, and comfortable and helps them settle until you return home. We can also feed your dog should you need us to.
