Sophie's Dog Walking in West Drayton
Only the best for your doggo
Meet Sophie. Dog Walker Extraordinaire
Fully Insured Dog Walking
Your dog's safety and happiness is our top priority, but for that extra level of protection in case anything should ever happen, we are fully insured for dog walking on or off the lead.
Public liability insurance is there in case your dog causes any damage or bites someone - though we do ask how well behaved your dogs are, and it is your responsibility to inform us of any behavioural issues they may have. We want you and your dog to have the best experience with us, and that starts with great communication.
For the love of dogs
Your dog is probably your best friend, just like my dog Milo, and we want the best for them.
Whether you work long shifts, or you don't have the energy or time to give your dog the exercise they need - we are here to help.
As the days get shorter and it gets dark early, and the weather is miserable, it's understandable that you may be reluctant to go out for a walk. But your dog's health is tied to how much exercise it gets, and dogs need to walk and run to help with every aspect of their health. And I am happy to help when you need it.
For Big Dogs, Or Small Dogs. For All Dogs.
We are happy to walk dogs of all sizes, and my dog, Milo, is reasonably large as he is a German Shepherd x Labrador. But we have walked Cockapoos, Jack Russel, Labrador, French Bulldog, Cocker Spaniel, Dachshund, Staffordshire Bull Terrier, Border Collie, Chihuahua, German Shepherd, Golden Retriever, Shih Tzu, Pug, Yorkshire Terrier, Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Labradoodle, Beagle, Springer Spaniel, Pomeranians and much more.
What Exactly Does Dog Walking Include and Entail?
Hi, I'm Sophie, and this is all about your most precious friend - your dog. I am an experienced dog walker and have grown up with dogs, as my family has had dogs all my life. As soon as I could, I got my own dog, my best friend Milo. As a dog owner, I know that every dog is different, with different personalities, behaviours, and needs - which is why I tailor my services to your dogs' requirements. Some dogs like walking with other dogs, and some don't. I can bring my own dog Milo, or walk one-on-one. Some dogs like playing, and others prefer an interesting walk.
If you are looking for local dog walkers around Hillingdon, then we are happy to help.
How it Works
Contact me using the form, as it includes some space for information about your dogs loves and requirements. It helps me understand what you are looking for, and how I can help.
If you think I'll be a good fit, I meet your precious doggo so they are familiar with me in a safe environment. We can discuss any other relevant information that you think is important.
Schedule a Date!
It's time to setup our first dog walk, or schedule repeating walks. We are happy to arrange one-off walks, or regular daily, weekly, or monthly walks. Feel free to get in touch to discuss.
Dog Walking FAQ
Do you walk one dog or multiple dogs at once?
Some dog walkers walk multiple dogs at once, which is fine if you want a way for your dog to socialise with other dogs, or get used to interacting with other similar dogs. But often when you see large group walks, the walk isn't tailored to each dog, but rather an average of them all. Some dogs prefer a slow walk and sniff, and others prefer an energetic, fast-paced brisk walk and we are happy to help with both types.
The best dog walkers know that the walk has to fit the dog, and the best way to do that is to walk only one dog at a time or in small groups of similar dogs. It depends on what you and your dog prefers.
Do you collect my dog and drop them back?
With most of my clients, I collect their dogs and return them home once I have finished the dog walk. Often times they will be out and work, and I will visit during that time as a great way to break up your dog's day and make it more interesting. Whatever I can do to make your dog's day better 🙂
As pet owners, we always struggle to leave our pets to go to work, so it's great when you have the peace of mind that someone will check on them halfway through the day. Rest easy, we are here to help. As a dog owner myself, I understand the importance of a good dog walker. And having a dog walker visit during the day is the perfect way to give you peace of mind in an affordable way that also greatly improves the morale and mood of your best friend.
Do you offer a pet sitting service?
We are currently working on offering pet-sitting services, but currently, we only offer it to our existing dog walking customers. If you are looking for a pet sitter feel free to contact me and I'll see what I can do. But as a general rule, we currently don't offer dog sitter services.
Which areas do you cover?
I cover most of Hillingdon and the surrounding areas including Uxbridge, West Drayton, Yiewsley, Hayes, Hillingdon, Iver and surrounding areas. If you are unsure, then just ask.
Are you an insured dog walker?
Yes, I am fully insured to walk dogs on or off the lead. Which is a comfort to all pet parents. When I have my initial consultation, it is helpful to know of any behavioural problems. If you are looking for a reliable dog walker, then look no further.
Where do you walk dogs?
As part of the introduction, I will find out all about your dog. If they prefer short or long dog walks, fast-paced, or slow. I will also tend to walk them in local areas including nearby parks or fields that I am familiar with, but I am also open to suggestions. Our dog walking can be completely dedicated to the style of walk your dog wants. But we do prefer to spend time with your dog, rather than travelling to and from the walk.
Do you walk all dogs?
We walk all dog breeds and all sizes of curious canines. My own dog is a Labrador x German Shepherd so he is on the larger size. I am used to larger, and smaller animals, and am happy to walk and and all 🙂
Do you offer Puppy Visits & Walks?
Once they are able to go outdoors for propper walks, we will take them on short walks, building up to longer walks with their ability level. Please get in touch for more information.
