Stretch Their Legs is a dog walking and animal services provider based in Wellington, Somerset. I am passionate about animals and their care, and recognise that with the busy lives of today everyone needs a little help - be it walking their dog or making sure their small furries have fresh food and water. I can provide all of these services and more. I am experienced with all kinds of domestic animal pet care from hamsters and mice to cats and dogs, and everything in between, even some exotics like pygmy hedgehogs and snakes.
I understand how important it is to have implicit trust in your dog walker, we are taking care of a family member after all! I can provide solo and group walks (limited to 4 dogs) and always try to take them somewhere varied and interesting.
I know that every dog has its own personality, some are playful, some are aloof, some are confident explorers and some have fear and anxiety issues. I have experience with multiple types of dog personalities, especially anxious and reactive dogs and do everything I can to accommodate all dogs with regard to where, when and with whom I walk them. Getting the right mix of dogs on a walk is vitally important to ensure safety and that everyone has a good time.
To maintain high standards as a dog walker I’m fully insured, DBS checked and level 2 qualified in Canine First Aid. I also believe in keeping up to date with legislation and training and am constantly updating my knowledge with training and seminars.
As well as providing the following services, I recognise that everyone is an individual and will have requirements that may not fit these services exactly. Please contact me to discuss your circumstances and I will try to arrange a bespoke package for you.
Dogs are incredibly intelligent and social animals and it is important they receive exercise and stimulation every day to keep them fit, happy and healthy. This is not always possible with the pressures of everyday life and this is where a dog walker comes in.
It’s inevitable that at some point you will need to be away from home for longer than normal periods of time. As a pet owner, it’s a concern to leave your pets and you will want the best care for them in your absence. I provide a drop-in service for all animals to make sure they are happy and comfortable while you can’t be with them.
