Mucky Hounds Dog Walking - Dog Walker in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire
Mucky Hounds Dog Walking are a Buckinghamshire company based in Aylesbury, however we are able to provide our services beyond Aylesbury. We cover much of the north of the county including Aylesbury, Wendover, Princes Risborough, Saunderton, Stoke Mandeville and many others.
We provide both walking and home visiting services.
We can walk your dog/dogs during the day whilst you are out or help with an extra walk during the week to help tire your dog out and to keep them happy and healthy. We can offer individual or group walks depending on your dogs' needs.
Mucky Hounds is run by myself (Tim Pritchard). I am a massive animal lover and have had dogs all of my life for nearly 35 years, so I am a very experienced dog owner and understand how much of an important part of the family they are. I also have ferrets and have been the chairman of a local ferret club, I was also part of a ferret exhibitor group.
Since leaving university in 2004 I have worked for the police, a special needs school and for the NHS where I worked as a clinician in a specialist team with learning disabled children with complex mental health and challenging behaviour. I have also been a manager in the pet retail industry, where I would offer support in relation to pet nutrition.
I set up Mucky Hounds so I can follow my desire to work with dogs whom I believe are truly wonderful and fascinating animals. In my desire to truly learn about and understand dogs even further I am currently studying for a Level 5 Advanced Diploma In Canine Behaviour. This means I understand how important a calm and consistent approach when working with dogs is.
It is my desire to do the very best for the dogs I work with and am willing to offer any help that I can to my clients with regards to dog ownership, or help them find someone who can. I am CRB/DBS checked and have public liability insurance. Due to my course of study there are certain professional standards that I must adhere to at all times.
We provide both walking and home visiting services. We can walk your dog/dogs during the day whilst you are out or help with an extra walk during the week to help tire your dog out and to keep them happy and healthy. We can offer individual or group walks depending on your dogs' needs. With our home visiting service we can help prevent boredom and loneliness by providing a bit of company for your dog during the day.
An individual walk is where we will take your dog out for a walk on their own so all the time and attention will be given to your dog whilst on the walk. Any favourite toys such as balls or rope toys can be taken to be played with. Obviously if you have more than one dog in your family we accommodate walking all of your dogs.
A group walk is where your dog will be able to have regular dog friends, whom they can socialise and play with. We are insured for up to 6 dogs at a time, however it is likely that a group walk will have 2-3 dogs so that more time and attention can be given to each dog. Obviously we would need to meet you and your dog first to establish which group will have the best dogs to make friends with your dog.
If you are interested in any of the services we offer at Mucky Hounds, or have any questions at all then please phone me or send me an email.
