Dog Walking & Pet Sitting Service
and thank you for visiting the web page for “Walk This Way”. A
company established in early 2012 to accommodate the requirements of
your busy lifestyle and aid your pets daily requirements when you are
away, at work, poorly or just need a break from it all.
My name is Karen and I run “Walk This Way”. I have a yellow Labrador and 2 cats and know how stressful it can be to juggle work commitments, social and pleasure time. That’s why “Walk This Way” is here to help no matter how regular or occasionally “Walk This Way’s” services are required.
“Walk This Way” offers a pet sitting and dog walking service in Hertfordshire and surrounding areas. Based in Bovingdon and able to cover areas including Berkhamsted, Chesham, Hemel Hempstead, Boxmoor, Kings Langley and anything in between.
Are you unable to walk your dog due to your current circumstances changing or just out for the day, commitments at work, convalescing after an operation or illness? Whatever the reason let “Walk This Way” ease your stress and do it for you!
Whatever the weather, “Walk This Way” are committed to exercising your pet. We will collect your beloved dog and take him/her for a fun walk on a designated route (this ensures you know the terrain and area they are in). Dogs can benefit greatly from a long, energetic fun walk and are then less likely to develop behavioural problems, as this ensures they are released from boredom and isolation. All dogs benefit from exercise mentally and physically after all dogs are pack animals and sociable creatures just like us.Your dog will receive individual attention as well as the companionship of other dogs who like nothing more than exercising in parks, open fields or woodland and once the walk is completed “Walk This Way” will ensure that your pet is returned to your home towel dried and ready to be welcomed back into the home. Each walk lasts for around one hour; you have the option of morning, lunch time or afternoon.
If you wish your dog to be walked on an individual basis this is not a problem and older dogs and puppies can be given exercise at a pace more suitable to their ability.
Sitting / Home Visits
This Way” offer’s a friendly, reliable pet sitting service, which
allows your pets to stay in their own home and surroundings whilst
you are away, whether it is for your annual holiday, a long weekend
away or if you are being hospitalised I am able to care for your pets
and property. Your beloved pets will thrive in their own environment
and are generally much happier with their own creature comforts
around them. On a visit your pet will be feed its normal food, fresh
water given, litter trays cleaned then lots of fuss and cuddles
before we leave. A standard visit lasts about 25 – 30 mins.
Boarding for Small Pet
It’simportant to be able to relax whilst you’re away with the kids on
holiday or taking a break just the two of you and not having to worry
about if the neighbour remembers to go round to feed Bugzy the bunny!
That is why “Walk This Way” offers a home from home boarding
service for rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, mice or gerbils. Your
furry friend will be in safe hands 24hrs a day, loved as if one of
our own, fed, watered, cages cleaned, administration of medication
(if required) and the guarantee we follow special diets or any
special food requirements.
We have cages of our own for your rabbits and guinea pigs, but if you feel your pet will be more comfortable in his or her own cage, please feel free to bring along with you. Hamsters, mice or gerbils must come in there own cages.
Transporting pets (big or small) to the vets, groomers or even moving home can be a major and stressful experience for the animal and the owners!

It is equipped with secure, comfortable cages which all have fresh water available and soft bedding for the longer journeys, a box of treats is always at hand, a first aid kit and it is well ventilated. My Van and my self are also fully insured butI am unable to take human passengers.
“Our dog, Charley, loves her walks with Karen. She always has a fantastic time with lots of ball throwing and fun with her doggy friends. Karen is an obvious natural with animals and very professional in her business. It is lovely to see the interaction of the dogs in the videos she often provides of the walks. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her services.”

“Hello, I'm Milly...A totally gorgeous big labradoodle. Karen takes me on lovely long walks and doesn't mind if I get a bit wet (which is good because I LOVE water!)...My owners don't mind because i come home the happiest dog ever...in fact I even stay with Karen when my owners go away and it's the best holiday ever, I get spoilt lots (in a good way..not sweets and chocolate you know..good doggie spoiling). I've made lots of friends too and my owners Colin and Yvonne trust Karen to know best and to take really good loving care of me. I wait for her to come and collect me, it's so exciting... Anyway, I really wanted to say that Karen is like my 2nd family and she is the BEST doggie walker person any owner could ever imagine having. They know because they've had a few who have not turned out so well...SO she's the best and any doggie out there will LOVE HER! ”

“My name is Amber and I am a mad Boxer! My wonderful owners would be more than happy that I am writing this. I LOVE MY WALKS, I LOVE KAREN (even though she will not let me or my friends get away with naughty stuff!). I know that my lovely owners, Rob and Sue, like her very much too. I have made lots of new friends and we all have a wonderful time on our long long walks. I am always ready for something to eat and a long sleep when I get home. I adore her van - it is really comfortable for us doggies. I always feel loved and cared for when I am out for my walk If Karen ever stopped doing my doggie walk I dont know how I would cope! So, Karen, please dont ever stop!!! Love you lots, Amber Watson xxx”
