Playgroup Dog Activities - Dog Walking and Pet Services in Worthing, West Sussex
Hello! My name is Tom and I run Playgroup Dog Activities! Firstly, congratulations for being a responsible dog owner by looking for some extra help with your dog; they really would thank you for it! I offer a fully insured dog walking service in Worthing that emphasises safety and responsibility by choosing to do more walks per day than my competitors; allowing safer and more controlled sized groups of 3/4 dogs. I also offer other services such as pet sitting services, and I'll happily do pet sitting and home visits for any species, not just canines! To see the other safety measures and policies I implement, please visit Playgroup's website where I have a page dedicated to explaining the precautions I take with your family members.
Playgroup doesn't just give your dog a good play and cardio workout, it keeps them sociable around other dogs and people, gives them a routine which in turn gives them stability, keeps them in shape and improves behaviour tenfold by removing frustration. We also run through the commands they have learnt to refresh them in their minds and enforce a healthy level of obedience. If for any reason your dog is missing out on their vital walks, get in touch!
I also provide pet sitting services in West Sussex, home visits & holiday care in your own home. If you're anxious about your dog being left somewhere unfamiliar while you're away, own home holiday care can be a great option that has four key benefits: Their routine is left unchanged, they remain in a safe and familiar place, they don't miss out on their exercise and your house looks lived in (and well guarded)!
Dog Walking Service
Playgroup was designed around the concept of organised walks that allow dogs to get some good exercise and some mentally stimulating play time while you're away at work. The walks are ideally done in groups that can range between 3-4, however if your dog is not great with other dogs Playgroup also provide a solo dog walking service in Worthing to give them everything they require.
I always make sure the location is perfect for running and interesting for walking; using locations such as the Sussex Downs and other local locations!
Playgroup doesn't charge you any extra if your dog has to go out on a solo walk. Unlike my competitors Playgroup dog walks are priced by time exercised, and not decided by how busy I am! I can cater for small dogs with 30 minute walks, medium sized dogs with 60 minute walks, and those energetic Collies with 2 hour Playgroup™ hikes!
Groups Of Four Maximum
I see it often; dog walkers opening their vans and unleashing anywhere up to 10 dogs to maximize their profits. Of course this makes sense financially, but at what cost? The more dogs there are, the harder it becomes to give each dog the attention they require and the harder it becomes to quickly control any unexpected situation. I don't sacrifice any control with my own dog, and I'm not prepared to start with yours!
Even if I don't get the pleasure of looking after your dog like one of my own, I really hope you'll follow Playgroup on Facebook and join in with the local dog discussions!
“Tom is a delight. He fully understood our rescue Labrador's needs and I can't fault the care and attention Jackson received. Despite being halfway across the world we were sent regular updates of Jackson's walks on the south downs each day. It was clear that Tom loved Jackson as much as Jackson loved Tom and it meant we could enjoy our holiday without worry. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend and we will be using Tom again in 2016.”
