Playgroup Dog Activities - Dog Walking and Pet Services in Worthing, West Sussex
Playgroup Dog Activities is a Worthing based dog walking service that puts safety and professionalism at the forefront of it's core. Sensible safety measures, responsible professional conduct and lots of experience collide to ensure that your dog is walked in a controlled and happy environment. Click the green button below to learn more about what makes Playgroup Dog Activities the best dog walker for both you and your dog.
All dogs are placed in spots in the vehicle that are safe from accidents and conflicts. Playgroup Dog Activities has bespoke steel cages to ensure the dogs that need their own space will always be able to sit up and turn around in their cage. There are no sharp bits for them to be injured on in transit and no dog leaves the car without being secured first. There is also an "open area" between the cages and the drivers cab which is padded and floored with non-slip rubber matting which can be very comfortably shared between dogs of the same household and dogs that are solid friends. Playgroup's vehicle is a "Peugeot Partner" van with full air conditioning and a built in dog guard, letting the dogs benefit from air circulation, light and space!
Playgroup Dog Activities is fully insured with the pet industries leading insurer. Our insurance protects the general public, my customers and your home from things such as breakages or loss of keys. For full insurance details, don't hesitate to ask to see the documents! If the thought of letting me into your home while you're away is concerning you, don't worry. I'm DBS (CRB) checked and can produce the certificate whenever you wish!
The Best Equipment
All dogs are different and therefore require separate methods to keep them happy and under control. I have at my disposal everything I should need, from long lines to GPS trackers; and super absorbent towels to first aid kits! The only tools I refuse to use in any capacity are ones that cause distress or discomfort; such as shock collars, tools that may choke your dog and any physical or verbal punishment.
5 Years of Experience
For 5 years, I have walked many types of dogs in many types of groups. This has given me a wealth of experience as a professional dog walker, in dog behaviour and dog control. Aside from one bee sting and one twisted knee (alas, some things just cant be avoided), my dog walking service holds a completely clean record with zero dog-on-dog injuries and no lost dogs. This is due to sensible group planning, individual training, control and responsible safety procedures.
“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.”
