WALKS, DAYCARE, BOARDING + GROOMING

Doug started off as an East London dog walker and Doug's Dogs still focusses firstly on WALKS.  We also offer DAYCARE and BOARDING - together, our services ensure that you can get out and about, or off to work and do not have to worry about your dog. There's more to come in the future but here's something about what we do now and our prices:

WALKS

Our walks do so much more than it says on the tin!   They’re highly energetic with loads of running and last for at least 1hr.  We guarantee that your dog will come back tired and happy, (they probably won't need another walk that day). Throughout the pick up, drop off and walk we also work on behavioural improvement - including crate training, recall, pack 'etiquette' and more.

  • Pack safety - we never walk more than 6 dogs at a time. Walkers are trained in pet first aid, understand their body language and pack management.  We walk off lead whenever possible, but only where safe. We use large open spaces, rather than walking on pavements and pathways.
  • Walk location - Walks take place in Hackney Marshes, Victoria Park, Epping Forest.
  • Equipment - everything from balls, leads, collars (with tags), poop bags, treats, water is provided.
  • Pick up & drop off  - from and to your home, provided by our DBS checked and fully insured walkers (who you meet before we start our walks for you).  Travel will either be on foot, or carefully customised vehicles, where your dog will be happy and safe.

Prices:

  • 1 dog        from £16.15/walk (dogs are out of the house for approx. 2 hrs with a 1hr min walk)
  • 2 dogs      from £30.15/walk (i.e. 2nd dog is from £14/walk)

DAYCARE

Daycare is offered in the homes of Doug (Bow, E3) and Charlie (Hackney Wick, E9). Your dog will be in a family space with hands on attention and comfort throughout. We have gardens, indoor crates, quiet areas and easy access to the park. Dogs go on at least one walk (usually 2) during the day plus regular toilet breaks. We can provide food but most owners prefer to give their dog's special food.

  • Times - you can drop off from 8.30am - 9.00am and collect by 5pm (late collection charges of £5/hr for the first 30 minutes then £10/hr thereafter).
  • Pick up & drop off - this can be provided for a small supplement (depending on location)
  • Numbers & priority - these are limited due to space; the service is available for dogs who walk regularly with the team or long term (1 month+) bookings.

Prices:

  • 1 dog        from £27.08/day (9am - 5pm; walks, toilet breaks, food included - pick up / drop off charged depending on location)
  • 2 dogs      from £47.39/day (i.e. 2nd dog is from £20.31/day)
  • Full pricing details are here

BOARDING

Our boarding is in Doug and Charlie's family homes - safe, cosy and with people your dog knows. With daily walks (minimum one long, high energy walk but usually two), toilet breaks, use of the garden, indoor crates, quiet areas and of course, sitting with the family in the evening, our boarding is a home from home experience.  We can provide food but most owners prefer to give their dog's special food.

  • Numbers & priority - these are limited due to space; the service is available for dogs who walk regularly with the team or long term (1 month+) bookings.

Prices:

  • 1 dog        from £40.00/day (walks, toilet breaks, food included)
  • 2 dogs      from £68.00/day (i.e. 2nd dog is from £28.00/day)
  • Full pricing details are here

GROOMING

Actually we don't do the grooming. That's done at Short Bark & Beard, by our great friend, the highly talented Steven Clasper. His grooming salon is busy all week at Hounds of Bow, the brilliant Roman Road 'dog shop', where you can stock up on all your dog's requirements.
