Run and have fun with the Woodland Walkies Fur Club…
No one likes being cooped up at home all day least of all dogs. A dog needs mental and physical stimulation and loves to socialise and play with other dogs.
Let your pet enjoy the company of other dogs to run, chase, sniff and play with their friends. These walks are done in an environment where it is safe for them to be let off the lead (subject to your permission and general recall response of the pet), so that they can have the best exercise possible. This is the best possible way for your dog to be socialized and we have every type of dog from spaniel puppies to 15 year olds joining in the fun.
We collect your pet in one of our vans and then usually take the Woodland Walkies Fur Club to a rural location where they can run to their hearts content. If the weather is wet they are towel dried on their return home.
Areas we cover and pick up your Pet for Dog Walking are only in Penarth and Cogan.
Doggie Paradise walks right on our doorstep…
Only a few miles from Cardiff situated within the beautiful Victorian town of Penarth where Woodland Walkies is based is Cosmeston lakes.
Cosmeston Lakes is one of the finest country parks in South Wales and has recently been designated with local nature reserve status. We are lucky enough to walk straight out of our front door into the beauty of Cossy ( as the locals call it )
With a number of beautiful rural walks to choose from within our catchment area, we will often vary where we go to provide as stimulating a walk as possible for our regular walkees. The choice of route is also dependent on the weather and on hot, dry days we will always seek out the shade and cool of a woodland or river walk.
The fantastic doggie walks with stunning tranquility set in more than 200 acres of unspoilt Countryside centered around a series of lakes , ancient woodland walks and natural beauty is simply the perfect place for dogs to enjoy themselves
With so many excellent local walking routes, Woodland Walkies in Penarth is the perfect location for your dog to explore the beauty of nature and enjoy the outdoors within a safe environment.
Our dog walkers will collect your dog from home and give your pet a full hour’s walk before dropping them back off again. Once we have initially met you and your pet during the free consultation meeting we can begin working – Dog walking days/times are set by you once you register onto our client portal system – we can work round your schedule.
Our dog walking services are ideal if you work all day, have a business meeting, need to go shopping or just have other commitments that mean you can’t take your dog for his regular walk.
