Woodland Walkies, for company and stimulation, we can visit your puppy when you are unable to.
It is a big change having a new puppy in the home – lots of things to consider, we like it when new parents take the initiation and reach out to us well in advance of bringing a new puppy home.
We have an excellent and very successful puppy package for our clients and their new fur baby.
Our Puppy Pack includes…initially meeting the owners and looking at your home to decide on the most suitable equipment / living space and toys. We discuss the routine your puppy should be in – this should start on arrival at your home, laying down positive boundaries that will teach and encourage a healthy happy puppy within a safe environment.
We offer our puppy package visits in which a team member can visit your puppy, feed them, let them out to do their business and give them 30 minutes of stimulation, training and play.
Are you at work and have a new puppy that is not yet old enough to go outside due to not having their inoculations?

What happens after our Puppy has had all his vaccinations…
Walking a puppy can often give owners a dilemma. To work out how long to walk your puppy for, start with our general rule then consider your own dog’s circumstances.
A general rule when walking a puppy is five minutes per month of age.
This suggestion is particularly good for dogs who are going to grow rapidly and whose skeleton can be damaged with over-exercise. However, there are other factors to consider which could alter your routine:
Consider how strenuous the walk is. A lot depends on what type of surface you are walking on and whether the puppy is on lead or free running. Bigger breeds, in particular, should not overdo it as it can damage their fast-growing bones.
Regularly walking your puppy to the point of exhaustion isn’t sensible and can cause skeletal damage to growing youngsters.
Play games at home and devise other activities that employ his brain with training commands. At home he can break off for a nap if he is tired, but on a walk he may have to keep going.
Mental exercise is equally as important and is just as tiring for your puppy. If you start to introduce training, particularly using clicker training, you will find that 10 minutes’ training is just as good as 30 minutes’ free running in terms of settling the puppy down.
