WIRRAL DOG WALKER
We care about your dog
About me and muddypaws
Hi, I’m Simon and I’ve always wanted to work with dogs, and my opportunity came a
while ago after I was made redundant from the NHS.
I could have got another job at another NHS Trust but decided I didn’t want to, to
follow my heart and do what I’ve always dreamed of: I haven’t looked back and love
what I do now.
I have over eight years experience caring for, handling, and walking dogs in my dog
walking business, and many more doing the same for family and friends’ dogs. I have
also been a volunteer dog walker for the RSPCA.
I offer a safe, friendly and reliable dog walking service across the Wirral.
There are various reasons why people use my service: owners are out at work all day,
on holiday, are ill or infirm either temporarily or longer term, or simply haven’t
the time to walk their dog(s).
From my experience I know there are many benefits for your dog having a walk during
the day, such as exercise and the health benefits that gives, such as keeping weight
down and lowered risk of heart disease, companionship being with me and the other
dogs, stimulation and socialisation both for young dogs getting them used to meeting
other dogs, and older ones who may not be used to other dogs company.
Dogs enjoy their time with me for different reasons: some love travelling in the
car while I collect their ‘friends’ to take them to a suitable walking location.
Some just love burning up energy running around at high speed, others prefer to plod
along and take in the scenery, but all just love being outside and smelling the hundreds
of smells that we humans cannot smell! Some are quite happy to walk along by themselves
and others just love to play and run with the other dogs and meet new dogs and people
on the walk. My aim with all the dogs I take out is to make sure they have fun and
enjoy themselves in a safe and dog friendly environment.
A lot of my clients prefer to use a dog walker rather than leave their dog in doggy
day care because their dog is much happier in its own home, looking forward to me
coming, having a great time with me, and then having a rest/sleep before you return
I do one-off walks, occasional walks, and regular ones, both the same days each week
or different ones.
I can do pre-planned walks or am available at very short notice to those clients
who work shifts and are called into work at short notice, for example.
I am experienced with all sorts of breeds, sizes, temperaments, and ages, from a
miniature dachshund to a very large English mastiff, from quite shy, timid and low
energy dogs to lively outgoing and high energy ones, from very young puppies to elderly
dogs. I understand the needs of the different types of dogs and cater for them accordingly.
