Why Hire a Dog Walker?

Are you considering hiring a dog walker, but not sure it is worth it or not sure you should trust anyone with your dog? Scamps & Champs Dartford have considered the benefits of hiring a dog walker below to help you make the right decision.

If you are at work during the day and not able to be around for your dog, hiring a dog walker can ensure they have the company they require and also allow them to socialise if your dog enjoys the company of other dogs. Scamps & Champs Dartford will carefully match your dog to other dogs based on temperament and size and we only walk a maximum of 4 dogs – So no pack walking! This ensures your dog is able to socialise safely and play with dogs of a similar temperament, which helps their development and all round happiness. However, if your dog does not like the company of others we also offer solo walks where your dog can have the sole attention of the dog walker and get the human company they need to remain happy!

If you are unable to get out and about to walk you dog for whatever reason, hiring a dog walker allows your dog to get the exercise they require. Scamps & Champs Dartford offer both half hour and hour walks depending on the requirements of your dog. We know that some dogs are happy with just a half hour walk on the lead, but some require a full hour of chasing a ball to get the required level of exercise they need to keep them healthy and happy. This is why we always meet with you first to assess your dogs specific requirements prior to commencing any dog walking.

Not knowing who to trust with your dog is another important factor to take in to consideration and is another benefit of using Scamps & Champs Dartford. All of our team are police checked and fully insured. They are all dog lovers with plenty of experience with a variety of breeds and temperaments and they will treat you dog with the love and attention they deserve. This is another important reason why Scamps & Champs Dartford offer a free no obligation meeting to get to know your requirements. This meeting also allows you to meet us and feel reassured about leaving your dog with us.

If after reading the above you are interesting in finding out more information about hiring a dog walker please do get in touch with us at Scamps & Champs Dartford and we would be more than happy to discuss your requirements.

Is your Dog Home Boarder Licenced?

It was a great step forward last week when I could finally apply for a Reigate Home Boarders licence with Reigate and Banstead council, believe me it has been a long and arduous task and I am sure I am not alone.

At Scamps and Champs we are championing the right, just and appropriate way your animals are looked after which is why we are adhering to all the Defra Regulations which went into effect from October 2018.

I have been slowly building an animal loving team to provide Reigate dog walking, cat feeding and pet sitting services and am know looking for the right people to become host families for our Reigate Dog Home Boarding.

Lots of people will know me from walking the various popular local places with my dogs over the years. When I talk to people of my hopes in slowly building a respected local pet care name, under the Scamps and Champs brand, I am surprised at how few are aware of the new regulations and therefore may be unwittingly leaving their dogs with an unlicensed person therefore, leaving themselves at risk as there will be no insurance in place should anything happen not something I would personally be happy with.

At Scamps and Champs Reigate you can rest assured that your dog will be being looked after by a host family where they have been fully vetted by ourselves and fit the new regulations but I think most importantly will have fabulous 1 on 1 care as we will only be boarding dogs from the same family. Your dogs will not be boarded with any other families’ dogs.

As a potential customer you will be given the chance to meet your Reigate Dog Home Boarder to see where your loved ones will be staying to give you complete peace of mind while you are away.

Finally if you or anyone you know would be interested in becoming one of my host families please do get in touch for an informal discussion.

Please do get in touch for all your Reigate pet care needs and hopefully we can help you out.
