Dog Walking

  • Full hourís walk, pick up & drop off from your house not included in this hour
  • Walks on the Quantock Hills, Neroche Herepath, Tone Riverside & Canalside paths, Blackdown Hills, Long Run Meadows
  • Pack walks are limited to a maximum of 4 dogs to ensure their safety at all times
  • Pick up from the following Taunton areas: Wellsprings, Priorswood,  Holway, Galmington, Comeytrowe, Staplegrove, Bishops Hull, Trull, Blagdon Hill.
  • Discount rates: Book in advance & pay in advance for 10 walks or more and get 10% discount
  • You meet me in advance to ensure that both parties are happy

Benefits to you and your dog:

  • Your dog gets the exercise and mental stimulation it needs
  • You don't feel guilty.  No more rushing around in the morning and dark evenings to take the dog out.
  • No more "who's walking the dog?" arguments.

A dogís walk, ideally should be meaningful and enjoyable for both the dog and the owner, not a chore to get out of the way.  However with our busy modern lifestyles itís not always easy to fulfil this. Making sure your dog has enough exercise is important for its health and behaviour.  If they do not get enough physical and mental stimulation this may lead to bad behaviour such as barking, chewing and digging.

When walking dogs I aim to provide:                    

  • A fun, safe,  structured and disciplined walk as the pack leader

  • A dog that is happy, exercised and drained of
    some of its energy

        On or off the lead?

If you want your dog walked on the lead then I will do so, as long as it is lead-trained and not excessively pulling.  However with your permission I am happy to give dogs the opportunity to run free off the lead, in a safe environment, providing they have a good recall.

Group walks or one-to-one walks?

Most of the E4W walks are as part of a group or pack, dogs enjoy the company of being in a pack and having the stimulation of the other dogs.   As long as your dog is well socialised and not aggressive to other dogs it should be able to join the pack.  If your dog is aggressive or nervous of other dogs then it would be more suitable to a one to one walk with my own dog.

How many dogs are walked at once?

The most dogs Emma4Walkies will walk at once is 4.  This is because I believe this is the maximum number of dogs that can safely and responsibly be walked.  I want to make sure I can keep an eye on where all the dogs are, what they are doing and whether they have just been to the loo and it needs clearing up.  Also I am abiding by the rules and insurance of NARP.

Where are the dogs walked?

I will take your dog to a number of different places in the area; see below some of the places I might take them, so your dog does not get bored with the same old walk.
