Waggaroo walks take place in woodlands, beaches, local sand dunes and in our new privately rented 7 acre enclosed field. The field is based in Colwinston, where the dogs are completely free to roam off lead where ever they want and be safely contained. They have paddling pools in the summer, agility equipment, sand pits to dig in. The dogs love to run around freely and chase rabbits and explore the bushes and ferns.
Is a Waggaroo walk for you?
Do you wish you could come home after a long day at work and snuggle on the sofa without having to go back out in the rain and wind to walk your dog?
Would you like to know that your dog is having a long walk during the day so you can relax with them when you get home?
Are you currently ill and unable to walk your dog and need a helping hand?
If you answer yes to any of the above then a waggaroo walk is for you.
Why choose Waggaroo?
We have a private 7 acre field, which is safe and secure. This means your dogs will be protected from members of the public’s dogs whilst walking here. The field is secure meaning your dogs can run freely off lead for a full hour. During the summer months we provide paddling pools around the field for your dogs to play in. We will also be putting in sandpits for them to happily have a dig.
During the walks we play games so use their different senses tiring out their brains as well as their bodies.
The service includes: free assessment in your home, pick up and drop from your home, a rub down with a towel in the wet weather and a shower if necessary, private facebook page for customers only to view your dogs adventures whilst with us and the most important part the dogs have lots and lots of fun, excitement and socialisation within a pack walk environment.
I am also an assistant dog trainer and have vast amounts of knowledge and experience with dogs. I am first aid trained, have studied a canine health and welfare course and attend many seminars to update my knowledge. I am a positive rewards based trainer. Your dog will receive lots of treats and positive praise whilst walking with me.
I am happy to work with un-socialised dogs and dogs that can show some aggressive tendencies to others.
I cover Bridgend, Tondu, Colwinston, Cowbridge, Ogmore-by-Sea. To find out if I cover your area please contact us
