Dog Walking

3 dogs have fun with WalkeezWe all know that dogs love to walk. Going out for their daily stroll not only exercises a dog physically, all that sniffing helps to stimulate their brains too! When life is busy with family, work and other commitments, it’s not always easy to fit in the daily exercise our canine pals require. This is where Walkeez can help!

Walkeez are delighted to offer a friendly, flexible and reliable door-to-door dog walking service, so your dog can join us for some fun and socialisation on one of our daily walks around Swindon’s parks and green spaces.

Group or Individual Dog Walks

We offer 30 minute and 60 minute group walks for sociable dogs, and 30 minute individual walks for those pooches who prefer their own company. We will collect your dog from your home, then take them for a fun-filled adventure to one of our preferred walking locations. Poo bags are provided free of charge, and small treats are always available for rewarding good doggy behaviour.  We are happy to walk well-behaved dogs off-lead (with owner’s written consent) when it is safe to do so .  All dogs will be kept on leads when walking near roads or other hazards. At the end of the walk, dogs will be returned home and towel dried. Water bowls will be refilled, and food or medication can be given if required.

Reliable Service throughout the year

Testimonials

Happy Customers

Marie

Sarah has looked after our whippet Esme since we moved to Swindon in 2015. Sarah is extremely professional in her approach to the care and safety of all the dogs she looks after.  She carefully arranges dog walks to ensure all the dogs are compatible and happy in each others company. Sarah is completely reliable and flexible and she’s especially accommodating and understanding when my shifts change at work. I simply wouldn’t be able to have Esme without Sarah’s help.

Esme clearly adores Sarah, it’s a delight to see her reaction when Sarah arrives to take her out. We think Sarah is wonderful and Esme thinks she’s even more wonderful!  As I so often say . . . “I don’t know what we would do without you Sarah.

Emily

Sarah has been walking and caring for my cavachon Betty since January 2015. Sarah has never let me down. She is completely reliable and often accommodates any short notice changes to usual schedule or additional walks when required. On the days that I work, I’m safe in the knowledge that Betty will have a fun walk with Sarah and be looked after, loved and cared for. Betty loves her and has even been lucky enough to stay with Sarah and her family when I’ve gone on holiday! Sarah is considerate of my home too and returns Betty clean and tidy even after muddy winter/rainy walks. I have frequently recommended Sarah to my friends and family and would continue to do so – she helps make my life a lot easier.

Sarah

When you love your dog so much, you want someone special to exercise & care for him!  And we have been so lucky to have found Sarah – we feel that she loves Stan as much as we do!

Eileen

Sarah helped me out at short notice and made my dog, Sooty, very happy when I had to work long hours and was unable to walk her. Sooty really liked Sarah and was so happy to see her when she brought my key back. Seeing them together I knew she had looked after my dog as if she was her own. I would recommend her to all my friends. Thank you Sarah.

Clare

Sarah looks after Atticus on a regular basis and I know that all of his needs are catered for. He is not always the easiest or most obedient dog in the world, but Sarah is patient and consistent with him, and he always returns from his walks happy and tired.

Rachel & Dean

Sarah has been walking our little boy Skout since 2015. We have nothing negative to say whatsoever. We would highly recommend Sarah’s services to anyone who is looking for a pet service. Skout has grown in confidence with other dogs, probably a bit too much! We love the fact that we see daily pictures of his walk; he has lots of fun! Sarah even used to mop up skout’s pee before he was fully house trained, how many pet services do you know that will do this?

Jacqui

Sarah (walkeez) has been fabulous; reliable, caring, able and willing to take on the various medicines and behavioural weirdnesses of my two elderly cats.  I feel totally comfortable leaving them with her. She is amazingly efficient and warm with it.  She sends me updates when I am away and has stepped in at very short notice when I have needed it.  She is my fourth emergency service.  Can’t recommend her highly enough.

Mark

We were lucky enough to have Sarah walk our dog during the school holidays this year. Sarah is extremely accommodating, conscientious and has all of her dogs’ interests at heart. She’s also a lovely person and we couldn’t recommend her highly enough!

Juliet

Walkeez is such a lifeline for us. Our little Jack Russell loves Sarah and really enjoys her walks. Not only does it give us peace of mind knowing that our dog is safe and well exercised, but that she has had a great time on her walks.
Sarah is very professional, and spent the time getting to know us and our needs. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a fab dog walker.

Jon

We are absolutely delighted with the service that you provide – and we consider ourselves very lucky to have found you!

Sarah provides a thoroughly professional and reliable dog walking service.  Izzy was quite shy to start with but she now has such a lot of fun during her time with Walkeez.  She’s always really excited when she sees Sarah and can’t wait to go out with her.

I can’t recommend Walkeez highly enough.

Karen

We were delighted when Sarah informed us that she was going to start her own dog walking service, and she walked our two Spaniels, Millie and Polly, every day during the working week for nearly two years until our circumstances changed.
We trust her implicitly with our dogs and know they get plenty of exercise while out with her. I would have no qualms in recommending her to anyone who needed her services.

Debbie

Sarah is friendly, reliable and provides an excellent service walking my dog when I’m not able to. Not only does Millie love her walks, running around with the other dogs, but she also gets a clean up when she gets back! Brilliant!! I would (and have) recommended Walkeez to others.

Kerri

We are extremely satisfied with the service Sarah provides, and we are confident that our French Bulldog, Taz is in safe hands. Sarah offers a professional and personal service. We absolutely love reading Sarah’s lighthearted Facebook updates and seeing all the photos of the walks for that day, and it is clear that Taz thoroughly enjoys both Sarah’s and the other dogs company. Sarah is also more than accommodating, Taz struggles with heat, and Sarah tailors her walks in summer to ensure Taz can stay in the shade and continue to enjoy his walks. We feel really lucky to have found such a reliable, trustworthy and friendly dog walker and I would (and have) highly recommended Sarah to anyone who is looking for a dog walker.

Thanks for your continuous hard work and loving care of Taz!

Heidi

Sarah provides an excellent personal service, I felt she cared for my dogs to the highest possible standard and gave them loads of attention and affection. I never had to worry about the dogs when I was away or at work, I knew they were in good hands! I highly recommend Walkeez.

Tara

I have a 5 year old Lurcher and Sarah has been walking him for the past 2 years. I would highly recommend Sarah as a dog walker and sitter, she looks after the dogs really well making sure they all get on together and have lots of fun whilst out and also pays great attention to washing off in the winter months which is greatly appreciated. Sarah has a great Facebook page and keeps it up to date so you can see photos of your dogs out and about. Sarah has also looked after my Mum’s birds whilst we were on holiday which was great knowing we had someone we could trust to have access to our house whilst away.

FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions.
Here are some common questions about Walkeez.

What areas of Swindon do you cover?

We currently cover West Swindon areas, Wichelstow, Old Town and the Lawns. If in doubt, please contact us and we can let you know if your address is covered.

Where will you walk my dog?

Our favourite walk locations include:  The Lawns, East Wichel lakes and canal, The old Railway Line at Old Town, Shaw Forest, Lydiard Park and The Ridgeway at Foxhill.

How many dogs do you walk at a time?

This depends on a variety of factors, such as walk location, compatibility, and the behaviour of the dogs. Myself and an assistant are both insured to take six dogs each. However, when walking alone, I usually take a maximum of four dogs on a group walk. and If walking with an assistant, we will take a maximum of six dogs in total.

Will my dog be let off the lead?

We are happy to allow well-behaved dogs to walk off-lead when it is safe and appropriate for them to do so, but owners must sign an Off-Lead Disclaimer before this can take place. All dogs will be kept on leads when near roads or other hazards.

How are dogs transported to the walk locations?

The Walkeez VanDogs are either walked straight from their home, or transported, safely and comfortably in our ventilated and air-conditioned Walkeez van.

What do you do if my dog gets dirty?

Walkeez dog clean up operationWe do everything we can to keep your home clean when returning your dog after their walks. Unfortunately we do not have the facilities to wash muddy dogs, but all wet or dirty dogs will receive a good rub down with a towel at the end of their walk.

My dog can be a bit grumpy towards other dogs, can she still walk with you?

Walkeez are happy to walk unsociable dogs on their lead and on an individual basis. We will tailor the walk to minimise the likelihood of meeting other dogs, whilst still ensuring an enjoyable experience for your dog.

We WILL NOT walk, or provide care for, dogs who display high levels of aggression towards humans and/or other dogs.

What if my dog is taken ill or injured during a walk?

In the event of illness or injury we will administer first aid as necessary and try to contact you on the telephone numbers provided to ask how to proceed. The welfare of your dog will always be our first priority and in the event of serious illness or injury we will transport your dog directly to your usual vet practice, or the nearest vet practice if this is considered more appropriate, making every attempt to contact you on the way.

Are there any pets that you won’t look after?

Walkeez will consider looking after any well-behaved domestic pet that can be cared for in their own home or garden. We do not look after horses, and we will not provide care for aggressive animals, or any poisonous insects or reptiles.

My pet has a medical condition. Will you be able to give him his tablets?

Walkeez will consider requests to administer medication on an individual basis. We will only administer medication that has been prescribed by a vet for the pet in question, and owners will need to complete a Medication Permission Form before this takes place. A record of all medication given to your pet will be maintained by the pet carer.

I’m going on holiday, can you look after my dog?

Walkeez does not currently provide holiday care for dogs. However, our friends at The Fairy Dogmothers do provide holiday care at very reasonable rates, and can provide a home from home experience for your dog whilst you are away.
