Telephone problems

We are currently experiencing a problem with our mobile phones due to network upgrade work taking place at the cell tower at Sutton Cum Duckmanton.

If you can’t reach us by telephone today, please drop us an e-mail using the contact form on the home page.

As far as we are aware the electronic tracking of our dog walks is still functioning normally.

Daycare & Overnight

Would you like to spend the night in a kennel, with all those strange sounds, no human company and a cold concrete floor? We didn’t think so!  It’s likely to be just as stressful for your pet too. So here at Andy Walks we have the perfect home away from home alternative.

Your 4-legged friend will be looked after in a home environment, with people, toys, good food and a nice warm bed.

We only take one dog at a time or multiple dogs from the same household, So it’s as stress-free for your pet as we can make it when they are away from home.

We offer both daycare and overnight stays, which can be combined at a disconted rate to form a complete doggy holiday. Daycare can also stretch into the evening, usually at no extra cost, so it’s perfect if you’re working late.

Call us now on 07837 306824 for more details.

Better weather today

After a few wet days the weather has changed for the better today. Here’s Venus and Roco, waiting for the sunset over the reservoir this afternoon at Harthill.

This scene is soon set to change with the dam on the left of the photo being replaced over the next couple of years as part of a £5,000,000 improvement project.

Hello Winter

Winter is here. Not the season, but the husky! Winter or Winnie to her friends is enjoying walks while her owner is at work. This time of year that involves a lot of playing in the leaves.

It seems Winter has brought on the season of the same name too. I’ve scraped the frost off my windscreen for the first time this week. Roll on summer!

Nova enjoys her walks

Nova has been out, enjoying her morning walks. She was a lockdown puppy, so was quite nervous when I first started walking her because she hadn’t seen much of anyone or anything apart from her immediate family. I’m pleased to report she’s a lot more relaxed now though and seems to enjoy her walks more and more.

Happy Chino

Chino has been enjoying some lunchtime home visits recently. Along with his friend Frank, he usually has a good run around the garden, chasing bubbles and anything else that moves for that matter!

Summer is here

Chino and Frank have been out enjoying the sunny weather this week. It’s been cold and wet for ages here, but the sun has come out over the last two or three days. So we’re all making the most of it while it lasts!

Hello Odin

This is Odin. He’s joining us every weekday from now on for ‘doggy daycare’ while his owner is at work. He’s happily running around Andy Walks HQ, looking for tennis balls and other toys I’ve hidden to give him something to do.

With lots of people returning to work post-lockdown, it’s important to remember it can be a very long day for our furry friends if they are stuck in an empty house. We can help, even if your pet doesn’t want a walk, we can do home visits from 30 minutes duration to check on them or, like Odin, you can book them in for doggy daycare. Give us a call on 07837 306824 for more details.
