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.

Spring Has Sprung!

Spring has definitely arrived here in Derbyshire. The temperature got to 20c last week, the daffodils are in flower and the trees are full of blossom.

With lockdown restrictions begining to lift, lots of people are finding themselves heading back to work too, so I’ve never been so busy with dog walking and pet sitting. One of the new starters is Jack the Pug, who is now enjoying regular morning walks near his new home.

There are other new starters too, but I do still have limited slots available. So if your pet needs looking after when you’re back at work, get in touch for a chat about the options available.

Happy easter!

After the snow

The snow came and went pretty quickly this week. Most of it had melted by the time Rupert got his home visit. Not that he was too bothered. There were still plenty of other things to sniff at.

Bess & Hardwick

Hello to Bess and Hardwick, who have both started having weekly walks recently. Here they are this week, enjoying their afternoon out in the sunshine. Who would believe the photo below was taken just a stones throw from the M1 motorway?

Nice weather in Bolsover

There were some nice days this last week. On at least a couple of mornings the sun was out and the sky was blue. It makes all the difference when there’s a lot of walking to do.

The photo was taken on Bolsover hill, with the castle in the background.

Hello Chino

Chino and his friend Frank have both been out for walks last week. Luckily the weather was fine on the days they went. Lets hope they continue their track record for having walks on sunny days!

Otis In The Sun

Otis was making the most of the sun last week. And there’s more good weather to come this week apparently.

There are also new lockdown restrictions coming into play from Monday, but as with all the others, nothing will change with the services we offer. The only thing we ask is that our clients contact us immediately if they are told they may have been in contact with someone with Coronavirus. This is so we can take extra precautions not to pass any infection on.

At least Otis seems quite happy to enjoy the sun by himself.

Sky is back

It’s been quite a few weeks since I’ve seen Sky. With his owners working from home during the lockdown, they have been taking him for his daily walks. However, now things are starting to get back to normal again, they had a long awaited evening out, so I took Sky for a sunset walk last Saturday.

As well as dog walking I also visit other types of pets when their owners are out. So if you’re worried about leaving your pet alone after so many months of being at home, give us a call for a free quote for a walk or home visit.


Welcome back Sophie

This is Sophie. She had walks last summer but she’s now started again because she needs more exercise than her owner can manage. So she’s now having a walk every weekday to get her out more. Luckily she lives near lots of footpaths, so there are plenty of options of where to go each day. The challenge is sometimes getting her outside. Especially if it’s raining.
