Get 10% off home boarding when you join as a new training walk client in 2021!
If you want your pup to learn good manners, basic obedience AND have a jolly good walk to boot, then our training walks tick all the boxes. Your dog will be the only pooch on the walk and so will have 100% of my attention. Our dog walking is guaranteed to knacker your dog out from all the mental stimulation - and reinforce your training. We visit local parks and riverside for variety; as well as streets, shops and cafes in Hampton Hill, Teddington, Twickenham and Richmond.
Similar to a 1:1 walk but with more time for exploring and sniffing, with 1 or 2 other well behaved dogs, in local parks, woods and riverside in Richmond upon Thames. All walks include healthy treats, poo bags, pick up and drop off from your home in my well-ventilated van (options to ride shotgun, recline on the back seat or be snug and extra-safe in a crate), and photo updates. Dog walking has never been so good!
Your dog is the only guest dog in my own home in Hampton, Middlesex, and will be treated as part of my family. My home boarding team includes: my husband, Paul, our two well-trained children and our playful and friendly spaniel, Buster, who loves having furry friends to stay over! Our garden is securely fenced and there are comfortable dog beds and sofas for lounging on. We go out for 2 or 3 walks each day, to local parks, the riverside and dog cafes. Our only condition is that your dog is comfortable around young children and other dogs that we may meet on walks. Although I have strict house rules and expect good behaviour at all times, your pup will be thoroughly spoiled with home cooked chicken soup, toys, games and cuddles. It's their holiday too, right?!
"We highly recommend Maven Dogs as she is always available, sends regular updates and our dog Ripple loves her. We know she will be completely safe and looked after as well as being stimulated by regular walk changes. What more could you want?!"
"Dougal loves his time with Maeve. Dougal is an 18 month old lab who has been with Maeve since his mid teens. Great mix of family time, socialisation with other dogs and training. Dougal loves Maeve and her family, can't ask for anything more."
