Rocky's Summer Camp 2019!

Pool party today in this beautiful summer weather! A great way to cool off after we’d just come back from a long walk. Tossing a ball and playing chase. Everything that dogs love. And Rocky chills out under the outdoor table. Pool party and dog-treat-filled ice blocks today to cool off! The dogs had to work out how to get the treats out. It’s an excellent mental exercise to get them unstressed. Jack was more interested in trying to get the little ball out of the pool. The ball gets filled with......

This is Buddy. He’s been staying with us over the Holiday season. And what a character that he is! He’s basically still a puppy and has a lot of energy. That’s great when it comes to our daily morning walks which are offered to all dogs that stay with us (check out Dog Sitting). Buddy needs regular exercise (and so do I … shush). Our regular walks have been awesome to keep this big boy happy and unstressed. But other things are important to keep him (and every dog) physically and mentally healthy. So......

Our guest this weekend is Bud

This is Bud who’s made himself comfortable on our couch. He’s a 1-year-old Staffy-cross that we are looking after this weekend. He’s super playful and enjoys a good wrestling game with Blair. Bud is such a placid and cuddly big dog! A great example to those out there who think this is a “vicious” breed. It’s all in how you raise and treat your dog. Little chihuahuas can be more ferocious than this big fella here. When you treat them kindly, any dog pays you with twice as much love....

Always be sure to watch out for these when walking your dogs: – Litter – Other dogs’ poop – Sun (especially in the summer) – Water puddles – Pesticides and Rodenticides sometimes found in recently treated lawns, yards, agricultural fields, flower gardens, and buildings, – Toxic plants – Unleashed dogs The text also mentions wild animals, but that’s not necessarily the case here in NZ, unless you take your dogs on tracks where there are wild pigs. This one time while walking Rocky up the Mt. Oxford Track, a group of 3......

Whenever I’m walking the dogs, whether it’s my three boys Rocky, Wookie & Jack, or other people’s furry babies, passers-by usually ask me: Are these all your dogs? Or are you a dog walker? Now that we have uniforms, people might still ask me what I’m doing with all those dogs, but it’ll certainly be easier to answer their questions! Our uniforms have our logo, phone number, website and the services that we provide. So, if you see us walking past you holding between 3 and 9 dogs (that’s the number of......
