As a lifelong dog owner and dog lover I switched careers to follow my passion and became a full time dog walker. As a former teacher/lecturer I am now a qualified Pet First Aid Instructor offering courses to Pet lovers or pet professionals.
I provide a quality dog walking service between Perranporth, Truro and surrounding areas that makes full use of the beautiful countryside that Cornwall has to offer..
I know how hard it is to find a reliable and trustworthy person who will look after your furry babies as well as you do. I can guarantee that when the demands of life take you away from your pets, I will provide the attention and care that your dog needs and deserves. I currently cover Perranporth, St Agnes, Goonhavern, Shortlansend, Zelah and Truro.
Your dog's happiness, safety and care is my priority and I strive to provide a level of service that I would want my own pets to receive. I might be slightly more expensive than some dog walkers, but I am proud to offer the highest quality care with 4 dogs maximimum. Thats the Take Me Out! guarantee!
Our van is safe, new and well maintained. I will probably regret buying such a nice van!
Your dogs safety is always my top priority. Dogs travel in crates or if they ride in the cab they will be wearing seatbelts.
When we are lucky enough to see the sun my van is fully air conditioned, so your dog will have a comfortable ride and will not overheat.
Thank you for choosing Take Me Out Dog Walking, I will ensure that your dog (s) will be safe, secure and cared for like they were my own. My prices are slightly more than some dog walkers, but this is because I walk 4 dogs max. Before we start I will carry out a Meet and Greet with myself. All dogs must be fully vaccinated, wormed and micro-chipped.
Your dog will be collected from your home and transported to various venues where they can run, play and explore under my careful supervision in a small pack of 4 dogs maximum. I will ensure that I clean up poop and will return your dog dry, watered and happy back to your home. They are guaranteed a minimum 1 hour walk.
As above, but at a discounted rate for multiple dogs.
Your dog will spend the day with me and my furry friends receiving a minimum of 2 - 1 hour walks.
If your puppy is too young or your senior dog is unable to join us for a pack walk I will pop in for a cuddle, let them have a sniff and do their business in the garden and if required I will feed your dog.

This course is similar to Pet First Aid, but it is designed for people who just want a course that only covers dogs.

With more and more people owning dogs people have started to think about first aid for their pets. Just like humans pets have accidents and knowing what to do should the worst happen is important to help preserve your pets life and aid recovery. Pet first aid is not aimed to replace veterinary care but it will help you to recognise an emergency, calm your pet and reduce the risks of delayed treatment.
Pet first aid is taught in a fun and informative way and will give you the skills to deal with a pet emergency should it arise.
This course is ideal for pet owners or pet professionals. It covers the main first aid subjects for Dogs and Cats but this information is also suitable for most other animals. Understanding basic first aid for your pet will give you the skills to assist them and prevent them from getting worse before professional help is given by your vet.
Advanced pet first aid level 3 (VTQ) covers much more details about the different injuries and illnesses that can affect dogs and cats. The course has been designed to give the pet owner or pet professional much more information in order to be able to detect early when something is wrong and give the appropriate care.
The course also covers the anatomy and physiology of animals and different first aid treatments that are available. Although the treatment is basically the same between dogs and cats, the advanced course has a dedicated section to cats. This course can be completed at home online and in a classroom.
As an online course - With this, you work through the course over 6 hours and learn from the videos but there is no practical module. You would then complete a practical module locally with one of myself or another approved instructors.
As a blended course - Blended training is where you complete the online module (6 hours) and a practical module (approx 6 hours) locally with an approved instructor where you also cover practical subjects to gain the full qualification certificate. .
How many walks do you do a day?
I do 2 walks, 1 in the morning and one at lunchtime.
My dog has to be lead walked is that OK?
Yes, that's absolutely fine, we are happy to walk dogs on a lead if requested.
My dog is old/slow how would you cater for them?
We walk dogs of all speeds and age, we would always walk at the slowest dogs speed and ensure a flat walk if requested. I have a 12 year old Labrador who plods whilst my Sprocker happily 'runs rings around us'.
