Actually I've took puppies on for a while now but I haven't been very good at promoting the fact. It wasn't something I initially thought about and really I just wanted to focus on the dog walking side of things but pup visits and dog walking go hand in hand so really it was a bit of a no brainer. My first pup was 'Indy' who I took on about a year ago and since then I have had 2 other pups come into the gang, namely 'Maisy' and 'Luna' who will both make the leap from puppy school to proper pack walks in September.
All of the pups I have took on have needed a lot more attention that the grown up dogs I have been more accustomed to but I have enjoyed seeing them progress and find their place in the world.
Here's a picture of the new most recant puppies, Maisy with her broken leg and lovely Luna. Both of these dogs were about 12 weeks old in these pictures and I am pleased to say Maisy's leg is now healed and better than new and both dogs have a lovely nature and are full of beans!
As anyone with a pup will tell you looking after a new pup is way more time consuming than looking after an older dog, new pups demand much of of your time and attention but look at how cute they are! This means that my time is generally split over a couple of puppy visits per pup each day i have them, more often that not this will involve 2 half hour slots and each visit comprises of a short walk, once the vet says it's ok for them to be outside that is and some command training and of course playtime.
So if you have a new pup or are thinking of getting one then give us a shout as we're now looking out for our next puppy as both Maisy and Luna are almost ready to graduate into regular one hour pack walks.
