Maisie enjoying the comforts of our home during her stay.

In addition to puppy and dog training and behavioural help and advice, K9 Help also provides a fully insured walking, day care and boarding service.

Dog walking and day care.
I am pleased to be able to offer an excellent and reliable dog walking and day care service in the areas listed below via my lovely friend and colleague, Trena at Follow the lead.

All the dogs are walked in small groups ensuring individual attention to each dog. In addition, it ensures that the dynamics of the dogs are closely monitored and therefore the potential for the shy dogs to be overwhelmed by bolder dogs is avoided. Allowing dogs to run around large outside spaces with little or no supervision or intervention may look like fun, but in fact, in my opinion, it can be emotionally damaging to some dogs.

For information regarding dog walking in the areas below, please contact my colleague Trena 07719 530889 or email: trenaflowers@hotmail.com

Areas covered; Barnes, Battersea, Fulham, Parsons Green, Putney, Roehampton, Wandsworth, Wimbledon.

Holiday, weekend and overnight care.
Myself and my K9 Help colleague Steve and Trena and her family and colleagues at Follow the Lead, (details above) provide overnight, weekend and holiday care for dogs in our homes.

All the dogs that stay with us are assured of an exceptional level of care and attention, plenty of exercise and fun in Fulham, Putney, Roehampton or the countryside of Wiltshire* or Buckinghamshire*(*please note, there is a 7 night minimum charge for any dogs that board at the locations marked*).

Our holiday care service includes collection and return of your dog to your home and costs, £39, per dog, per night.  Please note that all stays of over 3 weeks, require a 30% deposit payment in advance at the time of booking.

In order to provide the best possible care for the dogs that stay with us there is a limit on the number of places available, so please do make contact at your earliest opportunity.

Collection time. If you are leaving your home before noon, for your convenience your dog will be collected the afternoon/evening before.  This ensures that you are available to leave at a time to suit your travel schedule and plans and there are no last minute moments of concern should your dog carer to be unavoidably delayed by traffic, or you have any unexpected changes to your travel timings.

Return time. If you are not due home until after 4 pm, then we will return your dog to you the next day, so that there is no anxiety or rush, as a result of airport, train or traffic delays etc. giving you a relaxed end to your time away.

Please note there is no collection or return service on a Sunday or Bank holiday, unless it is in exceptional circumstances.  If your first or last boarding day is a Sunday or Bank Holiday, then your dog will be collected the day before and returned the day afterwards.

If you have not used K9 Help/Follow the Lead for boarding.  If this is the case then there is a 30% deposit of the total amount for any boarding for June, July, August, December and up to January, 10th, (plus Easter which is a movable time of the year). Please note this is non-refundable payment if the booking is cancelled within 12 weeks of the start date. This is to avoid a boarding place being taken for a busy time of the year and then cancelled with little or no notice.

Non-spayed or entire dogs. Please note we have very limited space to board entire male or non-spayed female dogs.  The only member of the K9 Help team who has the space to board dogs such as these is Steve and as you can appreciate this does limit availability.  If this is the case for your dog, please do contact me as soon as possible and we will do our best to accommodate your dog(s).

Weekend care, Friday to Monday. Collection at approximately 4 pm on Friday and return before 9 am on Monday.  If you would like your dog returned to you after this time, then there will be an additional cost of, £20 to cover the walking cost for that day.

The cost for weekend care is; £135.  If you would like or need your dog to be returned to you later than 9 am on the arranged day, then there is a additional daily walk charge of £25*. (*Does not apply to SN8 postcode boarding).

Overnight care during the week. Please contact my colleague Trena directly 07719 530889 or email:trenaflowers@hotmail.com to discuss costs and collection and return times etc.
