Welcome to Walk About, my name is Jan. I live in Ledbury and I offer a dog walking service around Ledbury. I currently have a fantastic group of dogs who I have built up a strong relationship with over time. We walk regularly in and around Ledbury five days a week.
Each dog is walked how you as their owner requests and how the dog responds best. Most of my dogs walk well together especially when they get to know each other. However, this is not always best for some dogs so I do walk on a one to one basis. I also offer lunch time visits which can include walking or just to let your dog out.
I have owned dogs for most of my life and have two whippet lurcher crosses who regularly come on our walks with us. My husband Edward walks with me sometimes and will depending on time allowances do Saturday and Sundays occasionally dependant on what is needed and time available.
Safety is paramount and all my clients (dogs that is) are highly valued members of the family and as such I take great care of them. I have dog walking insurance which covers me for a wide variety including public and professional indemnity, lost house keys etc. I also have a basic police disclosure check.
I love all the dogs I walk and have a lot of time for them so it is not just a job. I do get some more unusual requests one being last summer I was booked to look after three dogs up in the hills while their owners went off and got married. We spent a wonderful afternoon walking in the woods and hanging out in the garden on what thankfully was a warm and sunny afternoon.
I also have been around horses for most of my life and have my (British horse Society Assistant instructors BHSAI) qualification. I currently own my beautiful part welsh black mare and have had her since she was a yearling, she is now 13. I offer a bespoke service where needed with horses and any creatures great and small within reason.
We also offer house sitting. Which of course included taking care of your pets and animals while you are away as well as your house.
