We have countless years’ experience of handling dogs under our belt. It also goes without saying that we’re fully insured, DBS checked and canine first aid trained.

Ready Freddy Dogwalks’ name was inspired by our beloved family friend, Freddy – our two-year-old cockapoo who is always up for an adventure!

We will require an initial consultation with you and your dog before any services are offered, to discuss their personal requirements and how we can help. We will also take your dog for a short walk to test their recall and their behaviour around other dogs.

We look after dogs within the S35 postcode and surrounding areas (including Grenoside, Chapeltown, High Green, Thorpe Hesley, Hoyland, Penistone, Oughtibridge, Deepcar, Stocksbridge and Hillsborough – other areas available upon request). 

There is currently no specific or legal requirement to have a license or certification to be a dog walker in the UK.

Busy lifestyles sometimes means your dog doesn’t always get the attention it needs during the day. Hiring a dog walker means giving your dog a chance to socialise with other dogs, positively stimulates busier breeds to burn off their energy, and also provides exercise for your pet when you might not be able to provide enough.

Aside from loving them, there are a few important skills needed to work with dogs. Being observant and patient, as well as adept at handling different breeds and sizes of dogs are all crucial skills. Being able to remain calm is also important, as well as having your own physical fitness.

We’ve explained you don’t need any formal qualifications for dog walking, and whilst you don’t need specific experience dog walking, it is important you understand canine behaviour. The team at Ready Freddy has lots of years of experience dog walking, so your dogs are safe in our hands.

Yes! For both you and your dog. If you find you don’t always have time, that’s where the services at Ready Freddy Dog Walks comes in.

As a general rule, walking your dog at any temperature that is below 20 C is perfect. Anything above that can cause your dog to become very hot and dehydrated quickly. The ground also starts to get hot, so what might not feel too bad for your own feet, can be very sore and cause injury for your pet.

The basics include either a collar or harness the lead can attach to. Other wearables could be a dog jacket if the weather isn’t great, and sometimes dog shoes to protect the paws. The shoes only would be for more extreme weather, and in those cases, it might be better to forgo the walk.
