and our goal.
Firstly, Our dogs.
Wags 'n' Whiskers ltd.
Wags and whiskers aren't just your dog walkers. We become close indispensable friends with everyone of our clients and always have your dogs best interests at heart. If we feel your dog is not enjoying their experience the best they can, we will work closely with you and your dog to change that. If unsuccessful, we recommend another trusted dog walker who we feel can better suit their needs.
Our collective background is animal crazy. We have cared for a vast amount of animals during our time and have ambitions to do this for the rest of our lives. We have worked in kennels, veterinary practices, along side behaviourists and with trainers. There were many area's within each of these industries that we didn't enjoy. This is how we landed in domestic animal care. Over the years we have developed the mystical skill to see things before they happen. By this I mean we have become particularly good at reading your dogs body language. This is a Priceless to skill to have in this industry and its enabled us to stop certain situations arising or negative behaviours progressing. The best thing about this job is helping owners build their relationship with their dog after we have taken a lot of the stress out of their lives.
Each and every team member is "Wags and Whiskers certified", meaning we completely trust the judgments and capabilities of all our team member. All applicable training and insurances have been administered and absolutely necessary in this industry. We take pride in providing the best quality and most qualified people to our clients.
Wags 'n' Whiskers was just an extravagant dream for many years. Before actually committing to the Wags 'n' Whiskers movement, working voluntarily in kennels. Learning a lot about what it takes to truly love our four legged friends. We have experience in veterinary nursing, behaviourist training and an obvious one, dog owning. Which isn't always a given in this industry. A lot of established dog walkers do not even own their own dog, which is crazy if you ask us. We make sure all our members have at least basic behavioural knowledge, before being eligible for our training. After having owned and fostering many dogs in the past, we still adore owning and loving our current family pack of 5. As do our team members with their own fur families. Realising how misunderstood and misread dogs truly are, we noticed that the ones mostly disregarded and rehomed, were the ones that weren't going to the trainers and just becoming a menace to their owners households. This is where we feel we step in. Our thought was, if our services could be cheap enough and excisable enough, that all dog owners could use us, we could step in. Train, advice and correct the behaviours that typically cause owners to re-home. Now, of course, not every dog is a misunderstood menace. But we love to help direct and productively intervene to help any of our clients with any issues they might have.
Amongst our team we have every basis covered. From qualified veterinary relationships, to direct lines to behaviourist Trainers. We are only a few clicks away from quality professional advise that could change your relationship, and your life, with your dog. On top of that, we even have qualified carpenters at our disposal that help securing our clients gardens and households for your new family member. All at affordable prices.
