ForPaws Group Dog Walking ServiceWith the improved equipment and training given to our staff, we are now able to safely and effectively take up to six dogs per group walk with our more experienced members. Many walks will remain groups of 4, with the additional 2 only joining at peak times.

This change will mean that we are more able to meet your wishes to provide services during the peak midday slot and of course will allow us to absorb the cost increases from the dreaded VAT mentioned above.

Corrine has spent a great deal of effort in training staff to be able to comfortably manage those lovely pooches that have occasional lapses in recall so as not to reduce the pleasurable experience for the remaining dogs in the group.

ForPaws Group Dog Walking in Guildford and GodalmingWe will add increased focus on matching individual dogs to particular groups. This again will enhance their enjoyment and maintain tight control and safety.

The smart new vehicles and more experienced staff will mean the slight increase in group size will have nothing but a positive effect. We are delighted to discuss individual circumstances with you at your convenience.
