Our group dog walks are one hour and take place at local parks. We introduce your dog into a like minded group to ensure the best play time for everyone. Our walks vary by the day and can include hiking and swimming or a game of fetch. Please note – this is not a Play Group – your dogs will enjoy actual walking time as a pack.
Welcome to Heather & Pooch!
Find out about Lawrence Park’s premier Dog Walker!
We welcome your pet into our home to stay and live as our dogs do. We offer 3-4 walks per day, meals twice a day and plenty of comfy dog beds and couches to sleep on. We have a two guest maximum, please call in advance to ensure availability. See here for more details.
Puppy visits are offered once or twice per day. Your pup will have the chance to have a potty break and stretch his legs. These visits will aid in house/crate training and help alleviate separation anxiety.
Cat visits are offered to those kitties who may need some extra attention. “Dogs have owners, cats have staff.” ~ Anonymous
Trotsky our 8 month old miniature dachshund loves Heather and has the best time going on her adventure walks withing our area. We feel so confident and comfortable knowing Trotsky is in good hands with Heather or Dan. They have become very special friends to Trotsky.
When we began our search for a dog walker for our (then) puppy Sammy, we thought…what attributes would make a good dog walker? Someone who is reliable, trustworthy, personable and has a love of animals. Well, Heather met every one of our criteria. Over this year we’ve trusted her with the new member of our family and she’s never let us down. We know that she loves Sammy as much as we do. We’ve left her with Heather on daily walks as well as up to 2 weeks of vacation and we’ve always been able to leave knowing Sammy is in the best of hands.
I would recommend Heather to anyone looking for a reliable dog walker. You won’t be disappointed.
Heather is a capable dog handler. She was terrific taking care of my four and a half year old rescued lab-mix – keeping her healthy and out of trouble when she cared for her on a few occasions (most recently for 10 days during the holidays). Heather’s calm and assertive energy and skills and experience with animals make her a strong pack leader. My dog has some issues and I am only comfortable leaving her with a knowledgeable and skilled dog person – Heather fits this bill. I recommend her to anyone looking for a reliable dog walker or sitter.
When my wife and I need to have our dog Keeper (our first born) walked, or taken care of for a few days, we have always known where to take her. Heather is not only trustworthy with our beloved pooch, but she is also extremely good with her. Heather has an amazing ability; and not just with dogs. We have seen her abilities in a variety of situations and it is what makes us confident and comfortable leaving Keeper with her and not worrying. Heather is a reliable and well rounded person. Look no further if you need services for your pet. Heather will meet and exceed your expectations and allow you to leave your pet knowing it will be well looked after while you are away.
We have a 5 year old rescue golden retriever Spy. He has “special” needs and it has been difficult finding someone capable to walk him and take care of him while we are away. Having discovered Heather & Pooch has been a relief. We now have a trusted and reliable individual who actually cares for our dog. The walks have been perfect dealing with his special tendencies. We have found the services at Heather & Pooch so reliable that we have no hesitation about recommending them to others!
We had the wonderful experience of having Heather and Pooch look after our beloved cat Clea while we were on holiday. As our vacation approached, we found ourselves in a bind and were starting to look into Cat Hotels. We knew it wouldn’t be the right environment for our cat and that’s when we discovered Heather and Pooch and we were so glad we did. Heather visited each day to feed and play with Clea. We felt so confident while away knowing that she was in good hands. We would definitely recommend her to friends and family. Heather is caring, loving and reliable; your pet would be lucky to be taken care of by Heather.
Heather has been with us since we first got Cole our Lab/Border Collie cross. Cole was not keen on walking at 9 weeks and would barely make it out our front door. Heather has been excellent with Cole and he they work well together. Her services and care have provided us with relief through the most crucial puppy stages and now I am very happy to see Cole is graduating to Group Walks and we look forward to continuing working with Heathers services – and so does Cole.
