Preparing For You New Arrival

Puppy Pre-Arrival Visit

$130

Our puppy pre-arrival visit helps you prepare your home and your family to welcome the new member of the family.

Over the course of 1-1.5 hours, we'll help to answer all your questions about what to expect during those first few weeks. Getting it right from the very start can help ease your puppy's transition into your family home to help them settle in with as little stress as possible. We can offer advice about the equipment you will need, nutrition, health, grooming and socialisation. If you're looking for the best possible start for your puppy, we've got you covered!

Social Pack Walks

Off- Lead Social Adventure Walks

Our walks are off lead and take place in safe local dog exercise areas. Our goal is to make sure your dog has LOTS of fun, socialisation, and exercise! As a result, you’ll notice that your dog is calmer, displays less destructive tendencies, and is more content.

‘A Tired Dog Is A Good Dog!’

Our walks include:

  • 30 or 60 minutes of exercise

  • Pick up & drop off

  • Walks in safe dog exercise areas

  • Socialisation with other dogs

  • Photos & videos of each walk

  • Pats, cuddles, love & attention

  • Safe dog vans with comfortable crates and pet first aid kits on board

NOTE: We will still usually go out in light/moderate rain situations. If the rain is torrential we will cancel our walk due to health and safety risks. We will contact you on the day if this happens.

Requirements:

  • Dogs must be social and love to be around other dogs

  • Dogs must have excellent recall

  • Dogs must be comfortable traveling by car/van
