NEED TO KNOW
City Pups is a small, friendly and reliable dog walking and day care business serving most of Central and North West London. City Pups brings urban dogs together to walk, play and have fun while their humans are busy. Run by Tom, a former assistant police dog handler for Lancashire police, and Roxy, Tom’s Australian Shepherd, he offers dog walking, day care, puppy care and holiday care. Dogs are walked in Hampstead Heath, Regent’s Park and Primrose Hill and are guaranteed to come home tired and happy, leaving you with a clean conscience as you get on with your busy life!
DOGGY DAY CARE
If your dog needs more than a midday walk, their countryside daycare service is the perfect solution! It is by far the best place for your dog to spend the day while you are busy at work- with a friendly, sociable atmosphere and loads for them to do, owners are completely guilt free knowing their dog is having a ton of fun in the country rather than sat in a flat or house in Central London
They will swing by in the morning to pick up your dog and head 35 minutes out of London to our 16 acre daycare site in the Hertfordshire countryside! A dogs idea of heaven, they will spend the day running in the meadow, swimming in the pools, playing in the tunnels, tyres or in the sandpits, testing themselves on the agility course and in 'boulder valley' or napping in the cozy heated shelters!
They have a huge range of shapes, sizes and ages of dogs in their daycare. It’s also a perfect place for puppies to grow up with the best socialisation you could ask for. They always make sure they match the activities to the individual dog- puppies and older dogs can take longer naps while the others bomb around the meadow. City Pups make sure all of the dogs have an amazing day, whatever their interests!
They cover the majority of Northwest, West and Central London. From Shepherds Bush in the West to Kings Cross in the East, from Hampstead Garden Suburb in the North to North Kensington/ Holland Park in the South.
Rates are £30 per day.
PICK UP AND DROP OFF
This is included in all prices. City Pups have specialist vans that they transport your dog in, they are fitted out with purpose built crates that are safe and spacious with soft flooring and non-spill water bowls. In the vans their ‘dog area' is heated and cooled with air conditioning too and there are thermometers in the back telling the drivers what's going on in there. You will always have the same driver that comes to pick your dog up and drop them home. They generally hold keys for your house so you don't have to be in when we pick up or drop off, and they will always do their best to make sure your dog is as clean as possible before they are left- walking dogs can be hosed and towelled down outside and day care dogs are washed on site at the end of muddy days before traveling home!
City Pups walk in Hampstead Heath and Regents Park- they always use the park that is closest to your house to keep travel time down to a minimum. They have a smaller area for our dog walking service than their day care, but your dog can join them for walks if they live in NW1, NW3, NW8, W9 and some parts of W2 and NW6.
City Pups aims to provide the best dog walking service you could find, caring for every dog as if they were our own. Their walks are more than just a quick stroll around the block, they make your dog’s time with us as special as possible. When your dog joins City Pups, they will arrange a suitable time for their walks and for how long they want to play out. The standard walk length is an hour, but if you want your dog to be in the park for more than one walk then this can always be arranged.
City Pups will come round to pick them up from home and head out to meet up with the other City Pups in their group. Then it’s off to the park to exercise and play games!
When that’s finished, they will return your dog back home tired and happy. Before they leave, water bowls will be topped up along with any other duties such as day meals or medication.
Rates are £12 per walk.
PUPPY DAY CARE
Once your pup has had their injections, City Pups will come and pick your puppy up and take them out into the big wide world to start socialising them with people, traffic and most importantly- other dogs. They have a big group of friendly dogs for your puppy to make friends with and to learn from, and introduce them to as many different situations as possible. They will start working on recall in the safety of the day care- and they will quickly be able to play and explore off lead with you in the parks.
City Pups day care is simply the best way of socialising your puppy, ensuring they grow up to be happy and friendly around other dogs and people. They have worked with all sorts of breeds including dogs that would usually have the reputation of being snappy and nervous once older. As well as focussing on their socialisation, they put a programme together to work on their basic training and toilet training so they grow up being well mannered. They also make sure there is lots of opportunity to rest during their time and of course the all important puppy lunchtime is a big highlight of the day!
If day care isn't your thing, your pup can also be added into one of the walking groups in Regents Park or Hampstead Heath. Pups will get to play and socialise with a friendly group of dogs for an hour, and the walk will be slightly adjusted so that they aren’t being over exercised.
City Pups are fully insured and in case of an emergency they will take details of your dog’s vet. They would contact you immediately in an emergency. If it is necessary for your dog to go to a vet, they will be taken to either their own vets or the closest surgery depending on the situation. They have relationships with 3 different vets less than 10 minutes away from the day care in case anything happens so we can always be seen very quickly!
