What started as a very wet week turned into glorious sunshine by the end.
Not that the dogs are bothered about what it’s like outside, although it means Alfie doesn’t attack the towel when he needs drying lol.
Monday I decided to visit someone new with Dexter and had a walk around Gatley Hill which he thoroughly enjoyed while splashing through the mud and puddles. Then another new visit while out with Alfie around Hollyhedge Park which was thoroughly amusing due to Alfie flatly refusing to walk through any puddles.
Then on Tuesday the weather although windy was blue skies and sunshine. Another new one for both Dexter and Alfie as well who visited Manchester Airport and Northenden/River Mersey/West Didsbury. Wednesday Dexter took a trip to Sale Water Park and couldn’t resist going for a swim while Alfie went for a walk around Wythenshawe Park where he no option but to dip his paws in the water due to it being waterlogged in several areas.
Thursday I decided to try something different and Dexter and Alfie were joined by my youngest springer Poppy. Everybody had an awesome time chasing each other around by the woods, river and Chorlton Water Park. Dexter and Poppy spent the rest of the day relaxing at our house due to all the running around and I’m sure Alfie would of spent the rest of his day snoozing until his owner arrived home.
Then Friday and the weather improving as the weekend was approaching I brought Snoop our eldest springer out for an adventure and her, Alfie and Poppy met up with a friends group walk for a local walk with plenty of fun and socialising.
Friday, Saturday and Sunday also saw dogs4walks visit Lulu the Shih tzu as well as her housemates the cats Eric and Ralf for some house sitting and a walk.
We still have places available for group dog walking so if you live around Sale, Sale Moor, Northenden, Northern Moor, Wythenshawe, Gatley, Chorlton and surrounding areas then check out our special offers on at the moment via the dogs4walks website.
So as mentioned in last weeks blog dogs4walks decided to 'Go Beyond The Extra Mile' and travel further afield with the dogs.
On Monday we took a trip into Derbyshire and had a fun walk along The Longdendale Trail which is a disused railway line that used to run trains between Manchester and Sheffield.
The great thing about the trail is there's a couple of areas for the dogs to go for a swim and they can be off the lead for most of it.
As well as a few local walks we also went to Rivington Pike near Horwich which is awesome for dogs and humans. The views are fantastic on a nice day and even though the weathermen predicted an overcast day they couldn't of been more wrong.
The sun was shining from start to finish and it made the walk even more enjoyable.
There's woodland, water, grassy areas and some amazing sights that can be enjoyed in the area including Pigeon Tower, Seven Arched Bridge and a Japanese Terraced Garden.
On Thursday we welcomed an amazing character to join us on our daily walks. He maybe small but Alfie the Pug is a bundle of joy and has loads of personality. Hes fitted in really well already and it is a joy to walk him.
Then on Friday and Saturday we also had some cat visits to turn our attention too. Cosey and Anwen are 2 adorable house cats that are very affectionate and cuddly.
Caring and spending time with animals is an awesome job and they get treated like one of our own at dogs4walks. So if you need a one off walk or pet visit to something more regular then get in touch.
Thanks Reece (dogs4walks)
Even though the dog's always need walking no matter what the weather is like it's always nice to have a week of virtually dry weather.
Our adventures this week gave us the chance to meet up with some friends group dog walks which are always fun. Socialising is a very important part of a dog's life and having happy dogs makes it great for everyone.
This week we have ventured to Turn Moss Playing Fields, Chorlton Water Park, Kenworthy Woods, Ashton Upon Mersey and Fletcher Moss.
dogs4walks has a special offer on walks at the moment if you book blocks of 5 or 10 walks. This is valid to the next 5 new customers and you could save up to 50%. Take a look at the Services and Prices for more information.
Next week check out our Facebook page for some different walks around the North West.
We love having different adventures here.
Have a great weekend everyone and don't forget we also care for other furry animals too.
No rest for me as a dog walker and I wouldn't have it any other way. We decided when we got our 1st dog that they were going to be a very important member of the family and we didn't want them to miss out.
So on a Sunday morning we get a lie in (but you said the dogs are important?).
Yes a lie in for us is 6:30am.
And when you take the dogs out at this time of morning and see this weather you are glad you took the opportunity.
So it's all systems go with my new adventure.
I decided to do something I am very passionate about and that's dog walking and pet care.
There is no better feeling than spending time with animals and being the owner of 2 springer spaniels I have had alot of funny times and awesome adventures.
So onto our 1st week which for me started on Tuesday and I had the pleasure of Dexter the Vizsla. We have visited several local places this week including Sale Water Park, River Mersey, Fletcher Moss and Kenworthy Woods.
Dexter is an amazing dog and such a character with lots of energy. It's been great as well because he get's on so well with my 2 springers Snoop and Poppy. So much so that Snoop has really come out of her shell and after only 1 week the difference in her has been very positive.
We also had the chance to meet up with a friend this week who was walking her dogs so there was plenty of socialising and loads of fun.
If you see us out on a walk come and say hello. You won't miss me in either my bright orange dogs4walks hoodie or bib.
Have a good weekend everyone
