A much quieter week this week with Dexter going away on holiday with his owners so i treated Alfie to 2 new walks for him.
With Monday being a Bank Holiday it gave my wife Vanessa a chance to join the good life and she came with us. I decided to take a trip to one of my favourite local areas that being Styal Country Park and Quarry Bank Mill.
I have done loads of walks around here and the routes can be varied with lots of different paths to take with a previous walk totally around 13 miles. You can also include a fantastic walked called Manchester Airport Runway 2 Trail that coincidentally i took Alfie around this week as well.
This walk is not only an awesome walk for dogs but it gives me a chance to take in one of my other passions and that's aircraft spotting. There cant be that many airports in the UK where you can get amazing views of a great percentage of the runways and also get very close at times to the aircraft.
Seeing the Emirates A380 come buzzing over your head face on is a daunting task the first time you do it.
We also did my local sports fields a couple of times which has a total of 20 football pitches and can incorporated Kenworthy Woods and Chorlton Water Park. I am so lucky where i live for dog walking as once i walk the first 200 metres from my house i don't actually have to set foot on more than another 400 metres of tarmac in a 4 hour walk. Plus there's so many different routes and trails i can take there's always somewhere different to go.
When i get time one day i want to start looking into writing reviews and a guide to different places in the area people can take their dogs. I can thank Gary Box who runs Northampton Dog Walker for the idea.
So onto another week of dog walking and i hope everyone has a good week.

Usually i would love a 4 day long weekend where i am not working, but as i am now in a job i love i get great satisfaction caring for the pets while others enjoy time off.
This weekend meant i got the chance to spend time with some gorgeous cats. The cat visits over Easter were Betty, Cali and Leo who were all adorable, cute and very funny to spend time with.
Betty was up to her usual tricks of sitting in the sink and pawing at the tap to get water droplets coming out while Cali and Leo kept me entertained by either trying to open the zips on my pockets or running through their play tunnel.
During our dog walking Poppy and Dexter were up to their usual tricks of chasing each other around like lunatics. Now and again Alfie would wind them up and join in too so all 3 of them would end up shattered after the walks. So much so that Poppy joined Dexter on a 2 hour walk for him one day and then joined up with Alfie on his 1 hour walk.
We had visits this week to Wythenshawe Park, Turn Moss Playing Fields, Wythenshawe Sports Fields, River Mersey, Kenworthy Woods, Fletcher Moss, Chorlton Water Park, Styal Woods and Quarry BankMill.
Plenty of variety on our dog walks to keep them all entertained.
An unexpected surprise this week was receiving an Easter egg from Alfie and his owner. Little things like this (although the egg was huge) are always nice and make it all worthwhile.
Here’s to another great week dog walking
A completely dry week with the weather and as usual the dogs were on form this week. It’s also funny how the further they get to the weekend it’s like they all wind down. I guess it must be all the fun and adventures catching up with them and by Friday they just want a casual walk about.
Dexter and Poppy were up to their usual tricks of chasing each other around and even Alfie was getting in on the act. He makes me laugh so much with the way he winds them up. He will stand there staring at them and all of a sudden do these little crazy movements to get their attention. By the end of the week he was jumping up at a friend’s dog on his back legs and it was like he was shadow boxing.
Saturday I had the pleasure of some cat sitting and met the gorgeous Betty. With 2 visits to see her it was lovely to see her meet me at the door for both visits. What was funny was when she decided she wanted to sit in the kitchen sink and was quite content sitting there too.
This week coming ends with a long weekend for some being Easter and although it’s always nice to have a long weekend in my previous jobs in this job I don’t actually mind working. No Alfie or Dexter over Easter but I do have a couple of cat visits and if anyone else needs their dog or cat looked after over Easter weekend then please give me a call on 07938 699 623 or email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org as I still have places available.
Have a great week everyone and enjoy your Easter holidays.

This week has possibly been the best weather wise and it cannot get any better than working outside and walking dogs.
I did things abit different this week so it gave the 3 dogs plenty of time together and also met up with a few other local dog walkers which was also awesome for the dogs because it gave them a chance to socialise and also nice for me to get to know more people doing the same job as me.
Its always good to meet up with other dog walkers because at the end of the day we all want whats best for the dogs and we can always help each other out.
We had some funny moments on our walks this week and the funniest was seeing Alfie the Pug chasing Dexter the Vizsla around. There was no stopping Alfie and hes certainly a loveable character.
Poppy and Dexter were also up to their usual mad selves and had several sessions chasing each other around. So much so that come Thursday it was like they were on 'wind down for the weekend mode'.
Lets hope next week is as nice with the weather.
