About Good-Dog.co.uk

Hi my name is Amanda, founder of Good-Dog.co.uk.  I have a number of years' experience, training and operationally handling working dogs, as an Ex-Service Dog Handler. I am fully insured.  I am D.B.S (formerly C.R.B) checked. 

I own a suitable  vehicle to carry dogs safely, fitted with a bespoke Lintran K9 9 cage system, which is temperature controlled and has escape hatches in case of a rear end collision.  There is also a side security gate.

I am Dog First Aid certified to advanced trauma level.

I cover NG5 and surrounding areas.

Services I currently offer are:

  • Dog Walking.
  • ​1 to 1 Dog Training.
  • Home 'Pop-ins' / visits for dogs and cats.
  • Pet Taxi / Transportation.

​

Dog Walking:

I offer countryside and woodland walks (or even a swim in a lake if that's what your dog likes!), with dogs of all ages, either individually, or as a small group.  Whichever you prefer. Your dog will be walked on its lead at all times, unless written consent by yourself is given, and I have established a good recall with your dog. I understand the importance of having a trustworthy and reliable person to care for your dog, and I am that person with a portfolio of evidence to support this.

On wet rainy days (let’s face it, it is Britain after all!) or when your dog wants a swim or a roll in the mud, we will always clean their paws and towel dry them before returning them to your home.

Your dog will be cared for to the highest standard and you will receive updates of their activities whilst in my care.

Whether it be a regular walk, or an 'ad hoc' walk. I offer a flexible service with water, treats, love and fuss all provided with no extra cost.

Prior to any engagements I will meet with you and your pets, for a free initial no obligation consultation, to allow us all to get acquainted and to complete the relevant paperwork.

You will need to ensure that your dog is fully vaccinated, and provide your dog’s Vaccination and Health Check Records, as well as your vet’s details.

Your dog must have collar or harness and an identification tag.

1 to 1 Dog Training:

I do basic obedience training, and address behavioural issues with you and your dog on a 1 to 1 basis, this is less distracting than a group setting.  This is for dogs from 12 weeks old and upwards. The training sessions are tailored to your needs.  Each session is one hour and you may have as many as feel are necessary.

Home Pop-in / Visit services:

I offer a 'Pop-in' service to your home, to feed, change water, fuss and toilet break your dog.  Medication administration can be given if required with written consent.

This is also suitable for puppies, or elderly dogs, that require more toilet breaks.

I also offer this service for CATS with a litter tray clean during my visit.

​These visits are about 15 minutes.

I can also give text or email updates of the visit to keep you up to date.

Pet Taxi Service:

We can safely transport your pet to the vet's, groomers or further afield if you are unable to do this.

 

 

 
 

Feel free to give me a call, or text on 07534 691 355 if you want to discuss your requirements.

Amanda and Carlo have been walking my lab for a few months now and my dog absolutely loves it! She knows what day Amanda is coming to take her and sits and waits for her to come. Amanda takes her on really good walks where she can swim and run with other dogs and is gone for a few hours so I know my dog is getting a really good walk when she's out with her. I would definitely recommend using Good dog.

Good-Dog has opened up our world with her honest, reliable and genuinely fantastic dog walking service. Before our dog joined Good-Dog we were worried about the few days per week that we are both out all day, we were even more worried about handing keys over to a stranger but we have found this service to be spot on! Amanda has so much experience in training dogs & is a total dog lover. She has trained dogs for years and we are so grateful for the work she has done with our rescue pup! She offers us tips and advice when we need it, always locks the door behind her and i always come home to a sleeping dog when i get back from work as he has so much fun with her! He gets to go on walks to all different places and socialise with other dogs under professional guidance & his confidence is soaring since she has been taking him out with his dog friends! We even receive Facebook and instagram updates of our little pooch and it makes my day to know that he is out having fun whilst im at work.

Such a brilliant service. Amanda and Carlo are brilliant with our dog Otto. I feel rest assured that he is in great hands and gets a proper hour walk in lots of different locations. I get daily pictures / videos from Amanda showing Otto having a great time with his dog pals, putting my mind a rest that hes having a great time and is being taken care of while im at work. They have been amazing and have a wealth of experience in dog/police dog training and handling, making me feel assured from day one that Otto was in good hands. If you are looking for a dog walker/trainer/cat sitter, Amanda and Carlo at Good Dog are a must and provides oustanding service going above and beyond what standard dog walkers would offer. Thank you Good Dog πŸ˜€πŸ•A massive paws up from Otto as well

Amazing service! They are efficient, timely, trustworthy and with a brilliant rapport with the dogs. Amanda and Carlo have been wonderful with my puppy in all aspects- training, socialisation and exercise. I know we look forward to his journey into adulthood under their expert guidance (as well as my inexpert one!) I wholeheartedly recommend them. With dog walking services, you really need people you can fully trust to come into your home and this awesome pair take their jobs seriously. You get a report card on how your dog was every time they visit and regular social media updates. They have bespoke transport for the dogs and years of experience- couldn't ask for more!

Amanda walked my two dogs - Arlo and Otis ( Labradoodle + Sprocker) whilst I was on holiday and they were stopping with my mum, who couldn't commit to walking them far. They are hard to wear out but returned each day happy and sleepy after their fab walks with Amanda and new doggy friends! I contacted very last min and Amanda did everything she could to accommodate me and made me feel completely at ease leaving my boys with her. Good Dog was very professional and with tons of experience behind her I'd recommend Amanda every time.

Excellent and very professional service. Amanda and Carlos came over before hand to meet us and our cat Gizmo taking down notes about us and our cat. They were very friendly and Gizmo took to them straight away. We needed someone at quite short notice and Amanda was very accommodating to fit us in with the dates we needed. Everyday for a week there were notes wrote up on a sheet of times/dates and logged what food was given, if water and cat litter was changed and that Gizmo had had a play and a fuss. Also we had a photo sent to us and txt messages, and a lovely letter and cat treats given after when we got home, which was a lovely touch. Very reassuring and trustworthy will definitely contact Amanda again in the future. Thank you.

The training Amanda gave us and our dog has made a profound difference us. We now have a dog who knows the boundaries and we can enjoy playing with him off lead with his new-found obsession with balls! Thank you so much!
