FAQs

How many dogs are walked at a time?
Halpins Happy Hounds believes dogs have more fun if they can play and interact with other dogs. Our groups are kept small with groups of up to a maximum of 6 dogs per person. Groups are carefully selected with the breed, age, sex and personality in mind and can be discussed with the owner beforehand.

Do I have to be home when you collect or drop off my dog? 
No. You can, of course, be present, however, you can arrange to for our staff to gain access to your property by leaving keys with your concierge.

What happens in the event of an emergency?
In the unlikely event of an emergency, we will immediately call and notify you. In the original consultation, we ensure that we have all your emergency contact details. If veterinary assistance is needed, we will take your dog to your named vet or, depending on the circumstances, to the nearest possible one.

My dog has not been spayed or neutered, can he/she still be walked?
This can be discussed in the initial consultation, each dog will be considered separately but we reserve the right to refuse any dog.

What happens if my dog doesn’t get on with another dog?
We carefully select which dogs will walk together, if we find an imbalance within the group we will switch accordingly and inform you of our decision. We want all of our dogs to enjoy their walk.

My dog can be aggressive with other dogs or people and he has to wear a muzzle, can you still walk him?
No, we only offer group walks and they are not suitable for an aggressive dog to be on.
