Dog Walking

In a perfect world we’d have an abundance of free time to spend walking our dogs and enjoying quality time exploring the outdoors with one another.

Unfortunately in this 24/7 ‘always on’ world that we live in, juggling work, kids, a social life…and the ideal amount of exercise for our pets (let alone ourselves) can be a challenge to say the least!

While we can’t wave a magic wand and reduce the stress of some responsibilities, we can lend a hand with your pet. Let Mad Paws take the lead, so to speak, and take one less job off your hands.
  • Regular exercise: Dogs crave exercise, socialisation & stimulation to be at their best. It’s important for both their physical and mental wellbeing.

  • Personalised approach: Allow your dog to take their time on a leisurely walk or burn energy on a run if they prefer - and you choose whether it’s a 1-on-1 experience or with other dogs, for an added element of socialisation.

  • Trusted, reliable, local: Browse our marketplace for a Dog Walker near you and even set up repeat weekly bookings to give your pet regular exercise - simply set & forget.

  • All walks are insured: All bookings are covered by Mad Paws Accident Cover so there are no extra hassles for you to worry about.

Finding the time to take your pet for a walk each day may not be feasible. This is where Mad Paws Dog Walking comes in! Enlist the help of a local Dog Walker to give your pooch the attention and exercise they need at an affordable price.

The way it works is simple. Simply browse the reviews of our trusted Dog Walkers, and when you see a profile you like, make a connection. Then, look to organise a Meet & Greet with any potential Dog Walkers to make sure that it’s a good fit. 

After just a few walks with a member of our team, you’ll notice a healthier, happier dog. And, by the time you get home from a hectic day, your well-exercised dog will be ready for cuddles!
