Here at Contented Dogs we are constantly striving to make the adventures the best they can possibly be for your pups. We are always looking for new things to include to keep your pups as content and fulfilled as possible.
Our range of adventures are not just a walk for your dogs, they are so much more than that. They are very structured (but in a fun way!) and follow our tried and tested system which ensures your dogs get to enjoy a whole host of activities while they are out, that are all designed to be stimulating for them, as well as fun! They do get to see and play with their doggy mates but they also play with us too and are learning all the time. Our adventures are packed full of basic and trick training, scent and toy games, cuddles and much more.
We specialise in gundog breeds but obviously we adore all breeds so everyone is welcome plus all of the games, training and activities that we do are all hugely enjoyed by, and are beneficial to, all of the dogs no matter what breed they are. We will include games to help with recall, loose lead walking, hunting and scentwork games and retrieving games, among many others. We follow our signature G.U.N.D.O.G system on all of our adventures:
Games – we include a variety of games tailored to gundog breeds (but enjoyed by all dogs) on all adventures.
Understanding – I have a working cocker myself who I have worked on local shoots for years so I understand what makes gundogs tick. We also have many years of experience between us of working with and living with a huge variety of breeds.
Needs – breed specific needs are covered. This is more important than you might think. The Animal Welfare Act 2006 specifies that dogs need, among other things, to be able to practise their natural behaviours and this is something that we incorporate into our adventures with specific games.
Different – we are different to other walkers; we don’t just do bog standard group walks where the dogs charge around with each other constantly, they are much more structured although the emphasis is always on fun.
Original – we are the original canine adventure specialists in the area and the only ones that offer structured adventures. We are very often imitated but never replicated!
Grow – we will help grow your dog’s confidence, training and happiness.
The benefits of this are huge, your dogs are not only tired and happy physically but also mentally, which is incredibly important for our pups.
Our group adventures are limited to a maximum of six dogs at a time to ensure they all receive the attention and care that they deserve.
There are many great places that we regularly walk nearby and being based in Wiltshire means we are lucky enough to be able to take advantage of the beautiful surrounding countryside when walking your dogs.
We will collect your dog from your house and transport them to the chosen location where the adventure will commence. All of us at Contented Dogs carry fully stocked canine first aid kits in our vehicles. At Contented Dogs we are also registered with DEFRA as transporters of animals and hold a UK Animal Transporter Authorisation (Council Regulation EC No 1/2005 Article 10).
