Introducing… The dogs, part 1

Holly


  

Holly is All Animals Welcomes business partner, she’s a 2 year old Rottweiler. She accompanies us on all our walks. She helps socialise puppies and nervous dogs as well as helps teach the dogs good recall. She has completed her bronze stage kennel club good citizen award.

Douglas

  

Douglas aka Dougs is your typical crazy springer spaniel. We’ve been walking him for over 2 years now. He loves to carry a ball round with him where ever we go although he does love to destroy them if given the chance and has an incredible ability to sniff out tennis balls! Where ever the is water there is Douglas, he loves to swim and loves to race Holly out into the reservoir to get the kong first.

Misty

  

Misty aka misty-moo or mystical is another one of our resident walkees. Full of character,  she loves telling the other dogs off if they play too hard and has been known to have a play with the other dogs when she thinks I’m not looking! Will do anything for a gravy bone!

Skye

  

Skye aka Sky dish or Skye pie is our cheeky little Westie puppy. Loves nothing better than getting muddy out on walks, coming on leaps and bounds with her recall. Full of attitude, she loves enticing the other dogs into playing her games!

Introducing…. The horses!

Welcome to my next blog, before I start with our long list of dogs, I’m beginning with the horses we have in our care.

Over 20 years of experience with horses, I have completed BHS exams and looked after and owned a wide variety of horses and ponies. Including the pony I have now who I have backed myself. I have competed at local shows doing working hunter and in hand classes.

Visits are tailored around you and your horses needs. Services include:-

  • Feeding
  • Mucking out
  • Watering
  • Grooming
  • Turn out/Bring in
  • Rug changing
  • Medicating

We cover a wide area of the High Peak for most of our services. Equine services are offered in Chapel en le Frith, Whaley Bridge, Buxton, Chinley, New Mills, Hayfield and many more, so please don’t hesitate to get in touch to discuss your equines needs.

Here they are, a list of our current horsey clients…..

Tosca, Pinto & Callie.

Tosca Tosca2

I have been looking after Tosca & Pinto since I first set up business about 2 years ago. Unfortunately beautiful Tosca passed over the rainbow bridge recently, she was 35 years old and was a pleasure to look after.

Pinto Pinto2

Gorgeous boy Pinto is around 20 years old, he is unfortunately prone to laminitis so is on a strict care regime! Full of personality he’s a pony babe and he knows it!

Callie Callie1

The beautiful Callie is Pinto’s new companion, she is around 5 years old. She was rescued from the Blue Cross and is unbroken. I have the privilege of assisting in her new life, which includes turning her into a wonderful riding horse, assisting with her training.

Trevor & Whisper

Trevor Trevor2

Gorgeous boy Trevor is a 16hh thoroughbred X and is an amazing 20 years young! He is another prone to laminitis and mud rash so is on a strict care routine. He’s very sweet natured and loves a fuss!

Whisper Whisper2

Pretty little Whisper is a very shy girl, we think Welsh X and are unsure of her age. Unfortunately she is not overly keen on people so won’t let you near her unless of course you have a few carrots to hand!!

Codey, Florrie, Harry, Jack & Magnum.

Corey Florrie Harry Jack Magnum

I have only met these guys a couple of times, but they are awesome ponies! I have a sneaky soft spot for Harry as he’s just so cheeky and loveable!

The beautiful Jack is 15 years young and has qualified for HOYS!!

Zack & Callie.

Zack Zack2

Zack is about 10 years old. A loveable boy who loves his food!

Callie2 Callie22

Callie is 3 years old and has been bought from off the moors and is being brought in to work as a riding pony

Tilly.

098 Tilly

Lastly is our own Tilly, she’s 7 years old and is a Welsh section D X Hackney. She’s been with me since she was 18 months old where I bought her from Holmfirth Auctions! She was terrified of people and still is at times. It took months of patience and carrots and hours sitting in the stable with her trying to gain her trust. I have backed her myself and am now proud to say she is ridden with no bit and has no shoes on. Au Natural!

Thats all for now, keep an eye out for our next blog where we will be introducing some more of our fantastic animals!!

Introducing…. The Animals! (Part 1)

I thought this would be a good opportunity to introduce everybody to some of the animals we look after here at All Animals Welcome.

Firstly we have our own to look after….

Snowy Days!

So it’s snowed…. just like they promised it would. We’ve had a nice deep covering of the stuff in Chapel-en-le-Frith! Enough to mean the van is stuck and I have been unable to get to Buxton to do my dog walking, fortunately for me most of our owners were snowed in too!

10382142_1033854216628508_3782625537996717108_n

I have to admit, I love the snow, Holly does too! We don’t mind walking in it. Some of our doggies aren’t so keen especially when it comes to the snowballing around their feet!

Here we have a couple of our favourite snaps of the dogs (and Trevor the horse) in the snow.

Fingers crossed we have no more of the white stuff and it clears over the weekend so normal business can resume!

Day in the life of a dog walker!

Today started off like any other, got up, fed Holly, got dressed. However today is the day I get to try out my new and improved van, complete with air intake to ensure cool and comfortable doggies whilst travelling!!!!

So loaded my pal Holly into her crate in the back and left Chapel en le Frith, High Peak for the sunny Buxton hills to do some dog walking!

First stop was puppy visiting Poppy the 15 week old working cocker spaniel in Buxton.

Image

Poppy and I went for a 30 minute walk round the fields of Fairfield where we met two other dogs and a couple of sheep… good socialization for her! Then back home for some play time, a little obedience training and all importantly, some dinner!

After leaving Poppy, we went to pick up Misty, Lottie and Daisy and traveled to the old reservoir in Buxton for another hour grouped dog walk.

Image

Lovely weather, and a lovely scenic walk. A good time was had by all the doggies, especially playing in the water… Even Misty couldn’t resist getting her paws wet today!

So once they were all tired out and dropped off at home, we went on to Sam and Millies house for another hour dog walk round Ferny Dale nature reserve in Buxton.

ImageImage

After a lovely hour walking round the woods with Sam and Millie it was time for the last walk of the day with the gorgeous Jack, again in Buxton.

Image

Next on the agenda was to go and drop some keys off, then on to New Mills to feed the cats Alfie and Charlie. Alfie is the most cuddliest cat I have ever met and sits on my knee while he gets a fuss. Cat sitting and small pet sitting seem to be trending during holiday times.

Image

Last but not least was to Combs to visit my own pony Tilly for some equine therapy, to feed her and give her a good groom as she has hippo tendencies!

Image

So now we’re back in chapel en le frith and it’s time for Holly and I to have tea and chill out to recuperate for another action packed day tomorrow!!

 

All Animals Welcome birthday!!

1010594_669553543058579_2006094623_n

So, All Animals Welcome has now been in business for over 12 months. Time has flown so quickly. From our first job of looking after some hens, we are now well established and are looking after so many animals. Dog walking is nearly at full capacity, mornings are spent working on a farm with shetland ponies and sheep. We are getting busier with small pets such as cats, rabbits and guinea pigs to the larger of horses.

I had a lot of help and support whilst setting up from my family and friends, I can’t thank them all enough as I wouldn’t be where I am now. I also owe a lot to two local dog walkers have been brilliant with their advice and referrals!

Back to it!

What a beautiful day!!! So after a very quiet two weeks, dog walking is now back on with the return of Misty & Douglas.

Today started off as normal as any, mucking out Herbie and Star the shetlands and then walking round the land checking the fencing and cleaning up after 5 horses! Afterwards I went to muck out Tosca and Pinto and took Bobby and Dolly on a lovely walk through the woods on Taxal moor.

Next was on to pick up my dad who sometimes comes to join me on walks (when the weathers nice!!) to take Douglas and Misty, accompanied by Holly round Solomons Temple.

Next on the agenda was to drop Misty and Douglas off, go to check on my own little pony; Tilly and then to take Bobby and Dolly out again.

After a nice breaking in day after the holidays I can relax and prepare myself for the next few days of mayhem.
LOTS more doggies for walking, a new dog to meet this week, Fudge the Spaniel who we will be walking whilst her owners are on holiday.
