Canine to 5
Sheffield Dog Walking
What we do
If you live in the Sheffield area and are busy working long hours or shift work, or maybe your circumstances or ill health mean that you are unable to give your much loved dog the amount of exercise they need, then perhaps we can help!
We can come to your home and take your dog out for a walk, or maybe just give him/her company for a while, provide fresh water, let them out to toilet, administer medication if necessary and of course give them lots of love and fuss!
We can also take care of your cats and other small pets while you are away or on holiday. We will call in and feed them, provide fresh water, a clean litter tray and give them fuss and attention.
As these services involve us entering your home please rest assured that we are fully police checked and the founder of Canine To 5 has worked in a position of trust in the financial industry for over 19 years. We also hold full Public Liability Insurance.
All services include a free initial consultation, where we meet face to face, discuss all of your requirements and learn more about your pet/s. It gives you the opportunity to get to know us and ask any questions you may have. If you are happy, all the relevant paperwork can be filled in and dates/ time agreed. Every effort is made to maintain your pet/s happiness and wellbeing while in our care at all times.
Dogs can be walked on a one-to-one basis, or on a group walk. Our dog walking service is tailored to your requirements. We will, if requested, refresh your dog’s water on our return, give your dog a treat, towel dry when wet, wipe his/her paws, feed, or anything else your dog requires. We are happy to practice any on-going training with your dog on the walk.
Group walks are especially good for socialization and allows for more interaction with other dogs. All dogs will be walked on lead initially. However, once we feel we have built up a sufficient relationship with your dog and feel it is appropriate, we will be happy to walk your dog(s) off lead should you wish.
If you choose a group walk we try very hard to match personalities in each doggie group and once the group is put together, it is constantly assessed.
Long-lead walks /
Basic Recall Training
If your dog has not been let off the lead before, or is new to the area we will assess him/her and, with your permission, try them on a long 10-metre lead. This way we can gradually build up their recall skills while having the security of being able to get them back. Our aim with every dog is that they become able to play and roam free while they are with us (so they really benefit from the exercise and enjoyment that our walks provide) and return to us when they are called.
We offer daily visits to provide your puppy with their undivided care and attention for a minimum of 30 minutes per visit. In this time we can feed, play and keep your puppy company indoors or once your puppy has had their injections, take him or her outdoors for short walks.
Canine to 5 all started with Joanne. She worked in the financial industry for over 19 years but over the last 12 years has got more and more involved in dog training. She loves training dogs. Being the proud owner of Bull terriers it was essential that she gave them basic training skills.
Joanne owes it all to her first Bull Terrier Daisy. It made her realise that she wanted to give up the city 9-5 and work with dogs on a daily basis. Joanne also currently runs dog training and agility classes 3 nights a week with Sheffield Dog Training.
In 2015 she studied at International Animal Behaviour Training Centre and successfully passed the Instructing Pet Dog Owners Assistant Instructor course which is part of the KCAI Kennel Club Accreditation Scheme.
