The new dogs-buddy mobile on the road soon…

2013-09-03 15.49.55If Batman has his bat mobile then Dogman (as I’ve been referred to when collecting our lovely pooches) can have his!

Although it won’t have super gadgets, the new mobile has been undergoing some changes to make the journey for your pooches even more enjoyable! It will be fitted with a padded waterproof flooring, and large cages with a comfortable surface which will have water bowls attached for a drink after a good run and play in the park.  It is a smooth drive so will be picking all your hounds up in due course.  Here are some sneaky pics of the mobile…

Welcome to Tilly!

Tilly!We had a new member to the gang today – Tilly!

Tilly is a 3-year-old golden Labrador, who joined us on her first walk today. I met with Tilly’s owners yesterday, and had a good chat about her and we decided to start the walks from today.

I took her to Longford Park with Mickey, and she had a good time mooching, sniffing and enjoying the sights! To begin with she will be on her lead so we can build on her trust and recall, and we’ll introduce her to new pooch pals very soon.

Here are some pics from today, and there will be more over the next few weeks.

Worthington Park, Sale.

2013-06-25 13.18.21I only discovered Worthington park this week while looking for a different place to walk in Sale. I must have drove past so many times and not realised, it was only when I googled parks in the area that I discovered it!

I went along with Boris and Dexter on Tues 24th June, and then again today (Wed 25th June) with Little Rosie and Freddie.  I highly recommend this park if you’re planning on looking for somewhere to take the pooches and/or children out as it’s a lovely looking place and as the website proudly states it has won the Green Flag award for the last 2 years running.  You can certainly tell as it is one of the cleanest and well kempt parks I’ve been to.

It has a bowling green, play areas, toilets, quiet areas of grass land and a couple of large open spaces as shown on the map I’ve added below.

Worthington Park is located at the end of Cheltenham Drive in the centre of Sale – postcode M33 2DQ. Other main entrances to the Park are on Broad Road M33 2ES and via Charlton Drive M33 2BJ.

Welcome to (little) Rosie!

2013-06-19 12.37.13We have another Rosie who joined the gang today! We’ll have to call them Little Rosie, and Big Rosie to avoid confusion, although they were confused today when I was calling Rosie and the one nearest to me was looking up as if to say “I’m here”

Little Rosie is a lovely 7 month old Cock-a-poo who came out with Cleo and Big Rosie. She had lots of fun chasing, playing and enjoying the sun! She was very well-behaved and I can see she’ll have plenty more fun in the weeks ahead. Here are some pics..2013-06-19 11.36.33Big Rosie & Little Rosie2013-06-19 11.46.15

Welcome to Mabel!

2013-06-17 10.15.52Mabel the boxer joined us for walks yesterday, and has met 4 new pooch pals already! I always wonder what the first walk will be with a new canine client, ie if they travel well in the car, will they get on with other dogs, how will they react with me for the first time but I didn’t need to worry. She was great in every aspect and just loves being outside socialising and enjoying herself 🙂

I have met with Mabel and her owner but that was quite a while back. We got chatting and here we are getting out and about on our walks. Mabel may only be with us temporarily so we’ll make sure she has a great time each day. Here are some pics of her having a good time…

Welcome to the fun, Boris!

2013-05-20 14.05.25A big welcome along to the gang for Bouncing Boris, who is a cute silky brown Cocker Spaniel!

I met Boris and his owner a few weeks back prior to their move over to Sale, which happened over the weekend. Boris joined us for his first walk today, and despite all the stress with moving and new surroundings he hit the ground running and bouncing about!

He was very cagey when I first met him which I was told he is like with most new people he meets. No worries on that score though after a couple of treats and a run around Wythenshawe Park with Mickey, Monty and Smokey, I was his new best friend.

Boris will get to meet more new pooch pals and explore new areas over the next few weeks so look out for pics of him soon.

Turn Moss Playing Fields

I’ve not done a write-up for a while so here’s a local one to Chorlton, which is a favourite spot for dog walkers. Turn Moss Playing Fields which is just over the road from Longford Park, is a very big field which is handy for playing ball with your pooches as you’ll mostly likely see when you pay a visit there. It is there for football games and will be quite busy on weekend mornings, or when there are organised football games on.

It is actually part of Chorlton Ees Nature Reserve (which I’ll cover very soon) and if you’re out walking your dog through the paths of the Ees you’ll find your dog will be excited to run onto this being a large field for them to let off some steam and have a good run! If you just wanted to walk around all of the field this could take about 40 minutes or so and you could definitely fill an hour of playing chase the ball if you wanted to give your dog some good exercise, or just a good mooch and sniff around.

I was there on Saturday on taking Millie and Henry out and here is a couple of pics:-

Feeling hot, hot, hot!

2013-05-07 14.54.55Well after a nice Bank holiday break, it was back with a bang today, with lots of dogs to walk – 12 in total! Tuesday is usually a busy day anyway, so I’m usually prepared but the weather was gloriously hot today the pooches were all hot and bothered in and out of the car! Good job I took plenty of water with me!

I was out the door this morning by 8.15 and back home just after 5pm and in that period I covered Fallowfield, Hulme, Chorlton, Stretford, Old Trafford, Sale, and Northenden in picking the dogs up, and 4 parks – Platt Fields Park, Birchfields Park, Longford Park, and Chorlton Ees. I was definitely in need of a brew (and cold drink) and a good shower after all that. The pooches all had a good time and the difference of when they all get in the car, to when they are all travelling back is noticeable – happy and excited on the way, and flaked out on the way back 🙂  Job well done I’d say!

Here are some highlights…

Welcome to the gang, Sully!

Sully!Today, I visited Sully who is a lovely and playful chocolate Labrador, who is labr(adorable)! See what I did there 😉

Sully will be joining us for walks next week and his owners say that he loves to play ball and hang around with other pooches. They’ll be no problems arranging this for him!

He also likes to swim and have a paddle so in this nice warm weather we’ve been having recently, we’ll have to take him somewhere that has a lake or river. I was told he also likes carrots so there should be no worries about him missing the ball with his good eyesight.

Welcome to the team Sully and we’ll look forward to taking you out soon 🙂

Welcome to Dexter! :-)

Dexter!Dogs Buddy would like to welcome Dexter to the gang! Dexter is a black miniature labradoodle, and him and his owner yesterday to discuss walks. Dexter is very cute and could smell the treats on me when I arrived and that was that we became instant friends.

I was told that Dexter is a very sociable doggy and loves to explore around the parks, and can’t wait to get out with some new pooch pals!  We’ll be doing plenty of that when he begins his first walk tomorrow, and he’ll be meeting up with some of our canine clients.

We went for a short walk as part of his initial meeting arrangement, and he walked by my side on his lead with no problems at all.

Look out for some pics of his adventures soon.
