My lovely dogs enjoying the sun

Canine First Aid Workshop

Today I attended the above. I wanted to say it was such a good workshop, whether your going to just refresh or its your first time. It covered many areas that could happen whilst you are out and about with your dog(s) and how to apply the correct first aid. It's not a replacement for seeing a vet but it ensures the dog is attended to in the correct way to enable you to get to the vet. It also covers CPR (with a dummy dog) and applying leg and head bandages to real dogs.

Our course was held at Champion Dogs in Prenton and was run by a qualified veterinary nurse. Her contact details are 07788956164 01616260269. There is also a facebook page for Canine First Aid Workshops - UK North


I'm been walking Bryn for a while now but in June the family are moving to North Wales, so I will be saying fair well to my little friend. I'm going to have a hard time saying goodbye, you really get attached to the animals you care for. I have been given a reference from Zoe and Mike which I'd like to share.

Hazel has been walking our lurcher Bryn for two years now. Bryn was a very nervous rescue dog but Hazel is his bestfriend. Hazel takes him out for a fantastic walk and run each week day, where he has the time of his life. He always comes back to Hazel and even waits each morning, looking out of the window for her. I completely trust Hazel with Bryn and I am so glad we found her. She cares about Bryn so much and treats him like her own dog. I cannot recommend Hazel enough as a fantastic dog walker.

Bryn with Freddie, they go out for walks 5 days per week. Freddie is going to miss Bryn so I'll be looking for a new friend for him.

Business going great and having a lovely time with all my clients

I've not updated the blog for a while but didn't realise it was that long ago. My business is still going strong, I have lots of lovely dogs to walk daily and various cats that I see on a regular basis. I'm very lucky indeed. Today I'm off to a Canine First Aid course to refresh myself and hopefully pick up new information. I'm also planning to get some new photos taken to update here.

New client update

I've been walking Duffer since February, he's a hungarian vizsla cross. Duffer came from Hungary but unfortunately ended up in a rescue centre, lucky for him hes found a fab home. He's great.

These 5 dogs live in the same household where I have been asked to do half hour visits so they can get the opportunity to go to the loo during the day and also have a fuss. All 5 are rescues, Monty is very nervous so it will take time for him to get to know me but the others all enjoy getting a fuss and treats. Pictured below is Rug, Ollie, Monty, Max and Bea

Hamish has been in his new home for 6 weeks and I started walking him this week, so he's still learning all about his new life in his new home.

Lucas lives with her brother and 2 other cats, I look after them on an adhoc basis.

New clients

I thought I'd update some pictures of new clients that have come to Happy Tails Pet Care.

Feebee and Jim are two lovely Newfoundlands that I started walking in Dec 2010.

I've been walking and caring for Charlie (Lab)on an adhoc basis since July 2010, my first assignment was to care for him on the day of his owners wedding. This entailed two walks during his time alone and also taking him along to part of the wedding so he could be included in the wedding photos. I was booked a few times last summer where clients wanted their dog(s) to be in their wedding pics. Daisy a English Springer Spaniel joined the family in December 2010, so I also now get the opportunity to walk and care for her. Spent alot of time with them this weekend and what a pleasure they both are.

Last week I started to visit Jessica an English Bull Terrier (10 weeks old) and Jasper an English Springer Spaniel (8 weeks old). Both clients needed someone to pop in whilst the puppies where on their own. Jessica is very relaxed and Jasper is so bouncy.

Reference from Mr & Mrs Leigh, Bebington

We found Hazel approximately 10 months ago when we became the proud owners of our white german shepherd, Marley. We were looking for someone to help with walking him when we couldn’t be there.

Hazel has been a god send, doing much more than she had to on some occasions! Taking Marley whenever needed, even at short notice, sometimes to Storeton Woods/ the Beach, where he has a wonderful time. Hazel has a wonderful manner and Marley feels at ease with her, he is so excited when he sees her and pops straight in the back of her car without a look back at us!. It makes us feel very happy that he is in such good hands and is having a good time.

The service Hazel provides is excellent. I would trust Hazel 100% with both Marley and our house/personal things as Hazel does have access to our house when we are not there. He always returns very happy and content after his play and has a good rest when back at home.

I don’t think there is anyone more dedicated on the Wirral. We would recommend Hazel/Happy Tails Pet Care to anyone that is looking for services she can provide. She is very trustworthy, very personable and we now consider her as a friend to the family and not only Marley.

Thanks Hazel for everything you have done and continue to do for Marley.
