A day in the life of a dog walker
Bella, a four year old retriever, has been staying for the past 3 weeks. She loves home boarding and gets on with Evie very well. Monday is the day her owners are coming home. Monday is the day Bella decides to roll in a massive pile of horse manure, all fresh and green. Monday is a really good day for Bella to have a bath!
It’s lovely having dogs to stay, I’m licenced by Cornwall Council to home board 3 dogs at a time but restrict this number to 2 to provide a more exclusive service.
So Bella has gone home now and all is quiet at the Piran Pets Pad. It’s great catching a bit of one to one time with Evie before the next four legged guest arrives. A break also gives me a chance to catch up with cleaning beds and towels!
Today hasn’t been the best day to be a dog walker. I used three sets of waterproofs but none of the dogs seemed to mind getting soaked. If anything, the rain made them all frisky. I did my afternoon ‘Little dog Trek’ at Chapel Coombe in St Agnes and this provided a bit of shelter for the little dogs – who all ended up going in the stream in any case. Towels, coats and van are now all dry ready for another soaking tomorrow!
