How to become a Piran Pets VIP (Very Important Pooch)

There are many benefits to becoming a Piran Pets VIP.  At Piran Pets Adventure Treks there are certain services that are only available to Piran Pets VIPs.  This ensures that all of the dogs in our care know each other and get along.  For this reason we no longer look after dogs who are in Cornwall on holiday.  We offer a local service for local dogs.  Some of the exclusive services available to you as a VIP include :-

  • Home Boarding
  • House Sitting
  • Saturday Super Treks & Fun Day Sundays
  • Access to a closed facebook page especially for Piran Pets VIPs where you can view the latest photos, stories, offers and news.
  • Access to multiple walk discounts

To apply to become a Piran Pets VIP you will need to do the following…….

  1. Contact Nicky to arrange a free consultation by email: nicky@piranpets.com or by phone: 07737843781
  2. Complete a pet sitting agreement form
  3. Your dog will then accompany Nicky on a trial walk to determine their suitability – at Piran Pets Adventure Treks we like to ensure all our dogs are super friendly!

Once you have successfully completed this application process you will have access to all of the VIP services on offer.

Dogs Love Adventure Treks!

Since focussing on adventure treks, Piran Pets have been rewarded by seeing so many happy dogs. Dogs playing with each other on the beaches, in the woods and across the sand dunes. The fast paced walks use up energy and provide them with much needed exercise.

They also offer lots of different stimulation. Your dogs are stimulated by their changing surroundings, by the different smells, by water and by sand. They are stimulated by each other. Most of the Piran Pets Adventure dogs know each other so they have already bonded and developed a group dynamic. In addition to all of this they are also stimulated by the many other different dogs and humans we meet on our exciting adventures.

The Wednesday Retriever Romp has proved very popular, providing an hour and a half of exciting fun for this water loving breed. We have been enjoying the empty beaches – one of the positive outcomes of bad weather The dogs just love bouncing all over each other, splashing through the waves and chasing each other across the dunes. I especially love to run down some of the steeper dunes at Holywell Bay, with 6 retrievers in tow and lots of barking and happy wagging tails!

On Fridays, the Big Dog Adventure Treks have also been very well attended. We have been enjoying a few Friday afternoons going off piste at Idless. As soon as paws hit the bouncy woodland floor the dogs are so energised, they chase each other, chase smells and enjoy a cleansing dip and cool down after so much adventure.

The smaller dogs can’t always walk so far so I always tailor their walks to suit smaller paws – but they still have lots of fun and adventures, but with dogs of their own size who won’t flatten them in play or knock them over!

Whether big or small, your dog will love Piran Pets Adventure Treks!

Let your dog’s adventure start here.

Specialised Walks Offered by Piran Pets

Dogs of a certain breed love walking and interacting together. In group walks, dogs of a breed generally tend to flock together. This gave me the idea of offering specialised walks for particular breeds.

Retriever Romp

On Wednesday afternoons I now offer a retriever only walk. The retrievers are loving it. They are big dogs who love to jump on each other and chase balls. They especially seem to share a love for water and love the beach, particularly the rock pools. Walks are individually tailored to meet the requirements of this breed. I do try to stay away from mud though!!!

Littler dogs

On Tuesday and Thursday afternoons I offer a group walk specifically for smaller breeds (currently well attended by chihuahas, cockapoos and small spaniels). Some of the smaller breeds can be intimidated by the larger dogs so this walk offers an opportunity for the smaller dogs to enjoy a run around and play with other dogs of a similar size. The smaller dogs really come into their own on this walk.

Cockadoodlepoo!

In the last few years there has been a massive increase in the number of different poodle crosses. Labradoodles, cockapoos, yorkipoos to name but a few. These dogs love to interact and run around with a ball and enjoy a specialised walk together on Monday afternoons.

If you are interested in introducing your dog to a specialised walk, please contact Nicky 07737843781
