Welcome to Busters Dog Walking!

Dogs enjoying a Busters walk

New walks for 2020!

Busters is a brilliant service, I couldn't recommend it more. My dog's behaviour has improved dramatically due to the training provided, and just want to say thank you!

You are looking for a dog walker who turns up every day, when they say they will. Your dog is clever, so you want someone who will work their brain at the same time as their body. You are looking for a dog walker with expertise in speaking ‘dog’, so your dog will always be safe, where bullying is not allowed, and where your dog’s needs are fully understood. You want a walker who looks after and respects you and your home.

You and your dog will benefit from the experience, knowledge and skills we've gained since 2006. Looking after our human clients as well as walking hundreds of dogs from small puppies, through adolescence, into adulthood and then old age.

Busters Dogs operates three types of walks.

The original 'Boredom Busters' (45 or 60 minute walks)

Yes we're back!

Mixed size dog walks, open to all breeds, all sizes and all ages over 12 months. All we ask is that your dog has a reasonable recall, and that they don’t pull excessively on the lead. Walks will be grouped by choosing compatible playmates, but all dogs will still be required to use their brains as well as their bodies.

'Little Legs Small Dog Club' (45 minute walks)

Toy and small breeds only. Toy breeds, terriers and other companion breeds are taken out in a group to have fun together. Owning small dogs ourselves, we understand the challenges a small dog faces every day. Puddles become ponds, undergrowth becomes jungle, ditches become ravines. Being closer to the ground they will often want to stop and sniff more, and we understand this. Larger dogs running free or playing nearby can make some small dogs nervous of being squashed or knocked over. Walking with other dogs of similar size and temperament can make it more enjoyable for them, as they feel safe.

You are guaranteed a place on a walk every day that has small and toy breeds only. The fun and games are exactly the same as on a Boredom Busters walk, just appropriately resized.

Private walks (30 minutes)

Dog enjoying a private walk Dogs are walked on a 'one family' basis. To help with socialisation and training, one of Linda’s dogs joins the walks. This service is popular with owners of two or more dogs, as it is charged by time, rather than per dog. It can also be useful for shy or nervous dogs, as our dog will let them approach at their own pace, or just leave them alone if that’s what they want. We are currently unable to offer 'solo' walks.

These walks are ideal for pups 6- 9 months until they are ready to go onto a group walk. Training is given, and walks are merged slowly over time so they may ‘graduate’ to a group walk early. Giant breed dogs also do well on private walks.

How do our walks work?

All the dogs get their full walk time in a park or open space, or a walk around your local area. Plenty of time allowed for sniffing, games, brainwork, leg stretching, and doing their business. We operate up to three walks per day with pick-ups in Brentwood and Shenfield for you to choose from.

Please check our reviews on Facebook and Google to see what our customers have to say.

We would absolutely recommend Linda and her team. They are totally professional, but friendly, reliable and trustworthy. Linda has a fantastic knowledge of dog health and welfare needs, and gives very useful advice on training techniques. The dogs have the benefit of a visit during the day, which alleviates some of the guilt if we are out a little longer than expected. We would be lost without her!
