1 September ’09

September 1st, 2009

Let The Dogs Out has been up & running for 3 months now & I’m pleased to say that the service seems to be a success!

I am currently walking dogs of all shapes & sizes from Pathhead, Dalkeith & Roslin in Midlothian, Cockenzie, Wallyford, Pencaitland, Prestonpans & Haddington in East Lothian, & Colinton in Edinburgh. My feet are well travelled & glad to get a rest at the end of each day, but I’m loving every minute of it!

Clients should note that there are some small changes planned to the existing service. These are outlined below & available to view in a pdf document here.


As of 1/10/9,

  • the rate I charge for 30 minutes walking time will increase from £5 to £7.

  • the rate for 1 hour walking time will remain the same at £10.

  • the charges for any additional dogs being walked from the same household also remain the same, at £3 per dog for 30 minutes walking time & £5 per dog for 1 hour walking time.

These changes reflect my experience since starting business in June that petrol & travel time costs work out the same for both 30 minute & 1 hour walks.

Walk times & durations

In order to make most efficient use of my time & petrol, whilst striving to meet each client’s individual requirements,

  • dogs who are due to be walked for 30 minutes may occasionally be walked for the longer time of 1 hour. This will be at no additional charge to the client. Please indicate if you do not wish your dog to be walked for longer than you have requested for whatever reason.

  • dogs due to be walked around midday may be walked within a window of 11am – 2pm, as this is, naturally, my busiest time of day. Again, please indicate if there is a reason why your dog cannot be walked within this more flexible time frame.

Wet weather

Now that the summer (ha!) is coming to an end, walks are bound to become wetter & muddier. I would appreciate if clients could leave out a designated towel to use for drying their dog(s). Although I always carry some towels in the car, they are bound to become soggy pretty quickly on a wet day!


I will always try & give you at least 1 month notice of any dates on which I am unable to walk your dog(s). At present the only dates I am aware of between now & Christmas when this is the case are Friday 18th September & Saturday 31st October.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any concerns regarding the above changes.
