Doggy Walks ‘n’ Play

The back story to Doggy Walks’n’Play

Setting up Doggy Walks’n’Play is the culmination of a life time ambition for myself. Many, many moons ago I failed a medical to go into the RAF as a dog handler and ended up pursuing an alternative career. For the whole of my working life since, I have wanted to find a way to spend my life working with dogs, and now I am. In the interim years, I have I owned and trained my own dogs for over 40 years, within the last 25 years being dedicated to German Shepherds. I enjoyed competitive obedience, working trials and scent work and tracking, with some fun agility thrown in. I continue to study with the British College of Canine Studies and have undertaken various other workshops. I help at Just for Dogs Dog Rescue, the time spent with the rescue dogs is the most rewarding way of spending some time and has provided me with exceptional experience working with all shapes and sizes of dog, some that have had difficult lives leading them to have behavioural challenges. Along with the knowledge and experience gained along the way in terms of caring for your dogs, one of the most valuable experiences I have gained is the fact that I have been a customer. In my previous life, I have had to arrange day care and walking for my dogs throughout the UK, this has taught me the most about the love, care and attention you expect from us while we care for your dog. The demands I made of the people caring for my own dogs are what drive our philosophy when caring for your dog.  These are written in tablets of stone at Doggy Walks’n’Paly, if you place your dog in our care, we will treat them as much a part of our family as they are yours.                                      Jon Rayner Founder

Our Philosophy

We treat all the dogs we care for with the same love, care and attention as we do our own. Our dogs need more than “just a walk”, they need physical, mental and social interaction. All handling and training is driven by our belief in positive reinforcement, patient handling and building partnerships. If a dog makes a mistake, we look to ourselves to understand what we can learn and how we can support the dog better.
