Welcome to Joyful Hounds, a professional dog walking and puppy sitting service in Wandsworth, South London

Joyful Hounds was set up by Gary Richmond-Wells to provide a friendly, professional and reliable dog walking and puppy visit service covering Wandsworth, Earlsfield, Clapham, Balham and Battersea in South London.

Dog walking:  Here at Joyful Hounds the happiness, enrichment andHappy Hounds with Gary at Joyful Hounds safety of all dogs in our care is our number one priority.

With this in mind Joyful Hounds walk dogs in small groups of no more than four dogs, and we transport them safely in a specially adapted, fully ventilated Joyful Hounds dog van for maximum comfort and safety with minimum stress.

This manageable number ensures each dog within the group gets individual attention, support and input from Gary, who holds a Diploma in Dog Behaviour. With Gary’s expertise and handling a small number of dogs, we can strengthen the rapport between dog and handler so that the dogs have a wonderful and fun time on their walkies.

Puppy visits:  It is essential that our Junior Joyful Hounds (8 weeks up to 6 months) are exercised regularly and socialised otherwise they can become frustrated and destructive.

Here at Joyful Hounds we offer our Junior Joyful Hounds a half hour puppy visit so as not to over exercise or over stimulate puppy.  This half hour includes-

Junior Joyful Hound Puppy
* letting puppy into the garden for a toilet break (after inoculations this can become a short walk outside)
* feeding (if required) and refreshing water bowl
* play time with plenty of cuddles

* if your puppy has had an accident we will clean it up

If puppy is left alone all day we recommend two or more visits. Puppy visits are subject to availability.

Gary Richmond-Wells is Dog First Aid Trained, Police Checked and Insured, giving you peace of mind your dogs are in safe, loving and experienced hands.
