All About Our Award-Winning Dog Walking Service

SPPOT’s Volunteer Dog Walkers have completed over 100 hours of accredited training and are incredibly dedicated and hard-working.

SPPOT provides dog walking services in most Pembrokeshire towns and many surrounding villages. 

We regularly train more Volunteer Dog Walkers to cover more areas and more dogs.

We are able to walk dogs on a schedule to suit you, which could be once a week, twice a day or any pattern that you need (subject to availability at the time of booking). 

We offer a free of charge initial home visit to meet you and your dog and discuss your dog walking requirements. This will usually include taking your dog for a complimentary walk, in order to assess which of our dog walkers would suit your dog best.

SPPOT’s Volunteer Dog Walkers will usually walk your dog close to home to maximise the time they have to exercise which can include the beach, woodland walks or countryside. 

They will then dry your dog off if needed, refresh their dog’s water and leave a written report.

Beneficial for both dogs and people

SPPOT has a unique approach to both people and dogs, as we are an innovative social enterprise.

We recruit and train Dog Walkers & Day Carers who are all volunteers or supported by us on placement.

SPPOT trains and works with people who experience health and social barriers to work and education.

Online booking for regular customers

SPPOT offers an online system for customers to book regular dog walks or request ad-hoc dog walks. 

You will be sent a monthly invoice for your walks, which can be paid by BACS or debit or credit card at SPOT DHQ or over the phone. We prefer not to take cash or cheques.

Safety & Quality Assurance

SPPOT’S Volunteer Dog Walking Service is fully insured, risk assessed and professionally managed by us.

We walk dogs for people who require the service at very competitive rates because we are a social enterprise and reinvest all our income into training more Volunteer Dog Walkers. 

We offer significant concessions to customers who find it difficult to walk their dogs due to mobility or long term illness or disability.

Your dog is our priority

Safe

Our Team is fully trained, insured and professionally managed. Volunteer Dog Walkers are equipped with a spare lead, long line, dog first aid kit, treat bag, treats, mud & water absorbing towel, hand wash and poo bags

Care

All of our staff and volunteers are qualified and/or accredited in the care and training of dogs using only positive, scientifically proven techniques.

Bespoke

Every Volunteer Dog Walker ensure your dog’s individual care plan is followed – based on your instructions.

Clean

We will ensure your dog has a great walk and if that involves mud, we will do our best to clean your dog before settling them back at home.

Comfy

We know that rest & relaxation is just as important as exercise, so our Volunteer Dog Walkers will toilet your dog, dry your dog, adjust bedding, change water and feed if needed.

Outdoor

Our Volunteers thrive on being outdoors and will be there, come rain, shine, wind, snow and anything else the Great British Weather throws at us. However, if it is too risky outdoors due to a heatwave or ice-age, we will entertain your dog at home instead.

Bex

Fabulous training advice and information, all animal friendly and enjoyed by all. Well done and thank you.

Peter

My wife and I have been taking our dog (puppy) to their training sessions and the progress he makes at each session is truly remarkable. The simple techniques demonstrated are effective and easy for the dog and handlers to understand.
Natalie is recognised in the “doggy” world as being an outstanding trainer with a deep insight into canine psychology.

Gordon

An amazing place doing an amazing job for amazing people.

Dawn

Sppot do amazing work with dogs and people – always with the dogs best interests at heart. Our dog loves her sessions there & we are completely confident leaving her knowing she is in good hands.

Trudie

Our dog Nova goes to daycare once a week at SPPOT and she absolutely loves. She’s normally joined at my hip but doesn’t even look back at me when I leave. They tailor Nova’s day to her needs and nothing is too much trouble. We really couldn’t recommend them enough.

Amy

We took Alfie to Simpson Cross on Thursday 7th Aug. He was there until after 4pm when we collected him and he was worn out with all the play he’d had. He has a new friend in Keith, who he was assigned to for the day and I think the feeling was mutual ! He will be going back soon! Lorna

Lorna

Wonderful people and a wonderful service. Our dog looks forward to spending time in doggy day care and we have also used the dog walking service in the past. Very professional approach and more then happy to let our boy be looked after by them.

Martin

Izzy had a fab time in doggy daycare and has grown up to be a lovable, friendly and sociable dog!!

Becky

Have been using Sppot’s dog walking services for a number of years. Would highly recommend the service, very reliable and caring.

Caroline

Monty loves his days at Doggy Daycare and I feel so confident leaving him in the capable hands of the team. Lots of walks, playtime and sleep! (Although monty is like the Duracell bunny so he hardly ever chills!) highly recommend.

Annie

Would thoroughly recommend, our dogs are in safe, enthusiastic and very caring hands.

Caroline

From day 1 SPPOT went out of their way to find our puppy space in their daycare service. They were so flexible and really helped us out so I could work and our dog was never left on his own. A year on or dog still absolutely loves his time with SPPOT and I love the fact each dog has 1to1 care. They manage to support the needs of each dog and make such an effort to make every visit fun for the dog. Think you guys are incredibly professional and fabulous at what you do. Thank you for all your hard work.

Kathryn
We took Skye to the foundation clicker training which was amazing and fun.
Now she goes to doggy daycare every Friday and she loves it.
I highly recommend Kerri and the SPPOT team to everyone. They’re amazing and friendly. Thank you for taking care of our little girl.
Sarah
Had a great morning attending the recall workshop run by the wonderful team at SPOTT. The workshop was fun, relaxed and very informative. There was lots of practical advice and great ideas for fun ways to help teach our very lively puppy and us the skills and confidence to help keep him under control in public places. We had a lovely walk around the racecourse this evening putting our new skills into practice.
Many thanks to you all.
Jo

These people are brilliant. Just love their doggy day care service and more importantly so does my dog. I completely trust these people. How they mange to organise and deliver what they do is amazing. When I collect my dog after day care he is always grinning and I can tell he has been utterly satisfied, with his constant need for games and attention completer satiated – and knowing my dog that is saying something! He also looks completely destressed and more relaxed then normal. The training they do with him really helps me also and have noticed he is better behaved at home. They really care about giving the dog what they need, in my dogs case balance between mental and physical stimulation.
I also love their online booking system so easy to use and monthly billing, very user friendly and convenient for last minute changes to bookings. Nice job well done SPPOT.

Scott

Joey loves daycare. Staff are all lovely and very helpful. Fabulous facilities.

Jemma

SPPOT have been walking my dog while my family have been away and they have been brilliant, coming early as its been so hot. My dog is quite shy but she has loved both volunteers. Will be recommending you to everyone.

Claire

Maisie is a newcomer at Spott this week. I cannot praise the staff and care that Maisie has received enough! One tired pooch when she’s had so much fun I actually have peace and cuddles with her during the evening. So good to let her mix with other dogs in a wonderfully controlled environment and constant attention and exercise. Well done sppot.

Helen

Highly recommended, lovely staff and such a great location! Really has helped my crazy 7 month cockerpoo calm down loads considering he’s still a pup! Completely changed him and we get so much joy out of him! Keep up the good work girls and guys.
