Our Services

 

We cover the villages of Arnside, Silverdale, Warton, Beetham, Hale, The Yealands and Milnthorpe.

Each service starts with a complimentary  ‘meet and greet’ so that we can get to know you and your dog’s needs and find the right combination of walks, training or activities that will help keep your dog busy and entertained.

Enrichment Walks

Enrichment Walks are packed with fun training games and activities led by an experienced and qualified dog professional, exercising your dog both physically and mentally to really tire them out for the day.

Enrichment Visit

Mental stimulation is just as rewarding to a dog as physical exercise and our individualised enrichment sessions will keep your dog’s brain active and healthy and also give them some nice gentle exercise.

Puppy Care Programme

Leaving your puppy when you need to return to work can be a worrying time. My puppy care programme has been specifically designed with working customers in mind to support you and your puppy during their early development all the way through to them graduating to adult dog group walks.

Words cannot express how grateful and happy we are to have such a warm caring person to look after Phoebe.

Thank you so much for the love, support and care you show to both Phoebe and us both. We love the photos and videos showing what a fun-filled time she has when she’s with you, plus her four-legged friends of course. Phoebe is always happy, safe and well cared for, nothing seems too much trouble for Kate and we would not hesitate to recommend her services to anyone.

I feel at ease knowing my dog is in such loving and respectful hands.

I researched Sth Cumbria & Nth Lancashire for many months for a doggie daycare facility but found a unique 1:1 training, dog walking & dog minding company with Kate from Sniff and Wagg. Kate helped with some early puppy training techniques, through to group walks. The integration into group walks was done with such thought and care. Kate has always been flexible to specific areas of training as a ‘top-up’ or with techniques that need deeper integration. My dog always returns happy and pleasantly tired after spending a stimulating and safe time with Kate and other dogs.

Kate is extremely knowledgeable, trustworthy and Ted thoroughly enjoys his time with her and the other dogs

From the minute we brought our new puppy home; Kate was at the end of the phone offering help and support, providing us with vital information as to how best to care for him.  She came round within the first week to introduce herself to him so that he could start to form a relationship with her and before he was 12 weeks old, she had started to train some basic commands.  We had 1-1 training sessions for him within the first 6 months, where Kate would come 2 or 3 times a week.  As he started to get older we could introduce Kate’s enrichment sessions.  Ted is coming up to 12 months old now and he still sees Kate on a weekly basis for group and enrichment walks, which he thoroughly enjoys. 

Kate is an amazing lady who not only is great at understanding what dogs need but also great at treating dogs as individuals.

Wilf adores being with Kate on his enrichment walks. It gives us peace of mind that Wilf is part of Kate’s family. I cannot recommend Kate highly enough. Kate is truly a special person with amazing skills when it comes to dogs.

Kate is amazing, our girls love her & can’t wait to out with the gang.
