Professional Dog Walkers Code of Conduct - 11/04/2010

Paw Prints has great pleasure in announcing that we are officially recognised through Brighton & Hove City Council as 'Professional Dog Walkers'.

In November last year Brighton & Hove City Council decided to take the 'lead' and become the first local authority in the country to invite dog walking businesses to undergo an inspection and sign up to a code of conduct.

The idea for the voluntary scheme came from the council's Animal Welfare officers after hearing concerns from both members of the public and people offering dog walking services.

"Members of the public were worried about the growing number of people walking several dogs at once, and there were reports some behaving irresponsibly," said Animal Welfare Officer Amanda Teale.

We at Paw Prints were delighted to have a Council Animal Welfare Officer inspect our vehicle and were only too happy to sign and agree to the Dog Walkers Code of Conduct.

So whenever you are deciding on a dog walker always insist on checking whether they are a member of the scheme.

Best wishes

Daniel, Freya and Kenrick (woof woof!)
