COVID 19 Update
We are not out of the woods yet and unfortunately, we are still in a lockdown situation, we are operating a slightly reduced service for Essential Key Workers and essential walks with lots of care!
I have been lucky enough to have my 1st Jab and 2nd is booked so whilst this doesn’t make anyone immune, it does start to make me feel that we are slowly getting there!  It doesn’t mean we can be complacent and cleaning will remain until we are in more certain times.
Dog Boarding has started again and its great to see some clients starting to book.
The van is being steam cleaned and main contact points are being treated with an anti virucidal spray throughout the day. This is the best way to maintain a clean and safe working environment for us and our clients.
I would like to say a massive Thank you to a number of special clients that have supported us through this difficult time, you know who you are and you have been wonderful!

Smarter Dogs is a friendly and reliable Dog Walking, Dog Boarding and Concept/Reward based Dog Training business covering Clanfield, Horndean, Petersfield, Rowlands Castle, Waterlooville and the surrounding area in Hampshire and West Sussex.

Smarter Dogs are here to help relieve the worry and anxiety that pet owning in today’s busy lifestyle can bring. With us you can leave home guilt free, safe in the knowledge that your dog will be having a great time with new friends and getting that all important stimulation, love and exercise.

Smarter Dogs Dog Walking service is tailored to not only the dogs on that walk but the weather on that day.  We don’t walk in areas of high heat during the summer months and actively look for cooler, quieter locations so the dogs can enjoy their walk in their own space.

Your Dog is our responsibility, and we take it very seriously which is why every dog is checked before it comes out on a walk to ensure it will fit in with the other dogs.

Some Thoughts:

“There is no such thing as bad weather, only unsuitable clothing” – Alfred Wainwright

“Nature gives to every time and season some beauties of its own.” – Charles Dickens

On 1 October 2018 The Animal Welfare (Licensing of Activities Involving Animals) (England) Regulations 2018 came into force.

These have replaced a number of pieces of existing legislation at the end of 2018 and have provided a new single licensing regime for a number of animal licensing activities including Dog Boarding.

East Hants District Council (EHDC)have awarded us the highest rating of 5 Stars!
