WHO WE ARE & WHAT WE DO
Hi Fellow Dog Lover!
I'm Jason, Owner and Play Leader here at The Dog Play Co.
I've had a dog in the family from the day I was born. My first dog was an Irish Setter called Monty. He was the thing that got me crawling when I was a baby, he let me practice standing up holding onto his back and then he helped me walk when I was ready to take my first steps. Then there was no stopping us! We caused my parents so much bother! There are photo's in the family album of me and him hiding behind the sofa eating a block of cheese straight from the fridge! That's just one of the many stories I could tell you about our antics... I've grown up around dogs and have never been without one, they have been my best friends throughout my entire life. I understand how attached we all get to our dogs, they are our children, small, furry children! I could talk dogs all day, However I will get back to the point...
In 2016 I decided to turn my love of dogs into a business and I have been running a successful dog walking business ever since. I know I'm biased but I think I have the best job in the world! I spend my day playing with dogs.
Over my many years of owning and working with dogs, It's safe to say I've learnt a thing or two about how to interact with dogs... My customers often ask me what my secret is? Why does their dog return home so happy? My secret (if you can call it that) is Playing! Play is the best thing ever to a dog, it's even ranked above food for most dogs! However many owners don't realise how important it actually is. This is a skill you need to master if you want a happier dog!
To find out more about the advantages of playing with your dog, check out the PLAY page above.
It's this knowledge of play and the benefits it comes with that has inspired me to start The Dog Play Co.
We believe that every dog deserves to play, and our mission is to provide the services and facilities your dog needs to do that. We will also offer pointers for the owners too! If you stick to a regular play schedule with your dog you will see for yourself how happy they become and you never know, they may get down from the sofa when they're asked... Who am I kidding, its called FURniture for a reason!
As we are dog play specialists we want to make sure your dog gets the most out of our play sessions... So all our staff receive comprehensive Play Training, they are also DBS checked; Qualified in Dog First Aid and Fully Insured. Personally I also hold qualifications in Dog Walking and Canine Psychology too. This all means that your dog is in safe hands with us; they will have a great play time and return home happy and ready for a nap!
