Our Tailored Adventures and Walks

At PawPrints North East, we prioritize the comfort, happiness, and safety of your dog, as well as your peace of mind. With our team of experienced and professional dog walkers, you can rest assured that your furry friend is in good hands. We offer tailored adventures and walks that cater to your dog’s specific needs.

What Makes Us Stand Out From The Pack?

Small group walks

We believe in quality over quantity. That’s why we keep our group walks small, with a maximum of 5 dogs at a time. This allows us to maintain greater control and provide each dog with the appropriate amount of attention. Your dog will have a safe and enjoyable time with our small, closely monitored groups.


Experience matters when it comes to the well-being of your beloved pet. We are well-established and have been operating for 6 years, gaining valuable knowledge and expertise in the field. Our experience ensures that we can provide top-notch dog walking services that meet the highest standards of care and professionalism.

Team of walkers

With PawPrints North East, you don’t have to worry about relying on a single dog walker. We have a team of walkers, each handpicked for their love and passion for dogs. This means that we can provide consistent service even if your regular walker is unavailable. Plus, you’ll get to know and love all of our friendly, dog-loving team members!

Convenient app

Managing your dog’s walks has never been easier. We operate through an app that puts convenience at your fingertips. With your own login, you can effortlessly manage bookings, update your dog’s details, and make payments. Our user-friendly app ensures that you can stay connected and in control of your dog’s walking schedule, even when you’re on the go.

Referral scheme

We value our loyal customers and believe in rewarding them. That’s why we have a customer referral scheme in place. When you refer a friend to PawPrints North East, you’ll receive a free walk as our way of saying thank you. But that’s not all! Any new customer who signs up with a referral code will also receive a 10% discount on their first three walks. It’s a win-win situation for everyone!

What kind of walk would be suitable for your dog?

Pack Adventures

Our pack adventures are carefully tailored to suit each individual dog’s needs and are led by highly skilled and experienced professional dog walkers.

Lone Wolf Adventures

Our solo walks are ideal for those dogs that need a little more attention or those who don’t enjoy the company of others.

Wilderness Explorer Adventures

Our Ultimate Adventure.

Designed to offer the high energy dog a full-on adventure. We’ll plan a route, head out into the hills and get the miles in to give your dog an adventure to remember. Ideal for those dogs that can go all day. Also a fantastic option if your dog is on a weight loss program.


“Without fail each and every walk is full of fun and adventure. 100% reliable and flexible as needed. They clearly love dogs and want to give them a fantastic adventure every time. Going out as a mini pack really helps with socialisation skills and etiquette of how to play well.”

ā€” Monty

“We use PawPrints North East since we got our beautiful Lucy.
They supported us before she arrived to create a schedule that suited us, they helped when we got stuck and 3 years later they are giving her the best adventures ever.
She loves all her group walks. We love that they capture pictures that show the true nature of our dogs and it shows us they understand each member of their pack.
I know a lot people that use them and we all feel part of their community.
Well and the Humans behind this all are just amazing individuals.
Very highly recommended!”

ā€” Lucy

Dog Walking FAQs

How many dogs do you walk at one time? We believe that each dog deserves our proper attention, something that cannot be promised in large groups, so we stick to a maximum of 5 dogs in each group. We use our knowledge of each dog and our experience to ensure groups are suitably matched for maximum enjoyment for each dog, but we also ensure that they get to meet as many new pals as possible by mixing up the groups. Our pack adventures are a fantastic opportunity for your dog to socialise, build their confidence and have a great time burning off a good load of energy.

What times do you walk? We offer walks throughout the day, from early mornings into the evening. Our pack adventures are spread throughout the day but we can cater to your individual needs when we assign the walks. For example, if you leave early in the morning and a back home early afternoon, we will ensure your dog is taken out in the morning walks, or vice versa for the afternoon. You can see what time your dog will be taken out when you access your online customer portal and check their schedule for the week.

Can I specify what time I would like my dog walked? Absolutely, using your online customer portal you can request specific walks, rough times (e.g morning, afternoon etc) or leave it up to us. Whatever works best for you and your dog.

How long are your walks? Our walks are an hour in length, and this doesn’t include travel time, so you can expect your dog to be out anywhere from 60 minutes up to approximately 90 minutes, depending on where they fall in the order of pick ups and drop offs. We may cut walk times slightly if the weather is particularly bad as we need the extra time to ensure your dog is returned clean and dry.

What areas do you cover? Our dog walking services cover Backworth, Earsdon, Shiremoor, Holywell, Holystone, West Allotment, Killingworth, Monkseaton, North Shields, Tynemouth & Whitley Bay.

Do you clean the dogs after their walks? Yes, we each have a small shower unit, shampoo and plenty of towels so we can ensure that your dog is returned in a clean and presentable manner. However, we are not a full grooming service, we just make sure they are not wet, muddy and liable to leave footprints everywhere.

Do I need to be home when you collect my dog? No, not at all. We are insured to carry your key and they are labelled with a code that cannot be linked to your address. The majority of our clients are happy for us to have access and to have a key.

Do you have a minimum walks per week/month? No. We are happy to accommodate ad-hoc walks as and when you need us. You can simply log into your customer portal and request walks when you need them.

Do you do walks on weekends or bank holidays? We do offer walks on weekends and bank holidays, but on a request only basis. We don’t have any regular scheduled walks on those days but if we can help out, we will. There is an additional charge of 50% for walks on bank holidays.

Are you insured? Yes, we are fully insured for dog walking, and this also includes public liability insurance, lost or damaged keys, and injury to dogs in our care. You can see our insurance policy here.

What is your cancellation policy? We are as flexible as we can be when it comes to rearranging or cancelling walks, we understand that life happens and things change. Any changes or cancellations carried out outside of 24 hours before don’t incur any charges.

Do I have to pay for walks upfront? No. We operate our invoices on a 2 weeks in arrears system, so you only pay for what you’ve had. Your customer portal not only delivers your invoices and allows you to pay them, but also allows you to see exactly what days and at what times your dog was taken out so you can confirm this matches your records.

What happens in the event of an emergency? In the unlikely event of an emergency occurring, we will contact you immediately and make you aware of the situation. If care is immediately required we will take your dog to your nominated veterinary surgery or the nearest surgery if required. We carry first aid kits in our vehicles and have a network of other local dog walkers should we require assistance in a particular circumstance.
