Unleashed Pet Services dog walking in Oamaru offers you a choice of fun filled professional group walks that are great for socialising or a solo dog walk if you prefer. Whichever option you choose, all walks are fully supervised by a professional dog walker and your dog will get plenty of exercise, love and attention.
Before the fun starts on our walks, we need to meet you and your dog at our free initial consultation. We want to ensure that we meet all your dog’s individual needs and aim to be as flexible as possible and we’re sure you’d like to meet us too and know your dog is in safe hands.
There are lots of things we’d like to know about your dog. How do they get on with other dogs? Do they like kids? Are they happy and safe to walk off-lead? What kind of walks do they like? Can we give them treats as a reward?
Unleashed Pet Services dog walks take place at a variety of locations across Oamaru aimed to fulfil all your dog’s mental and physical needs. Most of our walks are for an hour but if you require other lengths of walks, we will try to meet your dog’s individual requirements subject to availability.
Whichever option you choose, you only pay for the actual walk time as collection, drop off and clean up time is covered by us plus we won’t forget to top up their water bowl before we leave and give out a few treats if allowed.
We will send you a WhatsApp message with photos to let you know how each walk has gone and that your dog is home and happy. With your permission, we’ll take a few photographs on most walks and put some of them on our Facebook and Instagram pages so you can see just how much they enjoy their walks.
All dogs must be fully up to date with vaccinations and flea and worm treated. Regrettably, we are unable to walk females in season on group walks, but we will try to accommodate them with solo walks wherever possible.
We Aim to

If you worry about leaving your pet home alone, whether it's for a couple of hours during the work day or longer trips out of town, we are here to provide your pets with the same love and care that they have experienced from you. We make every effort to ensure your pet is just as happy as if you were there yourself!
We are more
than just a dog walking service! We provide individual and personalized care for each of the pets under our trust. Our full list of services - including dog walking, in your home pet sitting, pet visits, puppy play-time, and dog boarding - is structured to provide pets with the highest quality of individual care and ensure pet owners that their pets are in capable hands while they're away.
When it comes to group dog walking, Unleashed Pet Services will never walk more than 5 dogs at any one time and we ensure that temperamentally as well as geographically suitable dogs are walked together.
Group dog walks are a fantastic way to socialise your dog and build their confidence and they gain greatly from this social aspect of their walks.
Absolutely. We are very flexible when it comes to booking. A text, email or phone call the day before will ensure a walk is booked or cancelled.
Yes. If your dog is very nervous around other dogs then we can provide solo walks. However, one of the biggest benefits of group dog walking is how much it can improve your dog’s socialisation. Therefore, if your dog is nervous but non aggressive, we can start off with solo walks and then slowly introduce him/ her to an appropriate group of friendly dogs, a little bit at a time. We are often amazed how quickly dogs can gain confidence and settle into a group dog walking with a little support from one of our lovely dog walkers.
Puppies usually have to go out every 2-3 hours. We will come to your house during the day and let the puppy out, feed and interact with the puppy at agreed times. We will also be able to introduce them to socialise with other dogs, once they have received their vaccinations.
No, as some animals have special requirements, we ask that pet parents continue to provide all of their pet’s supplies, including food.
We provide a free in-home consultation so you feel comfortable with us around your pets and so your pets have an opportunity to meet and interact with us also. Caring for animals is a two part process, observing and monitoring. When we meet your pets for the first time it gives us an opportunity to make notes about their appearance and demeanor. That way, while caring for your pets we will be able to observe quickly if they are behaving strangely, if something is out of place or if they need special attention.
That’s not a problem. We’re happy to cover anywhere between Timaru and Dunedin
