What We Do

No Ordinary Adventure

We bring a new approach to dog care. Specialising in off lead adventures in out of the way areas where dogs can run, play, chase and sniff to their hearts' delight. All this and first class, experienced care. If there’s something specific your pet needs get in touch and we’ll be happy to help. Anyone can walk your dog, but not every dog gets walked by us - this is No Ordinary Adventure.

Group Adventures

Our group walks bring exercise, play and socialising together in an adventure with other dogs. Specialists in off lead adventures, this service provides at least one hour of play and fun and brings the interaction with others that solo walks cannot replicate.


Al's Double Whopper  - Weekdays

Need care during the day? That's no problem for our customers. Two walks, lunch and plenty of chill out time on the couch. 9am to 2pm is enough for the most active of dogs.

Al's All Day Care

The there are times when you need to know that your pup is looked after all day long. Young Puppy or Elderly pooch who doesn't settle well when left alone.  Two group adventures, lunch and rest. This premium service is for the busy family, with pick up in the morning and drop off a super tired pup at 5pm.  Reserve my time and relax knowing your pet is in the best possible hands.

Dog in the Park

Home Boarding

Holiday? Late Night Party? Emergency?  We have you covered. We are happy (delighted even) to overnight board dogs who we know and walk with regularly. Boarding is in our own family home where your dog will be treated as part of the family. Two or three walks a day and overnight care will ensure that you can relax knowing that he or she is getting Gold Standard care.


Regardless of your pet’s breed, age or behaviour, each of my services can be tailored to fit their specific needs — no matter how unique. The socialisation service is one of our specialties and is often booked well in advance.


Weekend Walk

Don’t feel guilty about leaving your pet alone. Our Weekend Dog Walking service gives your pet personal care, even when you can’t be there. This is one of our most popular services and fills up fast.

Al's Big Adventure Days

Once a month we pack up our van with goodies and head to the beach or to the mountains with a small pack of dogs. Adventures don't get any better than this. Four to six hours of play, results in super tired dogs and very happy owners. Beach party sausage sizzles are not uncommon !!! Want to come along? Don't blame you!


Emergency Care

If the unexpected happens, one less thing to worry about is your dog's wellbeing. We will help, day care, overnight, pet taxi - we have your back.


My Exercise service allows you to make sure your pet is well taken care of, even when you’re not around. I offer this for all sizes and breeds. Reserve my time and relax knowing your pet is in the best possible hands.

What Our Customers Think


From the minute Al and Rhona  met our puppy, Hamish they have been fantastic. They come to collect him and he's so excited to go, we are sent photos and videos of their daily adventures. Hamish always comes home so chilled and it's great to see videos of him playing with other doggos in the pack. Highly recommend

William and Kirsty


Alan is brilliant. Bleu was so scared at first and he took his time. She now sees him and wags her tail happily and comes back shattered. You can see he genuinely loves dogs. Highly recommend



It's so reassuring to know Alan is walking our dog, Hamish. He's patient, kind and reliable. I've often bumped into people in the park who recognise the dog and mention how good Alan is with them all. We would 100% recommend (and we have). Thanks for everything Al.
