Dog Walking

Emsworth and the surrounding area is a fantastic coastal community to get out and about in and there are some wonderful walks to enjoy with our four legged friends! At Harbourside Hounds, we believe that mental stimulation for dogs is almost as important as their physical exercise whilst out on walks with us, which is why our walks are enriched with a number of games for those doggies that wish to take part, such as find and retrieve with dummies.

Pet Visits

Harbourside Hounds can provide visits to your home when you are away to care for your furry pets! This can include bedding or litter tray changes, feeding, toileting and clearing up after your pet as well as keeping your pet company with toys and games, not to mention lots of cuddles and attention!

Additional Services

We offer a variety of services from solo and group dog walking to puppy training, pet sitting.  We run special doggie days out, ideal for those salty sea dogs out there and include a home made doggy picnic. Additionally, we offer a selection of dog therapy intervention services-please click on the link to find out more!

 ‘Dogs emanate goodness that people respond to. One of the joys of walking your dog is that often people come up to you and immediately their hearts open. They are not interested in you, of course. They want to pat your dog.’ (Eckhart Tolle, ‘Guardians of Being’). 

Harbourside Hounds is a professional dog walking, pet care and dog therapy service based in the costal town of Emsworth, started by me, Helen! I believe that the animals in our lives are guardians of our very being and so deserve the best care that we can give to them in return.

At Harbourside Hounds, we just love to talk about anything dog and pet related, so whatever your pet’s needs are, we’re happy to help and figure out a plan! Please take a look around and if you need a pet service then please do get in touch.

My son Luke participated in the dog therapy sessions at his school with Helen and Henry a few years ago. Luke was quite scared of dogs and had anxiety issues relating to school. During the sessions, Luke became very fond of Henry’s gentle nature and loved the opportunity of doing tricks and training with him. Helen was very professional and a competant dog handler. Although Luke was still anxious of any dogs that were jumpy, he became less scared of dogs when we were out as a family on day trips etc and this was a direct result of attending the dog therapy sessions. We were so fond of Henry, that we decided to get a family pet and get a cocker spaniel ourselves! Luke is now a very confident boy around all dogs and has no anxieties at all. We can’t thank Helen and Henry enough! Nicky Tuffs & son Luke
