Harris Hounds

Harris Hounds We are a husband and wife team who can provide all the attention and care your dog needs under one roof! We have a Grooming Salon at our home in Plymstock, we offer a Dog Walking Service and we stock a range of Natural Treats too.

We both love dogs, and have 2 of our own. After building an online retail business together the stresses and strains had taken their toll and we decided to move on to where our passions really lay, and so Harris Hounds was born. We provide regular dog walks in groups or individually, and also do home visits. We look after every dog as part of our pack, and our groups are all individually shaped to

As many of you know I spend an aweful lot of time planning each day to ensure that the best routes are taken, dogs are equally matched and time deadlines are met, this is fine until something goes wrongโ€ฆ

Today it was Amy feeling unwell after her first walk and needing to take the rest of the day off! ๐Ÿฅฒ๐Ÿค’

Luckily by having 2 walkers we were able to quickly adapt and ensure that we still managed to walk every dog that wanted a walk. (Even if we did finish the day in the dark!)

As always, Harris Hounds going the extra mile!

The Risks that come with Autumn. Safety Tips For Dog Owners

Autumn is a great season for dog walking as it tends not to be too hot or too cold. Both dogs and owners alike can enjoy the great outdoors on those sunny, fresh days in a comfortable temperature. The change of season is welcome for many but with it comes some hazards that all dog owners should know about.

Check out the below Blog that we released this time last year to learn more!

Epic fail on this mornings video!

We tried to do a time lapse to show the majority of the walk but in a quickened version, annoyingly it is too quick and you canโ€™t see it very well.

Can I give my dog frozen treats? ๐ŸงŠ

โ˜€๏ธ The weather has really warmed up over the last few days, and is set to stay that way for a while longer. This has meant a lot of mixed messages being shared over social media.

๐Ÿ˜žOne post that I see frequently shared with regards to ice cubes & frozen treats is well-meaning but a little misleading. The original poster unfortunately misinterpreted what was said by the vet and, when recounting the advice, missed a crucial element of the advice - that the advice was specific to dogs who are experiencing hyperthermia/heatstroke.

โœ… If your dog is not showing any signs of heat stroke then it is safe to give them frozen treats, ice cubes and doggy ice cream. You can add ice cubes to their water, let them play with ice cubes or freeze treats inside ice cubes for them.

โŒIf a dog is showing signs of heatstroke then it can be dangerous to give them frozen treats, ice cubes and icy cold water. Instead you should prioritise getting them to the vet for treatment and using safe methods of cooling on the way.

โ˜€๏ธSome signs of heatstroke are:
- excessive, vigorous panting
- agitation
- dark red, sticky/tacky gums

๐Ÿ’ฆSafe cooling methods:
- stand the dog in cool/tepid water
- wipe the dog's paws, abdomen, arm pits and neck with a wet cloth, refresh and repeat.
- use a fan/air con

โ€ผ๏ธPriority should always be to get the dog to the vet as a matter of urgency.
๐ŸŒกNo dogs have died from missing a walk but heatstroke can be fatal.

Prevention is the best option. Why not try some fun training or enrichment in the garden, play in a paddling pool, eat some tasty, frozen snacks or just chill out in front of the fan!

Stay safe out there โ˜€๏ธ๐ŸŒก

We are a husband and wife team who can provide all the attention and care your dog needs under one roof! We both love dogs, and have 2 of our own. After building an online retail business together the stresses and strains had taken their toll and we decided to move on to where our passions really lay, and so Harris Hounds was born.

We provide regular dog walks in groups or individually, and also do home visits. We look after every dog as part of our pack, and our groups are all individually shaped to suit their needs. Physical and mental stimulation along with social play keep dogs happy and healthy โ€“ and we know that keeping your furry friend happy and healthy is important to you. Whether your dog needs a long walk to explore leafy forests, daycare in the beautiful countryside or simply just some one to one attention, we are here to help.

Our Grooming Salon will be coming soon, where we will offer all services, from nail trimming to a full groom. The newly refurbished space will be calm, fresh and inviting for you and your furbaby. Grooming should be an enjoyable experience, not a stressful one, and we aim to provide a spa like environment for your dog to come along and be pampered. All our products are natural, organic, cruelty free and vegan, (they also smell amazing!), so you can be sure your dogs skin and fur is getting the best possible care.

We can of course combine our services, giving your dog a Spa day to remember. We can pick your dog up or you can drop them off in the morning. We will take them on a suitable walk, before bringing them back to the salon for some pampering. You can then pick them up or we can drop them home at a time that suits you.

Please share Nalaโ€™s story, no dog should ever be subjected to this situation because of human prejudice. As a few people know Nala recently was refused emergency medical treatment and nearly lost her life. She is still in a lot of physical and emotional distress. Her poor puppies; all eight of her babies died, extremely painful and preventable deaths. The only thing any of the out of hours vets offered was for the owner to โ€˜do the right thingโ€™ and put her to sleep and all of her unborn puppies were also to be put to sleep!!! Or that she could be left to suffer and die. Nalaโ€™s crime, the reason Nala was sentenced to death with her unborn babies: she was imported to the UK with cropped ears. She was not ordered to have cropped ears she was brought here for a better life, one where she was not condemned to a life without love warmth and compassion. Nala was however judged and told her life meant nothing. She was told her pain meant nothing. That her unborn puppies were not valued and they too were to suffer before they died. Nala looked to her owner knowing he would protect her, but she was turned away from three vets because of her ears. All telephone calls to vets were met with refusal because one of the vets had decided to claim that the only treatment available for Nala was euthanasia. This made other vets worry that Nala was subject to a destroy order! She is not. Nala has a right to her life, as did her puppies. I am asking you to share Nalaโ€™s story far and wide. I am going to be campaigning for a law to prevent this refusal to treat an animal. No dog should left in the level of pain she has been. In Nalaโ€™s name. For her puppies letโ€™s make it illegal to refuse treatment of a dog because of something they have no control over. Nala has her own group, and there is a petition on the page. In Nalaโ€™s name ๐Ÿ’–
