Time 4 A Walk
dog walking service
Welcome to Time 4 A Walk!
I am a friendly, experienced dog walker and I cover the Frampton Cotterell, Coalpit Heath, Winterbourne , Downend and Lyde Green areas. I have a calm nature and love spending time out with the dogs - I walk dogs in very small numbers (never more than 4). Often my own ‘partner in crime’ Whiz Whippet will join me on our group walks- he is a very happy young man who will see that your dog gets a good runaround!!
I have a DBS check, am first aid trained and fully insured and am very much looking forward to going on a canine body language course in November. I specialise in small group walks where I incorporate activities which ensure your pet gets mentally and physically exercised and will come home ready for a good sleep! I walk in various locations and, if safe and you have given permission, will walk your dog offlead. Whenever I walk the dogs I always towel them down if wet, top up water etc as required. Clients can see photos of our walks on my Facebook page
If you have any queries at all please get in touch with me either through the contact form below or call me on 07803 000669. I look forward to meeting you and your fur babies!
Dog walking and prices
The areas I cover are Frampton Cotterell, Coalpit Heath, Winterbourne, Downend and Lyde Green in South Gloucestershire.
From the moment I arrive to fetch your dog, I will treat it as one of my own and always take the utmost care. Your dog will have lots of fun with me - we explore lots of different locations and typical activities include scattering/hiding treats for your dog to find (always very well received!), doggy parkour and lots of time to sniff and explore. Our walks could be better described as adventures!
My walking service includes collection/drop off, wipe down and giving fresh water upon returning. I have a Facebook page - you can see photos or videos of our walks on there. Unlike some dog walkers, the absolute maximum number of dogs I take is four or three plus, if suitable, my own dog. This ensures I can keep a careful eye on the dogs at all times.
My walking times are as follows:
Early morning walk - pick up at 8.30, an hour walk, returned by 10.30
Mid morning walk - pick up at 10.30, an hour walk, returned by 12.30
Early afternoon walk - pick up at 12.30, an hour walk, returned by 2.30
Please be warned that your dog will come back wet and muddy if it is winter time (even sometimes summer!) however I am shortly obtaining a van and will have a hot shower available to clean your pet up. I obviously do my best to clean you dog up with towels etc!
1 hour - £12.00 for one dog / £22 for two dogs.
1 hour Monday to Friday inclusive - £10.00 for one dog / £20 for two dogs.
'Drop in' pet service
I offer a service where I can come to your home and look after your other pets. The cost for this is £8 - please contact me for further details.
The client agrees to provide full and honest information to Time 4 A Walk about their pets during the booking procedures. Behaviour which may negatively impact on myself (Ali Farbrother), my own dogs or those on walks. These include but are not limited to excessive barking or anti-social behaviour, aggression towards any humans or animals, straying and phobias.
The emergency contact will be asked to take over care for the pet(s) in the event of an emergency, if your pet displayed behaviour which meant they can no longer be cared for. These behaviours can be, but not limited to aggression or anti-social. Refunds will not be given under these circumstances. Please seek permission for an emergency contact to be nominated. The client agrees that if their pet attacks another animal or person, including any representative of Time 4 A Walk and this results in injury to that animal or person, they will be responsible for any expense incurred as a result. This includes payment of veterinary fees incurred as a result of injuries to another animal caused by their dog. The dog will be removed with immediate effect and placed with the emergency contact and no refund will be due.
Clients agree to an introductory meeting to allow myself (Ali Farbrother) to meet the pet(s) and discuss aspects of care. This meeting will take place in your home by arrangement and is provided free of charge.
I agree I will be handing over my pet(s) to Time 4 A Walk in good health. Any current illnesses or ailments will be disclosed and any medication for such ailments will be supplied and detailed on the Medication Permission form, overleaf. If a period of more than one month elapses between a booking confirmation and the commencement of service, the client must ensure that Time 4 A Walk are informed of any changes made to the pet’s health, routine or care.
All meetings and times are looked upon as appointments and must be followed. If you are unavoidably delayed by more than fifteen minutes, you must contact myself (Ali Farbrother) before the arranged time to arrange another suitable for any appointment. Please only call or text to arrange, if you use any other form of messaging this may not be received if I am not in a WiFi enabled area.

If a medical emergency arises for your pet(s), Time 4 A Walk will make every effort to contact the client and their emergency contact. Where time is of the essence, the client authorises Time 4 A Walk to seek medical services at the nearest veterinary practice. The client agrees to reimburse for all services rendered by a veterinarian in accordance with the owners wishes as stated and signed in the veterinary release form.
Unless otherwise agreed, your pet(s) will be exercised on a harness or collar and a soft lead. Where a client is happy that their dog is allowed to run free off the lead, they must be willing to sign an off lead disclaimer, under which the client agrees to accept responsibility for accident, injury or loss, caused by or to their dog. Dogs will not be walked in thunderstorms or extreme heat, instead they will have garden access for toileting.
In the event of serious accident or illness of myself (Ali Farbrother) the client accepts that alternative emergency cover may be arranged for their pet(s). This will be done with the involvement of the client’s emergency contact(s).
All pets must be fully up to date with their yearly vaccinations or titre tested with certificate of proof (kennel cough is notcompulsory but is advised), they must also be wormed and treated for fleas/ticks on a regular basis.

Any pet transported in a vehicle will be securely transported in the boot of my vehicle with a dog guard for safety or on the back seat with a seat belt converter attached to a harness or just the collar if no harness provided. No animal will be left unattended in a vehicle, unless attending a brief pick up or drop off for other customers and due care will be taken to ensure the pet is safe and comfortable with water if needed.
