About Hound Hikers

Hound Hikers is a well established and highly recommended pet service provider that has covered the Gateshead area since March 2015.

We can walk and look after dogs of all shapes and sizes, being experienced in handling a wide variety of dog breeds and temperaments.

If you are looking for a reliable, friendly and enthusiastic dog walker you need look no further, contact us today for a discussion about your requirements.

We offer a fully insured service that won't break the bank with group and solo walks available Monday - Friday (with occasional weekend walks also available for existing customers if required).

You can be sure that your dog is well looked after and having a great time out on a walk while you are at work or busy with other things.

We offer services in all weathers as long as it is safe to do so.

This is me, Nick, I run Hound Hikers and have enjoyed doing this job since 2015, having also previously worked for another local dog walking provider. 

I am an experienced and confident dog handler who enjoys being out and about in the great outdoors.


As long as I remember my waterproofs I don't even mind the wind and rain of North East England's winters :)

I enjoy meeting new people and new dogs to walk, so please don't hesitate to get in touch!

As you would expect I hold a full driving license, have a suitably safe van with separate dog crates and have all the relevant insurances to carry out my daily round safely and legally.

I take pride in keeping all the dogs in my charge safe and happy on their walks and am pleased to say that I have never had to use our comprehensive pet business insurance.
