Welcome to Hound and About Dog Walking
We provide quality, stimulating exercise for your dogs when you just don't have the time.
A bored, lonely dog is a destructive and unhappy dog and we don't want that for our best friends. With Hound and About your dog gets to socialise, play and explore new places, exactly what they were born to do!
Walks are a minimum of two hours. Typically we walk in groups of 7-10 so they have the attention and care they deserve.
Our pick up areas are Lower and Upper Hutt with pick up and drop off included in the price.
My name is Maisie and ever since I was young I've had a huge amount of love and compassion for all animals, especially dogs.
After trying a few (ok a lot) of different career options, I could not find anything that gave me the satisfaction and happiness that I craved. All I wanted was to see my own dog, Jesse, happy and find a way I could be with him every day. When I finally had the confidence to start my own business, I instantly knew it was everything I had been searching for. It gives me so much pleasure to see the dogs having fun, socialising and exploring every day.
My whole life revolves around dogs and I wouldn't want it any other way. If you are looking for someone who gives your best friend the same love and care that you do, then Hound and About is the experience for you.
The business has grown so much over the last 4 years and I can't wait to see what it becomes!

Maisie is so lovely and I can tell she really cares about all of the dogs the she takes out on adventures.
Shade is becoming so much better at listening when he is around other dogs and I think that’s because of his walks with Maisie. I love seeing the photos of all the dogs playing together and clearly having the best time!
I would 100% recommend Hound and About to anyone who has a dog that needs walking.
Our pup Milly loves going on walks with Maisie and co! She is always tired after her walks and super cuddly and I love seeing the photos of what she's got up to that day! Couldn't recommend enough
Midas sits at the window waiting when I tell him its walkies with Maisie.His tail cant wag fast enough when she arrives.This is exactly what I have been wanting and I am so happy that there is room for him.I think it wont be too long now before there will be no more spaces left for any new doggies to join the adventures:)
Love the videos and pics at the end of every walk.
