The go-to for your Lab.
Welcome to Holly and The Dogs, the first breed exclusive dog walker, offering dog walking and sitting services in Winchester, Hampshire - for Labradors!
Our aim is to focus on breed characteristics in fun, dynamic and enriching walks, ensuring we make the most out of every outing. Retrieving, swimming, scent work, and basic obedience with positive reinforcement training is practiced on every walk, whilst giving the dogs the chance to build and maintain friendships in a safe and controlled environment.
As someone with deep understanding of the breed's unique traits, energy levels, and exercise requirements, our walks are equipped to provide the necessary care and attention that your Labrador needs to stay happy and healthy.
Combining physical exercise with mental stimulation, it’s the perfect place for your Lab to be socialised with likeminded dogs in groups where each dogs’ play style and preferences are matched. With a choice between a weekday wander or adventure day, give your Labrador the walk they deserve.

Naomi & Asher
I reached out to Holly through Instagram when my labrador puppy (Asher) was around 5 months old. Holly was professional from the start and super friendly. I felt I could trust Holly with my dog 100%! Every adventure Asher goes on with Holly tires her out and from the photo and video updates on Instagram, it’s clear she has the best time and is her happiest when playing with the other dogs and seeing Holly. Asher is now 1 and a half and she LOVES going to see Holly. Holly mixes up her walks and takes the dogs on new adventures when possible. She incorporates training within her walks including recall, waiting, tricks, scent work and even learning to swim.
