Hood Walks are one-one-one walks around your local neighbourhood with trained handlers suited to most dogs & puppies. We know from experience that the best, most consistent form of exercise is a walk is on leash for every dog.
A Hood Walk is all about your dog enjoying a walk with one-on-one dedicated handler time & getting their dose of daily exercise!
*Urban Walks are small group (no more than four dogs) walks for dogs that are well socialised with excellent recall. Based on experience we believe this is optimal group size for dogs to enjoy each other's company safely and for optimal handler engagement & exercise.
We choose the best urban and adventure parks, bush walks and beaches in Auckland for dogs to walk, run, explore and swim.
*limited spaces available for Urban Walks

If we need access to your home to collect and drop off we provide a secure lockbox* in a location at your property with a key (if required) for access. This means that Sticks & Bones minimise carrying keys and that you have access to an emergency spare key to your home if you ever need it!
We walk dogs regardless of the weather conditions! Unless it is dangerous to the dogs or ourselves. If your dog gets wet on a walk we will towel dry your dog once they’re home.
In hot weather we carry loads of fresh water for dogs to drink and to wet dogs down throughout walks. In warmer months we choose parks, bush and beaches with ample shade, and water to cool down.
Sticks & Bones have step by step emergency procedures in place for lost, injured and unwell pets. All team members are Pet First Aid certified, and our vehicles are equipped with canine & human First Aid kits.
Safety is our number one priority when we are caring for your dog, our vehicles are fitted out to keep them safe in the event of an accident, cool or warm while travelling.
Yes we do!

Sticks & Bones are genuine dog lovers! My dog went through a patch of bad recall, Amanda really worked hard on this and now he is so much better - Bob thinks Amanda is the bomb!
Rachael, Bobs owner.
I totally trust Amanda with my boy Zach who is loving his walks with Amanda. Sticks & Bones offers a wonderful service, and has been especially helpful while I have been unwell and unable to take Zach out myself.
Jo, Zachs' Owner
Amanda has been a huge part of my dog Otto's life for the last two years and I can't recommend Sticks & Bones highly enough. She is thoroughly professional and has a brilliant understanding of his needs.
Bret, Ottos' owner.
