Sticks & Bones is Aucklands' premium dog walking service.

Our goal is to provide the best quality dog walking service based on great relationships, experience & knowledge. We believe that active dogs behave better and the act of walking stimulates a dog's physical and mental needs, which makes for a happy dog!

Our focus on service & safety and all of our services include:
• Access to our personalised client app
• Real-time updates from your walkers
• Secure key access to your home
• Trained handlers & sitters
• Police checked team members

Hood Walks

All dogs benefit from daily exercise, and the best exercise for a dog is a walk! Our one-on-one Hood Walk service suits every dog so they can get their daily dose of exercise so that owners don't have to worry about juggling another task in a busy day.

Our Hood Walk service gives your dog dedicated one-on-one attention of their handler. It makes for an excellent opportunity for skill practice, exploration and mental exercise, all in a controlled, safe manner.

Urban Adventure Walks

Whether it’s tearing through the bush or driving in to the surf dogs love new adventures. Our small group Urban Adventure Walks are suited to well socialised dogs with reliable recall and include, pick up, drop off, post walk towel down & treats!

Urban Adventure Walks
are small group (groups of no more than 4 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.

Dog Sitting

Our sitters look after your pets in your home environment & deliver the best care to your pets. In home pet sitting* is an easy solution for owners & we believe the benefits of pets remaining in their home environment are endless.

*In home sitting service is available to enrolled clients only.

Meet & Greet

If you are evaluating what the best type of care service is best suited to your dog you can choose to book a Meet & Greet with us.

We come and meet you and your dog at home, in a familiar, chilled out environment and have a chat about what your dogs exercise needs are. It’s completely free and the perfect opportunity for you to check us out & ask us about our service.

Assessment Walks

Sticks & Bones complete a minimum of two Assessment Walks with every dog, to evaluate each dogs behavioural responses to other dogs, people and the environment, and to assess each dogs' individual character temperament & emotional needs.

Our processes have been developed to professionally determine whether or not our walk services are safe and suitable for your pet’s individual needs.

Book Dog Walks

Once we’ve completed our assessment walks with your dog, we will introduce them to a suitable handler & schedule your dogs walks via our app.

All clients may book regular or casual services with us once our enrolment, on-boarding & assessment procedures have been completed & we have accepted your dog for walk services.

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.

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

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!
