Our Dog Walking Services
She Walks is a professional Melbourne dog walker - our services include small group dog walks, private solo dog walks as well as home visits for dogs who may be sick or just too elderly to walk.
Exercise is vital for your dog’s physical and mental wellbeing (much the same as us humans!), some of the key benefits associated with regular dog walking include:
Mental stimulation – walking introduces our dogs to fresh surroundings and provides much needed exposure to all kinds of new sights, sounds and smells. The stimulation of regular dog walking aids in the promotion of relaxation, lower stress levels, calmer emotions and helps to prevent boredom and destructive behaviour.
Socialisation – dog walking creates a safe environment which promotes positive interactivity with different places and environments, other friendly dogs and humans. Socialisation is vital for a dog’s development and overall health and wellbeing.
Healthy weight management – according to national surveys, over 40 per cent of dogs in Australia are either overweight or obese. Unfortunately, overweight or obese dogs are susceptible to a number of medical complications. Regular dog walking is a great way to safeguard your dog’s health and happiness.

Our Dog Walking Options
Group Dog Walking - She Walks With FriendsShe Walks provides regular social walks across Melbourne for groups of up to four dogs.
Dogs personalities are matched prior to our walks, this ensures everyone is safe and has fun. We want to be sure the dogs can cope well with each other, rather than avoiding the overstimulation of big group dog walks.
Private Dog Walking - Just Me and Your DogJust us with your pooch. Not all dogs wish to be with other dogs and may need one-on-one attention due to age, disability, or they may simply want to have our full attention. We will also practice training and play games as part of our walk.
This is a perfect time for us to connect, and engage with your dog. We compliment the dog training you may be doing at home with our gentle frame of mind. Not all dogs have the stamina nor the care for jumps, chase and play. They might just like to wee and wander while taking in the beautiful scenery and fresh air. She Walks can assess your dog and work up to a group walk, should you feel you would like your dog to have company and an adventure with one of our group walks, "She Walks with Friends".

"Nicola has been walking our three & a half year old StaffyX dog, Daisy, for the past two years whilst I was at work. I am very grateful for her reliability over this time. She has given Daisy lots of energetic, fun walks and a real bond has developed between them. I have seen Nicola’s dog walking business grow right from the very beginning and cannot help but be impressed with her professionalism and enthusiasm."
"I engaged “She Walks” over a year ago, and am so happy that I did. Nicola is truly my “Pets PA”, my family live interstate and so I rely heavily on having some help to care for Molly, after having some terrible experiences with boarding kennels it was important that I had someone I can trust with Molly. Nicola and the she walks team, have never let me down, she is flexible, reliable always provides me with updates and pictures and most importantly Molly loves her and I never have to worry about her being in the “she walks” teams care, because I know Molly is treated as part of family. Nicola walks Molly weekly, grooms her and minds her when I travel and even assists in any little training issues we have, and has definitely made my rescue greyhounds transition to pet life easier. I have no hesitation in recommending her services."
"Nicola is the most amazing pets P.A. one could possibly hope for. Like all dog owners, we love ours dearly and are so happy that Rusty can spend time with the team at SheWalks! Besides daily walks, Nicola goes over and above when it comes to Rusty’s care, providing many helpful tips and tricks for making sure that we can provide the best care we possibly can for our gorgeous boy. The provision of updates while Rusty is out with Nicola and photos of him at play with his little ‘play group’ is an added bonus. We are 100% happy with the service and care that Nicola provides. Thank you Nicola!!!"
"Our whole family loves Nicola but most especially our dog Maggie. Nicola shows Maggie lots of attention and affection whilst maintaining discipline and control. Nicola takes the time to get to know her canine charges and pays attention to their individual personalities and needs. We trust Nicola to care for Maggie as much as we do."
"We cannot recommend Nicola's services enough! Romeo has never looked better with his traditional Lagotto breed cut and we are so pleased to have found her after several disappointing cuts from other groomers. My husband and I then went on a babymoon and decided to use Nicola's dog sitting services since Romeo was already familiar with her. She went above and beyond to make sure he was happy and comfortable, treating him as one of her own. She updated us regularly and we had no doubt that he was well cared for and having a great time! We are very grateful to have Nicola in our lives as Romeo adores her and her 3 fur babies. If you are after a highly communicative and experienced groomer, dog sitter & walker look no further. Thank you Nicola!"
"Hello this is Max and here is my story, I was saved from a rescue centre and I had a couple of issues. Walking or 'snorking' as I call it is a cross between a walk and sniffing. This was everyday activity was tricky, that was, until my guardians found 'She Walks'. I can't wait for a Wednesday and I do my excited spin whenever I see you. To trust and to love are hard for me, but I'm in love with you guys and trust you to take me on just the right walk.My guardians say you are amazing and they would recommend you. Although I want to keep you a secret!!!Woof woof, Love Max.
(Huge thank you from grateful customers. Fran and Ross)."
"Rocky and Nicola at She Walks have been mates now for coming up to a year. You wont find someone better to help discipline, clean up, wear out and amuse your pooch. Not only does She Walk, she really cares."
"The moment Nicola met Alfie, he knew she was the one! I cannot recommend Nicola highly enough. She (Nicola) just loves dogs and has been wonderful."
"Not only is Nicola a great communicator, it showed that my little dog Leo (The Lion) was having the time of his life. With She Walks, Nicola ensures that the happiness, comfort and safety of the dogs are central. I have found her to be trustworthy and very professional. Highly recommended!"
"Nicola of She Walks provides a terrific service. She clearly loves dogs and is wonderful with our two large dogs. She is highly reliable, flexible and unfailingly cheerful. I recommend her unreservedly. "
"Nicola has been walking our dog Daisy, a staffy X, once a week for approx. 9 months now. Daisy adores her and we are very happy we found her. She gives Daisy a very energetic walk and a lot of love."
"I can't recommend Nicola and She Walks more highly. Our dog was sick when we were away and her care was outstanding. "
