My border collie Dexter has been on two walks with Paula now and he’s loved it! He sits by the door waiting to go for a walk which he has never done! He came back tired from his walk which was very impressive considering he’s normally non stop! I wouldn’t trust anyone else but Paula to take my dog out, he will 100% be going on more walks with her. Thank you so much Paula! More...

Great training session today with Paula. Cooper and I really enjoyed it and will continue to practice what you have taught us. Hopefully continued practice will help my little tank get better on his lead xx More...

Charlie adores Paula and absolutely loves his training sessions with her. Paula is an excellent trainer and is very passionate about what she does. She offers lots of support and advice on any issues you may have with your dog and there is always an alternative if something isn’t working for you. The key to great training is teach the owners what to do and then practice, practice, practice. Paula makes the sessions mentally and physically challenging but always full of fun, Charlie is usually asleep in the car before we even get home. I can’t recommend these training sessions highly enough More...

Thought it was time for a review. I have been taking my rescue dog to paula diamond dog training for 8 weeks now and we love it. Paula is so kind, patient and genuinely cares about all of the dogs. We learn loads in our classes but you do need to go home and practice, practice, practice. This is the key to success with the dogs. Paula gives us the tools to ensure we have well behaved dogs. It is also great fun, the dogs are so excited to go and also enjoy learning in a stress free environment. If your dog struggles or if they can do the task she will adapt it so everyone is able to achieve something. Keep up the good work and thank you. Love Jason and Vicki x More...

We have a Frenchie who was unfortunately attacked which really knocked his confidence, Paula has worked with us doing one to one sessions for our boy to bring on his self esteem. Literally cannot thank her enough as he has grown in confidence and flourished with her expert help and enthusiasm! Now everyone else gets to see the beautiful happy little dog we once had! He’s gone back to being a happy playful less stressed dog on his walks and has even had a play on his lead today for the first time in over a year!! We cannot begin to thank and recommend her enough to anyone with any dog worries and troubles! An awesome lady with a passion for her job! Thank you immensely, Reggie will always be very thankful!!! ☺️ More...

I've gleaned a great deal from talking with Paula. Paula's understanding, compassion and genuine gift with our canine companions is refreshing and enlightening. I deeply admire Paula's drive and ambition to do the very best for every hound that comes under her care and training. Paula's desire to maintain high standards in canine training and care drives her forward . I have gained insight from Paula that has proved invaluable. My Jack Russell and I cannot thank Paula enough. You have a true gift, calling and heart of gold. My very best wishes, thanks and admiration. Craig More...

Never had an issue with Paula, a typical self employed business owner who is dedicated to the dogs she walks & loves as her own... would highly recommend for anyones fur babies... ✌ Happy to be open enough to discuss any issues which in my book is what helps build great relationships with her doggy parents More...

I dont think ive ever met a more passionate doggy person in my life. She is not just a dog walker - she has extensive experience in behaviour issues and training too. I can guarantee that if your using this service, your getting waaaay more than you pay for. The proof is in the pudding, look at the amount of wonderful reviews she has and take a look at the pictures she takes - I honestly didn't know it was possible for dogs to grin - but Paula manages to do just that. Highly recommended. More...

Great service. Paula looked after our dogs whilst away last week. Very professional with dogs needs central to her focus. Came and met them before house stay and took notes of their routine etc. Dogs settled really well with her and house looked after. Two happy doggies at home and relaxed owners whilst away. Thank you.

Paula is amazing with dogs treats them all as they are her own. She is more than a general dog walking service as she has a wealth of experience with all dogs but also has a great understanding of reactive dogs and always works to bring out the best in each and every dog and her aim is that they enjoy their time out to the max!. I do not hesitate to reccomend.

Paula is the dog whisperer! She just naturally knows whats best for your dog and builds an amazing rapport. She genuinely cares for all the dogs as if they were her own and becomes part of the family. Can’t thank you enough for helping me to train Poochi and for looking after the dogs cats and guinea pigs while we went on our hols. She’s the best of the best. Definitely recommend xx More...

Omg!! Paula is amazing!!!! My Hugo absolutely adores her! As soon as I met Paula, I felt instantly that I could trust her with my baby. Hugo thoroughly enjoys his walks and even I am excited when it's his day to go for his group walks! I absolutely recommend Paula 100000000000%. I am always eager to see the photos of his walk that day! I didn't think it was possible to find someone who loves him almost as much as I do (and trust me, that's a lot!!!). Thank you for all you do Paula!! xxx More...

Paula is an absolute natural with dogs. She has been coming to check on my puppy Teddy for last few weeks and he absolutely loves her. She has taught him lots of commands already and I have absolute peace of mind knowing she has checked on him. I would absolutely recommend - she is lovely and cares so much about the dogs she looks after. More...

Paula came recommended from a friend who knows how much our dogs mean to us. Paula has been an absolute blessing. Our dogs love her and are very excited when she comes to walk them every week. Paula has also stayed at our home with the dogs when we have been away. During this time she sent messages to update us and this meant we didn’t worry once. I would highly recommend Paula, she is amazing. I don’t know what we would do without her. More...

Well....it’s simple- Paula is amazing! My little cockapoo Bob, certainly is one of a kind! He’s received asbo’s from 2 other dog walkers/sitters, but Paula has worked wonders with him! She doesn’t just walk your dog, she spends time to get to know them, trains them, mentally stimulates them. I cannot recommend her highly enough. More...

Paula was recommended to me by a friend that knows how precious my beautiful dogs are to me and that I needed a reliable,trustworthy house sitter on a regular basis
I met Paula and grilled her for over two hours before I let her look after my girls.I have a nervous Romanian rescue dog and she arranged in her own time without pay to come see her again before she had total charge of them.
She’s amazing, kind,caring,knowledgeable, totally reliable and an all round professional person.
I have total confidence in her and cannot recommend her highly enough.

I met paula when i took my dog to dogs trust event in fleetwood, i have never felt so comfortable with a person i didnt even know. I trust her & believe everything she does is right for not only the pets but for us as owners too. She gave me so much confidence that the progress with my dog has achieved so many goals in such a short period of time. I couldn't have done it with her guidance. Thank you so much, you have made a very anxious person less anxious of being outside & made me achieve & believe more in my dog.
Thank you xxx

I was very quickly put at ease with Paula and her first class service! Paula came round twice a week, taking the dogs out whilst I was on a break for 2 weeks. This meant giving my mum a break from walking them. Paula sent photos and updates, which really made my day, as I knew they were not only in great hands, but were also having lots of fun. Thank you x More...

I met Paula through our volunteer work at Homeless Hounds. There is no one i would trust more with my baby. She gets to know your dog and tailors her walk to suit their needs (and yours if you are an over protective fur mum like me). She cares for your pooch like you do and having gone on a few walks with her to see what its all about i know she enjoys it as much as they do. Thanks Aunty P Love Gizmo xx More...

When Paula came to meet me and my black lab she was very friendly and genuinely had a real love of dogs. I asked a few other dog walkers to see which we preferred. Paula was definitely the one! Unfortunately she was ill soon after starting to walk Bart, but still called round to let him out for a wee and messaged me to let me know.
I have seen pics on the website and I can see when she arrives for a walk he is excited. On return he is rubbed down with a towel and calmer. Paula has messaged to let me know how he is getting on and I feel confident he is safe, well looked after and she would contact me with any issues. I would certainly recommend Diamond to anyone needing a dog walker.

I never trust anyone with my precious babies but after one visit Paula had won them over and watching them with her put my mind at ease and after going out for walks the last few days I know I made the right choice with Paula I can not thank you enough for looking after my babies and wearing them out on walks and you get to do it every week now haha they have been so relaxed thank you xx

Can't recommend Paula enough for having my little fur babies whilst I was on holiday. My babies have been fed, watered, loved and spoilt. I was so nervous about leaving them behind but as soon as Paula came round, she made me feel so comfortable and I knew straight away she was reliable. The daily updates as well have me massive peace of mind. 100% recommended. More...

Paula is an exceptional dog walker who always "goes the extra mile" (quite literally and figuratively). I've never known anyone put so much thought and planning in to the walks to ensure the dogs are Happy, stimulated and not over aroused; a clear sign she understands dog behaviour and welfare More...

I highly recommend Paula she is fantastic with my dogs I have a rescue and an older pampered boy. I have never let anyone take or look after my babies before but when Paula came round to meet them straight away they took to her when normally they are wary of people especially in there home with seeing how they reacted to her and how kind and caring she was with them I could tell she loves animals. Paula has been walking my dogs for 6 months now and they always come back tired and happy, when they hear her pulling up there so excited to see her and for me as a dog owner that's all I need to now.

Q&A

There are multiple reasons why I love my job:
1. There is nothing more fulfilling than a dog who has had issues with trust or fear, responding to you. Knowing that you are gaining the trust of a fearful dog is quite simply one of the best feelings in the world.
2. Spending time with animals makes me smile more than anything else.
3. Learning about the personalities of each pet that I meet. Every animal is individual and seeing their character's grow as they become more familiar with you warms my heart.
4. The outdoors! What could be better than working outside with lots of four legged friends!
5. One of my customers went away for a weekend with her daughter whilst I cared for her dogs. Her dogs are her absolute babies. On return, she told me that for the first time she had been able to fully relax and enjoy her time with her daughter knowing that her dogs were in safe hands.

I grew up having pets at home, a dog, budgies, fish, guinea pigs, hamsters, and also had riding lessons as a teenager. I have always been an animal lover however chose a career in Social Work from the age of 25 until very recently. I have owned my own horses and rescue cats for the last 15 years though I was very much missing having opportunity to spend time with dogs. I began volunteering as a dog walker for a charity named Homeless Hounds. The charity takes on stray, abandoned and abused dogs , and finds them their forever homes. My involvement with the charity increased to include fundraising and involvement with rehoming and adoptions as well as walking. The time that I spent with the dogs, building relationships with mistrusting dogs and helping them on their way to their forever homes helped me to see that this was me at my happiest. The rescue dogs inspired me to take a change of direction and although I am proud of my achievements over the last 11 years in Social Work, my passion for pets is where my heart truly lies.

My animals are my world, and I treat every pet in my care as I would my own.
I am honest, trustworthy, reliable and responsible. I am dedicated to providing an excellent service and I genuinely care about animals and their wellbeing.
