At Stortford Walkies we understand that your furry friends are an important part of your family.
We are a family owned and run business with many years experience in animal care. We have built up a strong client base by being reliable, trustworthy, discreet, and flexible but most importantly by caring for your animals as much as you do.
An important part of keeping dogs healthy is socialising them and giving them sufficient exercise. With so many demands on our lives it can be difficult to find the time to do this regularly. That’s where Stortford Walkies can help. We can walk your dog when you need to be away from home for the day and are happy to do this is as a ‘one off’ or on a regular basis.
Dogs are pack animals and enjoy the company of other dogs. Whenever possible we will walk your dog with others in a small group (East Herts Council limits this to a maximum of 4 dogs). If you prefer that we walk your dog alone that’s fine too, where bookings allow. As the safety of your dog and of others is paramount there are some behaviours and instances where we would ask that your dog is walked solo* to allow us to maintain control.
We want your dog to enjoy being with us but we also want your dog to be fun to be around. We will work with you and your dog to maintain the training you have given them. We believe in praising good behaviour and working with their natural instincts to prevent bad behaviour.
When we visit your pet in your home, we understand that allowing us into your house in your absence, requires a large amount of trust. Our interest is solely in caring for your pet. We will clean up any ‘accidents’ and ensure that your animal has adequate food, water, etc. We remove post from the doorway and if you are away from home we can turn lights on and off, open curtains etc. For your peace of mind we are DBS checked.
We use discreet vehicles so we don't advertise your absence from home. Our car signs are on magnets, so if you'd prefer an unmarked car for your visit that's easy to do....just let us know.
Highly recommend Angela, helped me on 2 occasions urgently when I was going to visit my dad in France. Efficient, flexible and brilliant with my French bulldog and Samoyed. Will definitely book again x
Amazing, reliable service. Have used Stortford walkies for 3 years and always am 100% happy!
Have used Stortford walkies since I first had Winston and Maggie as a puppys and they started with puppy visits.
Always feel 100% happy with such a reliable service and I know the dogs are having a great time from all the great pics you see.!
Great dog walking service. Would have kept on using but had to move out of Stortford. Highly recommend :)
Angela often looks after our two cats when we go away, and we always feel they are well looked after and in safe hands - a very reliable service! :)
Anyone who is willing to walk my gormless Rottie not only deserves 5 stars on FB but also a fast tracked sainthood from the pope! Excellent dog walking service, and it is lovely to see the pics and videos of your dog having fun with his pals. I would not hesitate to recommend Angela. More...

Fjord came back 'en forme' after lots of adventurous walks, just what a SAR dog requires to keep the boredom abay and surpressing his sock swallowing antics! Thanks Angela for listening to his needs! More...

Very happy with Angela and Alan, nothing too much trouble and love seeing the photo's of Jess on her walk. Made a little dog's life very happy after the traumatic process of losing her buddy and moving home.
Cannot recommend Angela high enough!! My dog absolutely loves her and so do we! She's been amazing with Poppy and going over and above our expectations particularly after poppy hurt herself and just coming in to fuss over her is just a huge weight off our mind
Reliable always and I feel angela knows cola as well as me so she is in safe hands! Cola gets to go to big fields.Love getting photos and videos of the walks. Angela is also helping my dog become better with other dogs by group walking. More...
We've used Stortford Walkies for 8 months now with our very lively Doberman, she seems to absolutely love Angela and gets excited at the sound of her voice. Stortford Walkies are always more than willing to help you out when you need it, sometimes at extremely short notice. This comes in very handy as I work shifts which get changed at very short notice. On the other hand they are very understanding when I need to cancel at short notice.On occassion we've been home when Poppy has been collected and dropped off, she is always collected on time and often gets more of a walk than advertised. We always have peace of mind that Poppy will be looked after, Stortford Walkies are dog people and understand what individual dogs require. They don't walk a dozen dogs all off the lead running around out of control, the groups are small and well suited.Poppy has even been taught new tricks when she had a poorly foot and couldn't walk as far, Stortford Walkies thought of ways to give her the stimulation that an intelligent dog like her needs. To summarise Stortford Walkies are; 1) Flexible 2) Caring 3) Responsible 4) Understanding 5) Professional 6) Punctual 7) Value for money 8) Helpful 9) Dog lovers and 10) un-beatable 10 out of 10 from us and Poppy More...

Fantastic service. We use Stortford Walkies lots and they're great - friendly, reliable and they keep up the behaviour training. First class service.
My dogs occasionally stay over for the day when I am in London. They drag me inside when I arrive and I have to drag them out at the end of the day! They love their mini-breaks at Stortford Walkies! More...

My dogs occasionally stay over for the day, when I'm in London. They can't wait to get in, in the morning, and I can't get them back out at the end of the day! They do love their mini-breaks at Stortford Walkies! More...
I have used this company on several occasions to look after my dogs and each time have found them to be very helpful, very reliable, and most importantly, the dogs are very happy too!
