Bewbush, West Sussex, West Sussex
I'm Denise, an active, 29 year old mother of one with a passion for pets! I decided to start Trail Waggers after my own pet, Ted the Chihuaha, joined our family. I realised just how much I loved spending time out and about exploring with Ted and my son, Charlie.
I looked after the pets of friends and family whilst they were on holiday or at work and I often felt that I had myself a doggy hotel! My family and I loved our furry guests and the long walks - that's when I had the vision to start Trail Waggers.
I offer a safe and loving environment for all pets in my care, whether for an hour long walk during the day or even a two week stay for their own little holiday whilst you're away.

Trail Waggers Q&A
What do you love most about your job?
I love spending time with all of our furry friends! Getting to know the animals and their personalities and watching them form friendships with each other and myself is incredibly rewarding, plus the fact this job keeps me active and exploring the great outdoors.
What inspired you to start your own business?
As I live close by to Gatwick Airport, a lot of my friends and family would rely on my to look after their loved ones whilst they went away on holiday. At one point, I had multiple dogs, including my own, staying with me and whilst I was out walking them one day I thought to myself "I'd love to do this for a living". So I got home, did some research, spoke to a lot of friends & family and decided to go for it. I quit my role as Store Manager for a large retail store in Brighton and have committed myself to Trail Waggers, the best decision I ever made!
Why should our clients choose you?
I'm a genuine animal lover, I offer a reliable and cost effective service and I am also happy to cater for individual animal needs, something some dog walkers will not do (i.e. walking dogs that must be walked alone, dogs who have behavioral issues etc.) If you are looking for a reliable professional to look after your furry friend whilst you are on holiday I am a fully insured and DBS checked, so I hope you can feel comfortable leaving your hairy family member with me. I offer a warm, loving, home from home environment.
