What do you love most about your job?
Being outdoors with the dogs & getting to know their individual personalities. Also having fun with them on the walks. We both love how happy the dogs are to see us when we pick them for their walk, they are all part of our extended family!
What inspired you to start your own business?
When we started the company back in 2008 we were one of 3 companies offering a dog walking service. We decided that there was a gap in the market & Heather gave up her job to become a full time pet carer. Then a few months later we were receiving enquiries to look after people’s cats & as I have grown up with a multi cat household it seemed a natural progression to offer this service along side dog walking.
