I cannot recommend Anna & Heather highly enough. They've been walking our energetic Frenchie for over two years now and she is just delighted to see Heather when she arrives!
A truly trustworthy, great service that is also competitively priced.

Thank you Laura!

I wouldn’t trust anyone else with my dog; they are friendly, helpful, flexible and really experienced caring for animals. My dog comes home from his daily walk tired and happy. Thanks to Walking the Dogs!

The Best Dog Walkers you could wish for, they go above & beyond....my Dogs love them so much, both Anna & Heather are truly devoted to what they do, they offer an amazing personal service, the best in Berkshire and competitively priced too! Always positive, cheerful & genuinely care about your Dogs. You’d be barking mad to go anywhere else!

Anna and Heather are amazing, and I wouldn't trust anyone else with my animals. They are professional, trust worthy and treat Daisy my dog as if she was their own. I would be lost without them. Daisy loves her daily walks with them are her other four legged friends. 100% recommend.

First class service my dog has had holidays with Anna and Heather for years, I trust them with my dog (Joe) and wouldn’t change this at all. They love him like I do the care they take over him is outstanding. I would worry to much if he had to go some well else, I go as far as to say he wouldn’t be keen on going to someone new. Walking the dogs and sitting the cats hopefully are here the stay.
Trust and honesty go a long way.

Anna and Heather are absolutely adored by our 2 year old fox terrier. Always reliable and trustworthy and happy to offer advice when we've asked. Couldn't ask for better :)

Heather and Anna are fab. They are always willing to offer friendly advice to us first time dog owners. We would be lost without them!

Anna and Heather do a brilliant job with Becks and he adores them in return! There's never a worry when he's on holiday with them because we know he's looked after and loved as though he was at home!

Can't think of two better people to look after our little guy. Always there for my panicked phone call for advice and support.

You two are a godsend!

'Walking The Dogs' have walked my boys for over 6 months and they LOVE � going out with Anna-Marie. They race to the door when they hear her coming and obviously love her to bits. Couldn't recommend them more.. flexible, caring, warm and trustworthy.

5 Catherine Walters

We would recommend Anna & Heather to anyone without having to think about it. They have been regularly cat sitting for our babies for several years now. We always know we will come to a happy and well fed cat. It hasn't always been plain sailing either - they have had the odd emergency and poorly puss cats to deal with and we cannot thank them enough for what they have done.

Brilliant dog walking service. Anna and Heather handle our 2 hyper dogs amazingly and they are my dogs favourite people! Home made treats for them too always go down well. Would highly recommend

I would highly recommend Heather and Anna, my cats are my loves and I worry about them when I go away but not anymore! It was fantastic to come home to find the cats conservatory cleaner then when we left it!

Wonderful people who are genuinely fond of animals and take great pride in their work.

Review of Walking-the-Dogs by Roland Brooks

Quite simply I have no hesitation in recommending Heather and Anna.
Finding someone else to walk Meg was a huge deal for me, but I am a great believer in trusting my dog’s instincts, I needn’t have worried. Meg leaves cushions scattered in the run for the door when she hears Anna’s van. They have been 100% reliable, flexible and professional. And on top of that they do it all with a great sense of humour!

Excellent service, they have even managed to get my phantom cat to come out and say hello.

Review of Walking-the-Dogs by Sarah Javan
5 Sarah Javan

Anna and Heather provide a brilliant, personal and warm service. Our cat gets very distressed travelling in the car and going into a cattery so for her to be able to stay at home and be looked after by such lovely and reliable people gives us huge peace of mind. I couldnt recommend Sitting the Cats enough.

Review of Walking-the-Dogs by Peter Monk
5 Peter Monk

I have never had my pets looked after by this couple but when ever I have visited, quite often unannounced, I have found their attitude to their line of work to be exemplary. They are most loving and diligent to the requirements of looking after their own and other peoples dogs and cats. If I lived nearer and I owned either cat or dog and required for their comfort and security to be undertaken with professional care and compassion then I wouldn't hesitate to contact Sittingthecats/Walkingthedogs in the full knowledge they would be in safe caring hands.

Review of Walking-the-Dogs by Hayley Marie
5 Hayley Marie

This is the first time we’ve ever used a cat feeding service, usually relying on family or friends. I had no reason to be worried. Anna and Heather were so professional and I would highly recommend. Visiting us before our trip, to meet the cat and talk things through was a really nice touch and made me feel much more relaxed. The few updates and picture of our cat whilst we were away was also really nice. Thank you both �

The lovely ladies from Walking-the-dogs have been taking our very excitable, dreadfully licky but quite adorable dog for lunchtime walks since she was just a couple of months old. Harley totally loves her time with Anna or Heather and if we happen to spot them out and about in their van on the days they don’t come she can barely contain herself! The homemade dog treats go down a storm on walks and the fact that Anna and Heather create lovely presents of these for their charges at Christmas is a lovely touch! We also appreciate the advice and guidance that Anna and Heather willingly share given their knowledge and experience. We really feel that they look after the dogs they walk as if they are their own.

We have also used their Sitting-the-cats service for our very nervous cat when we go away as we know he would hate a cattery. The texts to let us know how he is doing really help us relax knowing all is well. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this very professional and reliable team.

Walking-the-Dogs Q&A

Walking-the-Dogs Q&A

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.

Why should our clients choose you?

We are a local independent company that is owned by two animal lovers.
We share the work between us,maintaining a professional service and continuing an ongoing commitment to provide a high level of pet care at all times.
We are trustworthy & hold a current police check,which shows that we both have a clean criminal record.
We are responsible by obtaining comprehensive insurance including public liability,animal care custody,third party liability,non negligent cover,employer’s liability,property damage & key cover ensuring that in the unlikely event of an emergency we are covered.
For home security our vehicles are non branded so we are not making it obvious that you are not at home. We also take your data protection seriously & adhere to the regulations keeping your personal information confidential. Paperwork is always kept separate from our house key safe & our property has a comprehensive alarm system.
So far all of our testimonials are 5 Stars & we are both Pet First Aid Trained.
We keep our dog walking groups small & we are both non smokers.
