Mel has walked our two rescue Lurcher's for 12 months and I really cannot thank her enough. Mel is reliable, practical and compassionate in her approach. One of my dog's can be reactive and she has been brilliant with him. Sadly, moving house means we will need to find another dog walker. I fear no one will be as reliable and professional as Mel. We will all miss you Mel, thank you so much. More...

Mel is the best dog walker ever! We can trust her 100% with our Alfie! She not only provides the best dog walking services but also goes the extra mile to meet her client needs eg. when she is fully booked she would pop over and let Alfie out; provides advice in vaccinations etc. She is a great person and she really cares about dogs. I would highly recommend her services! We absolutely love Mel! More...

Mel came to the rescue after a bad experience with another local dog walker. She offers a fantastic service and has a wealth of knowledge about dogs so I can always ask for tips.
It is worth saying my dog is a giant breed and she is completely confident around him, where other dog walkers have been very anxious.
She understands how important dogs are to their owners and I know my dog is being well looked after when he is with her. A fantastic service for a very reasonable price. So pleased we found her!

Q&As

The most things I enjoy about my job is working with different dogs all the time, I love the challenge. I like that I'm am able to be flexible for clients and do the up most to me their needs.

I had been a professional dog walker for nearly 2 years before starting my own business, it was the right time to start up on my own and has been the best decision I have made.

I am DBS checked, fully insured, and a canine first aider.

I am an experienced dog walker, and can deal with any situation that can arise. I have your dogs best interest at heart, and their safety is paramount, I always do a meet and greet with owner and dog. I like to make sure I provide the right service for both dog and owner, and I do all I can to cater their needs.

Services

We provide this service for dogs that are nervous, aggressive, or just like to run solo.

We provide this service for dogs that are nervous, aggressive, or just like to run solo.

Only four/six dogs are walked at one time with dog friendly dogs on or off lead.

If you would like your puppy to join in the fun on our group walks but they haven’t had their boosters, or are currently in the process of having them, done, this is a great service to start off with.

The puppy is left at home and we come round to feed them, top up or change their water, and let them out in the garden until they’re ready to join the pack.

A great alternative to kennels but only on a half day basis. Your dog will be with us for a 2 hour walk, with a break in between walks.

A great alternative if you don’t want to use kennels, we stay at your house when you go away.

We will walk your dog with our pack, or on its own, and make sure the dog will not be left for more than 4/5 hours a day.
We also provide a cleaning service whilst staying in your home and can offer references and testimonials.

Prices vary on time of stay.
