I wish I was a puppy! Our puppy has the best days when she gets picked up by Claire or Christina from Man’s Best Friend. It is so reassuring to know she’s getting lots of exercise, playing with puppy friends and being cared for by such kind people. Ross was extremely helpful when I first called, and if we ever need to change our days or have an extra day added, he is very accommodating. Thank you for welcoming Maggie in to puppy club, we are so glad we found you! X More...

I can not tell you how great Ross, Claire and Tina are. We got our dog Edie in August and had no experience of dogs at all. Ross has been so helpful. From my first phone call he was so kind and helped me to see we can do it. Tina was fantastic on Edie’s puppy visits and Claire is amazing. She is so kind and keeps me constantly updated with fab pictures and messages. I have recommended them to a few friends and will continue to do so. A massive thanks to them all for everything. Edie’s care is one thing I don’t have to think about because I know it will be excellent!! Thanks More...

Millie was part of the puppy companion group for 4 months and has come on such a long way with Claire! She has been amazing with Millie and I trust her completely. Millie loves her and has been on lots of adventures. Claire provides updates throughout the day which I love seeing. She really cares about the dogs and that's all you can ask ❤ Thank you Claire! Also thank you Ross for providing a great service and for booking Millie in last minute etc when extra days are needed. More...

Would definitely recommend Mans Best Friend. I was very impressed with how Tina and Ross took the time to talk to us and get to know the dogs before their first walk. It’s been great to find someone who can handle my two boisterous staffys and all their funny little quirks! They always run to the door with excitement, as soon as they hear Tina pull and come back very tired doggos! More...

Ross who owns Mans Best Friend has been walking our dog Buster for 3 years and he’s the best walker around! Never once let us down and always willing to help with extra unexpected days if he can. Buster loves him and that says it all! More...

Many thanks Heidi

I can’t recommend Mans Best Friend highly enough. Ross ably assisted by Bosco (& Claire) have looked after our dog Jessie for around 2 yrs now together with our new addition Peggy. MBF are friendly, professional, diligent and always have our dogs well being as a priority! More...

Many thanks Dave

Ross has been with Lucy since her first few days with us. Not only has he helped with walks but settling her in with us too! He has been extremely flexible with our change in working patterns in the last month and responsive to all our questions. He even sends some great photos and videos too! Would highly recommend his services! More...

Our puppy Luna goes to the puppy companion with Claire. We have been more than happy with the service provided! Luna is socialising not only with other puppies but with Claire’s children too. They are also taken out to different places to visit other animals like horses. These are invaluable experiences for our little pup! Claire is also fantastic at keeping us updated throughout the day and giving advice when needed. Communication with Ross is also very efficient. Would highly recommend! More...


Spending time with my dogs and watching them grow up into well behaved dogs.

I had a bad experience with a dog walker so didn’t trust anyone else with my dog. I created the business and within months was fully booked as I know what service clients expect.
All my clients have become friends because I’m so much more than a dog walker

I will put your dogs welfare before taking your money. If I feel something isn’t right I will always say.
I give you feedback on every walk. I provide advice on training and any issues that may occur.
I hope I’m the best around, it’s not for me to say, it’s for you to tell me.


A walk with up to 4 other clients dogs. All dogs must be good with other dogs. These are fun exciting walks. Lots of photos and videos taken

Rather than visits that leave puppy on their own for long periods we collect puppy and take them off for the day. They meet farm animals, children, socialised with other puppies their own size. Very popular at present

Taken to Fewston and Swinsty reservoir for a long walk

We take your dog to the vets if you’re not able to

Coming soon once I complete my training

Coming soon once my wife completes her training

Should your meeting be running late etc and you know your dog needs to be let out or fed, we sort this for you

When you require a walker but not on a regular basis. You will not have to sign a contract. Walks are more expensive due to no contract

When you work full time, one walk per day isn’t enough so your dog gets to stay with us longer

If you work very long hours then your dog needs to spend all day with us
