Scoobydo was set up in 2015 when I decided to make my dream job a reality, already a dog owner and helping out neighbours with their dogs, I took the leap and set up my own company ...
I am pleased to be able to offer a flexible dog walking service that can be tailored specifically to my client’s needs. An initial meeting is always arranged to discuss your individual requirements and meet your dog. This meeting is free of charge. I can offer a walking service directly from your door, or I can pick your dog up in my fully insured van. I use a variety of different walks depending on where you live, including woodland, fields, lakes, and beaches all around Hedge End! If you would like your dog to be taken on a specific route, just let me know!

We are very happy with Carlos’s service. Our dog Moose loves seeing his van approaching the house and can’t wait to go out for his walks. We would not hesitate to recommend Carlos to anyone, a professional dog walking service. More...
Our puppy loves going for walks with Carlos, she is always well looked after and has so much fun with the other dogs. Carlos is extremely professional, helpful and flexible and provides an outstanding dog walking service. It is clear how much Carlos loves working with dogs and Phoenix was immediately at ease with him. I would highly recommend Scooby Doo dog walking! More...
I am amazed at the wonderful job Carlos has done with my dog Lottie. She was quite a nervous dog. But because of his patience with her she now goes on lovely long walks with other dogs and is good off lead too. Carlos has made a big difference to Lottie and we are very grateful. More...
Carlos is the local "dog whisperer". My dogs love going for walks with him! I would recommend Scooby Dooooo to anyone!
Carlos is excellent with Billy my 8 month old Cavapoo, he's very patient with him and makes his walks alot of fun. Billy gets really excited when Carlos come to pick him up twice a week for his walk. I get video clips of the walk and can see that Billy is safe and having a great walk. I'm really happy that we chose Scooby Doooo for Billy's walks. More...
Carlos is very professional and so caring in the way he looks after our precious friends. Nothing is too much trouble and he always provides the highest standard of service in looking after their needs. Carlos obviously loves the pets he looks after and I can thoroughly recommend him. More...
Carlos at scooby doo is amazing with dogs and he goes above and beyond for each and everyone of them!
My dog Bear had a very bad experience with a different "dog walker" which resulted in him being terrifed to even go out the door with said walker, petrified to go in the van/cage and coming home with injuries on several occasions. I had decided enough was enough and wanted to find a dog walker that would take better care of Bear, someone he would enjoy his walks with. After seeing many recommendations for Carlos at scooby doo I contacted him and he came over to do a home visit to meet Bear and us and tell us about his services and get all insurance and paperwork signed and put in place (something the other dog walker did not do) then because Bear had a previous bad experience he did the first few walks around our area so he could let Bear get used to him and gain trust and confidence. After that he introduced him to his van and the cages and Bear was still terrified however Carlos remained calm and patient and with gentle encouragement he managed to get Bear into the cage in his van and took him for a short drive to somewhere they could walk. Over time still with kindness, patience and encouragement he transformed Bear and he had gone from being petrified of vans and cages and leaving the house with a dog walker to eager and excited to go out with Carlos and content with getting in his van and cage. Even when Carlos got a new van and bigger cages and Bear got nervous again carlos went back to basics and introduced it all to Bear calmly and it didn't take long at all for Bear to be used to it again. He even gets up and waits by the door when he hears Carlos's van reversing as it has the beeping sound. Also a reassuring thing for me is that Carlos would send me regular videos of Bear on his walks and I could see he was happy with a smile on his face and tongue hanging out!
He would always give Bear a treat after a walk and even when Bear couldn't walk with him for a while after having elbow surgeries Carlos would stop by after/between his dog walks and check on him. He would walk Bear on short lead/long lead and off lead all depending on how Bears joints were the day before or that day, he would come and pick Bear up early on very hot days so he would definitely get walked or if that wasn't possible Carlos would let me know it he couldn't walk Bear as it was too hot and unsafe which I understood and really appreciated. He would also keep an eye on Bear during his walks and would stop the walk if he saw bear was struggling ie panting too much or limping. Everything he did was very much appreciated by myself. Unfortunately I have moved out of the area now and Carlos cannot walk Bear anymore which is saddening and when Bear had his last walk it was an emotional goodbye and I could see Bear meant a lot to Carlos and he was going to miss him.
Carlos really does care for all of the dogs he walks and caters for their individual needs personalising the services they need. He is so accommodating as well as patient, calm, kind, encouraging and gives a friendly and attentive service to all his dogs and their owners. I would recommend Carlos at Scooby doo to anyone who was in need of amazing dog walking services.
Thanks again for everything Carlos More...
After a bad experience with my previous dog walker I was searching for one that I could fully trust. Carlos’ qualifications and reputation attracted me to the company at first but on meeting him, the combination of his professionalism and obvious love and understanding of dogs won me over.
Since the first time I hired him to walk my mischievous beagle over a year ago, Carlos has been a very reliable dog walker, always going beyond what would be expected. From daily updates with photographs and video, to helping with monitoring illnesses and behaviour modification;; from walking her at very short notice to adapting to changes of our needs - Carlos is super flexible, helpful and nothing is too much trouble. I have recently come on maternity leave so need Carlos less for the next few months.. something I think my dog is sad about! But again, Carlos has made it clear if ever I need a break he will have Bali as and when I need . I have also left him with our key indefinitely... he’s so reliable and has said that if ever we can’t get home he will tend to Bali - a kind offer when we aren’t even using him regularly at the moment.
All in all, Carlos and Scooby Doooo provide an invaluable service that other walkers should model themselves on. Not to mention all at a competitive price! Very much recommended. More...
Carlos is a very professional and friendly dog walker.I would recommend him to my family and friends.
So lovely to know our fur baby has such a lovely time walking with Carlos. I really appreciate the care and attention he gives.
Brilliant service, my doggies love Carlos. Really reliable and I feel confident my dogs are being well looked after.
Carlos has been so helpful in every way. It's such a relief to me knowing PeeWee will get walks with Carlos and make friends with other dogs. Just wonderful. Also PeeWee is going to be looked after so well when I go away. More...

Scooby Dooooo is truly the best dog sitting and walking service I have used. I always get regular updates, with pictures and videos of my dog, showing he is happy, relaxed and being well-cared for. I can't recommend this service highly enough. More...
Carlos walks Bonnie when I'm at work and he is wonderful! Bonnie loves him, and he keeps me updated with her walks and how she is doing as she is still just a puppy and can be a bit of a handful at times, but nothing is too mich trouble for him. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone More...
Scooby is a more than solid 5, he is my dog’s best friend who is so dependable she works on Scooby’s clock as well as ours.
His loving play and intelligent interaction with her has been instrumental in improving her social skills as well as learning to understand which humans pass her “test passing” determination of who is and is not “safe”.
Scooby, Michael Silva and his family make their business more of a family essential than just a dog walk. We strongly recommend “Scooby “.
Carlos is great! Poppy is so excited every time he comes to collect her. A true dog lover.

Carlos walks my dog several days a week. I am very happy with him and feel my lovely dog is in good hands. He is very reliable, friendly, and flexible. My dog is rather active and has lots of energy, but when I come home on days where Carlos has taken her for a walk or boarded her, she's always content and well-exercised. If you´re looking for an enthusiastic and caring dog walker or boarder then look no further - I strongly recommend Carlos. More...
