Gemma is fantastic with our dog Bobby. We got Bobby as a rescue and Gemma has been really helpful with our training and getting him socialised - most dog walkers wouldn't have given so much time and effort. Gemma is very flexible with arrangements and always fits Bobby in when we need him walking. More...

We recently asked Gemma to look after our 2 cats in the home during an extended break of nearly 3 weeks. She came in everyday to look after their every need and they were looking extremely healthy and happy on our return! And despite the challenges the cats provided (one likes to do protest poos behind the front door, the other likes to rip open food packets) she went over and above to clean up after them too. I felt 100% happy and confident leaving them in her care and will hopefully do so again on our next holiday ...as long as she's happy to do so that is! More...

Gemma walks our rescue dog twice a week, and Peanut loves her! She persevered in the beginning when we first got her, to get her used to new people coming in the house to take her out. We are very thankful her time and effort! � xx More...

Gemma is very kind, gentle and professional. It was very easy to contact her and arrange for her to look after our cat. She was there for us on several occasions on a very short notice and always with a smile. Our cat needs special medication and gets really stressed with new people. We found him happy and cosy after coming back home. Thank you Gemma :) More...

Gemma has been walking my two puppies for a few months now and she is absolutely brilliant my dogs love her and it’s so nice to know they are having a lovely time while I’m at work. I love the fact she texts me little updates and puts photos of my dogs on her page. I can’t recommend her highly enough! More...

Gemma is a most dependable and experienced dog walker and was particularly patient with our demands and worries over our pup whilst she was hot and bothered with a cone over her head!

Q&As

The excitement on a dogs face when you pick them up for a walk :)

Love of dogs and being outside in all weathers. The freedom of my own hours.

I have extensive experience of working with animals and I am careful to arrange my dogs in packs they are comfortable in, which unfortunately is not always the case with dog walking companies.

I believe in gentle/positive reinforcement methods of training and dealing with dog behaviour issues and try to keep up with training methods.

I am up to date with my doggy first aid training and insured.
