My name is Gaye. I am an experienced dog walker and I also offer a range of services to suit you – and your dog’s – needs. Each service can be tailored to your requirements and this would be fully discussed and agreed in advance. Regular or occasional walks offered. No more than four dogs per person are walked together at any time after being assessed as to their compatibility.

I have been in business and working with dogs for over 10 years. I’m passionate about our furry friends and love taking them on a good country walk at every opportunity.

Having owned dogs for many years, I understand that your dog is an important family member and so I strive to keep you updated and in-the know about how your dog’s day or week has been.

I am fully DBS-checked and insured. 

Examples of services include:

Dog/House Sitting in your home
I will stay in your home whilst you are on holiday and take care of your dog. He will be relaxed and happy in his familiar environment making for a stress free time for him I will put out bins, close and open curtains and generally take care of your property as per your instructions. Light cleaning offered as an extra service.

Dog Walking
Regular or occasional dog walking service. No more than four dogs per person walked together. Individual walks can also be arranged if preferred.

Vet Visits
Should you be unable to take your dog to the vet I can arrange to collect your dog and return him after the appointment with a full report of the visit. 

Drop in Visits
I can visit your home for your dog to have a comfort break, walk, play or company for half hour, hour or more. More than one visit per day if required.



Stop buying dogs that you've seen on tv !

Game of thrones filled rescue centers with huskys.
The John Lewis add filled rescue centers with boxers .
Now john wick is going to fill rescue centres with mallinois . And the dodgy breeders are getting prepared to line their pockets .

Do your research.

I get it, you see a highly trained dog on tv and you think 'wow, I want that'.

Newsflash, that dog wasn't born that way .

Hours and hours of training went into that dog. Hours and hours of exercise.Hours and hours of mental stimulation. These people live to train their dogs, and that's what they do for hours a day.

The breed itself gives you the drive to be able to achieve such fantastic things, but not without an incredible amount of work.

That same drive, left with nothing to satisfy it, will give you a dog that rips your kitchen to pieces. Climbs out of your garden. Is nervous and unstable. Barks, howls and chews. Digs through your living room floor, hangs off your children's sleeves ....

Mallinois are incredible dogs. But they're not for people who want to stroll on the beach once a day
. Without training, boundaries and rules they quickly develop phobias and problem behaviours. As do many other working breeds .

Decide what dog you want based on your lifestyle now and in the future. Breed is so important, as I've said before you cannot train out genetic traits.

Your dog is going to live for the next 15 odd years . You might move in that time, have children, split up with your partner. Don't choose a breed with traits you can't live with through all of that.
