Having grown up with labradors all of my life I have a real passion and appreciation for dogs. My current boy is a 10 year old black Labrador called, Dennis.
After recently leaving my job of 8 years working for Bristol university I decided it was time to pursue this affection full time! So, alongside my partner we relaunched dogforum.co.uk which is an established forum for any dog related matters and a dog friendly directory full of fantastic dog friendly things to do.
Alongside running my website I like to stretch my legs (and Dennis’s of course) and go walking. Dennis is part of the family so I appreciate that your dog is to. With this in mind, my services will be personal, relaxed and homely! No huge group walks.
Your dog will receive a full hours walk catered to your needs or requirements. Looking for friendly sociable dogs that are happy for others to join. Never more than four dogs at a time! Muddy paws will be wiped and fresh water will be provided. (£12 per hr / £19 per hr 2 x dogs from same household)Tell us about your dog
Whilst your puppy is busy growing it’s important that they have the correct balance of exercise.The time spent walking will depend on your puppies age and the rest of the time will be spent playing and stimulating their brains. Muddy paws will be wiped and fresh water will be provided. (£10 per hour)Tell us about your dog
If you’re looking for a bit extra then my day care provides 3 hours of time spent together. This could include two x 1hr 30 mins walks or two x 1hr walks and 1 hour of time spent playing or cuddling! This package can be catered to what you would like. Muddy paws will be wiped and fresh water will be provided. (£30 for 3hrs)Tell us about your dog
Josie has been walking Bea for months now and I can't fault her service. Friendly and efficient. I always enjoy seeing her regular updates and pictures of Bea having fun on her walks. Highly recommended.
Our boys have been out with Josie for 2 days now & they’ve had a great time! Thank you.
Josie is very friendly and professional dog carer who obviously loves dogs. At first Josie suggested for my dog walk with her lovely dog Dennis, then an afternoon visit. Josie also sent me photos and texts to let me know she was ok. My dog Juno now adores Josie and I feel happy and relaxed to leave her in Josie's care.
Josie has been a massive help when it comes to caring for our 13 year old Collie, Millie. Very friendly and always smiling, Millie is always so happy to see her.
I will try and make my services as personal as possible to your individual needs, you just need to ask. The only service I do not offer is holiday boarding.
I will never walk with more than four dogs. This includes my own dog Dennis who will likely join as long as everyone gets along!
Yes definitely, consultations are free and it’s essential that we both feel right for each other.
Yes I am insured
No, I’m afraid I will not walk bitches in season.
In general no. But this is something that can be arranged if it suited.
Theres no need for you to be home. Most clients are happy to provide a spare key.
Please contact me giving at least 24 hours notice, for no charges to apply.
iIn the unlikely event of an emergency, I will immediately call and notify you. If veterinary assistance is needed I will take your dog straight there.
This can discussed in the initial consultation, each dog will be considered separately but I reserve the right to refuse any dog.
No, we only offer group walks and they are not suitable for an aggressive dog to be on.
Enter your details in the form on the right and we'll arrange a free consultation with you and your dog to discuss working together
