About me

Personal Statement

Alfie won many rossettes throughout his Agility and Flyball career and the greatest achievement was when he won first prize at an Agility competition back in 2009. They both enjoyed numerous Flyball races, winning many rosettes including first place's. Being part of a team was great fun. I enjoyed the sport of Flyball very much and, with some friends set up our own Club. We ensured that all dogs could be involved whatever their breed, age or speed, providing they enjoyed it and were healthy. We trained them and became very successful in our own right. I recently took early retirement from my job as a Deputy Manager working with people with Learning Disabilities and Mental Health conditions, for Hertfordshire County Council. Therefore, I have a wealth of life experience and excellent work ethics.

I am approachable, friendly and I have good interaction skills with people of all cultures and abilities. I enjoy challenges and use my skills to achieve results. I welcome your custom and look forward to forming a bond with you and your dog or dogs. My aim is to ensure he or she receives an excellent individual service. To achieve this, I will formulate an ‘agreed’ Plan of Care, and work to this plan, which can be reviewed at any time you, or I feel is necessary.

Although we love what we do, we do have to charge!

If you would like to book our dog walking services for your dog(s), please see price list below.

Your dog can be walked for half hour or more at any one time, you decide. A running total of the time will be kept and a communication book will be provided along with an agreed Personal Log Book. I will not walk your dog with other dogs, if you do not wish this to happen.

For bookings of 10 hours or more, you can choose how the time is to be divided up and it will be recorded in your dog's Personal Log Book.
