Professional & friendly services to delight your dog

About Us

We are a husband-and-wife team doing what we love, providing service to others by offering reliable and trustworthy care for your best friend - your four-legged canine member of the family. It is a delight to meet a variety of dogs and to gain their trust, to learn their characteristics and see each one enjoy themselves just as much as we enjoy being in the great outdoors.

We both grew up with dogs and as we started our own family unit, have had the pleasure of continuing to bless the family with more canine friends. Winston our black lab is sadly missed, and Kenzo our current delight, is a Springer Spaniel keeping us very much on our toes.

Our son and daughter play a valuable role in the house to complete the family ambience.

Our character, patience, love & joy are founded in Jesus Christ. We are active members of our local church, and we're privileged to work within God’s creation.

If you’d like to take some daily inspiration, try `Paws for thought`.

We are concerned for the wider global community, and commit to giving to others. We have two sponsored children in Haiti who are supported through the work of the local church, backed-up by Compassion UK. Our donations help the individual and their family. We also support ‘Sports friends’ who take the gospel to remote areas of the world, and help to turn neighbourhoods around from despair to hope, through setting up sports coaching and thereby getting alongside members of the community.

Wendy

I set up Wendy’s Dog Walking Services in October 2011, and have not looked back. Since having a family my priority has been to fit work around family life and the school timetable. To be able to combine family life, enjoyment of the outdoors, physical exercise, and my love of dogs has been a perfect match; even when the weather is cold and wet, and the fields thick with mud, I would still rather be outdoors walking dogs than inside!

My professional background pre-children is in Customer and Operational Services; the skills I developed there remain with me in our current venture.

In March 2017 I successfully completed a Dog First Aid course (certificate), an extremely enlightening and useful course which has equipped me with skills and knowledge to respond to emergency canine situations.

2017 has been a year of change, leaving the city lights behind me, and starting a new business which I hope will become a cornerstone service within Long Hanborough and the surrounding villages. My background is in Customer Service and Operational Management within the Educational and Financial sectors. No longer will I don the suit trousers and smart shirt - to be happily replaced instead with walking trousers, fleece and waterproof for a whole new lifestyle!

I do hope that my existing skills will still be required; rigour in controlling cost and efficiencies in process, but I'm excited to learn new skills to market and run our own business. I'm really looking forward to this new adventure!

In July 2017 I attended the same Dog First Aid course (certificate) that Wendy did earlier in the year, so that I am equally able to give the best care in a situation that we hope will be rare.
