About RYAN

Hi I'm Ryan. I have been a massive Animal lover since I was a young lad. Ever since I left School I have always wanted to work with Animals and am delighted to have been doing the job I love for so many years.

I have grown up and owned Dogs all my life and have worked in 2 Rescue Centres in my time. I was at The Mayhew Animal Home for 4 years and I also worked at Battersea Dogs and Cats Home for over 9 years. I was up until recently the Manager of the Day Care Centre where I worked for 1 year. I have gained a lot of knowledge and have over 16 years experience. I have also gained a qualification in Animal Care ( NVQ 2 ) which I acquired in 2007.

For many years I worked for somebody else and decided that now is the time to go and do it alone and carry on doing the thing I love more than anything in the world, and that's being able to give Dogs in my care all the time, love, attention and dedication and of course spoiling them rotten ( unless strict diets are in order ). I enjoy going on long walks with the Dogs and having lots of fun times with the happy hounds.

I am looking for walks, house sits, visits, daycare and Boarding. So if you need someone to look after your precious pooch while your away for a weekend or a holiday, or if you would just like someone to take them out while your busy at work then I am the man for you. Ideally I'm looking for local work but would be willing to travel should you feel I'm the right match.

I can promise you that your Dog will enjoy every moment with me just as much as I will with them.

Thanks for reading and I hope to hear from you soon.

    I have used day care for my puppy many times but Ryan is by far the most professional, skilled and knowledgeable when it comes to dogs. Ryan took time to set up meeting at the park where he got to know Rex and gathered information about him. I have also received amazing photos and video from my pup's stay with Ryan. Rex obviously had time of his life as he didn't want to go home and was really unhappy that I'm taking him away from his new dog friends :-) I genuinely can't recommend Ryan enough.

    If you are looking for complete piece of mind whilst your dog is away, Ryan is the man for the job. His first instinct when we met him was to offer Kylo water and a toy to make her feel comfortable, this really impressed us. He took thorough notes and looked to keep Kylos routine settled, created a whatsapp group for us to keep updated and see pics and she always looked like she was having a great time. We really cannot reccomend Ryan highly enough.

    Ryan has been wonderful with daisy: Has transformed our doggy to be off the lead and socialise with dogs. Understands each individual dog and there needs alongside ensuring we are comfortable with each decision. We get photos and text messages each walk for updates which is lovely to see why at work. Daisy loves Ryan and happy to go out any day with him. Ryan has made a huge change and impact within our and Daisy's lives. daisy now has lots of friends for play dates! Would recommend to everyone!
