About Alastair

Most of my childhood was spent with a succession of Pembroke Corgis; we also had Yorkshire and West Highland Terriers as well as an Elkhound. Having lived in Forest Row for over 10 years (and growing up in Oxted as a child) working with dogs is something I know and love best. Combining that love together with my knowledge and fascination with Ashdown Forest, setting up a Dog Walking as well as Pet Sitting business seemed the natural next step. I’ve walked the Forest weekly ever since we moved here in 2002, treasuring this incredible natural resource we have close by whilst respecting the need to be responsible when in charge of a group of dogs.

Dogs are social and noticeably happier when they’re walking as a group which is how we prefer to work although we do offer individual walks if required. Dogs are by nature pack animals which is how their ancestors grew and developed in the wild. We keep the pack in hand (on occasion on the lead) and under control especially around horses, small children, other walkers whilst knowing where grazing sections are to avoid any temptations to chase sheep or cattle. We do not walk close to roads as a practice.

The name ‘The Woof Pack’ is a reflection of how we work with dogs; working with their natural instincts as well as their domestic roots. Our walks are fun with plenty of interaction and chat whilst maintaining the control over the pack.

The Woof Pack offers day care, walking (both pack and solo) as well as home sits. Sadly we're not able to offer Home Boarding for your pets.

    My dog after a day with Alastair is content and hungry. Always a good sign that his day has been fun. Peace of mind for me!
