About Kate

However much you love your dogs there'll always be times when you can't be there for them or are unable to give them the quality of walk or care you know they need. This is where we come in! We offer a very friendly and reliable dog walking, daycare and holiday care service for Gloucester and its surrounding areas.

When you go out to work or away overnight or on holiday, you may not be happy to leave them in kennels where they'll not be walked and may be worried at being surrounded by anxious barking dogs. Regular exercise and a stress-free environment is essential for the health and well-being of a happy dog and being stuck in a cold kennel with no walks can be very stressful for dogs (and their owners!) With us, your dog will have at least an hour long countryside walk each morning and afternoon (or less if that suits them). I'm at home all day and your dog will live with us as part of the family. A real home from home! Most dogs don't want to leave!

For dog walking, each walk is tailored to meet your dog’s specific needs; long walks, short walks, fast or slow walks, on or off lead, alone or with other dogs. We aim to fit in around your schedule and your dog's needs. Whatever your requirements you can be assured that we will treat and care for your pets as we do our own.

We have had dogs all our lives and currently have an extremely friendly, well socialised, happy chocolate labrador, Millie. This means that we have years of hands-on experience with taking care of puppies and dogs of all ages, shapes and sizes! We are fully insured. There are no children in the household.

If you have any questions at all or wish to arrange an introductory visit to ensure everyone (especially your dog) is happy prior to any walks or dog care, then please don't hesitate to get in touch.

    Albie loved his stay with Kate and Jason. We were kept up to date with pictures throughout his stay. Thank you for taking him into your home and giving him loads of cuddles!

    Thanks so much Haylee. Albie was such fun to look after and he had a great time. If you ever come this way again and need care for him, do bring him back. He's a lovely boy XX
