About Stephen

I'm an experienced dog owner and now work full time as a dog walker and also offer home boarding with pick up and drop off service available. If you need any further deatils please do not hasitate to contact me.

Below are a few references from current clients.

Stephen is absolutely brilliant with our high maintenance spaniel. He is punctual and polite and very fond of the dogs that he walks. He is always happy to chat and offer a few words of advice on how to help with my dog. Anecdotally: One day he didn't know I was in the house when he returned and I heard him say "goodbye you gorgeous dog see you tomorrow!". Stephen is helpfully flexible and on occasion will change walk times to suit our needs. He comes highly recommended.

We've been very happy with Stephen. He's clearly knowledgeable about dogs, and understands Stanley's greyhound quirks. Stanley adores him and gets very excited whenever he sees Stephen. We can recommend Stephen as a diligent, responsible and friendly dog walker.

    Stephen was extremely helpful with all of my many questions! Very friendly and welcoming with a beautiful home and lovely dogs of his own. Leaving Jax overnight for the first time, we were very nervous as he is still an energetic puppy! Stephen was very accommodating would definitely recommend him!

    This was the second time we had left Verity with Stephen. This time for almost a fortnight. She's a lovable, friendly little cavalier popular with people and other dogs. Stephen always says she's a joy to have. Unfortunately this time she developed an eye problem and Stephen had to take her to the vet in all 4 visits. He kept us fully informed and all is well now. She has as usual appeared to have had a really good time and tonight is fed up with us without her pals, Thank you Stephen for all your care Denise Beard
