About Richard

As pet and dog lovers, we know just how hard it can be to leave our furry friends - whether it's during the working day or for a holiday. We offer a range of services from dog walking, pet sitting, pet taxi and home visits. We offer temporary or long term solutions. We have our own dogs which are very sociable and love other people and dogs.

We are both Canine First Aid Trained and have attended dog law seminars so understand the law and how it relates to your dogs. Richard will be walking your beloved pet and has been DBS checked (Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) checks are now called Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks). He is also fully insured, including key cover insurance.

We cover the following areas: Harlow, Sawbridgeworth, Waltham Cross, Waltham Abbey, Epping and surrounding areas.

My name is Richard Wagner and I have had dogs all my life, specialising in Border Collies but I have also owned a Dachshund and several Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. I started competing in Obedience when I was 16 and then started competing in Agility. I represented Great Britain at the World Agility Championships in Portugal with a Cavalier. I am experienced at dealing with a variety of breeds and situations. I am currently owned by Shadow a Border Collie x GSD, Sonic and Pippa, both Cavalier King Charles Spaniels.

When your pet stays with us they join our family and are treated like one of our own animals. Some dogs can be traumatised by kennels and suffer separation anxiety and it is difficult for kennels to provide the 'one on one' love, care and attention that can be provided by us. As experienced dog owners we can maintain your feeding and exercise regime, reinforce any training points you are working on with your dog, as well as giving them care, companionship, love and affection.

We can look after your dog or small pet in our home as if it was one of our own. We could not take cats into our home but can visit them at your own home.
