About Richard

I am an experienced dog walker and owner of 15 years. I have a two year-old resident Scottie Dog who loves meeting all the dogs that come to stay and ride with us to Wimbledon and Barnes Commons every day for a minimum 75-minute walk. These walks allow the dogs to run, forage and chase squirrels without the worry of traffic. I also live opposite a park which is convenient for short walks and ball games with smaller dogs who don't want a five-mile hike. The river Thames is 300 metres from my home and so river walks between Putney and Barnes Bridges are easily accessible. I also care for elderly dogs where driving to the park and allowing a 30-minute off lead wander is more appropriate due to aging joints. I am fully insured for daycare and overnight stays and for conveying my maximum of four dogs to the commons and local parks as opppripriate. Personally, I am a fifty-five year-old single man who has spent 30 years working in marketing. Walking and looking after dogs is a whole lot more fulfilling and satifying than reading endless social media performance statistics and constructing pan-European marketing plans, trust me!

    Richard looked after my monster pup Mercy during the day while I was away for a week. Being a new owner of a big, eye-catching rescue dog I was quite worried about leaving her, but Richard was reassuring and patient with my concerns and questions. Keeping to Mercy's routine was really importamen to me.. I needed not have worried.. Mercy loved Richard and he clearly understands dogs. The videos he sent showed Mercy having a great time and my household reported her very happy on return every eve. Highly recommend Richard for all you dog care needs. Lovely guy and your dog will be very happy and cared for! Will definitely use him again in the future!

    Mikey had amazing time with Richard at the end of August. He had plenty of social walks in beautiful, green parks and Richard sent me plenty of updates and videos of how much fun my dog was having. I even thought, Gee, I need to leave him more often!! I appreciate all the great work and effort and would definitely use his services again.
