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!

    We are really happy with Richard. He is so good with Louis & Smudge, we are completely confident that the boys are very well looked after. Also, Richard is so reliable & punctual- which makes our lives a lot easier. I hesitate to recommend Richard in case he gets too busy!!

    Richard is a fantastic and reliable sitter; one of the best I've ever used. He collected and dropped off my dog, including a late evening drop off. While we were away he provided regular updates. DaVinci clearly loved his stay. He came home bouncy and energised, as if he just had his own holiday. I highly recommend Richard, and will definitely use again, without any concern.

    Richard is a great pet sitter. He took care of our dogs, anticipated their needs and provided a great environment during their stay with him.
