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 is a very caring, patient and understanding dog carer. We are extremely grateful to Richard for looking after our very timid and nervous little dog Billy. 5 stars!! Amanda & James.

    Richard looked after my two lively 9 month old Labradors for 6 nights. It was the first time I had left them for such a long time so I was worried that they would be ok. I needn't of worried, Richard sent me videos, pictures all the time of them, he seems to know all the best parks and walks in the area and they where always having a great time. I would definitely use him again and thoroughly recommend him.
