Dog Walking & Home Boarding in the Forest of Dean

About Tim

I'll collect your dog from your own home and take him / her on a one hour energetic and fun walk. In a group with other sociable dogs, we visit places like Mallards Pike with its great doggy dip and May Hill, as well as other dog friendly destinations. Dogs travel in an air conditioned 4x4 SUV with tinted windows that will keep them cool and safe. There are 2 group walks available during the day: A late morning walk and an early afternoon walk. I can also accommodate a shorter group walk for dogs with less energy.

If you are going to be away, why not have your dog stay in our home with us and our own dogs Ruby (8yo German Shorthaired Pointer) and Millie (13yo Patterdale Terrier). They will be part of our family, have dog company and will get plenty of fuss and attention. They will get at least an hour and a half of walks a day plus plenty of time in our secure garden.
This may be a service that you plan for your dog well in advance or may be something that is needed at short notice. Either way it may be a much better alternative for your dog than a kennel. Our home has been inspected and licenced by the Forest of Dean District Council for home dog boarding.

Please note: There will be an additional 20% added to these prices for Bank Holidays, except Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, Boxing Day, New Years Eve and New Years Day on which days the prices listed will be double.

    Henry had a lovely time with Tim. We were made very welcome and felt very happy that Henry was being cared for in a safe secure home environment. We had regular updates and photos and a video of Henry playing which was lovely. Thank you so much Tim from us and Henry.

    Hi Joanne ..... it was lovely to have Henry staying with us. He settled in immediately and got on so well with everyone - canine and human! A very well mannered dog, fun to be with and a pleasure to walk too - his training showed. He can bring his bed and bowl to us anytime. Tim & Helen

    Hi Prue....many thanks for your great feedback. It's very much appreciated. Poppy is lovely dog - great to have around the house where she was playful and huggable! Out and about she loved the forest, getting muddy and running and playing with the other dogs. She can come back anytime! Tim & Helen

    Tim is highly recommended! He went above and beyond for us and our 2 dogs and I can't thank him enough for taking care of my pampered pooches!
