About Rob

A big animal lover, I currently own 2 dogs (a lakeland terrier and a Bedlington). I work from home and walk my dogs every day in wonderful surroundings, so as far as I am concerned, the more the merrier!

Although my dogs are medium-sized, I have owned bigger dogs so can handle bigger breeds, provided they aren't aggressive or completely untrained.

Because one of our dogs has lots of allergies, I am pretty conscious about what I feed my dogs, so if you need your dog to have a sensitive/anti-allergy diet/special feeding regimens, I have no problem following your instructions.

In the past, I have also provided a home pet feeding service for customers in the Canterbury and Faversham areas, so am also happy to discuss home visits for your dog too, if you'd prefer them to stay in a familiar environment while you're out or away.

We live in a semi-rural location near to apple orchards, woods, the beach and a number of river paths, so dog walks are never boring and it is generally quite peaceful here. You can see some of the places that I take the dogs for walks in my gallery.

Our house has a medium-sized corner garden with 4-6ft fencing and a gate, so animals are safe here, and there is a bit of a lawn for playing ball. In summer, my dogs love to sun themselves on the deck, so I often leave some beds out for them to lie on and enjoy some fresh air.

We also have plenty of toys and bones lying around to alleviate boredom and direct chewing behaviour into more constructive outlets.

    This was a repeat visit for Tilly and once again she was happy and well cared for while staying with Rob, Bella and Alfie. We are entirely happy to leave her with Rob as he is so patient and kind with all the dogs and so conscientious in their exercising and keeping them company.

    Thank you Julie. Tilly is a very playful girl, she loves the company of the other dogs and made a few new friends this time, look forward to having her stay again soon.

    Rob’s attention is outstanding. Otto is clearly a happy dog while he is with him. I couldn’t ask for more.
