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.

    Rob was great. Our one year old French bulldog seemed to love his stay there. Rob offered for us to bring Albi to meet his dogs beforehand which put us at ease as we already knew they would get on fine. He provided us with updates and pictures while Albi was with him and was very flexible and accommodating with pick up/drop off times. We will definitely book with Rob again next time.

    Thank you. Rene is a big character in a small body, one minute he’s zooming around, the next, he’s enjoying a power nap. Great to meet you both.

    Lola had a great time with her new pals and is well and truly knackered after her stay! Rob kept us up to date with messages and photos, which was really reassuring. We will definitely book Rob again.
