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 went above and beyond expectations to ensure that Harry would be settled whilst we were on our first holiday without him. Harry had a brilliant time playing with Alfie, Bella and Rob’s host dogs. Sancho was a great playmate for him and Rob sent through some amazing photos of them together out on their wonderful walks, beautiful shots of Harry as well as regular updates on how Harry was doing. It was so reassuring to know that our dog was safe and happy. Rob is friendly and approachable and what I really like, gives an honest account about how your dog coped whilst you were away. He really cares about your dog. Fantastic! Thank you so much!

    Thanks very much. Harry did really well during his first holiday away from you both. He is a happy, playful, affectionate pup, can’t wait to see him again.

    Rob looked after my mischievous puppy Maddy while I was at work for a couple of weeks and I couldn't of been happier with his service. Maddy came home every day happy, clean and tired and was always very excited to return to Rob in the morning. Every day I would be sent great pictures of Maddy exploring different parts of the countryside and playing with other dogs. I was happy at work knowing she was safe and having a great time. Thank you so much Rob, I couldn't of asked for a better person to come along. Would always be my go to guy in the future. 10/10 service.

    A big thank you to Rob, Bey really loves her time with him and his dogs along with any visiting friends that Rob may have alongside Bey. You know Bey is happy to go with Rob, when he walks in the gate and she’s like yes he is here. He cares, walks and gives her big cuddles whilst we are away and we are always at peace knowing she is in safe hands. Bey is our baby and he makes sure he gives her all the love and attention she craves during our time away. Couldn’t recommend a better sitter than Rob, a massive thank you and for all the pics daily.
