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 has been amazing bey was quite at home with Bella and Alfie, totally spoilt by rob. She’s the biggest bullmastiff baby in the world and rob pandad to her every need. Even hand feeding her in the first week. I think bey will be sad without her friends but will most certainly ask for rob to sit her again. Massive thanks for keeping her so well and keeping us up to date regularly with all the pics xxx

    Thanks very much, it was a pleasure to have Bey stay for her holiday, she is a good natured gentle giant and welcome back anytime.

    Agnes is a very sad dog now she is home - which says it all about what a lovely time she had with Rob and his dogs. We loved all the photos, and we kept up to date regularly. Would highly recommend this dog buddy

    Sancho had a wonderful time with Rob, and Alfie and Bella are so lovely and welcome Sancho in to their home. When I collected him Rob shared lots of photos and all the details of Sancho's stay - it's easy to see why he is so happy with Rob with all the walks & playtime, as well as some time set aside for a little snooze. Couldn't think of anywhere else for Sancho to stay. Really excellent - thank you

    Thank you. It was great to see Sancho again, he has grown both in size and confidence during the last few months. He is an adorable young lad, hope to see him again soon.
