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.

    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.

    Our Husky , Taiga , came back from Robs house yesterday , having had a lovely weekend with him, Bella and Alfie. Rob is a relaxed guy, who communicates well and that just makes the whole process really easy. We felt very happy to leave our girl in his care and would definitely book with Rob again.

    Rob was flexible and considerate of our dog’s needs when he looked after her on her first overnight stay, and sent us lots of lovely photos afterwards. Wouldn’t hesitate to book again.
