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.

    Harry has had a very happy day playing with Rob’s dogs and going out on lovely walks in the countryside. He has come home really tired and content. We felt completely confident leaving our puppy as Rob had kindly invited us to his home prior to our first booking and we could see what a great dog lover he is. Rob sent us through some beautiful photos from Harry’s day out and now we have booked for more days and even boarding. I would definitely recommend Rob.

    Taiga, our 13 year old Husky, had another great visit with Rob last week, when we went on an 8 night cruise. We always feel happy and confident about leaving our girl with Rob. He is very good at keeping in touch while we’re away and sends photos of Taiga and messages about how she’s getting on , which are lovely to receive. Rob clearly loves dogs and we wouldn’t want to leave Taiga with anyone else.

    Thanks very much Lea, Taiga is a lovely girl, I really enjoy having her stay, she gets on great with my dogs, also, this time she took a liking to a young Labrador who was staying with me, I think he really benefited from the experience.

    Rob was brilliant with our Labrador. He had constant attention, lots of walks and play. Will definitely book with him next time
