About David

I have never owned a dog myself, but I am used to being around dogs. I have helped out at the local Animal Rescue Centre as a volunteer and also do voluntary work for The Cinnamon Trust. Dogs seem to like me and to date I have come across four stray dogs and have been able to track down their owners.
Having lived for the last 60 odd years in the town of Ottery St Mary, I have good knowledge of all the parks, fields and paths that are suitable for dog walking, and which ones are still OK to use during wet weather.

    David, we can not thank you enough. You are absolutely brilliant! Just brilliant! Looks like you and Bella had a lovely time, lots of long walks and how grateful we are that you constantly messaged us with photos and updates. We really didn’t need to worry about leaving her and as long as she stays with you, we won’t worry again. See you in June........Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

    Our two Tibetan Terriers, never been left before, stayed with David for two weeks and had a great time. Dave looked after them really well and kept in touch with us. We were really nervous about leaving our boys for the first time but regular updates and photos helped tremendously. Thanks for being such a great dog buddy Dave - same two weeks next year Please!!

    Hi Thank you for the great review, and the tipple. If you can let me know the actual dates for next year, I will put them in my 2020 diary. I hope that Bob and Gizmo will quickly settle back into your routine. David
