I grew up with dogs, cats, goldfish, a tortoise and even a budgie. I have looked after dogs as a teen and when working in a Secondary school, I created and managed a menagerie of reptiles, amphibians, rodents and insects.
Today in our busy and active household, alongside my two pre-teen and teenager children, we have, our lovely Tess, the TrailHound. She is probably the calmest and most tolerant dog around.
As my wife and I work from home, we have opened our house to dogs from friends and neighbours. So I am always walking dogs and we will typically have a visitor for the day or overnight.
Our poochy lodgers can always find a spare dog bed in our semi-detached house or office and they have the run of our lengthy garden.
We enjoy the very mixed and varied opportunities for walks in and around the Pinner Parks. There are lots of good nature trails and woods close by, offering plenty of sniffing and hunting amongst the growth. For our doggy pals that like a splash, our walks take us along the River Pinn and Yeading Brook and I always make sure we have plenty of towels to rub them down and dry them off.
With our weekend visitors, we can often take them out into the Woods at Ruislip and on Hikes with my Cub Pack. The Cubs love to meet our friendly lodgers and this also gives them confidence in meeting and handling dogs correctly and safely.
I am also First Aid Qualified. Understand Dog Psychology, Nutrition and work with our owners on their lovely pet's behaviour and training.
We are registered members of the National Association of Pet Sitters, covered with full insurance to walk dogs on and off the lead, transportation as well as key replacement etc. We are also licensed through the council as an Animal Boarding Establishment.
We will look after young and old, large or small and we will keep you informed of how they are getting on.
