About Chris

from an early age I loved animals in any shape or form, but always had a special bond with dogs. I would always want to stop in the street and pet them, I would drive my mum mad screaming in my pram to stop as I wanted to stroke a dog we had passed. When I was five I suffered a massive asthma attack and my lung collapsed and it was touch and go for a while. I had never suffered with asthma before so this was totally out of the blue. As a result my specialist said that having a family dog was out of the question. This went on for years and every appointment I would ask can I have a dog yet, only to be given the same answer. I drove my parents and my specialist up the wall, begging them to let me have a dog. Eventually I received the news I had wanted to hear for so long, I could have a dog. As you would expect the list of dogs I could have was short, very short and we welcomed Kerry a gorgeous Boxer pup into our home. Over the years we had 3 Boxers and everyone was treated like my kid brother or sister (Only child you see) much to the amusement/concern of my parents. They simply were not just dogs, but my best friends. Leaving home was a traumatic experience for me, I wasn't sad to leave mum and dad, but Jack my beloved Boxer. Years of renting in Manchester forbid me from getting a dog, so I resorted to sitting for friends dogs, walking friends dogs and popping home to see my parents obviously, so I could get some "Jack" time. Now I live in Worcester with my two babies, Jasper and Baxter both Cockapoos, and the apples of my eye, obviously I love my partner more, when asked but we both no this isn't true. If you have any doubt of my love/passion/obsession with dogs, I'll let you into a secret many of my friends call me the "Dog Whisperer" as I still have to stop in the street and make a fuss of any dog I see.

    Great service, felt very confident that Lola was left in professional, safe hands. We went away and enjoyed our holiday and Lola had lots of fun too. I would not hesitate to recommend Chris.

    We met Chris and introduced him to Rosie before he walked her for us. We were very happy with his service and I'm sure Rosie was to Well done Chris 😀

    Met Chris for the first time a week or so before he had Rubes for the night. We met his two dogs who were lovely and Rubes seemed to get on ok after a tentative start. We left Rubes with Chris for two days and one night and I think she loved it. She came back very happy. Chris sent some updates during the day to let us know she was fine. Will definitely be using Chris again when we go away, and am recommending him to family and friends.
