Polite notice

We are unable to walk any dog that is aggressive towards people and/ or other animals. It’s against the law to let a dog be dangerously out of control anywhere, and as such we operate an aggressive dog policy. Should your dog become aggressive towards people and/ or other animals whilst in our care we will terminate our service.

Ellis Sadler

I started using Dan’s dog walking services back in 2019 when he first started up. He is very reliable and professional with my dog Bob, who can be problematic in certain situations, especially with other dogs. Dan has Bob under control at all times and is able to recall him when needed. I wouldn’t trust anyone else with Bob or in my house. Five star services and he doesn’t charge the earth.
