I can highly recommend Darren of The Dog Walkers. He worked with us at the Wildlife Sanctuary and was in charge of the management of all our dogs at the facility. He had to not only feed and care for them but stimulate and exercise them as well as administer medication for those that needed special care. He was always patient and professional showering all the dogs with love and attention. A true animal lover that I would trust to look after any animal.

Exercised dogs are happy dogs

 As The Dog Walkers and Professional pet caregivers we would like to introduce ourselves.
Vivienne and I met over 2 years ago whilst I was on holiday in South Africa. I am a Carpenter by trade and an animal lover by heart. For over 35 years I have loved and cared for my own dogs, cats, and exotic pets. I have always wanted to move away from building sites and follow my dreams of working with animals to make a living. Viv left the corporate world about 10 years ago to follow her passion of working with animals. Over the years, against all odds in a male dominated industry she was able to successfully build a Wildlife Consulting business where she was professionally involved in the hand rearing of wild cats such as serval & caracal, the capture, relocation, transportation, and rehabilitation of various other animals from small antelope to rhino and When Viv decided that she would join me in Manchester there was no doubt in our minds that with our mutual love for animals and the outdoors the logical step would be for us to find a way to follow our hearts and work with animals and so The Dog Walkers was established. 

We have been walking dogs and caring for people’s pets since the first lockdown and loving it. We pride ourselves in being able to offer a professional but personal service to our clients. Whether we're out walking your special little friend or looking out for them whilst you are away from home, you can be rest assured that they are in experienced and caring hands. We know that they are never just your “pets” they are an incredibly special part of the family and whilst they are out with us, we will take great care to treat them as just that – special! 

The Dog Walkers 

When you give us your trust to walk your dog or care for your other “pets” and place your family member in our care and supervision we understand how difficult and nerve racking this can be and that is why we at The Dog Walkers are committed to upholding a nationally recognized and rigorous code of practice for dog walkers and pet sitters as laid down by the national association of pet sitters and dog walkers - NARPSUK. We want your dogs to be safe, happy, and exercised when they are out walking with us. We can walk them around your neighbourhood, but we prefer taking them to varied Meadows, woods, large parks and trails in Trafford, South Manchester and SK postcodes giving them the opportunity to experience and explore new and exciting places, letting them have as much fun as possible and never walking the same way twice per week. If your pup/dog should get wet and grubby whilst out and about, we will gladly dry your furry friend down with your towel when we arrive back at your home. Our motto is "going the extra mile"  and it's our motto because we never know where the extra mile will lead us.

The Dog Walkers can guarantee that we will become your pup’s 2nd best friend (next to you of course) and we will do our level best to reassure you that they are having a great time when they are out with us - as they say the proofs in the pudding, and we expect the boys and girls to always be excited for our arrival and THEIR walk. It would be our pleasure to send you photographs and vids of them enjoying their time with The Dog Walkers.

Meet and Greet

We enjoy offering that personalized service and therefore like to meet with both you and your pets first to find out about any special requirements, behavioural issues, or illness your dog/friend may have prior to walking or caring for them. This will also give you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have for The Dog Walkers and to make certain that we are going to be a good fit for one another.  

20minutes - Free

Dog walking (group walking) 

We will only walk dogs 4 at a time per handler and offer single walks for the more nervous and/or temperamental characters amongst us. We also use treats primarily for dog training and reward purposes which we believe keeps them happy and stimulated. We use a lot of positive reinforcement training with our pack as we believe that as with humans this way has the biggest impact on teaching even an old dog some new tricks.

We supply dog leads, biodegradable poop bags, water, reusable non plastic overshoes (so we don't leave our mucky paw prints in your home) and dispose of all waste too.

Should you have any special requirements let us know and we will do our best for you to accommodate.

Key Safe

If you are unavailable when the dog walkers call and want to leave a key safe and secure, but do not have a key safe fitted to your home.

Additionally, if you give us a spare key for access, we will store it securely at our premises and should you ever do get locked out of your home and need your key Darren can deliver your key to you or you can collect from us for a nominal fee - depending on time and place of call out. This offers you the added benefit of never getting locked out of your home again.
