About Kate

I currently work casually as a dog walker. Dog walks consists of smelling, cardio and agility if the dog takes an interest. I also teach basic manners on walks if I pick up on anything. I love going the extra mile even if that means a longer walk or more time at the dog park (no extra charge applicable) I have experience of over 5 years, however, i have been working in the pet care industry for the past 5 years as a volunteer and casually for neighbours. I hold a pet first aid certificate, vet nursing (both parts) qualification and certificate in canine training and behaviour. I am currently studying via correspondence through the British canine school to add to my knowledge bank. My own pack consists of two miniature long haired dachshunds, a blind golden Labrador, hunterway X sharpei and boxer . I also have knowledge with parrots I currently own a African grey, galah, Alexandrine and eclectus. My other pets consist of a Flemish giant rabbit and two guinea pigs.

-I am willing to do a free meet and greet. This will allow you to ask me questions etc. No question is silly!

- I have a fixed price for walks. I decide the length due to the dogs' needs. This is important as different dogs need different stimulation. The minimum walk period is 45minutes. However, for dogs that are higher energy, I extend this to up to 1 hour 30 minutes at no extra cost to fury friends owners.

- I am very flexible and like spending as much time with your furry friend. NO Matter the time over the base time, the base rate applies.

Hi Kate

Thank you so much for looking after Harley and Chelsea and staying the night. Also thank you for giving Harley his tablets. Really appreciate it. The animals were well looked after. I will definitely recommend Kate and we will definitely have Kate back again.
