Caroline Capon Review 2022

"I found it difficult to find a course that provided the face-to-face training I wanted, so I was pleased to come across this course. It has covered everything I was hoping for and more and has left me feeling well prepared and knowledgeable ahead of starting my dog walking business. Thank you very much to Christine and the team."

Clare Murphy Review 2022

"Really professional and informative course, I really feel as if I’ve come away from this course with the tools I need to start my own dog walking business.  Thank you to Christine and the dogs for being super friendly and helpful." Clare Murphy 2022
John Xu Review 2022

"This has been comprehensive despite just taking two days. I have learnt a whole lot about laws and regulations surrounding dog walking and transport, including forms that a professional dog walker must provide and be provided with a client. Possible risks and dangers to clients and dogs when walking and precautions to be taken as well as how to bandage a leg and a tail properly. We learnt all about the different appearances and temperaments of different breeds, and much more! What I most enjoyed was the practical part of attaching a harness and a lead to a dog and taking her for a short walk. I have been provided with feedback for all parts of the course and have been told how I should give more vocal commands to ensure the dog stays by my side during the walk."   John Xu 2022

Just wanted to say this was absolutely brilliant for a newbie to dog walking as well as someone like myself that has been doing this over 10 years! Very educational! I learnt things I never even thought about. Great to be brought up to date with new laws and regulations! Will help you to make your business even more successful. Tutors are fantastic, happy, fun and patient! Money well spent! Looking forward to my next course! Thank you absolutely animals for helping me feel comfortable (I have dyslexia and can feel out of place in a classroom like an environment and in role play) not once did I feel embarrassed or out of place!
