Barks In The Parks Prestwich

Loving them when you can't

Dog Walking In Prestwich

When your pet cant be with you either at home or away I personally feel  having their Dog walker Dog Sitting with them in the dogs own home is the best possible option. It also provides the benefit of added security for your home and care for other pets and plants. Home visits are available for cats and other small animals even in the absence of dogs. Home sitting is also available in the absence of any pets.

I board a limited number of dogs in my own home  in addition to Dog Sitting / Home Sitting and it will be a home away from home experience for them. They will enjoy their holiday as much as you will enjoy yours.Subject to availability.

Owners typically have once or twice daily 1 hour Dog  Walks for their dogs. Dog Walks are  enjoyed in a variety of locations and can be tailored to the age health fitness and type of dog. Ball and Frisbee play can be included where possible. Dog Walks are for a minimum of an hour and transportation time is not part of their walk time. Dogs will never be walked in overly large numbers and each will get individual attention.

I just wanted to take a moment to say what an amazing year it has been. I have had the pleasure of meeting fantastic owners and looking after great dogs and I just wanted to take the time to say thank you for using Barks In The Parks and long may I have the pleasure of Dog Walking and Dog Sitting your loved ones.

Warm Regards



In an increasingly busy working world we don't always have as much time for Dog Walking with our beloved pets as we would like, or that they deserve. I  provide whatever Dog Walking, Dog Sitting, exercise attention care companionship  and fun they need in your absence. This may be in the form of daily single Dog Walks or double Dog Walks, Dog Sitting / home boarding or single or multiple daily visits. Whichever services you access you will have peace of mind knowing their Dog Walking needs are being met and that they are safe  happy and content. I am experienced insured CRB checked (as is required by law to access clients homes) and there is truly no other job that gives me the same satisfaction that I get from Dog Walking and caring for your furry best friends. I can offer a flexible tailored service to suit both your and your pets needs. Be assured your pets safety happiness and well being are of paramount importance to me.


Finding a good dog walker, dog sitter or dog boarder

There will shortly follow a detailed piece on the perils of bad dog walkers but in the meantime here's a short list of the basics.

1) Do you have a trusted family member friend or neighbour with a good dog walker or dog sitter? ask them.

 2) Check the internet check out their reviews and ask to contact their customers, if they are genuine reviews they will try and accommodate this.

 3) Ask other professional dog walkers when your out and about, perhaps you might not get a good referral but you might find out who to avoid.

 4) If you have the opportunity when your out with your dog study the local walkers find out

 A) Who's walking too many dogs.

B) Who's leaving dogs in vehicles while they are walking others

C) Check with the council licensing departmentt that your dog boarder is licensed

 This may seem all too obvious but the amount of people who don't do any of this is astounding but hopefully can be improved or remedied.
