A Little Bit


We were married in June 2017, and in August of

the same year Monica moved to London from the United States to be with Dan.  We began our dog walking business in September 2017.


Growing up in America, Monica raised her own dog, a white miniature schnauzer named Chip.  Her family got Chip as a 3-month-old puppy in 2005, and Monica took care of him until she moved to the UK.


Because he's a paratrooper in the British army, Dan works especially well with energetic dogs in all weather conditions.  He can handle multiple dogs at once and frequently takes them running.

As we met with more and more clients during the startup period of our business, we began noticing common concerns of theirs in their search for a good dog walker.  Many owners told us they needed someone they could trust to keep their dogs safe, as opposed to someone who took too casual an approach to handling a valued member of their family.  We also heard often about the importance of a reliable walker: someone who very rarely cancelled and wouldn't leave owners stuck on short notice.


We do our very best each day with our clients' dogs, making sure to carefully look after each of them.  We also keep an organised schedule and communicate regularly with owners so they know they can depend on us.  To help dogs with certain behavioural problems, we became dog trainers, completing coursework from The Cambridge Institute of Dog Behaviour and Training.  In addition, we have experience in basic puppy training, as a few of the dogs we walk regularly have been with us since they were just a few months old.

We’ve been fortunate to look after a wide variety of dogs, and we take great pride in the quality of care we provide.  Many of our clients have told us they feel most secure leaving their dogs in our care, and we feel privileged to be their first choice.  Our canine crew certainly keeps us busy, and we love working as a team with them all!
