The Dog Walker was founded in 2016 by me (Celia)​

I have always loved dogs and grew up in Rutland with a Golden Retriever called Annie. After living abroad for a few years I returned to a dog-free house and it just didn’t feel like home. Luckily I met Captain (the beagle) & his mum through a dog borrowing website and started walking him whenever I could.

I quickly realised the happiest time of my day was the mad greeting I got from Captain every time I went to walk him. So I quit my job, enrolled in a few educational canine courses and thus ‘The Dog Walker’ was born!
