Angela – Certified & Licensed Trainer

In 2005 Walkie Walks started its very successful life in Hertfordshire offering owners dog walking and boarding, after my husband and I adopted my mothers dog a Westie Called Rosie. In 2014, we all moved to Minnis Bay, Birchington to be by the sea where I originally grew up. As a child I was lucky to have had lots of different pets, and my late mother was a kennel club registered breeder. This is where my fascination about dogs began!

Since then Walkie Walks has grown offering owners Individual Dog Walks or for multiple dogs from the same home. Puppy and Dog Basic Obedience Training or for the (Adolescent!) who seems to have forgotten the training! and a Pet Care Service, Walk & Train Programme and Virtual Online Training.

I’m also lucky to have a fantastic team Pat and Karen ❤️

Over the years to now, I’ve helped dog owners with their rescue dogs where they may be struggling with certain behaviours, and not sure what to do! Also the new Puppy that owners want to settle into their home and to grow up well trained, with a lasting relationship!

I absolutely love what I do, My mission is to continue to help dogs and owners understand each other’s language. Creating a happy dog-happy owner and that special bond!

My training is Modern, Kind and Force-Free, using Positive Reinforcement and science based methods. Making it fun for you and your dog, achieving great results!

Over the years I’ve attended many hands-on practical and theoretical dog training courses with Celebrity and World renowned trainer Steve Mann-Institute Of Modern Dog Trainers (IMDT).

I’ve also completed several of the Think Dog and Clever Dog practical and theoretical Courses with international Clinical Animal Behaviourist and Trainer, Sarah Whitehead (BA, MSc) and Stella Bagshaw the (Clicker Queen).

After which Sarah Whitehead personally asked me to join her team of Clever Dog Method Licensed Trainers.

I still continue with my own personal development, staying up to date with the latest research and training, attending courses, seminars, webinars. I’m also a member of Sarah Whitehead’s inner circle the only online CPD portal for dog trainers and Behaviourist.

I’m Fully Insured, DBS checked, Canine First Aid Trained and Vet recommended. With my many years hands-on experience and knowledge of helping owners with their dogs and pets, you can rest assured that you and your dog or pet are in the best of hands.

Karen – Professional Dog Walker And Pet Carer

My life has always been filled with animals, I have kept all kinds of animals in the past, from rabbits and guinea pigs to budgies and cats but my big passion has always been dogs – my home without a dog in it would be just a house. I currently have one yorkie called Boo, sadly Gizmo her sister past away in March 2021. I have also rescued many different animals, whether it be the little mouse that the cat brought home that went back to his freedom with a full tummy or the escaped horse running down the middle of the road, I pick up injured birds or lost pets all returned back to where they should be. Now I find myself walking other peoples dogs it truly is the best job I have ever done, I’ve been doing this now for over 3 years and absolutely love it I believe it is what I was born to do, I love and care for everyone of them as if they were my own, and they reward me with their own love back and their wagging tails – everyday is a happy day with a happy four legged friend by my side.

Pat – Professional Dog Walker And Pet Carer

I’ve always had cats Micky a male tabby & Tinker who lived till she was 17. We then got another cat Tinker Two, who had a cat friend who moved away which made her sad so we got an additional cat called Cassie, they loved each other so much, always together. They lived till they were 18 years old.

Our 14 year old Cocker Spaniel called Honey who we rescued when she was 5, sadly past away in February 2021. When we got she had some behavioural issues, (separation anxiety and being protective) which we have learnt and Managed to deal with.

I have been with the Walkie Walks team for over 5 years now, walking so many different dogs and looking after so many pets, it’s truly fantastic!
