About Us...

It's long been a dream of ours to work with animals in some way, but it wasn't until Debbie was made redundant that we were able to start turning that dream into reality. We first hit upon the concept of Pet Sitting a few years ago after returning from a two week family holiday to France. Whenever we've gone away, we've always left our six cats in a cattery, but when we took Shakespeare and Tigerlilly, our two Maine Coons for the first time, we realised we had to find an alternative...

...The usually happy-go-lucky pair howled like banshees when we took them with our other four cats to the cattery and were so distressed by their new surroundings that we nearly cancelled our holiday then and there! Of course we didn't, but upon our return two weeks later, as well cared for as the cats had been, we immediatedly began looking for an alternative. That alternative turned out to be Pet Sitting.

The more we read and researched about Pet Sitting, the more we fell in love with the concept. And it only took one off-the-cuff remark from Debbie, 'why aren't we doing this, this job is right up our street!'

Of course, like every other aspect of our relationship, she was right and it didn't take long for the idea of starting our own Pet Sitting business to gain some momentum... 

...But while we were both working in quite demanding jobs at the time, the dream remained a dream for quite a while. We kept the idea alive by day-dreaming and imagining what it would be like to run our own business together. It was all too easy to get caught up in the fantasy, but we stayed optimistic. One day we'd be able to do it, we were sure of it.

And low and behold, we were right. A mere six months after our initial idea, Debbie came home with an announcement - 'I'm being made redundant.' That sort of news would fill many with dread, but we took it as an oppurtunity. An oppurtunity to make our dream come true... 

...What followed was six months of blood, sweat and tears and I have to say, we loved every minute of it! While holding down a full-time job and starting up your own business is never going to be easy, the excitement of what the future held for us kept us going and still keeps us going.

Now, with a multitude of qualifications to our name, including Dog First Aid, Dog Grooming and Dog Behavioural Training, we get to spend the bulk of days walking, grooming, playing and looking after some amazing animals.


Whether it's giving an adorable puppy a well-deserved groom in our very own Grooming Salon...

...or taking an energetic Springer Spaniel on his daily walk around the beautiful Welsh countryside.

It truly is a pleasure and a priveledge to run DandyWalks Pet Services.
