About me
Welcome to Puppy Dog Tales.
I think it's safe to say that my life is devoted to our four-legged friends. I have 3 dogs of my own who are my whole world.
I've been a dog owner for the past 20+ years and made dogs my entire lifestyle in 2009.  I took the terrifying leap from working as a Medical Secretary and Personal Assistant to a Professional Dog Walker, whilst providing home boarding services for either day care or holiday boarding including other pet services.
Puppy Dog Tales

I am also a Silversmith and previously supplied a family-run jewellers in Leigh Broadway; as well as selling via my website that was TanSilver. That has since taken a back-seat whilst I focused my attention on the dogs. However, I am now once again crafting jewellery alongside puppy dog tales... although now somewhat biased with the whole pet industry!

I also offer home made "Superfood" Broth BearHugz dog treats.

Please feel free to contact me with any queries.

“Tansey has walked my dog for over a year now & he loves his walks & loves Tansey, he has also stayed with Tansey when we have been on holiday , I would highly recommend Tansey she loves all the dogs as if they were her own .”

- Linda mullins

“Tansy has been walking "our boy" Milo for 6 months or so, and we couldn't ask for better! She is totally reliable, caring and wonderful with all the dogs she walks and care's for! An absolute professional, you couldn't want for more! She constantly sends photos and video's on walks to show and reassure that all is well, also providing a lovely memory for owners! To add to all this she provides overnight and holiday stays at a very competitive price with lots of love and family care to help your dog settle and feel safe and relaxed while your away. Milo loved his 3 night stay and didn't want to come home to us! But at least we can go away and know he is well cared for-thank you Tansy! ”

- Derek Plom

“Absolutely fantastic dog walker, Tansey is amazing & our dog Striker adores her. Thankyou for everything, my highest recommendation!”

- Barry White

“Brilliant service and really made my dogs feel comfortable when Tansy visited them in my home! Would definitely recommend and would use again for other services like home boarding when I am on holiday! ”

- Olivia

“We have been using puppy dog tales for a couple of months now and it's the best thing we have done for our dog. He loves spending time out here there and everywhere with his new buddy's walking for miles, but best of all we get pictures and videos showing our boys adventures. Tanzie loves and looks after him like his her dog even down to telling us if his had a poo! ”

- Jackie

“We hired Tansy to walk our Staffie, Betsy, while my husband recovered from a partial knee replacement. Tansy had been recommended to us by my hairdresser. Tansy was absolutely amazing with Betsy and they soon became firm friends. If you are looking for a dog walker who cares I would not hesitate in recommending Tansy. Since my husband has recovered he is back walking Betsy but Tansy has been round to visit us and of course Betsy. If we ever require the services of a dog walker again Tansy would be the person I call upon.”

- Sue

“Tansey has looked after my 2 cats for 2 years now, i can go away knowing my cats are safe and cared for 1 of which is 21 and requires medication twice a day. I never worry about them with Tansey. Would highly recommend Puppydogtales👍”

- Dawn Khajadour

“Tansy is a godsend, she’s walked my Rhodesian Ridgeback puppy whenever I’ve needed her, she’s dependable, reliable and a very trustworthy lady! Highly recommend x”

- Rachael

“Working full time I required a walker for my two doggies. Being given Tansy’s details by my neighbour & contacting her was the best decision I made for me and my dogs. She is reliable, friendly and extremely helpful. Tansy built a bond with my dogs from the start & the fact they get extremely excited to see her when she collects them for walks shows that. I receive videos & pictures during walk times, which is a lovely touch, as the pictures are always fab! One of my dogs had a vet visit not long ago & it was lovely to receive a message from Tansy asking if she was okay, which really proves she grows to have a lot of love for them & that it isn’t only a job, it’s a passion of hers. Due to relocating, I won’t have the help of Tansy for much longer, which really does make me sad. I only hope I can find another Tansy where I’m going! I would highly recommend getting in touch with Tansy. Your dogs are always in safe hands & happy!! ”

- Danielle

“Tansy provides an excellent day boarding service and I’ve also used her weekend boarding too. My little dogs loves going with Tansy so I know she is very happy. I would highly recommend Tansy. ”

- Sue Allison

“When my friend who used to look after my cats moved away I asked her for Tansys details. It's not often both of us go away together but when we do Tansy has been brilliant especially as Pen is 20 years old and i would never put them in a cattery. Tansy always txts everyday to lets us know they are ok. ”

- Dawn

“So glad we found tansy she got us out of a sticky situation. Total trustworthy, highly recommend,you can trust this woman with you dog your house everything. Words dont explain how highly i would recommend this woman,used her services once would use every time. ”

- Denise lester

“When we were getting our puppy we were looking for someone who could come in and meet the needs of Rocky whilst my partner and I were at work. This was quite a stressful process as we would be entrusting a stranger to take care of our puppy and also have keys to our property. We found Tansy's website and read the great reviews online. When we met Tansy we were both confident that we had found the right person to come in and take care of Rocky. Tansy is fully flexible and this was great when Rocky was a small puppy and unable to go on the group walks to begin with. Tansy would do 2 home visits per day then and ensure Rocky went on a little walk by himself and had some playtime with her. Tansy always sends me pictures and videos of Rocky having fun on the group walks with his friends. Tansy has a very warm and friendly personality and her focus is the welfare of each animal in her care. If you are considering getting a dog, but you have to go to work then Tansy is the person you want to be coming in to take care of your dog. I cannot stress enough how amazing she is, she has been so great with Rocky. You can take great comfort in knowing your beloved dog is being taken great care of. You can trust Tansy 110%.”

- Emma

“Tansy is a real treasure. As someone who would rather not go on holiday than leave my dogs, I am very comfortable entrusting Tansy with them. Tansy visits during the day when I am working, not only do I get a regular update Tansy understands their personalities and connects with them knowing if there is something not quite right. or even when they are super hyper! Highly Recommended - Thank you.”

- Lorraine Lunney

“Tansy has been absolutely brilliant, walking our dog Moneypenny twice a week while we're out at work. She has been very flexible and accommodating, even when we have needed to reschedule at short notice. Moneypenny is always excited to see her, and we love receiving the video and photo updates of Moneypenny on her walks. ”

- David & George

“I met Tansy whilst out walking my Jack Russell puppy Mollie a couple of years ago and Mollie instantly loved Tansy who always made such a fuss of her. She has since boarded with Tansy whilst we go on holiday and has a wonderful time there. Tansy takes such good care of her and always keeps us in touch by sending texts and photos. Tansy is very reliable and professional and I would thoroughly recommend her. Mollie is always happy to stay with Tansy and comes home exhausted from all the fun she's had! ”

- Sue

“Our 9 month old Cairn Terrier pup (Nelson) recently home boarded with Tansy whilst we were on holiday. It was going to be Nelson's first time away from home so I was a little nervous- I had no reason to be as Tansy was very professional, friendly and thorough. Before Nelson's 2 week stay with Tansy he spent time with her at 'daycare' and each time he got excited when we arrived at her gate and was exhausted when he got home. When we dropped him off for his holiday he ran straight in and after a fuss with Tansy he was off saying hi to his other 4 legged friends! Whilst we were away Tansy kept us up to date with what Nelson had been up to by sending pictures, this brighten our day and reassured us he was having lots of fun. I would recommend Tansy to anyone looking for a home to home for their furry friends to stay. Nelson will be seeing her again - thank you Tansy ”

- Sam & Nelson

“An absolute excellent service i was very wary at first as most people would be handing over my door keys but felt totally at ease and could enjoy my holiday without worrying about my flat or my cat and at a very reasonable cost i would totally recomend this service to anyone”

- jenny fillarymv

“Tansy has looked after and walked out dogs for many years now. We love the fact we can go on holiday knowing they are just as well looked after by Tansy as they would be in their own home. She provides a very professional service and is truly a home from home for boarding dogs. Her walks are long and interesting for the dogs and mine always come home exhausted. Great service, highly recommended. ”

- Kathryn Spring

“Tansy has been walking our lovely rescue dog scoobey for 3 years now she is totally trustworthy and will do anything you ask of her she is flexible with scoobey walking days and never lets us down. Scoobey waits at the window for her to arrive and goes mad when he see's her pull up . I would 100% recommend Tansey to anyone he is looking for someone trustworthy and reliable to walk their dog.”

- Debbie Russell

“Tansy has been looking after my Daisy for over three years and has truly been a godsend. Tansy came into our lives at a very sad time but thanks to her support and dedication I was able to keep my precious pet Daisy is always happy to see Tansy and every morning waits looking out the window awaiting her special friend. When I go away on holiday I never have any worries leaving daisy with her as I know she is well cared for and should a problem arise Tansy will handle it in a profressional but compassionate way as she would if Daisy was her own. I could not manage without her and Daisy loves her to pieces following her everywhere.....even to the loo.....tansy thank you for all your help and support we both love you xx”

- Penny williams

“Tansy looks after our very shy and nervous "ex-rescue" dog Bradley when I am at work 2 days a week. Tansy is completely trustworthy with keys and indeed you could not meet a nicer person to deal with. Bradley adores Tansy and gets very excited about going out with her. Bradley takes treats from her hand, and if you had seen or knew Bradley before you would not believe the confidence he has now. I feel that Bradley walking/staying with Tansy was one of the best decisions we could have made for him. He loves going out with her and his chums (i.e. Shiva, Buster, Daisy and Presley). I have complete peace of mind whilst at work because Tansy will contact us immediately if there is a problem. Bradley stayed with Tansy at her home this year whilst we were away on holiday and he felt right at home within 5 minutes of being there. Tansy's home is absolutely lovely with lots of rooms and space. It is very clean and pet friendly. We are away again later this year and have absolutely no qualms in leaving Bradley with Tansy again (Bradley thinks he is on his holidays as well). We can then relax and enjoy our holiday knowing if there is a problem Tansy is there and will deal with it and keep us informed. Everyone needs someone like Tansy if you want to leave your dog for any period of time. ”

- Lynn Hollington, July 17th 2014

“Tansy has been walking Presley for us for around 3 years now and he loves it! He goes out every weekday and also goes to Tansy for his holidays. We recently went away for 3 weeks and had no qualms about leaving him for that long, he's in very safe hands and has lots of company whilst at Tansy's (both doggie and human!), I think sometimes he doesn't want to come home!”

- Mark

“Tansy has been looking after Twix and Nelson for years and I never worry about leaving them with her. She will contact you if there are any major problems which gives you peace of mind. Nelson was quite poorly one time whilst we were away and she took good care of him and took him to my emergency vets to receive treatment. I knew he was ok because she treats her visiting dogs as she would her own. She sometimes sends photos of them having a good time with her on their walks. Her house is beautiful and clean and very pet friendly :) Tansy is a happy, likeable lady with three lovely dogs of her own. I'm glad I have her to leave my dogs with as I could never put them in kennels! They have a home from home with Tansy. Xxx”

- Kay

“Tansey has been looking after my two dogs, max and Dennis For years. I trust her completely as I know she has my dogs Well being at the forefront of her mind. Recently my dog max Strained himself while I was on holiday but tansey looked after Him like he was her own, even my vet said I was lucky to have Her looking them! With Tansey looking after max and Dennis I can Go on holiday without any worries, knowing they will be Completely safe, she's brilliant.”

- Rachel birch

“To say we simply adore Tansy would be an understatement, so I'll try & sum it up as succinctly as we can: "We LOVE you Tansy!!!!". It was when I adopted Skye, my 6 yr old Westie last year that I first met Tansy....& it was then that Skye fell in love!!! She was (& still is!!!) able to detect the sound of Tansy's keys as she locks her car before she's even got to our door & Skye's tail begins to wag madly as she knows that she's about to go on her walk. Sasha has just joined our mad family & today was her first taste of the fun & excitement that goes hand in hand with a walk with Tansy!!!!! We all agree that she's Simply the BEST!!!! Xox”

- Debbie, Skye & Sasha

“Tansy looks after our dog fella. Fella home boards with Tansy when we are away and she treats him like one of her family. When we are away Tansy updates me on how Fella is doing and tells me how he loves playing ball and Frisbee, which he absolutely does. I am never in any doubt that when we go away that he will have a great time with Tansy and will be loved. Its like a home from home and I thoroughly recommend Tansy to all.”

- Paula Oughton

“Very professional and reliable service . Both my dogs really enjoy their walks and also the cookies ! . This service enabled me to keep my dogs whilst going through a difficult time for which I am very gratefull . I would highly recommend her !!”

- Paul Doherty

“Buster loves Tansy and is always really excited to see her! He occasionally goes to her for day board and he always comes home happy and shattered. Which takes a lot of doing for a one year old springer spaniel.! He also often goes out for walks with Tansy and seems to enjoy himself a great deal. Tansy always helps with buster's training by using the same methods as I do and together we are getting this very very bouncy and lively spaniel to walk to heel! Tansy is great , very reliable and obviously loves dogs very much”

- Jen farrant

“Tansy is reliable, professional and truly loves what she does. We have used her for years and always goes that extra mile to care for our dog. Highly trusted and recommended. ”

- David Saint

“Tansy has been walking my little Jack Russell Chester for a year now, he goes out three times a week and loves his time with her. He was a very nervous little dog especially around bigger dogs but now he is much more relaxed and happy around his new playmates. Tansy has had Chester board with her and although he has various medical problems i trust Tansy completely to care for him, i would thoroughly recommend her services to anyone.”

- Debbie Smith

“tansy walks eddie my lovely cocker spaniel whilst i am working he looks out of the window looking for her to collect,very reliable and caring.Have also used her home boarding and visited her house absolutely lovely .”

- michelle netting

“Tansy has been absolutely fab since we first started having "Shiva" for walks. She is always caring and considerate for a little dog's needs and understands how to handle her. We completely trust her and know she will do really well with her new venture as she is very devoted to her favourite species!”

- Alan

“Tansy has been walking jazz my dog for two years now ... Jazz throughly enjoys her walks so much so she can hear tansy coming quite a considerable distance away and waits by the door . Tansy is trustworthy and very professional and I wouldn't let anyone just walk into my house ... As I am a police officer .. I don't know what I would do without her thank you ”

- Anthony

“Tansy walks my dog while I'm at work, it gives me great peace of mind to know my dog is in good hands. I would highly recommend Tansy she is a trust worthy person that shows so much love and affection towards our dog.”

- Anna Wholas

- Karen Pidgeon

“I would only ever leave my beloved pets with Tansy, she is trust worthy and is absolutely devoted to every dog that is in her care! 100% recommend her, as well as her home made dog safe treats my little ones LOVE! x”

- Samantha Lambert

“Tansy looks after my little Misluna when I'm working long days. She takes her out when I'm unable to and provides a home from home service when she stays with her. She treats Misluna like one of her own and I never feel guilty when leaving her as I know she's given much love and many cuddles. Misluna loves staying with Tansy and is always excited when I drop her off. ”
