Totally Barking Pet Services in Leigh-on-Sea, Essex

My name is Jeanette and I've been professionally walking dogs since January 2011. I worked for a local company in Thurrock but when I moved to Benfleet I decided to set up my own company and 'Totally Barking Pet Services' was born.

Totally Barking Pet Services

I am passionate about all dogs and have 2 of my own. I love all dogs whether they be large or small and all the dogs in my care, whether, coming out for the ir daily exercise, or staying in my home with me, will be treated with the love and care that I give my own dogs

At Totally Barking we can offer a comprehensive and professional range of pet services and we understand that there are different reasons for people needing their dogs walked so we offer a range of packages to suit all needs, dogs can join us for their daily fun fix or come out occasionally when needed. The group walks are a great way for dogs to play and have fun with fellow canines and make new friends and return to you tired and happy, we fully believe that a tired dog is a happy dog.

We are fully insured and police checked

We cover the following areas in Essex - Leigh-on-Sea, Hadleigh, Eastwood, Benfleet, Thundersley, Rayleigh, Pitsea, Billericay, Basildon, Laindon, Langdon Hills, Corringham,Stanford Le Hope, East Tilbury and surrounding areas

Group Dog WalksCRB CheckedFully Insured Dog Walker

Our Services
One Hours Group Walking: We do group walking where your dog can come out with a small group of dogs to a local country park and have a fun time and get plenty of exercise. This alleviates boredom whilst you are busy and also helps to socialise your dog with others. We collect your dog in an air conditioned and vented van that is fully crated so your dog can travel in a comfortable, safe environment. Once at the park we do an hours walk in a wooded area where the dogs can stretch their legs, swim in the pond and have lots of play time. We do basic training with your dog i.e. sit, stay, down etc.

We then take the dogs back to their homes tired and happy until you return home. We will dry the dogs with towels and try to return them as clean as is physically possible. The dogs are welcome to join us anytime you need them out of the house so 1 or 2 walks a week or anything up to every day of the working week. Some dogs like to join us for a couple of weeks a year if you are unable to walk the dogs at that time.

We are fully pet first aid trained and carry first aid kits in the van to deal with minor cuts and grazes. We also carry treats, poo bags and fresh water

Solo Dog Walks: If your dog is not very sociable with other dogs we have very limited spaces available for solo dog walks these are usually half hour toilet breaks that allow your dog to stretch its legs and get out of the house

Home Boarding: You can give your dog a holiday all of its own whilst you are away.  The dogs come to live with us in our homes, with our dogs, and get treated like a member of the family and get all the home comforts our own dogs do.  You just need to supply your dogs food, bowl and bedding so that your dog feels at home and you can then go away knowing that your dog won't be shut in a kennel all day, but will be getting lots of love and cuddles.

Puppy Visiting: If you are considering getting a new puppy then maybe we can help.  We can come round whilst your dog is too young to leave the home and spend half an hour with them giving them their lunch, playing wth them and cleaning up after any accidents they may well have had.  We give them lots of love and cuddles and do some basic toilet training with them whilst we are there.  We can then progress to giving them 15 minutes walking time once they have had all their innoculations and help them to get used to 'the big outdoors'

Pets to Vets: We appreciate that it's not always easy to get home to take your loved one to the vet when they need it, or using public transport with an animal is very difficult, so we can pick up the animal, take it to the vet for it's treatment and then reurn it to you.  All you have to do is make the appointment and then give us a call.

“Jeanette and kayleigh are both great with my schnauzer. He is like a grumpy old man sometimes but they still take him out and take great care of him. I am very confident that my dog is in safe hands when he is out with the totally barking girls. A great business with true animal lovers looking after the dogs. ”

- Katharine Sakarya

“My two rescue girls from Cyprus have been walking with Jeanette and the gang since they were 5 months old, and quickly became confident enough to walk off the lead and come back when called. Jeanette and the team at Totally Barking are professional, friendly and reliable and most importantly, the dogs absolutely love them - I wouldn't trust anyone else! ”

“Jen looks after our boy George every day and he loves her and his walks with the other dogs. Couldn’t ask for a better well run service and seen a difference in our boy in the time she has walked him. Thanks Jen and totally barking”

- Daniel Peters

“I cannot recommend Totally Barking more. We have been using Jen for over a year now and our dog smudge absolutely loves his walks. Not only has Jen been there on short notice when needed saving us on a number of occasions, we have actually seen an improvement in our dogs overexcitable behaviour. The service Jen offers makes things a lot more convenient for us with her collecting Smudge and dropping him home after. We have a very happy dog and this is totally down to the expertise of Jen. ”

- Kerry Fox

“Jeanette is an excellent dog walker and runs a safe, professional service. Her love of all dogs comes shining through and more importantly our Dachshund Ralph absolutely adores her. His recall has significantly improved since Jeanette started walking him. Jeanette also runs doggy Day Care which we have used and this has been excellent. We can go out for a special occasion and know that Ralph is safe and having a wonderful time.s”

“Jen and her team have been great with hiccup. She comes and collects him and takes him out for lovely group walks. He gets great socialisation with other dogs and always comes home tired. Can’t recommend Jen and her team highly enough. ”

“Patrick, my gorgeous king Charles has been walking and boarding with Jen since he was a puppy. He's 8 this Feb'18. He loves her and he loves staying with her whilst I go away. He always gets so excited when he sees her van pull up on the drive. With Patrick socialising from such a young age, has definitely bought out his friendly, tolerable, playful, loveable personality! A* service given with heaps of love & cuddles ”

- Marie

“I would definitely recommend totally barking to anyone looking for a dog walker or boarding. Jeanette and now Kayleigh have been walking and boarding my dog Louis since he was 7 months old. He definitely isn’t the easiest dog to walk either! They have great communication and if they can’t help with something such as boarding dates they will always try to help to find an alternative. Thanks Jeanette and Kayleigh! ”

- Kerry Clark

“My dog loves his weekly walk where he can socialise with a group of other dogs! Thank you to everyone at totally barking pets for looking after him And taking him out come rain or shine! ”

“Absolutely brilliant service. My dog loves it. They are always on time and are very very good. Bailey (my dog) loves the treatment and care they take of him. He loves his walks and is better for the love, care and attention they give him. Excellent walkers.”

“Always on hand to help with my Benjy who loves going out with Jen and girls - don’t know what I would do without them. X”

“Jen has been walking my Newfoundland/St Bernard Cross, Elvis, twice a week for a couple of years. When she first came to meet him she was so warm and friendly and obviously loved dogs and Elvis loved her! I was also really impressed with how professionally she ran her business. One of the many lovely things that Jen does is to put videos and pictures from the walks on her Facebook page. It's so lovely to be able to see your dog having so much fun! Jen always tries to help out if I need extra walks or to change days. I don't know what Elvis and I would do without her now! ”

- Claire Bowyer

“Have had my shitzu walked with Jeanette for a while now and he absolutely loves it! Lovely people! And great prices too! Wouldn’t go anywhere else would 100% recommend! X”

“I love my walks with Jeanette, I think my mum sends me to get a break from me. But don't telI her, but I really look forward to going out on my walks and seeing my other doggie friends! If I'm a good pup I sometimes get treats too! I've also been to Jeanette's home for a stay and made to feel at home. I would definitely recommended day's out with Jen and I think my mum dose too! Hope to see you on a walk. Love Lady 🐾”

“Jeanette and Kayleigh have been walking our 1 year old Shih Tzu, Teddy, for about 7 months and prior to that they came and did puppy visits whilst my fiancé and I are at work. Teddy really looks forward to seeing either Jeanette or Kayleigh every day and going out for walks with his "mates". His overall excitement when he sees one of the two each day goes to show just how well cared for he is when he is out with them. Teddy has also home boarded with Jeanette when we went on holiday, we couldn't trust anyone else to take as good a care of Teddy as they do and as a result we couldn't recommend their services enough ”

- Matt Cullum

“I would highly recommend Jeannette andTotally Barking Pet Services. Jen has been walking my English Beagles (George and Stan) for nearly three years. She taught them recall when off lead something I was nervious about. They are totally happy with Jen and I am confident they will be totally safe and well looked after when they are with her. It always lovely to see how excited my boys are when Jen comes to pick them up. They love her enormously. I wouldnt trust my boys with anyone else.”
