At Dog Walking Services by Darren Larkin, I provide dog walking and fun activities in Tonbridge and the surrounding areas for all breeds of dogs at some of the most affordable rates available. I’ve been working with dogs for over 18 years and understand how to give your dog the best possible experience from a walk in the surrounding areas, helping to exercise them physically and keep them mentally stimulated.

Whatever breed of dog you have, I know how to get the most out of a walk – whether your pet is incessantly excitable or more chilled out. When you come to me for dog walking, you can be sure that your dog will be tired out and ready for a great, well-deserved sleep when they are returned home.

“Darren’s love for dogs is plain to see. Our dog Mylo was nervous in the beginning, but now it’s non stop tail wagging. Darren provides a great and professional service, keeps you updated with photos which is a nice touch. I would strongly recommend him, and your dog will thank you for it.”

“Darren has been amazing for our dog Ralph. He takes him out 4 times a week and always uploads loads of photos to Instagram for us to check out what Ralph’s been up to - - which is normally laying in a paddling pool or in a river!! Darren is flexible on days as my work schedule is not always consistent, and has been able to fit us in for last minute bookings which we really appreciate. Could not recommend Darren enough.”

- Grace Buswell

“We are incredibly happy with the service Darren provides. Teddy is well cared for and has lots of fun. Darren is very flexible and always willing to try to accommodate short notice changes - this is enormously helpful as we both have busy jobs.”

- Doraline Fallon

“Very professional service, if I need extra days Darren fits Rolo in, also I feel Rolo is getting used to other dogs and not so nervous overall. Excellent service.”

- Jean Ware

“Absolutely delighted with the service Darren provides. We have recently moved to the area and finding Darren was the best thing! His care, compassion and commitment to his work and to the dogs is outstanding. Caesar comes home from his walk extremely happy and tired, and looks forward to his next walk! The socialisation with other dogs and time off his lead is very beneficial. I can’t fault Darren, and highly recommend him! :)”

- Jessica and Sean Moran

“Darren has been walking my Border Collie for several months now and Luna is always happy to see him. Darren is reliable and has been very flexible in when he takes her out and has always managed to accommodate my ever changing work pattern. I always appreciate the picture updates too. I would and do recommend Darren.”

- Sharon Sneddon

“We were given short notice by a previous walker, luckily Darren was available to walk our Boxer 5 days a week. I’d already met Darren a couple of times in Tonbridge park. Very reliable and good value service. Darren just loves dogs.”

- Paul Nicholson

“Ripley absolutely adored Darren from the moment he knocked on the door. We don't do regular every day walks, but more an as and when basis, so she only sees him a few times a month, but is so excited every time he turns up; she'll actually roll around onto her back on the sofa, delaying the walk, just to say hello. She always comes back happy and exhausted and recently just had her first group walk. Darren is patient and takes the time to get to know his dogs, before adding them to a "pack". He's communicative and sends photos after the walks, so you can see what they get up to. I'd 100% recommend Darren. He has tonnes of experience with dogs, especially big ones. It's obvious he loves what he does and loved each of the dogs he walks.”

- Rachel Longley

“We cannot recommend Darren highly enough. He helped us out in a really tricky situation and when we were stuck he was so reassuring and professional. Our initial agreement was supposed to be short term. We were so impressed we have made it long-term! He is unbelievably experienced and knowledgeable. We have a large, young, energetic, working breed dog and he’s fabulous with him. We trust him on all levels. When our dog hears the van pull up the excitement is immediate. We found the variety of walks, the communication, pictures etc has been brilliant. We are so happy we found Darren and most importantly so is our dog!! Thanks Darren!!!”

- Robyn Webb

“Darren is trustworthy, reliable, friendly and most importantly, our dog Rocco absolutely loves him! We`re so glad we found him. I can`t recommend him enough. Thank you Darren!”

- Maria Harrington

“We have always found Darren to be responsive, reliable and flexible. Our dog always seems to have a great time with him and we’d highly recommend using him.”

- Hal Shaw

“I have been so happy with the service received from Darren. He is friendly, reliable and handles my unruly Norwegian Elkhound with professional ease. He updates me with photos and videos of Luna on her jaunts which I absolutely treasure. Thank you so much Darren!”

- Zara Marsh

“We have been very pleased with Darren`s dog walking services: he has been very reliable and trustworthy and has looked after our young dog with great care. He has been a great help to us. Highly recommend!”

- Kathryn Nash

“Darren takes our Beagle on a weekly walk. Our dog is walkways very excited when Darren arrives and exhausted when he returns home. Darren is very reliable and always turns up on time and lets himself into the house. I get to see regular photos of my dog having fun on his walks. Highly recommended.”

- Lucy Wise

“Really happy with our dog-walker Darren. He is passionate about what he does and committed to the job. His reliability in all weathers, along with his clear love for canines are great attributes and why we are very happy with his service.”

- Barca1999

“Darren is great with Evie. She is a reactive GSD and we were concerned we'd struggle to find someone to take her on. Darren was recommended by a good friend and he has been great. He's very flexible and always willing to offer advice.”

- Sharon Davey

“Awesome service, very professional and my dog loves Darren and his weekly walks with him and the other dogs. Very trustworthy and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.”

- Lynne Fleming

“Darren has a great rapport with my dog. He is reliable, flexible and considerate. Fergal comes back from his walks happy and relaxed, clearly having had a good time. Darren’s communication is excellent and I cannot recommend him highly enough.”

- Katy Joiner

“Excellent in every area. With both of us working Darren’s dog walking service helps us no end. Darren’s professionalism coupled with him always being available and willing to help gives us a great deal of reassurance that regardless of our schedules our dog will be socialised and exercised by someone with a passion for his job and great experience with dogs of all ages and sizes.”

- Michael Webb

“Darren takes our young Cocker Spaniel and older Tibetan Terrier out for two walks/week. It is much enjoyed by both dogs and our once nervous Cocker Spaniel can’t wait to see him now. Darren has also provided at home dog/house sitting services on a couple of occasions for us when we needed to be away at a weekend. If we did not have complete faith in Darren and his professionalism, we would not have considered this as an option. From our personal experience, Darren provides an outstanding level of care and dedication to his canine clients and peace of mind to their owners. He is thoroughly trustworthy, punctual, consistent and organised. Because he cares about the level of service he is providing, he will also go the extra mile if necessary. He cares about his network and will advocate for fellow professionals if he can. We would not hesitate to recommend him and think very highly of the business he has created in a relatively short period of time.”

- Samantha Kahl

“The best thing i have done is use Darren's dog walking services. my dog has always been a difficult dog to walk, he would be uncontrollable, would pull, go for other dogs, so i used to avoid walking Ruben in places where we would bump into other dogs, id walk him very early in the morning or late at night. it wasn't enjoyable. i spoke with Darren regarding my concerns that my dog wasn't socialised for X reasons and he came and met Ruben, we agreed to see how it goes on a trial basis. Ruben is a different dog - he can be around other dogs with next to no problems. He walks better, less pulling and he is lovely to walk now. It is so nice coming home from work to a calm dog who has clearly got his energy out. I'm so pleased. its made such a difference to us all. Thank you Darren. highly recommend”
