The Dog Walkers - Going The Extra Mile Across South Manchester
As The Dog Walkers and Professional pet caregivers we would like to introduce ourselves.
Vivienne and I met a while back whilst I was on holiday in South Africa. I am Carpenter by trade and an animal lover by heart. For over 35 years I have loved and cared for my own dogs, cats, and exotic pets. I have always wanted to move away from building sites and follow my dreams of working with animals to make a living. Viv left the corporate world about 10 years ago to follow her passion of working with animals. Over the years, against all odds in a male dominated industry she was able to successfully build a Wildlife Consulting business where she was professionally involved in the hand rearing of wild cats such as serval & caracal, the capture, relocation, transportation, and rehabilitation of various other animals from small antelope to rhino and When Viv decided that she would join me in Manchester there was no doubt in our minds that with our mutual love for animals and the outdoors the logical step would be for us to find a way to follow our hearts and work with animals and so The Dog Walkers was established.
We have been walking dogs and caring for people’s pets since the first lockdown and loving it. We pride ourselves in being able to offer a professional but personal service to our clients. Whether we're out walking your special little friend or looking out for them whilst you are away from home, you can be rest assured that they are in experienced and caring hands. We know that they are never just your “pets” they are an incredibly special part of the family and whilst they are out with us, we will take great care to treat them as just that – special!
When you give us your trust to walk your dog or care for your other “pets” and place your family member in our care and supervision we understand how difficult and nerve racking this can be and that is why we at The Dog Walkers are committed to upholding a nationally recognized and rigorous code of practice for dog walkers and pet sitters. We want your dogs to be safe, happy, and exercised when they are out walking with us. We can walk them around your neighbourhood, but we prefer taking them to varied parks and trails in Trafford, South Manchester or SK postcodes giving them the opportunity to experience and explore new and exciting places letting them have as much fun as possible. If your pup should get wet and grubby whilst out and about, we will gladly dry your furry friend down with your towel when we arrive back at your home.
We will only walk dogs 4 at a time per handler and offer single walks for the more nervous characters amongst us. We also use treats primarily for (bribery) dog training and reward purposes and to keep them happy.
We supply dog leads, bags and dispose of all waste too.
The Dog Walkers can guarantee that we will become your pup’s 2nd best friend (next to you of course) and we will do our level best to reassure you that they are having a great time when they are out with us - as they say the proofs in the pudding, and we expect the boys and girls to always be excited for our arrival and THEIR walk. It would be our pleasure to send you photographs and vids of them enjoying their time with The Dog Walkers.

“Vivienne and Darren have been walking our little dog Betty since we moved to handforth and I couldn’t recommend them enough! They came to meet Betty first and we discussed what days are best etc and we decided on the morning puppy walk which she loved! We got videos and pictures after every walk and nee she was having the best time and being looking after. Can’t thank them enough for putting my mind at ease while I’m working!”
