Hi, I'm Vikki Barr and I've lived in Rushden since 2004. I love dogs, any shape, size or breed. Since 2007, I've worked on a voluntary basis for an internationally recognised Assistance Dog Organisation as a puppy walker. This involves me teaching puppies basic commands, socialisation skills, lead behaviour, carrying out regular health checks, reporting and recording any abnormalities or incidents and generally promoting good all round behaviour.
Prior to this, I worked for many years in the security industry and since 2010 until recently, I was a carer visiting clients in their own homes and tending to their needs. I am honest, trustworthy, reliable and can be flexible.
I cover mainly the Rushden, Northamptonshire (NN10) U.K. area and surrounding 3-4 mile radius. I live near a lovely country park which I take my own dogs to frequently. I have walked dogs for friends and neighbours and attended to feeding and comfort breaks.
I will complete your dog's own care plan prior to any walking or other activities so as to ensure your confidence and happiness.
“With Vikki's vast experience with known Assistance Dog Organisation, she has the patience, knowledge and capability of looking after all types of dogs. My young pup Benson is often cared for by Vikki as i need to travel or spend time away from home due to work. He is well loved and looked after in a very friendly, caring, yet professional manner. I would recommend Vikki to anyone looking for a reliable, trustworthy, caring person to leave their dog with or book for walking services. Great training abilities. Absolutely excellent.”

“Vikki has proven to be a valuable part of our dogs lives! She really takes care of them as if they were her own. I am very protective with my dogs but have absolutely no worries at all with handing them over to Vikki to take them for a walk. They gladly wag their tales and leave on their leads without so much as a look back at me! Thank you Vikki for providing such a fantastic service!”
“I have known vicki for a long time and there isnt anyone else i would trust to look after our dog, beau . Both vicki and her family treat beau as if she were their pooch. In fact beau is very happy to stay and doesnt always want to come home. its good to know, when we are away for one day or a week, beau is very well cared for.”
- Nicola Mills
“We can vouch for Vikki's excellent canine care as our dog benefits from her nurturing nature on a regular basis. Vikki is a warm, receptive, happy individual who genuinely cares for each and every one of her canine clients. Nothing is too much trouble and every dog is treated as if it were her own. They couldn't be better looked after and they always come back better behaved !! Thank you for all your help Vikki, we'd be lost without you !!”
