About Abbey

My name is Abbey and dog walking/sitting is my full time job, so you can be safe in the knowledge that I have good experience with a variety of different pooches. I’m based in Bishops Cleeve but cover the cheltenham area also! I use a fully air conditioned dog walking van fitted with secure and comfortable crates.

I have a full DBS check after working in the Criminal Justice Service and fully insured.

My qualifications include canine first aid, canine CPR, fully qualified dog groomer, dog agility for a number of years, dog behaviourist courses and rescue dog care. I am always wanting to learn and broaden my knowledge and you’ll regularly find me on courses that allow me to do that!

I have cared for a number of elderly dogs up to the age of 17 and am well versed in giving medication as my own dog has bowel disease. Nothing brings me more joy than making older dogs comfortable and giving them the best care and respect they deserve whilst their owners are away without having to worry if they’ve had their medication.

On the other end of the spectrum, I’ve dealt with many puppies in my years working with animals and adore watching them come into their own little personalities. I understand how the formative months make such a huge difference to a dogs life so teaching them fun ways to learn and puzzle solve is extremely rewarding.
