About Ric

Hi, I'm Ric and I have always loved dogs.
I spent years progressing a lucrative but unfulfilling career in finance and have decided that I'd rather have a job with a sence of purpose and joy that I can look forward to doing.

I've decided to leave the office job behind and go for an adventure.
I've handled all kinds of dogs and am adept at reading their moods and expressions.
I've made a point of befriending every dog I can, which has given me experience with fearful and "aggressive" dogs as well as learning about treat, praise and toy motived dogs.
I have 2 dogs of my own and we know all the great walking spots in the local area.
I'm a fairly big guy so no dog is to much and can pick up and drop off dogs that dont live near a nice walk.

My regular walking spots include several parks, a couple of forsted trails and the nature reserve by the quarry. Occasionally I take dogs around town or one of the nearby villages as I think it's important dogs see a variety of places. Walks are as much for their minds as for their bodies. Walk length can be tailored to the dog depending on how athletic they are with the standard being an hour. Dogs will be dried off afterwards and left comfortable.

If instead you just need someone to pop in and play with your dog for a while, feed them and make sure they have some clean water then I can do that too.

I'm new to the profesional side of dog walking but experienced with walking, handling and loving dogs. I hope to meet your dogs soon.

Dog Walking

I’d like to recommend Ric as a responsible, caring, and reliable dog walker who will adapt to what you and your dog require for walks. He has taken my Staffy boy, Denzel out twice for hour long walks and, as it was the week after surgery and stitches, he was careful that dog meetings did not happen that might have been an issue. Handily, Ric comes prepared with treats and a water bottle should your dog get thirsty, and he is happy to take your dog further afield in his car should you wish your dog enjoy a walk in a forest or park a bit further away from where they might usually get to go. Denzel warmed to Ric quite easily and was quite comfortable trotting up the road with him on their outings, so I have no hesitation in recommending him as a great walker for your dog too!
