Testimonials


From Adam and Sophy 
Tony has walked our Cocker Spaniel for over 3 years and has always been friendly, professional and reliable. Our dog loves going out on the group walks (whatever the weather!) and he always comes back happy and tired. Tony has looked after him over the weekend for us when we are away and he treats him like part of the family. I would highly recommend Alwoodley Professional Dog Walking Service to anyone looking for a dog walker.
 
From Rob and Philippa:
We found Alwoodley Professional Dog Walking Service on the internet when looking for a dog walker for our young lively cocker spaniel who loves long walks. Tony first started walking Stirling when he was still a puppy. They bonded immediately as Tony is so friendly. The services that Tony offers are super reliable and very flexible. He comes rain or shine with a smile. He really is Stirling's "best friend" and when Stirling sees him he never barks and goes straight to him without looking back and with a waggy tail. We don't know what we would do without him and would highly recommend him to anyone. 
 
From Peter:
Tony has been walking our Springer Jasper for the past 3 years. Jasper is a very nervous dog as he was mistreated before we got him. We could tell instantly when we met Tony that Jasper would be fine. Tony has worked with dogs a long time and his quiet confidence immediately put us at ease. Tony spent time coming for short visits to get to know jasper before he took him out. Jasper now goes on group walks with Tony and we can tell he really looks forward to it every day. Jasper is a very happy dog and a lot of credit has to go to Tony for that. We would recommend Tony to anyone who has a dog they love!
        
From Annie:
Tony has been walking my 2 dogs most weekdays for several years and I feel lucky to have found him. He is absolutely trust worthy and reliable and they get a really good run when he takes them out. Most of all he really cares about Mr Harry and Lottie and needless to say, they adore him too. I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Tony and Man's Best Friend.
 
From Tracy & Karina:

Our dog Oskar is our boy and we love him to bits, and in return he loves us. As you can imagine with this mutual attachment we were a little anxious of giving him over to a dog walker everyday whilst we were at work. I began the search for a dog walker on line and eventually came across a website that I liked the look of and also I liked the fact that the owner/walker Tony had worked for many years in a profession taking care of dogs. His page came across as genuine and friendly, and clearly he new a thing or two about DOGS!  Tony came around one evening to ‘interview’ us and Oskar to see how he would interact with him and if he would be able to walk him, I was comforted by this as it showed Tony really thought about each dog before he agreed to take them on. Tony has been walking Oskar 5 days a week for the over 6 years and Oskar has grown very attached to him, he sits looking out of the window waiting for him to arrive.  Tony is super reliable and when he has anytime off lets you know in good enough time so you can organize an alternative. When we go away on holiday, Oskar boards with Tony and his family and we can happily enjoy our trip knowing that Oskar will be well taken care off. I would highly recommend Tony’s services to anyone, you know your dog will get a good walk every time they are out with him, will be safe and treated well.

 

From Lynne and Mario

Thank you Tony for looking after Aston so well. He really looks forward to his walks with you; he waits at the door everyday - even when you are not due. We fully appreciate your reliability and keeping us informed how Aston gets on each day and you make sure he has a full hours walk. Most of all, we see how  much you care for the dogs you have under your stewardship and go above and beyond what is normally expected of a dog walker. 


From Viki:

I first contacted Tony regarding looking after my ageing greyhound Wil. He spent time getting to know him, and Wil trusted him to take him out until he couldn't anymore. Tony was still there for him to the end. A few months later I gained a slightly crazy rescue cross whippet. She adores her group walks, and I know that I can go to work and that she will be well looked after. Tony is reliable and clearly loves what he does.

 

From Katie:

Definitely recommended. Tony the owner is completely reliable and trustworthy. My dog Huey loves going out for long walks with Tony, great care is taken for him and it is piece of mind knowing that when my partner and I get home after a long day he will have been given the exercise he needs and is tired and content. As an ex dog warden Tony really knows how to interact with dogs in a kind and gentle manner and also shares the same values as we do for being considerate in picking up the dogs mess. Tony is very flexible and will always try to cater for your needs for example if you need to make arrangements at short notice

 

From Emma:

Tony is reliable, trustworthy and flexible with providing his dog walking service for our Greyhound Tommy. He communicates with us each time he walks our dog and never has a problem with fitting in extra walks on request. We leave the house in the morning knowing that our dog will be walked by Tony at a regular time in the day and Tony ensures that our dog has done all his ‘business’ before returning back home. Tony has a wealth of experience of dog handling and this reflects in his kindness and consideration he shows towards our dog. We would recommend Tony to everyone.

 

From Helen:

I cannot talk more highly of Alwoodley Professional Dog Walking Service than to say Eaddie, my dog loved Tony. They became best friends over the 3 years they walked together rain or shine. Tony understood when I called needing an extra unscheduled walk, or very short notice overnight boarding! An excellent service by someone who knows dogs!
