Woodland Walkies was inspired by our rescued and adored black Labrador, BRUCE.
Woodland Walkies Pet Care Services was started in 2014 by Kirstie Ann due to her experience of not being able to travel and leave her Labrador Bruce.
Kirstie said I wanted to have a holiday but found I couldnt bring myself to leave him in a cold caged kennel with very little interaction from human beings and other dogs, and only having 20 minutes exercise per day. I decided that if I felt this way, other dog owners who felt the same would welcome a service that gave their pets the same comforts that they were used to at home. After all, its the pets holiday as well!
I then trained in professional dog handling and behavior, completed my K9 first aid training, and subsequently created my own business with the high standard of care and first class loving service that I would expect, These are standards that I have maintained throughout the time the company has been in existence and they will continue to be the foundation of everything we do as the business grows.
All staff are fully insured, experienced dog handlers and understand the behavior of dogs, with years of experience in caring for animals.
From the early days of just home boarding just a few dogs in Penarth, Woodland-Walkies now offer services including Dog Boarding, Walking, Pet Sitting, Doggy Day Care, Puppy Visits and Vet Visits across a number of areas in South Wales including, Penarth, Dinas Powys, Sully, Cowbridge, Cardiff North and Newport.
It can offer one on one walking, group walking and home boarding for just a night, up to a month and beyond.
In addition, Woodland-Walkies now have a small fleet of vans to pick your pet up in safety and have a team of staff who are consummate dog lovers, who really enjoy looking after the pets that come into our care, being a dog lover is one of the pre-requisites of working for us.
As we continue to grow, you can be assured that the original ethos of the business, of caring for your pet to the highest standard possible, will be the motivation for every member of staff in their daily work.
