Dogs R Ruff was created as I have a great love for dogs and always wanted to start my own Dog Walking/Pet Services business. I love dog walking and being outdoors, I have two dogs one ball crazy Springer Spaniel called Barney and the other is a Collie/Whippet Cross which I rescued around 7 years ago called Ruby. I also have two cats, Fudge and Smudge along with tropical fish.
After being in the Police Service for just over 13 years, I took the opportunity of putting in for early retirement to fulfil a dream of spending more time with my dogs and sharing my experience and love of walking dogs with others by providing a reliable and friendly service to those who cannot take their dogs out for one reason or another no matter what the weather.
I have for long as I can remember taken care of animals looking after small furry ones likes rabbits, guinea pigs, gerbals and mice for friends while they went on holiday with peace of mind they will be well looked after. I have always been one for rescuing various animals from baby pigeons lying in the middle of the road to baby foxes lost from their mother. Most recently two stray cats which Wallington Animal Rescue have now taken them on and rehomed them which gives me great satisfaction in playing a part in this.
I am trustworthy along with my background of being in the Police Service I have looked after house keys while owners are away as they can rest at ease knowing their pets will be well looked after along with keeping an eye on their property.
I also hold a CRB certificate and Public Liability Pet insured with Protectivity Insurers.
I am first aid trained as well member of NarpsUK (National Association of Registered Pet Sitters and Dog Walkers.
