Woodland Walkies was inspired by our rescued and adored black Labrador, BRUCE.
Woodland – Walkies Pet Care Services based in Penarth opened in 2014 after we rescued our adored black labrador “Bruce” from Cardiff Dogs home.
Due to our own family experience of not being able to travel and feel completely comfortable leaving our special boy, we opened our doggie day and home boarding service shortly after we started the dog walking side of the business.
“ We wanted to have a holiday but found our family couldn’t bring ourselves to leave him with just anyone. We decided that if we felt this way, other dog owners who felt the same would welcome a professional service that gave their pets the same comforts that they were used to at home. After all, it’s the pet’s holiday as well!
We created our own business with the high standard of care and first class loving service that we would expect, These are standards that 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 behaviour of dogs, with years of experience in caring for animals.
From the early days of just dog walking just a few dogs in Penarth, Woodland-Walkies now offer services including Dog Boarding, Dog Walking, Pet Sitting, Doggy Day Care, Puppy Visits and Vet Visits in Penarth. We have had some fantastic people work with us over the years, thank you for all your help and support in making Woodland Walkies a business that our community can trust.
We 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.
