I can walk your dog(s) individually or in one of my groups of fabulous dogs.
Home visits to check up on your pooch for some love, fussing and brief walk.
Your precious dog will stay with me at my home whilst you're away.
Juggling your time between work, your kids, down time and the dog can be a challenge. After all, your pooch is part of the family but often the demands of everyday life can sometimes leave little time for their exercise.
Using the services of a professional dog walker can alleviate a lot of the pressures. And, let's face it, some of us suffer from the 'guilt' of leaving them at home all day. I know, I've been there.
My name is Christine Bantleman, and I've been a professional dog walker since 2008.
Type into Google 'dog walker near me' and you'll get dozens pop up on the search results. The difference is whether it's just a 'hobby' to make the extra cash, or the person you're thinking of entrusting your dog to runs it as the prime source of their income. I take my dog walking business very seriously.

CERTIFIED PET FIRST AIDER
I am a NSA Certified animal first aider.
I grew up in an animal loving environment where we always had a dog and other animals in the house, including, rabbits, guinea pigs and birds. It taught me responsibility and I developed a passion for animals at a very young age, which included horses.
I was lucky enough to own my own horse when I was 11. I would care for all my animals daily before and after school (most waking hours!). When I finished school I worked initially in a local bakers as a confectioner, and with its early finishing was ideal for me to still be able to look after my horse daily.
Later, I had a 19 year career working shifts for a large Heathrow based company. The shifts provided the flexibility for me to look after my children and pets.
But my first love was looking after animals and in 2008 I decided I wanted to work with animals full time. I left full time employment to start my pet care business, and I've never looked back.
I simply adore animals and love what I do.

Chris has been looking after Howie, my Jack Russell since he was just a few months old. He doesn’t like many people but he absolutely loves her and her family! Whenever he is boarding with her, I never worry about him and I know he is treated like one of the family. She is also flexible and always tries to accommodate any last minute requests.
All you want as a dog owner is to be able to leave your dog with someone that you trust, and loves your pet almost as much as you do- that is Chris 100%. I am so happy that we found her.
Our dog Elmo has been in Chris's care for about two years. He can be quite picky about who he trusts but Chris is his favourite person in the world and he absolutely adores her. He rushes out of the front door to see her in the mornings barely able to contain his excitement and he comes back really well exercised and snoozes through a lot of the rest of the afternoon.
I don't know what we would do without her because she takes such great care of all of her dogs and gives him a really happy life. I would 100% recommend her and give her all the stars that are available 😊

Chrissy is not just brilliant with my dog, she's a lovely person as well, inside and out. If ever there was a person that fits into the 'Be Kind' bracket, it would be Chrissy. There's nothing she wouldn't do to help out and my pooch absolutely adores her. (I think sometimes he loves her more than me ).
She's also carrying a wealth of experience when it comes to dogs and I've leaned on her wisdom quite a few times. Have no hesitation in recommending her services.
