We got in touch with Chesterfield Dog Walking when I was relocated with work and unable to come home to visit our dog Maggie during the day. They provide a reliable and flexible service and usually walk Maggie twice a week, Maggie loves the walks and it gives her the chance to socialize with other dogs which she loves. While Maggie is in the care of Chesterfield Dog Walking, I knew she was in safe hands. I would recommend Chesterfield Dog Walking to any dog owner.

When we were moving to Chesterfield my only worry was leaving my dog walker as my Labradoodle Norma had got on very well with our previous one and we were sad to be leaving her as leaving your baby (dog) with someone is a big deal. I looked through the internet to try and find a suitable dog walker, one that walked groups of dogs together and off the lead as these are the two factors that were important to us. Eventually I found David's website and read that he may be the perfect dog walker for us. We met with David and myself, husband and more importantly Norma felt instantly comfortable with him and I knew my worries were over. David is a lovely guy who obviously loves dogs and therefore I feel fully confident leaving Norma in his care. When we return home Norma is always tired, which is an excellent sign that she has been exercised well and has had lots of fun. David is VERY reliable and has also provided us with walks on short notice due to my rota changing, which is very much appreciated. We are extremely happy with the service provided by David and would definitely recommend him to others!!
Kate, Aylwin and Norma.

David has been walking my dog Missy twice a week for the last 18 months. She is a lively Irish Red and White Setter. 
I first engaged Davids help to walk Missy when I was giving up on pavement walking with her as she pulled and misbehaved on the lead with me. With David she walked obediently on a slack lead, held back to let him exit the building first and behaved as any well trained dog should.
Other than obedience classes , yes I  went to them and she did pass her silver good citizens scheme, she did not have contact with other dogs. When she was 1 year old she had a bad scare with a pack of dogs and was then wary of other dogs especially when in a group/pack. Walking with David he introduced her to walking with other dogs, slowly increasing the number as she grew accustomed to them. She now quite happily walks with any group of dogs he takes her out with.
David is completely trustworthy, If I am going to be out when he returns from Missy's walk I give him a key to let Missy in and he ensures she is safe, dry if wet, and has water.
I can fully recommend him.

"Hi Dave
I just want to say thank you for your service over the last 8/9 months, it's given us great peace of mind to know Teddy was being walked while we were at work.
I would highly recommend Chesterfield Dog Walking to anyone with dogs or other animals that want to be reassured their baby will be cared for while they are not there.
As Ted was walked from a young age I think the socialising and new experiences helped him become the confident and friendly dog he is now.
Thank you so very much, we wish you all the best.

"I 'interviewed' 3 other dog walking service providers before meeting David just over a year ago. As soon as he came to the house I knew that he was someone that I could trust to look after my dog. David is a dog person, he is calm, knowledgeable, honest and reliable. Even at very short notice (the same morning) he will fetch Wilfred at the drop of a hat! The pack walking is extremely valuable and as anyone who knows about canine care will tell you, socialising is vital, and really good fun for your dog. David understands this and incorporates it into the training that he provides every time he walks them. Apart from my husband and my dad, David is THE ONLY other person whom I trust to leave Wilfred with. I would recommend him to anyone who truly cares about their dog. Thanks David, Jo & Wilf (feb 2013)"

"Thank you for all your hard work with splodge and Thor, they loved going out on walks with you and you really helped me massively with them while Ben was ill. I will be recommending you to all my friends with dogs that do not have the time to walk them and if for any reason Thor and splodge do not end up leaving I will be straight back in contact to set the walking back up. Really worth every penny, made my doggies very happy. A BIG BIG THANK YOU from me! X"

"Hi Dave,
Just wanted to drop by to say a few words of thanks for the recent work you've been doing with the dogs. Pippa and Benji have definitely settled into the new home much quicker with having your regular influence. I can tell you are doing good training/obedience work with them alongside walking them - above and beyond the service asked, and it makes a huge difference. I appreciate what a challenge they are as a pair due to their rescue centre background but your expertise really shows! To say they are difficult is an understatement but I never worry about leaving them in your care and that's invaluable to have that confidence.

I also want to thank you for your absolute flexibility - helping me out every single time (often at last minute) and never once letting me down. I would thoroughly recommend your services to anyone looking for pet care (now I know you do chickens too!)

Many thanks and keep up the good work :) I know the dogs would thank you too if they could.

Kind regards,

"I'm sure as anyone would know its always scary and a worry letting a stranger into your house while your not there and looking after your babies, but Dave really does put you at ease when he texts updates of the day, Dave's been dog sitting for a few months now and the dogs really do love him, he's got the puppy loving walks which i thought was going to be a task as he hates cold and puddles but he soon took to it (still avoiding puddles and now wears a jumper), he manages to walk all 3 dogs together now which is a relief and better as he can take them all for a run together :)
I'm so pleased with Dave and I would definitely recommend him to anyone with any type, size or breed of pet as I have a 5 year old male Rottweiler, a 2 year old male Rottweiler and a 4 month old male American bulldog X shar pei (that was only a few weeks old when Dave 1st started) so I live in a madhouse and Dave gets on so well with them.
I will definitely be staying with Dave now as its not easy to find someone you can trust with your house and babies and I work long hours and its such a relief to know the boys are being looked after while we are at work,
Thanks Uncle Dave, Love Diesel, Finley, Ralphy (Emma & Tom)

" An excellent and very professional service. David has done a wonderful job looking after our 2 dogs Pippa and Demi for the 2 weeks we were away. The dogs were healthy and happy when we returned. They were fed and watered daily.
We will be using David's service again, and have no hesitation in recommending him to our friends, and anybody with pets and need them to be looked after.
 Thanks David
 Pippa & Demi, Sue & Ian "
