About Us

Meet Our Team



Founder & Owner


After deciding it was time to do what I really love, being outside and working with animals, I set up doggedly Walking & Training Services. I was very lucky to grow up on a smallholding with horses, cows, goats, sheep, poultry and of course cats and dogs. My experiences have given me the skills and confidence to deal with almost anything that animals can do.

Professional Skills

To complement my years of practical experience I am committed to keeping my knowledge and skills up to date with the latest training. However, I never forget the most important lesson in life, you never know everything and that everyday is a learning opportunity.

Our Resident Dogs

Nell and Floss are Border collies are a delight to have around and love to come out with me on walks or play in our fields.

The services we offer mean that sometimes they join me on my ‘doggedly’ walks acting as a calming influence to younger dogs.  

Maisie is our new addition, a Clumber spaniel x Border collie.
