Sophie (Owner, currently on MATERNITY LEAVE)
Hi there, I'm Sophie.
I am a fully insured, canine first aid qualified and experienced local dog walker in Thame and most importantly, I am a huge dog lover!
I grew up on a farm near Thame and have been surrounded by animals my whole life, there's always been at least 2 dogs in my family since the day I was born. I've recently become an owner of a gorgeous Golden Retriever called Casper, who you may see popping up on our instagram posts now and then! Through growing up with dogs, I've learnt that dogs are not only fantastic pets but also our best friends who need so much love and attention. I'm sure when choosing a dog walker/sitter, your primary focus is not only to find someone caring and reliable, but to also make sure your dog is 100% happy.
I'm currently on maternity leave but have the help of the amazing Claire and Jade who are able to offer 2 - 3 group walks per day at around 60-90 minutes per walk. Their aim is to make sure every dog is having the most enjoyable walk they possibly can, and they do this by consistently monitoring the dynamics of the group walk. All dogs enrolled with us will have undergone a thorough vetting and trial period, to ensure that they, the girls and other dogs will be happy. Happy dog, happy dog walkers! I still handle all behind the scenes stuff such as admin, enquiries and deal with invoicing.
Claire (Dog Walker & Lover)
Hi there, I'm Claire.
I'm excited to have joined Trekking Tails as dogs and pets are a huge passion of mine. I've always had pets of some sort, from dogs to rabbits, gerbils to horses and I had horses for over 25 years where I successfully competed at a National level.
I absolutely adore all dogs, but I have a particular passion for Spaniels (I own 4 at the moment along with my Labrador)! I love working them and training them in general along with the gundog reward based training techniques.
I live in Moreton, and very lucky to be surrounded by beautiful countryside for walking dogs both on and off the lead. I do also love exploring new walks and adventures whenever possible.
I can offer private or group dog walking for any breed of dog and any age (from 8+months) as well as pet pop-ins to the Thame and surrounding areas.
I'm fully insured, CRB checked and hold a canine first aid certificate. I'm also working towards a Dog Care OFQUAL and Canine Behaviour course. I also drive my own van like Sophie's, where I can transport dogs safely.
Feel free to contact Trekking Tails so we can discuss how I might be able to help you!
