About Me/ Company

Hello, my name is Ailsa Hunter and I am an ex-college lecturer who loves working in the outdoors walking dogs. I have a chocolate Labrador called Rufus and a variety of tropical fish. It has always been my ambition to have a job working with animals which is why I decided to start up my own business, dog walking and looking after all types of pets.I understand the special relationship an owner has with their pet therefore I treat each pet that I look after as I would my own. I have been running my business since September 2011 and I live in Boulmer in Northumberland which is 2 minutes walk from the beach and I also have a decent size back garden for dogs to run around in which is completely secure.
So if you want to feel safe and secure knowing that your pet is loved and looked after while you are on holiday or at work call me now- Ailsa Hunter on 07811 682474
