Richie is the best dog walker one could wish for.
Reliable, trustworthy, friendly, animal lover and dog walker extraordinaire.
During the time we lived in Boston Spa he walked Milo without fail come rain, shine, snow or hail. I honestly don't recall him missing a single day.
Milo loves him to bits and we miss him now that we've moved. I wonder how we can tempt him to move down South?
From my perspective, Richie's flexiably is very helpful and he makes time to walk Olive even at the shortest notice, he has an excellent relationship with our dog and, to my knowledge has always been extremely kind towards her.

To further my understanding of our canine companions I have recently completed a dog behaviour and training course.
I have lived in Ilkley, with my partner John, for eight years. We live in a quiet cul-de-sac where we can offer a calm, comfortable and caring home environment, only a couple of minutes walk from Ilkley moor.
