Lakeland Trails, Wagging Tails!


Hi, thanks for taking the time to visit Ambleside Dog Walker. We are a family run dog care business based in the heart of the Lake District, offering a comprehensive range of dog care and home boarding services for both local and visiting dogs.  We are fully insured, DBS checked and pet 1st aid trained and we are licensed with South Lakeland District Council with a 5* rating for day care and dog boarding services in our home. 

We’re an experienced husband and wife team who have both owned and loved dogs throughout our lives and are continually amazed by how much having a dog in the family can add to our lives! Unfortunately, we can't be with our furry friends all the time and it can often be hard to find someone you trust to care for them in your absence.  Having used dog walkers in the past to look after Jasper, we know just how important it is for you to feel that the person you are leaving a member of your family with loves dogs as much as you do; and that they have the knowledge, experience and skills to care for them as you would.   

At Ambleside Dog Walker your dog's welfare is our top priority. You can leave your dog with us, safe in the knowledge that they will be enjoying exercise, stimulation, play and the opportunity to socialise with canine pals. We enjoy exploring the fells, lakes and woodland in our stunning local area and we always tailor walks to the individual needs of the dogs in our care. Please do get in touch to discuss your individual requirements and book an initial consultation. We look forward to getting to know you and your dog.
