We have had our lab puppy walking with Ross for 2 months now, and the experience has been great. Having spent so much time with her through lockdown we were worried about how she may interact but Ross constantly kept us up to date with photos and videos in the first couple of weeks to ease our minds.
Ross also helps with any training needs and always answers any questions we have in great detail. It really is reassuring to know how much Poppy enjoys being on the walks.
Rupert has been going on walks twice a week from August. We were initially worried that during lockdown he wouldn’t be able to develop the skills he needs but thanks to Ross and the dog walks he certainly now has. Ross has been reliable and you can see how much he cares about all the dogs. He always posts videos of Rupert from every walk which we look forward to and can see he is having so much fun. He has also been really helpful in organizing a last minute walk at the weekend when needed which Tina, who again sent us lovely photos or Rupert having fun.
Ross is also happy to always have a chat and provide any advice which is always really helpful and great.
Ross has been with our Lucy since the start of June. During this time, he has been so accommodating in making sure Lucy has been on the walks we needed but also didn't give up when she hasn't settled. She is currently getting some small group walks with Tina twice a week as well as seeing the rest of the doggos on other days. He has also accommodated a trip to the groomers too.
We are extremely grateful for the service he offers and Lucy is too!
I can not tell you how great Ross, Claire and Tina are. We got our dog Edie in August and had no experience of dogs at all. Ross has been so helpful.
From my first phone call he was so kind and helped me to see we can do it. Tina was fantastic on Edie’s puppy visits and Claire is amazing. She is so kind and keeps me constantly updated with fab pictures and messages. I have recommended them to a few friends and will continue to do so.
A massive thanks to them all for everything. Edie’s care is one thing I don’t have to think about because I know it will be excellent!!
Ross has been walking Buddy for a year and a half now and we believe that he goes above and beyond in so many ways. He spent a lot of time getting to know Buddy before he even went out with him so that he felt at ease early doors. He then played an influential part in his training from the off and made him one of the pack meaning that with other dogs he is very outgoing but also respectful, even when out with us on a weekend. We couldn’t believe it when he got a Christmas present and the time and effort Ross put in to make us a calendar with pictures of him as he grew up was a lovely touch.
Buddy goes through toys like no one’s business and Ross always make sure that he is fully stocked, buying him extra ones or giving us some of Bosco’s old ones. During the time Ross has known Buddy he has gone above and beyond with recommendations for training and food and even once spent 20 minutes on hold with the vets trying to get him in for us when he was poorly and while we took him ourselves in the end he offered to take him for us. He would even go in on a night and feed him if need be if we both get caught in late meetings.
Ross is so passionate about what he does that he even wants to spend time with Buddy on a weekend organising beach walks, which from here is at least a 90 minute drive away. It is Buddy’s favourite thing and he always comes back clean and shattered! He is up to date with what is going in in the community and keeps us informed of any unusual activity on the area and his Facebook group is brilliant allowing us to keep up to date with Buddy’s activities during the day. The thing with Ross is that first and foremost dogs are his passion, it isn’t a job that has become a passion more a passion that has become a job. Buddy loves him and he’s one of the pack and is a much happier dog because of Ross and his team.
I wish I was a puppy! Our puppy has the best days when she gets picked up by Claire or Christina from Man’s Best Friend. It is so reassuring to know she’s getting lots of exercise, playing with puppy friends and being cared for by such kind people. Ross was extremely helpful when I first called, and if we ever need to change our days or have an extra day added, he is very accommodating. Thank you for welcoming Maggie in to puppy club, we are so glad we found you! X
Ross has been walking Ted for 6 weeks now and it’s clear Ted loves his walks! Ross has been great from the start in helping us settle Ted in at home and is always on hand to offer welcome hints and tips on how we can introduce Ted to new things and increase his confidence.
It’s clear that Ross cares a lot about his doggy clients and it’s reassuring to know our pup is in very safe hands. We love the photo and video updates and look forward to watching these when at work so we can see what our pup has been up to without us!
Ross has been very accommodating with us from the start, even starting Ted off with his first walks whilst on holiday and helping us out when we need extra walks last minute!
We would have no reservations in recommending Ross!
Ross has been walking Willow for almost a year now. She started with puppy visits and then moved on to the walks when she was old enough. From day one Ross has kept us informed with how she's getting on and provided input and helpful training tips. He doesnt just walk the dogs but is also invested in their development. Ross lets us know when Willow's had a naughty day so we know what to continue working on with her training wise which is really heplful, especially when raising a dog from being a puppy! Ross' communication is excellent, both the videos of the walks that he uploads and any necessary extra communications. He's professional, flexible, hugely reliable and the love he has for all of the dogs he walks is very clear. Claire is also fabulous with Willow and treats her like her own! Willow's known Ross and Claire for most of her life and it's obvious from her reaction to both of them that she loves spending time with them.
I would definitely recommend Mans Best Friend. I was very impressed with how Tina and Ross took the time to talk to us and get to know the dogs before their first walk.
It’s been great to find someone who can handle my two boisterous staffys and all their funny little quirks! They always run to the door with excitement, as soon as they hear Tina pull and come back very tired doggos!
Ross is a very reliable and trustworthy dog walker who offers great value too. He looks after our family dog Pepper as if she were his own as well as keeping us in the loop at all times. Pepper is always happy to see him, she has one group walk daily and is always well worn out afterwards. When you employ a dog walker you have to trust them with your dog as well as giving them access to your house everyday so you need to find someone who puts professionalism as high up as their love of animals and Ross has both qualities in spades
Ross certainly is top dog in respect of dog walking and our dog Jessie loves him & her walks with him & the rest of the gang. Ross is friendly, reliable & trustworthy with the added bonus that comes in the form of his wonderful dog Bosco.
We would highly recommend Ross
Issachar my beloved cockapoo dog has been going for great walks with Ross and Bosco for a month now.... in this time by getting the fantastic and reassuring videos and photos of her fun and wonderful walks I can see Issachar coming out of her shell from being a little aloof to becoming much more confident. She is socialising with all sorts of dogs including the cute puppy’s ! I’m so happy that my dog is being well exercised on interesting and stunning country walks and above all clearly looked after , well cared for and having fun .... Claire is of the same high standard as Ross .... and I will and do highly recommend to anyone who wants this top quality dog walking service..... many thanks guys ... Very happy
