We met a number of dog walkers in our search. As soon as we met Kevin we knew we didn’t need to look any further. Professional, reliable, courteous and Monty loves going for his walks. Highly recommended.
I am very pleased how the Dog walker Wimbledon team has been taken care of my dog Filou. Everyone is really flexible and accommodating and even stepped in to help when Filou was still recovering from his surgery. Now he enjoys his walks and playtime with his doggy pals. He also gets rid of some of his limitless energy and is able to do some of his beloved exploring in the park. Its good to know that he is in good hands and looked after by kind and knowledgable people while I am away. I am really pleased with the service and would recommend to anyone requiring a dog walker.
When your dog is happy and loved, your life is complete. We’ve spent ages trying to find the right fit and Ben, Kevin and Connor are perfect. Highly recommend them.
Kevin and the team have been walking and giving daycare to our Bobbin for 5 months now. Bobbin is now confident and very social with other dogs. She is calm and happy. We are very happy and thankful for The dog walker Wimbledon for taking care of Bobbin. I would recommend their services to anyone.
Ben, Kevin and the team of The Dog Walker Wimbledon have been walking our puppy Marley for a few months now, and the service he offers could not be better. It is genuinely excellent. Calm, punctual, and warm, Kevin not only sets Marley at ease but also gives us great confidence that he is safe and sound in his care. Highly recommend!
The team have been walking our two miniature schnauzers, Kurt and Zadie for half a year now. It's been really great for them to burn off their excess energy and to take a bit of pressure off us now that we've had our first baby.
Kevin is awesome with the dogs and approaches their stubbornness with good humour and appreciates that they both have their own personalities. He's always happy to give us feedback on how our dogs are behaving and he's helped give us the confidence to let them off the lead more when we take them to the park.
We couldn't be happier or more grateful to the team.
I have two Cocker Spaniels, Mabel and Bertie (M&B). M&B had started getting quite reactive to other dogs and let's just say their recall wasn't perfect. I work full time and couldn't resolve the situation myself. I had had real difficulty in finding anyone who would take them, walk them regularly on their own and most importantly also work to train them and build up their confidence. Ben and Kevin had no hesitation whatsoever, they were knowledgeable, practical and listened calmly to my all my worries about my precious babies!! I immediately felt such a sense of relief and had confidence in them. They started walking M&B in September last year and have worked wonderfully with them, the transformation in my gorgeous dogs has been just been a joy. Kevin and Ben are so flexible, trustworthy, and my two love their walks with them. Most importantly they are much more relaxed happy dogs (as is their owner) and the recall is night and day! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend The Dog Walker Wimbledon to anyone.
As my lab London needs a lot of exercise, I got in touch with The dog walker wimbledon and I can say it has been a great decision. Kevin walks my dog from Monday to Thursday and my doggie absolutely loves it as he can go for a good walk with other dogs. They are very formal and they treat my dog as one of theirs own. It's very exiticing to see how happy is London when he gets to see Kevin every morning. I absolutely recommend The Dog Walker Wimbledon.
We couldn't be happier with the service Ben, Kevin and the team provide. The service they provide is excellent, door to door pick up and drop offs, a safe walking environment, and people who clearly love what they are doing. Our dog Skye loves his walks and is always exhausted when he gets home which is a good sign! The photos throughout the day are a nice touch so you can see what your beloved pooch has been up to! I can't recommend them enough!
Ben, Kevin and Karen have been amazing...starting off with visits and now with puppy walks as well. As a first time mum (I mean owner), knowing Sosuke, my pug puppy, is in good hands has made the transition back to work after my pugternity so much better! Sosuke is so excited when they turn up and my cats love the visits too! They have been really accommodating...nice and flexible. Glad I picked them to look after my little bundle of joy (and licks)!
Quite simply, if you need professional and caring dog walkers / dog boarding in the Wimbledon area, then Ben, Kevin and the team are just the best! Their number one priority is always for your dog, its' health and well-being and they are just thoroughly nice guys to know too. I wouldn't trust anyone more with our spaniel Toby; he's happiest most when on the common with Kevin and a gang of his doggy friends!
There is no greater endorsement for Kevin and Ben than how happy my dog is when he comes home from the dog walkers. He comes in with a big smile, zipping around the house full of energy. This says a lot because Flash is 13 years old, full of arthritis and prone to grumpiness. These guys are great with him and Flash is a very happy Doggy!
We are so pleased with the wonderful service Dog Walker Wimbledon have provided for us. The puppy visits and now walks on the Common have been so helpful to us and thoroughly enjoyed by Merlin too! Ben and Kevin are very reliable and easy to deal with. We love seeing all the Facebook photos of the dogs having fun together too!
Archie really loves his walks with Kevin and his doggie chums. We really appreciate the flexibility offered when work can mean last minute scheduling changes are needed - the guys manage to fit us in which is brilliant. It's great seeing pictures of him on Facebook out and about chasing balls and his friends. Thanks for being part of Archie's new life guys - he's settled in so well.
I have been a customer for many years and have always found Ben, Kevin and team to be very accommodating and professional. My two beagles love their walks. I'm not sure what I'd do without them!
Dog Walker Wimbledon is a real dog lover and completely understands the needs of the dogs and their owners. I can relax knowing that our Rocky is safe, happy and having a great time during the day when I can’t be there. Ben and Kevin are brilliant and I would highly recommend them to to anyone. Thank you!!!
Kevin, Ben and their walkers have been walking our energetic and slightly crazy dog for over a year now. She had recall issues with her previous dog walker (or two!) and as a result was being walked on lead for her lunchtime walks. Kevin and the team have snapped that out of her and we now how one tired dog following her lovely walks running all over the common. Thanks guys, couldn't be happier with the way you look after Molls.
Tinley loves being looked after by Kevin and Ben, and always returns happy & contented. Kevin v reliable & great at fitting Tinley in at the last minute. He also takes much better photos than we do!
Ben and Kevin have helped me care for Holly since she was a puppy. They are experienced, knowledgeable and trustworthy. They are genuine animal lovers and reliable. Thank you so much for continuing to provide an excellent service. From Sarah & Holly
Ben, Kevin and Karen take care of our dogs, Betty and Wanda. They are really well looked after and always come home happy. I was worried about leaving them at first, but the guys are reliable and friendly so I know they're in safe hands!
Finn has been looked after by Ben and Kevin for almost one year in their doggy daycare. Since starting there we have noticed a great improvement in his behaviour. He still has his silly moments but hey, he's a yellow lab-what do you expect! He loves Kevin and eagerly awaits his arrival for a walk. I would highly recommend.
We have recently moved into the area and working full-time our dog was a worry but Dog walker Wimbledon have been incredible and so supportive with our 'doggy care' needs and genuinely love ALL the dogs. Better than excellent!!!!!
We are very happy with Kevin and Ben looking after our furry babies Aida and Jade. Daytime and evening walks and house sittings have gone super smoothly. They have been very flexible and always aimed to work out a solution that would work for us - even on a tight schedule.
Aida and Jade go crazy for Ben and Kevin whenever they see them - that reaction is worth a thousand words 🙂
Alma has been walked by The Dog Walker Wimbledon for quite a few months now and we are so pleased with how it is going. The team are really flexible with our ever changing plans and Alma always seems relaxed and well exercised when we come back to her in the afternoon. We love the Facebook updates of her enjoying herself too! All in all we are really pleased with the service and would recommend to anyone requiring a dog walker. Thanks guys!
Ozzie loves his walks with Kevin and Patric and I am always confident that he gets a good walk and play with his friends when out for his weekly walks! I also appreciate the flexibility Dog Walker Wimbledon provide when I have a change in schedule, they always try to accommodate me when they can.
Ben and Kevin just want to Thank you both so much for looking after Theo., we heard about the awful rain/floods you had here last week , all of the dogs must have got covered in mud and soaking wet you must have bathed him as he looked good as new when he came back .! I must say he was so well behaved when he came back to us... he had a mad 5 mins when he saw us ,then went straight to his bed for the rest of the evening, (with his ball of course ) he must have had such a great time as he loves his walks, I think you actually managed to wear him out !!
I will definitely recommend and will certainly use The Dog Walker Wimbledon again ... Thanks again ..
Kevin, Ben and Karen have been walking our puppy Tommy for a few months now. Always reliable and very flexible when we need an extra help. We also love to see the photos on Facebook of Tommy having fun with his little friends.
Katy has had her first week of walks with Dog Walker Wimbledon. Huge thanks to Ben and especially Kevin who did a great job of looking after Katy. I was worried as she is a newly adopted rescue dog, we have only had her for 10 weeks, she is very bouncy and full of life. She had a great time chasing with the mini pack each day. It is so reassuring to have people who you can trust. I can highly recommend them and will, I'm sure be engaging their services in the future. Thanks again !!
Ben, Kevin and Patric have been looking after Baxter for about 5 months and I couldn't be happier with them. They are very responsible and very friendly, and post pictures of Bax and friends regularly, which makes me feel that my dog is in good hands.
Bax also is fit now as he exercises a lot more and also when he comes back he's so tired he always goes for a good nap.
I would definitely recommend The Dog Walker Wimbledon.
Patric, Ben and Kevin have been looking after our dog for two years with great care and patience. Carla is a rescue dog who had never been walked before and was very nervous of other dogs and travel. On her first day with another dog walker they brought her straight back, unable to cope with her! Luckily we found Wimbledon dog walkers and Patric soon had her enjoying her walks and she is now a happy, sociable dog. The team also look after her when we are on holiday and we would thoroughly recommend them. Pippa and Mark
We love the guys, Kevin and Ben, at Dog Walker Wimbledon because they are not only totally reliable they are also very flexible and friendly. They've adapted to Chip and Ruby's specific needs and done their utmost to accommodate our last minute requests (sorry!) for day care/boarding.
We are leaving Wimbledon and are so sorry to be losing their services. If you manage to get a slot with them grab it with both hands quickly.
Ben and Kevin looked after Jack, our one year old Jack Russell, for a year and a half. They had him for both day care and then would pick him up for walks when I had my daughter. I can not express my gratitude to them enough as they saved an exhausted first time mum on so many occasions! They are nothing but professional, kind, and trustworthy and I could not recommend them highly enough.
These guys have been walking my two dogs for several months now. I have two large hyperactive dogs, that are a complete handful. And yet, these guys are always so incredibly nice to them, it warms my heart. My dogs absolutely love them. They are always so excited when their friends come to pick them up for an outing.
The customer service is fantastic. Schedules easily coordinated by text. Willing to be flexible. These guys are amazing. Highly recommend.
Ben, Kevin and Patric have been great with our two Cavalier King Charles Spaniels since we moved from Australia just over two years ago. They have been very accommodating of Clifford who has a hard time getting around with his arthritis. We never worry when we go away as our boys always have a good time being house sat. Our shy boy Archie has even become social with some of the other dogs which is amazing.
'Crazy Daisy' absolutely loves her walks with Kevin, she gets so excited to see him. I am delighted with their service; extremely friendly and reliable. I have no doubt in recommending their services highly.
Our two Labradors Basil & Buddy thoroughly enjoy their time with Kevin and the rest of the crew. They have made new friends since we have moved here from the US last year and thoroughly enjoy getting to explore Wimbledon Common. Thank you for taking such good care of our dogs!
When we moved to Raynes Park our Scottish Terrier, Mac, had just lost his brother and would cry when we left him at home during the day. He now goes to doggy daycare and I'm so much happier knowing he's stimulated, exercised and looked after while we're at work.
Mac hasn't always been the most social/ friendly dog and he now has doggy friends that he's comfortable with, happy to see and he's even well enough behaved to not need his muzzle when walking.
Kevin and Ben you've been great, thanks so much for looking after our little boy!
Feb 2016 update
A few months after my original review I'm really proud to say that not only does Mac not need a muzzle when walking - he no longer needs a lead! If you'd told me 2 years ago it would be possible to walk Mac without his lead and muzzle, I would have argued (sadly) that it would never be possible. Thanks to Kevin & Ben's patience, care and positive influence we have a happy dog, who loves his new found freedom and friends!
Thanks so much Kevin and Ben - for looking after Josie so well. She had an unplanned operation on her leg just two days before we went away on holiday for 3 weeks but you took that in your stride and went the extra mile to help us. It can't have been easy with Josie on limited walking and then getting an infection in her wound. I'd highly recommend you both to others looking for a dog walker or someone to look after their dog whilst on holiday. It was lovely to see Josie say goodbye to Kevin and Ben - obviously got a lot of love and affection in our absence!
Kevin has looked after my two dogs Patsy and Fergus on and off for the last six years!
They love being with him and are always well socialised and exercised and if need be well fed too!
Always willing to try and accommodate and I couldn't recommend him highly enough:)
Great company providing excellent services with a lovely, caring and knowledgeable approach. The best. Highly recommended. Cindy - Wimbledon
Great service and highly recommended by me! Kevin has walked my dog Woshu for over three years, I would be lost without it! Thank you Kevin.
Woshu has become much more social as a result of Dog Walker Wimbledon - thank you
Dog Walker Wimbledon were absolutely fantastic. Ben and Kevin had been walking my chihuahua, Carson for over a year and a half and the service I received was brilliant. They genuinely cared so much about him and provided a professional, reliable and friendly service at all times. They were also very flexible when I had to change days for walks etc as my schedule was changing all the time. Carson thoroughly enjoyed the walks and misses them dearly since moving out to Dubai! I couldn't recommend them highly enough!
We have been using 'The Dog Walker Wimbledon' for just over 2 year now and Ben, Kevin and Patric have all been fantastic over that time.
Even before I picked up Bertie in 2013, Ben was amazingly helpful. I bombarded him with emails filled with questions and always got extremely helpful and thoughtful replies back. He instantly came across as the sort of person I knew I could trust.
For the first couple of months Bertie had puppy visits twice a day. We met Kevin beforehand and it was clear he had a genuine love of dogs and a caring nature. This obviously put my mind at ease.
In January Bertie moved up to his daily lunch time walks with Andy. Again, it is evident Andy loves his dogs and if I am ever at home when Andy picks Bertie up it is clear that Bertie thinks the world of him too and always comes back home tired and happy which is perfect!
Sometimes it’s difficult to put your trust in people not only with your pet but also with keys to your home but I would not hesitate in recommending Ben and his team. Not only have they looked after Bertie so well they have also been incredibly flexible with me. If my plans change at the last minute they will always be accommodating and I can’t thank them enough for that. I definitely found the right people to look after Bertie.
Our dog Danny has been going to Ben for over a year now, for daycare and boarding, and clearly loves it there - he greets Ben and Kevin with the same level of affection that he greets us! We couldn't be happier with the service they provide - their approach is caring and helpful. We would highly recommend them.
We are so happy to have found Ben and Kevin and team to look after our little poodle Chloe. She is a sensitive little soul and receives the very best of care and attention from them, as do we! Nothing is too much trouble and we are so grateful to be able to leave Chloe with such kind, trustworthy and caring individuals who have become part of the family (and Chloe certainly thinks they are her family) over the last three years!
Thank you so much, Kevin for looking after Katie. She was only 10 weeks old and you and Ben came up a sensible, caring routine for her. She clearly enjoyed your company and looked so healthy and happy, when we came back. We did miss her, but it was very reassuring to know that she was so well looked after. I'm sure we will be using again!
Ben & Kevin are wonderful and we know that Poppy is always well looked after on the days they have her. I would have no hesitation in recommending Dog Walker Wimbledon for both daycare and boarding.
Our puppy Asha has been looked after by Ben and Kevin for a couple of months now. They have been very reliable and helpful and Asha has settled in well in their daycare. In the early days when she was very young they kept me updated with her progress on a daily basis which as a new dog owner was great. I would be very happy to recommend them.
Ben and Kevin have been looking after our dog Bailey since August 2015 - I think it's fair to say he absolutely loves daycare and always comes home both happy and exhausted. Last week we went away on holiday and left him with Ben and Kevin for the week and the service they provided was 5 star - they gave us regular updates on how he was getting on and it was a great peace of mind to know he was being looked after by people who care for him as though he's their own. I can't recommend Dog Walker Wimbledon highly enough - excellent in every respect!
We have been using Dog Walker Wimbledon since our dog Ted was a puppy and 2 years on have never had a problem. Ben even helped with training him when he was little, has recommended groomers etc and gave Ted his medicine when he got a very infected eye. I trust both Ben and Kevin implicitly with Ted and they have been very flexible when it comes to arranging walks, pickups and organising overnight stays. When Ted “decides” to go swimming or on rainy days, they always make sure he is dry before he is let him into the house and I always find the house securely locked. We mainly use their day-care service where Ted is very well looked after by Ben, and I know Ted loves Ben and Kevin as much as us by how excited he is to see them! It’s also nice to receive pictures of him with the new friends that he has made! Wouldn’t even consider using anyone else! Thanks Guys xx.
We have used both Ben and Kevin since moving to Wimbledon Park and we and our dog Fitz could not be happier. Fitz is a rescue dog so has some issues, one of which is being territorial and not instantly liking new people coming to our home, when Kevin came for the first visit Fitz adored him within in a couple of minutes and the same was the case with Ben. We see this now when they come to get Fitz for her walks or when we see them in the park and Fitz goes bounding over to them, tail at full wag.
The walks for Fitz are always at the time scheduled and we know she has fun from the photos we receive and how tired she is when we come home from work! Since being walked by Ben and Kevin she has become less territorial and much better with other dogs, for me this really shows how well Kevin and Ben know Fitz and understand and help her behaviour.
Ben and Kevin are 100 percent reliable, always do their best to accommodate your needs and run a very professional service. They are also attentive to Fitz and always let us know if she seems a little out of character or unwell, which is what I think every loving dog owner wants. The main thing for us is that Fitz is happy when she is out on her walks and I know that with Ben and Kevin this is always the case.
We would have no hesitation in recommending The Dog Walker Wimbledon to other potential clients as we are extremely happy with the work you do for us. You’ve always been extremely flexible and have been able to walk our dog with only a few hours notice, and have taken on board any special instructions with due diligence and good humour. You are also completely reliable and we are happy to trust you with our beloved pup and the keys to our house. When you come over it’s also clear how much our dog has taken to you as he was all over you like a rash, which i think is probably the best tendorsement! Thanks for all your invaluable help so far.
Ernie has been going for walks with Kevin for a while now and he absolutely loves it – he’s made some great doggy friends and we feel confident that he’s in excellent hands when he’s out. We’ve sometimes been in when Kevin has arrived to take him out and we can see how much Ernie loves him and his walks – he gets very excited when he’s about to go out! We’ve found both Ben and Kevin to be very professional, reliable and trustworthy. We couldn’t recommend them higher! Ernie is a lucky boy!
Since our move to Wimbledon last year, we have been using Dog Walker Wimbledon/Ben’s services (both walking and sitting) for our dogs Lucy and Linus. Ben and Kevin have been outstanding with our dogs. We can count on them to make sure Lucy and Linus are well exercised and happy. Furthermore, Ben was extremely helpful when I had to deliver my baby 5 weeks early and was required to stay in the hospital for over a week. He was able to provide dog sitting care at the last minute while my husband was busy taking care of myself and the baby at the hospital.
Kevin has been fantastic! He is reliable and trustworthy and has helped us out on many occasions over and above his usual pre-arranged walks. We know we can count on him if the children get sick or we just can’t walk the dog ourselves for one reason or another – and most importantly, Woody loves him!
We are so pleased with Kevin and find him both reliable and very trustworthy. Our dog Bobby is so excited to see him and it is has made such a huge difference to our week knowing that Bobby has three very good walks with him. Bobby is very settled and happy in the evening after he’s been out and has even made new friends! Kevin is really thoughtful and I would recommend him and the business to anyone looking for a dog walker.
We think the team at ‘The Dog Walker Wimbledon’ are great. Our dog Syd loves his walks with them and we feel secure in the knowledge that he is in their safe hands when we are away. They are extremely polite, professional and always do their best to be flexible and accommodate our needs.
Besides having a quirky personality my dog, Tallulah, has a number of medical problems. Ben has looked after her and my bird for over 16 months now for periods ranging from an afternoon to up to ten days. Not only has he managed Tallulah’s ailments and cocktails of pills, he has proven himself exceedingly patient and thoughtful with her, even going so far as to dedicate special blankets for her visits. Tallulah adores him. Ben has keys to our house because we know he is 100% trustworthy and reliable. I could not recommend him highly enough. When we moved here from abroad finding Ben was a stroke of sheer good luck. Whenever we leave our pets with him we know for a fact they will be well looked after and that we will receive frequent reports on how they are doing. Ben communicates well and stays in touch. He is fantastic with all animals, very personable and reliable.
We have been very impressed with Ben & Kevin in the care they have taken in both regularly walking & boarding Ernie, our British Bulldog. As well as regular scheduled walks, they have also been able to cover at very short notice and Ernie is always very excited to see them! We can highly recommend their services, which we feel are excellent value for money.
* UPDATE 2016 *
Ben and Kevin looked after our English Bulldog Ernie (RIP) when we lived in Wimbledon. I absolutely loved them and how they looked after Erns. They used to walk him, Erns would go for daycare when he was younger, and he stayed with them when we went away. We would drop Ernie off at Ben's flat and off he would trot, as happy as can be that he was there, and he didn't mind one jot that we were leaving him!
If we were ever walking in Dundonald Park and Erns spotted Kevin he would make an absolute bee line for him - running all the way across the park to greet him. The way Ernie reacted to them showed us just how well - how lovingly - he was taken care of, and how comfortable and safe he felt in their company. I would absolutely recommend them to anybody, and if we ever moved back to London would employ them again in a heartbeat. A brilliant, brilliant pair of guys.
We got in touch with Ben last year about walking and boarding our rescue dog Ella as we both work fulltime and were finding it difficult to fit in all her walks. She can be quite a handful so we were keen to find someone who would understand her quirks and would be able to handle her. Ben and Kevin have been brilliant from the very start. Ella has boarded with them on a number of occasions and she has always been well looked after. She loves her walks with Ben and Kevin, and we’ve noticed an improvement in her behaviour which is an added bonus! We feel really lucky to have found them and we trust them completely with Ella. We highly recommend this business.
