I am based in Stoke On Trent and offer a very personal and professional service with great customer care.
I always endeavor to treat your loved companions as if they are my own.

Reputation is key to any business and I aim to maintain mine as high as possible.

Dog Walking 121
Let me take the lead and take your best friend out for their exercise and help bring confidence to your best pal.
I will pick your dog up from your home and take them for a long walk.
They will be kept on a lead at all times. They will then be returned to you happy and relaxed. A 121 service as I don't do group walks.
Your feline friend will be interacted with and fed whilst you are away. I have 3 cats and recognize signs of happiness or distress.
Pet Sitting/Live In keeping your home secure.
Working late or away on holiday?
This is where I live at your property whilst you are away.
I will keep your home secure whilst you are away and also it keeps your pet in an environment it is comfortable with.
I also do a call-in service to check in on your pet.
Pet Home Boarding

Gareth from Walk and Wag is very good with Pip and he loves him! He fits in with our rota and is available at short notice.
I am very happy with the service and I would recommend him as a reliable dog walker.

Gareth is brilliant with my 3 dogs who are big and boisterous. He keeps me informed when he arrives and leaves and the dogs love him. Highly recommended.
Welcome to my website.
I am Gareth the owner of the business since 2019
I cover Stoke On Trent and Newcastle Under Lyme (Message for details)
I am now the proud sponsor of the Redgate Clayton FC U12 football team.
I have a passion for looking after and caring for animals.
My late Father was a dog handler in the Staffordshire Police Force.
This was the trigger to start the dog walking and home-sitting service.
I am always increasing my knowledge by taking courses and reading books
My aim is to make it affordable and give an excellent customer experience.
I understand that many animals find going to kennels a stressful experience and our home-sitting service offers a home-from-home environment that allows 121 care and relaxes your dog.
We have three key values:
Meeting owners prior to the first booking (Up to 1 hour free of charge) A trial walk can be arranged at a discount cost.
Restricting the number of dogs walked to no more than two at a time
Keeping records of all work undertaken
Protecting client's personal information at all times
Registered with a local vet as Walk and Wag Dog Walking.
Fully insured and DBS checked
121 care will be provided in most cases. We will take a second dog from the same household.
At the end of the day dogs, like people, are individuals whose personalities can clash when brought together as they are pack animals.
I aim to respond to any query within 2-4 hrs. If I’m not able to help I’ll always try and offer an alternative solution.
When visiting your property I will where possible park away from your home so as not to advertise I am visiting you when you are out.
Exercise is important for humans as well as animals and a walk along the canal or local lake is a superb way to enjoy yourself.
Clients deal directly with me, not a new face each time.
The pet builds up a good relationship with me and isn’t upset when their owners go on holiday.
They still have a friendly face to provide them with love and care when their owners can’t be there, and because they remain in their own home they’re in familiar surroundings.
