Passion for Animals
I'm Stuart, owner and chief dog walker (in fact the only dog walker) here at Our Walkies, I set up the business in 2015 after walking dogs for friends, it's an amazing feeling being around so many different breeds and getting to know them and their quirky ways. I'm happiest when I'm outdoors and it's also a brilliant way to keep fit.
I have been working with dogs all of my life and first started our back when I was 15 helping out with my dad's greyhounds and taking them on long walks, that was back when Oxford Greyhound Stadium was open. I have owned dogs most of my life the last one being Cracker the Collie, he was born on Christmas Day so we thought that was a great name.
When I'm not working with dogs I can often be found photographing them as I'm a professional photographer, you can see some of my work on my pet photography website. Of course it's not just dogs I photograph cats and horses as well.
My love for animals doesn't end there, I just love to watch nature, I'm lucky that where I live in the countryside I have access to many great walks where I get to see deer, foxes and sometimes the occasional badger, so as you can see I love love love all animals.
Outside of this I love to cook and keep fit, I love to travel when possible and like nothing more than a good book (a proper one with pages to turn) or a trip to the cinema to watch the latest movies.
I am fully insured, have been DBS/CRB checked and I'm doggy first aid trained.................most of all I LOVE DOGS AND LOVE WALKING.
