    Another long shot but does anyone have recommendations for dog walking companies or people around Great Yarmouth or Lowestoft?

    I have not paid a dog walker before but due to changes in my job I need to consider it now, and no one I know has used any dog walking people.

    There are a few people offering to walk dogs but it seems to mainly be (perhaps) teenagers looking to make a few pounds. I really need to be able to trust the person with my dog, not sure how that can be done unless its a personal recommendation or a company with reviews and licences etc?

    Thanks! Would Great Yarmouth be considered outside your 5 miles zone and incur extra mileage charges?

    Has anyone used Sniffit Pet Care or Paige's Paws Patrol for their help with dog walking in Gt Yarmouth?

    Unfortunately Yarmouth is too far for us to consider with our current bookings and I could only recommend companies based in Lowestoft but I know theyre currently fully booked.

    I wish you the best in finding a company to look after your babies :)

    Find out where the walkers walk at lunchtime when you contact them and go and have a sneaky peek at them walking dogs.

    There is a person around here that gets recommends quite a lot, but I don't think any of those people have ever watched them walk their dogs!!!
    If they had they would realise that this woman spends half her time on the phone, doesn't know where the dogs are or what they are doing and lets them off lead with a few yds of busy roads.

    Pleased go and see before you buy
