Hi I’m Dawn

I live in Gillingham so love to do pet visits in the area as well as walk lots of dogs for Mooches with Pooches in Shaftesbury.

I have a beautiful Rotty called Barnaby who is 9 months old, so I am doing lots of training with him. Previously to Barnaby I’ve owned 2 other Rottweilers – Dexter & Custard. I totally adore the breed!

Hi, I’m Karen. I have lived in Shaftesbury for almost thirty years and I really enjoy working for Mooches with Pooches. I’m happy outdoors whatever the weather and my job means I get to walk some brilliant dogs in spectacular places.

Having owned rescued Bulldogs for most of my married life, I don’t currently have a dog of my own but I am granny to my daughter’s Chihuahua cross toy poodle, Bear. Our house is his second home and he even has his own toy box in the living room.

I am Canine First Aid Trained.

Hi, I absolutely adore and have great respect for all animals, so much so that at age 13 I became a Vegetarian. I loved having owned lop eared rabbits and two cheeky cats – Salt and Pepper.

I’ve lived in Gillingham most my life so I’m really excited to work for Mooches With Pooches and to have the opportunity to be around all animals, bringing them joy with walks and visits no matter the weather!
