Denise's son Merlin was born in 1991 and has grown up and lived with dogs most of his life. He studied forensics then molecular biology for a few years, before deciding that academic life wasn't for him. Due to his love of dogs he has now decided to start a dog walking service. This service also includes spending time in the home with elderly or infirm dogs if you have to leave them for a time.
Merlin has always had an interest in dogs, which particularly showed when he helped walk the dogs in his mother's boarding kennels. He also dog sits for Denise and Sue when they travel to dog shows.
He offers a caring, professional, individual and above all kind service, and is happy to meet you and your dog prior to any appointment being booked. Merlin is based in Long Bennington, has a clean driving licence, is fully insured and can offer references. Merlin is happy to travel to help with your dog, but further distances will incur a small additional charge. He does not walk large groups of dogs together, but due to his experience can manage large or problem dogs. He will keep you up to date on your dog's wellbeing by text message.
Merlin is studying dog psychology and training, and has currently finished his first module. He also sometimes helps in our grooming room, thus helping to broaden his knowledge and understanding of dogs.
Merlin can be contacted through this website or by phone - his number is 07852133244
Merlin has shown his aptitude for dog walking from an early age!
