Would not use anyone else
Michael has been walking Thor from a puppy and the wee dog loves him. Also used Michael for home boarding after a bad experience with kennels and now would always leave the boy with him if on holiday. Highly recommended.
Michael is a reliable, trustworthy and dedicated dogwalker, who has become a good friend. Toby doesn’t even give me a backward glance when he sees Michael and the van. Would definitely recommend him.
Michael’s service is fantastic
Michael has walked my Labradoodle Leia for 16 months. He first met her as a 10 week old puppy and spent time bonding with her until she could go out on walks with him. He is so flexible and can be relied upon on at the last minute. Leia was very ill and needed 2 major operations and Michael was always calling to see how she was and came to visit her – he goes above and beyond. It is fair to say Leia loves Michael and her excitement when she sees him is amazing to see. Thanks Michael couldn’t do the job I do without your support. Laura Kelman Armadale
Great effort and patience with odd dog!
We have a lovely rescue cocker sammy. Michael and his team were great with him, gave him lots of time to settle in and even walked with me at weekend to try to settle him. Rare to have a dog walker put so much effort in. We cant thank you enough. We would not know what to do during the week if you were not so understanding. Sammy loves his walks now even if he does not show it!! Would highly recommend your services.
Michael is absolutely brilliant, I’ve had Michael walk my Poppy for 3 years and he has never let us down. He goes out of his way for you and helps you even at short notice. Poppy really looks forward to her walks with Michael and I would highly recommend Dale Dandy Dogs to anyone who needs a reliable, trustworthy, friendly dog walker and/or pet services.

After having my son I was finding it impossible to take out my two rather hyper dogs. I was recommended Dale Dandy Dogs, and once I got in touch, Michael came round to meet me and my two dogs. We arranged a weekly schedule that worked for us, and soon Tebo and Tilly would be pacing up and down as they knew when Michael would be coming for them! Most days they would come back wet, happy and tired. Great service, reasonable price and very flexible and I would not hesitate to recommend Michael and Dale Dandy Dogs. Really helped me out while on maternity leave!

Thank you again Michael for taking such good care of Schroeder while we were on holiday. He was very well looked after and obviously really made himself at home when he squeezed himself onto your dog’s bed!

We would really like to recommend Michael. He is always helpful and obliging and continually gives us very helpful tips and advice. Michael has also given us extra training with Schroeder, which has been really useful. Schroeder has recently had an operation, so can only have short walks for a while. Michael has shown real concern and has been extremely flexible and accommodating in arranging a new walking schedule for Schroeder. We would just like to say a big thank you

Michael picks our German Shepherd Koffi up every day from my work place. Regardless of the weather Michael is very reliable and always turns up for Koffi. Koffi enjoys her walks very much with Michael and sits at the door waiting on him, especially if he has a pocket full of treats. She comes back Content and sometimes Very Dirty Haha and she then settles down for the rest of the day, I would have no hesitation in recommending Michael to anyone that is thinking using his services.

We have been using the Dale Dandy Dogs walking service on a daily basis since October 2012 and we have found Michael to be very reliable and have been delighted with his service. He has built up a strong rapport with our two Labradors and they are always really excited when they hear him arrive. Most importantly, he knows how to handle dogs,treats them like his own and gives them a really good walk with a bit of variety. We would happily recommend Dale Dandy Dogs to anyone – full marks!

We’re delighted with the service from Michael at Dale Dandy Dogs. Our boxer dog Smeagol goes crazy whenever Michael comes to collect him for his twice-weekly walks. He clearly loves his walks! We originally started using the service when our baby girl was born 3 months ago to help us out with Smeagol, but we’re going to continue longterm as Smeagol loves it and we’re really happy with the service. Thanks Michael.

(May 22, 2012) Fin and Tracey, Armadale:
Michael never lets us or our Dalmatian down. He walks him every week and Dayle loves going with him he can’t wait to get into the van. He gives us feedback about each walk and Dayle is exhausted and happy when he comes back. When he hurt his paw recently, Michael came to see him and we know he genuinely cares about all of his animals. Michael and Annette are both approachable and friendly and we would recommend Dale Dandy Dogs to anyone.

Michael at Dale Dandy Dogs is great, he is very reliable and he great with our dog. He walks Kai 5 days a week and Kai absolutely loves it! Our dog sits and waits on Michael arriving and as soon as he sees the van he runs about like mad. Its great seeing him so happy and I know that having Michael walk him has benefited everyone. Kai has lost weight and has also met lots of new friends which has helped socialize him more. We would recommend Dale Dandy Dogs to anyone who wanted a reliable and competitive Dog Walker.

Michael, thanks so much for taking great care of my chickens, gunea pigs, hamsters and tropical fish while we were away on holiday. Also for watering plants! Fantastic holiday pet care service!

Michael takes my dog sky a walk 3 times aweek. Sky always comes home clean and tired. As I am a pensioner, I think the special rates that dale dandy dogs give to me is very fair. Thanks Michael
