We can’t thank Michael & Dale Dandy Dogs enough

August 4, 2021

Our Boston Terrier started to get to know Michael at 9 weeks old- who visited him at home before he was big enough to go out with the other dogs. We are moving to Ireland & Henrik will miss him a lot. Michael not only walks dogs, he gets to know them each individually & they just click! – he cares about them & about you as a family & this is really special. He went out of his way many times to help us with our very energetic crazy boy & we cannot thank him enough for helping us over the last 4 years. Henrik always ran to the window when he seen the van outside and I’m sure he will miss this massively- as well as the treats 🙂


Brilliant dog walker! Would highly recommend

My little chi-poo Poppy has been going for walks with Dale Dandy Dogs since she was a pup in 2016.

She absolutely loves her run arounds with Michael and the other dogs as she’s always happy and full of energy after her walks, and within 30 minutes after her walk she’s blissfully snoring!

I would highly recommend Dale Dandy Dogs, their service is absolutely fantastic! They collect and drop off your dog from outside your home and my Poppy is always up at the window waiting for them to arrive and gets so excited when she sees the van pull up!

I have also used their dog sitting services a few times in the past and they take exceptionally good care of your dog whiley they are in their care.

I would highly recommend Dale Dandy Dogs!!

We used the services of Dale Dandy Dogs for over 7 years but have sadly just had to stop our dog’s walks as her old legs suffered from the excitement of being with her pack! Michael obviously loves his job and treats the dogs as if they were his own.

Honey is a rescue dog and her recall is not great but, out with her doggy friends and Michael, she was able to run about and there was never a problem. The only problem we had was if Honey was out on a walk with us and saw a white van with its back doors open, she would pull us along ready to jump in for a trip out!

Michael will happily have a wee chat if you’re in the house when he picks up or drops off but is equally unobtrusive if you don’t wish to be disturbed. He was also great with our children when they came along.

We were sad to stop Honey’s dog walks but when there’s a fresh pair of canine legs in the house again we will not hesitate to use Dale Dandy Dogs again.

Alfie our gentle King Charles loves his fun walks and frolics with Michael. Alfie has had a week of sleepovers with this wonderful couple. I would have no problem recommending this service to anyone. Keep up the good work guys. Linda, Brian and of course Alfie

Michael has been looking after our boy Henrik since day one. When he was a young puppy he visited him for home visits and took him out on pack walks when he was ready! You can tell he loves what he does & really cares for the dogs. He is also always there for advice & support with any doggy related queries you have & we wouldn’t trust anyone else with our boy!!

Thanks Michael!!!

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.

Great service, affordable, helpful and friendly will use again and happy to recommend

(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.

(May 11, 2012) Sammie, Whitburn:

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!

(Mar 23, 2012) Dick Brown, Armadale:

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
