About Me

I’m Simon, a dog walker in Chorlton, South Manchester. I live with Mickey, a lovely Jack Russell Cross. I adopted Mickey from the RSPCA Rescue Centre in 2011, where he had been taken in due to neglect. When he first came home, he was a nervous little doggy unsure of his new surroundings and was temperamental with other dogs when out on his walks. After lots of training, care, and loving attention, he is now a happy little hound who gets on with all dogs when he is outside and just loves to play. (Since writing this, Mickey sadly passed away on June 13th 2016 due to a tumour in his abdomen, which was too much for him in the end. RIP my beloved boy).

I was born and raised with a range of family pets including a German Shepherd, Border Collie, and a King Charles Spaniel. I have a passion for raising carefree and obedient dogs. Having worked full time whilst bringing Mickey into the family, I realised the importance of a reliable dog-walker who helped make Mickey the well-rounded dog that he was until he passed away.

I have set up dogs-buddy to put my experience at caring for dogs to good use, and to ensure that others have the opportunity we had to ensure their dogs are well walked.
