I've very much always been an animal person. My parents are greatly credited for this, bringing me up with cats when young, and then along came Jess, our Cocker Spaniel. She is such a diva, and princess at the same time. Jess really opened up my eyes at how crazy, loveable and individual dogs can be.
When I left college, I decided that I wanted to do something where I could work with animals. I knew an office job just was not for me at all. I began an 18-month animal care apprenticeship at a local animal rescue center, where I was extremely lucky to look after and care for a wide range of animals on a daily basis.
It was there, that I had a desire to start up a pet care company where I could spend my time walking and looking after dogs. This is where Westby's walks and pet services was born.
As part of my apprenticeship, I carried out a varied range of tasks, such as giving medication, cleaning animals’ quarters, exercising and enrichment. I really did learn so much there, and I'm very excited to pass on this knowledge to my customers and their pets.
I really am grateful to all my current and past customers, and I very much look forward to providing you the best dog walking and care service in the Blackpool area.
To make sure we can offer a great service to all our clients, as well as being able to travel to nice walking spots, we do have a small catchment area. We currently cover all the way from Fleetwood, through Thornton-Cleveleys down to Bispham.
If you are just slightly out of the areas above, but would like us to walk or look after your pet, then please do get in touch with us. We will do our very best to accommodate all requests where ever possible.
