After looking for a dog walker to use for my old doggies, I realised there was no one offering this service in the are in 2007. I left my full time job to set up a dog walking business that has grown from strength to strength. I have been studying ACE Free Work for a couple of years and now use this approach in my business. I also have 4 Team members who love their animals as much as I do.

Founder of Contented Pets in 2007.  I needed someone to give my old doggies a short walk and a toilet break when I was at work. There was no one in the local area so I decided to start the service myself. I thought if I needed this service others may need it too.

I have always loved pets and grew up with a Springer Spaniel called Shandy. Once I was married, we had a rabbit called Tuffty. Four cats (Paddy, Molly, Muttley & Jessie) followed by three dogs (Monty & Ollie & Jack) that joined our family. We now have just two dogs. Rum came along in 2012 a year after our old boy Ollie passed away. Rum has been joined by our new pup Pebbles at Christmas 2022. She is full of fun and enjoying playing with our younger guests. She is full of fun and gives space to older dogs but happy to play with all.

“I used to hate going away without my dogs…

I have used Contented Pets to walk my dogs and to board them when I am away and find that they are always excited to see Angela, enjoy their walks immensely and are relaxed and content in her home. It has taken the stress out of going away for me, and my dogs no longer panic about packing. I heartily recommend the services of Contented Pets.”
