Dog Walking Pet Care/Cat care/ and Dog Sitting & 121 Behaviour Training

Covid 19 update 28/3/20

Sadly, after over 6 years of caring for your gorgeous pets and walking your wonderful dogs, The Surrey Ark will have to drop anchor for a while, in order to stay safe, keep you safe and stay home. Message to our regulars, please give your pets a big hug from us and we hope to be back again as soon as it is safe to do so. Stay safe and well.

In the meantime, Sue is offering online Behaviour Consultations from the safety of your own home via video link, at a discount, see our Dog Behaviour Help Page above by clicking on the Orange button


The Surrey Ark is a different, local, fully qualified, trained and experienced, independent, small, family run Cat/Pet Care and Dog Walking company operating in the Surrey area. We are not a chain, with us it's personal. We have over 5 years' experience walking a variety of dogs.

If you are looking for a bespoke dog walker, cat carer, puppy carer or house sitter in Claygate, Esher, Chessington, the Dittons, Hinchley Wood, and Elmbridge get in touch.
We provide high quality care for a wide variety of animals at very competetive prices. We come highly recommended, see our testimonial page on the orange button. 
We are professionally trained having
graduated from Guildford College with qualifications in Animal Management, are Dog First Aid trained, fully insured, caring and with great references.

We offer a premium dog walking service unlike most other companies. We mainly offer a solo dog walk. We operate discreetly and our workers are experienced, highly conscientious animal lovers who will rarely walk more than 2 dogs at once. Dogs in large groups can easily become excitable, potentially causing a problem among the group or to members of the public, walking their dogs. With The Surrey Ark, you know that your dog will never be paired with a dog they don't get along with, which is a rare promise these days as most dog walkers are walking multiple dogs at a time who change regularly. We practice human/dog communications and have a lot of fun and games with them so that they learn to listen to us and form a strong bond with a regular walker. We are a small team of 10 currently, as consistency of staff builds trust in your pet and also allows us to help cover for each other for holidays or illness.  We get to know your dog's personality, their likes and dislikes as individuals and can work on any issues and give them what they enjoy most.  We pair suitable playmates if required as we know our dogs extremely well. We use unmarked cars and therefore do not advertise that you are out, nor do we drive your dog around or leave them sitting in crowded vans. We collect your dog from home and drop them back, clean, afterwards.

See our Services and Charges page for more.


We love animals and they love us!
