We are professionally trained having
graduated from Guildford College with qualifications in Animal Management, are Canine First Aid trained, fully insured, caring and with great references and over 7 years' experience. Sue, our Dog Behaviourist runs the team and trains all of our very experienced walkers with new dogs to meet the needs of each particular dog. All dogs are different and have their own needs.
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 unless we think they are a good match and you are happy about this. 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 encourage 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 5 currently, as consistency of your walker 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 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.

We love animals and they love us!
