About Us

Professional Certified Dog Walker

Dog walking is at the moment an unregulated industry, so you need to make sure your dog walker has the right experience and credentials so you can put your full trust in them.

K9 DayCare is a professional dog walking and pet sitting company based in Bournemouth offering pet parents like you a safe, trustworthy, and reliable pet care solution for the times when looking after your pet may be difficult, because of inconvenient working hours, illness, a sudden emergency, or when you are just time poor.

We have set up K9 DayCare the right way from day one, with the correct processes and procedures in place to provide the best level of care at all times for your pets. We are members of the Professional Dog Walkers Association (PDWA). The PDWA are setting the dog walking industry standards and best practice guidance for businesses like ours and we follow their guidance to the letter. 

I have passed a Professional Dog Walkers (IMDT) certification program with the Institute of Modern Dog Trainers

The IMDT certification covers knowledge of the law, risk assessment, canine welfare, canine behaviour and behaviour change, introducing dogs to each other, dog body language and dog handling.

The health and safety of your pet is of upmost importance, we are fully insured and canine first aid certified. Our ethos is to provide a personalized approach to each and every client, giving you a unique tailor made service that suits the demands of both you and your furry pal, so you can be guilt free knowing that your dog is kept happy and healthy.

Yes we insist on this. We offer a free face-to-face initial consultation so we can understand your dog’s personality and individual needs. This will also give you the chance to meet us and ask questions. Deciding to move forward is a two way decision and hopefully this session will give you the confidence to do so.

We collect your dog from your home / place of work at an agreed time and then return them after their walk.

Yes K9 DayCare is fully insured with a pet business policy via Protectivity Insurance. We can show you our certificate during the initial meet and greet session.

No. Most of our clients are comfortable sharing a set of keys to enable us to collect and drop off if you are not at home. For peace of mind we are DBS checked to make sure we have no criminal records

Contact us by email or phone at least 24 hours before the booking for no charges to apply

In the unlikely event of an emergency, we will immediately call and notify you. At the
consultation we ensure that we have all the family emergency contact details. If medical care is
needed we will take your pet to your named vet, or depending on circumstances to the nearest

Your dog will be under constant supervision by a certified professional dog walker and will never be left unattended
