Hello there ! ….



If you're looking at this page then you're looking for a quality Dog Walking/Pet & Property  Sitting Service ? A 'home-instead' pet care service? …….. well .. look no further !
My name is Cathy Griffin.  Many people will know me as 'The Dog Warden'  formerly working for Plymouth City Council.

I started 'Warden's Walkies' after leaving local government after over 28  years in Public Service.

As well as a former Dog Warden I was employed as a Police Officer, an Environmental Health Law Enforcement Officer and an Animal Health & Welfare Officer. 

Warden's Walkies is about the dogs I walk, the cats I Cuddle, the fish & birds I feed and you as the valued customer. You will all be my focus for top quality Customer Care. I will endeavour to fulfil you and your pets wishes, where you would prefer me to walk your dogs ? Towel dried after a walk ? radio on ? When should I visit your pets at your home during your absence?            I shall see to their care and comfort as though they were my own. 

I shall walk a maximum of 3 dogs at a time , only if they are friendly and happy together.

All dogs will be walked on leads, to begin with until I'm happy in the knowledge that I have your dogs' trust &  recall skills under control - they will be free to roam.

Whilst with your dogs I shall carry a First Aid kit and telephone with me at all times. I am not a vet, should the unexpected happen, I shall administer the necessary First Aid and make my way, with haste, to the vets.
My vehicle is insured to carry animals, I can transport your animals to the vet / groomers / hydrotherapy sessions if required. You can rest assured that they'll never miss an appointment.

Whilst property sitting  & /or attending  to your animals, I can administer the 'home-instead' care and routine your pet will feel comfortable with; I can water plants / open and close curtains / gather post away from the front door / put bins out for collection days, making your property looking  occupied, giving you piece of mind whilst away from home.

My aim and satisfaction in delivering my service to you will be measured in how your cats will meow and tail twitch with pleasure, your birds will trill and shake their feathers with delight and your fish will bubble with … umm … anticipation …. if they can remember me!

I may even get a nose twitch from your rabbit, guinea pig or hamster … who knows.
