How H became the Mad Dog lady!

My name is Heather and I am a professional dog walker in the West Berkshire area.


I am a lifelong dog enthusiast, and all my dreams came true at the age of 12 when my family adopted a retriever cross puppy from a local rescue centre who we named Oakley, he swiftly became my very best friend. Oakley was and still is the motivation behind everything that I do.


In the summer of 2014 Radley a Whippet x Border Collie came to live with us from Dogs Trust Newbury. Radley and I enjoy doing agility and Rally Obedience together but most of all we enjoy meeting and walking with new doggie friends.


My passion was reflected in my choice of degree and in 2012 I graduated with a BSc Hons in Animal Science (Behaviour & Welfare) from Plymouth University. After graduating I qualified as a Canine Hydrotherapist and worked for 3 ½ years in a Canine hydrotherapy and Doggy Day Care centre where I became Centre Manager.


In 2015 I felt I had gained enough relevant experience and decided to take the leap and set up H for Hounds.
