Hi, my name’s Gerry Casey and I'm the owner of Dogknows dog care in Windsor & Eton.
I’ve always loved dogs and it was always my ambition to be a vet, but I narrowly missed out on a place at veterinary college at the age of 18 and ended up going in a very different direction with my career. My working background since then has been in the automotive industry, but Dogknows has given me the chance to finally pursue my dream to work with animals.
Dogknows is not simply about walking your dog. Our aim is to bring owners and their dogs closer together by helping them better understand each other. All Dogknows services focus on force-free and positive handling methods and we always put your dog’s specific needs first.
Whatever your dog's age, I can tailor a service to their individual requirements. We have special services for very young puppies with our puppy 'play & train' visits, followed by socialisation walks as they progress. I can also collect adult dogs and take them in small, well-matched groups for a purposeful and stimulating hour's walk in a local park, so they come home happy, relaxed and well exercised.
By choosing Dogknows, you can rest assured that your dog will receive regular and reliable support from a professional dog carer. I am fully insured and DBS/CRB checked. My vehicle is designed to transport dogs safely and is fully air-conditioned to ensure your dog’s comfort in all weathers.
Working with dogs is something I find hugely rewarding and I consider myself extremely fortunate to have been finally able to follow my dream.
You can e-mail or call me directly or, if easier, send an enquiry form
and I'll get in touch with you.
Here's what my clients say about the Dogknows Service!
Thanks to Gerry's sensitive approach and patience, Ziggy has returned to being more at ease after a brief spell of being nervous and jumpy especially of loud sounds! We are very impressed with the way Gerry took time to get to know our beloved pet and us when he first met us a few months ago. He gave us some helpful advice and tghe CD of sounds he supplied was definitely very useful. The gradual and considered introduction to other dogs also being walked means we have a happy dog who is always pleased to see Gerry and looks forward to going out with him. I would not hesitate to recommend Gerry. (Mina & Manny - Datchet August 2015)
Nearly a year ago, Hugo, a gorgeous but very strong minded border collie puppy entered our lives. Thankfully so did Gerry Casey or I am not sure we would have survived the onslaught! To begin with Gerry arranged daily, tailormade play & train sessions; this led on to train & walk sessions and eventually group walks (small groups with appropriate companions). As a result, and in no small way due to Gerry, we enjoy a happy, healthy, well balanced dog who is very well socialised. Thank you so much for all the work you put into Hugo as well as the advice, encouragement and support you have always provided. (Janet & Graham Edwards - Colnbrook August 2015)
Having moved into the area I was looking for a new dog walker and it was important for me to find someone who was caring, consistent and flexible. Gerry at Dogknows goes above and beyond building rapport quickly with my dog who returns every day extremely happy. I wholeheartedly recommend Gerry. (Jon, Windsor, July 2014)
Finding the right dog walker was very important to me as it meant putting all my trust and faith into someone else looking after my little girl (Yorkshire Terrier). It is clear that she loves visiting Gerry as her little tail wags every time she sees him. So she has a great bond and created a friendship there! This completely puts my mind at ease knowing that Gerry will look after her with care and fun. Gerry is very professional, organised and very accomodating in making sure that everyone is happy with the services. Definitely a brilliant service as well as a really nice person. I would clearly recommend him to anyone looking for a dog walker who is trustworthy and professional. (Elizabeth, Windsor, July 2014)
We are absolutely delighted that we found Gerry. We love the fact that although our dogs get to socialise, there are never more than four dogs on any walk and most especially that each walk is at least an hour long. We have definitely noticed the difference in Bono and Macy who are both completely exhausted (a good thing!!) when they get back. We would not hesitate to recommend Gerry to anyone looking for a new dog-walker in the Windsor and Eton area. You will not be disappointed! (Heloise & Giles, Windsor - May 14)
