Richmond Dog Care

Hi, I’m Fiona - the owner of Dogknows Richmond. 

I’ve been an animal lover my whole life, having grown up surrounded by many pets including our beautiful Old English Sheepdog Candy, the incredibly energetic Weimaraner, Amber and more recently my own dog, Betsy the Miniature Schnauzer and Harry the cat!

I enjoy learning more about dogs and have completed courses in Canine First Aid, Dog Law as well as the all encompassing Dogknows Dog Care & Everyday Training course.  I have ongoing support and personal coaching from Bobs Broadbent, the founder of Dogknows and I attend seminars and workshops to futher my knowledge.  I am currently working towards becoming a registered Dog Training Instructor with the ABTC

At Dogknows Richmond we only use kind, force-free handling techniques to help build strong bonds of trust with the dogs in our care.  We are one of only a few dog walkers in the area that have a professional dog walking licence for the Royal Parks. This means that most of our walks are in the stunning Richmond Park, allowing our doggie clients to have the very best adventures! We can cater for group or solo walks or even walks for the golden oldie that needs to take things a little slower.  We also have a Puppy Play & Train service to help & support you in those all-important early weeks when your puppy first comes home. 
I am often out with dogs and driving during the day so the best way to get in touch is by text or e-mail.  Then I can call you back as soon as I am free.  Or you can send an enquiry form.

The Dogknows

I am particularly keen to enhance the lives of the dogs in my care whether they are a new puppy just starting out in the world, an energetic adult or a golden oldie who just enjoys a gentle stroll in the park.

Because our policy is to take on regular clients who need dog care at least three times each week, it is possible to get to know each dog really well which means we understand their individual characters and traits so we can provide the best possible service for them and give absolute confidence for you.

If you want more for your dog, why not test out the difference Dogknows can make?

What our customers say

  • Starting with Dogknows couldn't have been an easier and more reassuring time. Fiona gave her expertise to cater to my dog, who can be a little bit of an adventurer to say the least! January 2017
  • Fiona is brilliant. She is extremely professional and we trust her implicitly with our cockapoo. When we met Fiona she came across really well and Lexie instantly took to her. We can really rely on Fiona and I highly recommend her dog walking services! Natasha Grainger
  • We love working with Fiona. She is lovely, reliable and our dog Hector absolutely adores her. We would 100% recommend her without a doubt! Charlotte Natter
