  • Dog Walking
  • Pet Home Visits
  • Pet Taxi

Your passion for animals combined with professional training will ensure that your clients receive a reliable and trustworthy service.

Walking in the woodsSadly, in spite of an abundance of loving intention, the safety and wellbeing of our precious pet population is frequently at risk. This is largely due to a lack professional knowledge and a limited understanding of pet behaviour, training and companionship.

There is a definite need in this growing sector to raise standards, secure accreditation and deliver expertise.

We've set our sights on making a difference.

Leading the Way ... for customer trust and reliability

It takes a wide range of skills combined with extraordinary teamwork to run a successful pet care operation - so that's exactly where we've focussed our investment. Leading the Way have chosen an exceptional team of pet care professionals with an unparalleled level of expertise to guide you.

By delivering an accredited professional service, you will be instrumental in helping Leading the Way deliver exceptional support for your clients, and their pets, from day one.

Taking the stress out of pet care means busy customers can get back to the joy of owning a pet.

  • Dog Matching Service: taking time to match temperament, energy and need for socialisation
