Hi, I'm Lauren the founder and owner of Crawley Dog Walkers.
I am an animal enthusiast that has a real passion for animal welfare. I love walking and training dogs but the best part of this job is definitely getting to improve a dog's quality of life through socialisation, exercise and training.
I started dog walking professionally (full time) in November 2019 which is when I completed my dog walking / pet sitting diploma.
I created Crawley Dog Walkers in February 2020 and haven't looked back since!
The first 6 months were spent really focusing on gaining as much knowledge and experience as I could. During this time, I successfully completed foundation courses in ‘Canine Psychology', ‘Pet First Aid' and ‘Canine Training & Behaviours'. I also volunteered for a local animal rescue as a home checker alongside my daily dog walks.
Just over 12 months later I am now CPD certified in ‘Canine Training and Behaviour' and currently hold a Level 3 qualification in ‘Canine Psychology'. I am a proud dog mum raising a very high energy Border Collie named Freya and I work with a wonderful team of dog walkers.
At Crawley Dog Walkers we are very much a close-knit family business with 4 walkers in the team. Myself and the girls are all hugely driven and we just adore the job.
Myself and Clare are full time walkers, we are both qualified in pet first aid and both hold an up-to-date DBS security check.
Becky works for us part time, is qualified in pet first aid and holds an up-to-date DBS security check.
Kayley works for us part time and holds an up-to-date DBS security check.
Although dog walking is the day job we also offer a range of other services including:
