Baffles has been going on his daily walks with Emma and his four-legged friends since August 2019 when he was just a few months old.


Ever since then he has sat in our window in the mornings waiting patiently to be collected. He has matured, learnt some manners and how to socialise properly with other dogs thanks to Emma. More important than that, he absolutely loves Emma! So much so that it’s sometimes difficult to get him back in the house after his walks.


Introducing Baffles to Emma was the best decision that I’ve made for him. He’s such a happy dog as the many photographs show.

Can't recommend A Dogs Best Friend enough, Emma has walked our dog since she was a puppy and is 100% reliable, our dog absolutly loves her and we can see from the photos that she has a brilliant time on her walks. We couldn't ask for anything more.

Emma is great with my Lacey and loves it when she hears the van pull up outside. I trust Emma and she has been walking lacey since she was a pup (Lacey's 3 now). I wouldn't want anyone else and neither would Lace. Emma has been flexible if ever we've needed to change Lacey's walk time and is always happy to accommodate where she can, we would highly recommend 'A Dog's Best Friend' as, as far as we are concerned she really is :)

Emma at A Dog's Best Friend has been walking our dog for more than five years. She's reliable and trustworthy and we know Daffy is in safe hands when he's on a walk. He comes home happy and exhausted! We love the Facebook updates and she's always quick to reply to messages. Would highly recommend!

I can’t recommend Emma enough. Our dog absolutely loves her (maybe a little bit more than he does us!) She’s incredibly reliable and has been really accommodating with any changes or additions we need. I feel completely secure and happy knowing our dog is in her care.
