James Graydon Rhodes

I created Walkies and Paws  – The walking revolution in the search for something refreshingly different in a world of “Just dog walkers” I truly believe. that when you have the passion for giving something amazing back to animals you will reap the rewards of true friendship & love of that animal.

I grew up in rural Nottinghamshire and as a family we always had dogs in the house, mainly Springer & Cocker Spaniels but over the years I have had the pleasure of owning some of the most amazing animals both dogs, cats, chickens, hamsters & corn snakes!

I am the very proud owner of Soxx who is a four year old Labradoodle & Perri who is a four year old Cockapoo and am very lucky to be able to have them with me daily and they come on most of my walks. I love all animals and as a holistic therapist not only have I worked with horses at local livery yards but also with other animals holistically in training, behaviour and health.

My foundations in everything that I offer stem from a love for animals & a desire to see them at their happiest, I believe that treating my four legged clients with love & respect is a key to a wonderful experience for animal and owner.

I am insured with Protective Insurance for dog walking, cat sitting, house sitting, pet taxi, key holding and I am also CRB/DBS checked for total peace of mind
