Dog Walker

Hi, we are
Debbie & Rich

Professional Dog Walkers and Animal Lovers

We have both had a life long passion for pets – from puppies to peacocks or pigs to parrots we've cared for them all.

Becoming professional dog walkers and pet carers is a natural progression for us both to care for animals full-time.

We are:

• Fully Insured

• DBS Checked

• ICOES Qualified in Dog Walking

• Qualified Animal First Aider

• Licensed by the Forest of Dean Council

If your dog needs plenty of exercise or extra walks and you need someone to walk your dog for you then we could help.

We will always meet you and get to know you and your dog before starting any sessions so that we can understand what you and your dogs needs are.


Where we walk

Forest Paws at Perivale

Perivale is our beautiful house situated in the heart of the Forest of Dean with 7 acres of secure, fenced land with gated direct access to Forest walks. 2 acres of this land has 7ft high secure stock fencing and other areas of our land includes a pond, woodland and plenty of space to run around. We have lived here as a family for 10 years now and we have a real passion for animals, we currently have 2 dogs called Ruby & Blue, 3 cats, 4 tortoises including a giant Sulcata called Tiny, a pet pig called Mork and a few ducks. Check out our gallery.

Because of our love of animals and being fortunate to live where we do we thought it would be the perfect place to start Forest Paws. All of our walks will be conducted in the beautiful Forest of Dean or your pet can be exercised in the safety of our secure garden. Please feel free to contact us with any questions, we are also happy for you to come and have a look around and see where your dog will be happy.

Forest Walks

Our walks are perfect for running off all that extra energy, you can choose from a one hour group or individual walk through the wonderful Forest of Dean, either on or off the lead, in a safe and fun environment. We also have a secure area available on request for those cherished pets that you don't like to let off the lead.

Out and About

Socialisation is a great opportunity for your pet to learn some basic social skills and tricks. We’ll take your pet to our secure garden area for exercise, and lots of fun, basic training and games. You’ll be able to notice a difference after socialization, because you'll come home to a more mellow and happy animal.



One on One Time

Does your pet need more personalized attention? Do they have trouble getting along with others? Our individual walks are a great option for those cuddly buddies who can get a bit defensive around others. Our secure area is also available on request.

Contact us to discuss the best outdoor options for your pet. We offer a free no obligation consultation.


Debbie is a fantastic & professional dog walker, Murphy absolutely loves his walks with her and always comes home happy and well exercised

The Transport

Here at Forest Paws the safety and well being of your pet is a priority to us, that is why our Forest Paws Van is fully equipped with the super safe TransK9 crate. That way you can be happy in the knowledge your dog is being transported in a safe and secure way. The dogs always feel happy and relaxed in the spacious secure crates and that way they can fully enjoy their walks and can have the maximum amount of fun.
