Freddie met Sammi when he was 6 months old. He was a boisterous puppy who did not practically like strangers. When Sammi walked in on the first meeting he took one look at her, sat down and was as quiet as a mouse. We knew then this was going to work. Her interaction with Freddie right from the beginning was just lovely to see.
Freddie has now been with Sammi for over 5 years. We really appreciate that she takes time to vary his walks, plays games, introduces him to other dogs, reinforces training and puts pictures of his antics on Facebook. He is so excited to go out with her and her packs, comes back happy and tired after running around woods and fields and finds all the muddiest puddles around. In addition, her knowledge regarding all aspects of canine care is extensive and helpful.  The peace of mind in knowing that Freddie is well cared for is priceless.
Sammi is professional, reliable, dependable and loving and when Freddie was diagnosed with diabetes at the age of two we knew she would be vigilant and responsible and we could relax knowing he was in the best hands we could ask for.  We couldn’t recommend her highly enough

I’ve been going out walking with Sammi and the gang for about 3 years, we go to many different places and take different routes to make the walks more interesting. Sammi has such a good relationship with all the dogs that come out on the walks, they are very eager when we come to pick them up. The dogs have an amazing time on the walks, they enjoy playing and sniffing. Sammi is very knowledgeable on dogs and dog psychology, she has experience with reactive dogs and recognises why dogs behave in a certain way and knows what to do to help them.
Bailey, my dog, has also come along on some walks, his recall has greatly improved as he has learnt off the other dogs. Sammi uses lots of games on the walks to get the dogs to engage with her which they all enjoy. Bailey never liked going in water however other dogs have helped his confidence grow so much that he is addicted to swimming!

Bark and Stride are just the best! Sammy has been looking after our Dog since he was tiny and is so reliable and has never let us down. Our dog loves nothing more than going out with her and waits every morning by the gate! He gets lovely long runs with the other dogs and we can relax knowing he is happy and cared for. I can’t recommend Bark and Stride enough. Thanks so everything!

  1. My 15 month old Bulldog Betsy had not really had a lot of experience with other dogs. So Bark and Stride was the perfect solution for her to meet, walk & enjoy other dogs company. Betsy didn’t really go any further than the front path without her stubbornness kicking in and deciding not to walk. But Sammi & Sara convinced her otherwise. Betsy was picked up and off she went. From all accounts Betsy absolutely loved her time with the other dogs. She even went off the lead! Something I’d hadn’t tried. Both Sammi & Sara are both professional, caring & most importantly dog lovers and I trust them implicitly with Betsy. I shall most definitely be using them on a regular basis from now on. Thank you to you both from me & Betsy.
