Dog Walking & Domestic Pet Care in York since 2012

Please note our new e mail address;

Walking Miss Daisy was launched in June 2012, by Sophie Wainwright and Martin Pinfold. 

We decided to start our own Pet Care Business after many years working in industries which, though they enabled us to meet some lovely friends and colleagues, weren't ultimately rewarding. We wanted to spend our days working together and also doing something we love.

We are genuinely passionate about animals and understand how precious pets are to their owners. We currently own two special chinchillas, Rosie and Lily, some gorgeous dwarf hamsters, and a beautiful, very soppy Goldendoodle named Daisy who we drove a long way across the country to collect from a breeder, when she was just a tiny puppy. 

Daisy was a major inspiration for starting the business. She has such an important place in our lives, as do all our animals, and they are all deserving of absolutely the best care and all the loving attention we can give. We know that the same applies to all pets. Only the very best will do and we will work to this standard, always.

Walking Miss Daisy offers a comprehensive range of services. We want to do things a little differently to others before us and add a little creativity into the mix. Our business is bespoke, designed to be flexible so that we can tailor it to each customer’s preferences. We will go out of our way to provide quality of care, with the relationship between us, our customers, and their pets, being paramount. Small extras and personal touches will be integral to the way we work, and we would never put a price on this.

For example, we won't charge you more to walk a dog individually, to feed your pet, to attend them earlier or later than the usual working hours, or if greeting and cuddling them happens to take ten minutes instead of two.

To reflect that incredibly deep bond between you and your pet, we offer more than the standard services. Walking Miss Daisy is based on giving every-day, invaluable care, but we also want to meet that desire to give them an indulgent treat once in a while and to offer something extra-special. These additional services include weekend walks for your animal and an ‘indulgence day’ package, which gives you time to do other things and us the chance to spoil him or her.

We can also arrange for your dog to be groomed (either after their walk or as a separate trip) and if you would like to see a favourite photo of your pet transformed into an original piece of art for you to treasure, please click onto the gallery link to read about our Pet Portrait service and to see some samples.
