    Me
I'm Eddy Morris a professional dog walker in Worcester and a dog father to four rescue dogs.  You can meet my family above (click on the images for more information). The business is supported by my wife Tania.  As well as a dog owners, we are actively involved in animal welfare.
 
I am licenced with Worcestershire Regulatory Services for dog home boarding, achieving the Higher Standards of Welfare award and insured with PetPlan Sanctuary to provide dog home boarding and dog walking.  I also hold a DBS/ (CRB) check (a copy is of course available on request).   Myself and Tania also hold Canine First Aid and CPR certificates and I have recently undetaken courses on Dog Law, Dog Nutrition and Dog Behaviour and Training, to keep my knowledge fresh and updated.

I guarantee professional and reliable dog home boarding  and walking services in Worcester, offering great value for money.  I prefer to spend quality time with your dog on its walk, giving your dog individual attention,  reinforcing any training  and help them with maintaining this.   I do not collect a multiple number of dogs to let them off to run.  I walk dogs on lead, in a controlled manner, teaching and reinforcing lead walking and having lots of fun on the way.  I use a selection of long lines for running and playtime.

We've been dog owners for over 30 years, owning and walking the good, the naughty (there's never a bad) and the ugly (ok, so actually very cute).  Dog rescue and animal welfare now forms a huge part of mine and Tania's lives and we were delighted to have fostered for Evesham Greyhound & Lurcher Rescue.  Our latest rescue is Sally and we are currently training her to use a front wheelchair, after her forelegs were severely damaged due to gunshot whilst she was in Tunisia.​​

Highlights have been teaching sign language to my deaf rescue Spooky Boo and now rehabilitating her with my wife Tania, to walk again following a fall and a severe spinal injury.  Also finally getting Ozzy to come out from under the bed (he was there for 3 months popping out when no-one was looking) to becoming a fun loving dog with a huge personality. 

As I have a background in the 'human' caring profession (where I dealt with the elderly, children and adults with challenging behaviours), this has helped me to adjust my thinking to our four legged friends.

Tania has worked with Four Paws Animal Rescue (South Wales) as part of their fostering team and also with an overseas rescue.   She is also a rescue homechecker, acting on behalf of several dog rescue charities.  She provides advice for first time adopters on behaviour (especially the initial settling in period) and has a particular interest in street dogs.  She is also a photographer and offers pro bona photography services for dog rescue charities to assist dog adoption in the Worcester area.  She is also a fundraiser for dog rescue organisations, raising over £4,000 in two years.  If you are a local Dog Rescue Charity based in Worcestershire please get in touch if we can help photograph your dogs for adoption, on a pro bono basis, subject to availability.
