About Us

Brief History


Established December 2012 in Manchester as a dog walking company catering to discerning clients.

Sisters Elkie (director) and Leah Davies (general manager) sought to develop a business that would keep both dogs and their owners happy!

Dissatisfied with what other companies were offering and from personal experience they realised there was a need for a professional, high-quality pet care company.

In December 2013 they opened their first day care unit in Ardwick Manchester.

January 2018 saw a rebrand, added Lauren (operations manager) and moved to a bigger site in the city centre of Manchester. The latest extension in 2019 being a dog lifestyle shop in the Heatons….and here we are today!
