About me

My name is Jo Blake.  I own and run Forest Moor Dog Walking. I live in Knaresborough with my husband Alex and our dog Belvedere the weimaraner whom we rehomed when she was just ten months old.

When I set up FMDW in June 2011 I had a clear aim in mind - to provide the kind of dog walking service I would want for my dog... To go out every day with energy, integrity and enthusiasm and make sure the dogs get the most out of their time with me.

All my furry clients get lots of love and attention when they are with me and I ensure when they are dropped off home they are settled and ready to have a snooze until their humans get back.

I'm lucky enough to be able to say I really love my job. That said, the responsibility of looking after someone else's dog is something I never take lightly. To us dog owners they are part of the family. The safety and welfare of the dogs is my number one priority.

I hope you find all the information you are looking for on the website. If you have any questions, please be in touch, I'm always happy to have a chat....
