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 Weimaraner Belle whom we re-homed when she was just 10 months old.

I set up FMDW back in June 2011 with the aim of providing the kind of dog walking service I would want to use for my own dog.  Along with many years practical experience working with dogs I stay up to date with modern, reward based training and handling techniques and continue to expand my knowledge attending courses and seminars so I can try and be the best team coach I can be!

All my team 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....
