About me

Hiya I’m Emily

I own and run FMDW. I’m lucky enough to be able to say I love my job, that said, the responsibility of looking after someone else’s dog is something I never take lightly. As a dog mum of 3, I understand they’re part of the family and recognise the trust clients place in me to keep their dogs safe, happy and content. I also understand it takes more than having owned my own dogs to be a competent, capable & a responsible dog walker. Along with being trained in canine 1st aid, I have studied canine behaviour, canine body language and puppy development and care. I’m committed to continuing professional development because I know in the world of dogs there is always something new to learn!

Prior to dog walking I spent over decade working for a well-known local tea company which is where inspiration for my motto comes from! “FMDW Where everything’s done proper!!”

Along with running FMDW I own a successful dog treats and gifts company - Izzy and Co. I source and sell 100% natural dog treats all taste tested by my team! When I’m not working I enjoy spending time with my two boys (2 legged) Max & Barney, three girls Izzy, Luna & Rosie (4 legged) and husband Henry at our home in Knaresborough.

"I’ve known Emily for a long time and one stand out thing about Emily is the care and devotion she shows towards her dogs and dogs in her care. I would trust her with my dogs any day of the week and be happy in the knowledge they are having the time of their life"
