Jo has walked our two dogs for nearly 7 years…they love her, and so do we! She is professional, reliable and always keeps us informed. We trust her to look after them both as we would and that peace of mind is so important. Thank you Jo…I would recommend you wholeheartedly!

Jo is professional, friendly and gives a great reliable service. She has a natural empathy with dogs and handles my springer spaniel in an excellent manner. Rosie loves going out with her. She has grown in confidence with other dogs, on return is rinsed and dried when necessary and obviously has a good time. I would be lost without Jo as being a springer Rosie requires a lot of exercise, more than I can give her. I highly recommend Jo and FMDW.


Could not recommend Jo highly enough! She has walked Daisy since she was a puppy (just 1 year now) and been with her every step of the way, from puppy visits, mini supervised walks to a full blown member of the FMDW gang! Daisy loves Jo – you can tell from the wagging tail (and wiggling bottom) every time she arrives! It is so lovely to know that Daisy is having fun and frolics with fellow FMDW doggos, whilst having the confidence that she is safe hands with Jo. Jo is always reliable and professional and goes the extra mile. 5 out of 5 paws.

Jo has been such an amazing person in our life by taking Max and Mylo everyday for fun filled walks and taking such great care of them! She has also spent time working on their behaviour which has made an exceptional difference out on walks and in the house! I couldn’t recommend her more!

Jo has been walking Rosie since we moved to Knaresborough and Rosie and I both love her! Rosie is fitter than she has ever been and clearly loves her walks with Jo. Jo is also fantastically accommodating of my slightly chaotic lifestyle as a busy working Mum. Thank you, I don’t know what we’d do without you!

Alex & Rosie

Jo from FMDW is like I’m walking my dog every day myself. On occasions I’m lucky enough to be here when Jo comes to pick Mollie up & the excitement I see from my little lady in seeing Jo makes me know she’s with the right person. I also love the photos and updates that Jo makes the time to share….my Mollie is very precious to me and Jo treats her like her own and that means a lot. In short I couldn’t wish for any one better to look after my little girl!

Jackie & Mollie

Mum and I would both like to say how grateful we are to Jo for her help with our 3 year old labrador ‘Alfie’. Jo is flexible, reliable whatever the weather and professional…more importantly Alfie looks forward to his walks with her too. Alfie is an energectic, social dog and his time out with Jo seems to meet his needs especially as he is always tired out afterwards. Both Mum and I would highly recommend Forest Moor Dog walking.

Julie, Kerry and Alfie

Puppy Care for Tilly – I found Jo through searching local dog walkers. From first meeting her it was very apparent that she loves all dogs and they seem to love her! Jo helps us three days a week and knowing that my dog is with Jo gives us the confidence to leave her. Jo is always happy to help out at short notice and always lets us know how our puppy has been throughout the day. I would be happy to highly recommend Jo. She is a genuine dog mad person and we have great confidence in her.

Jo is brilliant with Gilbert, who as a one year old vizsla can be a handful at the best of times. When Jo met Gilbert in our home for the first time you could tell how experienced she was with dogs, as Gilbert, who is usually over zealous with visitors to our home, was totally calm and responsive. This gave us an enormous amount of confidence that Jo was the right dog walker for us.  Jo has been great at offering us flexibility, as often I need to drop everything and get to work, and she has always been happy to fit Gilbert in for a last minute walk. She has also been ever so helpful in passing on her knowledge and experience of dog training and control. Gilbert is always cleaned and dried at the end of his walks with Jo, and she has even been happy to clean up a few puppy accidents when he was young. She has also been willing and understanding of the routine Gilbert and I go through before, during and after walks, making Gilbert’s walks with Jo a smooth process, and for one very happy and well exercised vizsla.

Claire, Steve & Gilbert

Jo came to my rescue over a year ago when I was unable to walk my very energetic young dog due to a back injury and she had been helping me out ever since! Saffie, my Red Fox Labrador, is very energetic and needs a lot of exercise. She also needs someone who can be firm with her and she is still a youngster and also extremely bold – nothing frightens her!  Jo certainly knows how to handle her . She takes her out with other dogs that she can have a good run with and always comes home tired out. Jo always cleans her up if she needs it (she does like to roll in smelly things) and dries her off if she has had a swim. She settles her in her bed when she’s brings her home and gives her a little treat as she leaves. Saffie loves her and I am sure she knows when it is her day to go out with her.  I would recommend Jo to anybody who is looking for someone who is reliable and friendly and loves dogs! I know Saffie is always in safe hands when she is with Jo.

Clare Bothamley

We have been using Jo since June 2012 to walk Maple. Although Maple is trained she is quite excitable and sometimes a little unpredictable. Jo handles her perfectly and keeps us updated on Maples behaviour and lets us know if she has any problems. We use Jo every day and can go to work every morning knowing that Jo will be picking Maple up for a lunchtime walk. Maple loves going out with Jo and has even found herself a boyfriend…. Jo’s dog Hogan!  We would definitely recommend Jo’s services to anyone looking for a dog walker.

Gemma & Gary Gordon

I would just like to say thank you for everything you’ve done for Hugo and helping us out at last minute whenever you can. It makes such a difference to be able to leave the house and know he’s going to be well cared for. Hugo has been used to the same routine since we first got him and has adapted to all the changes really well thanks to you!

Elly Cadman

Jo has looked after my two labradors since March 2012 three days a week. They look forward to seeing her and very much enjoy their walks – so much so that they are tired out when I get home! It’s great that Jo can come to the house to collect them and I know that I don’t have to worry about them while I’m at work. I would not hesitate to recommend Forest Moor Dog Walking and Jo.

Lesley Fleming

Jo has been walking Bobby for about a year now and throughout the whole time we have been very impressed with the service she has given. From meeting her for the first time when she came to introduce herself to us and Bobby, to the action shots on Facebook and texts during the daily walk. It is obvious how much Jo cares for the dogs she walks. Bobby only needs to hear her voice and goes crazy with excitement! We would have no hesitation recommending Jo to anyone and have been truly grateful for the care she has shown to Bobby. Thank you again.

Andy & Laura

We’ve been using Jo’s service since August 2012, and throughout that time, we can honestly say, she’s been absolutely brilliant. She is definitely someone that we have come to rely on! We first met Jo when we did a search on the internet for a dog walking service, and a few came up but we decided that we would like to meet Jo. Right from the very start, she put our minds at rest, and it was evident that she had had a lot of experience and a genuine love of dogs. I know that Benjii, our 3 year old Yorkshire Terrier, thoroughly enjoys his daily walks and adventures. We come home in the evening and hes chilled, happy and I can tell he’s had a great time. Benjii can be a very strong willed character, but Jo’s fantastic with him and knows how to handle him. Its very clear that Jo loves her job and is very trustworthy and reliable and we would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a professional, genuine and committed service. Thank You Jo! We’d be stuck without you!

Chris & Sarah Nelson

Ernie, our 1 year old Maltese loves going out for his walks with Jo. Its clear how much Jo loves her job and the service she provides is excellent. Jo has been walking Ernie since he was a young pup and has helped ensure consistency in his training. Its great that we can go to work 100 per cent confident that our boy is well cared for – he is always tired out and content when we get home. Jo is trustworthy, reliable and honest and we would recommend her dog walking services to any dog owner.

Sandy, Sophie & Ernie

Jo has been walking my pug BB for just over a year. It is clear Jo loves dogs and BB enjoys her walks. Jo is reliable and I know BB is in safe, caring hands. Highly recommended.


We cannot recommend Jo highly enough since she has been walking our working cocker – Lucas. Jo has been 100% reliable since she has been walking Lucas and Lucas loves his daily walks with Jo and his friends and we are happy that Lucas gets excellent exercise everyday with Jo.

Guy and Clare Rusling

Jo is a reliable, trustworthy, diligent and caring person. I trust her completely with my dog and know she will be well looked after, walked in a safe environment and brought home a tired but very happy dog.

Jacqui Hargrave

Forest Moor Dog Walking is fit for the Queens corgis! Jo is so good with all her doggy clients, and is really in tune with them all, attending to them individually with the kindest of hearts. She’s compassionate, trustworthy and communicates so well. Calli always looks forward to her walks and comes back suitably exhausted from all the running, playing and zoomies. Can’t recommend Jo enough!

Jules Harris

We use Jo’s services for our 2 dogs Nuka and Roxy. Jo came to meet them first which was great as Roxy can be a little nervous around new people. They both took to her straight away. The girls are very active dogs and it was great to see them worn out after their walk in the evenings. I am so pleased with the service we receive from Jo. She is very reliable and punctual and the girls love her. We would have no hesitation recommending her to other dog owners.

Leah and Jamie

Jo offers a fantastic reliable service. She has been walking Clyde since he was an 8 week old puppy. Initially offering puppy visits twice a day and progressing onto walks with other dogs. Jo really cares about the dogs she walks and takes them to some lovely places where they can run around and have a good time. Clyde has always been returned clean from his walks. I have been lucky enough to have been at home occasionally when Jo has called to collect Clyde and I have seen how is he happy to go with her. Its reassuring to know Clyde is happy with Jo while we are all at work/school.

Jackie Young

Jo is an outstanding dog walker – reliable, friendly and professional and, most importantly, she absolutely loves the dogs in her care. Our young border collie has been having daily walks with Jo since he was a puppy and loves his time with her and his doggy pals.

Mr & Mrs Vasey

We have been using FMDW since August 2017 and we think Jo is amazing! Bo loves her and all his furry pals! Its been great for Bo’s confidence to be off lead with other dogs. Jo is reliable and has been a great help in giving us advice, hints and tips. Its really lovely to see how much she genuinely loves what she does and really cares for the dogs she looks after. Love all the Facebook updates too, its great to see what Jo has been up to on his adventures!

Laura Considine

So so glad we found Jo. Rufus loves her, the walks and the ‘team’. Would recommend to everyone. We couldn’t be without her knowing Rufus is always happy and safe.
