Tess has been walking our little mini Schnauzer, Twix, since we moved to Dagenham in the summer.
We were lucky to find Tess, as she has formed such a strong bond with Twix, and has great rates for what she does. Twix gets walked, fussed, and treats - and has also stayed with Tess overnight. She loves her other doggy friends, and we couldn't ask for a better dog walker. So much so, that like the review below, she is also Auntie Tess.
Twix's tail doesn't stop wagging when she's with Tess and that is the sign of an excellent walker.
Tess, or Auntie Tess as we refer to her, has looked after Bear from 10 weeks old and has played a major part in him being the well-behaved sociable dog he is today. Tess is extremely flexible and accommodates last minute care requests due to my unpredictable work pattern. Tess' home provides a great base for Bear during the day and for boarding, with us leaving him there for up to 2 weeks at a time when on holiday. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Tess.

Tess has taken real care of Jake who can be naughty at times and managed his temperament brilliantly! He has made friends and I couldnt ask for more! Thank you!
Tess has walked & boarded my dog buttons for over a year now & he adores her, as she is brilliant with animals, and i honestlyI find her to be a really lovely lady & very trust worthy to the point that buttons walking times crossed with my sons school run so I have now given tess a key to collect & drop buttons back. Absolutely great to have such trust in someone as you don't get that very often now days but in tess you do.. Would recommend to anyone and I've NEVER had any complaints.
I wouldn't jsut trust anyone with Rocky, but Tess is fanastic with him. Rocky loves Tess and you can tell that Tess really cares about all the dogs she walks. I completely trust Tess with Rocky and would recommend her to anyone that cares about their pet as much as I do!
Tess has looked after Benny my lab twice now and I will be using her again. Benny has made himself very much at home with Tess - he loves it there. I can highly recommend!
Tess has looked after my Westie Lilly for nearly 5 years now and I can recommend her to anyone who cares about their dogs. Lilly boards with Tess when I'm away and often has day care, Lilly loves being with Tess and her dogs.
My little pug Dolly came in to my life quite unexpected and having had very bad experiences with other doggy daycares and Dolly having had major surgery we were both feeling a little anxious going to meet Tess.
What can I say no words can actually describe how wonderful her service is. I tell her everyday day I don't know what myself or Dolly would do without this caring compassionate amazing woman who loves Dolly as she is her own.
Dolly adores her (sometimes I think more than me).
Tess is friendly, reliable and has helped me no end even at short notice. It's wonderful to go to work or away for the weekend knowing my Dolly is cared for so well she absolutely loves it and since being there for day care and boarding I saw a remarkable change in my fearful anxious pug.
Tess always stays in contact and even sends me the most gorgeous photos and videos of her having fun with the woof a walk family.
I am a dog owner with no friends and family to help in the area so you can imagine the positive impact having woof a walk has had on both our lives.
Quite truly I would be lost without this service and I wouldn't want anyone else caring for my pride and joy.
Poppy has stayed quite a few times, been very happy and sulks when she comes home because she misses her little friends, and all the fuss that she receives from Tess and her family.
Last year, poppy was unwell while staying at WoofaWalk, and was taken to our vet promptly and a follow up appointment arranged for when we came back from holiday. Thankfully it was all OK. Poppy goes back there next week while we are away, and we haven't got any worries at all.
