Dear Fellow Dog Owners & Dog Lovers,
Thank you for taking time out of your day to read about me and Walkies with Winston.
I have been around dogs all of my life. From a very young age, growing up surrounded by border collies on my granddads farm, to caring for and raising rescue dogs, all supported by a career spanning over 15 years in the veterinary industry. I’d like to think that there isn’t much that I do not know about ensuring the emotional and physical wellbeing of dogs.
I set up Walkies with Winston in order to provide a service which sees me able to give your dog the love, care, exercise and sensory stimulation that it needs. I am there when life gets in the way of my clients being able to do that themselves – albeit only for small parts of their day.
I’ve heard it said many times that you can’t teach an old dog new tricks. Well I don’t wholly agree with that sentiment, as with the correct stimulus – new sounds, new smells, new friends and new experiences, even mature dogs can regain that spring in their step if it has been a little lost.
We aim for all of our customers to be happy and content in the knowledge that their dog is being cared for in the same way that they would care for them themselves.
So, who is Winston? I hear you ask.
Winston is our rescue dog, and he is the kindest natured of any dog we have ever met. Sometimes fate throws humans and dogs together – this was certainly the case when we met Winston.

I would love to chat about your dog and their needs, so please don’t hesitate to get in touch for an informal chat or to schedule a no obligation home visit.
Julie Pratt (& Winston!)
