Sailfin Dog Days: About us and our beginning

Sailfin Dog Days offers professional dog walking, pet sitting, and ‘Puppy Pop-In’ services in Ashford, Charing, and Wye, Kent, plus the surrounding villages.

Although our base is in Kennington, Ashford, we ‘have a car, will travel’ and are happy to come and find you and your pooch in any of the surrounding villages including Bethersden, Charing, Challock, Great Chart, Smeeth, Sellindge, Shadoxhurst, and all the others too!

We have DBS certificates (this used to be called CRB or Criminal Records checks) which means that at least someone official trusts us, and we are fully insured with public liability insurance cover. We do recommend that you check your pet insurance covers your doggies for when they are in our care.

We started Sailfin Dog Days in 2017 after a mere 15 years of thinking about it and quickly found that we had found our vocation. We love dogs, and when your business is built around customers that love us back unconditionally (well, dependent on a pocket full of biscuits sometimes!), then we knew we had found our calling.

With dog walking, home-boarding, and puppy pop-ins all available, we added dog behaviour walks whereby we can walk with the dog and the owner to check on behaviour and make gentle corrections to both human and dog, and help you to work more harmoniously with your pet.

Our team has now grown and is made up of Adam, Suzie, Amy, Maren, Steve, Sophie, Felicity, and Hayley – we are always on the lookout for more dog walkers to join our family, so if you would like to start dog-walking in your area, under our brand, contact us and we can help get you started.
