My Manchester Pet Services

Dog Walking Manchester

Dog Walking

My bespoke Manchester dog walking service is aimed at the needs of a wide range of dogs. I offer both solo walks and small group walks (maximum 3 dogs). A variety of walk durations are offered to suit all dogs.

Dog Sitting Manchester

Dog Sitting

My Manchester dog sitting service is ideal for both puppies and adult dogs. Our pop-in 30 minute visits are very popular but we can also offer longer durations to suit. Dog feeding, toileting and fuss & attention.

Cat Sitting Manchester

Cat Sitting

Cat sitting is the ideal alternative to using a cattery. Many cats are quite independent and do better in their own home environment. My pop-in visits to feed them, clean litter trays and give a fuss are a popular option.

Equine Care Manchester

Equine Care

Equine care is ideal if you have to go away for the weekend or longer. I offer both part and full livery service as well as field checks. I can also attend to meet vet, farrier or dentist on your behalf.

Mandi has been great, she has looked after my pets and provided excellent service, sent updates and photos regularly and was a delight to talk about her pets diets and how I can improve my own pets diets. I would highly recommend Mandi’s services to anyone.

We have been really happy with Mandi and we would highly recommend her as a dog walker. Really thoughtful and caring with our dog. Mandi communicates well with us to let us know how Noodles has got on each day and she is very reliable.
Jon Sands
Dog Walker Didsbury
Mandi is very knowledgeable and caring, she recently looked after my 2 cats for a week, while I was away, visiting twice a day. She sent me updates and Photos so I could be reassured that they were ok. She has 2 rescue dogs and has dealt with their issues and she also has experience with horses. I can recommend Mandi wholeheartedly.

My little fur baby adores Mandi who understands her needs and likes. True genuine pet lover. Would highly recommend Mandi to look after your precious pets. Service is amazing. Used the dog sitting service which made a stress situation less stressful.
Anne-Marie Rock
Dog Sitting Manchester
Absolutely amazing service. My fur baby absolutely adores Mandi and cannot wait each day for her walk. Fantastic prices and extremely flexible when we have needed additional walks. The feedback we get every day is really appreciated and look forward to updates on how she has done. Cannot recommend this business highly enough.

Dog Walking Manchester
Mandi is super! She walked my dog Ernie for me whilst I was away and provided daily updates via her social media. Ernie was clearly very much himself and enjoying his time! Mandi took on board all the information I gave her about his training and what he enjoys and used it to provide him with some really lovely and enriching walks. I highly recommend her service and winter hesitate to try to book in again in the future.

Steve Anderson
Dog Sitter Manchester
We have been with Mandi for a month now, all we can say is she’s part of the family! Our dog absolutely loves his walks with Mandi, so much so it’s twice a week! My boy, loved to pull, run, chase, jump as he feels everyone should love him. Mandi has supported his needs first and always keeps us up to date on their adventures.

Dog Walking Manchester
Mandi walked our dog several times while we were away on our holiday and I’m really happy with the service she provided. From our first meet and greet, I could tell she would be an excellent walker as she had such a calming effect on our very bouncy and excitable young dog. She listened to our dog’s needs and did solo walks in quiet places which is just what our dog loves best. She sent us some wonderful pictures of their walks and I felt very relaxed knowing that Mandi was with our dog. I will certainly use Mandi’s services again
Donna Black
Manchester Dog Walking
Mandi has been absolutely fantastic as a cat sitter. My cats are typically quite shy around people but they’ve really warmed to her in a short time.

Mandi is always very reliable and sends me updates and pictures regularly, letting me know how everything is getting on which is always appreciated.

It’s always super easy to arrange cat sitting with Mandi and her communications help take the stress out of leaving the cats alone, highly recommended and thank you!

Cat Sitting Manchester
We’re really happy with Mandi and impressed with her professional approach. Our dog Roxy was nervous of her in the beginning but Mandi took her time to get to know Roxy and turned up with her favourite treat and a squeaky ball! I think she’s won her over and Roxy has great fun out with Mandi and her new doggy pal! Mandi is completely reliable and sends us lots of lovely photos of Roxy’s adventures

Dog Walking Manchester
Unique amongst the dog care services we spoke to, as she has a great understanding of canine behaviour and body language etc, and only utilises positive reinforcement, both of which are essential for working with our (extremely anxious) rescue dog who requires far more patience than most! It was great knowing while we were working that our dog would be kept company for some of the day and have a wee break etc and be taken care of by someone who is willing to work with such an extreme case with the necessary patience and understanding.

Chewie absoutely loves his walks with Mandi and has grown in so much confidence around other dogs. Mandi is great always keeping us updated with pictures and videos and is super reliable. Would definitely recommend!

“EXCELLENT dog walker”
My dog Hector is a very energetic 2 year old Labrador and he loves going out for walks with Mandi. When he hears her car outside the house he bounces around excitedly at the front door waiting to see her.  We first met Mandi nearly in May 2023 and Hector instantly felt comfortable in her company. I was so happy when Mandi agreed to add him to her weekly schedule as he is much bigger than most of Mandi’s regular 4 legged friends, but she got to know him and built up a super rapport with him and he’s very attentive to her commands and communication and very well behaved and obedient on her walks with other dogs too.
Initially Mandi came for a few weeks to give Hector ‘comfort breaks’ as he had recently had live inoculations and couldn’t mix with other dogs. He was stimulated with toys and games and very much enjoyed the treats (which are high value and nutritious) as rewards, as all Labradors do love their food! Once he could mix again Mandi was careful to pair him with her other charges as Hector was nearly 2 feet tall by then and very bouncy.
Mandi is totally trustworthy (we feel confident that she holds house keys to take care of Hector whilst we are out) diligent, conscientious and very caring with all the animals she takes into her care and her gentle and ‘firm but kind’ tone of voice and body language reflect these qualities too helping the dogs to feel at ease and strengthens the bond which Mandi has with them. Hector has a weekly walk with Mandi and comes back after having a full hour out (sometimes a little longer too) very tired and sleeps soundly afterwards. We got regular updates via text message also videos in the early walks which ensured us that ‘all was well’ and that Hector was safe and having lots of fun on the many different walks and surroundings Mandi would go. I regularly request extra walks and Mandi always manages to fit us into her busy schedules which helps us very much, and letting us know the day before what time she will arrive, so accommodating!
I would definitely happily recommend her services to anyone she is responsible, reliable and very trustworthy and loves animals deeply, also with her great experience coupled with an extensive wealth of dog behavioural knowledge, Mandi gives me total confidence that Hector is in ‘great hands’ and is extremely well looked after, which is so reassuring.
Big thanks Mandi for all your valuable help and care,
Jay Johnson & Hector

Frequently Asked Questions

If you have any questions that are not answered by this website please feel free to contact me.

I always try and make sure my Manchester dog walking service is affordable and competitive with what others are charging locally. We don’t walk large groups just to make more money. Quality of service at a fair price is what I feel is important. You can visit my dog walking service page to see current rates.

I offer a free meet and greet up to 30 minutes where we can chat about what your dog likes and dislikes and any health conditions we would need to be aware of. We also ask you to complete a more detailed dog information sheet looking at things such as the cues you use with them so we can also use those same cues. We may also have a short walk with you and your dog.

I will walk up to 3 friendly and socialised dogs, very occasionally we may walk 4. We choose to walk very small groups so that all the dogs receive individual attention. There is less likely to be conflict in the group, they can still play and make friends and the group remains more manageable and therefore safe.

Angel & Rubi Pet Care are insured with Cliverton Insurance which covers public liability to £5 million, care, custody and control and loss of keys. We are also DBS Checked (CRB) and have taken both canine and feline first aid courses.

Angel & Rubi Pet Care will only walk your dog off lead when we have a reliable recall with your dog. We also ask that you sign an Off Lead Consent Form which is required by our insurers. If however you do not want your dog to go off lead we will not let them off lead. Some dogs benefit from being on a long line to give them some freedom while we continue to work on recall (please note we are not trainers or behaviourists, but can work with you around basic cues). Please note if your dog is any kind of a flight risk or has a very high prey drive they will never be allowed off lead.

If your dog is anxious we can still walk them once we have built a bond with them. This may mean having a number of home visits to gain their trust. If they are then happy to come with us we can then walk them on group walks. Please note for anxious dogs we would advise that ad-hoc or walks once a week are not enough as it can take well over a month for anxious dogs to adjust to a dog walker. So we advise having at least 2 walks a week.

I cover South Manchester and some areas in Stockport for our puppy visits, cat feeding, dog and cat sitting service and solo and group walks. These include Levenshulme, Burnage, Reddish, The 4 Heatons, Withington, Didsbury, Chorlton and surrounding areas. For our equine care service we cover the whole of Greater Manchester (please note some areas may incur mileage charges).

I’m all about your dogs having fun and we will provide stimulating walks, dogs will get wet and muddy, we live in Manchester! We will towel dry your dog and ask that you leave towels out for this but we will be unable to get them completely clean. If requested we can leave them in a safe designated area.

I will walk whether it is pouring down or sunny but we do have a Hot Weather Policy. If it is unsafe to walk your dog due to extreme heat we can use few different measures. If safe to do so we will walk very early in the morning, if not walks will be cancelled and drop in visits will be
provided for people at work. We will also have to cancel dog walks for extreme stormy weather or severe snow. Again drop in visits can take place for people at work.

Unfortunately no we do not as their scent will attract unwanted male attention. We will offer drop in visits and ask that you let us know if you think they are having their season.

No I don’t currently offer overnight boarding services. I’m unable to dedicate the time needed for day care due to being busy with dog walks during the day.
