About Us



Welcome to our team of partners and walkers at WalKeys


We are 4 partners plus 5 independent professionals leading the way to bring a more secure and legal environment for the benefit of you and your pets in Berkshire and Oxfordshire. We are not a Franchise.

We are a team of mature adults, working together so we never let you down. We offer a reliable and flexible service and assure you of the confidence required to know that your pets are being cared for exactly as you would wish.

We cover each others walks so you can rest assured that we will never let you down.

The service we provide covers everything you require for your pets from dog walking, cat feeding, pet house sitting, pet boarding and day care. Whatever your requirements we are here to help.

Our walks are away from public areas and roads and we use cars, not vans, so your dog can see exactly where he is going and will travel in a similar situation when you take him out in your vehicle.

Your dog will be returned tired and happy and ready to snooze until you get home. We carry cleaning materials and towels and whilst we are not dog groomers, we will do our best to clean your pet before bringing them home.

Our day care is in the quiet village of South Stoke, with lots of land and the river Thames at the bottom of the garden. Your dog will have a wonderful day, being walked, played with, loved and looked after at all times. We do not pen your dogs in and we stay with them throughout the day.

We cover a wide area from Caversham, Sonning Common, Tilehurst, Pangbourne, Streatley and Goring through to Wallingford, Benson, Chalgrove and then over to Didcot, the Chilterns and across to Compton and Ilsley. We cover most of West Berkshire and Southern Oxfordshire.

We are Associated Members of the National Association of Dog Walkers and Pet Sitters, We work to an extremely high standard and strict conduct, protecting not only our customers homes and animals but also our environment and the countryside.

The products we use are eco-friendly and bio-degradable.

We also offer Dog training and Behaviour advice.

We have a life time experience with animals, including horses and farm animals. We have crb certificates, are fully insured and animal first aid qualified. No job is too big or too small. WalKeys staff go that extra mile to ensure that the animals in their care are looked after to the highest of standards.

Colin TaylorVisualiser of Interiors

"Benjie used to chew everything that he came into contact with but since Walkeys have been walking him, he only ever chews his bone and he is now a calm, level headed dream of a dog. Thanks". Jo"

"Senna loves his days at the Vicarage and treats it as his second home! I am so grateful to Helen for all the days she has Senna as he has so much fun and I can leave him happy in the knowledge that Helen loves him as much as I do! Sarah"

Sarah

"We want to say thank you. Baby Winston has really settled down in the evenings and weekends, which must be because he is having a ball with the other dogs. Thank you so much for taking such good care of him" Vikki"

Vikki

We are very pleased with the progress you have made with Ben. He is a different dog now and his energy level has much improved. Thank you again"

Robert Karter

It has been a worrying time and knowing that Pip was being looked after by someone who really cared about her made my ordeal so much easier. Thank you so very much"

Tunde Berecz

Jes would never go outside the gate for anyone but readily left me to go for a walk with Helen. It was wonderful to see her trot out of the gate and across the fields without looking back once, clearly showing that she trusts."

Sally

My dogs love Helen. When I go away, I know that they are in good hands and I don't have any worries about them at all. Helen is very good with them and knows how to take care of them. The best dog sitter I've ever had."

Carole Yee

We were very pleased with how well our babies were when we came back, you did a fab job. Thank you"

Vicky and Andrew

Just a quick note to let you know how pleased we are with Lukie. She was so boisterous a puppy and walking her was impossible. She is now an absolute pleasure."

Gary Kirkland

Our holiday was made so much more enjoyable knowing that our dog was being looked after by you. David and Sarah Allons"

David and Sarah Allons

After walking Buster on a lead for 3 years, scared that he would run off. I now have the confident to let him run free knowing that he will come back to me as soon as I call him. Thank you Helen. Our walks are now so much more enjoyable."

Vicky

Alfie and Susie (springer spaniels) love Philip. They get lovely long walks in the countryside and are often out with him for 2 hours or more. He is reliable and has never let us down. He is also flexible and has helped us out at short notice when we have had to change our usual routine. I can recommend him highly."

Fiona Johnson

Helen and her team have been wonderful especially Derrick who walked my dog most regularly. Due to my work I need my dog walked different days week to week and often walks at very short notice and Helen always managed to get my dog walked no matter how late notice it was. Eleanor Hall Wallingford Posted 4 Jul 2018"

When we first got our rescue dog, George, he was an untrained and excitable hooligan and we struggled to find a dog walker who could, or would, walk him. We contacted Helen who came to meet him and reassured us that he wasn't a lost cause and agreed for Philip to walk him. Debbie Gair Posted 23 May 2018"

Debbie Gair

Cheryl the dog walker is an amazing lady who is a true lover of dogs and they in turn love her. She is incredibly caring and has the dogs best interests at heart. Leanne Miller Wallingford Posted 25 Feb 2018"

Leanne Miller

I can't recommend Walkeys highly enough. Helen walks my dog twice a week and he has the best time. Phil Craig Wallingford Posted 24 Feb 2018"

Phil Craig

Vicky looks after our cat Roly when we are away. She does a fantastic job! Linda Rothwell Reading Posted 29 Oct 2017"

Linda Rothwell

This is the first time that we have had a house-sitter to look after our pets. Our circumstances changed when we got an English Setter Puppy earlier this year, who was a whole different 'ball game' to our very placid 7-year-old black labrador who we could take on holiday or leave with a friend! Wallingford Posted 13 Jul 2017"

Annette Caswell

WalKeys has a wonderful understanding of Poppy and has become a terrific mentor. Poppy was a rescue dog and the first time that we went out in the car with Vanessa for a walk, Poppy started to shake with fear. Sue Brown Wallingford Posted 10 Jul 2017"

Sue Brown

I am very grateful to Helen for walking my dog Molly every lunchtime. It is such a relief to know that Molly is having such a good time and in such good hands."
