Welcome to The Fast and the Furriest in Dundee. I am Paul, a local lad, who simply put, loves dogs! I offer a fun, friendly and reliable range of dog services in and around the Dundee area
Approved Dog Walkers
The Fast and the Furriest is not simply a dog walking service but can also support you to overcome difficulties you may be experiencing with your dog’s behaviour, such as recall, lead pulling and socialisation.
I am one, of just a handful, of dog walkers who hold Dundee City Council’s Approved Dog Walkers validation, meaning I must adhere to best practice in the profession. The council stipulate that group dog walks must only ever be with a maximum number of 6 dogs at any one time – this is something which I completely endorse. I am passionate that your dog receives my fullest attention, and my key focus is their enjoyment and exercise.
My credentials have been verified to the council’s standards, therefore, you have complete peace of mind that these are scrutinised regularly. This includes: having comprehensive business insurance; training in canine first aid and being in full control of dogs in my care. In addition to the standards set by the council, I also have a full clean PVG/Disclosure membership and am working towards accreditation with the professional body, the Institute of Modern Dog Trainers.
On a personal front, I have 20 plus years’ experience of living with, and training, abandoned and rescued dogs – an interesting mixture of sizes, ages and backgrounds. Currently I have 4 dogs, or VIPs (very important pups), Reggie our now 15 year old Irish Wolfhound cross who was rescued from Brown Street Kennels in Dundee; Gemma and Lucy age 13 and 5 from Staffie Smiles Rescue; and little Eric, a Romanian street stray, who we raised funds for to bring him to Scotland to live with us. My dogs are featured on my van artwork so they are within me in spirit wherever I go.
I have experience and knowledge, both lived and learned, which I can support you and your VIP with.
I offer a very competitive pricing structure, with the first dog walk free, as well as a full meet and greet with you and your VIP in your own surroundings.
Accreditation and covers
Services we offer
Excellent service. Paul tailored the walks to our dog's needs and we see a huge difference in him socially, he is now much more confident with other dogs. Paul has also helped him become a well-mannered dog. Bailey is always so excited when the Fast & Furriest van pulls up, we would definitely recommend
The Howett Family
Paul is a professional, enthusiastic and passionate dog walker and he has established a fantastic bond with our dog Coco in a very short time. We are really satisfied to have asked Paul to walk our dog, and we would highly recommend him to other dog owners looking to ensure their pet is well looked after, properly supervised and most importantly has fun and enjoyable walks.
Michael and Lisa
Whilst looking for a dog walker for our young pup, I was recommended Paul and his fast and furry gang! On first meet, it is clear Paul is a genuine person and showed lots of care and attention to my little dog. Paul walks our pup a couple of times a week and Archie is so excited when he sees his van pull up and runs to meet Paul outside! I love the videos and photos we get after showing how much fun Archie is having with Paul and the other dogs. Seeing Archie so excited for going for walks with someone else was key to me finding a suitable walker, so It’s safe to say Paul has Archie’s seal (or lick!) of approval! I would highly recommend Paul to anyone looking for a trustworthy, reliable, fun loving dog walker - 10/10 from us!
Kirsty and Neil
Paul has been walking Penny for a while and she loves it, it is great seeing her reaction when The Fast and Furriest van pulls up, I would highly recommend Paul, he’s great with the dogs
Vicky and Paul
Paul is so good with our dog Harley, she loves going out for walks with him and what I love is that he sends you photos and videos of them when they out, so you can see how happy and comfortable she is. Paul has a friendly manner and looks after our dog like she is his own, I would highly recommend him
Leigh and Paul Gibson
We have been using The Fast and the Furriest dog walking service for our two boys (Bear and Buddy) and highly recommend it to any dog owners. Paul is very motivated, approachable and our boys have grown very fond of him!
