Forest Dogs offers your dog a proper walk in local Sheffield woodland and the Peak District where possible rather than regular parks.  We offer group walks, day care, home boarding and home visits.

100% recommend Forest Dogs! Andy (& family) have been so amazing at welcoming our little pup, Sonny. It's so lovely to see how excited Sonny is to see Andy (or Alfie) come to collect him for a walk. And Sonny is v chilled for the rest of the day afterwards. I think it's helped Sonny be social with other dogs from a young age. He loves his Forest Dogs mates 😊

We are so lucky to have found Forest Dogs. We can't rate them highly enough. If only our dog could write this review and tell you herself how much she loves being in the Forest Dog family! I can go to work knowing that she is safe, exercised, loved and happy. What more could we ask for?

Andy at Forest Dogs is professional, supportive, thoughtful and reliable. Couldn't wish for a better daytime dog-care. 🐾 Peak District Puppy adventures absolutely suit our GWP pup down to a T! Will definitely use his other services.

Andy is great, my dog loves her walk with him and I feel very confident that he takes good care of her. She comes home and sleeps having had a lovely walk with plenty of running around 😊

We can't fault Forest Dogs so here it is from a different angle... "My mummy and daddy are both full time working key workers and whilst I was at home at 8-12 weeks old they did so much with me but they kept saying 'we can't due to lockdown'. I was very nervous and hadn't seen many other people at home or in the park, woods. No one would come near me. Mummy found a fantastic guy called Andy who came to see me at home. He smelt of dogs and also had a few other dogs with him at times. I then spent a bit of time with Andy. He was very kind, calm, fun and friendly to me and overtime I became to get to know him. To be able to look up to him and know that he was going to keep me safe. Mama took me to the forest dog den and that was it. I loved it.. I run outside in the wild, then I go and play, relax and chill out with my buddies until it's time to go home. I'm not the perfect puppy and I still worry about things but I know I am safe. Mummy and daddy have to work silly hours and sometimes they need help, change shifts or really need some help. They don't need to worry about me as I am looked after by Andy.

Hello! We're Forest Dogs.

Forest Dogs is a family run business and dogs have played a very important part in our lives. We fully understand what dogs mean to you, so you can trust us when we say "We'll look after your dog".

Andy and Carla are supported by Alfie, the latest addition to the team, their two dogs Winnie and Connie - and lots of helping paws - providing what we honestly believe is Sheffield's most professional, most enriching, and most friendly dog care services.

The Great Outdoors

Walking in forests and The Peak District gives your dogs more varied terrain to explore and enjoy. This better exercise experience means happier, healthier dogs. After a good walk, dogs can play together in our secure garden and rest in the comfort of our family home.

We also book group sessions with SWIM 4 PAWS on the Sheffield outskirts, providing a thrilling - albeit soaking wet! - fun-packed activity that dogs just love (and so do we!).

Check out SWIM 4 PAWS here and check out our Instagram for photos and videos from our vists.
