Hello! My name is Susan Ingram, but you can call me Sue! I am the owner of Take The Lead: a complete and professional pet care and dog walking service. My passion is pets and, now, pets are my profession!
The care your pet would choose
Regular walks help to satisfy two of your dog's basic requirements: companionship and exercise.
I offer a dog walking service, either one-to-one, or in a group of no more than two dogs together.
Hour and half hour walks to keep your dog contented and in good shape.
My home and pet sitting services offer peace of mind for you, and exercise, supervision and a companion for your pets.
If you do not have pets, I can take care of your home and collect the post, milk, put the bins out and do light housework.
I can either make regular visits or stay over.
For as long as I can remember, pets have always been a part of our family. The moment I realised that I wanted to turn my passion into my profession, was when I got my first pony at age thirteen. All I have ever wanted to do was to work with animals; from my first job which was at the National Foaling Bank in Shropshire, to attaining my British Horse Society teaching qualification, working with Greyhounds in training, and a receptionist in a busy Veterinary Surgery.
I have always thoroughly enjoyed training my own dogs; from the Kennel Club Good Citizen Award Scheme to Gundog training and competitions. My personal and professional experience and qualifications with animals has given me an excellent understanding of the varied and complex needs of a large range of animals. At Take The Lead, safety and animal welfare are my top priority, so fully understanding your pet's needs is essential. With over 30 years experience both personally and professionally of owning and caring for pets, I offer a responsible, reliable and caring service so you can be assured that your pet will be well cared for.
I am fully Insured, DBS checked, Dog First Aid and CPR trained and belong to the Professional Dog Walkers Association. I am also in the process of studying dog behaviour as my next qualification.
Owner, Take The Lead
