Take The Lead

The care your pet would choose





£20/ day

I offer a doggy day care service in the comfort of my own home, without the constraints of a boarding kennels establishment. Your dog will be looked after in a quiet, child free, smoke free environment with my own sociable dog.


Sorry, no bitches in season or entire male dogs over the age of 8 months.





£10/ 30mins

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 four dogs together.


Half hour, 45 minute and hour long walks to keep your dog contented and in good shape.

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!


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, belong to the Professional Dog Walkers Association, and I am training with the Institute of Modern Dog Trainers.
