What our clients say

Testimonials

Danny and his team are fantastic, Barney has so much fun on his walks and he has made lots of friends along the way. He’s a very sociable dog so loves the group walks. Our shift patterns vary week by week so having such a flexible dog walker works perfectly for us. He’s also never turned us down should we need him at short notice. Being first time dog owners, Danny was very helpful when we first got Barney and gave us lots of useful advice on training before he was old enough to join in on walks. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him and we always look forward to seeing his pictures of the gang!

If possible, I always leave my boys with Dan when i go away – they already know (and love) him and I know they are well looked-after. This kind an boarding is far superior to kennels as I know they’ll get the one-to-one attention they need. Dan also knows them so well he’d spot straight away if they were acting out of character for any reason. I can’t properly enjoy my holiday unless my labs are staying with Dan! Super-friend service & super-reliable dog walking (never been let down yet!) Can’t fault Good Boy… would recommend to anyone!

Simba has made many friends with good boy dog walking and always comes back worn out after. I can relay on good boy dog walker to make sure he gets the exercise he needs when I’m at work.

Danny, Laura and team have been walking our dogs since our puppy was old enough! You can tell they absolutely love their walks, and they get the exercise and run around they need to release some of the mountains of energy they have! They come back sleepy and worn out for the night. The team are so friendly and reliable and more than accommodating (especially for a naughty little puppy)! And the photos that they take are absolutely fantastic, it’s great to see them having such a good time! We wouldn’t trust anyone else to walk them now!

Scooby has been walked and had overnight stays with Danny, Laura and their staff for over 2 years now. We have found the team very reliable and friendly. Scooby is always wagging his tail when he hears the van pull up and hears the sound of his walkers voice. We have found the team very flexible and there is no doubt that they love the job they do as much as they love the dogs. I would have no hesitation in recommending Good Boy Dog Walker to anybody.

One day on the racecourse with our dog Lily, I came across Laura walking a very contented group of dogs. I was so impressed with her gentle manner, fondness for and knowledge of the individual dogs she was with that I knew our Lily had to join them! Any chance that Lily can go out to play we take, knowing that she will have plenty of fun and as much activity as her Duracell bunny legs will take. She’s always very excited to hear any of the vans approaching and can’t wait to get out the door – without a backwards glance at us. On her return, she’s happy and absolutely shattered. Danny and Laura have had Lily to stay for a few nights and it was a relief to be able to leave her in their care, knowing how well she would be looked after. We love seeing the joyful pictures of all the dogs posted and look forward to ‘Lily spotting’ when a new batch comes up.
We can’t recommend Laura and Danny highly enough – they’re totally fab (Lily agrees!)

I would not trust anyone else to look after my boys like Danny and Laura do, they obviously love the dogs they take out and care for them just like I would myself!! Best dog walker in York and worth every penny. So patient and understanding of difficult dogs (and difficult owners) and I highly recommend.

Danny looks after my sons dog regularly so felt happy for him to look after our dog for our sons wedding but still was a bit nervous as she is a rescue and we only had her for a few weeks. Danny did a great job not only taking care of her with plenty of exercise and attention but also sending us pictures to reassure us it was going well. She even had a couple of accidents and he was really understanding . Highly recommend his service and will certainly use again.

Danny and Laura take such good care of our pooch, we couldnt be happier. Shes a very lively 2 yr old bichpoo, since Dan and Laura have been walking her, her recall has come on so much. They took care of her for the first time for a few days last month, when we have left her behind with others before we get a lot of sulking when we return, not with Dan and Laura, i dont think she wanted to leave! The pictures we get are fantastic. Dan and Laura are both fab, we cant recommend them enough. Thank you guys!

Danny and Laura have been fabulous with our two beagles! Always very accommodating, trustworthy and reliable. The dogs go running to the door when they see the van pull up and they seem to have a fabulous time on their walks. I would highly recommend Good Boy Dog Walking.

We have used Danny and the team at Good Boy since Betty our spaniel was a puppy she is now nearly 4. We also have a 14 year old spaniel that they have cared for. Both our girls are very special rescue dogs and are part of our family I would not trust anyone else to care for them. Betty absolutely loves going out with her friends and it has helped with her obedience and confidence she really gets excited about her walks. After her walk the team make sure she is clean and dry and settled. The team always keep in touch if , very occasionally they have been delayed in traffic which is very reassuring. I love my dogs and completely trust the team to take care of them, they always have a smile and even in the worse of weather are cheerful and enjoy the dogs company. I rate this service more than 5 stars , they love my girls as much as we do.

Good boy dog walkers have been amazing! Best dog walkers we’ve experienced in the area. They even gave us a gorgeous Christmas decoration with Holly’s paw print on it which we will treasure forever. Highly recommend!

The walkers are always friendly and it feels like they love the dogs they walk, when they arrive Dexter can’t wait to go out with them!!! Would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a dog walker who treats them like they were they’re own.

Danny, Laura and the team at Goodboy have been walking our Sprocker Spaniel Kai for over 3 and a half years and we couldn’t recommend them highly enough! They have been brilliant with him and the joy on his face when they turn up to take him on his daily walk is priceless! Their prices are also the most competitive in York.

We have also used them numerous times to home board him when we’ve been away on holiday and they keep us fully update with some excellent photos.

Thanks again for all your help, we know Kai will certainly miss you all once we move.
