About Me

My name is Lori and I have been a professional dog walker for 9 years . I have had a great love and passion for animals from an early age and dogs have played an important part in my life , following a successful career as a carer , I decided it was time to change direction , combining my love of animals and the great outdoors !

I am currently studying a Diploma in Canine Behaviour and Diploma in Canine First Aid.

My business has been built up successfully through recommendations and word of mouth . I love every moment of my working day, walking and caring for the many lovely dogs I am lucky enough to spend my day with.

My beautiful girl Hatty also accompanies me on group walks, she is a rescue from Many Tears and has blossomed into a confident , happy young lady, such a difference from the scared girl we rescued. She shares my love of the outdoors , camping and of course , beach holidays ! 


I provide a highly reliable, trustworthy dog walking and small animal care service within Dudley,Tipton, Sedgley and surrounding areas.

It is so important for your dog to be walked and socialised, for both physical and mental stimulation, and so if you have to leave your furry friend for long periods of time, I can help to break up their day and provide company.

I provide daily group walks, picking up your dog and transporting him/her safely and in comfort to a variety of lovely walking locations within the local area, including Baggeridge,  the cornfields and wrens nest nature reserve or a walk from home location, returning home happy with a wagging tail!

If you prefer your dog to be exercised and socialised within my enclosed field, please feel free to enquire about this. All dogs that come out on the enclosed field must be dog friendly as this is an off lead, group walk.

Once your dog is home, I will text you to tell you about their adventures and send regular picture updates and videos.  

I also provide a call-in-service, if your dog just needs a toilet break, feeding or just company in the comfort of his/her home.

All pets need to vaccinated, and have up to date flea and worming for the safety of all pets that are in my care. 

Collars with tags are required and must be microchipped.I also require an emergency contact details , vet details and a briefing of your dogs personality and any medical history that is relevant. I provide treats whilst out and leave one with your dog on return with your permission.

Coming soon!! Puppy socialisation at secure field!! Will be offering a half hour socialisation walk for the younger dog, just some time out to play and burn off some energy, meet like  minded puppies and  take in all the new smells, sights and sounds, a great way to build your pups confidence and social skills in a safe and happy enviroment.

If you are going away and need your cat/rabbit/guinea pig etc. feeding, letting out, cage/litter tray cleaning, I will also do this for you, as your pets may prefer to be in the comfort of their own home, this also gives you peace of mind, that someone is checking on your home whilst you are away, closing curtains, even putting the bins out!

Happy Trails is fully insured and I am CRB checked.

So why not get one of those wagging tails on one of my HappyTrails!

Having moved house and had to give up my normal dog walker, Lori was recommended to me, and what a fantastic recommendation!! Lori is flexible, trustworthy and highly reliable. She adores my field spaniel Charlie and the feeling is mutual. He always comes back wet, dirty and incredibly happy, because dirty dogs are happy dogs! he is dried off, given a massive love and I'm sure sneaking treats before curling up on his bed for a well deserved sleep! I know this because Lori always texts me to tell me about his walk and the mischief he has been upto! Thank you Lori for your continued love and support!!

Lori is an absolute God send. The quality of service and care shown for our beagle Bomber is second to none. We are a young professional couple out at work all day and we are very discerning about the people we let into our home and into our lives, and I have no hesitation at all in recommending Lori to anyone. We love her, but more importantly, so does Bomber.

Lori is extremely hard working and professional on every level. She is very reliable and always gives her clients ample notice of any annual leave dates so you can make alternative arrangements for your dogs if necessary. As I work full time, it has been essential for me to find someone who I can trust to ensure that my dogs have the same kind of care, love and attention that I would bestow upon them myself if I were at home. Lori takes the dogs on a wide variety of exciting walks, they are always transported safely and on return they are towelled down if wet and settled back into their home. My dogs adore Lori and bark with excitement when they see her. I always tell my friends that I have the best dog walker in the world, and if my dogs could talk, they would agree. Brilliant service!
