Papattes Dogwalking
Ashtead & surrounding area

About us

My name is Alison Evans and I am a full-time, professional, experienced dogwalker. I live in Ashtead with my husband Julien. We have two dogs of our own, Billy, a terrier/cavalier cross aged 6 and Georges, a flat coated retriever aged 5.

I grew up on a farm in Wales surrounded by a pack of terriers, spaniels and sheep dogs – it was often said that I was at my happiest in my wellies surrounded by dogs. When I was 15 I helped my spaniel deliver her first litter of pups. I have housetrained many puppies and looked after dogs in their final years, and I've done the bits in between, enjoying it all immensely.

Even though I have my own dogs, I am always looking for ways to meet other people’s; dog watcher, dog walker, dog stalker, call it what you will – I am fascinated by dogs!

After 15 years of working in professional services, I decided that it was time to devote myself full-time to what I loved doing part-time – caring for dogs. And that was when I set up Papattes Dogwalking. If you’re wondering why we are called Papattes Dogwalking, when we taught Billy to give a paw as a puppy, we taught him in French (my husband is French). ‘Donne la papatte’ is French for ‘give the paw’!

My credentials:

  • experienced dog walker
  • NARPS registered
  • trained in dog first aid
  • police checked
  • fully insured


About your dog

Getting to know your dog is important to me. Every dog is different, and I believe that it’s my job to understand as much as I can about your dog to ensure that it receives the best experience I can provide in my care. For example your dog may have a special toy it takes on walks or it may have an old injury that means exercise needs to be limited.

I offer a free face to face chat with you so that we can discuss requirements and a follow up introductory walk, also free. I am canine first aid trained and never take any risks as far as safety is concerned so your dog is in safe hands.

About you

I do understand what a wrench it is leaving your dog in the care of someone else. Trust and honesty are at the centre of everything we do at Papattes Dogwalking. When I used dogwalkers I always valued knowing what kind of day my dogs had had, which pals they had played with and where they had been. I will always endeavour to share these little stories with you! You can follow me on Facebook and Instagram for visual updates. And should you decide you need a holiday without the pooch, we also offer a boarding service for our regular clients so you can relax and enjoy your holiday knowing your dog is in trusted hands, with people it knows.
