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’!
You can follow us on Facebook and Instagram and we use WhatsApp to send photos of walks, pals etc
