Walkies and Paws

Passionate about animals


Hayley Tucker

I’m Hayley and I live in Horsmonden with my husband, Glen, and our beautiful black miniature schnauzer called Ruffy (or her full name Ruffington when she has been naughty!)

Ruffy is three years old and she has changed our world in so many ways but most importantly she brings a smile to our faces every day.  She is our first dog but we have wanted one for years now and decided to  hold off until we had moved from central London to the countryside and could dedicate our time to her. My parents own a beautiful rescue dog called Misty who we see regularly and her and Ruffy are the best of friends.

Glen and I love to travel and walk so before getting Ruffy, we travelled to some wonderful countries and walked many miles. Now we have Ruffy, we are using that opportunity to explore this beautiful country and find lots of new places to walk her. You’ll always find the three of us wandering the amazing orchards and fields around this area or over at Bewl Bridge, Bedgebury and Haysden.

Ruffy has opened up a whole new world to me and I love being part of that and provide all the love and support I can to her and to other people’s pets as I understand how hard it can be to juggle the responsibility of owning a pet and daily life.  Whatever the reason I am here to help.

I love my job and feel very lucky to be able to spend my days with so many lovely dogs, cats and chickens!

I completed my dog first aid training in November 2018 with Dog First Aid – Kent. This gave me great knowledge on what I need to do in an emergency situation when one of the animals in my care is in need.

I am insured with Protectivity Insurance for dog walking, cat sitting, house sitting, pet taxi, key holding and I am also CRB/DBS checked for total peace of mind.
