Well known for her affinity with animals and love of the great outdoors, Mucky Boots Dorset is an established Pet Care Service run by Julie Bowen. With the help of her dog Barney together they have walked and socialised dogs of all shapes and sizes with five years plus of experience. As a family we have raised our own pigs and chickens, are keen Beekeepers and are passionate about our pets. In her spare time Julie enjoys hacking out on her lovely Pony 'Blue'.

We all love our pets, but sometimes circumstances change and we can’t always be there to give them our devoted time and care. Whether you’re busy working late, away for a break or simply feel under the weather just give us a call we are very flexible and will help wherever we can.

Our services

We walk with friends in the open fields and woods, the dogs have plenty of time to play, sniff and explore the hedge rows before being returned home happy and well exercised.

Our walks are tailored to your dog's individual temperament, fitness level, age and breed. We offer small sociable group walks according to the dog and owners requirements.

All dogs are initially walked on a lead for their own safety until I have established a good recall and gained a trusting relationship with them. NB: No more than four dogs will be walked together at any time.

DOG DAYCARE - 8am to 6pm
Worried about leaving your dog at home during the day for hours on end?

You can drop your dog off with us in the morning and they will have constant companionship, with praise and cuddles through out the day. They can join us on our walks, have a fun playtime and lots of valuable socialising with other dogs to. We also have quiet areas where the dogs can find a place to snooze and relax. On your return you will collect a happy, tired and contented dog at the end of the day.

Please note: Strictly well behaved dogs only please. All dogs must be up-to-date with their vaccinations, including Kennel Cough.

Fully licensed, inspected, and approved by North Dorset District Council for dog daycare.

We live in an area of outstanding natural beauty. Surrounded by open fields and countryside, where your dog can enjoy hours of endless fun, running, and exploring while out with us on our morning and evening walks. We know how important your dog's welfare is to you, and offer a warm and friendly welcome in our relaxed adult family home. They will of course receive lots of reassuring cuddles throughout their stay with us.

During the day they can explore and play in our large garden or sunbathe on the patio. To relax they can stretch out in front of the Aga, curl up in their beds in the day room, or have a quiet snooze in the summer house.

Please note: Strictly well behaved dogs only please. All dogs must be up-to-date with their vaccinations.
