Success! Message received.

No hesitation whatsoever in recommending Kevin to anyone seeking a dog walker.  Kev has walked our wee Jack Russel - Mac for over five years and has always been friendly, helpful and reliable. 

~ Bob Martin (Mac - Jack Russell) 

Highly recommend Kevin and his dog walking services.  He is very professional and helpful with dog behaviours.  Kevin was very helpful and patient with Ernie when he first went walking with Kevin.  Ernie is not fond of getting in vehicles but Kevin was great helping with this.  Ernie loves his walks with Kevin. Best dog walking service we've tried.

~ Alison Peebles (Ernie - Golden Retriever)

Kevin is truely a fantastic dog walker.  Always professional and cheery - despite the weather.  Sam absolutely loves the group walks out with crew and we love seeing his adventures documented through Facebook.  Then when Sam gets home he is always ready for a nap.

You've been an amazing dog walker and friend to oor wee Sam so thank you so much for all you've done for us. You've truly ruined other dog walkers for us cause we'll never find one like you!!.

~ Cath McNally (Captain Sam -  Terrier Cross)

I cannot praise Kevin highly enough. The nature of my work and family dictates that I can't always give my dog a proper walk during daytime. I was introduced to Kevin by my previous dog walker as the only person she would trust to do the job. The choice was simple and we have been using Kevin's services ever since. Kevin always gives the dogs personal attention and my dog can barely contain himself when Kevin comes to the door. The variety of walk locations, mix of breeds and just sheer fun for a dog in group experience always leaves Archie tired and happy when he comes home. One good walk with Kevin and the crew will keep your dog happy and healthy every day. This leaves me to enjoy nightime walks with a very contented Westie who's ears prick up at the very mention of Kevin's name. He is a true Gent, always polite and calm and never fazed by the busy rota of well loved pets. If you are looking for a dog walking service from a person who truly loves animals and gives 100 percent to the task, look no further. There are many alternatives out there who will cram as many dogs as possible into a session for pure profit. Kevin is a very refreshing alternative. His service really does lead the way. Cheers James.

Many thanks for looking after my old Daisy girl . Brilliant job and posting her pics so I could feel at ease really helped me not miss her as much as I usually do. Great personal service Kevin is now part of the family.

~ Rob Parrish (Daisy - German Shepherd)



Kevin is so kind and accommodating, as well as GREAT with dogs. A+++

~ Kim Terrell (Petunia - Pug)



Thrilled to bits with the personal service provided by Kevin. Very reasonable rates too. Regular photos posted on his page reassured me that my furbabies were well looked after whilst I was away. We will use Lead The Way over and over again as well as recommend to anyone who will listen!

~ Suze Parrish (Dylan - King Charles Spaniel)



Highly recommend Kevin. Dog walker. Local Busby nothing too much trouble. Murphy gets so excited when car drives up. A really reliable dog walker.

~ Georgie Burns (Murphy - Cross Irish Woolhound)



First class experience from Lead the Way Dog Services for cat sitting.  Maxie and Speedy loved Kevin, great to be able to look at Kevin's posts while we were away to reassure us that the cats were well. On our return cats were happy, contented and stress free. A much better option than a cattery and will definitely use Kevin in the future, and have already recommended him.

~ Linda Devlin (Maxie and Speedy)



Kevin is so good with Mabel. She was quite nervous around other dogs and now through her pack walks with Kevin and the other dogs she is much more happy and confident. He is a genuine dog lover, really trustworthy and he will bend over backwards to make sure your dog gets the love, care and attention they need. I would recommend him to anyone. I was apprehensive at first as an over protective dog owner but Kevin really knows what he is doing so you can relax and feel happy that your dog is having a great time when you are busy at work. Get involved!

~ Lynsey Semple (Mabel - Collie Cross)



I can't highly recommend Kev enough.  Jake and Cookie send a big woof woof!

~ Shona Oszadlik (Jake - Border Terrier & Cookie - Patterdale Terrier)



I would highly recommend Kevin as he's very reliable, accommodating & GREAT with dogs. He interacts & plays with each & every dog. My 2 Greyhounds love him.

~ Roni Layne (Kollin and Bessie - Greyhounds)



Kevin is great and I could only highly recommend him :)

~ Suzanne Gallagher (Sophia - Puggle)



I would recommend Kevin without hesitation! Kevin takes time to get to know the pets in his care, and as the owner of a rather nervous cat, this was most appreciated. Also, as my cats didn't have to go into a cattery, I found both Holly and Midgie were very happy and contented when I returned from holiday. They'll never be going into a cattery again!

~ Susanne Dawson (Holly and Midgie)



Thank you very much for the excellent care you gave Dylan and Daisy while we were away. We will be recommending you to EVERYONE.

~ Suze Parrish (Dylan - King Charles Spaniel)



5 Stars.

~ Laura Weir (Bolt - West Highland Terrier)



We cannot speak highly enough of Kevin of Lead the Way. He is extremely knowledgeable about and experienced in the needs of all sorts of dogs and he gave us great advice and boosted our confidence as new dog owners when he first started walking Milo. We were particularly impressed by his expertise with greyhounds and have no doubt that Milo, who was initially a very nervous rescue dog, benefited enormously from Kevin's group walks.

Kevin is professional, courteous and absolutely trustworthy; he is always on time and answers emails promptly. Most importantly, he clearly cares deeply about the dogs in his care and goes to great lengths to add variety and enjoyment to their walks - as we could see on a regular basis when looking at the lovely photographs and video clips he posts on Facebook and Twitter.

We would wholeheartedly recommend Kevin to anyone looking for a dog walker in this area

~ Linda Cochrane (Milo - Greyhound)



I really appreciate the time you have put in and the attention that you have given her to make her feel comfortable wuth you.  It really has made such a difference.  We are so happy with her walks and I love that we can have a sneaky peek of what she's been up to in your Facebook page too!  Thanks again for all you have done.

~ Catherine (Sandy - English Springer Spaniel)



Kev is absolutely brilliant, appears on time with great feed back. Mac the Jack can now walk without a lead in open spaces, thanks to Kev

~ Mairi Houston (Mac - Jack Russell)



Kevin at Lead the Way looked after my elderly Golden Retriever for over a year. I cannot recommend him highly enough. This is someone who completely loves his work and the dogs he looks after. His gentle and caring way ensured my complete trust in looking after Dipsy who has recently passed away. Thanks Kevin for all you did for Dipsy we were lucky to have found you...From all of Dipsy's Family xx
