My Story

Hello, my name's Andrew.


I want to tell you why I run a premium dog adventure service in Sheffield, as I feel that my story needs to be told. 


For over 10 years I worked in the corporate world in a standard 9-5 relatively well paid job.  I was out of the house a lot during the day and my wife, Lauren was training to be a Doctor.  So, when we got Rosie the Labrador back in 2015, it meant that we needed a dog walker.  We were not happy leaving her on her own all day long, that's for sure. 


Here's a picture from our wedding day back in 2019, she even carried the rings down the aisle for us during the ceremony.  Rosie's still going strong at 12 years old and is treated like an absolute princess.

Of course Rosie was there for the wedding!

Anyway, we found a dog walking service for our beloved Rosie.  Now I won't go into too much detail, but unfortunately, in time, we found Rosie wasn't being given the care we thought we were paying for.  We made a bad choice.


Fast forward to the summer months of 2020 - the height of the pandemic.  I had been placed on furlough from my finance job and I had plenty of time to think on what I wanted in life.  I embraced redundancy with both hands and decided to follow my passion in life... you guessed it, dogs!


I wanted to offer a service that in my opinion, goes above and beyond.  A small, personalised service where the needs of the dogs are more important than profit.  I want to right the wrongs on what poor Rosie had to suffer with our ex-dog walker, who we mistakenly trusted for such a long time.


I now use this negative experience to inspire me.  I'm grateful to now have the chance to help dogs and their owners in S10 and S11 of Sheffield by running Collar Country Club.
