Give your dog something to talk about!

Wide open fields. Sandy beaches. Forests. Moors. These are some of the locations I can walk your dog, and give them a real story to tell you afterwards about how they explored the countryside and coastal areas of North Cornwall. Maybe they met new friends, or maybe a scent on the fresh wind had them excited. Either way, they’ll have a wagging tail and a big yawn to show for the day’s adventures.

If your lifestyle, schedule or routine makes it tricky for you to walk your dog, I can do it for you and give you peace of mind your canine pal is being looked after in your absence. If you’re away for some time, I can take care of your dog. My aim is to assist you, make your life easier and solve any doggy problems you have.

Whether your dog is a cheeky Terrier, a curious Spaniel, a golden oldie Labrador, or anything in between: I will tailor the level of exercise and care to their unique situation and provide an excellent service to both you and your dog.

A Home from Home

Having your dog stay in a home environment while you are on holiday will give you peace of mind that your family pet is having just as much fun as you are. I will keep you updated throughout their time with me. 

When staying with me your dog becomes one of the family. From sleeping next to (or on!) my bed, cuddling on the couch in the evening to play time during the day, guest dogs don’t have time to be homesick. We go on several long walks a day and they are never alone. Monty and Mabel are so friendly and playful, they end up making every dog feel at home. But if your dog wants space they are also happy to keep their distance.

The difference to a stay in a conventional kennel couldn’t be bigger!

About Me, Monty and Mabel

Hi, I’m Fran. I’m the founder and owner of North Cornwall Dog Walking. I’ve lived in North Cornwall since 2009. In that time, I have formed a deep love of this beautiful county, along with an understanding of its unique geography, climate and ways of life. Cornwall is a forever home for me, my family and my pets.

I have owned dogs and numerous other pets all my life, and I’ve learned that walking is the key to happiness & well being, both for humans and our beloved canine companions. I care deeply about animal welfare and your dog’s time with me is top priority.

When it’s appropriate, most walks are shared with my two dogs, Monty and Mabel. Monty, an Irish Setter x Collie, soon to be Agility Champion (of my heart, at least) was born in 2016 and is the most playful dog there is.

Mabel is a rescued Irish Setter girl born in 2015, and she’s wonderfully loving and sociable even with her troubled past. Those two are happy to join your dog on walks and enjoy some group socialising & playtime on the beach, fields, forests and beyond!


"I rescued a male Doberman with a troubled background. Regular walks with Fran & her dogs have helped him settle & bring fun to his walks.

They are best friends!"
Owner of Dobey
"Reliable and trustworthy, she always treats my dogs as if they are one of her own which is all I can ask for, even thr grumpy old slightly smelly jack Russell who’s not the easiest to make friends with."
Owner of Barney
"There is no one we trust more with our dog than Fran. She is caring, careful and wise. Most importantly, she has a genuine love for animals.

We recommend Fran 100%."
Mo & Jim
Owners of Flowsie
"Fran, Monty and Mabel look after my dog Dougie several times a week. He loves his walks and always comes back happy and tired from having so much fun! She is very trustworthy and I get regular photos and videos whilst they are out on their adventures. Fran is very knowledgeable about dogs and cares for Dougie very well, even down to the natural treats she uses. I would highly recommend Fran, Monty and Mabel and thank them very much for the care they show to Dougie."
Owner of Dougie
"I can’t thank Fran enough for making our three babies feel at home.
We have never left them with anyone but family. I can honestly say that she made us feel very relaxed about us leaving them and kept us informed all of the time.

We will definitely be using Fran again."
Owner of Poppy, Dusty & Diesel

My Services

Dog Walking

I am ready to give your beloved pooch an hour or more of exercise tailored to their needs.

This is typically in a small group with other social dogs, or 1-to-1 if you prefer. Each walk is different to the previous, with new adventures happening every time!
Mainly serving the area in and around Crackington Haven & Boscastle

Dog walking is £10/hour, min 1 hour.

Home Boarding

Perfect for those one-off or regular occasions where you are away for an extended time.

Your dog can stay with me and my family in a safe, friendly home. Walks and other activities will help avoid separation anxiety, and will make your Pooch feel at home!

Home Boarding is priced based on your needs.

Visits To Your Home

Best if your dog prefers to stay at home and would benefit from agreed, scheduled checks.

Many dogs just like being at home. I will visit your home to check their well being, food & water, and walk them as needed. Dog cuddle time is optional, but recommended!

Home visits are priced based on your needs.

Free Meet & Treat

Before undertaking any activity with your dog, we will discuss their situation, their likes & dislikes, personality, what you want from our time together and how I can help you best achieve that. We will also fill out a Registration Form to get as much information about your dog as possible.

Licensed by Cornwall Council

We are proud to be licensed by Cornwall Council as per new Dog Activity License, October 2018. 

This means the home boarding environment has been thoroughly checked by a Cornwall Council Inspector regarding health & safety, food storage, exercise routines and sleeping arrangements, for example. 

Professional Dog Walking Insurance

Your dog’s wellbeing is top priority to me, and accordingly I have comprehensive dog walking insurance provided by Petplan Sanctuary.

Canine First Aid Training


In 2018 I refreshed my knowledge about First Aid for Dogs. I hope I will never need the skills I have learned! My Van is also equipped with a  Canine First Aid Kit.
