Dog Walkers & Sitters Association

"Our dogs are one of the family. With pet theft out of control, bite incidents up 34% and terrifying news stories concerning dog walkers, it's more important than ever that this growing industry has an organisation that stands for safety and quality. Our chosen dog walker really needs to know what they're doing, and I need to have complete confidence in them".
Far too many alternative sites, directories and platforms with huge numbers of listed service providers, are all about making money, without a care in the world for quality, qualifications, insurance or security. We aim to inspire excellence among canine professionals, and confidence in customers and members alike. Setting new standards of safety and training, the DWSA hopes to make a real difference to the dog walking and sitting industry. It's vital that properly trained, insured and DBS checked dog walkers and sitters sign up to the DWSA. We need one place that the public can trust. That's why we're a free service, funded by the British College of Canine Studies.

How does it work?

DWSA are proud to partner with Yellow Dog UK

Yellow Dog UK promotes awareness and understanding of dogs who need space, also known as “yellow dogs”. These are dogs that may be nervous, in training, recovering from an injury or illness, being rehabilitated or simply dogs that prefer to keep their distance from people and other dogs.

Yellow Dog UK provides a range of resources and information for dog owners, including guidance on how to manage reactive dogs and a directory of sponsors that support the yellow dog cause. We offer a range of products, such as yellow vests, leads, lead covers, lead flags etc, to help dog owners signal to others that their dog needs space.  Our aim is to help increase awareness and understanding of dogs who need space. By educating dog owners and the public we hope to create a safer and more harmonious environment for dogs and their human companions.
