Based in the heart of Teignmouth, Wickham Walkies offer a small friendly approach to home dog boarding. we provide a professional standard of quality care giving your dog a home from home like feeling in a loving environment. After a short consultation over the phone you will be invited to bring your dog over to our home, we will discuss your dog's daily routine and needs to build a file to ensure we have all the information we need. Our aim is to walk your dog at least twice a day as we feel for most dogs this is the right amount to walk. If your dog require more/less we are more than happy to do so and can be discussed further when you visit. We venture out to lovely places such as parks, beach, forests and the rivers give your dogs a good amount of fun and fresh air!
Our home is very loving, comfortable and warm, we have toys for your dogs and we do ask that you provide any sleeping arrangements e.g. bedding with you, so that your dog feels more at home.
We love exercise! Taking your dogs out for walks is a joyous occasion, we venture to lots of different and exciting places, like haldon, and allover the countryside! We try to spend a good few hours walking per day to exercise your dog and to have a fun time. Obviously if your dog requires more/less time walking please let us know!
Health & Hygiene:
We at Wickham walkies take health & hygiene very seriously and care for your animals. they are kept in a safe enviroment under loving supervision and in a very secure garden. All we ask from you, the owner is to provide us with any special requirements or arrangements with health or dietary needs.They must also have their up to date vaccinations and inoculations including Kennel cough. They must also have had treatment for fleas and worms.

Reviews from Our Guests
Cannot praise Wickham Walkies enough. Very professional and caring. Christine inspired confidence from our fist contact. Our 10 year old labradoodle had so much fun during his stay amply evidence by all the Facebook photos posted during his stay ( such a lovely touch)
Thank you so much Chrissie

I have used Wickham Walkies for both daycare and dog boarding for about 2 years.
I had never had a dog before and wasn't expected the level of vetting initially but this level of professionalism has remained consistently ever since. Our dog Brutus absolutely loves it and he's a sensitive soul so I'm confident I'd know if he didn't. Chrissie is exceptional and a treasure of a find! I trust her explicitly which is something I never thought I'd say.
It's nice to leave him a home environment; it's well set up, house is exceptionally clean; doesn't smell doggy at all! which I think is a real testament to how hard she must work given how many dogs must be in and out, 7 days a week!
She's reasonably priced, reliable, consistent and posts pictures on Facebook which is lovely when we are away and feeling bad for leaving him. She treats him like he's on holiday too!
I really would say if I had any concerns but Chrissie consistently provides an excellent A grade service. This is a great example of how a doggy service should be run.

Our Boston Terrier Wilson has had two stays now. Before boarding Chrissie makes time to get to know your dog, we took him on a couple of walks with her before his first stay. Both times dropping him off have been stress free, Wilson happily walks in the house and is instantly at home. Christie gives regular updates either personally or by her Facebook group page (private page). I feel she genuinely loves all the dogs in her care and I wouldn't go anywhere else!
From Lynne Barton on
Honey stayed with Chrissie when we went away in May. Chrissie put up photos of what she was up to so we could see. She seemed to have great fun walking with the other dogs and swimming.
Chrissie invited us to visit and as Honey doesn't normally walk with other dogs invited us on a walk so she could see how she was with other dogs.
I would have no hesitation in leaving her with Chrissie again.
From Esther on
Our dog Rocco loves staying at Wickham Walkies, he always gets excited when he realises he is going with Chrissy which is great when I'm feeling guilty about leaving him. I receive regular updates about his day and the walks he's been on which is lovely as I can see he is enjoying his holiday just as much as we are!
From Rachael marment on
I would 100% recommend Wickham Walkies. Our dog Charlie loves going there. He comes back so tired after lots of walkies.
From Mel Cox on
If your looking for a home away from home your dog will never be happier .took our dog to stay with chrissy while we went on holiday when we collected him he wasnt even that bothered to see us which is a good thing he was still all over chrissy with 3walks a day he came back a much fitter and healthier dog we're so glad we found her the dogs are loved very much and well looked after hope she always has a space for jake would be gutted to have to find somewhere else .
From Heidi Legge on
Our golden retreivers Margo and Monty absolutely love going to stay with Chrissie at Wickham Walkies. As soon as I say "hoilday" they get excited. I know that wickham walkies takes great pleasure in having my dogs and they are looked after and cared for just as I would do myself. I know that Chrissie will help me out with day car at short notice, equally she takes bookings months in advance. My dogs come back happy and worn out as they have had so much fun. I can't recommend Wickham walkies and Chrissie enough.
From Donna may on
Our dog Evie has a fabulous time with Chrissie and I have every confidence in her care and knowledge. Having dogs to stay in her own home rather than a kennel is best option for us, and Evie has benefitted from mixing with other dogs.Chrissie is very accommodating with arrangements and Evie loves her!
From Cathy James on
I would highly recommend Chrissy for boarding, she is fantastic at what she does. She has just looked after my 18 month cocker spaniel who had a great time. She is brilliant with the dogs and give them plenty of love and exercise. After collecting Mollie yesterday afternoon she slept all evening she was so worn out from all of the fun she had. Her prices are very reasonable aswel and it gave me complete peace of mind when I went on holiday.
From Jackie Corbin on
Roxy stayed with Chrissy for a week whilst we were away on holiday. I was really nervous about leaving her, as its the first time we have left her. Chrissy kept us up dated all the time with lots of pictures of her on long walks with all her doggy friends. I would highly recommend Wickham Walkies! Thanks again Chrissy for having Roxy. ðŸ¶ðŸ¶ xxx
From Kerry hughes on
Trying to find doggy day care for my 5 month old springer 'Bilbo' was becoming a problem in my area as most of the people we went to see just didn't feel right for him or they couldn't fit in with my fairy needy time schedule ! I must say Chrissie has been amazing with everything from collections, last minuet doggy sitting, flexibility, communication and fabulous photos posted on Wickham Walkies Facebook site of the days fun! The integration with the dogs he walks with really has made a impact on the walks I have with Bilbo when around other dogs , his calm confidence is a real pleasure to see! Thank you Chrissie for all your help over the last 5 months!
From Matt wells on
Finding someone to take care of a young, exuberant and demanding Belgian Shepherd is a challenge. We are delighted to have found Chrissy at Wickham Walkies as our dog, Drew, gets all the fun, exercise and stimulation that he needs and is clearly cared for as if he was Chrissy's own dog. He is happy to be left and comes home fit, tired and happy.
Chrissy keeps in touch as much or as little as you need and we can relax knowing Drew is in safe hands.
From Rod & Carol Harbottle on
Our labrador Digger loves staying with Chrissy so much he doesn't want to come home. He recently had an operation and we had no worries leaving Digger with Chrissy, she looks after him as if he was her own. I can't recommend her enough.
From Jan Gillard on
Bonnie my cockapoo stayed with Chrissy for 16 nights in the summer whilst we were away.
I phoned a few pet sitting services before finding Chrissy, I knew as soon as I spoke to Chrissy that Bonnie would have all her needs met, Chrissy understood any concerns I had (Bonnie was only 9 months and hated being left allown!) Bonnie's routine was kept the same whilst with Chrissy, even down to her being allowed to sleep upstairs, as she does at home!! Chrissy gave us regular updates whilst we were away, which was lovely and Bonnie had a fantastic time.....she actually sulked for 5 days when we got her home!!
We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Chrissy to other dog owners. Bonnie can't wait for us to go away next year!
From Kirsty Wheway on
Marley loves visiting Chrissy. I needed someone I could trust to give him home from home care and Wickham Walkies provides over and above. Every visit is like a holiday for him. A professional and friendly service.
From Tania Vaughan on
Raymond has just got home from his stay with Chrissie.... He has come home as happy as the day we dropped him off... I was not happy taking him to a kennel so when we were recommended to Wickham Walkies I jumped at the chance as it's a home from home..... He was well looked after and walked loads which he loves....it was great seeing all the photos of him having a great time with all his new doggy friends on Facebook whilst we were in holiday as my daughter really missed him.. A really nice touch... ... I would highly reccomend.. And Raymond is looking forward to going back for another little holiday in October... Thankyou again Chrissie x
From Mel fowlis on
My 5yr old boxer Archie has just been with Chrissy for the third time this year he really enjoys going there with her he gets out the car and runs right over to her he haves a great time and meets lots of new doggy friends and we can go and enjoy our holidays knowing hes happy and looked after so well Chrissy really is an angel and we feel so lucky to have found her
From Glynis Edworthy on
We highly recommend Wickham Walkies,
It is a home from home, just what we were looking for our dog shadow. We had our holiday in the knowledge that shadow was being well exercised and cared for.
Chrissy you do a brilliant job, many thanks
From carol and chris hales on
Fifi has stayed twice now. She really seems to enjoy her visits and gets lots of good walks. Recommended!
From David on
Our border collie x kelpie Toby has been to stay over with Chrissie a couple of times now and we are so pleased with how she looks after him we have already booked all our holidays and days away for the year. Toby comes back tired and happy and he embarrasses us by pretending we are strangers when we go to pick him up. Would thoroughly recommend wickhamwalkies to anyone wanting quality care for their dog. Julie and mark

Toffee and Phoebe have just returned from their first visit which seems to have been a very successful short break away. It's great to have found You Chrissy and the dogs seem quite contented on their return. thank you and they will be returning for another break away In The autumn.
From Toffee and Phoebe on
Woody has stayed with Christina for three visits so far. She obviously has a total empathy with her visitors and Woody genuinely loves her. We are totally satisfied and confident with her care of our pet. Wonderful, wonderful, Wickham Walkies.
From Sue & Bob Blowfield on
Our dog "Scruffy" is very nervous around new people, Chrissie had the time and patience to gain his trust and confidence, now he can't wait for her to come and walk him. He was even happy enough to go for an overnight stay, something we could never have considered until we met Chrissie.
From Susan Hopkins on
Our English bull terrier Molly is an exuberant, high spirited 3 year old. When Christina agreed to take Molly into her home to board for a few days we were concerned how she would cope but we needn't have worried! From the start Christina reassured us and gave us confidence that they would be fine, and they were! Molly had obviously been very well looked after, been taken out for fun walks and was happy and calm when we arrived to pick her up. We were delighted when Christina said she would look after Molly in future so now we can relax when we go away. We can definitely recommend Christina and wickham walkies as a very friendly and competent service.
From Pauline and Rog Parke on
I've stayed with Chrissie twice now and I love it. She takes me out for loads of walks so much so that when I get back with my owners I'm exhausted in the nicest possible way. The last time I stayed I got to Chrissie's house and ran straight into the front room and made myself at home. I'd thouroughly recommend Wickham Walkies to any of my four legged friends. Paddy xx
From Paddy on
Leaving my 12 week old German Shepherd with Chrissie was the best decision I have made. From the very first phone call I knew my puppy would be in good hands And I was right. Dexter immediately warmed to Chrissie and what I loved was that she text me throughout the day to let me know how he was doing. You wouldnt get that from everyone. Dexter had constant attention throughout the day and plenty of exercise. With loads of love and care and a garden to play in and a trip to the park he was a very happy pup!! I wouldnt even think of going to anyone else next time I need someone to look after Dexter. Would highly highly recommend Chrissie to any one looking for pet care, not a single thing I can possibly fault. Thank you chrissie for your amazing service. Will definately be bringing Dexter back to you!!
From Sapna on
Maramaduke has stayed with Chrissie a couple of times now and he is always very please to stay there. He is a full grown golden Labrador with lots of energy and love to give. He always comes back well exercised, tired and happy. We would recommend Wickham Walkies to anyone with a pet.
From Mark & Penny on
I run a sweet shop called The Sugar Mill in Chudleigh and rely on Chrissie to walk Eric 3 times a week. Eric is always pleased to see her and this is a reflection of her love and passion for dogs. Eric has also had sleepovers and it is wonderful to feel I can go away knowing he is happy in his second home! Would recommend this service to anyone.
From Cathryn Lucas on
Wickham Walkies have been walking Loki for some time now. I can't recommend them enough. They are reliable and extremely flexible, and have been so good with fitting around our hectic lifestyle! Chrissie is really friendly and Loki loves her. He's not an easy dog at times and she has managed him beautifully. We wouldn't be without the service.
From Cassie on
We have used Wickham Walkies for our two dogs several times in the last year. We are delighted with the care our dogs get and so are they. Our collie likes Chrissie so much he's not to keen on coming home. We can say without doubt the best care they have ever had. Thankyou Chrissie
From Clive Shayler on
Edward (7 year old flat coated retriever) visits Chrissie regularly. He is always delighted to arrive - not a backward look towards me - and comes home afterwards happy and tired.
From Erica Steer on
We can't recommend Wickham Walkies highly enough!! Our 14 week old puppy, Chewie, stayed with Chrissie at Wickham Walkies at the end of October for 2 days. As Chewie was so young we were concerned about his needs especially his sleeping arrangements. Chewie was looked after incredibly well. Every need was catered for including his sleeping needs. He loved being there! It was playtime all the time & Chrissie was fantastic with him. I was able to contact Chrissie anytime to see how Chewie was & see what he had been up too. Chrissie also took photo's of him during his stay which she has given me a copy of. Chewie is going to spend a day at Wickham Walkies later in this week and we have already booked him in for a longer stay next May. Thank you Chrissie & keep up the good work!
