The Confident Dog is a specialist dog-walking, pet-sitting and behaviour consultation service built for and around your pets.  

Whether it's walks, cuddles or a trip to the vet, we can help keep your precious pooch or cuddly kitty happy and healthy during those times you need to be elsewhere. And if it's behaviour advice you need, we use only reward based, scientifically proven training methods. A committed team of absolute animal adorers we cover Hackney, Dalston, Haggerston, Stoke Newington and surrounding areas. 

We also love exploring and will report back through our blog. You can find all the best dog-friendly cafes, restaurants and walks in London. Plus we look at the latest and greatest scientific research taking place in the world of animal behaviour. Check back to see what's hot, and what's not, in cat care and dog training today.   



The Confident Dog loves walks. And so do we! A fully insured, professional service, we walk in Clissold Park, Abney Park Cemetery, Hackney Downs and the Lea Valley. Once we get to know one-another, your dog can walk on- or off-lead, whichever you prefer. And we like to keep clean, so we always adhere to the bag it and bin it policy using biodegradable poop-bags.

Daycare & Boarding

Let your dog spend the day with us. We take care of your dog in our home so they get all the luxuries and attention they deserve while you're at work or on holiday. We have beds, toys and the very best treats. And if they're not tired from their walk, there's friends to play with when we get back too.  


Work days, busy days, holidays... if you're out-and-about with no time to spare let us pop in to see your furry family members. We do 30min, 60min or overnight stays in your home so you can relax and enjoy your time away knowing your pets are happy too.  

Behaviour consultation

Our one-to-one behaviour consultation can help with all manner of ill-mannered pets. From barking and lunging to peeing and pulling, no doubt we'll have seen it all before. And we'll work with you and your dog on a tailor made plan to help get the very best out of your dog.  

Not sure if it's for you? Well it is always easier to deal with problem behaviours before they become habit. So if you spot something you're not sure about, get in touch for a no obligation chat. You don't have to wait until it gets out of hand. 


Yes it's true, The Confident Dog loves cats too! And we'll always reserve some special cuddle time just for them. So if you're going on holiday and know your cat would prefer to stay home, get in touch to arrange a daily visit.
