We are Allison and Jeff and we are a husband and wife team. We have over 30 years experience in caring for dogs.
We have 2 resident dogs. Olly, a 12 year old Springer Spaniel and Rodney a 6 month old Cocker Spaniel. We sadly lost Mac our Cocker Spaniel in February 2023 💔. Olly is very well socialised and will welcome new friends, whether that be in a dog walking group or home boarding as a guest with us! He is also very good at teaching the younger dogs some doggy manners if they misbehave! Rodney has settled in really well and is a typical, playful spaniel who loves to meet new friends.
We also have 2 teenage boys, Dan and Will who are both very knowledgeable around dogs.
AJ Dog Care was established in 2015 and since then we have gone from strength to strength. We both work in the business full time and we run every aspect of it between the 2 of us so you can rest assured that you will receive top quality care for your dogs when they are with us!
We both deal with multiple dogs on a daily basis and love to see the dogs in a group situation enjoying themselves with their friends. If your dog is not confident in doing this or you would simply prefer a one to one dog walker then we can help you with this too.
We cover Jarrow, Hebburn and Bill Quay for our walking service.
