Andy
Walker / Founder

Since I can remember I’ve always had animals in my life! I was born in Auckland and grew up with dogs, cats, chickens, rabbits, guinea pigs, plenty of tropical fish, turtles – the list goes on! I use to love spending my school holidays working on a farm in Waihi. My first company, Guardians Dog Minding, has been delivering dog services since we opened our doors in 2005 and I have a wealth of knowledge in all things dog. Our goal has always been to provide exceptional customer service that is professional, customer focused, convenient and exceeds expectations.
