My name is John Stanford and I am British by birth and live in Portland, Maine with my American wife, Nora and my American dogs, Jessie and Nigel. I walked a select band of dogs and and cared for an eclectic group of pets on the Upper East Side in Manhattan since January 2007 to 2014 and since moving to Maine, I bring the same care and expertise to pets in the Portland area.

It's a family affair! My sister Angela has her own dog walking business based in Epsom, Surrey in the UK. That's her dog Pup the Jack Russel in the picture on the right. She and her husband Rob have been trading as "Walking Woofers". Click here for a taste of dog walking UK style!
