Dog Walker – About Us

Barktastic is run and owned by Samantha Wilson. Samantha is an avid animal lover and has studied animal related courses. She has received her HND in Animal Care & Management at Oatridge College, and decided to start up her own business with animals.

She has hands on experience with many animals including dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, reptiles, birds and more. Sam has 4 dogs (Des, Max, Foster and Angel), who she loves dearly and make her life much more joyable.

As a company, Barktastic offers a friendly & professional service to the local area, and can customise our services to suit you and your pets needs. Many people would love to have pets but don’t as they work long hours, even if you already have pets and work long hours at Barktastic we can help. At Barktastic you are guaranteed a service which is reliable, confidential and friendly.

We offer a consultation visit free of charge in order for you to get to know both of us first. During this visit we can discuss the level of care you need, answer any questions you may have and take thorough details of your requirements to complete the relevant paperwork. We are fully insured and police checked for your piece of mind.

With her HND she has had hands of experience looking after animals, and caring for their exact needs.

Here are just a few of the subjects she has covered:

  • Companion Animal Nutrition
  • Animal Welfare
  • Health and Disease
  • Animal Handling and 1st Aid
  • Animal Behaviour
  • Reptiles and Amphibians
  • Customer Care
  • Drugs and Medicines
  • Animal Nursing: Theatre Practice

Samantha has had a wide range of experience working with animals, to name a few she has worked at Almond Valley Heritage Centre, and Oatridge College Small Animal Unit.
