A Little Bit About Me
With a lifetime's experience of dogs, horses and everything in between, I'm never happier than when I'm out on muddy walks or riding out in the wonderful Dorset countryside. I grew up with all sorts of creatures great and small, from wonderful rottweilers to pocket-sized yorkies; grandoise hanovarians to naughty welsh mountains; and cuddly chinchillas to inquisitive gerbils! You name it, we had it, so I've been very lucky to have never known a life without wonderful pets! They're my happy place and having spent so much time with them, they've always been intrinsically linked to my own personal fitness and mental well being; and it's for this reason I started FidoFit!
In addition to my years of experience, I hold qualifications in animal care, first aid and dog walking; and am also a qualified personal trainer and canicross trainer. For added peace of mind, I'm fully insured and DBS checked. What this means for you, is that you and your dog (and other pets if required) are in safe hands. I'm able to provide a top-notch and very professional service that not only ensures your faithful hound is well looked after and getting his daily dose of exercise but also gives you the opportunity to join in and reap the benefits too!
From making new friends to improving any negative behaviour, to developing an even better bond with your dog and improving your lifestyle, there are many, many benefits for you both! And it's not just limited to you! FidoFit! offers a unique opportunity for your other family members to get involved and the kids will love it too!
You can find out more on the following pages or read below what our lovely friends have to say. Alternatively, if you have any questions and just want an informal chat, then please pick up the phone, and give me a call.
Scooby and I look forward to meeting you soon!

What People Say!
Liz, Meg's Mum
Excellent! Had a great canicross session this morning learning the techniques with the new kit for Meg and myself. So useful to be able to try different sizes of harness before buying. We definitely won’t be the fastest but we’ll be very comfortable on our running adventures! Lovely relaxed session and plenty of time to try out new kit & tips.
Richard, Scooby's Dad
Having known Kathy for years, I can highly recommend her services. She has a great relationship and affinity with her clients, particularly the four legged variety! Her willingness to go above and beyond to provide the best service are second to none.
The combination of both energy and enthusiasm are contagious and her services offer something different that you and your dogs will love her for it!
Tamsin, Muttley's Mum
Kathy is wonderful and we completely trust her with Muttley. He loves his walks with her and Scooby! I completely trust her knowledge and training with regards to fitness and canicross and absolutely recommend her!
Kerry, Digby's Mum
I did the canicross taster session earlier today with Kathy and absolutely loved it, as did Digby! Kathy was really patient and explained everything from the kit to the commands, I would definitely recommend to anyone thinking of giving Canicross a go!
Thank you Kathy ☺️
