Who are Project Pet

Here at Project Pet we not only care for your beloved pets, we also care just as much for the environment too! We use our electric vehicles which produce zero emissions, to transport your pet too and from their walks.

We provide professional pet services such as group dog walking & doggy adventures. We offer additional services such as pet sitting, and electric pet taxi.

We believe as a business it is our duty to take action towards reducing our carbon paw-print to protect our only home, Earth. We have partnered with Ecologi to offset our emissions and become a climate positive workforce. By doing this we are currently planting 34 trees a month!

Our clients love that they are investing not only in their pets, but towards a sustainable planet.

Project Pet began back in 2015 as a local dog walking company, in Woodley, Berkshire. The owner Daniel Fothergill has always been passionate about the natural world, but shocked at how humans were and still are destroying natural habitats, and pumping fossil fuels into the atmosphere, causing global warming.

After researching that nothing was being done in the pet care industry to help fight the climate crisis, the UK’s first eco-friendly dog walking company was created. We now use all electric vehicles to transport the dogs to and from their daily walks. We have also partnered with an organisation called ‘Ecologi’ to offset our carbon emissions as a workforce.

We are now a leading dog walking company in the Woodley area, and our goal is to be the leading pet care business in the UK, with sustainability at the forefront. Our slogan ‘Caring for your pet, and the planet’ will and always will be our mission statement.

Testimonials

Great dog walking company ..would highly recommend
My dog Alfie loves his walks at Project Pet! They send us photos and updates each day and Aflie gets a GPS tracker attached to his collar which gives me peace of mind.

Valerie Buttons - Alfie (Jack Russell)

Project pet have been fantastic with my dog Jessie! They are so quick to reply and great at finding a last minute slot for her. She has loved her walks and always enthusiastically greets them. Dan and his team have been so understanding of her nervousness and helped build her confidence and trust with other dogs. I love their app that shows me where she’s walked, photos, videos and comments on how she has gotten on. They are completely trust worthy and I would highly recommend them!

Maddy Hughes - Jessie (Mixed breed)

After contacting Daniel about walking our Dog we had a face to face visit where he met our puppy. Daniel is incredibly patient and very knowledgeable when it comes to dogs and gave us some really helpful advice. Really easy to book walks and get gps updates of the walk So you can see your dog having fun and socialising with other dogs which is a really cool feature. Should you need a trusted, friendly and reliable dog walker Project Pet is a must!

Jack Snow - Cooper (Cockerpoo)

Founder and Owner at Project Pet
I started Project Pet back in 2015, purely as a project after working at a local dog and cat kennel. I had gained previous experience working in pet shops, and even as a local dog warden! I’ve always been entrepreneurial since I can remember, starting side hustles as a kid such as washing cars around my housing estate where I lived with my parents.

After leaving the dog and cat kennel, I then started up Project Pet, a local dog walking company in Woodley. I have always been passionate about the natural world, but shocked at how humans were and still are destroying natural habitats, and pumping fossil fuels into the atmosphere, causing global warming. This made me realise I needed to do something about this, especially if I wanted a business that had longevity.

I decided to create the UK’s first eco-friendly dog walking company, using electric vehicles instead of fossil fueled vehicles. A lot of my inspiration actually came from Elon musk (CEO of Tesla motors) who has changed the way humans commute with electric vehicles.

We are now a leading dog walking company in the Woodley area, and my goal is to be the leading pet care business in the UK, with sustainability at the forefront. Our slogan ‘Caring for your pet, and the planet’ will and always will be our mission statement.
