Roxy Bird

Hi I'm Roxy a retired local police officer. My passion and life are my dogs and I hope to extend that to your pet.

Brian Bird

Hello I'm Brian. I have been involved with dogs for over 20 years and currently own three. I am a retired fire officer and currently enjoying life in Northumberland.

About Happy Doggie

Roxy and Brian reside in the village of Rennington, some 4 mile from Alnwick. They are both retired having held professional posts in the police and fire services.

“We currently own 3 dogs, Charlie a black Labrador retriever, Tilly a welsh Springer and Darcie a red and white border collie. Our love for dogs started some 20 years ago when we were privileged to own 5 beautiful boxer dogs. I would regularly be seen at dog show events and qualified on two separate occasions to show at Cruffs.”

Happy Doggie is a fully insured and CRB checked company. We also have K9 first aid certification

Our mission

Our aim is to provide a safe and enjoyable walk or visit for your pet. Having recently retired we are well aware that working full time and having pets can be difficult to manage at times. As a pet owner you need someone reliable, trustworthy and more importantly someone who your dog bonds with. We can offer all of these here at Happy Doggie.

Happy Doggie has an accredited K9 first aid qualification. We are also both CRB checked for your safety and security.

We have public indemnity insurance and our crated Transport vehicle is fully insured to carry pets.

Both Roxy and Brian are members of the British Fly Ball association and were members of Northumberland dog training club run by Jackie Hall. This is where two of our dogs both completed their good citizen awards.

We joined a Newcastle based fly ball club some 4 years ago and are now members of Karma Kanines based in South Tyneside run by Leanne Hyde. We compete with all three dogs and travel up and down the country most weekends with our caravan in tow.
