Would highly recommend Darren, he is very professional, reliable and truly passionate about animals. He has a great relationship with my pup and am happy to leave him in his very capable hands.
Can't say enough good things.


My dogs adored him

Used Darren's services quite a few times now. I highly recommend him. Such a great guy and my dog adored him from the moment he walked through the door. Working 13 hour shifts means I need help looking after my pooch and I feel completey at ease knowing Wilson's give a dog a bone is looking after my pooch!


Treated my dogs like one of his own

Had an unexpected meeting for work and was left with no one to look after my dogs as I would be out the house for too long for them to be alone. I had seen Darren's business tweeting that they believe dogs are happiest at there own home and they offered a service to check in on them etc. I met up with Darren for a chat that day and checked all credentials. Couldn't be happier with the service. The dogs loved him. I will recommend him to anyone who requires any sort of dog service. He treats your dogs like they were his own and once you meet him you know how much they mean to him
