My name is Ryan and I've lived in Blairgowrie all my life. Leaving school I decided that I wanted to mix my passion of caring for my dogs with my work - so I setup Licks n Sticks.
I setup my own business over a year ago working with a booking agency to provide a professional dog walking service in Blairgowrie, making the decision that I wanted to work for myself, and there would be nothing better than working with dogs. Being brought up with dogs has given me a lifetimes experience of dog ownership, and I have worked hard to gain knowledge to enable me to reliably and safely walk dogs for my clients.
I'm lucky enough to own 2 dogs of my own, Lucy and Tara- a black lab and a sprollie who are featured all over my website. I take great pride in caring for my dogs and the dogs I care for. From doing group walks to home visits, every dog I see I treat as my own.
I know that every animal is unique and precious and will use all my experience and knowledge to ensure I build a strong bond with your pet and give them just the care they need to keep them happy and healthy. It was always my dream to work with animals and from that dream, this service was born.
what my clients say
Ryan at Licks n Sticks does an outstanding job looking after my dog whist I’m away at work for long days. I know I can trust him to look after Ben my Cavapoo. Ryan has done home visits for over 3 years for me now and I can always tell when I return home that my Benny boy has been well looked after! Thanks Ryan!
Ryan at Licks n Sticks does a fantastic job looking after my wee chap Angus! He takes great care in looking after our cherished family member and I couldn’t ask for more from a dog walker. I know Ryan loves dogs and I trust him to look after such an important member of my family. Thanks Ryan!
