Ruth Ormerod


I’m Ruth and I live in Bury with my family. I provide a professional dog walking service in Bamford, Heywood, Fairfield and the surrounding areas.

My Digs for Dogs business

I had always loved animals and had just finished my honours degree in Equestrian Management and Development, based on animal psychology and behaviour. Animal welfare is something I am hugely passionate about and studied in great detail for my dissertation. I absolutely adore dogs and have always dreamt of working with animals and operating my own business. After meeting Debbie, other members of the team and franchisees, who are all so positive and love their jobs, I just knew I wanted to join Digs for Dogs and make this business my future!

Dog walking

As a previous dog owner myself, I know that for your dog to stay healthy and happy, a daily walk is essential. I understand how difficult it can be to find the right care for your precious pooch while you are working during the day

All of the dogs I walk are always truly loved and cared for and I do everything I can to find out about your dog’s individual needs to plan the perfect walking schedule. Some dogs love to walk in a pack, racing around in the fresh air with their doggy friends – whereas some dogs are require the extra attention of a solo walk.

Whichever best suits your pooch, I will make sure they have plenty of exercise and plenty of fun and then I will return them warm, dry, and ready for a snooze.

I operate my dog walking rounds in Bamford, Heywood, Norden & Fairfield. I will be out and about around Ashworth Valley, Queens Park, Birtle and the surrounding countryside.

Nothing is too much trouble

Nothing is too much trouble

I can highly recommend the team at Digs for dogs. They have supplied a dog walking services for our two English Springer Spaniels when we have been on holiday for the past 3 years. They are friendly and professional and nothing is too much trouble. They are also very reasonable price wise. Thanks to the whole Digs for Dogs team, you do a great job!
We couldn't recommend them highly enough!

We would just like to say how pleased we are with Digs for Dog’s dog walking services. They have been brilliant with keeping up Alfie's training, and adapting to any special requests we had when our dog wasn’t very well recently. They are reliable and understand our dogs needs (which is needed with our energetic 1 year old!). We couldn’t recommend them highly enough!
We have one tired puppy now!

Fantastic dog walking service from Digs For Dogs! For two days they have looked after our 4 month old puppy Lola - who is a handful to say the least! They walked her, looked after her in her home and also did a bit of training with her and she's come back a much more obedient puppy! She also had the chance to socialise with other dogs and learn to be away from home! We have one tired puppy now! Thank you so much! We will definitely use the service again and recommend you to others!
