Barbara Kelly


I’m Barbara and this is my best friend, Betty my Jack Russell Lurcher cross. I provide a professional dog walking service in Darwen, Hoddlesden, Hollins Bank, Mill Hill, Tockholes and the surrounding areas.

Me and my dogs

I’ve had a life long love affair with dogs and Betty is my latest side kick in a long line of much-loved family pets. I can’t imagine my life without dogs playing a huge part.

 My Digs for Dogs Business

I spent most of my career working in factories and delivering goods across the country. I knew the time had come for a total change in direction, when a friend recommended Digs for Dogs and I knew it was something that I would just love to do. I adore dogs and being outdoors all day and I wanted to spend more time with Betty – so this was just the opportunity I was looking for. I can’t believe I get paid for something I love to do!

I operate dog walking rounds in Darwen, Hoddlesden, Ewood Park and surrounding areas. Usually, I will be out and about walking around Entwistle Reservoir, Jack Keys Lodge, Whitten Park, Darwen Tower and around the Darwen countryside. I pride myself on my service and will always try and help customers out and go the extra mile where I can.

Dog walking

As a 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 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.

Please give me a call on 07725 364603 and I’ll get straight to work.

Reviews about Barbara Kelly

We have one tired puppy now!

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! 
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!
The best service we could wish for!

We have been using Digs for Dogs for dog walking and home boarding for the last 2 years or so, each time it’s the best service we could wish for! Our dog Bailey loves going out for his walks with Digs for Dogs. We receive regular photos and update from the daily walks, including who else in the gang was walking that day and where they went on their adventure! We are now thinking of making Baileys walks a regular thing (even though we don’t technically need to!) because he enjoyed being out with his dog mates so much! The home boarding service is also just as fantastic for when we go on our holidays. Thank you so much to Digs for Dogs for taking such great care and interest in our little B! You are such a great help and nothing is ever too much trouble.
