Collin Gartshore


I’m Collin, I provide a professional dog walking service in Castleford, Normanton, Pontefract and the surrounding areas. I live in Normanton with my wife Sara, step son Daniel and our Springador, Mitch.

Me and my dogs

I’m a life-long dog lover and have been honoured to have had many different canine companions over the years. I’m at my happiest when I’m outdoors with our lively boy Mitch – and I mean lively!

My Digs for Dogs business

I worked the last 15 years in the financial industry. I enjoyed my job but it was long hours and very stressful and so the time came when I needed a change. I found out about Digs for Dogs and couldn’t believe I had the chance to combine my love for dogs and the outdoors with a new career. I really do have the best job in the world.

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 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.

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!
