Hi! I'm Heather,

a professional dog walker based on the Wirral


Take The Lead is a fully insured new dog walking business set up and run by Heather Wallington.

We offer dog walks tailored to your dog’s individual needs:

- Solo walks

- Socialising walks with other dogs

- On or off lead

- Pick-up and Drop-off Services

- Home visits


ALL Covid-safe (distancing, hand-sanitising, etc.)


I am responsible, trustworthy and adaptable.

The health and welfare of your pet is of foremost importance.

My pledge is to treat your dog as if it were my own.

I walk in all weathers.

I am also trained in first aid.

Contact me to discuss how we can tailor our walking to your dog's needs and yours.


Sue, from Heswall

'Heather and Dexter bonded immediately and are enjoying their walks together.  I look forward to the photos of Dexter that Heather sends to me whilst they are out and about. It makes me feel like I am walking with them.  Heather is a lovely, bubbly lady and it is obvious that she loves dogs! 

I highly recommend her.'


Anna, from Gayton

‘Heather has really bonded with my dog, Lola. Each week Lola is thrilled to set out on a new adventure together with Heather.’




I grew up with, and have always loved, dogs. My career as a classical musician over the last 25 years has taken me all over the world, including performances at Buckingham Palace and recording film scores for the Harry Potter series. 


My experiences of 2020/21 have made me realise that I want to work from home, enjoy my love of nature and, of course, dogs. In my professional dog walking this year I have made new friends, both canine and human - I walk in all weathers, and pledge to treat your dog as if it were my own.

I am also trained in First Aid.
