We offer doggy day care and socialisation for puppies and adult dogs alike. In addition to the day care service we provide pick up and drop off’s from your home*. This service operates between 8am and 9.30am and again from 4.15pm to 5.30pm. Between 10am and 4pm you are more than welcome to come to Rowden Lane, Hampsthwaite to do your own drop-off and collection.
We recognise that your dog is an individual, so we have created an environment that caters to individual needs. We make the most of integrating dogs within different size groups and have engagement activities for socialisation and stimulation. We have heated stables for your dogs to quietly relax and snooze indoors away from the wind and cold of the mid-winter months particularly! We also have access to a lovely stream for the dogs to take a dip in when the weather becomes too hot!
We have strict entrance criteria, and only accept friendly, social dogs, that have at least one fixed day per week. This ensures that we can build a bond with your dog and that your dog will be familiar and friendly with their pals and their carers.

The welfare of our canine clients is paramount. We realise that the responsibility of being in charge of other people’s family pets is high, so we provide an environment that is safe for all.
This includes strict entry requirements which are essential for good doggy day care dynamics, such as:
Katy has looked after our nervous old English sheepdog for a couple of years now both for walking and boarding/day care. She is always happy to help and looks after our dog as if she was her own. Highly recommended service with a smile!Louise Moss
Katy looks after my dog Baxter two or three days a week (plus the odd weekend) and he loves it there! I know he gets great walks and loves socialising with the other dogs. Katy has been very flexible with days/times. Would wholeheartedly recommend.Claire Byers
My ‘puppy’ is now a year old and has been walked by Katy since a small puppy. Betsy loves going to Katy’s! I’ve had other dog walkers which were fine but Katy goes the extra mile. Katy was recommended to me by one of those happenstance chats with another dog owner. I’m so pleased I bumped in to her that day as now Betsy, goes to doggy day care once a week. She spends all day running around with Katy and the other dogs up Otley Chevin and various other places. I work full time in a demanding job so I rely on the flexibility that Katy gives me and Betsy. Katy takes the dogs to different places as she loves the outdoors herself and likes to keep it interesting! Katy is lovely around all the doggies and her own doggy, Reli is lovely and well behaved. When Betsy gets home she just flops out as she’s been well exercised – she’s a working cocker spaniel so that’s saying a lot! Look no further – you’ve found the one to take care of your pooch when your at work or on holiday!Mhari Byrne
My minature daschund has been going to Kate at March of the K9’s for 3 years. I have to say Kate is the best dog minder I have ever had. Minnie loves her and loves going! The day care she has is superb, Kate has been very flexible and is extremly reliable. I would fully recommend her services as the best in Leeds.Melanie Rogers
Katy offers a fantastic service, the dogs seem to agree!Adam Robinson
Having to find a dog sitter at late notice. Kate was so good and accommodated for my dog. He was so happy there and would highly recommend her.Shiela A Fard
Happy New Year to Katy and all dogs @ March of the K9’s….Katy is so dedicated to the business and great with all animals, our dog Spangle loves her,as do we!!Hope 2014 is prosperous and exciting.Helen Christodoulides
Katy and her March of the K9s is a wonderful dog-walking service. Our dog Bryn goes into mourning on the days when she’s not allowed to go walking with Kate. Oh the adventures she has! Kate is a brilliant person, and we would trust our dog with no lesser being!Lou Waite
Our Springer Oscar loves going to Kate. He’s only 6 months and is relatively new to our family. I work away a lot and the thing I love most about march of the K9s other than knowing he’s having a great time walking with his doggy pals is getting photo or video updates during the week when I’m missing him! Cannot recommend Kate enough!Sophie Cattell
Katie has looked after my two dogs for years. They lead the life of Riley at home, allowed in the bed, on the furniture, so the thought of leaving them in kennels when we go away was out of the question. They get tons of exercise when they go to Katie’s and end up fitter than when they left. They also get a lot of personal attention and they’re both very fond of her, and always slightly ambivalent about coming home, which means I have to step up my game, I think! Katie didn’t fall into this job by accident, she chose to do it, leaving behind a corporate career and she obviously loves dogs.
She also has a good number of safe, away from the road, walking places to take dogs that even I wasn’t aware of. And I’m just about to take them to one of them, if they’ll only get off the keyboard!
Having been taking our two dobermans, George and Lulu to Kate for nearly 2 years now we are very happy to continue to be loyal clients. My two are always so excited to see Kate, sometimes I think they’d rather live with Kate than come home to us – the amount of fun they have with the other dog boarders and all the great places they visit on their walks. Kate youre an amazing dog walker/boarder, thanks for taking such good care our two rugrats xxVena and Nick
