Naomi Le Voi
Naomi is the company director. She was brought up in the Lake District and has always had a love of the mountains and of dogs. After gaining a first class honors degree in Adventure Tourism Management, she decided to set up Lakeland Dog Walker. Since giving birth to her first child, Isabelle, in May 2017, she concentrates on all the "behind the scene" work, however she really enjoys getting out walking with all the dogs with Isabelle and Finnley (baby number 2) lending a hand.
All bookings go through Naomi, so if you give us a ring or send us a message, you'll be talking to her.
Hannah is second in command and has been the full time dog walker in Cockermouth since April 2016. She has created some strong bonds with the dogs she walks. Owners are often commenting on how excited their dogs get when they hear her coming up the drive.
Hannah doesn't own a dog at the moment as she is in the midst of doing a barn conversion, but she can't wait to have a dog to call her own in the near future (most likely a liver & white Springer Spaniel called Burleigh after her favourite beach in Australia).
If you need to get hold of Hannah, her number is 07545566636
Miechelle joined the team in October 2018 on a part time basis but quickly became a full time Cockermouth team member as the dogs love her and she clearly enjoys her job.
Miechelle often has her sidekick with her on her dog walks: Tui the 2 year old Border Terrier.
Tui thinks she has hit the jackpot being around so many dogs all day.
If you need to get hold of Miechelle, her number is 07899868777
Bryan joined the LDW team in February 2018 and is the Keswick based dog walker. He has a lot of experience with animals of all sizes but he specialises in dogs and horses. He has volunteered at Calvert Trust Dog Training since he was about 2 years old so he has a wealth of knowledge about dog behaviour and training. Bryan has 2 dogs at home: Scott the Collie and Storm the German Shepherd.
If you need to get hold of Bryan, his number is 07403291357
Sam is the newest face in the LDW family having joined the team in March 2019. Like Miechelle, Sam started on a part time basis but quickly became a full time member of the team.
Sam concentrates on the village dogs around Cockermouth and will often take the dogs to the beach.
On the day's Sam isn't working as a dog walker, she'll be baking scrummy cakes and sweets as she also runs a cake company called Terry's Treats..
If you see Sam, she'll have Benny with her. Benny is a gorgeous collie who loves to play with his new doggy pals.
If you need to get hold of Sam, her number is 07766961875
The next generation of Dog Walkers
Being able to take our children and grandchildren with us on dog walks is a perk of the job
Isabelle is Naomi's daughter. She may only be 2 years old, but she has been out walking dogs since she was 5 weeks old. It's not surprising she took her first steps at 10 months old and her first word was "doggy".
Finnley is Naomi's Son. He is only a few months old but already, we can tell he is a dog lover. He sits in his pram or in the papoose and giggles away at the dogs running and playing with each other.
Gracie is Sams daughter. During school holidays she often comes out and helps Sam walk the dogs. She is a true LDW fan and is fantastic with the dogs and looking after Isabelle.
Harrison is Miechelles Grandson (I know, she doesn't look old enough to have Grandkids!). Harrison enjoys coming out in school holidays and loves giving the dogs nicknames.
The Dog Walkers Dogs
Being a dog walkers dog is like hitting the jackpot!
Lexi the Labrador is Naomi's first dog and the reason LDW now exists! If she's not out being pack leader for LDW, she's chief guide for her Dad's company: Lakeland Mountain Guides.
Bindi the Golden Retriever X Poodle is the newest addition to the Le Voi family.She's a real softie and loves nothing more than swimming in muddy muddles!
Benny is Sams Collie and he loves having a ball thrown for him. He's a lovely gentle pooch who plods along ahead of the pack, showing everyone which way to go.
Tui the Border Terrier is Miechelles four legged friend. She gets to ride shot gun in her special seat in the van. She joins in on all the walks and likes everyone to know she's boss.
