Barry is a very active guy. Not only does he (along with his wife Julie) run a UK-based home-based dog kennel called Urban Mutts where they watch, walk, and care for dogs while you’re away… but he is also The Dog Jogger. What!? Yes, a dog jogger. Barry will exercise your dogs by bringing them with him on his daily (!) run. Each run is with a pack in local parks for one hour, covering 3-5 miles (6-8km) cross country. Got a boxer who’s bonkers? A collie who’s crazy? Barry will wear them out. It wears me out just looking at the photos on his site.

Thanks to reader Maryam, who uses Barry’s services for her dog!
