A Bit About Me..
Greyt Escapes was founded by myself, Rebecca Knox as a part-time venture but is rapidly growing. I was born in Lancashire but grew up on small-holdings in North Wales. I was always surrounded by wildlife and animals large and small so I have a wealth of experience with pet, show and breeding dogs, horses, ponies, cats, birds and other small animals. My own fur family currently consists of two dogs, ex-racer and rescue Greyhounds Douglas and Parker the German Shorthaired Pointer X Labrador who I have lots of fun running with! Until recently I also always had a horse.
Greyt Escapes is fully insured, I am DBS (police) checked and have qualifications in Pet First Aid as well as home studying modules in Canine Studies from Reaseheath College. In my spare time I volunteer on wildlife conservation projects and enjoy cycling, fell running and mountaineering.
Why Choose Greyt Escapes?
Greyt Escapes offer exclusive services that most other dog walkers out there don't offer. Firstly, all walks are GPS tracked and routes made available to owners at any time, so as well as being able to see where and how far your dog has walked, you can rest assured that your dog is getting the time you are paying for. My walks are followed up with pictures and or videos of your dog that can also be followed on Facebook or Instagram.
As well as the usual half hour or hourly walks in your local area that everybody does, Greyt Escapes also love to take dogs out for adventure pack walks in fields, valleys, hills and forests and offer half or full day weekend adventure hikes to picturesque and exciting locations. Your dog can go as an individual or group, on or off lead with your permission.
I also love running with dogs and using my own canicross equipment I am more than happy to run with your dog! This is often best suited to high energy or hard pulling dogs such as working or gundog breeds, however any breed is more than welcome to give it a try!
There are many people out there offering pet services so help you choose Greyt Escapes offer a no obligation 'meet and greet' usually lasting around 30 minutes. This helps us to get to know your pet's daily routine, provide the paperwork and gives you and your pet the chance to meet us and for you to ask any questions you might have.
