Tracy Franklin, affectionately known by her clients as Aunty Muddy, is the founder of Muddy Puddles Dorset in 2011 and has lived in

Aunty Muddy Muddy Puddles Dorset The Blandford Dog Walker

Blandford for over 30 years.  Brought up in Blandford with a house, shed and field full of animals; Tracy’s first rescue Lurcher was with her for 16 years.  Nowadays you will find by Tracy’s side her young rescue, Luli Saluki, while her horse, Ellie, lives in luxury nearby. Tracy has built the business on customer service and is known locally as The Blandford Dog Walker – even though she looks after horses, cats and all sorts of pets, as well as dogs.  She believes that all animals should be given 5 star, individual care, love and attention and that owners should be kept fully informed of all that their animal enjoys whilst in our company.  All those who work for and those who work with Muddy Puddles Dorset are Canine First Aid Qualified, in accordance with The Veterinary Surgeons Act 1966.

Ed Tory, affectionately known as Uncle Ed, joined Muddy Puddles Dorset full time in 2021. Ed was lucky enough to be brought up on a farm in Bryanston

with dogs, cats, horses and cows!  Ed has lived in the local area all his life and knows the rights of way further afield in Dorset like the back of his hand, perfect for dog walking adventures.    Ed’s family continue with the sight hounds they favoured when he was younger, although Ed now has a Jack Russell Terrier, Bert, (who is a girl) (yes, really) and keeps him on his toes.  Ed absolutely adores the dogs in his care, there is nothing that makes him happier than exploring the North Dorset countryside outside of Blandford with his Muddy Gang in tow.  Ed is Canine First Aid Qualified, in accordance with The Veterinary Surgeons Act 1966.
