About Team Dog
Dog Walking & Day Care in Southampton

Our goal at Team Dog can be summarised as ‘dog-owning made easy’. We aim to help the hard-working dog owners in the Hampshire area get their confidence back when walking their high energy and very active dogs. Our team will help you reconnect with your dog and start enjoying their walks again.
Established in 2017, Team Dog is pleased to confirm all our approaches are force-free, where trust and relationships are central to our support.
Rob had a 24-year career in social care, working with people with learning disabilities who displayed a range of challenging behaviours. Starting as a Support Worker and ended up as Chief Executive, which was hugely rewarding but budgets were cut and demands grew.
When the opportunity for a change presented itself, he jumped at the chance to take the skills acquired and bring them to the world of canine care.
Taz is a talented and patient dog groomer of many years’ experience, who’s love of dogs is infectious. Her strongest skill is calming the most nervous of dogs while she works with them effortlessly on the grooming table, amazingly she can reassure the dog’s owner at the same time.
Her hands-on training developed her into a traditional groomer with a preference of styling the dog as per its breed standard. Taz’s scissor work is exceptional and she is able to work her magic on almost any dog, she has a keen eye for detail and has often been noted as a perfectionist by many of our customers.
Taz has been part of Team Dog for less than a year and has successfully developed a client base of over 130 dogs which is growing week on week.
Rob has been fantastic with our golden retriever dog Poppy- right from the earliest puppy training through to taking her now for daily vigorous walks. His advice and interest in helping us achieve a healthy, sociable and (generally) obedient dog have been invaluable. Always punctual, business like and trustworthy. Poppy adores him!
Team dog has been walking our dogs for just over a year now. The dogs definitely enjoy their walks with both rob and taz. They often send pictures of the dogs adventures with their new buddies. Which is reassuring they are having a time of their life. And in safe hands
My dog Annie can be a little nervous but Taz at Team Dog is excellent with her. She does a great job of keeping her calm and happy whilst she is being groomed. The end result of the grooming is fantastic too, Annie still looks like herself but just much more tidy! I would highly recommend!
