A little about us

Hello, my name's Ellen and I'm the owner of Happy Trails dog walking! Based in Inverness, I'm excited to be able to turn something I love into a career.

My love for animals big and small started from a young age but I've always had a special place in my heart for dogs! Walking my dog Bracken, friends and family's dogs and also helping out at the nearby Munlochy Animal Aid on Sundays became my new hobby. Having bagged my first munro aged just 8 I became hooked, spending as much time as I can out walking and exploring.

Our Happy Trails van is kitted out with professional, safe, individual cages and is air conditioned so your dog can travel in ultimate comfort! Our walks include a full hour of walking as we choose to exclude travel time in order to give your dog maximum walk and play time in the woods, by the river for a swim and to generally have lots of fun!


After burning off all that energy, we'll head back to our van for some fresh water and a treat (if permitted) then towel dried if needed (It's the Highlands after all so more than likely!). Your dog will never be dumped back home and we will always make sure they are settled and have fresh drinking water.

Happy Trails is a friendly and reliable service where I am fully insured and disclosure checked. I have also completed a 'dog first aid' course to ensure your own is with somebody safe and capable.

If you have any questions or queries, please feel free to contact and ask!
