Hi! I’m Tim Dunton and I started UK Dog Transport in 2014 to help pet owners to move their dogs and cats safely around mainland UK.
I have done a lot of volunteering work for various pet rescue charities and have assisted with pet transport and rescue runs for the past 15 years. But when I bought my own van it eventually inspired me to take the plunge and launch my own company – and UK Dog Transport was born!
I am fully licensed and insured with ample dog handling experience, as well as being fully dog first-aid trained.
My services are available seven days a week, giving flexibility to my clients. I usually travel three days each week, though it can end being up to 15 hour days depending on where I am transporting to. The key goal is to ensure that the animals reach their destinations as safely and as comfortable as possible – they have air-conditioned pods in the van, and we take regular hydration and comfort stops.
UK Dog Transport still works closely with many pet rescue partners and Anne Lewis at the Lost Souls Sanctuary explains:
“Lost Souls Sanctuary use Tim because he is consistently reliable, very reasonably priced and above all he is wonderful with the dogs he transports and they always arrive in a calm state. We take in some of the most difficult dogs, many of which have been very problematic during the journey to the UK. It is a testimonial to Tim’s skills as a handler that he is able to calm them down.”
Lizzie White from Last Hope Rescue continues:
“Last Hope Rescue regularly use UK Dog Transport to carry our dogs and we have always found Tim to be reliable, efficient and friendly. Tim has, on more than one occasion, undertaken late night/early morning transport runs for us when needed in an emergency and no task has ever been too big or too small for him. We have no hesitation in highly recommending Tim for dog transports – a very reliable and safe pair of hands.”
If you have a pet that needs transporting, give me a call. I’m ready to help! – Tim Dunton.
