Hi, I’m Liz McCormick and Theo and Friends was founded by me. I can help you come home to a happy, relaxed and well exercised dog.

I work in Newcastle upon Tyne, Gateshead and the surrounding areas and offer Dog Adventure Treks and Mini Adventure walks for your dog. I also provide a Small Pet Visit service to take care of your smaller furry friends.

Having my own pets, I understand the difficulties and worries we all face to make sure our pets are cared for when we can’t be around. Let me help you!

I have a great love of animals and I’m dedicated to providing a service to my clients to look after your pets in the way that youwould. I make sure that they stay safe and I will adapt my behaviour to your dog’s needs. I am keen to use positive reinforcement techniques. These are enjoyable for the dog and developing my relationship with them.

I believe that a happy pet requires physical as well as mental stimulation and I have designed my Dog Adventure Treks and Mini Adventure Walks with this in mind.

If your pooch is particularly active, then a tailor-made Dog Adventure Trek could be exactly what you’re looking for. Taken to various seaside and country locations, your dog will explore and socialise in a group of up to 4 dogs. It won’t all be socialising though – as well as fun games, your dog will engage in scent work and parkour to keep their minds alert!

For our furry friends who like to take life at a slower pace, why not try a Mini Adventure Walk. These walks are less physically and mentally demanding for your dog but still have plenty of interaction with a bit of adventure thrown in for good measure.

If you have a smaller pet who requires feeding or a bit of company whilst you are at work or away, then my Small Pet Visit service could be the solution. I will visit your pet up to twice a day to feed and water them. I will also spend time engaging in play, games and snuggles.
