Caring for your dog in a safe and positive way

Bryony Tompkins


I live in Cheltenham with my family and lab/terrier cross, Florence and have been running Cotswold Hound since 2014


I've always loved dogs, my earliest memories being playing with a litter of Newfoundlands pup's in Scotland where my relatives fed them porridge and eggs for their breakfast!

I set up Cotswold Hound to provide the best care and support for dog owners with our approach being based on exercise, enrichment and engagement  

I manage a carefully handpicked team of experienced dog walkers and home boarding families in Cheltenham and Gloucestershire who are first aid trained and fully insured

We pay attention to getting to know the needs of individual dogs

Walking groups are built on harmonious packs of no more than 4 dogs and care is taken to match the dogs to the right home stay environment for their temperament and age

Our team and clients benefit from the support of our in-house dog trainer and behaviourist who helps to support and motivate your dog in the most positive way possible.



Cotswold Hound have been walking my 2 Vizsla’s for a few years now. The boys are always so excited when the walker arrives and they come home having been well exercised. Not easy to wear out two young Vizsla’s! 

I would highly recommend their service. Bryony is reliable and accommodating when my plans have changed. I feel confident that my boys are in good hands when out walking with Cotswold Hound.

I have been equally happy with the boarding services provided at Cotswold Hound. Bryony has always placed the boys with a suitable family where they have been treated as one of the family.
