Canis Central provides dog walking to Tunbridge Wells and the surrounding areas, as well as dog grooming. Canis Central is run by Viggo Marshall, a dog walker and dog groomer in the Tunbridge Wells, Kent area. Viggo has had a passion for dogs all his life, finally getting his own dogs in 2012: Lupo, a Jack Russell x Chihuahua and Nero, a Doberman. He soon realised that dog walking and dog grooming was his real calling and something he wanted to pursue as a full-time career. He has completed a City & Guilds Level 3 qualification to become a professional dog groomer, and has been grooming and walking ever since he left his managerial hospitality job in 2015.

He also has a background in photography, which shows through his Instagram photos – he loves getting interesting shots of dogs in action that show what a fantastic time they’re having! His favourite place to walk is Hargate Forest, and he loves walking in all kinds of weather – yes, really!

Canis Central is determined to provide the best quality, care and service in both dog walking and dog grooming. This extends to Viggo having a good knowledge of dog behaviour and training, which he uses on a day-to-day basis when walking with the pack. Viggo’s number one priority is that all dogs are well looked after from the minute he picks them up to the minute he drops them off. This means plenty of attention, play and interaction on a dog walk, and making sure the dogs he grooms feel secure and happy in a calm and controlled atmosphere. All so they have the best experience possible!

All potential clients are offered a free consultation for you to meet Viggo, and for Viggo to meet you and your dog. This is to go over the finer points and so your pooch can get to know him a little bit before he undertakes any job.

Areas Canis Central serves are: Tunbridge Wells, Rusthall, Groombridge, Speldhurst, Eridge and all areas within a reasonable (10 minutes or so) drive from Tunbridge Wells.
