Welcome to World Wide Walkies!

Welcome to my blog about our travels BC (Before Canines) and AD (After Dogs) – with a bit of practical advice thrown in.

Although I wouldn’t say that we go where no van has gone before, we like to get off the beaten track, into nature and well away from the crowds.

Give it a read and if you are a blogger – PLEASE tell me about your blog!

And if you are one of the wonderful people who follow my blog, THANK YOU! Your support and encouragement means everything.

In Praise of World Wide Walkies

Brilliantly written and never fails to make me laugh! Photos of the doggies are cuteness overload! Helen 

“I’m loving your blogs Jackie, so well written and amusing. In addition, for many people, the information about travel with pets, pursuing Bailey caravans for the shortfalls of their products and how to remove snow balls from the belly of a dog, is invaluable.” Elaine 

You have absolutely got to write a book…. I have never met anyone who writes like you . Even your blog about toilets was a joy to read. Nicola

Jackie makes it hilarious; the dogs are just gorgeous; photos are amazing. Love these guys and the fact they have dared to be different. The pups have certainly experienced so much more than any other dog I know for sure, only wish they could talk 😂or have their own blog. Love and luck to you all. Julie
