Somerset Walkers is celebrating 29 years in the business.
My name is Haydn Bennett and I am the founder of Somerset Walkers. It started out as me in my shed creating my own Starting Box to give my own dogs a competitive advantage on the track. After trial and error I perfected the thing and saw the results not long after. Swanky’s Best was the greatest of my success stories, I trained her myself with the Quick start Box and she won in the country and city.
Thinking of the bloodlines of Greyhounds and wondering if it was just in their blood to jump out of boxes, I decided to give it a go with my Rotti “Shredder” and he jumped out of that box like a Greyhound after a few goes. So it just goes to show you that the Quick start Box could be a handy tool for those dogs that are a little slow out of the box or may need to get used to it outside of the track.
Then after much thought in my office, I started dreaming up new ideas. One of these ideas grew into the 2 dog trailer, which then grew into the 4 dog, then the 6 dog, then the 8 dog and finally into the 10 dog trailer.
After mastering the trailers, I saw a need for other things such as the Weighing Scales and Draglures.
So it has been a long 29 years and the experience I have gathered over this period has given me the utmost confidence in my work as I have personally seen the results, and heard success stories from my customers.
Here’s to the coming years for Somerset Walkers. The brand you can trust.
