“We are delighted with the service Katie gives, she walks Holly every day of the week. Holly is always delighted to see her coming. Because Katie is so reliable this takes a load off our mind as Holly’s ‘Mum’ is wheelchair bound and can only take her on very slow walks whereas with Katie she has a good hour’s walk”

Elizabeth Lowson – Holly


“It is good to go away in the knowledge that the dogs, cats and house are in safe hands.  The animals are always delighted to see us on our return, but have clearly been very happy in our absence.  Katie makes taking trips a pleasure, rather than an anxiety”

Sue Hawkins, Blairs

“I know that when i am away on holiday whether it is for a weekend or 3 weeks my dogs are very well cared for in a homely environment and we can totally relax and enjoy ourselves.  Also Peggy who is such a worrier is very happy to go to you again and again.  I see her as my best judge” 

Samantha Kemp – Owner of Peggy and Mylo



“Katie provides an invaluable service.  Molly really enjoys her walks – it’s a highlight in the day when Katie arrives.  I find Katie professional, efficient, reliable and extremely flexible – i have no hesitation in recommending Katie’s services.  We both appreciate Katie and would be lost without her!!”

“Katie has looked after our boxers since they were puppies and they are now eight years old.  The dogs are very fond of her and she has a great affinity with them as she has with all dogs.  she is always cheerful and obliging.  Nothing is too much trouble and she even supplies a taxi service to our house.  She is extremely flexible, meeting our needs as they arise.  I really do not know what we would have done without her”

The Watt family – owners of Frog and Spangle
