Our Labrador Callie has been for weekly walks and multiple overnight stays with Mike and Lin for over 4 years. She waits by the window for Mike’s arrival and thoroughly enjoys meeting up with her doggy pals! Mike is so kind and extremely reliable; nothing is too much trouble. He has been a real lifesaver looking after Callie on numerous occasions. We can’t recommend him highly enough.
I’ve been using Mike to walk my dogs over the last 12 years. During this time, I can honestly say I wouldn’t use anyone else. I initially started using Mike while I was setting up my own business. Nothing was too much to ask! I would ask Mike to drop off and pick up from different locations, I called him when my dog was poorly, not only did he help over the phone he took it upon himself to come down to the house and check all was ok. Mike and his family have been a true godsend to me and my beloved doggies. I have never been let down, if there is a reason for Mike to not be able to collect, he always makes arrangements for his wife Linda or his daughter Naomi to pick up, always informing me of any changes. Over the 12 years Mike has walked all three of my dogs (two who are no longer with us) I can whole heartedly say they have all LOVED Mike, and I can tell it’s very much reciprocated.
Mike and Lin have cared for my dogs for more than a decade and I would not trust anyone else with them. You can tell how good they are by how pleased the dogs are to see them, and they will always do that bit more to help if you need flexibility of time and day, care for the dogs for longer or take them on multiple walks, even at short notice. In addition, their experience with dogs allows them to identify the dogs that can socialise together improving their walk enjoyment, and pick up on any emerging health issues. I could not recommend them highly enough.
I met Mike through word of mouth, I was working in a local veterinary practice and he walked several of the staffs dogs (I took that as a good recommendation). We have always had rescue dogs and had recently taken on Jess, a collie Cross, with more energy than you could believe. She’d had a tricky start in life and therefore was extremely anxious, nervous and somewhat destructive. She was also terrified of men, so we asked Mike to meet her and see if she could join his walks, it took a while, but Mike was ever so patient with her (even having trial sleep overs!). Now Jess if nearly 6, loves life, walking, travelling in the car and is a very happy loving dog. With any dog, it is great to know that you can trust someone to not only look after them when needed, but also build a bond and trust, which is exactly what was needed. We can’t recommend highly enough.
I would just like to say a big thank you to Mike and Lin for being such excellent dog walkers for our 7 year old Labrador Loki, they have been walking him since puppyhood and we wouldn’t dream of using anybody else. His one hour daily walk is often much longer and he comes home one happy tired dog! They are kind, punctual and organised and care for him as if he was their own dog, he also stays with them if we go away. We couldn’t think of any one better. Love from a very happy dog owner and dog!!
