Claire is very reliable and trustworthy. She is always kind and caring to our dog Bailey. It can be difficult to trust new people with Bailey ,as she is our princess, but Claire was very thorough on her initial visit and listened to all our worries and concerns and we needn’t have worried one bit , as Claire is always professional and extremely competent.We would highly recommend Claire.

There aren’t many people I would trust with my dog but Claire is one of them. She is competent, professional, reliable, knowledgeable and offers a fantastic service.

I Cannot recommend her enough.


Karla Howes reviewed Claire’s Pet Services – 5 star
Claire takes our two dogs out occasionally and is always very good with them. When she first came to meet them, she was so calm with them and one of our cats sat on her and wouldn’t move! I always recommend her to everyone I know with animals and trust her completely. Thanks Claire 😊

Claire recently walked my boy Bruce for a few weeks while I was getting myself organised. Bruce loved Claire and was always excited to see her. He always came back tired and slept the rest of the day. thank you Claire for having him

Claire came to pet sit at our home for our two doglets, they were very happy at staying in their own environment.

It was a bit of a blow when our teenage neighbour cat-feeder very  inconsiderately went off to uni just as my husband retired so it was great to discover Claire and know that we could continue to go off on frequent jaunts without having to worry about our two cats. She comes to feed them every day and always spends some time with them so they don’t miss having a fuss. She’s especially good at keeping an eye on, and cleaning up after, our 20 year-old old lady who isn’t incontinent but likes to pick and choose where she & goes which isn’t always the litter tray. it’s great to know that the cats are in good hands while we’re away and they’re always happy and contented when we get back.

I just wanted to say thank you for your continued help with Lola. She was a dog that was quite reactive with other dogs when out and about, but since beginning walks with you she has become a lot more relaxed. She still has her moments but is a lot happier and more content. Thank you so much, I won’t hesitate to recommend you to anyone looking for a dog walker,  Jo 🙂

Claire came to us, highly recommended by an extremely experienced dog trainer in the South West, and she was like a little ray of hope and sunshine in our lives.

Our four month old cockapoo was very boisterous and disobedient, and needed much more exercise than we could give him. At first, Claire came twice a week, but Billy sulked and behaved badly when she didn’t come. He sits on the window sill and waits for her every morning now, except weekends. He knows her name, what time she comes and he greets her with joyful relief. Billy is eleven months old now and still adores Claire’s gentle, loving but firm ways. She has transformed him! He can follow all the commands and we can take him anywhere knowing we can trust him to behave.

Claire is extremely generous with her time and Billy is always exhausted when he gets home. She is our little miracle worker and we can’t recommend her highly enough.

Claire has looked after our Ridgebacks for a number of years now and always does so brilliantly. The dogs are always excited to see her and are tired out from all the fun times when we return. Even though are dogs are large and strong willed, Claire handles them with ease and we always leave safe in the knowledge that she will care for them as if they were her own.

As an added bonus the house is always clean and tidy when we arrive home and after this holiday we returned to a lovely bunch of flowers in the kitchen. I really cannot recommend Claire enough.

At the weekend, Claire dog sat for my dog Lucy. Claire is brilliant with Lucy, & keeps me updated with photos and regular texts. Lucy can be nervous with different people but she loves Claire x

Published By. Elaine Austin.

My dog was nervous around other dogs and strangers and since he has started walking with Claire he has become a confident and much happier dog. I can’t thank her enough.

 With a change of jobs, we needed a reliable and trustworthy dog walker and Claire was recommended to us. When first meeting Claire, she was very friendly and professional and nothing has changed since.  The dogs love her and they’re always exhausted after she’s taken them out. Without a doubt, we would highly recommend Claire to anyone looking for someone to take care of their pets.

I have used dog walking services before but  they certainly don’t come anywhere near Claire’s services.  My dogs will sit and wait for Claire to come and take them for a walk, running to the door every time they think they hear her – they look forward to their walks with Claire so much and  I know my dogs are well looked after whilst they are in her care.  I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Claire ‘s Pet Services..

We are very confident to leave our beloved Golden retriever in Claire’s capable hands . We always know he will be very well looked after . I would highly recommend her services .

Published By. Jane Foubister.

I just don’t know what we’d do without Claire. When we first met, she took the time to get to know us and our two border terriers. After our first meeting, I had no reservations and was glad to leave our dogs in her capable hands twice a week.When I get home from work the dogs are always tired and sleep all evening!

I would recommend Claire to anyone looking for a dog Walker.

We cannot recommend Claire highly enough. From our initial meeting to discuss requirements for our two dogs, we were very impressed. Our dogs gave Claire their trust in return for her genuine affection, professionalism, high quality of service, and love of animals.

Claire is trustworthy, reliable, and very accommodating around our busy work schedule. It has given us great ‘ peace of mind’ that whilst we are at work, the dogs are safe, well looked after, and not stressed. It is a pleasure to return home and be greeted by happy and contented dogs, that are not bursting to be let into the garden. This makes us very happy to know that we are doing the right thing for our animals.

We are happy to provide a verbal recommendation if required

Claire is a lovely lady she looked after my dogs in November one is a bit of a monkey but Claire treated them as her own , my home was spotless when I came home the dogs weren’t even pleased to see me and they certainly missed Claire.. I  have booked Claire again for this summer as my doggies just love her to bits I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Claire she is a first class lady with a heart of gold.

Published By. Valerie Cousins.

From the very first time that we all met Claire, I knew  that we were on to a winner!

The way that Claire interacted with us was lovely, but more importantly the way that she was with our two Labradors was wonderful, and they thought she was wonderful too!

Claire visits our boys during the day and it is great for us to know that they are being spoilt and truly cared for when we are at work.  It really stops us from stressing about them, knowing that Claire will be in to see them and lets me know everyday that things are fine.  She is very reliable and extremely accommodating as she has helped us out at short notice on occasions.

Claire is a real find for us and we would have no hesitation in recommending her services to anyone and we can’t rate her highly enough.

Claire is fantastic and a huge help with our dog Loki when we are out at work during the day. Nothing is too much trouble and Loki has such a wonderful time during the sessions.  I couldn’t recommend Claire’s pets services enough!

Published By: Steph Ward.

We would have no hesitation in recommending Claire – she is very reliable and trustworthy and our springer spaniel adores her. He is also more attentive during walks, something which we’re sure Claire has been teaching him!

Working in the world of canine mobility solutions has meant that we are very reticent to recommend any product or service without fully experiencing it ourselves. Our black Labradors Pip and Madge have reassured us that they love having Claire come to stay with them when we are away and they hardly miss us at all!  How do we know they are telling us the truth?  Because if Claire visits when we are around they welcome her in the same way they do us and treat her like part of the family.  We trust their judgement and the peace of mind we now have when we go away is impossible to quantify.  We know that she looks after them as if they were her own – who could ask better than that!

Claire recently walked our dog while we were on holiday,she took great care of him & would defiantly use her services again.

Published By: Susan Wilkinson

My new husband and I have just returned from our 2 week honeymoon, during which time Claire stayed at our home and looked after our 4 dogs. Claire already visits them on a daily basis while we’re at work, just to break up the day, so it was ideal for us that our doglets were able to stay in their own home and have someone live with them that they already know and trust.

It is no exaggeration to say that our honeymoon was better for knowing Claire was at home with the dogs, it meant we could really enjoy ourselves (without the guilt I’ve always felt with kennels), knowing confidently they were all happy. Claire has a wonderful, gentle approach with our dogs, and appreciates their varied personalities and needs. It is testament to this that our sweet, but ever so shy, rescue dachshund has accepted her into his inner circle. Receiving a photo of the two of them having a cuddle while we were away was wonderful.

I can’t recommend Claire highly enough.

Hi Claire, I just wanted to say thank you for looking after my furbaby, Ky, whilst I was away. He clearly loved going out with you, which was evident from the pictures you sent me. Many thanks, hope to use you again in the future and would definitely recommend you.

Published By: Vanessa Cox

Totally trustworthy, reliable, caring and committed; we have no hesitation in highly recommending Claire to anyone seeking peace of mind in the care and support of their pets.

She looked after our Working Cocker whilst we were on holiday and regularly walks him: she always keep you informed of what has been going on and we are delighted by her caring and handling ability and so is he!! Thank you.

I cannot recommend Claires services enough, friendly, reliable and trustworthy. My George loves her and she has worked wonders with him. Thanks Claire!

Published by: C Pickerill

Claire is fantastic with my two dogs. They are not the easiest canines to look after, but Claire has the perfect combination of authority and love, so they always have a great time there and don’t come back to me spoilt rotten.

Published by: Anneliese

Claire is extremely reliable, she charges very reasonable prices and often helps me out on very short notice. She is trustworthy, shows a lot of love to my 2 labrador puppies and often goes the extra mile to help. I can’t recommend her enough, she is worth every penny.

Claire was highly recommended to us to look after our dogs, cat and chickens whilst we were away in September and we fully understand why. We were absolutely delighted with her and the dogs clearly where as they sulked when we got home and replaced Claire in their day to day routine!! Fantastic service, thank you so much Claire.

Claire walks my French Bulldog on a regular basis and I would be lost if She had not be recommended to me. My dog has so much fun on his walks and is always so content afterwards. Claire is reliable and trustworthy and I would recommend her to anyone. She genuinely loves and understands dogs.

Published by: Hannah

Claires dog walking services helped save my two from having to go into kennels for a week where they have previously returned home unhappy. I felt much better knowing they were in their own home and claire was walking them daily. Taz and Talini were definitely much happier about it too ! Thank you 🙂

This is the first time I have used Claire for House sitting following a recommendation from a friend, She looked after our 3 Dogs, 3 Cats, Rabbit, Chickens and caged Bird whilst we were away on Holiday.I can honestly say it is the first time I have had complete piece of mind whilst being away that our Animals were being well looked after, and I will certainly use Claire again.

We have had Claire walking our dogs twice a week at lunch times for about 6 months now and cannot praise her enough. Before, we found our Springer and Cavalier had started being destructive indoors whilst we were at work. That all changed when Claire started walking them and we now have happy dogs again. Nothing is to much trouble and when our new Cocker puppy broke her leg, Claire entertained them all in the garden whilst the cast was on. So a big Thank you from Darcy the Springer, Tali the Cavalier and Piper the Cocker puppy plus two very happy owners, Miriam and Paddy Sellars x

We have a 68kg Rhodesian Ridgeback who suffers from Separation Anxiety Syndrome as well as some bad habits when meeting other dogs whilst he is on his lead. We weren’t sure if anyone could ‘sit’ him nor manage to walk him. We were recommended to Claire and we were amazed how well she coped with full confidence in her own abilities. She was amazingly good and we have no hesitation in recommending her services for walking and for ‘sitting’….a wonderful ‘find’ for us.

Claire looks after my dog Laika one day a week and also for occasional overnight stays. I am absolutely delighted with the service she provides. Claire is reliable, trustworthy and a genuinely lovely person and she is brilliant, patient and attentive with my not always very well behaved pointer (sorry for all the lost tennis balls)! I feel completely happy that my dog is in safe hands and I would highly recommend Claire to anyone.

Delighted with the care and attention our cat Leo received. Probably more spoiled than when we are at home! Came back from a week away to a very contented cat. He would be honoured to join your gallery.

I have just got back from a few days away & can not thank Claire enough for the care she has given my 4 dogs & cat.All of my dogs have some sort of significant issue (age/health/temperament)& I am loathe to entrust them to anyone. Having known Claire through dog training classes for a number of years I was confident enough to leave her in charge & have returned home to find more peace & harmony in the house than there is even when I am at home.The animals have been impeccably cared for & clearly adore her, & Claire has noticed all their little ways in a manner that really shows that she ‘thinks’ dog. Thank you Claire – I can now even think about going on a (previously unimaginable)’dog-free’holiday !

Published by: Sophie

It’s always such peace of mind knowing my little Staffie, Ruby, is being cared for by this wonderful service. Claire is a natural with dogs, knowledgeable, kind, patient, honest and caring. Ruby loves her time with her and gets so excited everytime they meet. Highly recommended.

I was really pleased when I found Claire, my lovely Briagh gets her walks and I didn’t have to race home from work. Thanks Claire 😉

My previous dog walker was having a baby when along came Claire! Rosie loves her, knows the day she comes and is always waiting at the gate! Claire is trustworthy, reliable and I know Rosie is ok when out with her. She has a door key so I can go out and not worry. Thank you, Claire.

Trevor is an ex-racer and is not too keen on kennels and cages so the service Claire offers is brilliant for both us and Trevor. We have confidence that he is being given the best care possible because he gets so excited when he sees Claire, and as a typical greyhound he is usually so aloof! Best service we’ve found in the area. Many thanks Claire.

Published by: Carol & Tony

We have known Claire for a number of years and always appreciated the dedication and care she brings to her varied tasks. So we were pleased to support her in her new venture of caring for pets in the owners’ absence. We were away for eight days during which she had access to our conservatory to twice-daily feed, fuss over and generally care for our two cats. There was no doubt she did a great job: she took to the cats and they must have done to her, everything was ‘spic and span’ on our return (apparently Claire cleaned-up one ‘present’ from the cats), and she had even ensured our bird feeders were full. We received a progress report by email and, on our return very early one morning, we found Claire had kindly bought a loaf of bread and a pint of milk for us! So great job all round and we will be delighted to book her again when we’re next away. Very many thanks Claire.

I don’t often recommend other people as I have too often found that they are unreliable. However, Claire is different and I have no hesitation in recommending my dog training clients to her

We had been looking for an occasional visitor/walker for our lively sprocker spaniel, Millie. We are happy to have found Claire who is friendly but professional and obviously knowledgeable about animals. Claire is always very helpful and Millie looks forward to her visits. Thank you Claire.

So wonderful to be able to leave our pets is such capable and caring hands when we go on holiday. Our cats, chickens and dog were very well looked after whilst we were away and we’ll be using Claire again in the near future without a shadow of a doubt.

We found Claire very professional,reliable,caring and flexible to our needs, our spaniel was thoroughly spoilt and enjoyed every walk, we would not hesitate in using Claire’s dog services in the future and would recommend it to anyone.

Claire is just fantastic 🙂 both our dogs are walked up to 4 times a week at varying hours and I can not fault the service she provides. Having met Claire it is clear she is a pet/dog ‘loving’ person, our 2 dogs took to her instantly. Claire knows all that I know about our dogs from their likes to dislikes and has taken the time to ask the questions and find these things out. Having previously used another dog walking service who would turn up at the wrong times, leave the dogs all day and not walk them for them for the 1hr paid I was nervous to say the least having to find another. However, Claire has never let us down, I can honestly say I go to work feeling relaxed, knowing Claire will be there. Claire takes all the dogs’ needs into consideration, for example, the heat and the fact we have a 13yr old and a 2yr old!!! I feel Claire cares and looks after out dogs in the way I do. My family have commented since having Claire as a dog walker how much happier the dogs seem, as do we. I would recommend Claire to any of my family, friends and people who love their dogs and want a fantastic dog walker.

“I would like to thank Claire for looking after Ned, our springer spaniel, with so much care and attention over the past few years. Claire has been extremely reliable, friendly and adaptable in all of our dealings with her and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her dog walking services to others. Thanks Claire!”

Claire is a kind and professional dog walker who looks after Toby for me … Toby needs a lot of attention and needs to burn lots of energy. We hired Claire as she was insured to do the job and was highly recommended by others. Claire gives Toby the walks he needs and more and we could not be more grateful. I recommend Claire to anyone looking for a dog walker !
