Abi is a professional who seems to know most things about dogs, my puppy Raffle was very happy being looked after for a week and I felt confident to go away

I would highly recommend these for dog sitting as Katherine had our dogs for the weekend and she kept us updated all weekend. It was lovely not having to worry about the dogs so a big thank you yet again More...

Abi has been brilliant, getting to know our anxious collie over the last few months before we went away for the night. She was calm and caring and realised when Indi was barking for attention rather than being stressed. Our 2 shelties loved Abi too, wanting attention and cuddles from her. It was a relief going away knowing the dogs were all happy. Lots of photos and communication helped too. I would definitely recommend Abi, she really put my mind at rest and it was lovely to come home to such happy dogs. More...

I would highly recommend Hopes Happy Hounds When I enquired for help with my senior Malamute, I had a response within an hour and I had arranged to meet Shane later that same afternoon. Shane understood my dogs needs and was able start immediately even changing his day to pop in more frequently. Sadly she deteriorated more quickly than we would have hoped and is no longer with us, but Shane made those last few days easier for her with his care and understanding. Thank you so much ☺️ More...

I can not recommend Abi enough as she was so helpful and professional in looking after our dog Horace when we went on holiday recently.

Emily has been absolutely brilliant with Ivy. Ivy fractured her leg and Emily was so flexible whilst Ivy was recovering. It is great to be able to go to work knowing Ivy is well cared for and Emily always contacts me if there are any concerns with Ivy. I love seeing the pictures of Ivy socialising with the other dogs :) I would definitely recommend Emily to anyone who needs a dog walker! More...

I couldn’t imagine a more suitable candidate to leave ones pet with or to have them walked or looked after by. I’ve seen first hand just loving and caring you are towards animals. When you took Mable in she was so nervous and hid under the table all the time, so many years with one family to then have to move bless her, you soon picked up on her characteristics, her likes and dislikes, and with in a very short matter of time Mable was loving life again, I truly commend you for that! So on that basis I could not think of anyone I would rather have to look after my pet. More...

I would without any doubt recommend Kath brimicombe-bloom, from Hopes Happy Hounds Harpenden, St Alban's & Luton to take care of your pets needs. My Labrador Swindon and Rex a jack Russell/ shih Tzu absolutely adored her .Rex knew when she was due to come and would watch for her coming up the road and then when he saw her would let Swindon know, both would then be waiting at the door. Kath took my two on some great adventures for over 3 years , and as Swindon got older she adapted there walks so that Swindon didn't get to tired,but sadly Swindon passed away before Christmas, at the ripe old age of 15. With Kath's lovely genuine personality and love of animals helped me to have two contented doggies. More...

Abi helped out this week while my regular dog walker was on holiday. Abi is very friendly and inspired confidence right away when she came to meet me and our dog. Our dog was well looked after, and I appreciated her text updates after each visit so that I knew everything was OK. More...

Abi walks my dog Tyson twice a week. She is so good with him for saying how energetic he is. She always gives me an update on how he’s been on his walk. She gives him lots of attention which he loves. I would highly recommend Abi as a dog walker!!! More...

Abi is so skilled at what she does and her devotion to dogs is clear in the care she gives them. She is always very flexible and you can tell she always puts the dogs first, also She is very knowledgeable and professional with a friendly approach. Abi is very good at socialising dogs with other dogs when they are nervous, or just unsure and she has shown a great deal of knowledge with training, which helped my dog out loads, she really does love dogs and it’s clear dogs love her too, I would 100% recommend Abi for any pet owners looking for a reliable walker or sitter.

Abi has been a godsend in helping me train and walk my 'thug' of a dog - she knows her stuff and when I have been at my lowest has given me the confidence to walk my boy again. And, the most important thing is he loves her too - and he doesn't give that freely. More...

Emily walks my little doggies 3 times a week whilst me and my partner are at work, they love her and always get so excited to see her every time she comes round. She is so helpful and kind and always willing to pop round even just to let our little pups out to to the toilet when we aren’t home for a longer period of time. She is so lovely and honestly couldn’t recommend her more!! More...

Emily looked after Dottie for two nights and was lovely, calm and reassuring. She kept in contact to let me know Dots was OK and it was obvious when I got home that she’d been well cared for.

When Tibby Stayed with Emily. He enjoyed every minute. He was well looked after. Walked, played with, Spoilt and plenty of Hugs. Emily did fantastic job with Tibby and I would leave him there again. She is worth looking up and booking. Your dogs or furbabies will love her. Worth every Penny. Thank you Emily for looking after my Tibby and keeping him safe. More...

We’ve had our dog walked on a regular basis and also one off walks - they have always been efficient, it’s lovely to have the notebook system so I know how Ringo has been, & I can leave the walker a note if I need to. Ringo has also had an overnight stay, it was lovely to get an update on the evening of how he was, and to see the pictures of him enjoying himself :) brilliant service, would thoroughly recommend.

Q&A

Hello, my name is Kath, I have many years experience of loving animals ranging from a rottweiler, staffie, labradors, mixes, moggies and full breeds all the way to ferrets and a hamster. I have always had cats and dogs, in total I have adopted 7 cats and 5 dogs over the years. I currently have an adorable little Jack-Chi called Poppy, she is my world as were all my other pets before. I live for animals they give me reason to smile everyday. I treat every pet as if they were my own and will always be kind and patient. I have studied dog behaviour and training on an online course as I like to ensure I have as much knowledge as possible regarding animals and pets and this helps me to be a better pet owner and pet carer. I am really excited to meet all of your beautiful fur babies and of course you.

I always wanted to work with animals and now I am living my dream.

I will treat your pet as if it was my own. I will love and care for them until you return home and you will be safe in the knowledge that your beloved fur babies are well taken care of.
