Highly recommended, I have used Anna for several years now and always have peace of mind that my dogs are in good hands, given lots of love and well looked after. I only have to mention Anna's name and it causes great excitement and racing to the door looking for her. More...

Walking the Dogs have been looking after my dog Reggie for nearly four years now ever since he was a puppy. He loves Anna and Heather to bits and gets so excited when they come to collect him for his walks. They are professional, reliable dog walkers and I highly recommend them! More...

Lovely people who really care about our dog. Have used their puppy-sitting service and now their dog walking option. I totally trust them and couldn't recommend them more. Super professional.

Couldn't recommend these guys enough. Very professional, trustworthy and experienced! They won't take risks with your pets, and know how to keep your dogs safe when on walks. I don't entrust my dogs with many people but with these guys I would! More...

They have been walking my 2 for nearly 4 years.. I trust them implicitly and love that they love my crazy special (at times) ginger ninjas. Kind, honest, trustworthy and reliable.. can’t speak highly enough of them.. We are lucky to have found them. More...

Could not have found a better dog walker! I am extremely selective when it comes to people I entrust my dogs with and these ladies pass the test! Extremely professional and trustworthy, and very careful - they won't take risks with your pets. I know my dogs are in safe hands with them! More...

I used Anna recently whilst we went away to look after my cat Twinkle, usually I rely on family or neighbours so this was a first for me but definitely won’t be a last! She visited beforehand to have a chat and meet us and Twinkle, kept me informed whilst I was away via text. She also fed and watered my parrot! Such a lovely lady who provides a fantastic service. I would not hesitate to use again and will definitely be recommending to anyone who needs this type of service ❤️ More...

Loving and trustworthy are just two ways to describe these animal lovers. Both are hugely invested in getting to know the pates likes/hates and personalities so they can be looked after giving huge peace of mind whilst away. Pics and updates were sent as promised. I would highly recommend and so would Sid and Monty! Thank you so much for an excellent service. More...

Heather and Anna-Marie are truly special. They have shown such care to my dogs. My Doug can be a troublesome with other dogs and the patience and care that Heather shows in walking him is so fantastic. We are so lucky to have them. When the boys have been poorly there has been great advice and cheerful clearing up of accidents. I really do not know what I would do without them. More...

Walking the dogs have been my life savers after a number of nightmare dog walkers I've had in the past. My 1 year old corgi adores these ladies and his walks. He listens out for the van to pull up each day. Can not recommend this company enough! More...

We have had Anna&Heather walking our dog for over a year and they are very reliable rain or snow! Our dog loves them and it is the perfect for her to have a mid day walk while we work. We come home to a very happy relaxed dog! They are both very experienced which is reassuring, our pup can be hit and miss with the recall so they went out of their way to keep her on the lead as requested and have lots of patience with her :) couldn't recommend them enough!

I wouldn’t leave my animal with anyone but these two lovely ladies. Heather and Anna looked after my cat every time we went away, I had a particularly nervous cat who would hide from other people but these ladies have real skills and Ginnie cat loved them both. They are passionate about what they do and about your animal. Thoroughly recommend them More...

Anna and Heather are amazing, and I wouldn't trust anyone else with my animals. They are professional, trust worthy and treat Daisy my dog as if she was their own. I would be lost without them. Daisy loves her daily walks with them are her other four legged friends. 100% recommend. More...

I have had Anna & Heather supporting me for the past 8 years, with both cat sitting and dog walking. Alas my cat is no longer with me, but Daisy my Labrador has walked 5 days a week with them for the past 8 years. I trust them implicitly with Daisy, and know that she is well looked after and cared for. Recently they have been particularly amazing, giving both advice and flexibility when Daisy developed an arthritic limp. Quote frankly I would be lost without them. More...

Anna and Heather do a brilliant job with Becks and he adores them in return! There's never a worry when he's on holiday with them because we know he's looked after and loved as though he was at home!

Can't think of two better people to look after our little guy. Always there for my panicked phone call for advice and support.

You two are a godsend!

We would recommend Anna & Heather to anyone without having to think about it. They have been regularly cat sitting for our babies for several years now. We always know we will come to a happy and well fed cat. It hasn't always been plain sailing either - they have had the odd emergency and poorly puss cats to deal with and we cannot thank them enough for what they have done. More...

Quite simply I have no hesitation in recommending Heather and Anna.
Finding someone else to walk Meg was a huge deal for me, but I am a great believer in trusting my dog’s instincts, I needn’t have worried. Meg leaves cushions scattered in the run for the door when she hears Anna’s van. They have been 100% reliable, flexible and professional. And on top of that they do it all with a great sense of humour! More...

Anna and Heather provide a brilliant, personal and warm service. Our cat gets very distressed travelling in the car and going into a cattery so for her to be able to stay at home and be looked after by such lovely and reliable people gives us huge peace of mind. I couldnt recommend Sitting the Cats enough. More...

I have never had my pets looked after by this couple but when ever I have visited, quite often unannounced, I have found their attitude to their line of work to be exemplary. They are most loving and diligent to the requirements of looking after their own and other peoples dogs and cats. If I lived nearer and I owned either cat or dog and required for their comfort and security to be undertaken with professional care and compassion then I wouldn't hesitate to contact Sittingthecats/Walkingthedogs in the full knowledge they would be in safe caring hands.

This is the first time we’ve ever used a cat feeding service, usually relying on family or friends. I had no reason to be worried. Anna and Heather were so professional and I would highly recommend. Visiting us before our trip, to meet the cat and talk things through was a really nice touch and made me feel much more relaxed. The few updates and picture of our cat whilst we were away was also really nice. Thank you both � More...

The lovely ladies from Walking-the-dogs have been taking our very excitable, dreadfully licky but quite adorable dog for lunchtime walks since she was just a couple of months old. Harley totally loves her time with Anna or Heather and if we happen to spot them out and about in their van on the days they don’t come she can barely contain herself! The homemade dog treats go down a storm on walks and the fact that Anna and Heather create lovely presents of these for their charges at Christmas is a lovely touch! We also appreciate the advice and guidance that Anna and Heather willingly share given their knowledge and experience. We really feel that they look after the dogs they walk as if they are their own.

We have also used their Sitting-the-cats service for our very nervous cat when we go away as we know he would hate a cattery. The texts to let us know how he is doing really help us relax knowing all is well. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this very professional and reliable team.

The lovely ladies from Walking-the-dogs have been taking our very excitable, dreadfully licky but adorable cockapoo for lunchtime walks since she was just a couple of months old. Starting off with puppy visits and then progressing to one to one walks and group walks to help her socialisation. They have been great at giving us advice and guidance and we work together to ensure we are consistent with training and commands. Our dog totally loves her times with Anna or Heather and if we happen to spot them out and about in their van on the days they don’t come she can barely contain herself! We have also used their Sitting-the-cats service for our very nervous cat when we go away as we know he would hate a cattery.

Fantastic service looking after my fur babies who I have left for the first time without a family member looking after them. I had no need to worry, my babies were well looked after and I had a clean house with bread and milk on my return. Lots of updates on how they were doing which really helped me to relax! Can’t recommend them enough! More...

We recently went on holiday and left our two cats at home as they hate going to the cattery. Anna looked after them so well and was very reassuring to have messages to let us know they were ok. The cats were so happy when we got home and I highly recommend these lovely ladies!! Xx More...

First class service my dog has had holidays with Anna and Heather for years, I trust them with my dog (Joe) and wouldn’t change this at all. They love him like I do the care they take over him is outstanding. I would worry to much if he had to go some well else, I go as far as to say he wouldn’t be keen on going to someone new. Walking the dogs and sitting the cats hopefully are here the stay. Trust and honesty go a long way. More...

Q&A

Being outdoors with the dogs & getting to know their individual personalities. Also having fun with them on the walks. We both love how happy the dogs are to see us when we pick them for their walk, they are all part of our extended family!

When we started the company back in 2008 we were one of 3 companies offering a dog walking service. We decided that there was a gap in the market & Heather gave up her job to become a full time pet carer. Then a few months later we were receiving enquiries to look after people’s cats & as I have grown up with a multi cat household it seemed a natural progression to offer this service along side dog walking.

We are a local independent company that is owned by two animal lovers.

We share the work between us,maintaining a professional service and continuing an ongoing commitment to provide a high level of pet care at all times.

We are trustworthy & hold a current police check,which shows that we both have a clean criminal record.

We are responsible by obtaining comprehensive insurance including public liability,animal care custody,third party liability,non negligent cover,employer’s liability,property damage & key cover ensuring that in the unlikely event of an emergency we are covered.

For home security our vehicles are non branded so we are not making it obvious that you are not at home. We also take your data protection seriously & adhere to the regulations keeping your personal information confidential. Paperwork is always kept separate from our house key safe & our property has a comprehensive alarm system.

So far all of our testimonials are 5 Stars & we are both Pet First Aid Trained.

We keep our dog walking groups small & we are both non smokers.
