Rated highly for: Responsiveness, Quality, Punctuality, ValueWe used this service for a few years and our dog Millie always loved going to stay with Alex and the other doggies. We always knew she would be well looked after, walked and cared for - highly recommend Alex's Ark. More...

Alex looked after our puppy for about a year before we moved away from the area, she was absolutely fantastic with him, he usually came back better behaved than he went in and he had the chance to socialise with lots of other well behaved dogs. She was also very flexible, knowledgable and reliable which we were so appreciative for. If we ever move back we’d ask Alex to look after our dog in a heartbeat More...

My Cockapoo Dexter went to Alex’s Ark twice a week for the whole day. Alex can’t do enough for your pet, always very welcoming and calm. Dexter would have plenty of exercise, socialise and come home happily tired. Dexter was always very excited to see Alex and I never worried about him leaving him even from day one. Alex is amazing with animals and I highly recommend her. More...

We are so pleased we found Alex! Alex looked after our pup, Rosie, one day a week from when she was just a few weeks old. Rosie loved going to Alex's and couldn't wait to run in as we got there . Alex is very accommodating and flexible and we are so pleased that we found someone we could trust and who Rosie clearly loved.We would highly recommend Alex's Ark. More...

Alex is so lovely. Super friendly, clearly loves the dogs she looks after which is great. I love the fact I get update texts and videos from her when she walks Oscar so I can see he’s happy and know she’s been which is great when I’m out all day. Oscar jumps every time he hears the key in the door now because he’s looking forward to seeing her! More...

Alex had looked after our dog Millie for holidays many times and i would highly recommend her services. Millie always goes bonkers for a cuddle from Alex if we ever see her out and about, which is all the reassurance I need.

Alex is a lovely lady and you can tell she looks after your dog like it's her own. It's great that routines can be followed within a loving home environment with plenty of friendly play mates! Alex even accompanied our dog to our wedding day for some photos which was an absolute highlight! Would highly reccommend Alex and her services. More...

Alex looked after my dog sam over Christmas this year when we went away. She's great with him and from the photos he looked like he had a lovely time staying with her. We didn't want to put him in kennels as he's used to being in a home environment. Will definitely use her again and would recommend to anyone thank you Alex xxx More...

Would highly recommend Alex, she was really lovely and when I dropped my dog off the second morning she shot in to her house - must be a good sign! Was really nice and reassuring to get some photos the first day as well. Will absolutely be bringing Bonnie back to Alex again :-) More...

Alex was the perfect person to look after our dog whilst we went on holiday.
We trusted her completely after having met her, and left us feeling at ease that our dog would be left in perfect hands.
Our dog is a rescue so we didn't want to leave him in kennels, so home boarding was our first and only option.
The regular 'pup-dates' were very reassuring-more so for my Husband!
I would recommend Alex to anyone who needs their dog looking after, for a holiday or even doggy daycare.
Our dog had a wonderful time with Alex, he's only just recovered from 2hour walks daily!

Alex is brilliant, she looks after our pup a few days a week on a regular basis so he doesn't get bored whilst we're at work. She is great with him and is actively involved in his training as he often comes back better behaved than he went in!!! He loves Alex and we feel relaxed knowing he is in safe hands and not bored at home!!! She also looked after him for a week when we went away- regular updates were lovely and he came back pooped from all the lovely walks!! Alex is flexible, professional, a really nice person and fantastic with the dogs, highly recommend her services :) More...

Alex is great with our rescue dog Piglet, she's always happy to be dropped off. Recently Alex even brought Piglet to our wedding during her stay so she could be in our wedding photos which we were very grateful for! Alex is really flexible and completely accommodating to our needy rescue dog (she suffers from separation anxiety). It's nice to have someone we know we can completely rely on � More...

We send our little cockapoo Daphne to Alex's every week and she loves it! Alex takes them on nice long walks which is great as she has lots of energy and needs a lots of exercise. It's great for socialising her too as there are always lovely dogs there for her to boss around � I can't recommend Alex enough,great service and worth every penny! More...

I book Dexter in twice a week with Alex and he loves it. He is so excited when he sees her and that is because he is going to have the best day with her, either mixing and playing with other dogs, going for a lovely walk, or even popping in to town for some socialisation. I love hearing how his day has been and what he has been up to and usually see a photo which makes my day. I highly recommend Alex's Ark. More...

My 8 month old cocker spaniel has been going to Alex since he was about 4 months old and he loves it! I feel completely relaxed leaving him for the day with Alex, she is extremely professional and I know he is in good hands. He always comes home tired but happy � Because I am self employed I don't have a set working routine but Alex is always very understanding and adaptable. I wouldn't want to send him to anyone else! � More...

I can’t recommend Alex’s Ark enough, a fab home from home environment, beautiful long walks for your pup and Alex is so lovely. We’ve never left our pointer with a pet sitting service before but as soon as we met Alex we knew Dotty would have the best time in a loving kind environment. We can’t thank Alex enough we really can’t. She sent us daily updates and lovely pictures of our Dotty having the best time in the fresh air she’s fab. So if your ever stuck for pet sitting Alex’s Ark should be your first point of call. Dotty also gives her a big High Paw and a big sloppy lick as her seal of approval xxxxx More...
