Abi was recommended to us and what a recommendation! We have three rescue dogs, and this was our first time having a dog sitter. The dogs previously went to a relatives for holidays but having adopted a new rescue dog that had already been passed from pillar to post we thought it would be more reassuring for her to be looked after at home. Abi was great, she took the time to settle the dogs and catered to their little differences. We saw regular pictures of how they were getting on and it was clear to see they adored Abi. She was not just great with the dogs but helped to reassure an anxious fur mum that not only were the dogs ok, they were loving their fuss and having fun Abi is super professional, trustworthy and reliable and we could not have asked for a better person to care for our dogs whilst we were away. Thanks so much Abi, we are grateful beyond words and we will definitely be seeing you soon!!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ More...

Abi looked after our 2 cats for a week. This was the first time we'd used a cat sitter so we were understandably anxious. The older one tends to do a disappearing act every time we go away yet with Abi she was home every day for her dinner . The younger cat is incredibly timid and doesn't really like people but took to Abi straight away. Loved seeing the pictures when we were away and came home to 2 happy cats. Will definitely use Abi's services again in the future More...

Abi is trustworthy and took great care of our cats. We would continue using her service if it's not because we are moving to London. Hopefully we can find someone as good as Abi again! More...

After losing my previous dog walker, who moved location I was struggling to find a replacement and was starting to panic. Then I came across Abi, what a godsend, I wish we had known about her earlier . Unlike many other walkers who put the dogs in a van and then in a field for an hour, which I think in hindsight my dog actually found quite stressful, Abi actually walks with the dogs. My dog Bodie has changed so much since walking with her, he’s definitely increased in confidence and is much better with other dogs. She is really good with him and he comes home tired and happy, you can’t really ask for more. I know I can trust her with him which I think is really important. Her communication is always excellent and she flexible when I have short notice requests. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her services. More...

Abi came and looked after my 3 daxis. She got the measure of them in seconds of meeting them and they really loved her and they are VERY fussy about who they like! She was reliable and kept us updated. Most importantly i felt confidant and happy to leave them with her. Am thrilled to have found her! More...

I cannot recommend Abi enough for everything she has done for us. After three previous unsuccessful dog walkers, I was starting to lose faith (especially as the last one we were really unhappy with), until we found Abi. I knew from the moment she came to our home to meet our dog, Woody, and us that she was brilliant. She clearly had experience and a lot of knowledge on breeds of dog, training and understanding each dog's needs. Abi has been walking Woody for three months now and it's been great. She's super easy to contact, talk to and is so flexible, which has been great for our schedule. Woody loves her and loves being walked with his little group of friends (proud dog-mum moment!) She's even dog-sitting for us when we get married in June, so if that doesn't prove that we love and trust her - I don't know what does! I seriously can't recommend her enough, she's amazing and if you have a dog that needs walking, cat that needs feeding or any pets that need dropping in on - Abi is your girl! More...

We have been using Hopes Happy Hounds for about a year now. Shane has been walking our dog Kanella every week day. Kanella is very excited to see him and you can tell he loves dogs. I come back home every afternoon to a very happy and relaxed dog. He is very flexible and reliable and I would trust him to stay over in our house to look after Kanella. He always cleans up after her and spends valuable time with Kanella despite the weather. He has never cancelled to us last minute and on the contrary he would take the extra step in trying to change his schedule to accommodate a last minute request from us which I do appreciate. Thank you for your help Shane More...

What an absolute shambles Hopes Happy Hounds are,we booked a 2 night stay while we was away getting married only to find out on our return that Dan thought that our 3 dogs didn’t like him so he left them alone all night on 5th November. We had already asked for him to make sure that he stayed with them as they are terrified of fireworks.One of our neighbours was going to call the RSPCA & Police as the dogs where barking & crying ALL night,he didn’t even go back the following morning to walk them.I contacted Amy(the owner) about this & she thinks that it’s acceptable what Dan done,I replied to her email & she’s not even had the decency to reply.DON’T ever us Hopes Happy Hounds.

Abi looked after our 11mth old puppy recently one evening when we went out. She came to visit Nala twice so they got to know each other. Felt very happy to leave my puppy with her and there were fireworks going off that evening also. Would definitely recommend Abi to look after any family pet and will use her service again. Thank you Abi for looking after Nala.. we had an enjoyable evening feeling relaxed our pet was well looked after. More...

Abi does a great job looking after our two cats when we go away. She’s extremely reliable, and when making a booking she always gets back quickly regarding availability. Our cats are always happy and well looked after, and Abi takes pictures during the visits so we know they’re in safe hands. It’s a huge weight off our minds knowing that they’re in her care while we’re away, I can’t recommend her enough! 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...

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...
