Ginny really enjoyed her holiday with Scamps and Champs! She was really well looked after. The regular updates allowed us to enjoy our holiday. We will definitely use again.

Matt walked three dogs for us while we went on holiday. A relative was able to have them at home but couldn't walk them for physical reasons. One of the dogs who lives with another relative We needed to communicate a lot and this was a big strength. The dogs absolutely loved it and we came back to healthy, happy and fit dogs. The relative was also very pleased with Matt and he couldn't have done more to make the process easier. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend both Scamps and Champs for their communication and organisation and Matt as a dog walker who did so well. More...

A fantastic service, and very attentive to our animal's needs! After booking our holiday we realised that our usual parental cat sitter wasn't available, but Scamps and Champs stepped up. Not only was our cat fed and watered every day, but she got played with every morning too (crucial for a sociable cat to keep her happy). We had photo updates and could see she became very relaxed with the daily visits and the visits clearly made her happy while we were away for the week. Even our cat's more odd behaviours were indulged! Also, they kindly put our bin out and watered our plants so it was a win win. Can't recommend highly enough :-) More...

My little westie Bonnie means the world to me and I am very choosy who I leave her with, so I am lucky to have Melanie and Malise who come into to see to her when I am working.

Melanie visits our cat when we go away. It makes me feel happier that I can leave my pet in her own environment and not worry about her being locked up in a cage.
I can say that Melanie is a very caring person.
I was particularly impressed with the professionalism of the business.
So glad I found Scamps & Champs

Emma and Melanie made sure we were set up perfectly for our wedding which wouldn't have been complete without our Staffy, Chubbs.
The whole service was excellent and conciencious.
The update of Chubbs' eating and sleeping complete with photo was so great for putting our minds at ease.

Whilst I hope I don't need another wedding service we will very much be in touch for future services!

P.S. thanks for the wedding card

Sophie has been staying in our home looking after our lurcher Seb we received regular emails with updates and pictures and he was definitely happy and settled with Sophie especially the pictures where he is having cuddles on the sofa. Also Mel came in to spend time with him during the day. We love how we came home to a detailed log of what has happened that day. We will be definitely using their services again and would highly recommend them. Alot better solution than kennels especially since our boy spent 18 months in kennels before we rescued him. More...

Melanie and Malise came to set up the first visits with our cats. They were both very friendly and professional. We felt at ease leaving our cats in their hands and I would would highly recommend their service! Malise even left details of the visits for us to look over, great touch! Thank you Malise and Melanie, we will definitely be using Scamps and Champs again! More...

There is too much to list:) I enjoy meeting the clients, and meeting all sorts of pets. Each day, I enjoy my visits, walks, and knowing that we are helping clients to provide the best care for their pets. When you're greeted with a waggy tail, or see a cat that has previously been hiding, but now feels confident to come out and be petted, it's great. I enjoy keeping clients updated with pictures and texts, and then knowing they're reassured that they pet is happy and settled with us.

I have my own 2 dogs, and grew up with cats and dogs., and small pets. My dogs are a huge part of my family now, and it's important to me that I know they are being well cared for when I'm on holiday or out for longer times. I feel passionate about the welfare of animals, and use pet carers for my company that I would be happy to leave my own pets with. I do use my own dog walkers and pet sitters for my 2 dogs:) I was a teacher before I bought my franchise, and have always enjoyed helping others, and caring. I decided to transfer my skills to caring for animals instead of children. It's important to me that clients know their pets are being well cared for, whilst they are with us.
I felt inspired to run a Scamps and Champs Franchise after meeting Lesley, who started the company, because it's clear her priority is the well being of animals. Although we are a business, the animals are the most important part of our day:)

There are lots of different pet carers offering a range of services. At Scamps & Champs we use pet carers who are experienced with pets, and that we trust to provide the highest care for them. Our pet carers are from a range of backgrounds, including teaching, professional backgrounds, trainee vets, council employees. retired couples. Our pet carers are police checked and reference checked. I held a safer recruitment qualification when I was an Assistant Headteacher, and use these skills to ensure I have the right people in place to care for your pets. As a franchisee I am kept up to date with current laws, and receive annual training, and also hold a canine first aid certificate. We have excellent reviews on our Face book page, and also on Free Index for dog walkers.


We provide solo and group walks. We walk a maximum of 4 dogs in a group and the size of our group depends on the dogs. We offer 30 or 60 minute walks.

We can provide morning and/or evening visits for pets whilst you're away. We can also provide dog visits throughout the day or puppy visits.

We can provide full pet sitting, which is a minimum of 20 hours per day and night. We also offer day sitting, or overnight sitting. Walks are included.

We carefully match your dog to our home boarding families, and then arrange a meeting, so you can meet the family before confirming the booking. We need to ensure your dogs are vaccinated and microchipped. Our families are licensed by their council, and insured.
