'Heather has been walking our two boxers for the past 4 years. She has never cancelled an appointment and the dogs look forward to walk days. Heather gives our two girls a thorough run and is careful with the dogs she takes on so that they all get on. It is blindingly obvious that Heather enjoys her job and this enthusiasm is reflected in her work' KIM PARROTT

'Heather walks my German Shorthaired Pointer weekly. I have complete trust in her. She is firm but kind, just what Logan needs. She often sends photos of him out with his friends.' HILARY LAKIN

'Heather knows and understands my dogs personalities and their individual needs. She looks after them as if they were her own. They absolutely love her! Heather is an absolute pleasure to deal with and I can't recommend her enough!' LAURA SCOTT

'We moved from Manchester, that's when Heather started walking our Miniature Dachshund and she has been beyond fantastic. Bertie can be quite a nervous dog but since walking with Heather and the bigger dogs his behaviour and confidence have improved dramatically. It's always going to be daunting moving to a new area with pets, but Heather kindly took the time to draw me up a list of local dog walks and is always on hand for help and friendly advice. Heather also feeds our cats whilst we are away - as you can see we'd be lost without her.' AILEEN NICHOLLS

'Having a negative experience of a professional dog walker, we were a little unsure about looking to another. I took to Heather straight away and have never looked back! Professional, thoughtful, trustworthy, Heather is truly a dog lover with a kind, caring nature - which I knew our sensitive boy responds well to.' SARAH COLBORNE

'Heather has become an integral part of our life, caring for our two rescue labs with totally different needs. My girls love 'Aunty Heather'. Heather shows great affection for all her dogs and consistently prioritises their health and wellbeing, noticing the slightest changes in their physical appearance or social behaviour. I have tremendous respect for Heather, having accompanied her on a number of walks over the years, seeing the challenges she faces, and the skills she utilises to keep her pack healthy, happy and safe.' SALLY O'CALLAGHAN

'Trying to balance full time jobs and making sure our lovely rescue border collie, Murphy is getting the attention and exercise that he needs has not always been easy, but Heather has been a God send. She is flexible, loves animals and does not appear to be phased with any problem presented to her. We always know when Murphy has been out with Heather and the "pack" as he is completely exhausted and has a great appetite.' ANN BARRETT

'Chris and I have known Heather for over eight years. During that time she has regularly had the care of our three dogs – one elderly Basset Hound, One Basset puppy and one Battersea rescue Labradoodle (of questionable age).
Heather has regularly walked all three and dog sat for us and I have to say our dogs adore her. Heather is friendly, reliable and trustworthy and has an obvious natural affinity with animals of all ages, shapes and sizes. I have no hesitation in recommending Heather to anyone who needs a dog care service.’ JACKIE EDWARDS

‘I have known Heather socially and professionally for many years and have always found her honest, reliable and sincere. Heather has walked and professionally groomed my dogs for many years and on many occasions cared for them in my own home whilst I have been away. I have always found her professional and trustworthy whereby I have no hesitation in recommending her.’ MARILYN BURGEMAN author of ‘Essentials For The Domestic Dog Owner’

'Heather has been very helpful to us- I hired Heather to walk our 2 Japanese Akitas and the male is not very easy to handle. Heather made it look easy. She is very gifted with animals; I recommend her highly' ALICE DAVEY

‘Heather has been a wonderful help with Paddy our 11 year old Black German Shepherd rescue. Visiting him, playing with him in the garden and when possible walking him, although we know this can be a slight issue, on his old legs! Heather has proved to be the extra link we needed to help out with Paddy and we know that we can trust her and rely on her at all times, a truly great find!’ JANE BARWOOD

Heather has been looking after, and walking, our yellow Labrador, Ollie since he was 10 weeks old. She's proven to be highly dependable and really has put our mind at rest when we're at work. Ollie's reaction to Heather arriving has to be seen to be believed he even recognizes the sound of her van and gets very excited. If you need someone to look after your dog I'd highly recommend getting in touch with Heather, especially given that she copes with Ollie despite him having the dubious accolade of being her naughtiest dog! MATT DUGGAN

Heather has been looking after Poppy, my chocolate Springer X Cocker Spaniel from the age of about 5 months. To see Poppy's reaction when Heather pulls up says it all .... basically goes mental! To top it off ….when I bumped in to Heather while walking Poppy myself...she wanted to walk with Heather as I had become surplus to requirements! All in All Heather is very flexible, very communicative, great value and a perfect choice if you need someone to look after your little one in the same way you would yourself!‎ ANDY NELSON
