Reliable, helpful and committed
Mr Barber Reviewed on 4th May, 2015

We have been using 'take a walk' since December 2014 and Sara has been extremely reliable, trustworthy and understanding.

They visit our young cairn terrier everyday whilst we are at work they have provided great piece of mind and have not let us down once. Any slight deviation from the normal routine is communicated well in advance and alternative is always provided.

We will continue to use this service as it is perfect for our requirements, I couldn't recommend them enough.

Use this service if you require people that are compassionate, trusting and pleased to help you and your pets.

Dog Walking - Toby
Mrs smith Reviewed on 10th December, 2013

Last year we got a beautiful Cocker Spaniel puppy, Toby. I was lucky to be at home a lot to care for him but recently my work situation changed and I needed someone to come in regularly to walk Toby and spend time with him. I found Take a Walk and Sara came round to the house to meet me and Toby.

Toby took to Sara immediately (and so did I!) she filled me with confidence and I felt more than happy to hand over my precious puppy and house keys to her. Sara walks Toby three times a week now and I trust her totally to take care of him. She has a lovely way with dogs (and I'm sure with other animals), she is always calm and in control and I trust her to put Toby's needs first and deal with any situation. When Sara comes to the house Toby is thrilled to see her and always rushes around to find his favourite toy to give to her.

I would not hesitate to recommend Take a Walk to anyone - it is a fantastic and affordable service that you can completely trust and rely on.

Lovely people, could not recommend better care or service for your pets!
Ms Pollard Reviewed on 14th November, 2013

Working away from home and long commutes meant that I had very little time during the week to look after my pony. So it was a wonderful relief to find someone dedicated and reliable like Sara from Talk A Walk to help with checking on him and feeding, along with all the other chores, when I was unable to. Her years of experience from riding and owning horses have given her a good, wide knowledge base and excellent intuition and feeling for the horse, and I highly value her opinion when I have questions about his condition, health and general well-being.

Sara really loves animals and no job is too small or to big when it comes to ensuring they are safe and well looked after. As my pony suffers from sweet itch, she is excellent in the warmer weather with putting on and taking off his fly mask and sweet-itch rug as needed, applying fly spray or therapeutic creams to any raw areas.

I highly recommend Take A Walk to look after your pony, whether it be on a regular basis or occasionally when you go on holiday. It makes such a difference having peace of mind when you are away and knowing your pony will be well looked after and happy!
