“I have used elite pet services for a couple of years now after picking up their card in the vet. My dog Nelson loves being picked up in the doggy van and looks out of the window waiting for it! He has so much fun playing with the other dogs and being fussed that he is utterly exhausted when he is delivered home.
Andrea coped well when Nelson took ill once and helped diagnose a chronic condition. I thank Andrea for her help and support over the past few years, often taking Nelson at very short notice. I trust elite implicitly with my precious boy and would be happy to recommend them to anyone.
They are friendly, honest and reasonably priced. Thank you Andrea, Billy and Jade, not just dog sitters but now dear friends too.”
“I first met Andrea after a hip operation, straight away there was a rapport with my two Shih Tzu, Henry and Hetty. Since then Andrea has been a god send I trust her implicitly with them, she has an affinity with them, I call her the ‘Dog Whisperer’. What more can I add, she’s my rock with them. Thank you Andrea!”
“Elite Pet Services have been walking and looking after Lottie for 3 years. They are friendly, reliable and trustworthy people. They run a very professional service and understand your dogs needs. I fully recommend them as does Lottie.”
“Andrea has looked after my dog, Norma-Jean, for just over a year, since she was a puppy. I am so glad that I found her. She runs an absolutely brilliant service. She is totally reliable and trustworthy, and just fantastic at what she does. It is truly a pleasure to know her. Anyone looking for doggy daycare look no further!”
“I don’t know where I would be without Billy and Andrea’s help walking our Labrador Toby… I trust them to come into our house when we’re at work and know everything is sorted. Toby loves his walks and occasional day care. What more can I say than 5 star service!”
“Elite pet services is indeed the best I’ve received having used about five in the past with various dogs over the years.
Andrea is only human but you wouldn’t think so as she never has time off sick or indeed for a well earned holiday. She has stayed in our house while we had a short break and is trustworthy, honest and very caring not only to our dog but to me also. Our dog loves her and so do we.
Elite Pet Services and Andrea would be an impossible act to follow. Andrea is very professional.”
“I have known Andrea since my dog Austin was 8 weeks old. Having helped me to train him I have continued to use Elite Pet Services. Austin is almost 9 years old now and is walked by Elite Pet Services at least 3 times a week and often more.
In that time I have found them totally professional and reliable.
Andrea has a true understanding of dogs and their behaviour. She is kind and caring of him and I can trust her to give him the best possible care.
I would recommend Elite Pet Services to others!”
“I have known Andrea since our dog Bobby was a puppy, she was recommended by a friend. Andrea helped us with Bobby’s puppy training and came on some of his first walks. Since then we have seen her regularly as she now has Bobby two days a week. Bobby really looks forward to going on his walks with Andrea, Jayde and all his friends! They take Bobby to many different locations. Andrea and Jayde are reliable and I would gladly recommend Elite Pet Services.”
“Elite Pet Services has walked our dog, Millie, for the last five years.
Millie is walked twice a day, three days a week and we know she is well looked after by the whole family.
On occasions Millie is day cared and is treated like a princess.
Andrea is very dog knowledgeable and always happy to offer advice and share her experiences.
When Millie was very poorly Andrea sent daily texts to check on her. When Millie was recovering Andrea, Billy and Jade did one on one short walks until she was fully recovered and able to be integrated back into the pack, showing their adaptability to our dogs need.
We wouldn’t know what to do without Elite Pet Services being part of our lives and we would like to thank them for everything they do for us.
Nicky, Trevor and Millie Smith.”
“We were really nervous about changing dog walkers as our boy is very nervy and can be reactive. We needn’t have worried and in fact wish we had changed earlier! Andrea and Jade are so professional and amazing with our dog. They have gone at his pace and gradually helped build his confidence which in turn has made him happier and calmer. Andrea is always easy to get hold of if we have any questions and she has given us private lessons on how to help build our dog’s confidence. Our dog loves Andrea and Jade and I know they love him back (which is just what you want from someone who is looking after a member of your family). I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Elite Pet Services. Thank you Andrea and Jade.”
“Hi Andrea, our puppy Poochon, Winnie has been going out on walks with Andrea and Jayde since the beginning of the year and we couldn’t be more happy.
From the moment we met Andrea, her love for dogs shone through, offering us invaluable advice before her walks started. I have also met Billy who was very friendly and helpful.
Our aim for Winnie was for her to be well socialised and enjoy off the lead walks. I can certainly say that Winnie is so well socialised, she gets on with all dogs, large or small and is very confident with them. This is attributed to Elite pet services. We are so happy we can enjoy relaxing walks with her knowing she is good with other dogs and obedient off her lead.
Daily photographs are posted on Facebook which we enjoy seeing, my daughter remarked “Winnie really is having the time of her life with Andrea”
We have used the day care service which was great for us to be able to go out as a family whilst Winnie was well cared for by her friends.
We are very lucky to have found a local family run company that we trust implicitly with our doggy, knowing she is going to have a good time everytime she goes out, continued advice and day care for when we need to leave her for longer periods is just great!!
Thank you, Sue and Richard.”
“I changed to Elite Pet Services after my last dog walker could no longer cater for my ad hoc requirements. After meeting Andrea for the first time I knew my dog was in very capable and loving hands! From that point on I have been quite overwhelmed; Andrea and Billy have gone above and beyond to help me and adapt to my dog. It couldn’t be more different to my previous experience with dog walkers.
Andrea always gives honest feedback after every walk and have recommended an excellent trainer – even practice the training when they have him. They are totally reliable and clearly have a real passion for pets. Could not recommended their services more.
Thank you so much! Sarah Frost.”
“Andrea and Billy were recommended to me by another dog walker who wasn’t comfortable with taking on my size dogs. I became unable to walk my German shepherd bitch and akita cross collie male after breaking my foot. Andrea met them and her calm and confident manner left me with no concerns about her or my dogs. They have become an absolute godsend taking my dogs out on the most amazing walks taking wonderful care of them. They sit by the door waiting for Billy to come and adore him. This in itself shows what wonderful people they and what care they take. They are very flexible and understanding to what we needed. I have recommended them already and will continue to do so.”
