We have used Lisa for about two years as a dog walker/ sitter for our two labs. She has always proven able to manage two large dogs with ease and compassion as their needs changed over this period. My boys love her and get very enthused when meeting her outside of dog walking. Great communication, great flexible service and just one lovely woman who just understands dogs ( and their owners).
Would highly recommend her services.

Having recently moved to the area, we needed were looking for a reliable and regular pop-in service for our french bulldog Piglet. Lisa has been an absolute star and Piglet loves her lunchtime visits. Lisa provides daily updates and lets us know how each visit has gone. On the rare occasion that Lisa has been unable to attend, she has let us know in advance. We have had no problems, its great to know Piglet is in safe hands and we would recommend Paws a While With Me to anyone looking for top rate pet services.

Thank you for all you help this year. It was a real concern when we moved that we may struggle to find someone to look after all the gang and house so we feel very fortunate to have found you so thank you very much :-)

Bentley, my Tibetan Terrier, has just had a week with Lisa. I had no worries at all, each time we met before the holiday I felt at ease with Lisa, and Ii could see Bentley felt at home. When we left him he was settled, in the house and the garden, and Lisa sent regular e mails and photos to let me know he was ok. When I collected him he was so happy, and obviously glad to see me but I could tell he had enjoyed his stay with Lisa and Colin! I will certainly recommend this business, its not a business, its a home from home

Lisa is the most compassionate, lovely person you could have to look after your dog. Coco has been there for two weeks and we never once worried that she would be unhappy, many photos and updates from Lisa assured us that Coco had really had become part of their family and was socialising well Colin, Lisa's own dog �. We would highly recommend Lisa she is a very caring person who obviously adores animals especially the ones she has in her care.

We have just returned from a week in Snowdonia and Lisa has provided a first class service looking after our 4 rescue rabbits, providing them with a clean environment, fresh food and water and play every day. They all look very happy on our return. Thank you Lisa. A very dependable and professional service :-)

Lisa has been a lifesaver! We got Tinkerbell our lurcher puppy, and 2 weeks later I went into hospital, and was unable to walk for months. She had very little to no training and Lisa was very helpful teaching her the basics while out on her daily walks with our other dog Gilbert. She gradually introduced socialisation walks, so now Tink is well behaved with other dogs and a pleasure to walk. She has also helped when Gilbert had back issues, walking him on lead which isn’t easy with an exuberant lurcher wanting to play! The dogs love her so much that Tink constantly tries to escape and go home with her! She has also done a great “dropping” service when we had to go away for a day, which was a great help. Highly recommended.

Lisa looked after our beloved mature 12 year old cocker spaniel to be part of her and Colin's home for 3 weeks. All my thanks go out to Lisa for the love and care she gave Tore. During Tore's last week with Lisa, she was unwell with colitis. Lisa did everything to help her, taking her to our Vets, medicating her, and finally cleaning up after her. Tore is now home and doing well thanks to Lisa's excellent care of her. She is on a road to recovery. Many thanks Lisa for everything, and I know Tore is thankful too. I hate leaving Tore, but I am feeling very happy that Lisa will always care and love her. I recommend Paws a While with me to anyone who wants their pets well looked after.

This is the 3rd Year that Lisa has looked after Bella for us - we've loved the updates and have come home to a very contented happy cat. She would hate kennels so this is ideal for us and her. Once again thank you so much for the great care you take looking after Bella.

Lisa has recently had Winston our Labrador. Last time we went away we put him in kennels and he didn't have the best experiences, so we looked at an alternative for him. We came across Lisa through facebook. Impressed with her reviews we arrange a meet for her and Winston prior to him staying with her. She is very patient and very friendly. She has been fabulous with Winston during our time away. Winston is a highly excitable and boisterous dog and Lisa has looked after him fabulously. We have had constant updates and pictures to see how he's getting on with his doggy holiday! Highly recommend to anyone! Will be using her services next time we go away for sure! :)

Our lab Daisy has just spent the week with Lisa. Daisy can be a bit of a boisterous dog, she is only 14 months old. I was worried about her, the pond & house but Lisa didn't seemed fazed and was very reassuring that all would be fine. We received lots of updates via Facebook & a text cos we didn't have wifi on holiday.
Lisa has looked after Daisy wonderfully with 2 lovely walks in the forest each day and a nice cozy sofa bed to flake on after she's finished playing with her little pup friends. I am very happy with all that Lisa has provided for Daisy and highly recommend her. We will be contacting Paws a while with me for future stays :)
Many thanks Lisa and Co x

Lisa has again been brilliant. She has just looked after Max the naughty springador!!!
Completely unphased by Max and his cheeky traits - Max always returns home relaxed and happy. This is invaluable for us as Max wouldn't have survived a week in kennels!! We will be using Lisa again (obviously!!) and recommending to all we know and beyond.
Thanks VERY much Lisa x

Purrfect service
June 2016.

We have just returned from a fortnight’s holiday to find two very relaxed and happy cats. This is the longest we have left them for in ages, so it was a great relief, although I knew they were in safe hands. Lisa has been looking after our cats now for nearly two years, she is totally reliable and very thorough in her care for them. Leaving cats in their own environment when you have to go away seems so much kinder, and with Lisa on hand this is undoubtedly the best choice for us. We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Lisa and the excellent Paws a While service.

Puppy home boarding
We have quite a nervous Sprocker pup who has stayed with Lisa a few times now. It's great to see him jump straight in to the back of her van willingly and he's always over the moon to see her.
Just did his first overnight without any problems. Highly recommend if you dog needs a little socialisation with other dogs, but would be scared if he had to join a huge pack of dogs for the day. Lisa's own dog is very tolerant of annoying young pups.

Purrfect - cat sitting
Once again we booked Paws A While With Me to look after our 3 cats whilst we had a few days away. We knew they were in safe hands and would be happy whilst we were gone but the text updates and photo's were brilliant and we enjoyed reading the report about their antics when we got home! Thanks Lisa as always :-)

Pampurred pooch
"I was looking for someone that would treat my dog as I do, with love, cuddles and the occasional treat and Lisa ticks all those boxes and much more. Lisa house/dog sat during our recent wedding and I felt so at ease leaving my furbaby that has never been kennelled with her. She regularly walks my pup and I'm very happy with this service-long may it continue! This lady will go the extra mile for you and your pet, no pun intended!

extra exceptional pet care
Lisa`s standard of care is exceptional. After 1 of our 4 cats became unwell she was able to swap a pop in visit to a stay over night visit. Thank you so much for taking care of our precious cats. They are always happy, relaxed and calm on our return home. We would highly recommend this service. Thank you

Cat pop in service
I would recommend Lisa to anyone. She looked after my older cat for the 1st time recently and I felt very reassured leaving him in her very capable hands. She's very caring, and her passion for animals shows throughout as she added lovely touches to the service such as a review of how he was & a photo. Thanks again Lisa! My cat loved all the pampering to and fuss. You've been very understanding to his needs and made him feel very calm and content. X

So grateful
My dogs had been in boarding kennels before but I was worried to leave them for more than a week as they wouldn't have had their walks and my German shepherd had not long lost his best mate so I wanted him to have his home comforts which he and my other dog certainly did. From the moment we went to see Lisa to picking them up after the holiday, I felt nothing but confidence that they would be looked after. I really wasn't expecting to see pictures of both dogs walking off their leads after a few days and settled on Lisa's comfy couch!!! I couldn't wait to pick them up and hurried to get them, only to find Saxon waiting in Lisa's van for his morning walk and not particularly fussed that we had arrived to take him and Evie home. Words can not express my appreciation to Lisa for her professionalism and caring nature towards Saxon and Evie.

Thank you again

Beyond Fabulous
There are not enough words to describe the quality of service you will receive from Lisa.
I am one of the fussiest, more worried owners of 2 dogs who are my world. Lisa is the only professional I have ever trusted to care for them and she excelled all expectations. My girls adored her, we had detailed notes and lots of photographs of her time with them and I was more than happy leaving them in her capable hands.

Will use her again and shout her name from the rooftops!
Thank you!

Staying over
Mac our 13 year old Springer was so well looked after he almost didn't want to go home. Was really happy to see Lisa again on his second sleepover. All his old age needs were met and he loved being part of the family.
