“We first met Amy (and of course Poppy) back in April 2013 as we were taking George and Charley for a run around the Old Deer Park in Richmond, and thank goodness we did. With us just having recently moved back to the UK and both starting new jobs, our life was more than a little chaotic at this point and right from day 1 Amy helped ensure that George and Charley were not affected by any of this. Friendly, reliable, super organised and very, very flexible (thank goodness!), Amy has really made our dog parenting lives a lot easier. During our 2 years using Poppy-n-pals we have used the house visit, group walk, individual walk and overnight dog-sitting services and never been anything but happy with the care that George and Charley receive. They absolutely love seeing their Auntie Amy (and Poppy of course) and always come back happy and completely shattered! Which is excellent!”

Mr L, owner of George & Charley, Miniature Daschunds, 3 years & 2 years.

“I was very nervous about leaving my gorgeous girls for a whole week, but thanks to Amy I am pleased to say that they didn’t miss me at all (I think she may have spoiled them!) It’s such a relief to know that I can go away and rely on a friendly, local animal-lover to give them a bit of a fuss.”

Ms F, owner of Harriet & Truffle, Tortie cats, 2 years old.

“We would 100% recommend Poppy-n-Pals, the service provided by Amy and Ben is absolutely fantastic and I trust them fully with our dog Max.”

Miss A, owener of Max, Cocker Spaniel, 13 months old.

“I have been very happy with this service and trust Poppy-n-Pals with my pet completely. They are very competent pet sitters and I would always recommend them to friends and family.”

Miss M, owner of Tussy, Moggy, 13 years old.

“Poppy-n-Pals have been a life saver. Our cats don’t have to go into ‘prison’ any more whenever we go on holiday. When we return they are happy and look well fed (they didn’t eat in the cattery and came back looking ill). They are not the most trusting of animals but they let Amy pet them from the first time they met her. Amy has always made time for our cats, even when I’ve forgotten to book her well in advance. I would definitely recommend Poppy-n-Pals, they are trustworthy, reliable and love animals.”

Miss T, owner of Frank & Bob, Moggies, 5 years old.

“Amy and now Ben as well have been coming to walk Skippy for quite a few months now and are totally reliable which is important when I am working. They seem to genuinely care for him and he is always excited to see them. They communicate well so there are no grey areas as you know exactly what is happening. I would thoroughly recommend them to anyone.”

Miss G, owner of Skip, Cockerpoo, 4 years old.

“Amy looks after my cats, Jimbo and Frankie, from time to time, when I’m away. She clears up the odd “accident” with good humour, and the food and water bowls are always well stocked. When she met them for the first time, it was clear that she has a way with animals. I think she makes time for play and cuddles when she visits (at least as important to me as the practical chores), and the boys are always very happy and relaxed when I return.”

Ms A, owner of Lucky and Jimbo, DSH cats.

“Poppy-n-pals is absolutely brilliant. Always reliable and enthusiastic and willing to help if possible. Cannot recommend them highly enough. Pickle adores his outings with Poppy.”

Mr F, owner of Pickle, Jack Russell Terrier.

“Wookie has been with Poppy-n-Pals since he was a tiny puppy. He LOVES going for walks with Amy and Ben and goes bonkers when they come to pick him up. We totally trust them to look after him and he clearly has a great time. Amy and Ben don’t just walk the dogs. They build a relationship with each one and we feel lucky to have such a caring team looking after him. Amy is 100% reliable and has never let us down. I have no hesitation in recommending Poppy-n-Pals.”

Mrs B, owner of Wookie, Border Terrier, 22 months old.

“Charlie loves his walks with Amy, great service, flexible & reliable – thanks!”

Mrs P, owner of Charlie, Border Collie, 11 years old.

“I have been really pleased with the service Poppy-n-Pals have provided. I am totally confident that Wilf is being well looked after and more importantly that he is enjoying himself. He is exhausted (not to mention filthy!) after his walks which is a sure sign he has had a good time! Wilfy is very nervy around strangers and people in general so I was worried he wouldn’t take well to the walks without me, but am pleased to say he is so excited when he is picked up for his walks he can hardly contain his excitement!”

Mrs B, owner of Wilf, Cockerpoo, 2 years old.

“Im extremely happy with the service offered and would definitely recommend Amy and crew to friends. Indie loves her walks and you can always see a difference in her, if she doesn’t go. I’m forever changing times/days for her walks, but Amy is always very accommodating. Overall, I’m very confident in Amy and trust her with my little princess.”

Miss K, owner of Indie, Chihuahua.
