Customer feedback

I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Allison to look after your dog or cat as either a stay at home pet or a holiday stay in her home.

Allison has looked after our golden retriever Molly for several years. It was usual for Molly when walking past Allison’s house to lead me down her path on days we weren’t due to go there. I also met Allison’s husband and children while walking through our local woods and Molly bounded up to the family like a long lost relative!

She was always made to feel a part of the family and I felt as though Allison made Molly feel that way. In the later years when Molly was getting old Allison always took all her needs into consideration and met those needs and more. She also cared for our cat which she visited twice daily to feed. This was of enormous relief to us as it made us feel secure that Allison was seen visiting every day.

Sadly Molly is no longer with us but I can honestly say animals have a feel for people who care deeply for them and Allison was one of those people. She is a professional lady who is conscientious and above all kind and welcoming.

My family and Molly were privileged to have met her and I am sure you will feel the same way too.

I use HoundzAround on a regular basis when I am on holiday to feed my 2 cats and gold fish.
Allison also keeps an eye on my house for me, bringing in the post and making sure there are no problems.
She will pop in twice a day to feed my cats, change their water and makes sure they are happy.
I have no problems with HoundzAround looking after my cats and fish.
They are well looked after.

We use HoundzAround. The owner, Allison, has looked after our Staffordshire bull terrier, Gypsie since she was a puppy and boards with her when we are on holiday and for the odd weekend.
In her younger days, Gypsie used to enjoy long walks with Allison but now that she is old and suffers from arthritis she is unable to walk far. Allison is mindful that my dog needs a walk, but not for too long, as she still loves to go out, no matter the weather.
Gypsie needs to be given various medications each day and Allison ensures these are taken at the correct times.
I can honestly say she is well looked after, having her own enjoyable holiday, receiving lots of love and attention from both Allison and her children.
Allison has a lot of patience and has affection for all the dogs she is responsible for. She caters for their needs and enjoys looking after them. She is passionate about what she does.
If you are looking for somebody to walk your dog or look after it while you are away, I can’t think of no better person or family home for them to be with.
Happy walking

My precious Alfie has been with Allison for nearly four years now and knowing Alfie is so well cared for enables me to work the long hours without worrying. The professional, friendly and flexible service enables me to get on and the best bit is that he loves you and your family like his own. He gets lots of cuddles, is thoroughly spoilt and always leaves with a wagging tail.
I always recommend you and HoundzAround to other dog owners
