Customer Comments

'If you want peace of mind while you’re on holiday, Sophie & Martin are such lovely people and offer a fantastic service. I always worry about my cat  when I go on holiday, but Sophie & Martin popped in twice a day to feed him and give him a cuddle. They also e-mailed me every day and even sent photos, so I knew Boris was in good hands. Walking Miss Daisy goes above and beyond normal expectations to ensure that you and your pet are looked after in every way. I’ll be using them again shortly and know I will be able to have a relaxing break and that my cat will too! Keep up the great work!' JULIE (Boris)

"Walking Miss Daisy was the best thing to happen to me and my cat Lucy. Sophie and Martin looked after her quite a few times while I went on holiday, I was really pleased at the way they looked after her and also kept me in the loop with texts, emails and even photos, it gave me peace of mind that she was ok. I only wish that they had been going many years before as it is a wonderful service they offer and they come highly recommended. Well done guys keep up the good work." DIANE (Lucy)

"I’m so glad we chose Walking Miss Daisy to look after our dog on the occasion we are out of the house for too long. They are very flexible and always manage to fit in last minute requests and definitely deliver a great service in looking after our dog." KATIE (PJ) 

"Walking Miss Daisy is a thoroughly professional operation run by charming folks. I contacted them very late because we were apprehensive about taking our elderly cat to a cattery after a bad experience. They could not have been more obliging. Someone called every day and even watered our outside pots for us. We received daily emails to reassure us that all was well and were even sent a photograph of our cat looking thoroughly contented with the whole arrangement. They must be ok because our cat is quite shy and retiring but she took to them immediately and suffered no ill effects whatsoever from our extended absence." SUSAN (Tilly)

"My neighbour recommended 'Walking Miss Daisy'. Martin and Sophie looked after our cats Sox and Rufus for 2.1/2 weeks during our recent holiday and I felt perfectly happy leaving them in their care. Martin came and met the cats, one of whom is very shy. He was very flexible and quite happy to keep up their normal feeding routine. They also fed our pond fish each day. Our cats hate going to the cattery and Rufus in particular howls during the car journey, which is quite upsetting for us prior to going on holiday. Walking Miss Daisy is an excellent idea because cats like their own territory. They never go much further than our garden, so as long as they are fed, are very happy at home. I wish Martin and Sophie lots of luck with their business and have no doubt that it will do well." ANNE (Rufus & Sox)

"Tash spent a lovely week with Daisy and family, photos were e-mailed during my time away, texts also sent regularly to let me know how she was getting on. I would recommend Sophie and Martin to anyone considering dog-boarding. They went out of their way to make both Tash feel at home and ensure I could enjoy my holiday without any worries. Many thanks." SALLY (TASH)

"Hi! Sophie and Martin, I wanted to drop you a note to let you know how impressed and happy I am with the dog walking service you have provided. I know that Tommy is getting a full hour walk as he is happy and content when I come home from work. I know that he really likes you both.  Your service and approach are excellent, very calm and friendly, just right. I will definitely recommend your services to friends and colleagues." CAROLINE (TOMMY)

"Since employing Walking Miss Daisy to look after my cats I have noticed a remarkable difference when I come home, they are still happy! I have three Bengal cats which need lots of attention and food, Sophie & Martin visit twice a day to feed and play with them when my work takes me on my travels. Nothing is too much trouble, I get regular text messages to say how the cats are and on the odd occasion I forgotten something, usually cat litter! Sophie has helped out by getting it. I would definately recommend them, they obviously have a passion for animals and connect with them, fantastic job and will be using them again and again." MANDY (ARCHIE, TILLY & DAISY)

"Sophie and Martin provide an excellent and good value for money service. They are flexible in their approach, tailoring their service to the needs of the owners/pets. My dogs were very calm and content following a week-end of being looked after by Sophie and Martin - a marked difference from a stay in kennels." CATHERINE (BUDDY & POPPY)


"We needed to go away for a couple of weekends and called Walking Miss Daisy after getting a flyer through our door. Martin was very clear when explaining everything they do and what we need to do beforehand. We found it useful that the prices are listed on the website. It's really handy they are so close to where we live and are very flexible when picking our dog up and dropping her off. From seeing photos of her stay, our dog looked like she had a lovely time. We're pleased we've found a place where she can board that's kind and reasonably priced. We will use Walking Miss Daisy again when we go away" KATE (HONEY)


"I would happily recommend Martin and Sophie to my family and friends. I was concerned about leaving my new three legged friend Furby home alone but I needn't have been, he was purr-fectly looked after and happy :-)" DAWN (FURBY)

“Excellent service, both professional and personal! We got our cat from Cats Protection and having settled into our home we were reluctant to uproot him again, conveniently we received a flyer for Walking Miss Daisy around the same time and phoned to enquire. We were extremely impressed with the warm and polite reception we received from Martin and Sophie and seeing them immediately greet our cat and show him affection we knew we had chosen the best.Whilst away we were kept well up to date with our cats activities (often mischievous), in addition to the reassurance that our home was being looked after and regularly visited. Looking forward to our next trip away, and I am sure Obie (our cat) is looking forward to seeing Martin and Sophie again too!” JAMES & JAS (OBIE)

"I was so happy to receive personal text about my dog. The specialist service was invaluable when my flight was delayed and I was unable to collect him. Martin and Sophie let me collect him at 6am! A wonderful individual experience for both me and Rumi!?I would definitely use them again!" TRISH (RUMI)
