Some of our amazing clients like to share their experience, below is just some of their kind words about Social Paws
Yogi - one-to-one training walks
"Helen has proved to be a huge help to me with my Swissie 'pup' Yogi whilst I underwent knee surgery and subsequent recovery. She formed a great bond with him and with her vast experience and knowledge not only helped by walking him but also kept up his training because although he is very large he is still a puppy. She kept consistency by using the same methods as he is used to but where needed gave me a lot of advice on how to overcome various issues I had with him. We still have a few things to sort with him but I know she will find a way to overcome them. Kindness, knowledge and love for the animals are the qualities that make her the perfect solution for your animal needs. Thank you so much Helen for all your help."
Senna - dog walking service for those who've recently had an operation
"Following two operations which left me with a very weak right arm, unable to throw a ball or hold a lead, Helen came to the rescue. Despite my protestations she even refused to take payment and preferred me to make a donation to the Cheltenham Animal Shelter - which I did, by way of cat supplies. Consequently she has spent the past couple of weeks visiting Senna Mitchell-Brown and taking him out for regular hour long exercise in the local park: he has become so attached to her that he waits at the window for her arrival now! Helen is a rare breed - a uniquely dedicated pet carer with exemplary qualifications, dedication and commitment, completely trustworthy and a joy to know. Having recently taken on a new puppy she has also given expert guidance and support which has proved invaluable - can not recommend Social Paws enough."
Kina - Puppy sitting and training
"Helen was able to puppy sit our 13 week old Schipperke puppy, Kina, while we were working away for 3 days. Helen met up with us beforehand to meet Kina and to learn about her sleeping, eating and training routine and was more than happy to maintain these during her puppy sit. Helen also ensured Kina got more comfortable to being handled and groomed too. At the end of the visit, Helen provided a summary of her service and observations about Kina which was very helpful. This is our first experience of using a puppy sitting service and we are very impressed and happy with Helen's caring approach and bespoke service. We would highly recommend her and will be using Social Paws services again - Thank you Helen!"
Boo – puppy training and dog walking
"I cannot recommend Helen and her services enough. Working for myself she is always flexible to fit Boo in whenever I need. She is brilliant with Boo and is a pleasure for us humans too! She always has a smile on her face and is able to help with hints and tips if problems arise with those pesky pets."
Tottie-Owen Smith, Cheltenham
Millie – dog walking and dog obedience
"It’s clear Helen has a natural affinity with dogs and she was able to quickly establish a strong positive connection with our puppy. We felt confident leaving our pup in Helen’s care whilst working and came home to a calm, contented dog who had obviously been well cared for. It’s also lovely to be able to chat to Helen about aspects of dog development and training. We have found Social Paws to be a reliable, economic and friendly service at all times."
