Layla and Darcy's owner: When we landed in the UK 3 years ago we knew we would be travelling and exploring endlessly and we quickly put our feelers out for a dog sitter we could trust. Luckily, I was handed one of Kelly’s business cards. It’s been a complete joy dealing with her and her husband. Between regular photos, updates, and quick messages, she manages to care for our furkids like they are her own. I truly can not say enough about Kelly at Kelly’s K9’s. She has been beyond reliable, trustworthy, kind and accommodating. Kelly has an outstanding rapport with others in the industry and is a great source for advice and all around care for your pet. Our two schnauzers adore her! We consider them having a holiday while we are travelling abroad. It’s a great feeling to know our furkids are in safe hands. It’s been an absolute pleasure. We will miss her dearly once we return back to Canada…..the dogs will miss her even more. (2012)

Toby's owner: I'd like to say a big thank you for looking after Toby so well, we think he was missing you as he wouldn't come away from the front door for a while. We had a lovely day at the flower show and it was made that much more enjoyable because we knew Toby was in the the best of hands. Hopefully when we have to go house hunting you might not be too booked up, so will contact you again then. (2011)

Jack's owner: Thank you so much for looking after Jack and taking such good care of him. On his return home he sulked for about 5 hours!! I can tell he had a great time with you He had a fantastic time with you all and I had him weighed and he lost just over a kilo !!! I was able to completely relax and enjoy my holiday knowing he was having just as much fun. Thanks again. x x x. (2009)

Alfie's owner:
Kelly has been walking Alfie for 3 months now and she has been just fantastic! Its been lovely going to work and not having to worry about Alfie as I know he's having a lovely walk in varying different locations and when I get home he's clean, happy and very chilled. I have never used a dog walking service before but I would have no hesitation in recommending Kelly and Alfie loves her! (2010)

Daisy's owner: We are delighted with the service provided by Kelly. Daisy is always calm when we return from work, indicating that she has had a good run, she is also always clean!! She is now more in control and gets very excited if you mention Kelly's name!! We are very grateful and would be very sad if you let us go!! (2009)

Tui's owner: When I found Kelly's K9s I totally landed on my feet. New to the area and a working full time I was very keen to find someone who could give my 10 year old Springer a daily walk to break up her long day. She has been an invaluable source of recommendations for vets and grooming services. Kelly has been brilliant with Tui, giving her loads of fantastic exercise with walks in a variety of locations and this, along with the company of other dogs, has really put a spring back in her step. Kelly's home boarding service has also been a massive help and I'm told Tui fits in like one of the family. Regular updates and photos as to how she is doing also provides a lot of comfort. Kelly's K9s has far exceeded my hopes and expectations and is so much more than the dog walking service I set out to find. All in all I can't recommend Kelly highly enough and would now be lost without her. (2009)

Dolly's owner: Just a few lines to say thank you so much for being a professional, approachable person and offering a friendly service. You were one of the first people to help with Dolly when she was just a little puppy and she absolutely loved you - you could tell that when we saw you out walking on a few occasions!!! You helped me in many ways with advice and general care for Dolly and made me understand her on many levels! I would definately recommend you to friends or in fact anyone else that wanted dog walking/sitting services. I felt entrusted with your services right from day one. (2009)

Izzi's owner: I am delighted with the service from Kelly's K9s. Izzi is so excited when Kelly arrives she loves her very much. I am a very pleased customer. (2008)

Alice and Alfies owner: "Kelly has been walking my two miniature schnauzers Alice and Alfie three times a week. Over this time I have nothing but good things to say about Kelly. I was a little apprehensive at first as this was the first time I had used a dog walking service and Alice can be difficult with people she doesn’t know, but she took to Kelly straight away. With Alice's approval and Kelly's calm cheerful manner the first time we met put my mind at rest immediately. Alfie was only 11 weeks old when Kelly started walking him and she has been a great help in his training, he loves Kelly to bits and gets very excited to see her. In all Kelly offers much more than you would expect of a dog walking service, I never have any worries that Kelly will look after them both like they are her own. I would recommend Kelly's K9 to anyone she provides a very professional service and obviously is someone who cares greatly for the dog wellbeing". (2008)

Dingo's owner: Thank you for the wonderful job you did with Dingo. I know he enjoyed your company as my neighbour was around when you opened the door to him on your second visit and they saw how he greated you! Many thanks. (2008)

Buddy's owner: Things are going well, he seems really settled when we are arriving home. (2009)

Margo's owner: Kelly has been looking after Margo three times a week since she was ten weeks old. I have found Kelly to be a life saver! She has been great at following the training guidelines that we have been using for Margo and also at making suggestions when what I have been doing is not working. I have found Kelly to be trustworthy, reliable and flexible and would highly recommend her to anyone. (2008)

Bounce and Tilly's owner: Thank you for doing all those walks in the snow this week. I was most impressed that you carried on, well done and thank you from Bounce too.(2008)

Bonnie and Charlie's owner: We first met having moved to Fareham with 2 dogs whilst still working full time inChichester. Walking them and keeping them safe, secure and happy was my number 1 concern. You were fantastic and put my mind at rest immediately. The dogs loved you and were clearly very happy and well walked as they were usually fast asleep on the settee when I got home! It was also really reassuring to receive the texts when you initially started walking them. (2009)

Holly's owner: We spent a long time trying to find a dog walker that was flexible. With my husbands job, some weeks we could need Holly taken out once, then next week 4 days. Kelly has been brilliant, especially with my last minute texts when we have forgotten to book her in. Holly clearly loves the long and varied walks, shes still asleep when I get home. Its great for me to know she isn't home alone and instead out having fun with other dogs, its has also helped with her socialising, she is a lot more comfortable with other dogs now. Having never used a dog walking service before I was apprehensive, however, I feel I get a lot more than I ever anticipated, Kelly clearly cares about the animals she looks after, her knowledge on diet, behaviour and her overall compassion for them is what makes for such a great service. Thank you Kelly!! (2010)

Dougies owner: Kelly has been walking Dougie since he was eight months old and she has been invaluable ever since. She is professional, reliable and Dougie adores her! Dougie loves going out and about with Kelly and the gang, he is very sociable with other dogs and behaves really well off the lead, all thanks to Kelly's training. Dougie has been to stay with Kelly and her husband and we can relax knowing that he is happy, settled and very well cared for. Kelly sends regular updates on Dougie's holidays and walks via email and text which we love to receive. Kelly is much more than a dog walker to us, she is the first person I contact when I need "doggy advise" and she has become a friend of the family. (2010)


* If you have used Kelly's K9s before and would like to share your views on the service we provide then please feel free to contact us.

Mr B’s owner: 'Kelly has been walking our Vizsla, Bentley for the last 3 1/2 yrs. I am sure he thinks of her as his second mum! It is lovely to see the pictures of him and all the other dogs having fun walking in different places and I know that he is being well looked after. Kelly is completely reliable and very accommodating. It is obvious that this isn't just a business for her, and she clearly loves animals'. (2014)

Pudding’s owner: We met Kelly when we adopted a Serbian rescue dog she was fostering. We were so impressed with her passion, energy and most importantly kindness to dogs that we entrusted our poodle shitzu cross, Pudding, to her care on weekly doggie walks. Pudding is a very sensitive and intelligent little dog and had been walked before by someone else, but was not really happy. We stopped this immediately, feeling we might not risk it again.

We are glad we did because Pudding has only been out with Kelly a small number of times but she is already developing a really positive attachment to Kelly, is really excited when Kelly comes to take her out and so happy when she returns. Pudding would just as gladly go home with Kelly as come back to us and this is a measure of real success in such a short period of time, it speaks volumes. We have now increased the walks because we are so happy with the service and Pudding gets such a lot out of her time with Kelly and the other dogs she plays with.

We can not thank Kelly enough for her care and kindness to Pudding, she puts the dogs first every time and therefore we would strongly recommend her to anyone thinking of using her services” (2014)

Ozzie’s owner: . “Kelly has looked after Ozzie for us on numerous occasions and is a dedicated and passionate lover of animals. She is currently looking after Ozzie again for us as we have emigrated to Australia and quarantine rules wouldn't allow Ozzie to travel with us. Kelly offered to look after Ozzie for the period until he is eligible to join us down under. We had no worries about leaving him with Kelly as we know he is being really well looked after. We are very comfortable in the knowledge that Ozzie is in safe hands and a very happy doggie. Thank you once again Kelly for helping us out and like I've said before ,you are one very special lady. One in a million” (2014)

Roxy’s owner: “I love my dog just like one of my children and worry about her when I’m at work or away from the house for long periods of time. Kelly takes this worry away from you. You know on the days Kelly walks Roxy she will have had fun that day and I can come home from work knowing that she has been walked and entertained whist I’m at work.   Kelly has also looked after Roxy whilst we have been away on holiday and always gives me updates on how she is doing and the mischief she is getting up too, via email or on her Facebook page. This is a real bonus as you can relax knowing she is being take care of and not just bored. Kelly is always reliable and has helped me out many times at short notice as well as supplying dog food for me. She is full of advice for a first time dog owner like me which is invaluable, Kelly really does make my life a little easier” (2014)

Bailey’s owner; “ We have an extremely happy and contented chocolate Labrador who absolutely adores Kelly’s walks and boarding facilities. He is always excited to see her and knowing he’s so well looked after ensures that our minds are at rest at those times we are not around. Kelly is completely reliable and a wealth of information about all things doggy. We are so lucky to have found her and would thoroughly recommend her services” (2014)

Fudge’s owner: 'As a veterinary surgeon it is extremely important to me that anyone who looks after my animals is competent, professional, caring, and reliable. Kelly is all of these and more!!!! I was quite nervous when I had to go away for a few days and was unable to take our dog Fudge with me I didn't want to put her in kennels and no one was available to look after her. After meeting Kelly and seeing how natural she was with Fudge I felt very relaxed about Fudge going to stay with Kelly. Kelly was able to keep me updated on how Fudge was getting on while I was away which really did help any worries I may have had about Fudge settling in. I would highly recommend Kelly for both dog walking and boarding - she is amazing!!'  Susan Andresier BVetMed MRCVS. (2012)
