Hi Laura,

Thank you for looking after Ben, very pleased with the service you provided, and would not hesitate to ask for your help again. 

Good rates charged and reliable.

​My cat was happy and well when I arrived home.

Especially pleased that, unexpectedly, my mail was placed on a table away from Ben and awaiting my return.

Many Thanks.

Max, a strapping cross Collie/Lab, hates to admit he's claustrophobic and scared witless of fireworks.

Snoops, a Jack Russell and ferocious hunter of squeaky balls, hates to admit that his eyesight is so poor he can't actually see his prey unless in front of his nose.

Sheryl, proud rescue dog owner, hates to have to leave the care of her "babies" to anyone else - apart from Laura, who looks after them as if they were her own.

Laura is reliable, trustworthy, punctual, flexible - and an absolute godsend. The only person, apart from "proud owner" who can coax claustrophobic Max back to the house after a walk, and the only person, apart from family, who little abused and almost blinded Snoops will cuddle up to.

Its a big THANK YOU, Laura, for all your help!

I have known Laura since July 2009, when due to my health problems she began to take my Sheltie, Jonty, out for his daily exercise. This has solved a big problem and has meant that I can continue to enjoy Jonty's company. 

I have found Laura to be a quiet and unassuming young lady who is totally honest, reliable and willing to help where ever she can. Laura understands and has a great interest in all animals. Her affinity with dogs is clear to see. She has two of her own with whom she thoroughly enjoys agility exercises.

I am extremely grateful for the service she provides and Jonty adores her.

Laura has been reliable and flexible when required, it has been a great relief for the last few months being able to go to work knowing that 'Jack' will be exercised by someone who is knowledgable and understanding of his dislike of some other dogs!

I would not hesitate to recommend her and intend to call on her services again in the future.

Best wishes, Mary and Phil

Laura has been looking after our Basset Fauve for over two years at least 3 times a week and holidays and I don't quite know what we would do without her. She never fails to turn up when asked, is very accommodating at short notice and entirely trustworthy. The best testimonial must be from Bella as she is always delighted to see Laura and can't wait to jump into her spot in the back of the van.


Laura has looked after our dogs Rory and Roo for 4 years. Laura is highly reliable and has carried out all her duties in a very professional and caring way. Indeed on several occasions she has gone beyond expectation to ensure the well being of our dogs. What makes Laura's service exceptional is her genuine regard and fondness for animals. When our elderly dog, Rory, fell ill on a walk she carried him home and arranged for urgent veterinary attention. We really would not have been able to manage without her.​​



Many thanks for looking after the menagerie and the house for two weeks last month. You were extremely professional, enthusiastic and trustworthy.

Knowing that you were at home made our holiday stress free! Looking after 4 dogs, 30 chickens, 10 guinea pigs, 3 rabbits and the fish pond must of been a great challenge.

We would not hesitate to ask you to look after our house and animals in the future.

Many Thanks

Danni and Craig Routledge.

​Hi Laura,

Thank you for doing a good job with regards to looking after Ben.

Especially grateful for providing text feedback.

Kind Regards.

Dear Laura,

Thank you so much for looking after Monty whilst we were in New Zealand. He was obviously very happy and extremely well cared for. I'm afraid he's a bit grubbier around the edges now!! Thank you also for your lead work with him - a vast improvement.

​Sue, Bob and Monty

What would be do without lovely Laura?

We have been lucky enough to have Laura's help for the last 3 years.

We always have a fantastic service. I feel totally at ease leaving my animals in her care (I am totally neurotic when it comes to my pets - so to have this trust in Laura is very high praise indeed!) Ark Animals is a very professional service, 2nd to none.

Thank you Laura from Wellie the cat and the chickens - Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Ginger, Ivy and Berry.

​When we acquired our Cocker Spaniel puppy 2 1/2 years ago we knew we would need someone to walk him 3-4 days a week. Some friends recommended Laura and we have never looked back. Oscar took to her straightaway and we have always felt totally confident about leaving him in her care. In addition to the daily walks he has often stayed with her overnight when we have sometimes asked her to give him a bath or a trim. As first time dog owners, Laura has been a great source of advice and support. She is totally reliable and trustworthy, giving us plenty of notice if she is taking a holiday. She has never had to cancel because of ill health. I don't know how we would manage without her!


Hi Laura,

Thank you very much for taking Tess to hydrotherapy at Woof N Water, we really appreciate it. It is great to see her using her leg again now after her operation.


​Dear Laura,

Thank you for giving me such lovely long walks when mum and dad were ill!

Love Doris

Laura has been walking my dog Cody, an 11 year old Golden Retriever, twice weekly for around two years now. On these days, Cody is alone at home and there are only so many hours a dog can sleep on a sofa!! Laura has proved reliable, honest, accommodating when extra walks are required and great at communication.

It takes a lot to move a comfortable Retriever from a chair, but I am told he meets Laura at the door when her professionally equipped van arrives to collect him - that's got to mean he enjoys the service Laura supplies.

​Many Thanks. Chris.

Dear Laura,

Just a quick note to say how pleased Annette and I were with the services you provided the other day. Its very reassuring to know you can go away for a few days and know your animals are being loved and taken care of by someone who cares about them as much as their owners do.

The chickens seemed to have laid twice as many eggs as normal and the dogs were exhausted!! I don't know what you did but rest assured we will certainly be calling upon your excellent services again in the near future.

Once again many thanks.

​Kind Regards

Ricky Thomas.

Laura has been of real value to our family life. Without her fantastic walking service it would not have been possible for us to have such a happy and healthy Golden Retriever. Drizzle, our 3 year old dog, has benefited from her daily visits, where he gets the opportunity to not only have fun exercise while we are at work but also to socialise with other dogs, which has made him tolerant and happy in the company of others. 

Laura is reliable, flexible, professional and easy to contact. She has provided dog sitting services which have been far superior to any kennels, leading us to think Drizzle has had even more of a holiday than us! We cannot recommend Laura too highly, neither can Drizzle.

Laura has been looking after Jasper since January 2012. It has been a great help knowing I can go to work and not have to worry about him.

Laura has always been reliable and flexible when we need her and is always contactable - responding to texts and emails in a timely fashion.

Laura also often leaves me notes telling me what Jasper has been up to which make me smile and are greatly appreciated. I would not hesitate in recommending Laura.

Thanks, Michelle

Welcome to Ark Animals

Laura looked after our 2 guinea pigs while we had a 2 week holiday. It was great to know they were in safe hands and being well cared for. When we got back they looked well cared for and healthy. We would certainly let Laura look after them again if we went on holiday. Laura also regularly clips their nails for us as well and they are very happy while she does this.


I have no hesitation in recommending Laura as an excellent dog walker. She has never let me down and Beau is always pleased to see her. I can go to work with the peace of mind that Laura will take Beau out later in the day for me.

Mrs Styles

We have found Laura to be flexible, trustworthy and reliable. Above all our dogs clearly like her, look forward to their walks with her and we know that they are well looked after while we are at work.


​Laura has looked after my dog on a number of occasions and I have found her to be reliable, flexible and trustworthy. She has excellent experience of caring for domestic animals, and my dog Pepsi is always pleased to see her. I would therefore have no hesitation in recommending her services to anyone requiring any type of pet care.

​Mrs K

The boys are always excitedly and expectantly waiting for Laura's arrival and she clearly has a high standard of care combined with affection and compassion​ for the animals she looks after. We would wholeheartedly recommend Laura's service to anyone.
