Chris and Taff are amazing. They've looked after our dog since she was 8 weeks old. She loves her. They are very flexible too, we've used them regularly for 18 months and from time to time we've had to ask for additional visits at short notice and they have always accommodated us. We've got them booked to look after our cat soon too. Would definitely recommend them; trust worthy, reliable, personal service... and they are lovely people too. I can always tell when they've been, Lucy looks happy ! If you need someone to look after your pets don't hesitate to call them, Chris and Taff are amazing We will be customers for a long time All the best Scott & Helen. Lucy and Spaniel and Mady the cat Would be lost without them Chris and Taff are brilliant!!


They looked after our two dogs for a week and I came home to a spotless house. One of our dogs is nervous of new people due to a traumatic past, but he warmed to both of them immediately. Both Chris and Taff calmed my nerves and worked with our dogs needs. It was comforting to know the dogs were well cared for while away and I wouldn't hesitate to use their service again. Thank you both!


Chris and Taff looked after our two Goldies whilst we were away and we have reserved them again for another trip . Absolutely Brilliant!. The dogs loved them and our house was spotless when we returned. I cannot recommend them too highly. The attention to detail is amazing and I was never worried or concerned for my dogs whilst I was away. They are both lovely people and I am sure my two Goldies would agree. Fabulous!!!


We had Chris and Taff to look after our westie Ella and cat Phoebe for 17 days whilst we were on holiday and cannot recommend them highly enough for the care and attention our pets received. We received regular updates and photos of them both of which eased our minds. The service they provide is so much better than having to put our pets into kennels/catteries, we only wish we had tried them sooner.


Chris and Taff looked after our two dogs during our wedding including staying overnight at our house. They were absolutely fantastic - and the dogs loved them both. We have never used dog sitters/house sitters before as we are super protective of our two dogs but wouldn't hesitate to use Chris and Taff again. 100 per cent trust 100 per cent service.

Chris looked after our two cats for 4 days over new year -she is very professional, organised and flexible. Both our cats were happy and well fed when we came home, so much better than taking them to a cattery! I'd definitely recommend to anyone and we'll be using her next time we go away.


Thanks Chris for looking after my cat while I was away. I was worried as it was the first time I left my cat alone for 10days, but when I got back I was very pleased to find that he was very well looked after and in a very happy and playful mood!! I'll definitely call you again!:) thank you!! Excellent service! Enabled me to go on holiday with complete piece of mind Would trust them again 100 per cent with all our animals A most professional and caring service.


Have just returned from a few days away and am very pleased to report that our cat has been very well looked after. Was a little apprehensive as this was our first use of this service and obviously a change to our cats routine however it has gone very well and will definitely use the service again. Would recommend this service.


Thanks for looking after Ben last Friday Thank you.

David Bishop.


Thank you Chris for doing such an excellent job pet sitting for our 3 cats over the Christmas period. It was good to have the peace of mind knowing they were being so well looked after.


Your website is very infomative and easy to understand !


Chris from Animates has done an excellent job of pet sitting our 19 year old diabetic cat Jet for the last two weeks. She called twice a day (morning and evening) to check Jet was OK and injected him with ?Caninsulin?. We would recommend her services to anyone needing a cat sitter, thanks Chris.


Just used animates to look after our two cats for the last two weekends. Its a great service with a really friendly proprietor. I will definitely use again. A very comprehensive website with all the information to enable me to make a informed decision about the care of a much loved pet. Intend to use the service in June this year.


Christine came in to look after Clyde our cat whilst we were away. Having never been away and left her before we were a little apprehensive. Chris came in twice a day to feed and play with her and even texted us to say she had seen her, which was a huge weight off our minds allowing us to enjoy our holiday. When we came back, Clyde was still her happy, cheerful self and looked great. This was all down to Chris and the incredible service which she provides. I will be recommending her to anyone who cares about their pet and requires a first class pet-sitting service. Thanks Chris. Steve, Laura & Clyde


We asked Chris to look after our puppy, Jess, by walking her three times a week while we were at work. She was great, really friendly and reliable and very popular with the dog! Jess is now 11 months old and Emma is at home more so we didn't need help any longer, but we were sorry to end our relationship with Chris. Thoroughly dependendable and professional, I can unreservedly recommend her services to anyone worried about leaving their dog alone for a while each day. Thanks Chris. Jon & Emma.


Just thought I'd have a browse at your web site you sound puurrrfect for my tomos such a shame you don't cover south wales I hate the thought of leaving my cat in a cattery he'd be so much happier at home awww well I wish you well.


Thank you so much! Our cats George and Saffy were very well looked after during our trip away and everything was kept tidy too! Would definitely use again and would highly recommend.


Very nice site and very wonderful afghans.Iwish you the best for the future and success in showing.Best regards from Poland Ewelina nad KARMAZYNOWY BLEKIT kennel (poodle & afghans ) PL


Thanks Chris for looking after my two cats and giving me the peace of mind to go away knowing that someone was keeping an eye on them. I have no hesitation in using your services again.     


Chris was fantastic at looking after our cat while we were away. It gave us peace of mind and we returned home to a happy, well fed cat and a spotless house. I am extremely happy to recommend Chris and her pet sitting services.    


Using Chris's service means that our cats have been able to stay happily at home rather than going through the stress of being at a cattery. I thoroughly recommend her service, and will be using her again in the near future.


Chris has been great with my very lively labrador Ziggy, and is reliable and flexible! I'd have no hesitation in recommending her services to anyone.    


Chris has looked after my two cats on several occasions and neither have complained about the service! I know I'm leaving them in good hands and can enjoy my holiday without worrying.


Chris has been walking Splodge for nearly two years and welcomed Charlie when he joined the family six months ago. We have always found Chris friendly, reliable, professional, flexible and very keen to help out where ever she can even at short notice which with our jobs is often the case.

We would thoroughly recommend Chris to anyone.    


Working the hours that I do, its great to know that my dog is being well looked after and exercised, the days that I cant. I tried several different dog walking companies before finding Chris, and they were not as flexible and professional.


Chris has been looking after my dog for 4 years and have found her to be reliable, flexible and very professional




A completely reliable, no fuss, flexible service. I would recommend Chris without hesitation.
