"Liz has a great relationship with my 18 month old cocker spaniel and walks him 2/3 times every week. Reggie waits for Liz’s arrival, is always totally thrilled to see her and absolutely loves his walks with her. Liz has greatly improved Reggie’s behaviour so not only has he benefitted but so have I as I find him much better behaved when I am walking him! Liz is totally reliable and always gives feedback after his walks - I recommend Liz highly - she has made my life much easier and Reggie’s much more fun!"
Karen & Graham, Knightsbridge
"What I appreciate most about Liz and her team is not just her obvious love for my pet (my English Bulldog, Daisy, fell for her immediately) but her professional approach. Pet sitting is Liz's passion and she is extremely good at it: so good, in fact, Daisy doesn’t even give me a guilt trip when I get home! I would gladly recommend the Furry Dogmother to my friends and anyone looking for top quality pet care!"
Leigh, South Kensington
"We are extremely pleased with the cat sitting services 'The Furry Dogmother' provides. The updates and photos we receive from Liz whilst we are away are extremely helpful in terms of keeping us up to date with how Hans and Leo are getting on. We are always delighted with the care given to our cats as well as how everything was taken care of in our home."
Olivia & Xav, Fulham
“Having had a previous bad experience boarding our dog with kennels we were apprehensive at the prospect of leaving our beloved miniature dachshund again. However we needn’t have been as Liz was completely wonderful from start to finish. Honest and friendly, I had no reservations about leaving Sausage with her after our meeting and, most importantly, Sausage loved Liz and had a great time while we were away. It was so lovely to come home to a happy pup! He was so much happier than when he’s been taken somewhere else and had his routine disturbed. Liz sent regular updates and pictures and left the flat more spotless than we had left it for her! Will absolutely use again in the future, and thoroughly recommend her services, a joy to work with.”
Jasmine & Ted, Chelsea
"We were very happy with the service we received from Liz. We found Liz to be extremely professional and knowledgeable. Above all, she clearly loves all furry friends and treated our 3 cats with loving kindness. Whilst we were away we were delighted to receive daily photos and updates which really put our minds at rest. We would have no hesitation in recommending The Furry Dogmother!”
Nuala & Richard, Chelsea
"Liz and Sharon are a true animal lovers and take the best care of my boxer Ridge. From our first meeting through routine interactions it is always a pleasure to interact with Liz and Sharon. They are completely reliable and trustworthy. Ridge loves his walks with Sharon and she always lets me know how their daily walk went. They are flexible and demonstrate true care and concern for Ridge. Leaving your dog in someone else's care is a leap of faith and you can be confident that Liz is worthy of your confidence. I recommend them without hesitation to anyone who needs their dog walked or watched".
"The Furry Dogmother really does make your pet-related wishes come true! Having been unable to walk my dog for a week due to unforeseen circumstances Liz came to the rescue at the last minute. She was able to meet with myself and our cockapoo Poppy to make sure we were all happy prior to the first walk. It is evident that Liz is a great lover of animals, being knowledgeable and sensitive to their needs and individuality. Both Liz and her colleague Jo were enthusiastic, amiable and understanding. Poppy had a wonderful time on her walks and returned a happy and relaxed pooch. I would not hesitate to use The Furry Dogmother's services again in the future, and in fact intend to do so very soon!"
"If you are looking for the best possible care for your pet, you should not hesitate to use The Furry Dogmother! Liz is extremely professional and also loves animals. Liz walked my Leonberger dog and he loved her. I knew that he was in the best possible hands with her. I would recommend her to anyone"
Isabelle & Simon, Battersea
"Liz and Michelle are doing an amazing job walking our beloved Cavapoo, Daisy. They are reliable, meticulous, flexible and make the daily walks so much fun for our puppy. Daisy can't wait for them to arrive! Overall, they provide an outstanding one to one service that I can highly recommend!"
"From start to finish The Furry Dogmother has been nothing but professional, reliable and trustworthy. After sending an enquiry for a very last minute request to look after Harley, my 11 week old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Liz got back to me straight away and worked very hard to find a puppy sitter. I was sent various updates of Harley whilst I was away and felt completely comfortable that Harley had been left in safe hands. His house training has even improved whilst I was away! Thank you The Furry Dogmother - I will 100% be using you again! I'm sure there will be a time soon where I will need a puppy sitter again, so I will get back in contact as soon as I do! Thank you again Liz and Michelle".
Olivia & Alex, Fulham
"Liz took great care of our yorkie Jack and yorkipoo Monty while we were away. She was a calm and reassuring presence and sent plenty of pictures and updates to us everyday to let us know how our boys were doing. She won over the boys completely and helped with some of their training as well. We came home to happy little dogs and would certainly ask Liz to housesit again. Thanks Liz!"
Fiona & Armin, Chelsea
"Liz has been wonderful at not only walking our French bulldog but also caring for her while we are away. We have complete confidence in her abilities and trust her judgment with our fur baby. Our family is so lucky to have her!"
Saxon and Tom, Knightsbridge
"We have recently relocated to London with our beloved Singaporean Street Cat, Sunny. It was a priority to find someone we could rely on to care for him when we had to travel and someone he would trust and love spending time with when we were away. Liz is all these things and more! From day one, she understood exactly how to make him feel comfortable and we can relax knowing he is in the best possible hands. Liz is the absolute best and a wonderful person – we couldn’t be happier to have found her!"
Rhiannon & Christian, Chelsea
"Our pug Bettie is our pride and joy and our furry daughter. As fellow animal lovers you will appreciate how precious our little ones are and leaving them in the hands of a stranger can be pretty daunting. We have been working with Liz and her team for a couple of years now for day, overnight & holiday sits and it is a complete relief to know that Bettie is safe and happy when she is in the care of Liz and the ladies. Bettie gets so excited when Liz comes to visit and I can tell how happy she is when I get photo updates throughout the day of their adventures together!"
Heidi & Alex, Fulham
"Liz is truly THE Furry Dogmother who went above and beyond to make sure that our Japanese Spitz puppy, Bear was well looked after. She cared for Bear as if he were her own and the service she provided was second to none! Professional, reliable and highly recommended. Thanks Liz! Bear will miss you!!"
Hannah & Harry, Fulham
"I consider my cat, Schmitty, a member of the family, so when I moved to London in 2015, it was really important for me to find a cat sitter that I could trust. The Furry Dogmother, Liz, and her associates, always took great care of him. It is clear they share a love for animals. They were always punctual and sent photo updates, so that I could see Schmitty was in good hands. Once when Schmitty was sick, Liz even helped to administer medication. I would definitely recommend The Furry Dogmother! I am moving back to America and will miss Liz! (and I know Schmitty will miss her too!)"
Erica & Dave, Chelsea
"We highly recommend Liz of The Furry Dogmother as a reliable, professional, caring and playful cat-sitter", say our two cats Dushka (the shy, nervous one) & Sylvester (the charming, sociable one). When we leave our cats they depend totally on someone to feed them, clean their litter trays properly and provide care and consideration as if they were being looked after by us. Also it is vital that they are cared for by someone who can meet their individual needs. That the shy one is gently encouraged out to eat, as well as the social one being played with and having company. With Liz looking after our boys we can relax, as we know they are cared for really well. When away we get regular updates including photos so we can see what they get up to; we even have proof of Dushka eating out of her hands!
Sue & Sasha, Kensington
"Liz has been walking my dear fluffy child throughout 2014 and this has included overnight dog sitting at my home. I could not be happier to have found Liz who cares just as much about my little girl as I do which is all any owner could want. The approach of dedicated walks is one that is not easy to find in London and I know that a daily walk with Liz is the highlight of my dog's day. Trustworthy, kind, knowledgable and in addition a very nice person-this is a special service".
"We highly recommend Liz and her team. Our cat needed some last minute love over Christmas while we were away and Liz had one of her colleagues to come once a day to look after him. She was lovely, sending pictures each time. We felt very relaxed knowing our little fluff ball was being well looked after. Thank you both for all your help. We won't hesitate to contact you again".
Alex & Tim, Pimlico
"We have been extremely impressed by the level of service we have received from Liz. It was so important for us to find a dog walker that didn't walk other dogs at the same time and also be flexible to suit our busy schedule. The team are highly professional, always punctual and most importantly we know our dogs are being well looked after and cared for. We could not be happier, thank you!"
Pat & Anthony, Battersea
"Liz has been looking after my two kitties throughout the year whilst I’ve been travelling for work and play, both short and longer trips, and always does a fantastic job. While I’m away Liz always keeps me up to date with how they are getting on (including photos!) and they are always happy when I return. I can really tell how much Liz enjoys spending time with my boys and cares about their well being – I always feel completely confident that my pets (and my home) will be safe and well looked after while I’m away. I strongly recommend Liz to any pet lover who wants to make sure their pets are well looked after while you’re out of town. Thanks Liz!"
"We relocated from the US to London last year along with our French Bulldog. We had been looking far and wide for a reliable, London-based dog walker/sitter, and concluded our search upon finding Liz and her team! We travel frequently and it’s imperative that we have someone whom we can trust staying at our home during the day and overnights, and we always have the peace of mind that he’s in good hands with Liz when we’re away".
Brenda & Phil, Fulham
"We love Liz and The Furry Dogmother team! Liz is organised, responsive, resourceful and wonderful with our dog Gracie. Liz and her team provide daily walks and dog sitting and I don't know what we would do without them. Liz handles every detail, change or last minute request with ease. If you need someone to walk or dog sit, look no further. Liz and her team are the best!"
Amy & Chris, Knightsbridge
"Having grown up with dogs we were both desperate to get one even though we both work. Having made the decision to buy Tinkerbell I was very nervous about the impact it would have to my routine and I was very aware how important it was to make sure she was happy whilst we were out. I am so grateful to have found Liz!! An experienced dog owner, Liz understood my concerns and has been a calming influence throughout the sometimes difficult puppy stage. We now have a fantastic routine that works for us and most importantly works for Tink. I am able to go to work knowing that Tink loves her dog walker and will be a happy and relaxed dog when I get home - which is just perfect! Thank you Liz and Sarah!!"
Georgette & Alex, Fulham
"We wanted someone to give our dog a walk when he is in the office in Chelsea. We were apprehensive as we had had a previous bad experience where it became apparent our dog was not walked but driven around in a van for the hour.
The minute we met Liz Horn, when she came to tell us about The Furry Dogmother, we felt totally reassured. You could immediately tell that she was passionate about giving our dog a proper walk (on his own), and adapting to his needs. He is an old dog and at times not that well. She gave us confidence, that she would be totally conscientious and reliable. And that is what she has proved to be. Phoenix is always slow to get to know people, we say he is discerning(!), but he has taken to the lovely gentleness and compassion of Liz. He always comes back from his walk smiling and happy! We thoroughly recommend The Furry Dogmother".
Angela & Susan, Chiswick
"I would have no hesitation in recommending Liz, who walks and sits for our six month old spaniel, Harry. Liz is reliable and professional whilst at the same time very caring and affectionate with Harry. She also carries out some of the training exercises our trainer has shown us, and keeps him engaged, as well as calm and very happy. Liz has been a delightful addition to our busy London household".
"The Furry Dogmother team are reliable, friendly and flexible. The result is a happy Newfoundland and a relaxed owner!"
"It is great knowing that someone is checking in on my pup during the day while I am at work, and giving her the love and exercise she needs. I love getting little updates about what they have been up to on the day's outing. Liz has been extremely professional, reliable, and flexible with our needs. I would highly recommend The Furry Dogmother to anyone in need of pet care services. Your pet will be in great hands!"
"Lola, my 8 year old Cocker Spaniel has fear aggression and consequently I needed someone who could offer one-to-one walks on lead. As Lola is my furry baby I also needed someone trustworthy and reliable but more than anything, kind and patient. Liz really has been the answer to my prayers and in a short space of time Lola has become incredibly fond of her….praise indeed from a dog who is very particular about who she does and doesn't like! When Liz arrives for walks, Lola is totally delighted and skips out the door with a big smile on her face, which is hugely reassuring. Liz takes a genuine interest in Lola's well-being and I have been receiving regular updates and photos via text, so I can see what they are both getting up to! Not only that but when my father was recently rushed into hospital and I needed someone to look after Lola at very short notice Liz was a life saver, meaning I could focus on supporting my dad, safe in the knowledge that Lola was in good hands".
I would highly recommend Liz and her team of pet sitters, who have been looking after my 3 month old Doberman puppy Sascha while I am at work. They offer an incredibly professional service, which gives me absolute peace of mind that my puppy is being well looked after while I am not at home. You can be assured that your animals’ wellbeing will always be their first priority. Your animals will be in very capable hands. Thanks a million to Liz, Sara and Fran!
"Liz, thank you so much for walking our miniature dachshund, Midnight. Not only does Midnight adore you, but so does my organisation-oriented husband! He loves your professionalism - all your credentials, the receipts you leave and your incredible organisation. For my part, I am just happy we can go to work and not worry at all about Midnight. You are reliable and great with dogs. We were so happy to have found you and we would recommend you first to anyone seeking a dog walker or dog sitter".
Yury & Serena, Chelsea
