|After having some recent problems with my dog Mandy has been there to help me........she popped out to the house to see first hand my dogs fear with strangers and helped me address this fear by giving me (and showing me) hints and tips. As Mandy is a Vet Nurse her knowledge is second to none and she has been very helpful when my dog is not well.... Mandy is always available whether its early morning or very late at night-Dont know how I managed without her! Good Luck on the new venture of Active Paws x|

|We rate Active Paws 10/10!!|
We first used Mandy to look after our cat "Wonky" when we were not at home - the service is impeccable, excellent value for money and Mandy's background as a vet nurse is invaluable, as we seek her advice regularly if anything appears untoward with Wonky' s health.
Although we both work during normal office hours, we adopted a chocolate labrador "Orla" in April 2011, and have had no hesitation in having Mandy walk Orla daily, as we know that Orla is in safe hand. Sarah has also been involved in training Orla, and the knowledge & enthusiasm that Sarah displays during her training sessions is first class
