|Michelle has looked after our cockapoo puppy several times a week since she was 9 weeks old. She has proven to be reliable, caring and our dog loves her! She has been an invaluable source of support and knowledge and has really helped us with training. We can't recommend her highly enough, we don't know what we would have done without her!|
|Michelle has looked after Archie for 2 days a week since he was 12 weeks old (he's now 10 months) and he loves her. It's not surprising - she walks him, plays with him, helps train him and he has the company of other dogs. As a result he is a happy, well socialised dog - and I can go to work knowing he is safe and happy. Michelle is well qualified and understands dogs and their behaviour - I can't believe my luck in finding her! And the icing on the cake? Archie comes home absolutely knackered - so I get a quiet evening full of cuddles! Thanks Michelle - you're a star - well 5 really.|
|This was the first time we have used Puppy steps to look after our cat while we where away and we found the service provided by Michelle was excellent. She was professional, reliable and very friendly and we would not hesitate in using this service again.|
|I have used Puppy Steps twice now to care for my cat while on holiday. I was a little concerned at leaving him for the first time as he is deaf and wasn't quite sure how he would take to someone else looking after him. However on meeting Michelle and knowing how much she cares for animals I was put at ease and had no concerns at all on leaving him. In the main it is nice to go away on holiday knowing that my cat is being looked after by someone who I find very capable, reliable and trustworthy. I can therefore highly recommend this service.|

|Very professional service -Michelle made an initial visit to assess the dog's temperament and needs. Michelle took on our 9 mth. old Irish wolfhound (8 stone and very boisterous!)without batting an eyelid) and provided an extremely good and reliable service. Our dog loves her and we are more than happy to use her service again and recommend it to others|
|Michelle watches our Field Cocker Pup two full days a week and has also kept her overnight.|
The pup is picked up and dropped off with Michelle having a key to our house,
We have had some great tips and the pup loves being with Vini Michel's Dog.
We recommend 100% It is great to have no worries and the freedom that Michelle gives
|I have used puppy steps for over 2 years now and have never had a reason to complain. Michelle is always willing to help in a crisis and I trust her with my 2 dogs. i know they are well looked after when in her care. The prices are reasonable too.|
|I can't recommend Michelle and the service she provides highly enough. Knowing that she is coming in everyday to walk Oz my staffie I can go to work reassured that he is being excercised, and looked after, she has also boarded Oz for me and sent me updates on how he is. She is friendly, caring and has a genuine love of dogs. Thanks Michelle you're a star.|
|My dog has her lunchtime walks from Puppy Steps when my husband and I are at work. I looked into dog walking services when we were thinking about getting a puppy and I am so pleased I found and got in touch with Michelle at Puppy Steps. She came to talk to us and I felt very reassured and happy about leaving our puppy in her hands. I'm pleased our puppy gets the walks but also the socialisation of spending time with other dogs. I have found Michelle to be totally reliable and I also feel she cares about our puppy, which for me is so important and means a lot.|
|I think that that the service provided was great, my dogs looked forward to there walks with Michelle. I would recommend the service to anyone looking for a friendly dog lover to walk there dog.|
