Albie & Ginny’s owner (cat visits)
Katie has done an amazing job of looking after our cat babies whilst we have been on our honeymoon. After being a little nervous leaving them for 10 days, and knowing Albie is quite shy, I couldn’t recommend Katie enough. She kept me updated with pictures and videos and it was lovely to see them so settled with her. I actually think they are a bit gutted we are home. I will 100% be using Homeward bound in the future and recommending Katie to any pet owner. Thank you so much x
Simba & Leo’s owner (cat visits)
I couldn't recommend Katie and Homeward Bound enough! We were so nervous leaving our kittens for the first time for 2 weeks while we were on holiday but Katie was brilliant, we received photos/videos/updates every day and she went over and above to make sure our cats didn't go without anything and their usual routine wasn't affected. They absolutely loved her and we will definitely be using Homeward Bound whenever we go away. Thank you so much again Katie!!
Litas’ owner (dog walks)
Katie is a brilliant dog walker and takes her business seriously. From the moment I met her and she met my dog Litas I knew she was the right person to do daily walks and to, of course, trust my home keys. During our initial meet and greet Katie has shown all of her certificates, asked and noted all the things about the dog and was simply friendly and calm with my dog, which can sometimes be nuts. She is now taking him on daily 30 min walks and I could not be happier with the service she provides - professional, reliable and trustworthy. I cannot recommend her enough!
Hallow’s owner (dog day visits)
Katie is absolutely brilliant with Hallow, she knows how to communicate with dogs and is the most perfect dog sitter. Very professional, trustworthy, always punctual, reliable and as a member of the IMDT I can highly recommend her services...❤
Sky’s owner (overnight dog sitting)
absolutely fantastic from start to finish! It was very last minute I contacted Katie and asked if she could look after my dog for 2 nights, she arrived at 7:30am the next morning more prepared than I was! it was my first time leaving Sky but I was at ease the moment I met her, I was sent regular updates and could tell Sky was on great hands! such a lovely girl and Sky clearly loved her! got back to a very happy dog! would definitely use her again and would definitely recommend her for all your pet needs! Thanks again!xx
Teddy and Cassie’s owner (cat visits)
Katie is so thorough! She arrived with a clipboard and wrote everything down. On her visits, she sent us a full check-list of tasks done, with pics of our kitties feeding, the food as she had prepared it.... marvellous! Complete peace of mind while away from our treasures. Thanks Katie!
Max’s owner (dog walks)
im so pleased with katies dog walking service i came back from holiday to a very happy well walked max he really enjoyed spending time with katie i would definately recommend xxx ps thanks xxx
Winkie’s owner (cat visits)
Such a great service. Katie was lovely with our cat Winkie and sent us regular videos and pictures. We have never left Winkie before so we were nervous, but knowing he was with Katie mad us feel much better. Thank you Katie, I think Winkie misses you! Xx 😘
Peggy’s owner (cat visits/over nights)
Katie looked after our 12 week old kitten Peggy after we had to go away for a wedding for 4 days. It’s always a bit disconcerting giving your house key to someone you don’t know well but from the start, Katie was really professional and put my mind at ease. She looked after Peggy amazingly and kept us updated all the time with videos and photos. The house was just as we left it and we immediately booked her again. It’s great to have found a person I have 100% faith in to look after my house and Peggy. Can’t recommend enough!!
Polly’s owner (overnight dog sitting)
10/10 If you need someone to look after your dogo, look no further!
Hendrix & aquarium owner (cat And small animal visits)
5 star service. Thank you so much for updates on our cat and fishes. Will use your services again 100%
Trixie’s owner (dog walks/visits)
A brilliant service! I was very worried about the idea of trusting someone with my dog but Katie gave me plenty of reassurance and put my mind at ease! She arrived early and sent me pictures and videos of my dog which was very nice to see whilst I was at work. I will definitely be asking Katie to look after my pets again
Dora’s owner (cat visits/over night stays)
Katie could not be a better pet-sitter. We had a special request as we were leaving out tiny kitten overnight for the first time (for our honeymoon) and didn't want her to be alone. Katie was incredibly professional and as soon as we met her we knew Dora would be in safe hands. Dora warmed to her straight away which meant we could relax knowing she was well cared for. Katie sent loads of pictures of Dora happy and well which also put our minds at rest. Can't recommend Katie highly enough as a brilliant, brilliant pet carer who clearly genuinely loves animals.
Harley & Maggie’s owner (dog walks)
Wouldn’t trust anyone else to walk my fur baby, Katie is fantastic with Harley and patient with me too as I was a bit of a worrier 😂 Can’t speak highly enough of her services, Harl gets super excited when I mention Katies coming and I feel confident he’s in safe hands when she takes him out 🧡 Thank you
Ozzy & Colo’s owner (cat visits)
Just left my kittens over the weekend for the 1st time. Arranged for katie to come in twice a day to tend to their needs. Have arrived home to 2 happy kittens! Thank you katie. Glad to know i now have someone i can trust to look after them each time we go away takes a lot of the stress away x x
Dexter’s owner (dog walks)
We've been using this service for about 2 months now and are absolutely made up with Katie. Our rescue dog dexter absolutely loves her, his daily walks and playtime in the house if the weather is bad. Katie goes above and beyond and really helped us out when dexter was ill, taking him the vets as me and my partner were in work. I think she was more worried about him than us! Dexter can't wait for us to go back to work so he can see katie again �
Cocoa’s owner (dog walks)
Katie is wonderful with our little Cocoa. The pupper is overweight and awful with stamina so we have 3 30min walks each week (on top of normal walks performee by my mum) to help her gain more stamina, and I'm seeing a good difference in her already! Katie is super patient as Cocoa decides to just lay down and collapse multiple times per walk, but she's laying down less and less each time. Now whenever Katie comes to the gate Cocoa goes nuts because she knows it's time to go out♡
Patti & Mimi’s owner (cat visits)
Katie has been an absolute star whilst we've been away looking after our two kitties (fur children!). The daily updates & pictures were really welcome & helped us feel reassured that they were happy. We can't imagine leaving them with anyone else.
Thank you so much Katie, we look forward to booking you again soon x
Mylo & Lola’s owner (dog walks/visits)
Katie is amazing and I always trust her with my 2 dogs. When my last dog walker/sitter decided to close her business, I was really nervous as she had looked after Lola since she was 6 months old, and my other dog Mylo is elderly, anxious as well as going a bit deaf and blind so he needs a special handler. Due to his issues on the rare occasion I go away, I need a sitter as kennels and boarding aren’t an option.
Me and Katie used to work together so I already knew her and since last summer she has done a fantastic job. She’s also flexible with me when I need to change my appointment or have a last minute request! I would recommend her to anyone 😁
Finn’s owner (dog walks/sitting/small pet visits)
Katie has been looking after Finn our Deerhound and Ted our rabbit when we have been away from home on holiday. We cannot rate her care highly enough and would not hesitate to recommend her. It’s such a comfort to know that she offers overnight stays to ensure Finn stays in his own home and has a familiar face to be there going to sleep and waking up 😊
Benny’s owner (dog walks)
Katie helped us out with walking our dog for a few days last week. She was friendly and professional and did a great job. She gave my cavalier so much love and he looked like he was enjoying his walks through all the pictures and videos Katie sent to me during the time she was with him each day. I will 100% use Homeward Bound again and would highly recommend!
Buzz and Macey's owner (dog walks)
We started using Katie around 2 months ago for dog walking 3 times a week and it's the best decision we ever made. Macey and Buzz absolutely adore her and she is a reliable, honest and lovely person who I would recommend to anyone!
Thank you Katie for all your help and photos to keep us going throughout the day!
Rocky's owner (dog walks)
Katie has been taking Rocky cockerpoo for a couple of months now. From my first meeting with Katie she was so professional, showing me her certificates & insurance including doggy first aid! Can't recommend Katie enough.
Rex's owner (dog walks/puppy visits)
Katie is an amazing dog sitter. Katie has looked after my puppy the last few weeks and provides so many updates while is with him and I am at work! Katie not only takes him for a walk and feeds him she also has taught him some new tricks amazing service thanks Katie!!
