West Barks Pet Services   

6* Care When You're Not There 

Customer Testimonials

Simon and Liza have been caring for our Doberman Thornton from 14 weeks old, they have him twice a day Monday to Friday and we would be lost without them, Thornton loves spending time with them and the other dogs that they walk... They have helped with his training and he is growing into such a lovely dog, it is particularly great to find two people experienced and confident working with large breeds! I love the visit reports and being able to see the lovely photos of the dogs enjoying their walks, I couldn't recommend enough, a very reliable friendly, professional service!

Wow, what can I say. I now have peace of mind whilst working. My Doggies love Liza and Simons visits. This service is second too none. Report cards daily, which I look forward too reading. My Staffy was recently poorly while I was at work, Simon contacted me straight away, offered to attend the vets with her or even call back in later that day to check on her! What a lovely couple. My job also means some days I'm at home and West Barks Pet Services are very understanding and flexible to our needs.

I rescued a lurcher from Dogs Trust back in February. I did worry that I would not be able to leave him to go to work as he is still very young. I met Liza and Simon quite by chance on a dog walk and we got chatting. The rest is history and I am delighted to say that my dogs(I have 5) are brilliantly looked after and competently exercised in my absence. I would thoroughly recommend this service and will certainly continue to use them myself.

So happy we have found West Barks, they provide updates on a regular basis, always show care and attention over your pets. Gets to know the dogs personalities and will speak to you as owners for ideas they would like to introduce to the dogs. I am happy and my dogs are happy and would have no hesitation in recommending them.

Liza has cared for our 2 dogs on 3 occasions now and our dogs adore her. Indi, our mastiff Staffie cross has terrible separation anxiety ,however this has not been a problem with Liza. We are confident leaving our dogs knowing that they are having a great time and are well cared for . We will definitely be using West Barks Pet Services many times in the future. Ian and Jane Dallison. Customer

We have just been away for a few days and we asked West Barks Pet Services to house sit for us and look after our two dogs, Cheech and Happy. We can say 'hand-on-heart' that the service is wonderful - they are kind, competent, thoughtful and genuine, and the best bit is that both our dogs were relaxed and calm on our return. Cheech is an elderly dog on a variety of different medicines and the standard of care was second-to-none. We are really pleased with the service we received and I think we can talk for the dogs too; we even had an evening update on the activity throughout the day. Very many thanks, we will be asking you to house and dog sit again.

Liza stayed at our house and looked after my cocker Arthur pendragon for 2 weeks. We were very anxious as have never left him before other than nanny and he is our baby, however the service that Liza provided was amazing and Arthur loved every minute of her being there. He even cried when she left. Liza kept us updated everyday via emails and uploaded pics and videos on twitter and Instagram. Would highly recommend her and we will be using her again.

Liza and Simon have been walking Baxter 2-3 times a week for the last couple of months and have been absolutely fantastic with him. Baxter adores them both, and still gets excited when he sees them. This is my first time using a pet service so I was a bit anxious about who would be taking my dog out. Meeting them for the first time put me at ease straight away. A lovely couple who generally care about the well being of any pet. I know Baxter is well looked after and having fun on his walks and I always come home to a very happy dog!! It's also great reading his report cards to see what he's been up too. I would highly recommend them to anyone thinking of getting extra help with their dog.

After being dropped by multiple dog walkers who felt our pup didn't meet the right criteria, we genuinely believed all hope was lost until we met Simon & Liza. Our crazy dog doesn't walk well on a lead, likes to chase anything that flies and can be an absolute handful but Simon & Liza have persisted and not let us down, ever.


We can't thank them enough for putting up with the times he has not come back on a walk or where we've needed to make last minute changes to the weekly routine. Not only have West Bark Pets reduced the stress we felt trying to get a committed walker, they've given our dog the attention and time he needs while we are at work. Fitzy absolutely loves Liza and is a very happy chap :)

I couldn't recommend West Barks Pets enough, Simon & Liza are committed, reliable and when they say they don't give up on a dog, they are telling the truth! 

Racheal & Fitzy!

Liza and Simon come every day to walk our two dogs in the afternoon, where they’re taken out with a few other dogs and go to various places around the area. Every day we have a report telling us where they’ve been, how they behaved and who they went on their walk with, which we feel is a great touch to the service. They’re both very caring to our dogs and we’re at ease that they are looked after well. Already recommended them to a number of family and friends.

Simon and Liza have been caring for our cockapoo puppy Fergus since he was a few weeks old. They have been very flexible both about the days they visit and Fergus' changing needs as he has grown. I know Fergus walks with different dogs have really helped his socialisation and we love to see the brilliant pictures! Thank you.

Simon and Liza are an amazing couple to look after your pets.
Simon walks our dogs regularly , they greet him excitedly and he is very good with their individual personalities! He regularly reports back about how they have been on the walk . Plain to see that he loves animals. Also house sitter for the dogs - great!

Simon and Liza have been walking my 3 year old Beagle Bella 3-4 times a week for the last 5 months and I've not seen her so happy to go off with someone else! She goes crazy when she see's their car pulling up and her tail wags like crazy. I get left reports on what she's been up to during the day and I'm confident she is in good hands. Would definitely carry on recommending Simon and Liza.
