Great Service, we had a good dog walker prior but not very reliable. Scamps and Champs with their online booking systems and certified professionals is a whole new level of assurance. We love it!
I love Scamps & Champs! They are the best. They provide the best for dogs with lots of attention and love. I would certainly love to walk a dog with my mum because i’m only 12. I’m a dog lover, I love them so much!
I had required the services of Scamps and Champs to take care of my kittens while I was away. This included feeding, litter tray cleaning but also administration of medication. I was a bit worried, but I should not have been: everything was done to my satisfaction, the daily reports were great and getting photos of my cats was so reassuring while I was away. I would highly recommend their services, I was fully satisfied.
Doggy chaperone for our wedding and did a fabulous job. Brought our boy to our big day and also tended to our other species of pets, making sure they were all fed and happy! Natural with animals and this means a lot because we have high standards for our pets welfare, would definitely recommend.
First time we have left our puppy and had him walked by a company, I cannot thank them enough! He had a ball, he was super excited when the lady came to pick him up and always came back happy and wanting to go again. Thank you.
Totally impressed with the professional and friendly service we received for our old dog. We had 3 pet visits by Scamps and Champs and they left us notes about how he had been on each visit. I honestly felt like they cared for his welfare as much as we do and I would highly recommend them to anyone who wants peace of mind when having to leave their pets in the care of someone else.
Big thanks for the excellent service provided looking after the pets while we were away. All the cats were chilled on our return and I think appreciated having the full run of the house. Mr Bunn our elderly house rabbit needed cream twice a day which was done for us an helped heal his eye while we were away. The fish looked fine and the tank clear. It gives us peace of mind leaving them with Scamps and we shall be booking them again very soon.
My two excitable terriers have now stayed with Scamps and Champs on three occasions. Extremely well cared for they are always happy both when I leave them for their stay and when I collect them. I am kept well informed, so I'm always reassured that they are well and happy while I'm away. I could not ask for more.
I used the service for the first-time last week. This was to house sit my 3 cats for a week during our holiday. I have to say what an excellent service they provide. Right at the start from my initial query to collecting the keys and looking after the cats, including daily reports and pictures! I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending the service.
This service is great. I contacted Scamps and Champs at very short notice, a couple of days before I needed my pet looking after. They put me in touch a wonderful lady who was so professional and caring. She updated me when I asked sending reassuring photos and texts. Will definitely be using this service and recommending it.
Scamps & Champs pet sat for our beloved French Bulldog while we were on holiday. This is the first time we have ever left him. He absolutely loves her. He was looked after in our home. We have already booked again next year’s holiday as we know he will love it and we can go away knowing our boy is loved and looked after. Really happy we chose Scamps and Champs.
I have been using Scamps and Champs cat sitting service for the past 2 years. I have two very elderly cats and it is always a worry when holiday time comes. However, the care they received from Scamps and Champs was excellent and I have returned home to find both cats happy and well. It was lovely to receive photos of the cats and updates by email while I was away and this put my mind at rest. This is a wonderful service and so much better for the cats than a cattery.
I have been using Scamps and Champs Derby since November and have been extremely pleased with the service provided. Having previously been let down frequently by another dog caring company, it is so reassuring to have the piece of mind that my pets are in safe hands. Reliable, punctual, efficient and brilliant with both my dog and cat. Providing detailed feedback after every visit and communicating any concerns promptly via text. I cannot recommend Scamps and Champs highly enough and urge you to think carefully before using any other local companies.
Brilliant service. I’m so happy Carol was there during a difficult time and she took the stress away when it came to looking after my nervous puppy. I’ll use her service again and would recommend to anyone.
Thank you Carol for looking after our very cheeky kittens, while we were on holiday! Really excellent service. Would definitely recommend.
Sophie has been staying in our home looking after our lurcher Seb we received regular emails with updates and pictures and he was definitely happy and settled with Sophie especially the pictures where he is having cuddles on the sofa. Also Mel came in to spend time with him during the day. We love how we came home to a detailed log of what has happened that day. We will be definitely using their services again and would highly recommend them. Alot better solution than kennels especially since our boy spent 18 months in kennels before we rescued him.
Melanie and Malise came to set up the first visits with our cats. They were both very friendly and professional. We felt at ease leaving our cats in their hands and I would would highly recommend their service! Malise even left details of the visits for us to look over, great touch! Thank you Malise and Melanie, we will definitely be using Scamps and Champs again!
Melanie provides a fantastic and much needed service. Every detail is catered for and our dogs were very happy. There were extra re-assuring touches such as Melanie personally texting us whilst away to confirm our dogs were happy and we also came home to a daily diary too!! Amazing care and we feel we can confidently go away for the weekend knowing our dogs will be loved and looked after in their own environment and the property kept safe too. Thanks Melanie!
Emma and Melanie made sure we were set up perfectly for our wedding which wouldn't have been complete without our Staffy, Chubbs. The whole service was excellent and conciencious. The update of Chubbs' eating and sleeping complete with photo was so great for putting our minds at ease. Whilst I hope I don't need another wedding service we will very much be in touch for future services! P.S. thanks for the wedding card
We heard about Scamps and Champs through the local vets, they were able to accommodate our needs at last minute and we were very happy with the service provided. I will definitely use their services in the future and thank you to Sophie for looking after our boys.
Fantastic service, Melanie was so professional and we have returned home to very happy animals...I couldn't recommend this service highly enough. Definitely will be using it again, thank you!
Carol is a true pet lover, she has a real affinity with all animals and I would not hesitate to recommend her services.
Whenever I contact Scamps and Champs (Carol) I have always received very good service. They have gone out of their way to find a boarder for me at the last minute and each border I have used has had a warm and friendly home for me to leave my dog… She has always settled with them and I have had contact with them for reassurance. I would definitely recommend using Scamps & Champs if you are looking to board your dog. Thanks Carol.
Carol took great care of our rabbits and chickens whilst we were away on holiday, and also watered the plants too. I would not hesitate to use her again in the future.
Carol took very good care of our cats while we were away for a few days. I would definitely recommend her.
Going on holiday and worried about our two elderly cats, we enlisted the help of Carol from Scamps & Champs, Beverley. Carol called twice a day to feed and check on them, seeing to litter trays and their general well-being. We returned to happy contented cats who didn’t sulk on our return. They had obviously been well looked after. We will definitely be using Scamps & Champs again so that we can go away worry free.
Scamps & Champs walked my two dogs for months and were always very helpful at changing times or days at short notice. The walkers were very friendly and treated my dogs as their own, I would highly recommend Scamps & Champs to anyone needing a dog walker or sitter.
I have been using Scamps and Champs dog walking service for almost a year now. Carol is very professional and friendly, and if my usual dog walker is not available she always ensures that a replacement is available. My dog loves his dog walker and I wouldn’t be without the service. I would recommend Scamps & Champs to anyone needing a similar service.
I have used the home pet visiting service several times now, and have always found them to be totally reliable and professional. Both the pets and house have been very well cared for, and they always leave notes about how things have gone. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this service.
I can’t thank Scamps & Champs enough for looking after my dog during the holidays. He is normally depressed when we have been away, but with Scamps & Champs walking him every day and making sure he was looked after, we came back to a happy dog – thanks again!! I will be booking Scamps & Champs for extra dog walking services whilst I am at work!!
I would like to thank Carol and the team for providing a five star service! They are honest and reliable and have helped us keep Rigsby happy and provided walks even when given very late notice. Rigsby's excitement when he is around Jason is testament to the brilliant work they do! The satisfaction that he is being so well looked after is priceless.
Jeanette and her team are very reliable - on a few occasions I have asked if my dog Slinky can be walked on additional days last minute and Jeanette has always been very accommodating. Slinky is very happy on his walks, I get regular updates with pics and it's great to find someone who I can trust with him. I would highly recommend her services!
I recently asked Jeanette if she could arrange for a pet sitter for my Senegal parrot at short notice. Within a day this was arranged and my parrot had a wonderful holiday with a lovely family. I would have no hesitation contacting Jeanette again and highly recommend Scamps and Champs.
We've had Jeanette to walk our Mini Schnauzer since we moved into the area in March. We have used dog walkers before and have had two that didn't bother turning up on occasions but still charged me. Jeanette has restored my faith in dog walkers. She's reliable, flexible and most of all a very caring lady. Fergus loves her and gets excited to see her. Even if Jeanette can't walk him she organised alternative cover in her absence. Thank you Jeanette for all you do for Fergus and us. I can go to work without worrying about if he's been walked or not, which is a huge relief.
Scamps and Champs recently looked after our cat at short notice and was a god send. We received email updates and pictures, putting our minds at ease whilst we were abroad. Having never used a pet sitting company before I didn't know what to expect, but I can honestly say we received a professional, top class service which is very reasonably priced. Thank you so much.
We have 2 elderly cats on medication so going away even for a night had been traumatic for us until we discovered Scamps and Champs. Lorraine has looked after our cats when we were away recently, when we got home they were relaxed and happy and so were we. We don't feel trapped anymore as we know our babies are in good hands. Thank you so much.
Jeanette is very reliable and our dog is really happy when we get home on days he has been out for a walk with her.
Helen recently looked after our cats whilst we were away on holiday. She was absolutely brilliant and regularly sent me photos of my fur babies. Will definitely use this service again.
I am absolutely delighted with the care that Jeanette gave Frank and Norma during my month away. Getting updates from her really eased my mind when away from home! Such a great service and I am so glad that I found her
Jeanette visits Lulu 3 days a week. Lulu loves her looking after her. I can tell from the lovely notes we are left. Never ever let us down.
Hi Alison, Thanks for everything! I can't describe with words the feeling of peace knowing you were there looking after our cats. When we arrived yesterday the house was clean and the cats happy. I loved the detailed comments and all the pics. I'd like to book with you again for our next holiday if you are available.
Hi Alison, we arrived home this morning to a happy Petat! Thank you so much for taking such excellent care of him while we were away. We can't tell you how much it means to be far away and have peace of mind that he is cared for so well! We are convinced you have a magic touch! Till next time! All the best and once again thank you so, so much!
Thank you so much for looking after the boys! It is obvious that you really love animals. We loved the pet log and the pictures. They have had a lovely week with you.
I've been so impressed with the service and you're doing a great job. You really have put my mind at rest knowing Freddy is taken out and well looked after. The feedback email I get after your visit is great.
Hi Alison, Just to say I really enjoy the email report especially the photos - and reference to his regular visits to the Wizard! Hope he's behaving himself.
Thank you for the pictures and for looking after our little puppy so well.
Hi Alison, I just wanted to say a massive thank you for looking after Salford. We were so touched at the level of detail you left on the pet log, as well as the beautiful photograph. Sending us texts and pictures was fantastic and we really REALLY appreciate it! We understand he's a big job to undertake and we are so grateful for what you've done and the way in which you've done it. We'll be so pleased to give you a glowing review and would really like to use your services again in the future. Thanks again, you're fabulous!
We're so pleased - and relieved - to have found such a fantastic new pet sitter in Alison at Scamps and Champs Macclesfield and will definitely be using her again. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone in the area looking for the services she provides.
Recently enjoyed an excellent service from Scamps and Champs Macclesfield. Efficient, friendly, caring. Was matched up to a wonderful local dog sitter in no time. Very happy to recommend them!
Good evening Alison. I picked Tilly up today and it is obvious she has had a really good time at Malcolm's and that he has really taken excellent care of her. Thanks for organising Tilly's weekend and I shall be in touch in a couple of months when I plan my next trip.
Scamps and Champs Macclesfield looked after my three guinea pigs for a week and I can tell they were wonderfully cared for. I would definitely recommend them and hopefully use them again next holidays! Thanks Scamps and Champs!
Scamps and Champs offer an excellent service, they are extremely reliable and flexible and my dog could not be happier when his walker comes to collect him.
After moving to a new area I had to find a new cat sitter for my cat Izzy. Scamps and Champs seemed reasonable prices and had good reviews. The initial meeting was great, Lesley came and met Izzy and asked me about any special care for her. I booked her over the Christmas break at very reasonable rates. When I returned from my break Lesley had written down a day-by-day account of the care she had given and if there were any problems. All in all a very good service. Thank you.
Thank you for coming and seeing to our Kittens whilst we were away, put our mind as ease that someone was able to check on house as well. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a pet sitting service.
Will definitely be using them to walk Milly again. Not only has she had plenty of exercise but they bathed her too! Lovely people 🙂 xx thanks again xx
Poppy had as good a time as we did on holiday and loved Kay & Chris' little dog Finn, didn't even feel guilty leaving her as she was in such good hands.
Been using these for a year to walk my two babies and use them every day. Great company that you can trust with your babies and in your home.
Scamps and Champs is great, can't thank Kayleigh and Christian enough for giving us piece of mind while on holiday, our two had a holiday too, lots of lovely walks and cuddles.
Christian & Kayleigh are highly trustworthy and do a great job of looking after my cat Ziggy whenever I'm away. I know he appreciates having a bit of company a couple of times a day! It's great to know they're also around to keep an eye on the house. I would recommend their services.
Thank you for taking such wonderful care of our lovely Honey. We love the photos of her cuddling your little ones. We feel so at ease when on holiday knowing that Honey is getting plenty of love and lots of cuddles. x
Brilliant people, can't rate highly enough. Always go out of their way to help and absolutely brilliant with dogs.
