Recommended dog walker Newcastle


I am mainly housebound so Darrin has looked after my dogs for many years including my Springer Spaniels Sam and Sophie, my terrier Kizzie and particularly my other rescue dog Max. Max loved Darrin so much he was constantly at the window awaiting his arrival and Darrin loved him too, taking him on family camping and walking trips. Darrin loved my dogs as much as I did and I cannot recommend him and Happy Paws highly enough as a dog walker and to look after your pets.

Dear Darrin, Thank you so much for taking great care of my cats.  They were happy and content when I got home after 2 1/2 weeks holiday!! The regular updates and photos were brilliant and very reassuring. I would definitely recommend your service to anyone needing pet care.

Thank you so much Darrin for looking after my little monkeys! Made my trip away stress free. The cats seemed happy and relaxed when I got home- so much better for me than stressing them by taking to a battery. Excellent service. Would recommend to anyone!

Thank you Darrin for feeding Kitty over the weekend. She seemed happy and relaxed on our return, and I really appreciated your regular texts to keep me updated. Will definitely be back in touch in the near future.

Teddy loves the walks she has with Darrin and friends. She comes back much calmer and sleepier after her walks. Would def recommend Darrin as he is excellent with the animals. Thank you Darrin Happy Paws is fabulous.

After having Happy Paws take care of my 2 house cats for a week, I have just returned to 2 happy, content and well cared for felines. Darrin texted me after each visit to keep me up to date with how they were and I enjoyed a relaxing holiday knowing that they were in such safe and capable hands. I cannot recommend Happy Paws enough!

First time using a cat sitting service and I was very happy. My two cats are quite nervous of new people but they both took to Darrin. Loved the updates and felt a lot more comfortable leaving them. Would definitely use again.

Dog Walker Review Newcastle


Millie had a brilliant time with Darrin. She made lots of doggy friends Millie was very happy, clean and content when I arrived home. She obviously had a stimulating and exhausting walk .

I would recommend Darrin as a professional dog walker, he cares and keeps owners well informed about their dog.

Many thanks , Darrin, you’re a star.

We were initially worried to leave our cat at home given that he’s 15 and has both kidney disease and regular bouts of pancreatitis. Darrin was brilliant though and made us feel really confident that our cat would be well looked after in his care. When we arrived home it was clear that Whiskers had been absolutely fine all week and his food/litter needs had all been catered for perfectly. The regular emails and photos are also really great and gave us a worry free holiday! We will definitely use Happy Paws again!

If like us you are worried about leaving your pet while on holiday. All I can say is use Happy paws. Our 5 month old kitten an our Daughters 6 year old cat could not have been better looked after. We got regular updates including photos.

When we arrived home litter trays topped up and food given ready for us when we arrived. Both cats really settled and looking really well.

A big thank you Darrin. We will definitely be using Happy Paws from now on.

Excellent service. I recommend their cat sitting service, as they have taken great care and attention to look after my cat Jet, and they did this fast as my prior cat sitter let me down and I needed one urgently.

I would not go to anyone else or a cattery now that I can turn to Happy Paws.

Can’t recommend Happy Paws enough, our super active pup loves his walks and I never worry about him while he is out with Darrin, as I know he is in great hands. The photos and text updates are a lovely touch and cheer me up on long days at work! Fab service

Second time using Happy Paws as we feel really comfortable when we go away that Darrin will walk our dog, it’s complete peace of mind to know she is well looked after. The email updates and photos are really great and the clips are excellent too. I would wholeheartedly recommend Happy Paws; a really professional service but lovely touches too. You’re doing a great job Darrin, thanks very much!

We’ve used Happy Paws twice recently to look after our cat and have been very pleased with the service. We feel 100% comfortable leaving Julie and Darrin to look after the Megster. The txts and emails with photos give peace of mind, letting you enjoy your break all that more. I would recommend Happy Paws to anyone.

Stuart Woodward, Woolsington, Newcastle

Cat Sitter Jesmond


Julie looked after our cats and our guinea pig when we were away. She sent us daily updates and wonderful photos. This service is ideal for the cats as they do not have to leave their home and cheaper than placing them in a cattery. It is also good to know that someone is looking after your house when you are away in case your cats throw a party and burn it down. Thank you, Julie

Cat Sitter Newcastle


First time using a pet sitting service so I had a little trepidation but Happy Paws was recommended by a friend and Julie did such a great job we were absolutely delighted. We have 3 cats, all with very different personalities and foibles, and one of them needs to take tablets twice a day.

From the initial visit Julie made sure she had all the information she needed which gave us great confidence. The regular updates and photos meant we could really enjoy our holiday without wondering how things were going. We got home to 3 very well looked after kitties, and a clean litter tray – result!

We will very definitely use Happy Paws again. Thanks for a fantastic service Julie.

Julie looked after our cat Charlie while we went away for a few days, he is so nervous and doesnt like other cats, he would of hated a cattery, so this was perfect. She was great, sending updates every day with photos and gave him lots of attention. We will definitely be using Happy Paws again!

Was really nervous about leaving my 2 Cats with a sitter for the first time but I needn’t have worried as Julie was fantastic! From the first meeting it was very thorough and professional. I loved receiving daily updates/photos as it really put my mind at ease and I could see from the photos that my Cats were obviously happy. Arrived home to 2 very relaxed and well cared for Cats.

Thank you Julie and Darrin for looking after Yoshi and the chickens. It is a massive relief to know that our animals had such a great care! Daily updates really helped with my separation anxiety:) We will be in touch with you again when we plan our next holiday!

This year was the first time we’ve had to look for someone to look after our elderly cat other than family. I contacted them and an initial meeting was arranged. I was anxious but that soon faded once we met Julie. She went through all details and explained what would happen.
While we were away we received regular updates and pictures. It was very reassuring that Charcoal was fine while we were away.
Would certainly recommend Happy Paws and certainly use them again. Thank you Julie and Darrin x

Was brilliant to have Julie looking after our two cats while we were away at New Year. This was the first time they had been left with a sitter but I felt happy and reassured after my first meeting with Julie! One of our cats needs tablets so it was great to have this done during visits. Loved getting my photos and updates as I over worry about my little fur babies! Brilliant service which I would definitely recommend and use again!! Thank you

I’ve been using Happy Paws for about two years and there is no one I would trust more with my pets than Darrin and Julie. My cats absolutely love them and I feel completely happy knowing they’re being well looked after and played with while I am away.

I love the photo updates from Julie and Darrin, they always put a smile on my face.

Thank you so much for being such amazing cat sitters.
