Short term Dog Walking:
“Firstly, a huge thank you for arranging Tugba to walk Chester. He absolutely loved his time with her and eagerly awaited her arrival.
I loved receiving photos of them everyday and felt completely happy and confident of his safety with her.
Thank you again for everything, we both miss Tugba.” Margaret West 26/10/20
Regular Weekly Dog Walks:
I really cannot recommend the Surrey Ark highly enough. They’ve been walking my dog every weekday for the past year, and they’ve been absolutely brilliant. My miniature schnauzer Milo loves his walker, and I know I don’t need to worry about him when he’s with her. She treats him like her own. 100% reliable, professional and from my very first meeting with them I knew that they understood dogs. I’m devastated to be moving away and not able to take them with me!" Sarah Feetam 14/7/20
Ad Hoc Dog Walks:
Surrey Ark have been helpful at all times. We are sorry to lose them with our house move out of the area.
Dexter has been very reliable. He has accommodated my ever-changing work rota, and all my last minute requests with a smile, and Charlie, our very lively Labrador, loves him! Nina Hunt 3/9/19
"We have used The Surrey Ark a couple of times, to take care of our two dogs. We have been really happy with the service – the dogs were relaxed and, although very pleased to see us return, had obviously had a good time with Leah and Sue. We would thoroughly recommend them to others. It was also a bonus to know that our house wasn’t left empty whilst we were away. Thank you very much for enabling us to relax and enjoy our holidays, knowing that the dogs were being well looked after." Kate 12/6/19
Care and Behaviour
We are so grateful to have found Sue and the team at Surrey Ark. After rehoming our nervous rescue girl, Sally, we've needed extra support in settling her in and getting her used to spending time alone. Sue has really gone above and beyond for us, she genuinely cares about Sally and making sure we all go at a pace she is comfortable with. We are so grateful for the support of Sue and Tugba and feel that Sally is in such safe hands when she's spending time with them. We have also learned an enormous amount about nervous dogs thanks to Sue's expertise. Sally has come such a long way, showing more and more of her personality and even making friends with Sue's lovely dogs too. We can't thank you enough for everything you have done for us!

"I wanted to say how much we love and value Tugba. She really cares for Penny like she's her own. She updates me all the time and I'm always receiving pictures of Penny on her walks. Always having the best time! It's so nice to know she's in the best hands." Yasmin Charlton 19/2/19
Multi pet care:
Leah is amazing. She obviously loves animals and looks after our many pets - two cats, one rabbit, three fish and a gecko! - when we are away. The photos and videos she sends reassure my daughter that all is well at home and make us all happy. Thanks Leah - 👍 Judi 5/2/19
'Surrey Ark are brilliant I have been using them on and off for 2 years from when I got Pixie as a kitten and I was working up in central London I wanted to have someone come in and play with her so she wasn't left too long on her own to now when I go on holiday and both my cats Pixie and Moon need feeding. It is so nice that they send me photos of the cats so I can see that they are happy and well looked after/fed while I am away. The girls are lovely and really nice I trust them with my cats. Highly recommend using Surrey Ark to look after your pets. Laura Searle, Jan 2018
“I just wanted to say how fab SURREY Ark have been this year. When we first needed help in April when Barney was just 8 weeks old they all offered such help that it made us easier welcoming a new puppy to our home. It is always a pleasure to meet the wonderful ladies and Barney although 10 months old now still greets them like old friends !
We have needed help as my husband not been too well but Surrey Ark are so very flexible. I can totally recommend them and all the ladies are terrific.” Lindsay Smale 20/12/18
Regular Dog Walking:
The Surrey Ark have done a fantastic job walking our young Labrador 5 days a week, we trust them absolutely with our fur baby. Claire Whittaker Dec 2018
Review - Regular Cat Care Leah and the team at the Surrey Ark have been looking after our cats since 2013, and we are more than happy to recommend their services. They are extremely professional, reliable and trustworthy, and they obviously love looking after the animals. We always come home to very happy cats who have been well cared for when we are away and we have found that using the Surrey Ark is a much better option than going to a cattery. We also love seeing the pictures that they take of the cats when we are away so that we know they are well & having lots of cuddles & attention! Please don’t hesitate to contact me should you require any further information. Val Donovan 23rd January 2018

"Leah is doing a super job and Opti is the most calm and settled after she has been. She has an amazing effect on him." Emma Houghton December 2015
Surrey Ark has been fantastic. When we first moved to Surrey, they graciously accepted Picasso our 6 year old cockapoo for regular walks. The girls have done a ...great job with him- very punctual, thorough and gentle. I had requested regular updates and rest assured they kept me informed on a consistent basis. Overall, I will highly recommend anyone looking for focussed walks for their pets. Thank you! Prerna Goel August 2016
Cat Care: *****
Fantastic service from The Surrey Ark! They did an excellent job of looking after our cats whilst we were away for our wedding. It was lovely that we were able ...to see our cats on the facebook page, knowing they were well fed and were given lots of attention and cuddles. Would 100% recommend them and will use again. Sarah Sambles 6/7/15

5 stars! Great care of our Bengal cat India. Lovely people who brought out the best in our elderly grumpy girl! Jacqueline Cullen 26/7/15
Dog Sitting: "★★★★★ I just want to thank Carl for staying the week with Cassidy in our home. Cassidy loves company and good long walks and I know she had the best of both. Not only was Cassidy loved, well fed, and walked but our home was kept clean (not easy with shedding dog) and without even asking my clean dishes in the dishwasher were put away. WOW, I was impressed and I will definitely ask Carl and Surrey Ark to help me with Cassidy again in the future. Thank you!" Paula Dykstra-Gonzales Oct 2014
Regular Dog Walking: Thank you to the The Surrey Ark team for all your great work and support this year. I would honestly be lost without you ! My two terrors really love you and their outings.
