See what some of my customers, past and present, have to say about my business….

"In late 2019, our beautiful dachshund, Lulu, was diagnosed with inflammatory bowel disease. After several flare ups and an additional diagnosis of protein losing enteropathy, in early 2021, our easy to care for family dog, wasn’t so easy to care for and had incredibly strict dietary and medication needs. If we ever wanted to travel without Lulu, from that point onwards, she would need a specific level of care that not all licensed dog sitters can, or in fact, feel they want to provide. Our trusted vet, Roger Holden, understood our predicament; our specific needs/concerns so he introduced us to Zena. The rest is history. We haven’t looked back and everything he said Zena was and would be for Lulu and us, she is! Zena has made such a difference to us as a family. She has given us the gift of being able to travel and holiday. We leave Lulu (with us shedding tears that Zena totally gets), comfortably knowing that Zena is providing a loving, caring, adaptive and safe home for our precious Lulu to holiday. We will be forever grateful for meeting Zena. From her reassuring approach, the communications (how, when and frequency), to how she thoroughly captures the details, priorities and needs of Lulu is just as important as the home from home love she shows for our precious fur baby, Lulu. Thank you, Zena. Thank you!"

The McCartney Family

"Our 3 year old Goldendoodle has been visiting Zena since September 2021, for weekly daycare and holiday visits. He settled in straight away and it has been like a home from home for him. There is nothing better than seeing how happy your dog is to see Zena at drop off! She is so professional, caring & welcoming, and immensely conscientious. In our experience Zena really works with her customers to give the dog's the best experience. We can't recommend Zena highly enough and we wouldn't take our dog to anyone else."

Ria P

"Zena has been absolutely brilliant with our little dog, Maxie, over the past few months. Maxie can take a while to warm up to people, but she and Zena are forming a lovely bond and I know she's in great hands on her daycare days. You can tell how much Zena cares for all the dogs she looks after and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for doggy daycare!"

Cassie P

"We used not to leave our lurcher Dougal very often, he can be quite a complex dog and we found people just didn’t understand him or know what he needed to be at his best. We are so delighted to have found Zena, she welcomes Dougal like one of her own and takes wonderful care of him, particularly now he is a bit older and arthritic. She has adapted things in her home to make sure he is comfortable and relaxed and he seems to adore being part of her household, we love the picture of him lounging around with her own dogs. We have finally found someone we trust 100% to look after him. The icing on the cake is her professionalism, she is so organised and really reliable. We look forward to dropping him off, knowing he will have as lovely a holiday as we will!"

Louise S

"My dog Dora was very nervous about being with new people and other dogs. Zena understood Dora’s needs and took everything at her pace. Dora now loves her walks and day care with Zena, I get video’s of Dora running about and playing with her dog friends. Dora has now become one of the most playful dogs of the group. It has been a relief to find someone where my Dog is happy, and that provides such a caring and professional service."

Faye F

"We met Zena earlier this year following a recommendation. Our little Westie, Maggie, can be a little shy and nervous with people at first but goes very happily to Zena, who has been kind and patient and gained her trust. We have found Zena to be very professional, experienced and reliable and we are so lucky to have found her! We are very happy to leave Maggie knowing that she will be well cared for in a happy, relaxing environment and would not hesitate in recommending Zena D Dog Walking services to anyone."

Janice S

"I have been so grateful for Zena and her support since adopting my retired Greyhound rescue. Zena has been so good with Casper, helping him build confidence and being flexible, adapting to his needs as he settles in to his retired life which is very different to his racing one! I have been really impressed with Zena’s professionalism and commitment in her work. It is abundantly clear how passionate Zena is about dogs and caring for them and it’s reassuring to know the dedication she has to the dogs in her care. Thank you Zena 😊"

Stuart P

"We have been using Zena D Dog Walking services for many months now following a recommendation and our Cockerpoo Teddy loves seeing Zena. It’s such a relief to know that Teddy will be well looked after, well walked and well loved throughout his stay in a lovely family home environment. I would highly recommend using Zena's dog walking and home boarding services."

Jamie B

"Zena has been a real saviour and gem when we looked for a dog walker. Her amazing professionalism, her dedication as well as her love for dogs makes her unique . We couldn’t imagine anyone better for Brocky."

Beni & Jeremy

" We first met Zena when we were visiting Farnham to see what it was like before relocating from Jersey with our miniature labradoodle called Ozzie. Zena was on one of her dog walks in Farnham park and my husband and I were very impressed with how she handled the dogs she had with her and how obedient and happy they were. We approached her for her contact details and as soon as we moved to the area we got in touch. Zena has been walking and boarding Ozzie ever since. To see how excited Ozzie gets when Zena comes to the door is truly amazing...his tail wagging constantly and he doesn’t have to get asked to go with her, he is out of the door like a shot! It’s funny at times because when I walk Ozzie (when Zena doesn’t have him) we can bump into her in the park. Ozzie then chooses to walk with Zena and not me -🤣 I have to call him back!! Zena is very organised, her transport is amazing and safe for the dogs. She is affordable, reliable and extremely flexible. We are SO glad that we met her in the park that day. 👍🐶👍"

Kathryn O

"Zena has been looking after our very energetic (and sometimes challenging) 18 month old Cockapoo for over 6 months now and I cannot recommend her highly enough. Zena is super reliable, organised but, best of all, Loki loves going for walks with her and some doggie friends. Zena has taken the time to match the different doggie personalities to maximise the enjoyment for the pooches in her care which has made all the difference."


"Zena has been walking and dog sitting my rescue Border Collie since I brought her home in November 2016. She is a sensitive little soul who was afraid of traffic and going in vehicles (amongst other things) and Zena has been very kind and patient with her, helping to gradually build up her confidence and never pressuring her. I don't have a regular work pattern and Zena always does her utmost to fit us in, even at (sometimes very) short notice. She is very professional and organised, but most important of all Molly loves her and happily goes off off with her for walkies, even when I'm still at home! And when I'm at work, I can relax knowing she is in good and caring hands."

Karen H

"Since spring 2018, shortly after our lovely Kizzy joined us, Zena has been an exceptional dog walker and dog carer for her. She is so good at looking after Kizzy and we feel so lucky to have her help. A very happy customer!"

Joanna D

"Zena has been walking my older dog since she started her business and later also took on my young dog - two very different characters who both love hearing her van arrive and cannot wait for the day’s adventure to begin! I have every confidence in Zena, she is a pleasure to deal with and I trust her implicitly with my boys. I simply do not know what we would do without her!"

Jane P

"Zena has been a revelation! A lovely lady providing a very professional service. Our dog Maggie absolutely loves Zena and Maggie has calmed down a great deal since Zena has started walking her. Zena is a very trustworthy person and I would thoroughly recommend her to anyone."

Andy & Polly

"Our golden retriever is always delighted to see Zena and clearly enjoys his walks! Zena's friendly and professional approach means we wouldn't hesitate to recommend her."

Rebecca G

"Zena has been looking after my puppy Roy. She's been patient, kind, conscientious, and at all times extremely professional. I have been delighted with how she is with Roy. Roy adores her, and I am relaxed and confident with her care. I would recommend her to anyone looking for professional, affordable, and knowledgeable dog care."

Susie C

"My dog has been walked by Zena for quite a while now, previously with her former employer. Marley has always appeared very settled and happy with Zena, so when Zena started her own business I was very happy for her to be one of her new clients. I like the way Zena communicates any concerns with me, the dog is always her priority. I am happy when Zena sends me photos to show Marley is having fun on his walk."

Kathryn H

"Our dog Bob loves going seeing Zena and his friends! Zena is a very kind, friendly person with lots of doggy experience and also very professional. Zena has great communication skills, sending out weekly schedules plus photos and video clips of our dog during his visits & walks. Bob is always so excited to see Zena's van - which I must say, has well fitted cages and never fails to amaze me how beautifully kept it is! - A good reflection of her business generally. I would highly recommend Zena D Dog Walking services."
