''I have had many dogs in my life so far, from German Shepherds, Staffies, a Jack Russell, Labradors, a Japanese Akita, a Tibetan Terrier, and Spaniels. I currently own a one year old cat called Panzer who may as well woof!''

''I have worked in many different animal jobs, from an Exmoor zoo keeper, to a horse riding school groom in Silverstone, a reptile store in Northampton as an animal keeper, as well as being a supervisor at the Moulton College Animal site where they house many domestic and non-domestic animals. I have also worked at the hunting yard in Brigstock, Northants. I have a huge amount of hands on experience with a variety of animals, and any fears within the animal kingdom, (spiders, cockroaches and scorpions) have now evolved into a comfortable and loving relationship!''

"We have been using leads and feeds to walk and look after our 2 dogs for 2 years now and are extremely happy with their service. We often have to ask for extra services sometimes at short notice they are always happily obliging. We trust them implicitly with our dogs who are very well looked after. They also have qualifications and fully understand canine care and training which means they have developed excellent relationships with our dogs. We cannot praise Emily and Hannah enough! We will be using leads and feeds for a long time to come"​

Marie Sullivan - Thrapston

''When I first met Victoria at leads and feeds my staffy, Twinkie, was about 3 months old. Twinkie is now almost two and Victoria has been walking her every day without fail as well as having twinkie stay at her house every so often. I have seen Victoria with my dog and it's obvious that they adore each other - I've never seen a tail wag as enthusiastically as when Victoria walks through the door! I am a first time dog owner and I often call Victoria for help and advice. As I work full time, Victoria had a set of my keys and I trust her implicitly. Leads and feeds are so flexible and always bend over backwards to help me. I can't say enough good things about them! I wouldn't trust my beloved dog with anyone else.''

Pui-Uro - Raunds

"Victoria has been walking our two labradoodles, Lily and Lola, every week day since September 2012. she has also been here on several occasions for overnighters and has done several pop-ins for me when I have had to stay late at work.
She has become invaluable to us and our girls, who love her and wag their tails so much when they see her arrive that they almost fall over! she is friendly, personable, 100 percent reliable and professional at all times.
she has never let us or the pups down and I would recommend her most highly to all those who care about their animals."​

Janette Peters - Aldwinkle

''As a caring dog owner I was a little nervous about having some one walking my dog. She is a young Springer and can be a little naughty.
When I had a meeting with Victoria I was soon put at ease. She is a very confident around my Springer and in return Loulou reacted well to her. They soon built up a good relationship.

I found Victoria very trustworthy. I gave her a key to let her self in and take Loulou for her walk.  She is a all round lovely girl. I would highly recommend her to any of my friends.'​'
