"Thank you Pads n Pets, we cannot begin to express how grateful we are for the excellent care and service you provided during our recent trip away. You made us feel completely at ease, keeping us appraised of Oreo's well-being which was reassuring for all of us (especially our daughter) to know that he was happy and safe.
"Pads ‘n’ Pets - Pets Sitting & Dog Walking were brilliant. They are totally trustworthy and reliable. In the past when I have gone away, I always felt uneasy about the house being left, but with Pads 'n' Pets keeping an eye on my house and drawing the curtains in the evening and in the morning, also leaving different lights on around the house to make it look like someone was occupying the property made my break far more enjoyable. I cannot sing their praises enough and I would highly recommend this company. Thank you so much Pets ‘n’ Pads. "

"We recently went away for a week and I was very worried about leaving my elderly deaf cat in a cattery so I contacted Pads ‘n’ Pets, who are very local to me, my mind was immediately put at ease. Amanda & Shelley obviously love animals, they looked after my cat extremely well and were not phased by her tendency to completely miss the litter tray on occasions! They also opened and closed curtains, turning lights on and off to make the house look occupied.
I am very happy with their service and highly recommend them. It’s also obvious my cat was much happier to be at home too, so never again will she go to a cattery!"
Denise, South Leeds
"Hi guys, thanks for looking after our four babies so well! Will defo be recommending and reusing your service in the future. We would love to have more spontaneous weekends away and now we can. It was fantastic to have a pet sitter near us in Woodlesford sorted at such short notice. But most of all, the peace of mind was priceless! No more worrying! Thanks again."
"Just to say a big thank you for looking after our little puppy Buster - we have total piece of mind knowing that you guys will visit him during the day for a dash around the fields & some play time! We appreciate the pics & updates and for your flexibility to fit in with our work schedules! We would definitely recommend your very friendly, flexible & reliable service.

We had Pads 'n' Pets watch over our house for a long weekend which also included looking after our 4 house cats.
They did a fantastic job while we were away, they came to sort out the cats litter tray and feed the cats twice a day which also included giving medication to one of the cats, which they were able to do with no problem.
Most importantly they also spent quality time with them as well on every feed, so they are not just a turn up, feed and go service, which I think is vital when the cats are on their own for a couple of days.
I also asked if they were able to give the house a clean for when we returned for an extra cost. They did this, vacuuming, dusting and moping floors so we returned to a clean tidy house.
Great service in looking after the house and more importantly (to us) the cats but also great to come home to a clean house.
Thanks Pads 'n' Pets

"A very big thank you from Star and Tabatha. We are very happy, we have our mum and dad home but we will miss your visits. You came to feed us twice a day and clean our smelly tray but you stopped for a play and gave us lots of treat's. Mum said that we look well fed and there is no mess anywhere. She also said that you will come and see us again soon. We have loved you coming over and will look forward to the next time they decide to go away as they know that we will be safe in your fantastic care.
Love Always Star and Tabatha xxxxx"

We were very lucky to have found Pads 'n' Pets. They were able to accommodate us at very short notice. We have 4 cats all who have different likes and dislikes. Shelley took a biography of each of them and even my most shy cats came to her which, gave me great piece of mind. Everything was done, lights, curtains, cats trays. Not only is Shelley a true professional, she has a lovely bubbly personality. Thankfully, I have a new trusted cat sitter/house sitter and have found a new true friend. Thank you for everything.xxx"
Ian & Moira, South Leeds
"We thought that the service we received was well thought out and very professional. Shelley was very helpful and we felt confidant about leaving our cats and house in her hands. We will definitely be using the service again in the near future and can recommend it to other people".

Thank you so much for being so accommodating and taking Macy on 2 days a week at such short notice. I can't recommend Pads n Pets highly enough. It's so difficult to find this kind of flexibility and great service. I get a text after each visit so while I'm at work I know I don't need to worry about Macy. Totally trustworthy, reliable and accommodating- thank you so much.
Claire & Macy.
"HUGE thank you to Pads 'n' Pets for looking after our Cat Billy while me and my parter were on holiday. I honestly can't speak highly enough about Amanda & Shelley! They were both very friendly from the off set and made me feel at ease straight away. I trusted them 100% with Billy and knew he would be in good cable hands. Never again would I consider putting Billy in a cattery when Amanda & Shelley do a wonderful job whilst keeping Billy in his own surroundings. Our holiday was relaxed knowing that Billy was well looked after, and even had a message during our holiday with a update on how Billy was, which was a lovely personal touch. Would recommend Pads 'n' Pets to all my family & friends, please do not hesitate to get in touch with these lovely ladies!!!"

Your home safe package is a great added extra too, knowing that someone is calling to open and close your curtains and even bring your bin back in on bin day gives you peace of mind that your home is safe.
It is obvious that Shelley and Amanda are animal lovers who make you and your pet’s happiness their number one priority. I would recommend to everyone I know."
D.Dudley, South Leeds
"Amanda and Shelley are very lovely and friendly ladies and I am well pleased with Cassies walks. Cassie is so much happier, jumping around and will be much healthier for her regular walks. I am very grateful to all of Amanda and Shelley help and I would happily recommend them to anyone."
Christine and Cassie, South Leeds
"Shelley and Amanda are very friendly, helpful and efficient animal pet sitters. My cats immediately took to them. They are both trustworthy and delightful people.
I will recommend them to anyone. On my return from my short break my pets were happy and contented in their expert and friendly care. Many Thanks"

With 4 Cats going on holiday is difficult. Previously we've used cattery’s and although they would always be well looked after, our cats never enjoyed the experience. We found that placing our trust in cat sitters was the best thing ever for our cats. That’s when we found Pets n Pads.
Shelley and Amanda were great. We had a visit from them both prior to us going away. They came and learned the ropes and took us through even all the little things to ensure that they could keep our routine going as if we were not even away. Feeding, watering and managing the cat litter box as standard. As well as lots of love, attention and cuddles!
During the meeting we discussed which vets to go to in case of an emergency. All bases were covered. We were both extremely impressed with how professional and efficient the whole service was. As well as their clear love of animals. For once we felt confident and happy to be leaving our cats. Whilst away we received text to reassure us everyone was doing well, with a picture of them, which was a really nice touch.
When we got home the greatest sign that things had been running smoothly was the fact that the cats didn't even bother when we walked in. It was like we'd just been at work for a day.
It really was the best thing for the cats and that's what matters to us the most.
We recommend cat sitting so much now over taking cats to a cattery. We were really impressed with Pets n Pads. Shelley and Amanda were amazing and we will definitely use them next time we go away.

"I was a bit nervous when looking for a reliable company to come into my home and look after my cat, Mischa. She is a very loving house cat, but she has a condition that requires medication to be administered orally, on a daily basis, which is often hard to do.
I have to say that Amanda and Shelley have done a fantastic job of looking after Mischa and I
would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone looking for a pet sitting service in Leeds. They are honest, trustworthy, adaptable and, importantly, very nice people to deal with, who always make the extra effort to do a great job. It’s wonderful to know that I can leave my cat in their safe hands, without worrying about her or her medical condition.
Thank you Pads n Pets."

"Hi Shelley & Amanda, thank you so much for looking after Fraggle for us, she was in a much happier mood when we got back than she is normally! It was great to know she was in safe hands and getting her daily treats. We loved the text message! We will recommend you to all we meet."

"As we only rescued our cat Dennis recently we were slightly apprehensive about leaving him for the weekend, however upon meeting Shelley we found she was very friendly and professional and Dennis immediately seemed happy to have her around. We were kept updated by texts about how Dennis was doing while we were away, which was great and put our minds at ease. She also fed our pet turtles and watered plants, which helped us out enormously! We will definitely be using their services again and would recommend them highly to anyone else. Thanks guys!"
Thank you so much Shelley and Amanda for taking care of George and radley while we were on holiday. We will certainly recommend your service to all our friends, family and we wouldn't hesitate to using you again many thanks

"Shelley and Amanda are fantastic! Cannot recommend them enough. I know Eric is in the best of care when they take him out for his walks. They are so friendly, trustworthy & professional. Thank you both so much. X"
Louise & Bonner
From the moment Shelley came round, I could tell that Harriet was going to be in safe caring hands. Shelley put me at ease straight away and Harriet was happy to make friends. It was good to have time away knowing that my cat and home were well looked after. I would highly recommend your service and hope to book you again soon.
"We weren't sure that it was fair to have a dog as we both worked full time but once speaking to Shelley it was clear that with the help of Pads n Pets it would be possible.
As Betsie was a puppy we chose the puppy service and it worked perfectly. We left in the morning and Shelley came in for half an hour at lunchtime to play, feed and generally just check everything was ok with Betsie.
I cannot recommend Pads n Pets highly enough. They make it possible to have a pet even when you work, they are professional and are so helpful."
" I cannot speak highly enough of Amanda and Shelley and the service they provide! I used to be nervous about leaving Millie and Cleo but now have such confidence that they are in reliable, trustworthy and safe hands that I can finally relax when I'm away. Amanda and Shelley always go the extra mile and are truly lovely people! Pads 'n' Pets are now my go to people for pet sitting. Thank you for being so fabulous and keep up the good work!"
After surgery I was unable to take Freckles out myself and was feeling guilty that she was having no exercise. I remembered I had seen an advert for Pads 'n Pets, so I contacted Shelley and after meeting her we arranged that she would call and take Freckles out twice a week. Once recovered, I continued the service. Shelley now calls regularly, is reliable and is alway smiling. Freckles is pleased to see her. I would recommend the service to anyone in a similar position, either as a 'one off' or as a regular arrangement.
Kath and Freckles, Leeds 11
Just a quick thank you to Shelley for doing my cat sit for me. It was a very good service, I will call on you again. Jet was excellent and I had a great holiday. I would recommend your company to anyone and I will be in touch when I need to use your services again. Thanks xx
Shelley takes good care of our little ones - trustworthy and reliable - thank you! I would highly recommend.
We would like to thank you for caring for our chickens while we were on holiday.
It was good to relax knowing your were coming twice a day to let them in and out, feed, water and care for them.
We were very surprised when we found out that they had begun to lay their first lot of eggs while we were away.
It was an unusual request for you to care for chickens, however you were professional and came to meet with my husband who talked you through their daily routines and how to care and feed them.
You were kind enough to borrow us your light timers and moved our daily post and put out our bins, all of which helped to make our home look lived in while we were away and more secure.
We will definately use you again, your service is friendly, accessible and most of all professional. I will contact you as soon as our 2015 holidays are booked.

We found Pads 'n Pets in a crucial moment when we were about to travel but had no-one to take care of our beloved cats. Shelley was very helpful and made us feel very comfortable from the beginning, which made us very confident and relaxed to go on our travel. It was a very nice experience for us and every time we need someone to look for our cats we will certainly ask Shelley to help us.
Mari and Ricky, Morley
Great service above and beyond what you pay for!! Even text when they thought I wouldn't make it back in time due to snow, that they would continue to look after my cat until I returned!! Came home to a happy happy cat!! Defo use again.

Shelley was great with our puppy, Ruby. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a puppy sitter/dog walker.
Rach Elle and Ruby
Excellent service!...Shelley was so patient with our dog as he was a little nervous to start with.
Been meaning to put a review on for ages. Shelley is just fab - our two dogs love her! The service she provides is invaluable to us as two full time working adults and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone.

Shelley is brilliant with Sacha our rottie cross. She is really reliable and always happy to help out at short notice.
Sacha love her walks and meeting her friends.
Thank you Shelley!
Judith and James
Shelley has been walking my dog Riley for 9 months now and I don't know what I'd do without her! He has a brilliant time, is looked after superbly and if there's ever a problem or something I need to know, Shelley will always let me know.
I thoroughly recommend Pads 'n' Pets, keep up the brilliant work!!
Stephen and Riley
I started using Pads 'n' Pets only this year as I hadn't been on holiday for a long while and my usual cattery had closed. As there was such a big gap I decided to have my cats looked after at home since they are both 13 and one of them is particularly shy and timid.
After checking the internet, Shelley's website appealed and she responded promptly to my enquiry. She came to my house with all the necessary documentation and to meet my pets. She is very friendly and I immediately felt at ease with her as did the cats, even my little shy one!
I texted her whilst I was away, she was happy to report and was very reassuring to an anxious mum!
Nothing is too much trouble and she was able to approach my timid cat and stroke her. My other one being a people person so no problems there.
I am extremely pleased with the way she looked after my cats and my home. The house was spotless upon my return and the cats in a fabulous condition, well fed and healthy.
I was lucky enough to take a second holiday and again all was satisfactory:
Bins put out and brought back
Outside and indoor lights switched on in readiness for our late return (this without being asked - how thoughtful was that!)
I have no hesitation in recommending Shelley and her professional, friendly services to anyone who requires expert and caring pet sitting at home.
Also the prices are very reasonable too!!
