Joe called in to feed our cat while we were away for a week. He was friendly, professional and reliable throughout. He also fed the fish and even left us a pint of milk for our return. When he came in a few days later to collect payment our cat came up to say hello, a rarity with anyone other than ourselves! Will certainly be using Joe again!

Joe has been regularly walking and day caring Bibi for a while now and I can’t recommend him highly enough. Bibi absolutely adores the experience and goes crazy when collected, she loves the attention and care Joe gives her. The flexibility with respect to collection and drop off is a huge plus compared to other services. When asked to bath Bibi or clip her nails, it has never been too much trouble and she always returns sparkling and fresh. Joe has an upbeat, positive attitude and puts his clients needs first. A real business with a super service. I feel very lucky to have found him.
Joe walks Pip, my 12 year old Jack Russel on a weekly basis and I really don’t know what I’d do without him. He is upbeat, punctual, and his love for animals is evident in the way he works. It is comforting to know that I don’t have to worry about her being in safe hands as you can tell how much she loves him from the way she acts when he turns up. I honestly wouldn’t be able to recommend his services highly enough and only wish I’d found Joe sooner.
Joe has looked after our cat, Crazy when we’ve been away several times now and it’s obvious that he cares a great deal for every animal he minds. Crazy is, like many cats, nervous around new people but she took to Joe immediately. Importantly, he does everything he states on the website: a free of charge preliminary trip to meet your pet, spending a proper amount of time during visits, cleaning trays, feeding, a fresh pint of milk in the fridge on your return (a lovely touch!) and more. Our favorite aspect of his service is the detailed write-up he provides of how each day went so you really feel that you know how your pet got on in your absence. If anyone, like us, has had bad experiences with boarding their cat, Stone’s Pet Services is an excellent alternative.
A truly great service!

Stone’s Pet Services have a professional, flexible and friendly approach to business – I recommend them to my family and friends without hesitation.
Joe is reliable and punctual and has excellent communication skills. He produces clear documentation for each animal and even sends me informal updates by text to let me know that our puppy (Noodles) is OK; this is very reassuring.
Joe has endless patience and is sensitive to the importance of reinforcing training and routines. It is clear that Joe loves Noodles and Noodles absolutely adores Joe!

Joe is just so impressive! He is bright and enthusiastic and clearly passionate about animals. He is flexible and professional and always willing to accommodate our requests. We are two working professionals and use Joe’s services for daycare, boarding and walks on a regular basis. We love our dog Clive so much and wouldn’t trust him with just anyone! On the few occasions we have been home to see Clive greet Joe, there is no doubt in our minds… Clive loves him even more than we do!

Joe walks Missy our 10 month old Weimaraner and we’re delighted with how sensible, capable and trustworthy he is. Missy has so much energy and can be a real handful but Joe gets the best out of her and she comes back from her walks calm and satisfied. It’s great knowing that she’s in Joe’s safe care whilst we’re at work, and even better that she absolutely loves him. I recently had an unexpected day off work and saw how great they are together. We didn’t take the decision to use a dog walker lightly as we’ve heard many horror stories but Joe allayed our fears and I would recommend Stone’s Pet Services to anyone who is looking for a worry-free, friendly, flexible and professional service.

Joe takes Sandy for daycare 5 days a week and we have seen with our own eyes just how excited she gets when she knows Joe has come to take her. Joe is so accommodating and really does keep up with our changing timetables and lucky for us he is always OK with us chopping and changing even when it is short notice. Joe is so friendly and seems to really care for Sandy which is so lovely for us to see. We love seeing Sandy when she comes back in the evening, she’s so exhausted that she just flops down and falls asleep right away! We are so happy with Stone’s Pet Services and we would (and have done) recommend them to anyone. – Jemma and Wayne
Joe has been looking after Cooper for 18 months and in that time he has been 100% reliable, flexible to our requirements and has always loved him like his own dog. Whether it was for walks, daycare , boarding or haircuts we have always been totally confident that Coops was in safe hands and having a great time. Joe will be missed by us all, but Coops will be having holidays in Northampton! – Tracey and James
Joe has been helping us to look after our Cockapoo Jeremy for two years, ever since we brought our puppy home. Joe has been brilliant with our dog, and Jeremy loves going off with him. He has been totally trustworthy and dependable. We have trusted him with the key to our home and with looking after our dog when we aren’t around. He has never let us down. He always keeps us informed, and is extremely flexible; he has always been happy to take Jeremy out on extra days or to swap days when we have asked this. He is very approachable and friendly, and has a happy but professional manner. We will all really miss Joe. I would recommend his pet services without reservation. – Barbara
Our dog Nehru has been with Joe all day everyday since he was 1 year old. He looks after him like he would his own dog, in fact we are sure if we were to test it…Nehru would choose Joe over us any day! He is very trustworthy and has had the keys to our house from day 1. When we manage to catch up with him we always get a detailed report on how Nehru is doing. By spending everyday with Joe, Nehru has had the opportunity to be in a loving homely environment while also being able to play with other dogs. We always had the piece of mind that he is well looked after while we are at work. We have also left Nehru to stay with Joe overnight when needed. We are very sad that due to re-locating we will have to find somewhere else for Nehru to go to, and are so thankful for everything Joe has done for us and Nehru over the last year. We would strongly recommend anyone to send their dog to Stone’s Pet services, it is not a large firm with many dog carers….you are guaranteed that your dog will be looked after all day by Joe. Thank you again Joe…You are going to be greatly missed! – Priya and Anup
