"We have tried a variety of dog walkers in North Yorkshire and not really felt totally happy that our dog Fred was in good hands. That was until we met Carroll.

We are so pleased that our little puppy has someone who he loves to go out and play with. he is a happier and better behaved dog (well most of the time!). Carroll has been the most professional dog walker we've come across and we feel safe that she has all the required paper work, and we know that Fred is well looked after. Not only that but we get a daily diary of what he has been up to so that, even though we are at work, we can still find out what he has been up to. I have to say the best was when we went on holiday for a week and we got pictures and videos of his week with Carroll - it was fantastic and he had a tremendous time - in fact I think he would like to have Carroll as his surrogate Mum!

Thank you for all your help, walking him last minute when we have to work late, and making our dog and happy one. I would recommend Carroll to everyone, she's fab." ~ Sarah  (Freddies Owner)

"I can thoroughly recommend the services of Carroll at Animal Outings. I was at first a little dubious about having a stranger coming to my house while I wasn’t there, but Carroll put my mind at ease with her friendly and professional manner. My two cats, Ozzy and Molly hadn’t been with us very long and the thought of putting them into a cattery just didn’t seem fair to them, so when I found Carroll, it really was a blessing! We booked Carroll to come in over 2 days to “feed and water” them and when we returned it was obvious that they had been very well cared for. Not only does Carroll feed them, but she also takes the time to play and get to know them so they feel confident when she’s around.

I would not hesitate to use Carroll and her fantastic service time and again… our days of booking boarding places are a thing of the past." ~ Jenni Hudson

"I felt like a new mum trying to find a nursery for a baby never been left before. How could anyone look after your baby like you!

I needed someone I could trust twice a week to walk "my baby" - Toby. He's 10 years old and only been walked by family, he is quite a sensitive dog, very quiet and loves routine.

Carroll was recommended to me at the same time as I found her website. When we met she was very professional and had lots of paperwork that made me feel very confident that she was experienced - Toby warmed to her straight away.

Like a new mum, the first time Carroll walked him I was on tenderhooks, but I couldn't be happier and neither could Toby. She built up his confidence by walking him in his environment where he is happy and has slowly and patiently worked up to taking him securely in her car to some fantastic walks, especially if water is involved - Toby is obsessed by water - qualities that Carroll is getting to know just by spending time with him.

She always leaves informative comments of what they've been up to, just like a child's record book from nursery, which I think is excellent and reassuring.

I think meeting Carroll was a gem of a find and I hope the relationship between Carroll and Toby (and me!) continues for a very long time."

"We chose Carroll Shaw and Animal Outings for home boarding Ozzie, our labrador, for a month while we were on vacation.

Carroll was always friendly and approachable and easy to contact at any time of the day or evening. Ozzie was walked daily in the beautiful Yorksire countryside, fed the same detailed diet we feed, wormed on our request when due, weighed, trained and played with all day and evening. It was obvious from the emails, SMS messages, phone calls, photos and video that he was being cared for extremely well and was happy, safe and secure. He was well socialised with other dogs and even came home with better manners than he left with!

Carroll took a detailed history/notes before we left our dog with her, and in doing that I felt she was really taking the time to get to know him and understand him, something which I've never seen by a pet carer before and my husband and I were both very impressed with this. 

Animal Outings made our holiday all the more amazing because we could relax in the knowledge that our dog was in the next best thing to home. 

Carroll is an angel to whom nothing is too much trouble and we'll recommend her to family and friends, We'll definately use her services in the future again if we need boarding." ~ Vanessa Tocher
