What Clients Say

“I couldn’t recommend Chrissy highly enough! As someone who is overly cautious about leaving my Lab with anyone, after meeting with Chrissy and knowing her experience and care towards him as if he’s her own, put my mind at ease. Our Lab now waits excitedly by the door waiting to hear the van pull up to go out with his pack and comes back even more happy and ready to sleep after a nice long walk. As I work full time, knowing my Lab is getting his stimulation during the day with a group he loves makes it all worth it. We’ve been with Muddy Mutts for a long time now and have no doubt Oscar is in good hands when out with Chrissy”

- Kyle

“My pups have never been happier and neither have I. Professional, reliable, and invested in quality care with the bonus of being a certified trainer. No one I trust more than Chrissy to watch after my fur babies”

- Jackie

“Toby and Bella our cocker spaniels greet Chrissy with enthusiasm. They loved their puppy visits and now enjoy group walks. We are happy our precious dogs are with Chrissy who we completely trust and have confidence in”

- Liz

“Knowing the cats are well looked after and cared for by Chrissy in their own home has meant we can relax and enjoy our holidays. Chrissy understands how hard it is for owners to leave their cats and sends updates and photos which is so reassuring. I would absolutely recommend Muddy Mutts to anyone considering a cat care service for the first time. Your cats will thank you!”

- Louisa

“From the very first moment I dealt with Chrissy I was impressed by her professionalism and friendliness. My confidence in leaving Roscoe with her was boosted even more by her sheer enthusiasm for her job, you can really tell she loves her walks and caring for her “family” of pooches. If you’re looking for an honest, reliable, friendly, professional dog walker, you’ve just found one!”

- Kate

“From the start of our communication it was obvious Chrissy was professional and really cared about the dogs she looks after.

The dogs are transported in a van with separate crates so not all the dogs a thrown in together and she makes sure the new dogs she takes on are suitable for the group

Chrissy is well organised, professional and easy to communicate with. The proof that her business is a success is in the fact that my two boys are always excited to go out with her, rain or shine, and they sleep for hours afterwards: thank you Chrissy! I would definitely recommend her!”

- Alex

“Wonderful service; very kind and loving treatment of our cat. Can’t go wrong with Muddy Mutts!”

- Jessica

“When I first met Chrissy I was impressed by her thorough approach to finding out about the personality & needs of my dog. Roxy adores her (rather too much for my liking!!). The Daily Diary updates are great for keeping me in touch with what Roxy has been up to and the photos demonstrate what a fun time she has. In addition, Roxy’s recall has improved no end since walking with Chrissy. I am able to go to work secure in the knowledge that Roxy is looking forward to her walk and that she is being well looked after. Chrissy is reliable and professional I would not hesitate to recommend her services”

- Caroline

“Excellent, friendly reliable service”

- Peter

“Chrissy has been walking my 10 year old Lab/Retriever cross for some months, since I was first given her. I am unable to walk any distance now, so it was essential that I found someone who was reliable, energetic and with whom the dog would enjoy going out on long walks. I am delighted to say that Chrissy fills all these categories. As well, my dog’s general behaviour has improved a great deal and I find her more easy to manage on the short walks I am able to do. I thoroughly recommend anyone looking for a dog-walker to approach Chrissy”

- Linda

“Fantastic care and at quite short notice. No job too big for Muddy Mutts. I particularly enjoyed my in depth updates and photos whilst being away from my loved ones. Thank you Chrissy, you’re a star!”

- Elysia

“Muddy Mutts is AMAZING!! Chrissy is the best — would highly recommend her to anyone looking for dog walking or behavioural services”

- Julia

“Milly has been walking with Muddy Mutts for over 2 years now and she loves being with Chrissy and her doggy friends every day. Chrissy is great, really flexible and takes great care of the dogs. I would recommend her services to anyone x”

- Sarah

“I can’t praise Muddy Mutts of Harrogate enough! Marley absolutely loves his days out with Chrissy and remarkably comes back all hosed down and clean after a days playing! It’s so obvious how much Chrissy adores animals and they obviously adore her. I love seeing the pics and videos on FB and getting my diaries on what Marley has been up to during the day, is just as if your furry pooch was a child at day care! Excellent, professional, caring service, thankyou Chrissy xx”

- Joanne

“Chrissy walks our Boxer, Natty, 3 times a week, every week and we are absolutely delighted with the service. Chrissy is reliable, trustworthy and very professional, taking time to get to know each dog she walks to ensure that they are happy and respectful in each others company. The varied walks encompassing woods, open fields and rivers ensure the dogs are stimulated and entertained during their exercise routine with Chrissy and I can go to work 100% confident that I have nothing to worry about and will return home to a happy tired dog….and a very clean one at that! The daily diaries and photos are a great way of keeping up to date with Natty’s outings – I would highly recommend Chrissy to anyone”

- Claudia

“Chrissy looks after our one year old Bernese Mountain dog, Wilma, twice daily to prepare her for group walks when a little older and a little more confident. From the very start, Chrissy has been professional and is clearly knowledgeable about dogs – she’s very calm, understands how to communicate with them and has good training techniques all of which are helping to slowly bring Wilma out of her shell. Chrissy is reliable, flexible and trustworthy. She clearly loves her work, and that shows in the care she gives, not just to Wilma, but also to me in being flexible and extremely helpful.

Thank you Chrissy, you’ve been a lifesaver! I would highly recommend you to anyone – it’s a real joy to know your pet is in the safe hands of someone who so obviously loves dogs!”

- Alexena

“Chrissy has been so helpful and patient with Bella, who is very nervous of strangers. Chrissy has spent lots of time getting to know Bella gradually and building up her trust on a one to one basis. We are now at the point where Chrissy can come into the house and take Bella out and even get cuddles, which is amazing progress for Bella. I really appreciate the time and effort, not something all dog walkers are willing to do”

- Debbie

“Chrissy has been walking my 2 greyhounds, Billy and Jess for a few months. It was a big risk for me to trust someone else to look after them, especially since Jess hasn’t been well and needs special treatment for a period of time. Chrissy has proved to be a professional, competent and caring person, she looks after my dogs very well and they love her. You get much more than just a dog walker and your dog will be safe and happy. I would recommend her to anyone”

- Ange

“Delighted with this service, Chrissy worked with my dog through a difficult time when she became untrustworthy off the lead, helping me with training and working together on solutions. She is now trustworthy off the lead again and behaving much better, such a relief and very much down to Chrissy’s consistent working with me and with the dog and the excellent communication always putting me in the driving seat with her training. Teamwork is a big deal with Chrissy and this is why we have come through so well. The daily email helped enormously with videos and photos of all of my dog’s “best” friends as well as tips and advice when strategies worked”

- Antonia

“Warning! Your dog will love Chrissy more than your dog loves you!!! Brodie has been walking with Chrissy since she was 16 weeks old and is now 6 months old – they formed a firm friendship from the outset. Chrissy has also been a positive behavioural influence on Brodie. Chrissy takes a little bit of time on each walk to do some training drills with Brodie and this has had a marked effect on Brodie’s obedience. I am a happy daddy with a happy puppy!”

- Nick

“Chrissy has been visiting our pointer puppy for a number of weeks and we couldn’t be happier with the service she provides. She visits twice a day, giving much needed care, company, training and socialisation while we go to work, safe in the knowledge that our pup is in good hands! Her daily updates are thorough and informative, offering a great insight into our doggy’s day and we can see that her time spent on training is really paying off. We would recommend Muddy Mutts to anyone!”

- Julia

” I felt totally confident that my cats were well cared for while we were away and that I had no problem handing over my house keys to Chrissy, thank you”

- Gail

“We needed care for one elderly but robust hen. Chrissy asked all the right questions about care and routine so we knew nothing was forgotten. It was lovely to hear by text that all was well and Chrissy was enjoying the eggs! Such a good service, we will use again and highly recommend. We were very grateful, thank you” 

- Andrew and Cathy

“As a new puppy owner it has been fantastic to have Chrissy helping out with puppy visits. I can relax knowing that Barney is in good hands and that he has fun and training whilst I’m out – or can sleep if that’s what he needs! Chrissy is lovely – enthusiastic, helpful, knowledgeable and passionate about what she does. I feel we are in really good hands and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her”

- Rachel

“Chrissy was involved with our new puppy even before we brought her home as she offered valuable advice on puppy development and training needs and has helped us as a family start off on the right foot with our gorgeous Wheaten Terrier, Freya. Chrissy has been doing puppy home visits helping Freya with toilet training, socialisation, some early puppy foundation training and of course cuddles and care for Freya! This has progressed to puppy 1-2-1 walks now Freya is a little older and Chrissy gives training and socialisation tips from each walk while Freya enjoys a foray out to the local park with on her visit days. We are delighted with the knowledgeable care and support Chrissy has provided – and of course Freya loves her and can’t wait to join the group walkies when she is old enough! We recommend Chrissy highly for all your puppy care and training needs!”
