Yvonne Bradford - October 2016
Lisa has again been brilliant She has just looked after Max the naughty springador!!! Completely unphased by Max and his cheeky traits - Max always returns home relaxed and happy. This is invaluable for us as Max wouldn't have survived a week in kennels!! We will be using Lisa again (obviously!!) and recommending to all we know and beyond. Thanks VERY much Lisa x
Louise Wakefield - October 2016
Our lab Daisy has just spent the week with Lisa. Daisy can be a bit of a boisterous dog, she is only 14 months old. I was worried about her, the pond & house but Lisa didn't seemed fazed and was very reassuring that all would be fine. We received lots of updates via Facebook & a text cos we didn't have wifi on holiday. Lisa has looked after Daisy wonderfully with 2 lovely walks in the forest each day and a nice cozy sofa bed to flake on after she's finished playing with her little pup friends. I am very happy with all that Lisa has provided for Daisy and highly recommend her. We will be contacting Paws a while with me for future stays :) Many thanks Lisa and Co x

Lisa has recently had Winston our Labrador. Last time we went away we put him in kennels and he didn't have the best experiences, so we looked at an alternative for him. We came across Lisa through facebook. Impressed with her reviews we arrange a meet for her and Winston prior to him staying with her. She is very patient and very friendly. She has been fabulous with Winston during our time away. Winston is a highly excitable and boisterous dog and Lisa has looked after him fabulously. We have had constant updates and pictures to see how he's getting on with his doggy holiday! Highly recommend to anyone! Will be using her services next time we go away for sure! :)
Ryan Smith - October 2016
This is the 3rd Year that Lisa has looked after Bella for us - we've loved the updates and have come home to a very contented happy cat. She would hate kennels so this is ideal for us and her. Once again thank you so much for the great care you take looking after Bella.
Louisa La Roux - October 2016
Lisa looked after our beloved mature 12 year old cocker spaniel to be part of her and Colin's home for 3 weeks. All my thanks go out to Lisa for the love and care she gave Tore. During Tore's last week with Lisa, she was unwell with colitis. Lisa did everything to help her, taking her to our Vets, medicating her, and finally cleaning up after her. Tore is now home and doing well thanks to Lisa's excellent care of her. She is on a road to recovery. Many thanks Lisa for everything, and I know Tore is thankful too. I hate leaving Tore, but I am feeling very happy that Lisa will always care and love her. I recommend Paws a While with me to anyone who wants their pets well looked after.

Lisa has been a lifesaver! We got Tinkerbell our lurcher puppy, and 2 weeks later I went into hospital, and was unable to walk for months. She had very little to no training and Lisa was very helpful teaching her the basics while out on her daily walks with our other dog Gilbert. She gradually introduced socialisation walks, so now Tink is well behaved with other dogs and a pleasure to walk. She has also helped when Gilbert had back issues, walking him on lead which isn’t easy with an exuberant lurcher wanting to play! The dogs love her so much that Tink constantly tries to escape and go home with her! She has also done a great “dropping” service when we had to go away for a day, which was a great help. Highly recommended.
Julie-Ann Amos - October 2016
We have quite a nervous Sprocker pup who has stayed with Lisa a few times now. It‘s great to see him jump straight in to the back of her van willingly and he‘s always over the moon to see her. Just did his first overnight without any problems. Highly recommend if you dog needs a little socialisation with other dogs, but would be scared if he had to join a huge pack of dogs for the day. Lisa's own dog is very tolerant of annoying young pups.
Sarah Jones - June 2016
Lisa made our energetic, naughty beagle puppy feel at home while we went to a family party for the day. Lisa is lovely and I know our dog was in safe hands and would have a lovely day.
Alison Breton - June 2016
Once again we booked Paws A While With Me to look after our 3 cats whilst we had a few days away. We knew they were in safe hands and would be happy whilst we were gone but the text updates and photo's were brilliant and we enjoyed reading the report about their antics when we got home! Thanks Lisa as always :-)
J Davies - April 2016
We have used Lisa‘s services for six months. She always turns up at the agreed time, and she is fab with out two dogs, they love her and cause such a fuss when she arrives. Everything is very professional and agreed up front. She obviously loves her "job" and her clients. We would highly recommend her doggy services.
Anne Seymour - February 2016
Lisa remains my "lifeline" in caring for my 3 very elderly cats regularly, giving me the freedom to go away. She‘s always kind, honest, thorough, reliable - don‘t hesitate to book her, she‘s brilliant, so me & my cats are totally happy!
Margy - February 2016
I was looking for someone that would treat my dog as I do, with love, cuddles and the occasional treat and Lisa ticks all those boxes and much more. Lisa house/dog sat during our recent wedding and I felt so at ease leaving my furbaby that has never been kennelled with her. She regularly walks my pup and I‘m very happy with this service-long may it continue! This lady will go the extra mile for you and your pet, no pun intended!
Sarah Blake - February 2016
Just got back after a lovely night out with hubby, first time out together in YEARS!! Heartfelt thanks to Lisa Morris of Paws A While With Me for making our night out possible with her amazing pet sitting of our exceptionally large pack ... we returned to a very calm household (no mean feat at all!) especially a very happy yet unusually calm Zebedee Ziva and little nervous Lollipop went from shaking from head to foot when we left her, to sat on the sofa with Lisa having cuddles when we came back - those who know Lollipop will know how incredible that is! Amazing, can't recommend Lisa highly enough, she definitely has the midas touch!! Thank you so much Lisa!
Michelle Jones of K9 Rescue UK - October 2015
Lisa did a great job of looking after our cat during our two-week holiday. She was very professional at all times with excellent communication. We would definitely recommend her and will use her again
Jonathan and Aly - October 2015
So glad I have found a ‘home from home’ for our Little dog Bridget. She is quite timid but had a lovely time with Lisa. Highly recommended!
Jenny Jones - October 2015
Lisa is great with our two dogs, she just knows !!!!,. Excellent reliable and professional service, she turns up when she says she will and doesn't skimp on walk time, the boys look forward to seeing her, would highly recommend, Thanks Lisa
Anne Seymour - October 2015
Lisa looked after my older cat for the 1st time recently and I felt very reassured leaving him in her very capable hands. She's very caring, and her passion for animals shows throughout as she added lovely touches to the service such as a review of how he was & a photo. Thanks again Lisa!
Tasmin Jane Jenkins - October 2015
There are not enough words to describe the quality of service you will receive from Lisa. I am one of the fussiest, more worried owners of 2 dogs who are my world. Lisa is the only professional. I have ever trusted to care for them and she excelled all expectations. My girls adored her, we had detailed notes and lots of photographs of her time with them and I was more than happy leaving them in her capable hands. Will use her again and shout her name from the rooftops! Thank you!
Eleanor Stanford - October 2015
Lisa was happy to spend time with our two dogs plus our daughters challenging westie. She inspired confidence and we appreciated her notes. Completely brilliant service.
John Stanford - October 2015
We were visiting relatives for a couple of days and had no reservations booking Lisa to come and do home visits for our 3 cats. She met them before we left and sent us brilliant updates during each visit including photos. It worked out cheaper than putting them into a cattery and meant that they could stay in their own home where they are comfortable. It was also great to have someone going into the house and closing/opening curtains and switching lights on and off. We wouldn't hesitate to use Paws A While With Me again.
Jo - August 2015
Staying over Mac our 13 year old Springer was so well looked after he almost didn't want to go home. Was really happy to see Lisa again on his second sleepover. All his old age needs were met and he loved being part of the family.
Laura Liddell - May 2015
Thank you so much for taking care of Oscar for us while we were away. He was one happy kitty!
Lisa Y - May 2015
Would like to say how happy to have Lisa looking after our dogs during the day while I was at work and family away. My westie Lucy is not always the easiest and put my mind at rest knowing she was getting 1st class care, photo updates and notes left. Thank you again Lisa xx
Georgina - May 2015
Lisa looked after my cat when I went away, I was very happy with her service and I would use her again and recommend her to people. She let me know how Cleo was doing when away which was very reassuring as I worry. There was also a daily diary of what Cleo had been up to, which was a nice touch.
Rachael and Cleo - May 2015
Lisa has provided a fantastic service by taking our seven year old rescue dog on daily individual weekday walk. She is reliable and has worked very well with our pet who is nervous around other dogs. It has been evident by his behaviour since Lisa has began walking him that he has been in very good hands with her. I would not hesitate to recommend Lisa a competent and caring dog walker.
Sally K - May 2015
Thank you Lisa for looking after Celtic Cattery, knowing I‘m leaving my precious cargo in good hands, allowed me to have a few hours off and appreciate the fact everything was clean and tidy on my return. First class service xx
Christine Cross - May 2015
When we booked our holiday, we had to find a career to care for our cat, Alfie. Alfie is very much a ”house bound cat“. You understood his needs very well. And when he fell ill you not only took him, to our vets but you acted on our behalf. You gave Alfie time, love and compassion. We thank you very much. We know that Alfie has another friend, and he trusts you. Excellent records. We were so glad that we found you, and do not hesitate to recommend your services to others.
Ruth & Bernie Marks - December 2014
Lisa is a star! My 3 elderly & much loved cats have totally accepted her into their rather pampered lives, due to her calmness, cuddling skills and patience! I‘ve recently needed to call her in a family emergency (by text, not even a phone call!) and she&lsquo's competently & reliably come to my rescue, with no fuss or stress involved - perfect! Regular message updates from home while I‘m away provides superb reassurance every time. Excellent service, I couldn‘t do what I do in my life without her!
Margy (And Bubbles, Goat & April). Coleford. - December 2014
Hi Lisa just a quick note to say a huge thank you for looking after ...poppy it was a huge weight off my mind to know she was in such good hands. Thank you for the updates during your visits and the log at the end - fantastic service.
Jody Lane Mua - December 2014
Our cat is an important member of our family, so finding someone to look after her (and our house) in our absence was an important decision. When we found Paws A While, we were so relieved! Lisa strikes the perfect balance between being highly professional and very personable.
More than the thorough paperwork, Lisa‘s accommodation of all our cat‘s routines and the very competitive rates, what makes Paws A While‘s service stand out is the fantastic communication with us: daily written reports, regular updates by email or text message while we‘re away and even cat selfies to reassure us everything is OK.
We really have nothing but positive feedback about our experience and will be customers of Paws A While for as long as we have pets to be looked after!
Dave and Jen - October 2014
Paws a While has provided myself and the boys - Fraser. Archie , Dudley and young Freddie, with a fantastic service. The boys have been treated to playtime , feeding and some training and I have had peace of mind that they are happy and contented. Lisa provides a service that I simply could not be without and I recommend her highly!!
Tracey- October 2014
Paws a While has “house sat’ and looked after our dogs, one elderly and the other rather nervous, on several occasions and they have received fantastic care. My older dog was ill when we were away and Lisa nursed her superbly, preparing tempting food and making her comfortable. She managed a complex medical routine and provided reports. Amongst all this, my young dog was exercised and played with. Lisa is very organised, trustworthy and reliable.
Keith Roy - October 2014
I was very lucky to find Lisa to look after my shy little Chihuahua fur baby. I went on holiday for a week so I booked Lisa to look after my dog at her house. She came to meet my baby first and go through his likes and dislikes, as well as paperwork. I have never left my dog before so was slightly nervous of the whole situation, but Lisa put me at ease and my Toodles seemed to like her from the minute he met her. Lisa picked Toodles up and took him off to the forest where he had his own amazing holiday full of walks by the river and lots of attention. I got a few text updates to let me know he was ok too. When I came back from holiday Lisa brought Toodles back to me. He seemed relaxed and a lot calmer than he was before his holiday. I would defiantly recommend pawsawhilewithme to anyone who loves their pet as much as I love mine. The rates are good and the love Lisa gives each pet is first rate
G J Kerry - October 2014
We have used Lisa several times to look after our dog and cat whilst we‘ve been away and have been impressed by her professionalism. She takes time to get to know pets and owners and it‘s a nice touch to get texts while you‘re away to reassure you there are no problems. When we came home our cat looked happy and well and the dog was ready to go back with Lisa! It‘s nice to know there‘s someone local and reliable we can call on and we would have no hesitation in recommending Lisa to others.
Clive and Joy - October 2014
It has been so reassuring having a reliable animal sitter whilst I have been away a couple of times recently. Having a tribe of pets, two dogs and three cats can prove problematic at holiday time. This has been especially so as one of my cats, Lulu, has been very poorly. Knowing that Lisa was there to look after her enabled me to relax knowing that Lulu was getting the attention she needed as well as Lisa administering Lulu‘s medication. Having a daily report on return from holiday is helpful too, as you know what has been happening with your furry family members whilst you are away. I would recommend Paws a While With Me to anyone wanting a reliable pet sitting service, as Lisa genuinely cares about the animals she is caring for.
Louisa Dwyer - August 2014
Thankyou very much to Lisa for walking our labrador Pip, often at short notice and with such care and attention to her needs. Thankyou too for the regular homeboarding which she loves - and is almost sad to come home. You run a very caring and very professional service - thanks for all your help.
Hannah - August 2014
Lisa came to visit me and my dog at home, she is a friendly and relaxed person who spent the time getting to know the dog whilst explaining her services and making arrangements to suit me as best as possible. She has been flexible and always been available to do the odd extra day if we have needed it. We have been pleased with the services that Lisa and Paws a While With Me have provided and am grateful for the effort and time Lisa has put in with my dog!
Sandy - August 2014
After moving from Scotland back to the Forest of Dean I was keen to get a pet sitter /dog walker organised for my well loved black labrador Tilly. I happened to see Lisa‘s card in my local vets surgery and decided to give her a ring. Lisa came out to my home to meet myself and Tilly. We discussed my needs and I knew straight away that Lisa would be someone I could trust with my home and my beloved dog.
Lisa walked Tilly for me as arranged while I was at work, she arrived promptly at the arranged time, walked Tilly as agreed for half an hour and then played with her in the garden for another half an hour. Lisa texted me to let me know that all had gone well, which put my mind at rest. When I arrived home each day Tilly was happy and relaxed and Lisa left a note each day to tell me how her walk had gone and how Tilly had been throughout her visit.
I would definitely recommend Lisa for your pets needs and I will not hesitate to use her again.
Jenny - July 2014
Here at Celtic Cattery would like to say a huge thank you to “Paws for a While”, for holding the fort yesterday. Lisa has proved to have a very professional and caring approach at all times. I was at first a little worried about handing over the reigns but straight from the off I knew I had chosen the right person for the job, which is why we had no hesitation in booking Lisa again for a future date. Lisa‘s reputation is growing for the valued person she is and deserves all the success in her new venture.
Celtic Cattery - May 2014
Recently I arranged for Lisa Morris of “Paws for a While” to transport me and my toy poodle Charlie from our hotel to a dog show I was judging at in Lydney and to then to take him for a walk while I was judging. Lisa arrived on time to pick me up and could not have been more helpful. At first, as is usual for Charlie, he was barking when Lisa took him off me and I was a bit anxious that he would not settle, but I need not have worried. Lisa kindly looked after Charlie throughout the day, and took him out again when I was judging a second class. This time Charlie went happily with her. He has obviously found a new friend in Lisa. In the afternoon Lisa then took us back to the station. I have rarely been able to get out and about since my husband‘s stroke made him unable to drive and I so appreciated Lisa making this welcome break possible. I would certainly recommend her and hope to be using her services again in the summer.
Angela Richens - May 2014
I was rather anxious about going on holiday as my trusted Aunt and Uncle always took care of my ageing Lab and my lively shih tzu but they were unable to this time.
But all turned out well, because I found Lisa.
She came to visit before hand, was so friendly, professional, and caring towards my girls, I felt completely at ease leaving them and my home in her capable hands.
Whilst away Lisa sent updates and even a few nice photos. I would recommend her to any one with complete confidence.
Helen - April 2014
Brilliant service from Paws a while with Me, Takes someone organised and capable to take over the running of our kennels whilst we were away, and Lisa handled it with no bother at all. On our return, kennels were immaculate, and all the dogs were happy and well cared for. An invaluable service for us, as we never get away together, but now we know we can call on this service and not worry...... thanks to Lisa at Paws a While with me for a fantastic service!!
Jane Van Soest-SmithGundog Art - February 2014
Bella is our very excitable, 7 month old, labrador retriever and is very much a part of our family. With Christmas fast approaching we began wondering how we were going to be able to visit my husbands family who live in Wales - about a two and a half hour drive away, as we were unable to take Bella with us. Lisa was recommended to us by a friend, as someone who might be able to help. We contacted Lisa and arranged for her to come and visit us (and Bella). The rest, as they say, is history!! Lisa looked after Bella for the 2 days we were away and kept in touch with us all the time. She sent text updates and even sent pictures of Bella so we could see how she was getting on. Bella never had it so good - she was taken on lots of forest walks and met other people and animals too. We could see when we got Bella back that she had been very well looked after, and obviously bonded with Lisa!
We would not hesitate to recommend Lisa to anyone wanting to have their pet(s) looked after while they are away from home. Nothing was too much trouble for Lisa, and she has such a lovely manner. She really is a lovely lady and we will definitely be using her services again. Thanks Lisa!!
Paula - January 2014
We found Lisa through an advert at our local vet. She responded quickly and professionally. Once a time was arranged she came to visit our boys on multiple occasions with us present to confirm that they were comfortable with her - by the last visit I could tell my lads were happy. She was genuinely trustworthy and I felt safe having her in my home with my boys. Thanks for the great service, definitely recommend and will be using her services in the future.
Nuch and Joseph - January 2014
We have no hesitation in asking Lisa back to look after our cats and chickens. She gives a professional service with write-ups each time she comes over. Normally our cats shoot off with strangers but she had a gentle friendly approach. It was also handy having Lisa notice other things such as a leaky overflow pipe, thus keeping an eye on the house as well. Finally I was appreciative of the texts I received, thus reassuring me all the time we were away. We will be back again with more business for her soon.
Karen and Mak - November 2013
Thank you for doing such a brilliant job looking after our two cocker spaniels while we went on holiday for the week. Our dogs were very well cared for and kept active throughout the day. We will definitely use your service again.
Elaine Meek - September 2013
