Feedback For Paws A While With Me
Lisa does a fantastic job at caring for our cats whilst we are away, very reliable and trustworthy. They are always content when we come home rather than being anxious and scared like they were when they used to go to the cattery.
H M R - September 2018
I cannot rate Lisa highly enough. I have an elderly German Shepherd (12 1/2) and a Labrador. As such I use Lisa’s pop in service as they need a comfort break if our working pattern falls that they are going to be left alone for a period of time.
Lisa does so much more than ‘pop in’ To them. She plays scent games, gives them fuss, she will give medication and feed them if needed which is often the case with the GSD which takes the worry away for me.
They absolutely love her. She is very kind, caring and capable. I have often had to ask at short notice due to a change in circumstances and she has always fitted us in.

Fortunately we found Lisa when we relocated to the forest 4 months ago. Due to different working hours the doggies need some extra attention sometimes, it's worked out brilliantly, they have walks and pop in visits depending on work hours. They've also had home boarding when we've been away.
Highly recommended, it's been excellent and saved us a lot of stress so far living In the forest!
Thank you so much Lisa
C V C - September 2018
Thank you so much lisa you have helped me out a few times sometimes at short notice.
I never have to worry as I know my little Charlie is safe & will always be looked after .
It's lovely leaving her & knowing she is happy & loves the family. It's great having updates how she is also whilst we are away via pictures & messages.
She is treated the same as if she where at home. Sometimes I go to pick her up & she doesn't want to leave.
Charlie loves Aunty lisa. & enjoys good walks a day. A beautiful garden which is safe to wander in. & lisa treats them all so very special. I would highly recommend them.

Such a professional lady and our two labs love her. Takes all the worry about leaving dogs to long alone. Thankyou lisa. X
D H - September 2018
Lisa has looked after our German Shepherd several times now who loves it there. She keeps us up to date with news and pictures while we're away. Our GSD always comes back tired having enjoyed socialising with other dogs, exploring her lovely garden (plenty big enough to have a good run around in) and having many adventures around the forest.
Lisa has been very professional and always checks documentation is up to date, which is very reassuring.
R S - September 2018
Millie loved her long weekend with Lisa...in fact I'm sure she would of stayed given the chance. A real home from home and it's clearly evident how much Lisa cares about all the animals she looks after. The regular photos and videos are a bonus ...we will definitely use her again.. x
F M - September 2018
I cannot thank Lisa enough , my dog Tess came back to us happy and content ! Lisa is a very careing person who I felt very confident leaving my dog with her , many thanks
K A - September 2018
Lisa looked after our kitten Daisy for a week and we couldn’t have asked for better service. Daisy was fussed and played with twice a day and we received lots of lovely photos and updates while we were away. Lisa gave us real peace of mind, fantastic experience and we will definitely book again!
H P - September 2018
Fantastic service. I was very nervous about leaving my two cats for a week, but Lisa made me feel comfortable and confident that everything would be taken care of. We received lots of lovely photos of our boys, which really helped us to relax and enjoy our time away.
Normally, when we go away and family take care of them, we return home to two stroppy cats, but this time there was none of that. Our boys were happy to see us and didn't punish us too badly.
Thankyou Lisa x
G S - September 2018
Complete peace of mind. We were worried about leaving our two indoor cats, who are quite nervous and used to lots of attention, luckily we found Lisa or we may not have gone away at all. The regular updates and photos assured us that they were happy and contented, both have different needs and personalities but were catered for well. When we returned they were pleased to see us and no sulking! Thinking of booking another break, as long as Lisa is able to offer her services!
K D - September 2018
My two boys Beau and Joe have just come back from Paws A While and they seem all the better for it. Two full days and an overnight stay in lovely beds and comfy settees. I can tell they thoroughly enjoyed their walks, treats, spoilt time, play time with Colin, Lily and Scooby. We will be back for sure as it was definitely a home from home experience.
S T - September 2018
My dog Kilt had her second stay with Lisa a couple of weeks ago and seemed very happy there. Real home from home. She’s almost 11 and loves her bed. She has several throughout our house and obviously enjoyed stealing Colin’s! Lovely forest walks and socialisation with other friendly dogs. Lisa has a very professional and caring approach.
B F - September 2018
What can we say?! This was Mabel’s first time away from us. She has just turned one and Lisa was amazing with her. We had lots of lovely updates on how Mabel was settling in (Lisa checked we were happy to have them while on holiday which of course we were)
Lisa made such an effort with Mabel while she stayed with her, they went on the most beautiful walks and Lisa allowed her to enjoy the beauty of the forest off the lead and explore every muddy puddle there was to find : ) It was so reassuring to see Mabel so relaxed and having so much fun while we were away! I would definitely recommend Lisa and would have no worries at all sending Mabel back for another holiday (I think she had just as much fun as we did or perhaps maybe more : ) ) Thank you Lisa!
B J - September 2018
I can’t thank Lisa enough for how well was looked after our puppy (read that as a 37kg just over a year old cheeky monster:). Bailey had a brilliant time and came home all happy and relaxed.
Thank you, Lisa, very very much for all your patience with him and the lovely updates. You made our weekend away so much less stressful. Thank you XX
L M - September 2018
Can’t thank you enough for looking after Alfie so well for us while we were away, he certainly was a spoilt pooch!! Kept up to date while we were away which is amazing was great to know that Alfie was being good and having a fantastic time without us!! Fantastic A+ service highly recommended xx
C M-K - September 2018
A massive Thank you to Lisa for looking after roxy she has come home one happy girl. Once again all the updates have been amazing and puts my mind at rest knowing she is being well looked after.
J R - September 2018
Skye, our beautiful springer spaniel absolutely adores Lisa and gets so excited for her walks. Recently Skye wasn't very well and unable to come on holiday with us - Lisa stepped in at short notice walking her everyday for us and administering ear drops on their return - it was peace of mind to know she is so well looked after - really cannot recommend enough xxx
Our springer absolutely loves Lisa she gets so excited every time she arrives - even when she drops the key back Skye will sit at the front door waiting to be taken out!!! Lisa always steps in at short notice and takes such brilliant care of our little girl :)highly recommended A++++
L L R - September 2018
Lisa looked after our spaniel whilst we went on holiday. Unfortunately a few days before we were due to travel our dog sadly fractured her leg. We were obviously devastated our little girl, but Lisa still agreed to board her in her home, following the guidance from our vet and we were still able to go on our annual holiday. We can’t thank Lisa enough for her kindness and excellent care. We left feeling that our girl was in safe hands and we received regular updates and photos of our dog’s progress throughout her stay, which helped to put our minds at rest After 10 days away we came home to a very happy little dog, who had been spoilt rotten with lots of fuss and attention and had made fantastic progress with her healing. I can’t recommend ‘Paws a While with me’ enough and we will definitely be letting our dog enjoy another holiday with Lisa in the future. Thanks Lisa - you’re an absolute star!
M L - September 2018
Archie enjoyed his first stay with Lisa. We appreciated the pre homestay familiarisation which put our minds at rest before his initial stay. He came home as if he had not been away and unlike his previous stays in Kennels had a good voice....we believe he had a great time and his recall and social skills were far improved after his visit. We have already booked his next stay!! THANK YOU LISA
K - January 2018
We booked Lisa to look after our two dogs back in September for our wedding. Lisa really put us at ease about leaving our dogs and they had a wonderful stay with her. When we went to collect them they seemed really happy and content. We received messages and pictures whilst we were away, showing us what a lovely time they were having. We got married at Clearwell Castle and Lisa very kindly brought the dogs to us on the wedding day (they even got wedding ribbon on the van!). This really helped to make our wedding day EXTRA special and allowed us to get some family pictures - how would these be complete without our wonderful fluffs! Lisa went above and beyond to make our day special and to take the stress out of us leaving them - top sitter <3 Bruno and Trixie give you 5 stars xxx
C T - November 2017
Thank you so much for looking after our beagle girls for us again. They love coming over to stay with you and obviously feel very much at home. We know that they are in safe hands and are being loved and cared for as much as they are at home. Lisa you’re the best xx
E W - October 2017
An amazing service. I would highly recommended Lisa' s home boarding. She was very patient with Finn and worked with us to ensure his exercise regime was followed.Lisa put us totally at ease from the initial visit and provided regular updates on Finn throughout his stay,which we loved and thoroughly appreciated. Home boarding has helped Finns socialization.Thank you once again for letting Finn share you home. We will be back if you'll have us.
V T - September 2017
Lisa looked after our menagerie of animals for us whilst we were away, as well as our house. She's great she came in twice a day fed and made a fuss of our cats, fed the chickens and put them to bed, sorted our post out and watered our plants. She also home-boarded our Cockerpoo puppy. The updates on facebook were great as we could check in on him and see he was having a fab time with his puppy and doggy friends. Would Highly recommend her service.
A M - September 2017
Lisa looked after our cat Emily for the first time this year. Emily is very shy and doesn't let strangest to touch her. However, she obviously loves Lisa. She was more relaxed and happy after we came back than she usually is. She was obviously pampered. She was fed, watered, brushed and entertained. Lisa came to see her everyday. I am really grateful to Lisa for looking after our Emily so well. I would like to book her for the next year if possible. Highly recommended.
O S - September 2017
I cannot recommend Lisa highly enough. She looked after our puppy milo for 10 days as if he were her own. Such a kind and compassionate lady who is passionate about her job. We are so very grateful to Lisa and her husband for all they did. The pictures and updates that lisa provided us with whilst we were away were really thoughtful and it was great to see that milo was having a great holiday too! THANK YOU SO MUCH!! Xxx
K D - August 2017
A fantastic service. Highly recommended. I was totally put at ease from the initial visit and introuction to the reports of her behaviour I come back to. I know she's not the easiest but Lisa takes it all in her stride. Thank you for making each time I have to leave her a stress free experience.
S P - July 2017
I haven't left my cat with anyone for 6 years as he is a very timid puss and doesnt really like anyone but me. He was fine with Lisa popping in twice a day to feed him, I was amazed to hear that he had allowed her to play with him and stroke him, Marley just doesn't let strangers touch him. He also ate well which was great as he did not the last time I left him. Lisa certainly has a magic touch where animals are concerned, and I strongly recommend her services. I will certainly have her to look after Marley again next time I go away. Lisa was recommended to me by my daughter who often leaves her dog in Lisa's very capable hands. Many many thanks Lisa for looking after Marley so well.
V L - July 2017
Can't sing your praises highly enough ....... purrfect !
B R - April 2017
I'm so glad to have found Lisa! She is patient, kind, calm, and will always do her very best for the pets in her care. Cannot recommend her enough.
E C - April 2017
Lisa and her small business, Paws with Me is a gem to be found in the Forest of Dean. My first meeting with Lisa regarding having our puppy Coco, a cockapoo for home boarding made me feel totally at ease in the knowledge that Coco would be wonderfully looked after and made to feel like one of the Family. Lots of wonderful walks on the doorstep, a safe garden to explore not to mention love and cuddles when required. Our trip abroad in October was made all the happier when photos were posted on the internet of Coco enjoying her adventures as we enjoyed ours. I would have no hesitation in recommending Lisa's Home Boarding to anyone as being a safe, caring and perfect place for any dog to stay and feel Lisa very much deserves to be considered for a Business Award given he wonderful service she provides for Pet owners.
S J - March 2017
Lisa has been looking after our two cats now with daily feeding visits for nearly two years, sometimes just for a couple of days, sometimes for one or two weeks at a time. She is extremely efficient, friendly and professional. We have total confidence that Noah and Finn will be cared for very thoroughly and given plenty of attention and affection. Leaving cats in their own environment when you have to go away seems so much kinder, and with Lisa on hand this is undoubtedly the best choice for us. We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Lisa and the excellent Paws a While service.
L M - March 2017
We have a fabulous cat called Elfreda Beetle, aged 11 she is a rescue cat we have now had for 3 years. She is our first female cat and wow what a difference - she made it very clear at an early stage that catteries were not her thing. What to do? New to the area I resorted to the internet and followed my instincts which led me to Lisa's website 'Paws a While with Me' where I read about her great professional experience and the wonderfully complimentary and warm references. Elfreda Beetle and Lisa met at our home and the decision was made, one of our finest! Lisa has now looked after EB five or six times from a few days to three weeks. She is professional, reliable, warm and delightful, she spends time with EB, plays with her and ensures her varied and ever changing menu requests are catered for ( yes EB is a spoilt cat). We now come home to a happy, contented and well cared for cat and have no concerns while we are away except that we miss her!We would recommend Lisa Morris and Paws a While with Me to anyone in the sure knowledge that the service provided is excellent in every respect.
M and J P - February 2017
I would like to say that we feel so lucky to have found you to look after our cats and chickens.One of concerns moving to a new area was finding someone we felt truly comfortable with but as soon as I met you I knew you were perfect to look after our gang.
Since then you have looked after the gang numerous times and have been fantastic. The care and attention you give to each animal is great and we can go away knowing they are not only being looked after but truly cared for.
The extra touches like sending photos is so nice and you contact us with any concerns or advice.It is always lovely coming home knowing that the house has not been sat empty and that our post has been moved and that there will be a lovely message from you on the black board.
The reports you write are very comprehensive and gives us peace of mind as to how the gang have all been whilst we have been away.
Going away on holiday is even more of a pleasure now knowing that the gang are in your very safe and caring hands! Thank you for all you support and help :-)
I M - February 2017
It was such a relief knowing that our Rosie was in good hands. She obviously had a lot of fun and Lisa took great care of her! Thank you!!
D B - February 2017
I would just like to say how much I value Lisa Morris for her wonderful doggy skills! She has looked after our old dog and our pug with equal attention. I would recommend her to anyone.
C S - February 2017
Lisa has looked after my energetic beagle Puppy for daycare and walks while we have been away. We had an initial meeting at Lisa's house and then he went for daycare, which he really enjoyed. She has also come to our house and walked him on a daily basis.
Lisa provides a reliable, high quality service which my dog loves. She is careful to get all the details right, not walk him off the lead with our say so and he is happy in her care. We can go away knowing he is well looked after.
We would always recommend Lisa for this service at her home or yours.
A B Director Forest Hills Golf Club - February 2017
Always been delighted with Lisa's work. Knowing that our 3 cats get love, fuss and even play time with Lisa when she visits makes us go away on holiday without any worrying. Not only do the visits work out cheaper than our 3 going into a cattery, it also means our house is being opened, checked and even curtains and lights being altered. Our cats love Lisa to bits and we're so pleased to use her services. :-)
J D - Forest Traders - February 2017
I am an incredibly fussy pet owner and having three dogs who all need such different care I have never before trusted anyone outside family and close friends to look after them in my absence. Lisa is fabulous. She immediately puts you and your own at ease. She is happy to chat to you about your Pets needs and works around them and you. Her notes and updates set your mind at rest too. She's wonderful with all of my dogs and I trust her implicitly. Couldn't recommend Paws a while with me highly enough.
E S - Owner/Groomer Little Black Dog Salon - February 2017
My Tibetan Terrier, Bentley , stayed with Lisa and is looking forward to going for another holiday. He made himself at home on his first visit and had lovely long walks. Lisa kept me posted on how he was getting on. Bentley got on so well with Lisa's dog Colin and he really did look happy and well on the pics Lisa sent and when I collected him. I have recommended Lisa to dog owners I know and I wish her all the best as the business grows. Well done Lisa (and Colin)!
C B - February 2017
Lisa is brilliant! She is professional and friendly and I had no concerns about leaving our cats in her care. The daily pop in visits suit our needs perfectly. Lisa took great care of the cats, bringing them treats and toys every day. She posted pictures and videos on Facebook so I could see how they were, and left a report card for me to read when I got home. I won't hesitate to ask Lisa for pop in visits next time we go away, and I would definitely recommend her.
K F - February 2017
Lisa has done a fantastic job looking after Paddington, so much so that he looks forward to his visits there and often doesn't want to come home! Paddington is completely "at home" with Lisa and always has an amazing time being walked in the Forest. Additionally staying with other dogs has really helped him in socialising, he is now much calmer and happier when he meets other dogs while out on walks with us. Lisa is 100% reliable and works hard to keep all her clients (4 legs and 2) happy and confident. Thanks Lisa.
N, C and P - January 2017
We had previously had other arrangements for our rescue dog Bentley which I just didn't feel comfortable when we came back off our hols. So I looked around on the internet and found Paws a While With Me. Lisa came to visit us at our home Bentley liked Lisa and Lisa liked Bentley. We done a trail for the day back in November 2015 and everything went great. Since then we have booked Lisa for our main summer holiday and Bentley does doggy day care. I feel so happy that Bentley is in an homely environment and I cannot thank Lisa enough as she accommodates your pets needs and I know he is loved and looked after. When he is dropped for daycare he runs straight in to the house and doesn't look back at us! I cannot recommend Lisa enough.
L C - January 2017
We have just returned from a week in Snowdonia and Lisa has provided a first class service looking after our 4 rescue rabbits, providing them with a clean environment, fresh food and water and play every day. They all look very happy on our return. Thank you Lisa. A very dependable and professional service :-)
J C - October 2016
Lisa is the most compassionate, lovely person you could have to look after your dog. Coco has been there for two weeks and we never once worried that she would be unhappy, many photos and updates from Lisa assured us that Coco had really had become part of their family and was socialising well Colin, Lisa's own dog -. We would highly recommend Lisa she is a very caring person who obviously adores animals especially the ones she has in her care
S J - October 2016
Bella (our cocker spaniel) loves Lisa and so do we. We'd previously used a kennels but are so much happier knowing she is in Lisa's home when we are away. As a young rescue dog, the socialisation with Colin and the other dogs is brilliant for her. When I had knee surgery, Lisa also walked Bella daily. Lisa really is a god send! I don't think we will be going back to using a kennels.
H F - Tudor Farmhouse, Clearwell - October 2016
thank you lisa,i can go away with peace of mind,knowing my pet cat is in the best of care,wonderful job lisa.will not hesitate to use your services again
Y B - 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
L W - 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
R G - October 2016
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! :)
R S - 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.
L L R - 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.
B B - October 2016
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.
J-A A - 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.
S J - 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.
A B - 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 D - 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.
A S - 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!
M - 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!
S B - 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!
M J 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
J and A - 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!
J J - 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
A S - 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!
T J J - 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!
E S - 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.
J S - 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.
J - 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.
L L - May 2015
Thank you so much for taking care of Oscar for us while we were away. He was one happy kitty!
L 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
G - 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.
R and C - 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.
S 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
C C - 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.
R & B M - 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!

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.

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!

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!!

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.

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

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.

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.

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.
H - 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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!!

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!!

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.
N and J - 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.

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.
