We have used Pickles Pets to walk our French Bulldog Rupert for the last 4 years. We have not once found their service to be anything short of exceptional, and cannot highly recommend them enough. Rupert goes on group walks 3 times a week with Nicky, and the bond they have is clear to see. The photos she sends of Rupert out on his walks are a great reassurance that he is in good care and having a good walk, not that we’ve ever felt the need to see such proof from Nicky. We trust her and everyone at Pickles Pets completely when Rupert is in their care, and as such we think of Nicky as extended family. Nicky is always personable and friendly, in fact, my 2 girls who are often home when she comes to collect and drop off Rupert, are just as excited to see her as Rupert is. Nicky is professional and extremely reliable, and she’s always been flexible when we have had to cancel walks at short notice due to Rupert’s health. We often say how lucky we feel that we found a local company that is this good just on our doorstep. Finding a local service that is both professional/reliable but also personable can sometimes be a challenge, but Pickles Pets have this balance. Highly recommended!
Pickles Pets offer a truly amazing service. Heimdall has been walked by Nicky since he was 6 months old he just turned five and he utterly adores his ‘aunty Nicky’! His excitement to go walking with Nicky is palpable and he returns home extremely content and tired just perfect! He goes to many different places a number of times he has known a place when we seek out somewhere new to walk and the texts, pictures and videos from Nicky each walk confirm the sheer delight our boy has with her and his pals! We often giggle at the fun he is having and love the fabulous moments Nicky captures. Nicky is professional, reliable, respectful and so loves the animals she cares for. Her use of GPS tracking was a relief to us when Heimdall was younger. Now he would never go out of Nicky’s eye-sight! We would all be lost without her and are so very grateful for the care and love she shows our boy and us. We highly recommend Pickles Pets. You and your dog are also sure to love this incredible service! Thank you Nicky.
Thanks ever so much nicky for looking after all my exotic pets whilst we were away on hols. Made my holiday so much more enjoyable.. Would defo recommend to anybody came home to very happy pets so smiley owner:-)
Nicky had taken great care of my chinchillas, Shawn and Bay. She updated their photos to me every week. Shawn and Bay had made friends with Nicky’s families. I can enjoy my holiday by knowing Shawn and Bay are safe and happy with Nicky. Pickles Pets is amazing.
Nicky has been looking after our dog Wilson since he was a puppy. He loves her! He has the most amazing adventures on his daily walks with her and all his friends, as we can see by the pictures she sends us everyday. We can go to work knowing that he will have a fun day and don’t need to worry about him being bored at home. I fully recommend Nicky and Pickles Pets if you are looking for a dog walker . I don’t know where we would be without her.
Thanks Nicky! You do such a wonderful job of looking after my boys. It really takes the worry out of leaving them when I go away and means they can stay in the comfort of their own home rather than the stress of a cattery. The text message updates are a great touch too!
I would definitely recommend you to anyone looking for pet care services.
Pickles Pets are wonderful. Very professional, flexible and just as animal mad as the owners. Nikki really took the time to get to know my very nervous chihuahua cross. In the beginning he wouldn’t even let someone else put his lead on, now he’s like a new dog. He’s become more social with other dogs and has loads more confidence since walking with Pickles Pets and that’s a testament to how lovely and knowledgeable Nikki is with the dogs. 10/10 service.
Highly recommend Pickles Pets. My dogs absolutely adore Nicky who is one of the kindest people on the planet. She clearly loves her work and is always cheerful, professional and completely reliable. Wonderful service for me and the dogs – thank you Nicky!
This is the first time Nicky has looked after our cat Poppy and fish, and what a great job she has done for us while we had a week’s holiday away. Poppy loved her from the first moment they met. I had absolutely no qualms in leaving Poppy in Nicky’s care. Her genuine love and caring for animals comes shining through. She is such a lovely lady too. It was great to receive Nicky’s texts too informing us of how Poppy was and that there were some new baby fish. The pint of milk she left us for our return was very welcome too; very thoughtful. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Nicky to anyone to look after their pets with complete confidence. I will certainly be booking her again next time we go away. Thank you very much for everything Nicky.
A big thank you for looking after all our pets whilst we were away on holiday. We really appreciated the daily text updates, especially to hear about Joe’s baby fish births!!! We would not hesitate to recommend Pickle Pets to anyone and have already re-booked! Thanks once again, The Murphy Family
Pickles pets are fantastic and the dogs absolutely LOVE NIKKI
I feel happy, secure and safe at letting Nikki take my dogs out as you know and feel that they are in safe hands. It is also great the way she takes photo’s of the dogs on the walk on a regular basis. Nikki is a cheerful, friendly and approachable. Nikki even took the time to call and find out how one of our dogs Sasha was after her operation, she is clearly very passionate about what she does in caring for animals I would not hesitate in recommending Nikki and Pickles pets to anyone
Hi Nicky I have to say I cant thank you enough 2 dogs 2 cats and never been Left before you worked wonders and made my time away peaceful for me I can honestly say to any one that I would always feel safe leaving my pets with you and will definitely be using you again
Thank you so much
We’ve used Nicky for 4 years for cat sitting and Sylvie is always happy to see her. We always come home to a very contented cat and know that the house is in safe hands whilst we’re away.
Nicky has been our trusted dog walker for the past 5 or 6 years. Formerly with our gorgeous boys Teddy and Finley who loved her more than anything. Sadly we lost both boys within six months of each other 18 months ago. They were quickly replaced, but never forgotten by our precious Nellie. Quite simply, Nicky is the best. She is reliable, caring, kind and knowledgeable. Nellie absolutely adores her and so do we. We would highly recommend Pickles Pets and defy anyone to find a better service.
Thank you so much for looking after Molly and Perry. We are now able to have a relaxed holiday knowing they are in such safe hands.
The daily texts were very welcome, and very funny. You are brilliant!
Gillie & John
We can’t fault the service we receive from Nicky at Pickles Pets. She walks our dog on a weekly basis and is caring, considerate and loves our dog Bella who also loves her! I would highly recommend Nicky to anyone looking for someone who is passionate about pets and wants peace of mind that their pet is being well looked after. We wouldn’t be without Nicky!!
My dogs just love Pickle Pets! They are always excited to see Nicky so I know they’re happy and treated well. I have total peace of mind knowing my dogs are in the care of Pickle Pets. Reliable, trustworthy and wonderful walks for my dogs. I would highly recommend their services.
Nicky is our hero! She is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, professional and caring with the animals she cares for, and their owners. Nicky goes above and beyond every single time she takes Dottie out and has been 100% reliable and thoroughly brilliant in the two years she’s been walking Dottie. Dottie clearly loves Nicky and, from the videos & photos Nicky sends, she also clearly loves her walks and play times with all her other doggie friends. I owe Nicky a debt of gratitude because I would not be able to have a dog without the unbelievable support she provides. Thank you Nicky, from Helen & Dottie
Pickles Pets were fantastic. Just after we booked a long weekend away Phyllis, our much beloved lop-eared dwarf rabbit became ill and had to have a major operation. There was only one person that we trusted enough to give Phyllis her medicine and to clean the site of her op while we were away. Nicky collected her, cleaned her and spoilt her with TLC. Phyllis even put on some much needed weight. Thank you so much for going way above and beyond the call of duty. Highly recommended.
Nicky has been cat sitting our boys for a few years now and she’s fantastic. She’s friendly and professional and It’s such a weight off my mind to know that our kitties are being looked after whilst we’re away. We even get photo updates so we can see what they’ve been up to! Nicky is very reliable and the boys love her company, and I love knowing that they’re in safe hands. Would definitely recommend.
Many thanks for the photos of Travis.
You know how much my baby means to me and he is doing so well with you. You will have to put my thanks on your email to others as you are doing a wonderful job, you enjoy your job and this shows in the way the dogs want to go with you and not leave you on their return home. I know with all your experience of Guide dogs and working for Pet Stores gives you such an exceptional back ground for others to be told of, as you care for the dogs as if they were all your own and they are safe in your hands. I would not give a second thought about you taking on any type of animal to either care for or walk.
We were very fortunate that we found Nikki to look after Leeloo. She loves going for walks with her and the gang. This gives us a peace of mind when we are at work, knowing that Leeloo is well looked after. I highly recommend Nikki to anyone who is looking for a dog walker in the Southampton area.
Dear Nicky I would just like to thank you for everything you have done over the past year for Fudge and I.
I knew she was always in safe hands with you and I am extremely grateful. You provide a fantastic service and I would highly recommend you!
Nicky started visiting Sasha our German Shepherd puppy before she was fully vaccinated and allowed out. Sasha loved her lunchtime visits and the company and fun that Nicky provided. It was also reassuring for us to know that she was getting quality time with a familiar face every day. Since Sasha has been able to go out on walks, We particularly like the text updates to let us know how Sasha is and always look forward to our weekly email full of amusing tales and photos from her walks. We would highly recommend Nicky and Pickles Pets to anyone looking for high quality and trustworthy pet care. Nicky always has the animals best interests at heart and has exceeded our expectations on every level.
