Testimonials - Animal Antics

Alan and his close knit team are absolutely superb with animals. Apart from me (haha) I equate Alan as the island's only true dog whisperer. You are certainly leaving your fur baby/pet in supremely safe hands. Your dog will think it is going on holiday. Very very highly recommended.

Five stars. We have two happy English Setters here, after a week with Alan.

My dogs are always pleased to see Sally and Alan. They are flexible and reliable and I don't hesitate to recommend their services.

We have been using Animal Antics for two years now and would highly recommend them to anyone. We always find Alan and the team to be trustworthy, flexible, reliable and above all put your dog's interest first. The relationship and bond between Woody and their staff is fantastic. As always in Guernsey, you can't go anywhere without someone knowing you (or your dog!) and on numerous occasions people have commented that they've seen Woody out with Animal Antics obviously enjoying himself and being well cared for on a long walk. Above all a massive thank you to Claire for making Woody's walks so special for him.

"I think you provide a very good service but also add a different element with your news and communication. They are much appreciated."

"When you leave your precious animals and have to go away, whether for work or holidays, it is so important to know that they are happy and safe.  If you are worried about their welfare then this can cause stress and guilt, (yes guilt!) which distracts from work or can spoil a lovely holiday.  When Claire comes to stay I can relax and go away in the knowledge that my dogs are contented and well cared for.  They are so chilled when I return that it's an easy transition of routine - it's almost as though they didn't notice I had been away.  An additional bonus is that the house, and the dogs, are always immaculate - laundry done, bins and dishwasher empty and no smelly kennel dogs! Fantastic service and a real godsend, thanks Animal Antics :-)"

"I can't thank Alan enough. He is very knowledgeable and I was pleased to find someone that I would trust with my dog. He has been so helpful in finding me someone to dog-sit at the eleventh hour when I have needed to go off-island. I would thoroughly recommend him."

"I would highly recommend Animal Antics for your pets. Alan is brilliant with all animals and is completely reliable,caring and knowledgeable.Whether 'living in' to dog-sit or daily house visits to feed and look after cats, chickens, sheep, etc, Animal Antics provide a fantastic service"

"Alan has walked our dog Jack since he was very young and Jack took to Alan immediately. It was evident that Alan went above and beyond in his level of service and he has been a big part of Jack’s training over the last 2 years.  At short notice, Alan has always been able to accommodate our needs and the holiday cover is great as Jack remains in his own surroundings and his usual routine whilst we are away.  We are due to leave Guernsey soon but we are really appreciative of all that Alan, Ali and Claire have done for Jack and are sure that he is really going to miss them.  We already have and will continue, to recommend Animal Antics to anyone."

"Our dogs are very important to us which is why we opt for live in care when we're away, so that they can be looked after in their own home. It's less stress for them and us, as we know that they will be cared for by Animal Antics. The affection the dogs have for their 'carers' is evident when we bump into them on the beach and the dogs recognise them before we do and run up to say hello!"

"I can't recommend Animal Antics highly enough. I have two Cocker Spaniels who were only 2 years old when I was recommended to use Animal Antics. I have never put my dogs in kennels and having tried other kinds of care had come to the conclusion that the only way to do a job well was to do it yourself. However, having met Alan and Claire and used them several times, all my problems are solved. When I return from a trip both dogs are happy and relaxed and have obviously been well looked after. Using Animal Antics means someone is in the house too, so no worries on that front either. A very friendly, efficient company that does an amazing job. Well done Alan and thank you Claire. Best wishes for your continued success."

"We have used Animal Antics' services on several occasions over a period of years and have never been disappointed. From providing holiday care for an elderly and infirm cat, to dog-walking services for Irish wolfhounds, to turning out promptly and willingly to give an emergency 'lift' (physical or transport) to the vet - they have repeatedly shown themselves to be responsible, reliable, resourceful - and really nice people."
Anne and Paul Vaudin

"Alan- our flexible friend :) He walks, feeds, taxis, and baby-sits for us. He is trustworthy and reliable, he can respond at short notice and thinks he is cool. He cares about us and we care too."
