What our customers say about us...

In my eyes Chris is the perfect dog walker, mainly because she adores dogs and you can see her passion and care everytime she is with them, but also because she is so reliable and flexible. Many a time, Chris has 'come to the rescue' when I have been stuck in London or my schedule has changed, she has never let me down and has walked Henry in all weathers. She treats every dog like her own and they all clearly adore her. I would count on one hand how many people I would trust to look after Henry with his medical condition and Chris is top of that list!

Chris has been looking after my elderly, overweight diabetic cat (who requires twice daily injections) on a regular basis for 18 months now, and has proven to be a reliable and trustworthy person who takes her responsibilities seriously. I would have no hesitation in recommending City Cats & Dogs. Nick LS8

Chris has been walking my dog Peanut for 4 years. She is punctual, reliable and flexible and I would be happy to recommend her dog walking services. Peanut loves going on walks with her and the other dogs and always comes home tired out, so I know he's had a good run around. Peanut has also stayed overnight at Chris' house on a number of occasions while I've been on holiday. He loved every minute. Chris is always friendly and loves all of the dogs as if they are her own.

Chris, of City Cats and Dogs, has been our trusted, reliable cat sitter for many years. Our Persian cat Teddy requires, (apart from the obligatory cuddles) grooming, eyes cleaning and the bathroom tap turning on for fresh water! Chris has never let us down and we can relax knowing Teddy is in the good hands of someone who really loves him, while we are away. A bonus is the care of the house – bins put out, post picked up and plants watered. Wouldn’t use anyone else.  Sue & Mike (and Teddy) LS17
Whenever we go away we can always rely on Chris to come and look after our 'baby' so she doesn't have to go through the trauma of going to the cattery and she's always a happy cat when we get home. Jackie and George LS12
Chris from "City Cats And Dogs" has been my valued dog walker for the past 5 years. Throughout this time she's been totally reliable, professional and trustworthy. She's really flexible regarding dates and can usually accommodate last minute requests to change arrangements, which I've found really helpful when juggling work and family commitments. I've walked with Chris and her pack on a couple of occasions and have witnessed first hand her ability to handle the dogs in her care. My dogs are always returned from their walk safe, happy and above all tired! I can honestly say that I've no hesitation in recommending Chris and the services of "City Cats And Dogs".

We have known Chris Tarpey for several years and really value the reliable, cheerful, friendly service she provides for our two cats. We would thoroughly recommend her. M from Roundhay

Chris has been looking after our cats when we go away for several years now. She is 100% reliable and can even come at really short notice. Our cats have special dietary needs and we know that she will always follow our instructions to the letter. She really has their welfare at heart - when Dru didn't arrive for her tea one day Chris launched a full scale search enlisting help from our neighbours and tracked her down to a locked garage, then through further detective work managed to contact the owners of the garage who were not at home to come let her out. We would recommend Chris to anyone wanting peace of mind when leaving their pet.

It is wonderful having Chris to look after my menagerie and house when I am away, such a relief to know all are in very safe hands. Thank you Chris for your care flexibility and excellent service. Mandy in Oakwood

Murphy my 3 year old Border Collie has been going on walks with Chris for nearly a now. Murphy is very energetic and I have the peace of mind of knowing he gets the required exercise he needs every day while I'm working.  Chris has never let me down and is always there to help out if I have last minute plans. I know he's been cared for by the best. Caroline Kirkstall 
Chris has been walking my dog for almost 7 years. She is completely reliable and I feel lucky to have found someone I trust completely with my dog. She is very flexible making it possible for me to be more flexible at work without worrying about my dog. I have also boarded my dog overnight and he loved going. I don't know what we'd do without her. Karen LS13
I can honestly say that Chris is the only person apart from family with whom I would entrust Peg, now a very elderly dog with chronic health problems. Diane, John and Peggy.
Thank you so much for taking such good care of our 2 cats Floyd and Thomas. Also it was so nice to come home to a lovely clean house, watered plants and 2 very contented cats - in fact they were so well looked after I'm not sure they even missed us! Would trust you anytime and recommend you to anyone. Sure Floyd and Thomas will look forward to seeing you on our next hols. Rita LS28
Chris has been taking care of the cats in our family for some years now. Until recently, we had 2 rather elderly tabby cats, one of whom is now sadly no longer with us. In her last couple of years, she required a daily dose of 2 tablets - a task that was never much fun for her or us!!! Leaving her at home when we went on holiday was only made possible because of Chris's expertise. We knew we could trust her to administer medication and offer plenty of TLC along with it. Chris continues to look after our remaining cat when we go away, and reliably ensures home security by leaving lights on at night and closing curtains. An invaluable service that gives us peace of mind. Louise & Simon LS17
