'Excellent, reliable, trustworthy and professional. Malene from Love Dogs provides a really personal service, she looked after our Lilly while we were at work and Lilly absolutely loved spending time with her. When I worked from home, I would still keep the routine and Lilly would wait at the front door around the time Malene would come, she was always so excited to see her! Malene has an incredible connection with dogs which made me feel instantly at ease leaving Lilly in her care. She was very perceptive to Lilly’s needs and really helped to develop her socialisation and guided us in the right direction with her puling on the lead. She was also really accommodating with our ever changing schedules, and 100% reliable, she never let us down once in over a year of hiring her. In fact I can’t remember her ever saying no to anytime we asked her to help out. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending her, she always went above and beyond, even recommending specific products that would suit Lilly’s needs! I just wish she could still walk Lilly, but now we’ve moved away it just isn’t practical, maybe we should move back!'

'Malene is truly passionate about dogs. She is calm, confident and very patient, adjusting her walks to the dog's temperament and taking time in assessing the dog's needs. Malene also offers
some training, which makes her walk more fun and stimulating and Henry - my adorable staffy - felt at ease with her straight away: I love watching his enthusiasm when they go for a walk together.
I also appreciate that Love Dogs offers Saturday walks and dog sitting, extremely helpful options that have already made my life easier, so would wholeheartedly recommend Malene.'

'Malene has been a completely efficient and trustworthy dog walker, walking ‘ Lili the spaniel’ over the last 12 months and has proved herself to be both flexible and reliable. She has maneuvered both the vagaries of our house and dog – a rather nervous spaniel. I have no hesitation in recommending her to others, and have! She is also an excellent communicator!'

'Malene has taken Archie out every weekday for us for over a year now. He seems to know when she is coming and is waiting for her with a wagging tail. He is a very lively Cairn Terrier with a
habit of chasing aeroplanes, white vans and motorbikes so is a handful to walk to the park. Malene is very kind and gentle with him and insists his behaviour will improve. He has to be on the
lead all the time so needs a good walk. He comes back happy and excited rushing around telling us he has had a good time!'
'I can thoroughly recommend Malene as a dog walker/ carer/ handler/ whisperer.'
A. McGeoch, Herne Hill
'Malene has been walking our Welsh Terrier since October 2015 as our dog walker of many years moved away. She has been totally reliable, conscientious and caring and the dog has happily set off with her. She has been flexible when I needed to change the days at short notice. I am happy to recommend her.'
J. Evanson, Herne Hill
'When I had to go back to full time employment, I was a bit nervous about who I could trust with looking after my dog Marley during the week, but Malene has been wonderful and super helpful with calming both our nerves. Marley has grown quite fond of her, and she's never let us down. Thank you for all your help!'
