I have known Clare for the last 6 years, during which time Clare and her daughter have kept their ponies with me.

Clare has always proved herself to be incredibly honest, genuine and reliable with a great sense and knowledge of animals.

Whilst we have been away I have left Clare in charge of my animals (dogs, chickens, horses) and they have been looked after beautifully with real care and attention.

Clare is incredibly conscientious and I would recommend her ‘Pet Care’ to anyone wanting to leave their animals in the care of someone they can genuinely trust to do an excellent job.

Clare, of New Forest Pet Care takes my dog for a walk each week and I have been particularly impressed by the personal service that is given.

If she is taking the dog in the car, there is a crate for my dog to travel in, so I know that she is safe. When introducing my puppy to Clare, I was able to walk with her and was reassured by the way my dog responded to commands and was given the occasional “treat” for good behaviour.

I am happy that when my dog is with her, she is in confident, capable hands and has the sort of care that I would give.

Also, New Forest Pet Care has looked after my guinea pigs and rabbit during holidays, reliably calling at my house to check that food and water is available.

During her visit to find out what was required during my absence, Clare’s attention to detail and her concern that she knew exactly the routines that the animals are familiar with, was very reassuring.

New Forest Pet Care offers a really professional and personal service and I am delighted to recommend them.

We wanted to thank you so very much for all the love and care which you gave Billy over the Christmas Period.

After Billy became blind last March, he had a great deal to get used to but he has managed so well and we didn’t want to put him into a new environment, like a cattery, especially in the Winter time too.

He had the best of all worlds, his own warm home, three visits a day from his new ‘Auntie’ who fed him, talked to him and gave him pills and his cuddles. We were able to leave him, confident in the knowledge that he was in good hands.

I can’t thank you enough and would recommend your services to anyone enquiring.

Considering Ozzy is such a nervous dog, I was amazed at how quickly he became comfortable in Clare’s company.

Not only is Clare very calm and patient but, it is obvious that she has a love of animals, and is very caring around them. Clare has also been amazingly flexible with regards to holidays and short notice cancellations.

As I start my Maternity Leave I would like to say thank you so much Clare, Ozzy is really going to miss you.

A big thanks to Clare for looking after our old, much-loved golden retriever, Timber.

On various occasions in the past year and usually at very short notice, we have asked her to dog-sit. She has always obliged, cheerfully adapting her schedule to fit us in.

Because of Clare’s services we are able to organize day-trips here and there (we are both retired). We know that while we are out, Timber will get her walk, her food and what’s more – lots of love and cuddles!

We were delighted to find New Forest Pet Care’s home visiting service. Clare is so reliable and conscientious – we can go away for the weekend or a family holiday knowing that Pete, our ferret, is getting daily care and attention in the environment that is familiar and safe for him.

Our dog Millie adores her weekly walks with Clare and it’s always lovely to get a little note to say which of her canine friends she has played with and where they have been walked on the day.

Finding someone trustworthy and reliable to care for your dog and have keys to your house is a big decision. We know Millie is extremely well cared for and our house is in safe hands and as such we cannot recommend Clare highly enough.

Having moved to Ringwood a year ago I wanted to find a dog walker for our Cavapoo, Bella but most of all someone who is a true dog lover. I met many dog walkers whilst out walking Bella, including Clare from New Forest Pet Care. There was something about Clare so I contacted her and she came around to visit us in our home. Straight away I found Clare to be personable, professional and interacted with Bella in a caring and calm way. Clare is a real animal lover and takes the responsibility of looking after Bella seriously, I know she is also trained in First Aid for dogs.

Bella is always so excited when Clare comes (twice a week) and it is wonderful to know that Bella is being walked with someone who cares for her as much as we do. I don’t have to worry about Bella when she is with Clare; Bella is secured in a crate whilst in the car and gets to explore all the wonderful areas of the New Forest, not to mention the socialisation she gets with her doggie pals.

If you are looking for complete peace of mind in relation to the care of your pet then I would highly recommend Clare; she is always reliable and flexible if we need to change days and I have complete trust in her not just with Bella but when she comes into our home, to collect/drop Bella off.

Clare has looked after our pets on a number of occasions and we have always come home to find 2 very contented cats and 2 happy rabbits.

She has always been flexible and very good when asked for help at short notice. I feel relaxed knowing that the cats are able to continue their routine on a daily basis.

She is dependable, trustworthy and always very cheerful. I would have no hesitation in recommending Clare’s pet services.

Clare was recommended by a friend and she has looked after Charlie the cat twice for periods of 2 weeks each time. She comes to our house twice each day so he remains familiar with his surroundings. Clare is delightful and we trust her completely to look after him. We will continue to use Clare and would thoroughly recommend her.

New Forest Pet Care has provided outstanding service in caring for our dog several times a year, every year, for the last five years.

Clare is very trustworthy and caring, providing a true home from home so that our pet has a holiday too. I would thoroughly recommend Clare to everyone who wants to be assured that when they are away their pet is receiving the best care .

Our springer Tiggy, is very dear to us and hence we need to be certain that when we go away she is loved and looked after just as well as she is at home. We have complete confidence in Clare to give her that home away from home. We cannot imagine anyone giving her the attention that Clare showers on her; she is totally dependable and professional .

At the Ellingham Show a couple of year’s ago we were in one of the marquees when Tiggy started to pull at the lead; she had heard Clare’s voice from over the other side and was determined to go and say “hello” – this just emphasised to us that Tiggy not only liked Clare but saw her as an extension to our family.

I have been using Clare from New Forest Pet Care for 3 – 4 years. I’ve always found her to be a very warm and nice person. I absolutely trust her to look after my pets and she’s made a terrific job in the time I’ve been using her.

When I get back from my holiday I know that my cats are going to be relaxed and happy in their own home, having had the benefit of Clare’s visits.

Clare came recommended to us a few years ago, and although we have not had to call on her often, each time we need her, she is there for us with no hesitation. It is lovely to be able to go away knowing our cat is safe and in loving hands.

Always cheerful and helpful, we would definitely recommend Clare’s Pet Care Services.

I would recommend Clare Swyer to anyone who needs reliable and safe daycare or holiday cover for their horses/ponies.

My two ponies have been lucky enough to have Clare look after them whilst I’ve been away on a number of occasions.

She is calm, organised, thorough and caring, and is meticulous in the management of my small yard. Clare is highly professional and offers an insured service, – she also looks after my small flock of hens too!!!!

Clare takes away the anxiety of leaving my animals, leaving me to go away with true peace of mind.

I have been using New Forest Pet Care to walk my dog Jack 3 x a week since 2011. Clare is reliable and trustworthy and has access to my home when I am not there. She has proven to be friendly and organised and I am so happy with the care she gives Jack.

Jack loves the walks he goes on with Clare and some of the other dogs she cares for. The walks are varied and I always know if there are ever any issues she gets in contact immediately and deals with anything in a professional and caring way.

I would recommend Clare to any one of my friends/family, she has been fantastic.
