Very happy with the service provided, Zero and Casey wait at the window every morning  for their walk ! Mark always manages to get us in at short notice as well, as my shifts sometimes change unexpectedly which we are really grateful for.

Sherry – Lee Hancock , Redditch January 2022.

We first met Mark when our dog was a puppy and he is now 7 years old ! We trust Mark and the team to have our house key and take our dog for a fun walk. They are always amazing. We have never  been let down. Thank you to all the team at Happy Paws x

We have used Mark & his team to look after my cat whenever we have a holiday for the last 4 years. Very professional service . Would highly recommend .

Mr Dave Wilkinson, Redditch December 2021

Last year my dog unfortunately died but prior to that Mark and his team at Happy paws had been walking her regularly for 6 years. She was a nervous dog but the team soon bonded with her and she was vey content in their company. Throughout the 6 years I found them to be very reliable and caring and would thoroughly recommend them as a service.

Peter Hutton, Redditch April 2021

Mark and his team has looked after my cat for years when I have been on holiday.  He is honest, reliable and made sure my cat was totally comfortable.  I highly recommend Happy Paws.

Dr Colin Tinline Redditch  April 2021

Mark and his team have looked after my goldendoodle Poppy and my little Romanian rescue Cali for 5+ years. Providing peace of mind when I’ve been at work and catering for all their changing needs.
I was particularly worried introducing Cali to walks with someone new as she was a very scared, wary dog when she first arrived. I need not have worried as Mark and his team looked after them both so thoughtfully that Cali soon came round and is now a much more confident dog.
Moving 200 miles away has been the only reason we have unfortunately stopped using Happy Paws and we just hope we can find a dog walker half as good down here in Cornwall!
Highly recommend!  Sarah Oliver X, February 2021

More than happy to give a review “Mark and team always provide a great service and I know my cat and my house are in trusted hands when we are away, it is a real comfort”
Regards Kate Redditch  February 2021

Used this service many times, excellent communicator, my pets are well looked after and totally entrusted with my home. Would recommend 5 stars.

Andrew Cook Redditch  December 2020

Thank you Happy Paws , we are always more relaxed knowing you are checking in on our cats while we are away.

Mrs C. Evans Redditch November 2020

Reliable, trusted, Paris my cat always looks relaxed when I’m back from holiday or a break, she still missed me of course lol and its very important to know your pet is in good hands when you away. Thank you Mark.

Catherine Clave Bromsgrove, August 2020

Happy Paws Pet Services provides a reliable service and my dog Scout really looks forward to his walks.

Wayne Smyth  Redditch, August 2020

I am delighted to recommend Mark Loveday and his team at Happy Paws.
For the last 18 months they have walked my dog five times a week and I have found them friendly,  reliable and professional.
My dog loves each of them and they in turn seem fond of her.
I have every confidence that she is well looked after when in their care
and I know that she is happy with them.

Hilary Holland  Bromsgrove , March 2020

Mark and his team have been walking my dog Sheba for over five years now. In all that time they have been 100% reliable whatever the weather. Sheba is a little bit nervous but the team have forged a relationship with her such that she is totally trusting and obedient with them. I am happy to recommend happypaws to anybody.

Peter Hutton  Redditch,  November 2019

Right from the start Mark has proved very reliable, helpful, dependable, positive, kind and totally trustworthy. Our three dogs love going with him and are ecstatic to see him! We’d be lost without him.

Colin & Rosie , Bromsgrove January 2019

Mark and his team have been walking my dog Sheba for 4 years and they have always been reliable and friendly. My dog is a little bit nervous but the team have established a relationship with her so that she is both confident and trusting in them. I can thoroughly recommend them to provide a skilled and reliable service.
Peter Hutton Walkwood , Redditch December 2018

Mark and the team have walked my two dogs, Frank and Tilly, for 3 years now.  They love their walks (and a treat or two) and are always very excited to see Mark pull up outside. Mark is always very reliable and keeps in touch with daily updates. Knowing they’re in safe hands really puts my mind at rest while I’m at work and most importantly, my doggies are happy!

Cheers, Tracy C  Riverside, Redditch August 2018

Thank you very much for all of the walks you, Barbara and Ruth have done for Bramble over the last year, she clearly loves all of you. Thanks also for being so flexible when we have needed extra walks or changed days etc (and for saving Georges skin when he`s forgotten his keys … twice)

Thanks again Lindsay & George,  Aston Fields December 2017

Happy paws have worked with our dog Diesel for nearly 2 years now. Mark has always been reliable and trustworthy. He has also been flexible when we have needed him to be which has really helped us out. I’d recommend mark and happy paws to other people

Ben loves his walks you should see him as soon as he clocks sight of Barbara on a Friday he’s barking and wagging his tail.Thanks again it’s really made a difference to Ben :)

Vicky B, Bromsgrove October 2016

“I can thoroughly recommend Happy Paws Pet Services the service is reliable and trustworthy, our dogs are relaxed and happy after Mark has taken care of them.”

Sue lear,  Stoke Prior September 2016

Awesome. Thank you so much for everything Mark. Our kitties were super happy and relaxed when we got home. I`ll be keeping your number for our next holiday.

Natalie, Bromsgrove May 2016


Happy Paws have been looking after our 3 dogs for several years now and we are extremely happy with the service they provide. The daily update via text message puts our mind at rest when we away on holiday. It’s great to know that the dogs are being well looked after & that they are happy in their own home – not kennels. Thank you Mark for providing such a trustworthy service.
Sharon, Redditch  January 2016


Just come home to two happy cats and two happy rats and a house that feels like we just left it. Couldn’t be happier with Happy Paws fabulous service. Thanks very much.

Pippa T , Bromsgrove June 2015
I have a nervous stray cat that I look after.  Mark has visited and fed him when I have been on holiday.  Mark is reliable and trustworthy and has provided an excellent service over the past two years.  So, if you are looking for someone to look after your cat when you are away, look no further, Mark’s your man.

Colin, Redditch  June 2015

My collie is a nervous rescue and takes time to get to know strangers , but she took to Mark immediately . He  walks her twice a week but always flexible should I need additional days. I have every confidence in Mark knowing she is in his capable hands whilst I am at work .  I would recommend Mark to any dog owner .

Karen, Stoke Prior  March 2015

Service with a smile, that’s what Mark delivers. Mark is taking care of our three greyhounds 5 days a week, and during holidays 4 times a day (7 days a week). The dogs are extremely happy with Happy Paws, and because of his dedication we don’t have to bring them to a kennel.  Besides this, Mark is very flexible and always tries to satisfy our needs. If you look for a pet sitter, don’t look any further, call Mark and let your pet decide.

John, Dodford    August 2014

A Happy Paws representative has been visiting Millie twice a week since she was 8 weeks old. 2 years later we are as happy with the service as we were from day 1. It gives us peace of mind knowing Millie is being well looked after and having her favourite ‘walkies’ whilst we are out at work. They have always been very friendly, professional and accomodating when we have had any requests and it is always nice hearing how Millie has been from reading the note Mark has left us.


Sarah and Sam. Redditch, August 2014

We met Mark when he took over the business from Sarah.  Mark came round to meet with us and we were very happy for him to come in and look after our 4 cats when we were on our frequent house hunting trips.  Mark is very reliable and trustworthy and we would, without hesitation, recommend him.  It gave us peace of mind that the boys were well looked after rather than put them in a cattery, not to mention feeding our fish and taking our mail in for us… Thanks Mark! We have now moved from the area but wish Mark and Happy Paws all the best for the future.
Let me know if you need anything else, happy to oblige,
Kind regards
Margaretta   Redditch , August 2014


My name is Nigel Wakefield from Redditch, and Mark has been walking my 2 Chocolate Labradors for the last 6 months. He is totally reliable and trustworthy with my dogs. Originally I used Mark to walk Daisy and May during my wife’s poor health. My dogs love him and they have improved dramatically walking on the lead. Whenever I am away I always ask Mark to walk my dogs, gives me peace of mind my dogs are well looked after. I like the fact Mark walks the dogs properly and does not subtask the work out. I recommend Mark without hesitation based on my experience over the last 6 months.

You can contact me on for confirmation of this recommendation.Date 18/07/2014

I have a rescue Rottie who can be nervous of people, Mark has taken on walking my best friend at short notice, filling in for our previous walker. He has taken on the specifics of Boe`s needs, lets me know how she has been everyday and he is great when it comes to extra walks if I am stuck at work, a simple text and he pops round. We are still working on Boe`s adjustment to her new life and Mark is aware of Boe`s timid side and when she wants to get over excited to play with other dogs, so his input to her continued progression even with the most simple of challenges is most gratefully received.

Thank you Mark and I look forward to seeing Boe progress with so much support in her life.

Jen, Catshill, Bromsgrove  April 2014


Mark has been coming to walk our dog Archie during the day, whilst my husband and I are at work for a while now and we don`t know what we would do without this service. As we both work full time we do feel anxious leaving him, but Mark comes every day to play, make a fuss and walk him which Archie thoroughly  enjoys. Its good to know that he is getting the attention he deserves during the day even when we are not around. I receive a text after each visit, which offers me reassurance whilst sitting at my desk at work, which is a godsend. Mark is always reliable and flexible and we know that he is there if we ever need any extra ” doggy care”.

Sam M , Enfield, Redditch  January 2014

“Mark has been looking after and walking our little puppy Bentley since he was 12 weeks old. It was quite daunting at first, knowing that myself and my partner work full time and how it would be leaving the puppy and I have to say I was nervous, but Mark very quickly made us feel much better and has been fantastic with Bentley. Knowing that our puppy gets fed, playtime and a walk throughout the day has really helped to put our mind at ease and I know that we can leave the house without having to worry at all about the dog. Bentley loves his visits from Mark !!!”

Laura Wright , Brockhill November 2013

I`m so glad I found Mark & Happy Paws Redditch, I was very  nervous leaving my 2 kittens for a fortnight for the first time and found happy paws on-line . After speaking to Mark on the phone and explaining this to him we arranged for him to come over and see me and the little ones. After his first visit meeting him and seeing him interact with the kittens, he made me at ease. He visited a further two times before I went on my holiday with my husband . He text me twice while I was away with photos of the kittens enjoying themselves !! Mark and his wife did a marvellous job taking care of our house and kittens.  We are 100% going to use Happy Paws Redditch in future when we go on holiday to take care of our kittens,(who are not going to be kittens very soon!) and already recommended them to two of my friends! I will happily recommend Happy Paws Redditch to all my friends and family.

Mrs Amanda White , Redditch  October 2013.

I contacted Happy Paws Pet Services when I was let down by my usual kennels. The following day Mark came out to my house to meet Mitzi and offer an alternative solution. I was able to go off on my holidays without any concerns at all. I found Mark to be reliable and trustworthy and will use Mark again in the future, Thanks Mark!

Richard, Bromsgrove   October 2013,

I contacted Happy Paws Redditch as I wanted someone to walk my dog whilst at work. Mark came out to  meet my dog and discuss his needs. I would recommend Happy Paws to anyone looking for a dog walking service as I find Mark reliable, trustworthy and flexible,  and my dog seems much happier for it, when I get home.                                                Karen,  Winyates Green  August 2013.


As the owner of two senior staffies, I was very reluctant to put them in kennels whilst I went abroad to get married as in the past they have pined. Mark and Sarahs service was the perfect solution! They came twice a day and expertly managed my two dogs, who can be quite a handful. Being able to leave them in their own environment with the run of their garden during the day and being safely tucked in at night was a Godsend for us. I returned to find them in better shape than ever! Sarah and Mark kept me informed of their well being throughout the two weeks I was away, even sending us pictures of them.

I cant thank Happy Paws Pet Services enough for their expert care of my dogs! Fantastic Service!                                                                                                                                                       Gemma, Batchley, Redditch  August 2013.
