    Steven S

    Daniel at Ruffined Pet Services has been walking my little rescue dog, Willow for almost two years, and I am so glad I chose him to walk my pet.

    Daniel is reliable, flexible and trustworthy. My dog initially had some issues in socialising with other dogs, and Daniel has been patient and understanding and due to his efforts, her behaviour and social confidence has improved dramatically. He is also very honest; on one occasion I accidentally paid twice and this was brought to my attention before I noticed my error and was quickly rectified.

    I would have no hesitation in recommending Daniel to any potential client and would give more than 5 stars if this was possible.

    I have used Dan from the first day he started his service in Barnsley, he is such a nice Youngman, and honest to a fault. we had three dogs at the start of his services but in the middle of last year we lost one of the dogs, and without us knowing he was an artist as well, he proceeded to draw our pet and in so much detail, so much so that when we walk downstairs each morning it's like she is there waiting for us, and on each Christmas our dogs have been very lucky to have a doggy Xmas stocking filled with treats.
    Our dogs have gone from strength to strength in his hands in his training them to be good a walk at heel pets instead of unruly I would fully recommended Dan as a very good dog walker and trusted individual.
