Our border collie Geoff absolutely LOVES going to daycare, and he doesn’t look back once he sees the van. Going to daycare has completely changed him, he is much calmer for having had company during the day, and we don’t feel guilty going to work in the morning. He is absolutely shattered after daycare, and has also learnt some good manners from Emma & co! It’s the only place I feel happy about leaving him too when we go away. Worth every penny, and Emma and James go out of their way to help however they can.
Emma has been taking Tilly for her morning walks for a couple of weeks now and I have to say I am really pleased with the service she offers. I have a very nervous dog who I was apprehensive about sending on a pack walk but Emma has been fantastic in socialising her with the other dogs and improving her confidence. In just a couple of weeks I can see a marked improvement. The prices are very reasonably for the time and effort she puts in to the walks and I would highly recommend her to anyone who was considering using her.

Where to begin?! Emma is a true professional and from the moment she met our dogs it was clear to see that she is not only an expert with our canine friends, but that she adores them and the work that she does. That is such an important factor when it comes to leaving our beautiful pets and we went on our short break, feeling confident that our doggies were in great, loving and safe hands.
Whilst away, Emma would post photos (lots of lovely photos) of Stella and Hugo on their walks, socialising with lots of other doggies too. They looked like they were having a great time and it made us very happy to be able to see our pooches whilst away from them. Emma was also very punctual at replying to us via text with updates and has even messaged us since they came back home, to see how they both are.
When our doggies arrived home to us, it was so very obvious that they had had a wonderful little holiday of their own! Hugo even sulked a little when Emma left and appeared to miss her! Since they have returned, their name recall has been better than ever and their confidence around other doggies at the park, on their walk today, has shot up! And they were only with Emma for three days!
We will certainly be using Canine Capers again in the future and I whole heartedly recommend Emma and her team. Their love and passion for dogs is so clear. A massive thank you from the Harvey Family, we’ll be using your services again. xxx
Emma and Jim have set up an amazing business, dog heaven! George and Bobbie went for a sleepover and had THE BEST time ever. Cared for in a loving environment with a resident pack that are a credit to their family. Already booked the guys to stay next May. Couldn’t rate Canine Capers highly enough. Thanks guys. Love George, Bobbie and their very happy owner. xxx
Have a very energetic Rhodesian Ridgeback called Basil and have been using Emma regulary. Was very nervous leaving him at first, but with Emma’s knowledge of behaviour/breed characteristics and handling skills I don’t really know what I was worried about! Not only can I relax when he is away but Basil has made lots of new friends and Emma always tries to accommodate around the timings you need!
Tulip and Roxy had such a fantastic overnight stay with Emma. Two very tired boxer babes for the entire day after. Great friendly service and professional. It made my night even better knowing that I didn’t need to worry about the dogs as they were in such great hands 🙂 Lots of hugs from Tulip and Roxy ( and a special one for Jim from Roxy)! Highly recommended and will definately use Emma again.
Started using Canine Capers a couple of months ago and couldn’t be happier. They’ve given me confidence in leaving my best buddy in their care with their knowledge of canine behaviour and wonderful walking locations. My 11 month Boxer Dog, Mason, comes back from day care with his tail wagging, happy, healthy and content. He adores Emma and has great fun with her own pack. I wouldn’t leave my pup with anyone else….GREAT job guys! Huge THANK YOU x
