Derek is fantastic - he can be relied upon entirely, is very responsive, and clearly loves all animals! I couldn’t recommend him highly enough!

Thank you Henry. I really enjoy cat sitting your gorgeous moggy Malcolm. She is a creature of habit and I can see she enjoys her life with you and her own routine which consists of sleeping, eating and outside adventures although she does seem to prefer her home comforts in the form of lying stretched out on your sofa!

Derek is a fantastic dog walker. He has been such a positive influence on our dog and she absolutely loves him! He is very reliable, friendly, knowledgable about dogs and I would recommend him to anyone. Thanks Derek for all your help!

Thank you Alice for your kind words. It's a pleasure walking Lyla - her mix of German Shepherd and Rottweiler is an interesting one and it's touching to see how loving she especially with children and despite the fact that she is a rescue from Romania. Obviously you and Lauren lavish lots of love on her which has really made a difference to her rehabilitation.

Derek continues to provide us with excellent, reliable and accommodating service. Derek knows exactly what our Freddie loves to do and allows him to do so under careful supervision. Freddie goes bananas whenever he sees Derek’s car pull up outside our house and runs to the door to greet him. We thank the day we discovered Derek and hope he continues to say yes whenever we ask for his excellent service.

Thank you Richard for your appreciation. Of course Freddie is a remarkable dog and is the first German Shepherd I have had the pleasure of going on walks with. Apart from being a very handsome boy he is of course highly intelligent as well as having a vivid imagination. I have never seen any dog other than Freddie barking at and rolling rocks with his big paws as if they were some kind of formidable adversaries! He always gives me a really warm welcome and just loves reversing into me to have his backside rubbed. For my part I thank the day I discovered Freddie and his parents, Richard and Wendy.

We use Derek mostly for his dog walking services and Wilson, our GSD loves him. We always get a video of his walks and an update on how he has been on his walks too. We would recommend Derek to anyone needing a regular or sporadic dog walker.

Thank you Jennifer for taking the time to write your review about my dog walking service. I love Wilson too - such a character. He always gives me such a warm welcome! And when I took him for a drink to Nether Edge Coffee Shop on Saturday four students there just couldn't resist him and insisted on fussing over him - he definitely is a charismatic character!

Derek is an absolutely brilliant Dog Walker. Extremely professional, very reliable and has an excellent app which tracks all of your dog’s walks. He has also been incredibly kind and compassionate with our puppy. She's not the easiest of pooches (reactive, woofy) but Derek has gone above and beyond to build a solid relationship with her and she now absolutely adores him. We trust him implicitly and would be completely lost without him. Thank you, Derek.

Thank you Hannah for your appreciation. It really is a pleasure walking Astrid and as every week goes by she becomes more calm. Astrid of course being a Cocker has lots of energy and I love her enthusiasm for exploring every nook and cranny. I also love the way she licks her lips to let me know she'd like a treat - so cute! By exposing her to other dogs and people whilst on her walks she has become far more sociable and a lot less reactive. And of course she just loves cuddles, just one of the things that we humans and dogs have in common.

Josh and I are very happy with walkies every day from Derek. Josh absolutely loves Derek and I know he looks forward to his adventures - even in the rain!
Reply from K9 Time 2024.05.09
Thank you Jennifer. Of course I'm delighted Josh loves me especially since the feeling is mutual. Bearing in mind his background it's truly remarkable that Josh can love. Josh personifies the old adage that love conquers all and I feel sure that the love you have given him has enabled Josh to become the adorable and loving Cocker Spaniel he now is. Josh is a joy to walk and always gives me such a warm welcome with his twirls and fetching me his toy - a truly amazing and loving dog.

Excellent service from Derek. We get regular updates and lovely videos of our cat Minnie. Derek is caring and spends time fussing over Minnie who clearly loves it! Highly recommend.
Reply from K9 Time 2024.05.09
Thank you Jan for your kind words. Minnie is a really affectionate and beautiful cat and after I've fed and watered her and cleaned her litter I like nothing better than to invite her to lie on my chest and stroke her. Judging by her contented purrs she really appreciates this and I'm pleased that I can bring her some comfort whilst you're on holiday.

My two dogs absolutely love Derek. He is obviously a true dog lover and they get so excited when they see him. He is trustworthy and so reliable he never lets you down. What a find he was.
Reply from K9 Time 2024.05.09
Thank you Helen. I love going for walkies with Amos and Rafferty. They are real characters. Amos looks so cute when I arrive with his big bulbous nose pressed up against the window as I approach your front door, chin resting on the window sill., staring at me with his big human like Spinone eyes! And Rafferty talking to me in Lurcher language is a wonder to behold as I get them ready to leave for our walk.

Ronnie, my high energy Vizsla, is more excited to see Derek than he is to see me, his own mother (even though I get up in the middle of the night and feed him twice a day).
Reply from K9 Time 2024.05.05
Thank you Caroline for your appreciation although I'm pretty sure Ronnie only has eyes for you and maybe sees me as another great opportunity to go into Gillfield Wood and have a good sniff around as well as the occasional treat.

Derek has been fantastic with my reactive dog Bronson who loves going out for walks with him! He is so happy while he is out with Derek as I get videos and photos of their adventures! I am quite nervous of people taking Bronson for walks due to him not been good with other dogs but Derek put me at ease and listened to my concerns and reassured me so I felt happy!! Derek is lovely and would highly recommend him for dog walking and other services! Thank you Derek from me and Bronson!!

Derek took care of our two lively and somewhat anxious older dogs for three days while we went away on a short break. As he had not taken care of our dogs before, he visited twice (at no cost) to get to know them and us beforehand, which was very much appreciated. Derek visited the dogs up to four times a day, as we had arranged. The dogs positively thrived under his care. He walked, fed, played and interacted with them and sent us regular updates (including videos) which was great. He clearly is a true dog-lover. The dogs greeted us happily when we got back, and it was clear that they had been well looked after in our absence. I would have no hesitation in asking Derek to look after our dogs again or recommending K9 Time to others.

Thank you Kaarina for taking the time to show your appreciation of the way I looked after Heidi & Bacon. Trusting someone you don't know to look after your best friends isn't easy and I'm glad you chose me - especially so since Heidi & Bacon are such sensitive, affectionate souls. They were a joy to look after and I trust you will call on me again whenever you need me to care for them. #dogwalker

An excellent quality of service and brilliant work with my Romanian rescue dog. I would highly recommend.

I'm glad your experience using my services has been good. Alec, I thank you for entrusting me with Bessie's care and for taking the time to recommend my dog walking and dog sitting services to other dog owners in Sheffield. Your kind words are much appreciated and I hope you won't hesitate to let me know whenever you'd like me to look after Bessie again in future. #dogwalker

Derek has looked after our two dogs and has been happy to tailor his services to their very different needs. Will happily continue using and highly recommend to anyone looking for non-group based dog walks and dog sitting.
Reply from K9 Time 2022.10.15
Thank you Ian. Appreciate you taking the time to write your review of my dog walking and dog sitting services. Stanley and Rupert are two of the most entertaining and sweet-natured dogs I care for. I never tire of seeing them compete to see which one gets to the ball first when I throw it. They really are such characters!

Thank you Kaarina. I love looking after Bacon & Heidi. They are such gentle, sweet and sensitive souls. And I look forward to the opportunity to care for them again whenever you need my dog sitting or dog walking services.

Derek provides a fantastic service. Our dog absolutely loves him, Derek is very accommodating to our needs and the online platform Derek uses makes booking a walk so east and strait forward. Derek also leaves a report on how the walk went with some photos and these always brighten my day when I see them at work!
Reply from K9 Time 2022.07.07
Thanks Connor. I'm delighted you like how I look after Hugo whilst you're working and my online platform that makes online booking easy. Of course I absolutely adore Hugo - who wouldn't adore such a loving little dog who looks so cute he could melt the coldest of hearts? I'm looking forward to meeting your new puppy and seeing the contrast between the laid back Hugo and the supercharged addition to your family.

We were in need of a dog walker for our 11 year old boy during the week, as he has a tendency to spend his days asleep on the sofa where he can whilst we’re at work. Derek came into Hugo’s life on recommendation from a work colleague, and he hasn’t been quite the same since. Gone is our lazy, grumpy boy and in his place is a younger, more social good boy - we are convinced this is due to the midday adventures he has with Derek. The updates on the app we receive from Derek post walk are fantastic and do wonders for my guilt, as I know not only what route Hugo’s adventure took him, but the pictures and videos of Derek and Hugo interacting on their walks put my mind at ease and I know he is having a good sniff (of every tree he comes across, sorry Derek) and there won’t be any accidents when we get home (thankfully Derek tracks that too for you!) Using the app to schedule Derek couldn’t be easier, and we were pleasantly surprised that he was able to look after Hugo at short notice on a Saturday when we had to leave town for the day - Hugo in particular! We could go on but should probably end on how grateful we are that Derek has given Hugo some of his bounce back. We are due to welcome a puppy to the fold in the next fortnight and are hoping he’ll be able to help do the opposite with the ball of furry energy heading our way!

Thank you Eve for your appreciation of my services. I have to say that Hugo is one of the cutest, sweetest dogs I have had the pleasure of meeting. I really look forward to accompanying Hugo on his walks. And he always gives me a warm welcome, turning over onto his back as soon as I enter your home for a bit of a belly rub before we set off on another investigation of the local vegetation. On his walk he keeps checking in on me with those big beautiful eyes and I love that too - Hugo is a dog in a million!

Derek is brilliant, my dog liked him from first meet. Great service.

Thank you Katt. The feeling is mutual - I loved Bruce right from our first meeting - such a courageous boy with a remarkable indomitable spirit at 16yo!

Derek at K9 Time is the best dog-carer we could wish for – reliable, trustworthy and very caring. Our Belle is a loving and fun vizsla but also strong and reactive so we were looking for someone who would be fine with her complex (demanding!) nature, and we really couldn’t wish for a more caring and patient person. Derek has taken care of Belle a few times, including daily care and longer stays, and we know that she will be well looked after and given lots of attention. He sends pictures and updates regularly and that makes us feel even more comfortable leaving Belle in his hands. We can certainly recommend Derek to other dog owners and will be booking again. Thank you!

Thank you Gosia for your appreciation of my dog walking and dog sitting services. Belle is such a beautiful and sensitive dog you can’t help but love her! And you and Adam are so kind always making sure that my stay in your home is as comfortable as possible. I also appreciate you leaving explicit instructions for taking care of Belle so that her routine remains unchanged when you are on holiday, and you entrust her care to me. I’m looking forward to taking care of Belle again - she’s an absolute joy to look after!

Derek has walked our 2 dogs on a number of occasions. We have been really pleased with his flexibility and helpfulness in coming to walk them, particularly at short notice. The dogs seem to like him a lot. He is trustworthy and always communicates promptly.

Thank you Deborah for taking the time and trouble to review my dog walking service. I appreciate it. I love taking Ozzy and Jaffa for walks in Ecclesall Wood and you and Paul are a pleasure to deal with.
