Testimonials

Many thanks to my clients for the time they took to provide these testimonials


Mary has been with us since Helga was a tiny 3 month old puppy, who was not allowed outside yet, so Mary would come and play with the little monster while we were at work. After a month, they started going out for walks and then Helga was introduced to the other dogs on the group walk. Mary is extremely knowledgeable in pairing up dogs to avoid fights, and  she really cares about all the pups under her control. Helga absolutely loves and respects her (we are absolutely jealous because we don't get the same welcome as Mary does when she arrives!), but that is just to prove how good Mary is at her job. Helga arrives home tired but happy, and the photos Mary sends after each walk are awesome! We can't recommend her highly enough - she is the THE BEST dog walker (and Helga's favourite human, no doubt). Thank you, dear Mary, for providing the best adventures to our dog!

Mary is one of my little Pomeranian Louis' absolutely favourite people! He is always so excited to see her and lights up with excitement when she comes in the door. My daily photos show Louis happy in the park, happy having a swim, happy playing with other dogs - overall just a happy dog loving the variety of his outings and social interaction with other dogs. I love that my furbaby is so well looked after and cannot thank Mary enough for the great care she takes in looking after Louis. I am always relaxed knowing Mary is completely dependable and always there to take Louis for his walks and give him lots of cuddles.

I came across Mary through a personal recommendation and I'm so glad I did. Mary came to our house on a weeknight for an initial meeting with our dog Audrey to give us an overview of her services. More importantly she used this meeting to assess Audrey's personality and figure out which dogs she looks after, Audrey would best get along with. She clearly knows what she is dong. Since that first meeting Mary has without doubt become one of Audrey's favourite people. I know this because I have seen for myself how excited Audrey gets when Mary arrives to take 
 her out to Kedron Brook with her friends. I am not ashamed to say, on that day, I wanted to go too! The service Mary provides is top notch and flexible. I get photos of Audrey having fun texted to me while I am at my desk at work which make me smile each time. She lets me know if Audrey is not herself or has acquired a scratch due to rough play, and has come to our rescue on short notice to take her on a day when he Dad and I had to be away from home unexpectedly. I could not recommend Mary more highly. She knows what she is doing and she genuinely loves dogs. I know Audrey (and we) will have a long and happy relationship with her.

I had to go away for a month quite suddenly and found Mary through a google search to walk my Australian Shepherd, Alfie, as my husband has knee problems and can"t walk him. Mary popped in to meet Alfie and us and to assess what would best suit Alfie. We agreed on a group walk daily. Mary is very professional and very trustworthy.
She is a real dog person in an understated way and clearly loves the many different characters, challenges and responses that each dog brings. I was quite worried about leaving him as he is "my boy" and I know how he works and what he likes, very well. Mary sent daily updates and photos that showed Alfie quickly getting used to a new situation, new dogs and a new routine. In a very short time, it became clear that Mary and Alfie have formed a great bond and I felt totally confident that he was being well looked after and having lots of fun with her and the other dogs she walks!
She has a quiet, loving and firm manner with the dogs and knows their need for routine. It's through this that she is able to manage a group walk with a number of dogs and they all seem to have great fun. She uses positive reinforcement to manage any behavior issues.
My husband said that Alfie watched out for her every day, in fact could hear the car coming to pick him up, would run to the door ready to jump in the car and off they went.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Mary to anyone needing a good, reliable and caring dog walker or sitter.

As I am a veterinarian, my two dogs and cat are rescue cases that have various medical and orthopaedic problems. Mary takes such great care of them and they are always happy to see her.She will even turn the fan on for them at night if it's been a hot day!

We have had Mary to walk and wash my sons' dogs since September 2015 and we couldn't have been happier-we knew the dogs were in safe hands. She really loves what she does and it shows in her interaction with the dogs and the interest she shows in anything to do with the dogs. Another big plus is the dogs love her and get so excited when they see her!! I really used to love getting the photos and message that followed every walk/wash-the dogs always looked so happy.
I would be very happy to recommend Mary's services to anyone. Chloe and Max will definitely miss her.
WELL DONE MARY AND THANK YOU VERY MUCH

Mary has been amazing with our dogs. They just love her to bits and it's been a lifesaver for our family with busy schedules and two crazy dogs. We couldn't speak more highly of Mary's service and love for our dogs.

We can not thank Mary enough for all she has done in relation to our German Shepherd puppy Lexi. Not only did she come to walk and play with Lexi from 8 weeks of age, she also helped us with training her as well. She lent us her crate when we didn't have one and also advised us about walking Lexi with a halti.
Thank you Mary once again for all you have done

Such a fabulous service for Brisbane pooches- Charlie loves his doggy catch-ups, and it's a highlight of my working day getting pictures of his romps around the park with new found furry friends. Thanks, Mary!

Mary from Brisbane City Dog Walking has been taking my Boxer, Toby, on exciting outings for about 12 months now. Toby gets so excited on Tuesday mornings that he waits by the front door for about an hour for Mary to arrive. To see Toby so happy and willing to go out every week is all the assurance I need to know that Mary does a fantastic job. I have always found her to be very professional, kind and caring to the dogs - she treats them as if they are her own. Mary has a great sense of humour and seems to enjoy her work thoroughly. I would not hesitate to recommend Mary's services to any dog owner - I'm sure they will be as happy as I am that their best friend is in very capable hands.

From the moment we met Mary we felt confident and reassured that she could help us look after our new 9 week old puppy Benji, while we returned to work. Mary helped us plan what time of day we needed visits and for how long, always keeping us up to date with how the visits go and working with us to modify visits as he grows. Mary has been able to assist us with building Benji's confidence and backing up puppy training by providing regular opportunities to learn new, appropriate doggy behaviours,as well as valuable socialising time when he was too young for dog parks and long walks. I can't thank Mary enough for her kindness, reliability and maintaining the security of our home.
We highly recommend The Brisbane City Dog Walking Company to anyone has a puppy or a dog they care for.

I have been using Mary and Kay from Brisbane City Dog Walking to walk my puppy Delilah for about 5 months now. They are always reliable in their service and are always very flexible to suit my needs. They often go above and beyond what is expected and I really appreciate their personalised service. Delilah also has much improved behaviour when walking with me now thanks to what I assume is their good influence. She's always happy when I get home from work and I don't worry that she's at home bored and lonely without me.
I couldn't recommend their services more!

Mary's dog walking services, for Brisbane City Dog Walking, are the best we've had. We have tried a couple in the past, but Mary is outstanding! Not only does she do her job well, she is always on time, and very courteous and professional, our little dog just adores her! We normally use Mary's services whilst we are away on holidays, and she always follows up her services with a txt to see whether we've had a good time and if we've been happy with the service. I would highly recommend Mary (which I have already done so to a few of my friends) if you are thinking of using her services.

I have recently gone back to full time work and after being with my puppy Pepper all day at home we were really worried about her being alone and bored all day. We live in an apartment so stimulation is very limited and she doesn't really mind her toys if she is by herself. It is all about company. And then due to a recommendation, Mary came to our rescue! From Mary's first visit, Pepper loves her to bits! Now I know that she walks/runs and hangs out with other pups and she comes home exhausted. I arrive home every day to Pepper happy and relaxed. We are so happy that we've found Mary and I would recommend her 100%. She truly loves her job and it shows. I love the texts and photos of happy dogs playing and they truly make my day. Mary you are the best!

Mary has been a life saver for us by walking our two Alaskan Malamutes. We have tried many dog walkers in the past but all have found them too difficult to control, until Mary. She is very professional, fun and firm with the dogs. Thank you so much for your help! Definitely recommend!

Thank you so much to Kay and Mary.
I couldn't hope, for my best friend of 16+ years, Jackson, to be in better hands. I laugh when they have to wake him up to take him out. They make all their clients feel special and provide such a friendly, flexible and reliable service. Being a shiftworker who sometimes has late changes to shifts, it is greatly appreciated that they accomodate my changes when ever possible.
I cannot recommend them more highly or express my appreciation enough for the service they provide and care that they take of Jackson.
Thankyou again.

I first came into contact with Mary at Brisbane City Dog Walking when I needed some last minute care for my Labrador pooches, Rufus and Daisy. Mary made sure the pups were fed and taken on massive adventures every day. She sent me updates and photos of them at their favourite Kedron Brook, playing with lots of new friends! When I came home it was clear they were relaxed and had been well loked after. I'm home now but Mary still takes them out for a mid week adventure each week - a great treat for them. It is clear that Mary loves them as much as I do, and I am extremely grateful for how well she looks after them.
