Client Testimonials

We have been using Fiona’s “A Walk in The Park” for many years to care for our beloved pets. We would never consider a kennel when we go away because Fiona does such an excellent job of looking after our home, and caring for our three dogs, and our cat (20 years old and in need of medication). She has an impressive knowledge of animal behaviour and clearly loves all her charges. Fiona is the ultimate professional, thoroughly reliable, and our animals are always super-excited to see her. We can go away knowing that they will be in the best of care. They love their weekly play dates with her, which are great for people who are away from home all day. We cannot recommend “A Walk in The Park “more highly.

Barb & Graham, Bardon

I have two very spoilt Maltese Terrier-Poodle cross dogs – Baz and Henrietta. Fiona has been walking my dogs twice a week for the last five years. They are anxious little creatures who can be quite reactive when out and about. Fiona is superb with them, handling them in a firm but loving way ensuring that everyone enjoys Brisbane’s parks and outdoor spaces. I never have any qualms about leaving them in the care of Fiona and her colleagues. Polite, friendly, punctual and kind to these special animals, I thoroughly recommend A Walk in the Park Professional Services.

Jodi Frawley

Fiona and The Team are amazing! They have been so caring and reliable in taking care of our dog Florence. When she was just a puppy and we were working full time it was so comforting knowing that Fiona would be popping in for some cuddles, a walk and lunch. They so often squeezed us in last minute and we were even treated to a Christmas Gift. We really appreciate knowing Flo was in such great hands. Highly recommend to all furry friends looking for great care.

Emily, Indooroopilly

Fiona has cared for our cat for several years, for up to two weeks at a time. Fiona is not only completely professional – always on time, always prompt and clear in her communication, always sending us updates about our cat – she goes beyond the basics and spends time actively caring for our cat. She has noticed when he had fleas or a sore eye and let us know. She plays with him. If our cat could talk I’m pretty sure he’d say “Fiona is awesome!” 100% recommend A Walk in the Park.

Christy & Stephen

We have used Fiona’s dog walking and cat feeding services a number of times over the years and have always found her to be cheerful and reliable. It has been comforting to know she has been looking after our pets at home while we have been away. I strongly suspect she may be Ziggy’s favourite person in the world. Highly recommended by both myself and Ziggy.

Gerard & Karen

We always use A Walk in the Park to look after our little cat and two guinea pigs when we go away. Fiona is wonderful and takes very good care of them, and updates us daily as to how they are going. She also keeps an eye on our home by bringing in the post, putting out the rubbish bins on collection day, emptying the skimmer box in the pool, and giving the place a lived in look by turning lights on and off in the house. She’s so wonderful, we just love her service and can highly recommend it.

Kate Angus

Fiona first took care of our furbaby Jessie in early 2012. Since then, a Walk in the Park has looked after her a number of times. It is such a relief to know that our kitty is well looked after and she doesn’t have to leave home while we are away on short holidays. The text and photo updates are really comforting. Our kitty loves Fiona. I would recommend A Walk in the Park to anyone that needs to have their pet looked after with a kind and caring attitude.

Suzy and Alistair

Sooty and Latte (our very spoilt Toy Poodles) have had a strong bond with A Walk in the Park for the past 6 years. We have peace of mind knowing they will continue to be spoilt with love and affection while we are away. We receive continual updates while away and we always return to find two very contented and relaxed dogs who have continued to enjoy the life they are accustomed to. We feel very comfortable knowing that our dogs are taken care of in their home environment, getting regular exercise and interaction. A very professional service and A Walk in the Park is always reliable and easy to interact with.

Helen & Glen

I’m really lucky to have Fiona looking after my little feline when I’m away on holidays. Fiona is cheerful, reliable… and loves pets. It’s great to get regular updates when I’m away about what my little girl is up to.

Michael Corcoran

Fiona has been coming to look after our 3 cats for the past 6-7 years every time when we went away for holidays. After her first visits, I knew I would not replace her with anyone else. For our 3 furry kids who have different personalities, Fiona has become their best friend. Her care and love of the cats makes our trips worry free and enjoyable. We now have peace of mind knowing Fiona is there for our cats when we need her. A big Thank you Fiona!

Charlene & Guthrie

Thank you so much for doing such a good job with looking after our house, pool and garden while we were away. We really appreciate it and it’s just wonderful to know we have such a trustworthy, reliable person we can turn to.

Johanna, Ashgrove

I cannot speak highly enough of the professional service provided by Fiona McLeod at A Walk in the Park. She has looked after my two very large mastiffs on a number of occasions when we have gone away on holidays. Fiona came and walked my 55kg Female English Mastiff (which is not an easy task), and provided treats, cuddles and pats for my older dog who was unable to go walking. She fed them both each day and attended to their every need and my requests. Fiona sent photos everyday so we knew the dogs were happy, comfortable and well looked after.

The service is first class and one I would recommend to any pet owner who wants reassurance that their pets will be looked after the way you would want them to be. I had 100% confidence when going away knowing they were in the best of care. Thank you Fiona.

We have used A Walk in the Park on numerous occasions to feed and walk our dog when we're away. Fiona does a great job and sends us photo updates daily. Our dog is always very relaxed when we return home, which is testament to the fantastic care he receives.

It is such a relief to know that our kitty is well looked after and she doesn't have to leave home while we are away on short holidays. The text and photo updates are really comforting. Our kitty loves Fiona and most recently when she stayed in the Pet Resort for 4 weeks, Jessie and Bruce became firm friends. I would recommend A Walk in the Park to anyone that needs to have their pet looked after in a kind and caring environment.

A Walk in the Park really care for my pets. I have booked them many times over the years to pop in and care for my furry friends while I am away - either for a weekend or a two week holiday and I am informed of how they are going via text messages and photos. Great, caring, punctual, friendly and professional.

I would recommend A Walk in the Park to anyone searching for a professional and caring pet visiting service. Fiona took great care of my home, cats and chickens while I was away on holiday, providing regular text updates and photos of my pets having fun. I was a little anxious at first about hiring a pet carer, but my girls loved Fiona straight away which certainly took the worry out of going away. I returned home relaxed to find contented cats and clucky chickens. And to top it all off she had even brought my mail in and watered my plants. Many thanks!Calum, Kenmore
