"I thoroughly recommend Pets First to any pet owner. Ros looked after Henry for more than 6 years and her arrival was a highlight of Henry's day. She's totally reliable, flexible, hardworking and committed. And lovely too! "

Gill Godbold - Maidenhead
"Ros has been walking our little dog Monty since he was a small puppy of 4 months. Ros has an amazing natural ability and calm manner with dogs and this has certainly helped with training and behaviour during the time she has been walking Monty over the past 18 months. He is still a young dog but so well behaved now! In addition, Ros is 100% reliable, trustworthy and discreet and I canít recommend her highly enough. "

Angela Howell - Pinkneys Green

"Ros is the kindest and most caring person you could ever wish to meet. She walked Buffy for more than 5 years, was totally reliable, 100% trustworthy and went the extra mile. We couldn't have wished for more in someone who cared for and walked Buffy. An absolute star."

Annie Sullivan - Pinkneys Green

"Pets First and Ros, in a word, "Amazing". 
Never before have I met someone who is so committed and enjoys their job more than Ros. My two cats adore her (and she's also very popular with the houseplants too!), nothing is ever too much trouble. An honest, reliable, hardworking, and lovely lady. I know when I go away that Squeaky and Bonnie are in safe and loving hands."

Tracey Ruddock - Maidenhead

"I cannot recommend Ros highly enough for the care, kindness and patience she shows to our two cats.  They are part of our family and Ros treats them as her own. We could not wish for better!"

Rachel Ancliffe - Waltham St. Lawrence

"If you treat your pet as one of the family then using Ros at pets First to care for it will be the best decision you make. Ros has been walking our golden retriever for over two years and he adores her ( more than me most of the time!!) She is trustworthy, reliable, kind and above all will treat your pet with the utmost respect and care as if it was one of her own. I would highly recommend Ros and consider her a good friend."

Zoe Darling-Smith - Bray

"Ros has walked and looked after Pepsi, our Black Labrador for two years. Pepsi loves her.
She is totally reliable and trustworthy, providing an excellent service with love and commitment.
I would highly recommend Ros and Pets First... there is no one else for us."

Jenny Blythe - Maidenhead

"I am only too happy to recommend your services to others. The fact that you arrive in an unmarked car I rate as a plus point and I know Gordon will be well looked after by you. plus the fish as and when the need arises. I also know that the kitchen will look clean and tidy when I get back and that you will have cleared the mail and watered my house plants and pots. All in all an excellent service for which I once again thank you very much.."

Gill Watkins - Pinkneys Green

"Our cat Widget is a rescue cat and is nervous in new situations so we didn't want to put him through the stress of a cattery while we were on holiday. Ros from Pets First was recommended to us and on her visit to meet Widget she quickly put my mind at rest. Knowing that she was calling in each day to feed and stroke Widget meant that we could enjoy our holiday without worrying. On our return he was very happy and settled - we are so pleased to have found Ros as we know that if we are away Widget will be able to stay in his usual surroundings and have someone to check on him and give him some attention."

Rachel Andrew - Maidenhead

"Ros started walking Poppy, our Cocker Spaniel, at the beginning of 2008. She has proven to be exceptionally reliable, punctual and trustworthy. 
More than this she has an incredibly kind and caring nature with a great love and committment for animals. Poppy waits excitedly for Ros to arrive each day and always returns extremely happy and contented.
In addition to walking Poppy Ros has also looked after our two cats when we have been away and has always left the house spotless. In short Ros is one in a million."

Siobhan O'Neill - Pinkneys Green

"Thank you once again for your kindness and help with Gussie and Florence. They were both very happy and you gave them so much love and attention.
I shall miss you in London."

Marie Platford - Pinkneys Green

"Ros has walked and looked after Jake for quite a while now. Jake absolutely adores her and looks forward to her dog walking visits. 
I would highly recommend Pets First as they provide:- an excellent level of service, trust, reliability, flexibility and above all care of pets. They are in two words Top Notch."

Karen Henderson - Maidenhead

"I have used Ros on many occasions when we have been away for the day but needed someone reliable to walk our rescue dog Marley. 
Ros is truly professional and Marley loves her!  I don't like leaving a 16month old energetic lab/greyhound cross but know that Ros will give him the exercise he needs. 
Thank you Ros - I couldn't be without you."

Jane Miller - Maidenhead

"Ros, I can't thank you enough! Poppet is so happy, so different to how she is when we usually get back. We love the photo too! I really hope you can do our remaining holidays this year. It would be such a comfort"

Claire Howman - Bray


"I have chosen to hand the business over to Ros as I am confident she will always put the petsí best interests first and will be reliable and trustworthy.  Furthermore, I know she is committed to caring for all animals as she has carried out charitable work in recent years and she is dedicated to running Pets First as it has been for the past 4 years."

Sarah Baker, Pets First

"I have known Ros since she first came to work at the Gray Cancer Institute nearly 19 years ago. Since her professional output was almost always on target, questions about work such as: "How is the project progressing?" slowly turned into "How are your cats?". We shared an appreciation of moggies.
I have not minded too much that her notice board and hard drive are littered with photographs of cats; nor being badgered to buy raffle tickets or sign sponsorship forms for some good feline cause. I was at times bemused by some of her holiday destination choices though: spending a week at a cattery in January; or working 16 hour days in the Canary Islands helping with a 'neuter and release' scheme is not everyone's idea of a relaxing break.
She is happy to depend on her own initiative and is extremely resourceful when faced with all manner of difficulties. She can be relied upon not to give up when times are hard and answers elusive; I do not recall that she has ever left some task not completed. It is through her calm approach that I have come to believe that anyone involved with often infuriating computers should also, as a matter of course, like all animals and cats in particular!"

Prof. Borivoj Vojnovic, Head of Group, Gray Cancer Institute

"I have known Ros for quite a long time during her years of helping on a voluntary basis at Kitty Cat Rescue.  She has always been compassionate and caring about the welfare of the cats that came into the rescue and also about the ones that we found ourselves unable to help.  Ros was also involved with the administration of the rescue, editing our news letter and helping to deal with collection boxes.  I have always been able to rely on the fact that if Ros said that she would do something, it would be done."

Renee Edwards, Chair Kitty Cat Rescue, 1997 - 2005
