One of Denise's happy dogs
Will yours be next?

Never happier then when chasing Rabbits!

We are delighted with what Denise provides for our dog – Rueben. He was never happy going into kennels, so the home option was ideal. We know (because he told us!) that Rueben was lovingly looked after. We can’t thank Denise enough – because we also enjoyed our holiday and were relaxed in the thought that Rueben was happy. We highly recommend Pet Royale.

Peter and Jenny Braidwood – Dunblane

" This company has been fantastic for me. My dog is not suitable for kennels, so home boarding has been the way to go. The prices of Pet-Royale are comparable with kennels, and the level of care and attention that the dog receives is far in advance of that offered by the very best kennels. The dog receives one-on-one attention, is never left unattended for more than 3 hours and walked regularly - a must for a manic spaniel. My dog is always happy to go to the home boarder - my only complaint is that he doesn't seem to miss me when I'm away! Denise is always very friendly and helpful. I have no hesitation in recommending Pet Royale to anyone considering home boarding their dog."
From Craig and Helen McIntyre on behalf of Ozzie, Bridge of Allan.

We love our dogs and were totally convinced that they would be miserable if my husband and I left them in a kennels to go on holiday . . . so we simply didn't go away. But we need a holiday . . . and then I heard of Pet-Royale . . . Denise sounded lovely on the phone and obviously knew about dogs. We arranged for Sassy and Arnie to spend two days with Denise as a trial. After we had left them I expected hourly a phone call to say they were miserable and stressed without me . . . NOT A BIT OF IT . . .in fact I don't think they missed me at all . . . when I arrived to pick up my dogs they were relaxed, happy and tired from being well walked . . . I swear they were disappointed at leaving. So thank you Denise for making it possible for us to go away on holiday . . . I know now I need not worry. From Gill Hunt, owner of Arnie and Sassy

Taz on her Doggy Day Care with Pet-Royale

"I have been using Pet Royale since last October to provide day care twice per week for my elderly dog. She is deaf, has partial vision, and some senility. This service has enabled me to go to work without having to worry about her and has provided her regular day carers (my parents) with some respite as she cannot be left on her own for any great period of time. Pet Royale has been invaluable to me and I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone. I have never had any worries about leaving my pet with any of their carers.
P.S I've also been really impressed with the efficiency of the service and with how quickly it was all set up and monitored.  I am very happy with how quickly she settled and it is a weight off my shoulders to have this care."

"Since moving to the area a year ago I have used Pet-Royale on numerous occasions due to business and leisure trips. My dogs, cats and poultry are always extremely well cared for, and look on Denise as their second Mum. come home to a clean, tidy home, lounge curtains closed and my sidelights on - very welcoming after a tiring journey. I could not wish for better service than this"

Baxter, Male Shar Pei Dog

"I cant rave enough about Pet Royale services. My Sharpei is very territorial and when he first met Denise was rather hostile as he is to most, therefore kennels were not an option. Denise won him round and he adores her. When I go on holiday I have peace of mind in the knowledge that my boy will be spoilt rotten and happy. Aunty Denise also comes twice a week for walks which means I dont have to rush home from work"
Colleen Scott Bannockburn on behalf of Baxter

Cassie on her return to Pet-Royale Home Boarding

" A wonderful service.  I was let down the night before my holiday by my pet sitter and phoned Pet-Royale late at night to see if they could help.  They were wonderful, very friendly, very professional and a real pleasure to deal with.  Within an hour they had arranged a home for Cassie.  I felt they asked all the right questions, in order to know about Cassie's needs and I went on holiday very reassured that my dog was getting the best care.  I will be using their services again, although not in such a rush next time! I will certainly be recommending their service." 

Sara Streager, Glasgow, on behalf of Cassie.
PS Cassie is having a great time with Denise at the moment and, yes, Sara did book in advance!

Thanks for looking after Hamish and Bella (our cats) whilst we were on holiday. They seemed fine and contented to be in their own home when we came back - and of course that is what we were looking for! You gave us confidence that they would be well looked after and we will certainly be using your services in the future. We would be happy to recommend you to any friends with pets in this area.

Susan McCreath, Bridge of Allan.

Misty, after a long hot walk!

Denise has walked my chocolate labrador, Misty for nearly 3 years on a weekly basis.  She is concientious, caring and efficient - above all Misty loves her and I totally trust her.  Denise is very personal in her approach and an excellent communicator should the need arise.  Misty is always pleased to see her and has been known to abandon me in preference for Denise if we see her when out walking! I can wholeheartedly and unreservedly recommend Denise.
Janet Hicklin and Misty.

"We have used Pet-Royale a few times now and each time the service was second to none. Denise is so obliging and professional.  Her friendly manner also makes you want to deal with her again and again.  The dogs were well cared for and came home happy and healthy. Thank You!"
Inga Laurenson, Stirling, on behalf of Kali (Hungarian Vizsla) and Nova (Rhodesian Ridgeback).

We were delighted at the way you looked after young Purdey and elderly Nico when we were away at a wedding in Brighton.  We could tell the dogs just loved you, Denise, on first meeting - you are a natural.  They are hoping we go away again soon as they loved their long walks! 
Linda and Kevin Fitzgerald, Killin, Scotland







We would just like to say how very happy we were with the care and service we received when we contacted Pet-Royale regarding the looking after of our elderly toy poodle, Pepsi.  From first contact until the end of his holiday we were given peace of mind that he was in good hands.  He looked so well and relaxed when he returned to us.  We are certainly happy to recommend Pet-Royale as the people to look after your pet.

Denise walked my dog Bruno on most weekdays for well over four years.  I quickly became assured that Bruno was being walked in a reliable, safe and controlled environment that established a happy, trusting relationship between Bruno and Denise.  Denise and Russell also looked after him in their own home when I was away on holiday - which Bruno loved as it was a "home from home" for him and I never had a moment's worry about his well-being.

Richard and I met Denise when we moved to her village and we were impressed by the way she looked after the dogs in her care - out in all weathers but always having a good time and making sure the dogs were happy.  When we got our own puppy Peggy, a golden labrador, we wanted Denise to look after her too and it was great knowing we had someone to take care of Peggy on those occasions when we wanted a weekend break or had to be away from home during the day.

We are delighted to recommend Denise as in the years we have known her she has shown herself to be reliable, enthusiastic and to genuinely love and care for the animals she was looking after.  Higgins always had a wonderful time on his walks and loved going to stay as he knew he would be having a wonderful time and having plenty of fun, play, walks and exercise.

Hello, my name is George.  I'm a really happy dog and my owners think the world of me.  But I must admit to looking forward to their holidays, because I can go on mine! I really enjoy my stays with Denise and Russ, a real home from home.  The time passes so quickly and I always feel the centre of attention.  I'm sure that any other dog that stays with them will have a great time too. Love George X PS If you want an extra treat, the old "paw in the air" trick never fails!

I first met Denise Ward some years ago, because of her affinity with dogs, and from experience, can guarantee that any dog given into her care will be safe and happy. My own dog Poppy would confirm this if she could - she is very fond of Denise and misses her when she's away. I am happy to confirm this comment verbally if required.

Denise walked Hollie for a couple of years.  Hollie always wagged her tail with excitement when Denise arrived to take her for a walk.  It was obvious that Denise had a great love of animals, even building a play area for our rabbits when caring for them whilst we were on holiday.  Denise is always most trustworthy and very reliable.

Digby and Ollie

Truly "doggy people". We first met Denise two years ago when she and her husband Russell looked after Digby and Ollie whilst we went on holiday.  We felt totally confident that our "boys" would be well looked after and safe. A real "home from home" - this is very important to us as Digby is epileptic and stress can bring on fits. Digby's medication was administered daily to our instructions without any problems.  Ollie just needed plenty of fuss which the two of them received in great quantities.  They both love going to stay with Denise and Russ and we have no hesitation in recommending Denise's services to anyone choosing an alternative to kennels.

Millie - One of Denise's Happy Dogs

We cannot recommend Denise highly enough to care for your pets; she is honest, caring and very reliable. Millie is our Labrador Retriever, who is 4 years old. Denise regularly walked Millie during the week when we were at work and school. Millie has also stayed with Denise and her family, when we have been on holiday. Not only did Denise become one of Millie's best friends, but a friend of the family as well.
