"I have known Alberto since he stablished his dog walking services in Chiswick and I am more than happy to recommend his services to my clients. Alberto not only walks your dog but he works in their training and behaviour with a very professional approach. We both work closely when it comes to the health of the dogs in his care as he is very experience in spotting common dog health issues as well as being trained in first aid for dogs."
"Twice a week, around 10.30 in the morning Alberto beeps the horn on his car and my dog Charlie starts wagging his tail furiously and running up and down the floor in anticipation of his walk. I think that says it all. It’s Charlie’s favourite part of the week. Alberto takes incredibly good care of him. Over the past few months he has worked tirelessly with Charlie, a rescue dog, to get him used to other dogs and slowly it is working. I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Messy Paws. It’s personal, friendly, caring and thoroughly professional. I think so, and more importantly, so does Charlie."
"I would highly recommend Messy Paws for dog walking and day care. Alberto has walked my dog for many years. As he is now getting older, and slowing up, he is in day care with Lydia. She is so kind and patient with him, adapting the day for his needs. He loves them both. It is very reassuring to know that my dog is so well look after when I am not there."
"As every dog owner will know, I had to leave my Didier for the 1st time to a dog career for a week and I had a lot of anxiety.
Alberto's name came across when visiting my vet. He was highly recommended.
And what a great decision I made to contact him.
Alberto is more than a dog career. He really cares about the dog well being and the owner's worries.
Didier was so happy when I took it back and I learn a lot with Alberto's advise.
Big thank you and will come back to you without doubt."
"Guys, Barney had such a great time with you both and was so happy when we came to pick him up, it was probably hard for him to say bye to you and all his New friends... thanks Alberto and Lydia for taking such great care of Barney!"
"My dog Dido has been walked by Alberto and Lydia 5 days every week since she arrived in this country from Italy as a 4 month old puppy. She is now 2 and a happy and socialised dog but I could not possibly manage her by myself as she is strong and boisterous. So it is good to have Messy Paws for her to let off steam with so I can enjoy her myself after she has been exercised and is a bit quieter. I hope this arrangement will go on for ever."
"I am thrilled with the service provided by Alberto, and Messy Paws. Brodie adores his walks with Alberto and always runs to greet him excitedly at the door. Brodie always comes home very happy, but most importantly, as a super tired pup! Messy paws provides the perfect environment for Brodie to socialise with other dogs, and he gets an extra healthy dose of exercise. Alberto is kind, patient and professional. He instills a good sense of discipline in Brodie (he is often a handful!), and I trust him completely with my little pup out on his walks. I would highly recommend Messy Paws."
"I couldn’t be happier with Messy Paws. Jasper is always so excited to see Alberto and enjoys his walk with all the other Messy Paws pals. I would highly recommend Messy Paws as it offers a reliable dog walking service."
"Our neighbour recommended Alberto and we are so glad he did. When he comes to the house Chester always runs to the door and is ready for his days adventures. I know that when I get home there is always one tired but very happy dog. I highly recommended using Messy Paws."
"I don’t know what we’d do without Alberto! Our dog loves him - and I love all the training advice he’s given me these past few months. I only wish I’d found him earlier!"
"Alberto has been kind and patient with Barney, having walked him since a puppy.As well as the walks he has also given us great tips about training , and other advice essential for first time dog owners. Would throughly recommend"
"I cannot be happier ! I was desperately looking for a dog walker when Alberto came across. He treated my dogs as if they were his own even when they are not too easy to handle, he managed to make them feel loved and protected in every situation."
"I can't recommend Alberto enough! He is a natural with dogs, offering them a variety of different walks in local parks and taking incredibly good care of them. He has been a great help with my dog which he has been walking since she was a puppy... and helping on some training advice too! The dogs always seem relaxed and happy in his company and it is clear he takes throughly good care of them all."
"Alberto looked after our precious, little 18 month old Westie, Alfie for two weeks whilst we were on our summer holidays. I know it must have been good for Alfie as he now gives Alberto a tremendous welcome whenever we meet him walking his dogs in the park. Alberto picked up and dropped off before and after our holiday and generally offered a very professional and caring service and I would definitely recommend him to anybody who wants their dogs to be properly looked after whilst they are away."
"Alberto has been walking Ruby, our Australian labradoodle since she was 5 months old! Ruby is so excited to see Alberto for her morning and afternoon walks every week. She has so much fun, adventure, and play- she always comes back a tired puppy! He has been instrumental in her training, care and socialising with other dogs. Alberto's professionalism and expertise is so evident in everything he does.
Thank you for everything!"
"I first met Alberto a few years ago, walking my Irish Terrier, Ruby, around Chiswick Park. At that time, I did not use him as a dog walker, but as conversation with Alberto was easy and interesting I enjoyed the walks we shared whenever our paths happened to cross in the park.
I had presumed I would always be able to walk Ruby, but after becoming ill, last autumn, I suddenly found I was unable to walk her myself.
It was a great relief to know I could phone Messy Paws and that Ruby would be safe, happy and well looked after. Because we had all walked together; I knew Alberto to have a calm and relaxed manner with the dogs and a sensible and natural way of handling them.
What I didn’t know was how much more confident and sociable Ruby would become. I thought I had been doing the best thing I could walking her myself every day… but I think being with a larger group of animals, experiencing new and different ways has been very good for her. She could be a little timid, especially around larger dogs, but since walking with messy paws her confidence has grown and I have definitely notice an improvement in this behaviour.
I have found Alberto thoughtful and reliable and I have no hesitation in recommending Messy Paws."
"Alberto has been walking my boxer for about 18 months. He collects the dog at a set time, takes him off for a good couple of hours and brings him back, worn out and content. Chancellor looks up to Alberto as the pack leader and is always extremely excited when he calls at the house or we see him in the park when I am walking him.
I am very, very pleased with the service Alberto provides who is reliable and trustworthy. He is firm and caring with Chancellor and I would highly recommend him to care for your precious companion."
"I first bumped into Alberto while he was dog walking in my local park and observed how well he got on with his charges. Messy Paws have now been doing the day time walk for my two dogs, a Weimaraner and a Boston Terrier, for some 5 months. The dogs are always happy to see Alberto when they hear him call their names from the front door and they enjoy going to the park in his estate car where they can look out of the windows, rather than in an enclosed van. Alberto takes the dogs to a number of different local parks, so they get plenty of variety. If the dogs arrive back wet or muddy, Alberto takes a moment to towel them over to avoid mess in the house. Alberto is friendly, professional, punctual and extremely experienced in handling dogs. I have already recommended him to some friends."
"I would highly recommend Messy paws who want their dog to have fun and loved. Our Lab Bambi loves Alberto when he take her out for walks on regular basis. She stayed with Alberto for weeks this Christmas holiday and she was very happy doggy! We didn't feel sad or worried leaving bambi because we knew she will be loved and looked after very well by Alberto. He is trustworthy and 100% reliable."
"Toby is a regular client of messy paws! Not only does Alberto consistently deliver home an exhausted and happy pooch, he will always try his best to accommodate your request... Very reliable, hard working and completely in love with his dogs... We're very lucky!"
"My husband and I moved to Chiswick a few months ago and we have been so lucky to find Alberto to take care of Goldie, our very energetic 1 year old puppy. It's no exaggeration to say that Goldie looks forward to seeing Alberto all week. She has so much fun on their group walks, and she always comes home tired and happy - what more could we ask for! Alberto not only gives Goldie good exercise, but also provides the discipline she needs as she continues to mature. Since we've started with Alberto, we've noticed Goldie has been better at recall while at the park, and has stopped pulling so much on the lead during our walks. We use Alberto a few times each week and would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking for a dog walker!"
"Alberto is very reliable and trustworthy. My dog Bertie loves him and I feel totally confident that when he is in his care he is safe and cared for to the very best standards."
"I am a very happy customer of Messy Paws and have been for over two years now. Alberto is accommodating and very considerate. He is reliable, prompt and has never let me down. He looks after our dog very well and clearly gets attached to all his canine charges! When our (high maintenance) dachshund had a serious operation on his back, Alberto worked with me on his rehabilitation and reworked his schedule to help with getting Dennis back to normal. This meant smaller walks without other dogs and 1:1 care and attention to ensure he healed slowly and carefully. Alberto is flexible and a pleasure to deal with and I have no hesitation at all in recommending his services if you are looking for a caring and professional dog walker and carer."
"We highly recommend Messy Paws. 100% reliable & trustworthy. And even more importantly our dog Wisley is very happy being walked by Alberto and with her Messy Paws pals.
Camilla & David Carter (& Wisley!)"
"My dog Watson has always been amazing but he is even better by being able to spend time with Alberto at Messy Paws during the week. He is trained, socialised and loved so that I can do the things I need to do with my week. Alberto is very helpful when we speak and I mention things I may be concerned with or happy with. He always seems to know why things are happening. My vet agrees whenever I take my puppy for a check up that the advice I am being given is correct. I would and do recommend this company to anyone that loves their animals as much as we do."
"Alberto is totally reliable, great at communicating any changes to the plan and most importantly our black lab Monty always waits eagerly for his walks and returns for a long nap afterwards."
"I just wanted to drop you a line to say how grateful I was for the day you looked after Jenkins. I was very impressed with the way you walked him outside the whole day, even though it rained, but you made sure he had a great excursion. I would be very happy to recommend Messy Paws to any client needing dog walking services."
