Highly recommend Lisa, she looked after our cat George in his own home, visiting him twice a day and feeding and fussing him lots! We were nervous of leaving George whilst we went away on holiday but Lisa kept us posted with lots pictures and messages to reassure us he was OK. When we returned home George seemed very happy and contented! Thank you Lisa, we’ll definitely be back in touch for your services in the future! 👍😺
5* from us! Thank you Lisa for taking great care of Buddy. Receiving updates; pics/videos was really lovely. We’d recommended Lisa who is obviously a very caring person who had Buddy’s best interests at heart. Buddy says say hi to Colin 😊
I would thoroughly recommend Lisa for her excellent home boarding service, our Sprocker Spaniel Molly was very well looked after when she stayed with Lisa. Lisa is thoroughly committed to looking after her boarders and always gives 100%. While we were away on holiday the daily updates and video’s of Molly were enjoyable and Molly is always happy to see Lisa which fills us with confidence that she enjoys her holiday too and of her excellent care-well done Lisa.
Lisa is a godsend, she took such good care of our 7 furrbabies whilst we were away recently. It really helped me relax and enjoy our holiday even more knowing they were in such good hands. Thank you so much from all of us. xx
Amazing home from home for Tink, whether day boarding or full board, long stays or just overnight/one daytime. She loves her walks too. Auntie Lisa is certainly her favourite person
Lisa has cared for our dog Maggie regularly over the last 12 months, including some overnight stays and weekends. Maggie is always comfortable to be left with Lisa and is always happy when we collect her which is a great sign. Lisa takes her on lots of lovely walks, provides a real home from home and genuinely seems to care about her. We love receiving her regular updates which gives us peace of mind whilst we are away and reassures us that Maggie is not missing us in the least!!
Lisa is fantastic with the dogs and they clearly love the walks with her. I feel complete secure when I have to entrust them to Lisa – and I wouldn’t let just anyone care for my furry babies!
L H recommends Paws a While with me 26 September 2019 · Couldn’t have asked for a better home for our dog to stay in whilst we were away, made our holiday better knowing he was being so well looked after! We definitely enjoyed our pupdates! Thank you
Wonderful Lisa , We can’t Thankyou enough for all your help with Star and Bear . 5
what a lovely lady! and brilliant with dogs. Rosie has just had her first week with Lisa and we will definitely be back. we love the facebook updates and contact throughout the week. You can clearly see that Lisa treats the dogs as her own and they are given plenty of fuss and attention. and thank you for the treats to take home. an extra special addition! cannot recommend highly enough
Lisa has looked after Riddler a number of times now and we would never look elsewhere for a kitty sitter! She takes time to meet and familiarise herself with your pet so she can take the best care and even keeps in touch with pictures and updates….which makes things a lot easier when being away from home!! I would thoroughly recommend Paws a While with me to anyone looking for a friendly, genuine, trustworthy and caring pet sitting service!
We leave Millie knowing she is truly loved and looked after by the wonderful Lisa. The Facebook updates are great to see. I’d highly recommend Paws a While with me to anyone. Xx

Lisa was brilliant with our border collie Shep. She fitted us in very last minute while we were on holiday in the area so we could go to a local area that didnt allow dogs. Shep had a brilliant day and I started off feelig guilty that we had left him but it turned out he had a fabulous doggy day out!! Thanks very much!

I highly recommend Paws a while with me. I have used Lisa’s pop in services for around 18 months until recently when I lost my eldest dog.
She is kind, compassionate, has rearranged her schedule at short notice when my shifts have changed to accommodate me.
Lisa has administered eye drops for my old dog and contacted me when he wasn’t well.On the days when she came I had peace of mind.
offering condolences and staying in touch since losing him has meant a lot.X

Our dog Kilt spent Christmas at Lisa’s and has recently returned from a 16 night stay with her. We are so pleased to have found her as we have peace of mind that our girl is happy and well cared for. It is a home from home for her with lots of love, fun with other friendly dogs and lovely forest walks. We enjoy seeing the regular photo updates.
BF – February 2019
Lisa has looked after my cats several times over the past few years. She always does such a great job and I know that they are in very safe hands. I would highly recommend her services.
L A – February 2019
Lisa has looked after our hounds a few times now while we are away on holiday and seems to understand their needs and we get regular pics which we really like to receive while we are away. Keep up the good work Lisa & we will see you soon.
K W – February 2019 5 star Facebook review
Lisa has taken care of our cat Minkey on a couple of occasions and I would highly recommend her business. She‘s completely dedicated to the animals’ welfare, and gives regular updates on how things are going. Will definitely use Paws a While again K W – February 2019
Thanks again for the times you looked after the pack, especially timid Mindy who is much happier now. You provide a very caring and 100% professional service.
AL – February 2019
I would like to whole heartedly recommend Lisa Morris of Paws A While With Me for her dog boarding. Over the last year Lisa has looked after my dogs Zak a bouncy, loveable lurcher and also Cassie who was my old lady border terrier, sadly no longer with me. Both dogs had very different needs and Lisa made sure they were catered for. Now it’s just Zak and a great recommendation from him as he saw her at the DFR dog day and leapt up to give her a big cuddle and a sloppy kiss. I can’t recommend Lisa enough for her love and care of my dogs. Thanks Lisa.
P M- February 2019
Celtic Cattery would like to thank Lisa for her professionalism whilst covering both Colin and myself for a few hours. Excellent service and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend for anyone looking for a bespoke pet sitting.
We have been using Paws A While With Me for about 4 years now, as soon as we met Lisa, we knew that this would work for us and we have not been wrong. We had used other services before Lisa started the company, but occasionally there may had been some “niggles” or lack of confidence in leaving our boys with them, usually only the once! From the very start, our then 2 dogs and us humans took to her immediately, due to her passion and knowledge for animal care. Every single walk is now tailored to our “old boys” needs, and he is just in love with Lisa, both for boarding and walks. Going on holiday is an option again, thanks to the reassurance we have from being able to leave him with Lisa. We can’t recommend her services highly enough, although we really want to keep this to ourselves!!!
A & -A February 2019
What I recommend is that I know Lisa will look after Marmite as I do. I know he will get some lovely walks, hugs and lots of treats, what more could a lab want! Thanks Lisa!
AB – February 2019
I have a crazy spaniel called Scooby and he absolutely adores Lisa Morris! He’s been going to Lisa twice a week for a year now, she arrives and he races for the back of her van without a backward glance. He has the very best days, socialising, playing and going on wonderfully adventurous walk in the forest with his doggy friends. He always comes home tired, hungry and happy! As for Lisa herself? She has become one of my favourite people, she’s so kind and caring. Lisa has helped me out of a sticky situation more than once without hesitation. I absolutely adore Lisa too! I would recommend Lisa and her service to everyone, whether it’s a home visit, a walk or day and night boarding and her place, which is a total home from home experience. I don’t trust many people with my dog, Lisa is top of the list.
CO February 2019
We have known Lisa for several years now – she regularly walks our springer spaniel when myself and my husband are at work and we have used her home boarding on several occasions. Lisa is a dedicated, committed professional who provides first class care. The home boarding Lisa provides is second to none providing a home away from home and gives us the confidence that our girl is having the most wonderful holiday herself. She provides a safe secure environment and our girl is always so pleased to see her. Lisa provides daily updates along with photographs which is such a reassurance. Skye really loves home boarding with Lisa, she provides a lovely environment and will follow any direction from us in terms of feeding times, preferred routines etc. Without Lisa we would be lost (as would Skye), the dedication to her work is just amazing and we cannot express how much we value what she provides.
LR – February 2019
I have no hesitation in writing a review for Lisa Morris and her business Paws A While With Me. I cannot rate Lisa’s support for my English Springer Spaniel enough. Sprocket is a very much loved family pet who we adore and there’s no one other than Lisa that we trust enough to look after her when we go on holiday. Lisa’s love of animals is obvious in the way she cares for sprocket and she always goes above and beyond to keep us informed of any issues or asks us questions if she’s not sure about anything to ensure Sprocket has the best experience during her stay. Leaving Sprocket in Lisa’s care is always a bit stressful for us, but she always reassures us and keeps us updated on daily basis. This allows us to enjoy our holiday with complete peace of mind knowing Sprocket is being looked after in a safe and happy environment and being treated like one of the family. We always come back to collect a healthy and happy little dog. I have no hesitation in stating that Paws A While With Me is a fantastic example of a well run local business. Lisa is incredibly kind and she’s a true professional. I can’t thank her enough for the support she gives us with Sprocket – she’s one in a million!
M – February 2019
Tess has stayed with Lisa in her home many times. Tess really enjoys staying with Lisa as she gets plenty of lovely walks in the forest, as well as lots of love and attention. Lisa always keeps us updated with photos and Facebook messages and we thoroughly recommend Lisa to anyone wanting a great second home for their dog.
KA – February 2019
Ruddy brilliant! Lisa has been a lifesaver for years and all the animals love her! Can‘t recommend highly enough! JAA – September 2018
Lisa does a fantastic job at caring for our cats whilst we are away, very reliable and trustworthy. They are always content when we come home rather than being anxious and scared like they were when they used to go to the cattery.
H M R – September 2018
We would like to thank Lisa for looking after our dog Ramsay on our Wedding day in September, she did an amazing job. Nothing was too much effort for her, picking Ramsay up from home and bringing him later in the day to the venue for photos.
R – February 2019
I cannot rate Lisa highly enough. I have an elderly German Shepherd (12 1/2) and a Labrador. As such I use Lisa’s pop in service as they need a comfort break if our working pattern falls that they are going to be left alone for a period of time.Lisa does so much more than ‘pop in’ To them. She plays scent games, gives them fuss, she will give medication and feed them if needed which is often the case with the GSD which takes the worry away for me.They absolutely love her. She is very kind, caring and capable. I have often had to ask at short notice due to a change in circumstances and she has always fitted us in.M B – September 2018
Fortunately we found Lisa when we relocated to the forest 4 months ago. Due to different working hours the doggies need some extra attention sometimes, it’s worked out brilliantly, they have walks and pop in visits depending on work hours. They’ve also had home boarding when we’ve been away.Highly recommended, it’s been excellent and saved us a lot of stress so far living In the forest!Thank you so much Lisa
C V C – September 2018
Thank you so much lisa you have helped me out a few times sometimes at short notice.I never have to worry as I know my little Charlie is safe & will always be looked after .It’s lovely leaving her & knowing she is happy & loves the family. It’s great having updates how she is also whilst we are away via pictures & messages.She is treated the same as if she where at home. Sometimes I go to pick her up & she doesn’t want to leave.Charlie loves Aunty lisa. & enjoys good walks a day. A beautiful garden which is safe to wander in. & lisa treats them all so very special. I would highly recommend them. L G – September 2018
Such a professional lady and our two labs love her. Takes all the worry about leaving dogs to long alone. Thankyou lisa. X D H – September 2018
Lisa has looked after our German Shepherd several times now who loves it there. She keeps us up to date with news and pictures while we’re away. Our GSD always comes back tired having enjoyed socialising with other dogs, exploring her lovely garden (plenty big enough to have a good run around in) and having many adventures around the forest.Lisa has been very professional and always checks documentation is up to date, which is very reassuring. R S – September 2018
Millie loved her long weekend with Lisa…in fact I’m sure she would of stayed given the chance. A real home from home and it’s clearly evident how much Lisa cares about all the animals she looks after. The regular photos and videos are a bonus …we will definitely use her again.. x F M – September 2018
I cannot thank Lisa enough , my dog Tess came back to us happy and content ! Lisa is a very caring person who I felt very confident leaving my dog with her , many thanks
K A – September 2018
Lisa looked after our kitten Daisy for a week and we couldn’t have asked for better service. Daisy was fussed and played with twice a day and we received lots of lovely photos and updates while we were away. Lisa gave us real peace of mind, fantastic experience and we will definitely book again! H P – September 2018
Fantastic service. I was very nervous about leaving my two cats for a week, but Lisa made me feel comfortable and confident that everything would be taken care of. We received lots of lovely photos of our boys, which really helped us to relax and enjoy our time away.Normally, when we go away and family take care of them, we return home to two stroppy cats, but this time there was none of that. Our boys were happy to see us and didn’t punish us too badly.Thankyou Lisa x G S – September 2018
Complete peace of mind. We were worried about leaving our two indoor cats, who are quite nervous and used to lots of attention, luckily we found Lisa or we may not have gone away at all. The regular updates and photos assured us that they were happy and contented, both have different needs and personalities but were catered for well. When we returned they were pleased to see us and no sulking! Thinking of booking another break, as long as Lisa is able to offer her services!
K D – September 2018
My two boys Beau and Joe have just come back from Paws A While and they seem all the better for it. Two full days and an overnight stay in lovely beds and comfy settees. I can tell they thoroughly enjoyed their walks, treats, spoilt time, play time with Colin, Lily and Scooby. We will be back for sure as it was definitely a home from home experience. S T – September 2018
My dog Kilt had her second stay with Lisa a couple of weeks ago and seemed very happy there. Real home from home. She’s almost 11 and loves her bed. She has several throughout our house and obviously enjoyed stealing Colin’s! Lovely forest walks and socialisation with other friendly dogs. Lisa has a very professional and caring approach. B F – September 2018
What can we say?! This was Mabel’s first time away from us. She has just turned one and Lisa was amazing with her. We had lots of lovely updates on how Mabel was settling in (Lisa checked we were happy to have them while on holiday which of course we were) .Lisa made such an effort with Mabel while she stayed with her, they went on the most beautiful walks and Lisa allowed her to enjoy the beauty of the forest off the lead and explore every muddy puddle there was to find : ) It was so reassuring to see Mabel so relaxed and having so much fun while we were away! I would definitely recommend Lisa and would have no worries at all sending Mabel back for another holiday (I think she had just as much fun as we did or perhaps maybe more : ) ) Thank you Lisa! B J – September 2018
I can’t thank Lisa enough for how well was looked after our puppy (read that as a 37kg just over a year old cheeky monster:). Bailey had a brilliant time and came home all happy and relaxed.Thank you, Lisa, very very much for all your patience with him and the lovely updates. You made our weekend away so much less stressful. Thank you XX L M – September 2018
Can’t thank you enough for looking after Alfie so well for us while we were away, he certainly was a spoilt pooch!! Kept up to date while we were away which is amazing was great to know that Alfie was being good and having a fantastic time without us!! Fantastic A+ service highly recommended xx
C M-K – September 2018
GJ This is the second time Lisa has looked after our dog Hugo, we had never left him for so long but were relaxed seeing the films and photos of him happy and out and about. Lisa is very animal friendly and Hugo seemed to be very at home with her. 100% would recommend Lisa and I’m sure Hugo is looking forward to his next stay
Rachels Rambling Rovers– As a dog walker myself, when I broke my ankle I wanted to make sure my two springer spaniels were taken out by someone who would give them the exercise they needed. Lisa has a spaniel of her own so I knew my two would have great company and some fabulous walks which they have done for the 2 months I have been unable to take them out. Lisa’s rates are amazing, she is excellent at communicating when she would be picking my boys up and I also saw lots of photos of the fun they had on their walks. Lisa will look after your dogs like they’re her own and show them a fab fun time while making sure their wellbeing always comes first. Highly recommend *****
TF– We’ve been and collected our fur baby today and she’s had the time of her life! She’s curled up in her bed right now after a very busy couple of weeks getting spoiled by Lisa, having fun in the woods with Colin & Co! Would definitely recommend if you are looking for someone who offers a very cosy doggy home from home! Thanks Lisa, you not only made Mockie’s Christmas, you made ours too because we could relax knowing that she was in very safe hands having such a great time! xx
“Archie enjoyed his first stay with Lisa. We appreciated the pre homestay familiarisation which put our minds at rest before his initial stay. He came home as if he had not been away and unlike his previous stays in Kennels had a good voice….we believe he had a great time and his recall and social skills were far improved after his visit. We have already booked his next stay!! THANK YOU LISA” KT
Thank you so much for looking after our beagle girls for us again. They love coming over to stay with you and obviously feel very much at home. We know that they are in safe hands and are being loved and cared for as much as they are at home. Lisa you’re the best xx
An amazing service. I would highly recommended Lisa’ s home boarding. She was very patient with Finn and worked with us to ensure his exercise regime was followed.Lisa put us totally at ease from the initial visit and provided regular updates on Finn throughout his stay,which we loved and thoroughly appreciated. Home boarding has helped Finns socialization.Thank you once again for letting Finn share you home..We will be back if you’ll have us-
Lisa looked after our cat Emily for the first time this year. Emily is very shy and doesn’t let strangest to touch her. However, she obviously loves Lisa. She was more relaxed and happy after we came back than she usually is. She was obviously pampered. She was fed, watered, brushed and entertained. Lisa came to see her everyday. I am really grateful to Lisa for looking after our Emily so well. I would like to book her for the next year if possible. Highly recommended.
I cannot recommend Lisa highly enough. She looked after our puppy milo for 10 days as if he were her own. Such a kind and compassionate lady who is passionate about her job. We are so very grateful to Lisa and her husband for all they did. The pictures and updates that lisa provided us with whilst we were away were really thoughtful and it was great to see that milo was having a great holiday too! THANK YOU SO MUCH!! Xxx
I haven’t left my cat with anyone for 6 years as he is a very timid puss and doesn t really like anyone but me.He was fine with Lisa popping in twice a day to feed him, I was amazed to hear that he had allowed her to play with him and stroke him, Marley just doesn’t let strangers touch him. He also ate well which was great as he did not the last time I left him. Lisa certainly has a magic touch where animals are concerned, and I strongly recommend her services. I will certainly have her to look after Marley again next time I go away.
Lisa was recommended to me by my daughter who often leaves her dog in Lisa’s very capable hands. Many many thanks Lisa for looking after Marley so well. xx
Can’t sing your praises highly enough ……. purrfect !
Lisa and her small business, Paws with Me is a gem to be found in the Forest of Dean. My first meeting with Lisa regarding having our puppy Coco, a cockapoo for home boarding made me feel totally at ease in the knowledge that Coco would be wonderfully looked after and made to feel like one of the Family. Lots of wonderful walks on the doorstep, a safe garden to explore not to mention love and cuddles when required. Our trip abroad in October was made all the happier when photos were posted on the internet of Coco enjoying her adventures as we enjoyed ours. I would have no hesitation in recommending Lisa’s Home Boarding to anyone as being a safe, caring and perfect place for any dog to stay and feel Lisa very much deserves to be considered for a Business Award given he wonderful service she provides for Pet owners. S J March 2017
Lisa has been looking after our two cats now with daily feeding visits for nearly two years, sometimes just for a couple of days, sometimes for one or two weeks at a time. She is extremely efficient, friendly and professional. We have total confidence that Noah and Finn will be cared for very thoroughly and given plenty of attention and affection. Leaving cats in their own environment when you have to go away seems so much kinder, and with Lisa on hand this is undoubtedly the best choice for us. We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Lisa and the excellent Paws a While service. L M March 2017
We have a fabulous cat called Elfreda Beetle, aged 11 she is a rescue cat we have now had for 3 years. She is our first female cat and wow what a difference – she made it very clear at an early stage that catteries were not her thing. What to do? New to the area I resorted to the internet and followed my instincts which led me to Lisa’s website ‘Paws a While with Me’ where I read about her great professional experience and the wonderfully complimentary and warm references. Elfreda Beetle and Lisa met at our home and the decision was made, one of our finest! Lisa has now looked after EB five or six times from a few days to three weeks. She is professional, reliable, warm and delightful, she spends time with EB, plays with her and ensures her varied and ever changing menu requests are catered for ( yes EB is a spoilt cat). We now come home to a happy, contented and well cared for cat and have no concerns while we are away except that we miss her!We would recommend Lisa Morris and Paws a While with Me to anyone in the sure knowledge that the service provided is excellent in every respect. MJP February 2017
I would like to say that we feel so lucky to have found you to look after our cats and chickens.One of concerns moving to a new area was finding someone we felt truly comfortable with but as soon as I met you I knew you were perfect to look after our gang.
Since then you have looked after the gang numerous times and have been fantastic. The care and attention you give to each animal is great and we can go away knowing they are not only being looked after but truly cared for.
The extra touches like sending photos is so nice and you contact us with any concerns or advice.It is always lovely coming home knowing that the house has not been sat empty and that our post has been moved and that there will be a lovely message from you on the black board.
The reports you write are very comprehensive and gives us peace of mind as to how the gang have all been whilst we have been away.
Going away on holiday is even more of a pleasure now knowing that the gang are in your very safe and caring hands! Thank you for all you support and help 🙂 I M
Lisa has done a fantastic job looking after Paddington, so much so that he looks forward to his visits there and often doesn’t want to come home! Paddington is completely “at home” with Lisa and always has an amazing time being walked in the Forest. Additionally staying with other dogs has really helped him in socialising, he is now much calmer and happier when he meets other dogs while out on walks with us. Lisa is 100% reliable and works hard to keep all her clients (4 legs and 2) happy and confident. Thanks Lisa.
NC and Paddington – January 2017
Lisa has looked after my energetic beagle Puppy for daycare and walks while we have been away. We had an initial meeting at Lisa’s house and then he went for daycare, which he really enjoyed. She has also come to our house and walked him on a daily basis.
Lisa provides a reliable, high quality service which my dog loves. She is careful to get all the details right, not walk him off the lead with our say so and he is happy in her care. We can go away knowing he is well looked after.
We would always recommend Lisa for this service at her home or yours.

I would just like to say how much I value Lisa Morris for her wonderful doggy skills! She has looked after our old dog and our pug with equal attention. I would recommend her to anyone. C S
I am an incredibly fussy pet owner and having three dogs who all need such different care I have never before trusted anyone outside family and close friends to look after them in my absence. Lisa is fabulous. She immediately puts you and your own at ease. She is happy to chat to you about your Pets needs and works around them and you. Her notes and updates set your mind at rest too. She’s wonderful with all of my dogs and I trust her implicitly. Couldn’t recommend Paws a while with me highly enough.

Lisa is brilliant! She is professional and friendly and I had no concerns about leaving our cats in her care. The daily pop in visits suit our needs perfectly. Lisa took great care of the cats, bringing them treats and toys every day. She posted pictures and videos on Facebook so I could see how they were, and left a report card for me to read when I got home. I won’t hesitate to ask Lisa for pop in visits next time we go away, and I would definitely recommend her.
KF February 2017
Always been delighted with Lisa’s work. Knowing that our 3 cats get love, fuss and even play time with Lisa when she visits makes us go away on holiday without any worrying. Not only do the visits work out cheaper than our 3 going into a cattery, it also means our house is being opened, checked and even curtains and lights being altered. Our cats love Lisa to bits and we’re so pleased to use her services. 🙂
J D – Forest Traders – February 2017
Bella (our cocker spaniel) loves Lisa and so do we. We’d previously used a kennels but are so much happier knowing she is in Lisa’s home when we are away. As a young rescue dog, the socialisation with Colin and the other dogs is brilliant for her. When I had knee surgery, Lisa also walked Bella daily. Lisa really is a god send! I don’t think we will be going back to using a kennels.
H F- Owner Tudor Farmhouse,Clearwell October 2016
“I was looking for someone that would treat my dog as I do, with love, cuddles and the occasional treat and Lisa ticks all those boxes and much more. Lisa house/dog sat during our recent wedding and I felt so at ease leaving my furbaby that has never been kennelled with her. She regularly walks my pup and I’m very happy with this service-long may it continue! This lady will go the extra mile for you and your pet, no pun intended! S B February 2016
Thank you very much to Lisa for walking our labrador Pip, often at short notice and with such care and attention to her needs. Thank you too for the regular home boarding which she loves – and is almost sad to come home. You run a very caring and very professional service – thanks for all your help.
