PHG Bognor Regis & Chichester – Testimonials

What Our Customers Say About Pets Homes & Gardens

“We have been using PHG for nearly 18 months now – mainly for boarding or regular walking of our two dogs. I think the best way of describing the care that Nigel and his mum provide is that if your pets board with them, they become part of the family whilst with them. Our two dogs absolutely love boarding with the team at PHG and that means we can go away without having to worry about them at all.

For walks at home, Nigel has keys to enter and leave the property, if we are not around. Again, it is clear from the response that the dogs when Nigel comes to the door, that they love being walked by him and it is equally clear that he loves taking them.

Nigel will always do his best to respond to last minute emergencies and recently extended his repertoire to feed our tropical fish whilst we were away for a few weeks – again no issues whatsoever – and Nigel kindly alerted us to a small issue that he was then able to resolve for us.

We can recommend using PHG without any hesitation and once you do – you will never want to use anyone else, as it makes those breaks away so much more relaxing when you know your pets are having just as good a time as you are!”

Mike and Julie, Chichester, January 2018

“Highly recommend. Caring, conscientious and totally trustworthy. You know you can leave your beloved pets in safe hands.”

Mrs Porter, Bognor Regis, January 2018

“Nigel has looked after our two rabbits a couple of times now, and each time we’ve got back home and they don’t appear to have missed us at all! All happy, healthy and well fed. I’d definitely recommend Nigel to anyone.”

Mrs Dillon-Thiselton, Flansham, January 2018

“We would highly recommend Nigel & PHG Bognor & Chichester. Maisie our west highland white terrier has boarded with PHG several times and always gets so much loving care and attention. It is reassuring for us to know that Maisie is in safe hands and being professionally looked after while on her holiday stay!”

Mr and Mrs Piatt, Bognor Regis, December 2017

“My dog Cooper spent a wonderful 2 weeks with Nigel and his mum Carole. He went out to the beach and on lots of walks every day. They sent me wonderful pictures of him having fun and relaxing at home. As he was having such a good time I thought he might not want to see me again! I would not hesitate to leave him with them again if the need arises. I cannot express how pleased I was their care of him and how happy he was while he was there. Many many thanks to both of you.”

Mrs Hampton, Bognor Regis, October 2017

“Nigel, thank you so much for looking after Alfie last week. It is great to leave our treasured pet with such a competent and caring person such as yourself and we both thank you very much for your kind attention to detail  and your reassuring comments throughout our holiday. Look forward to using you again.”

Mr T Bence, Aldwick, August 2017

“Nigel and Carole are amazing. Our Cocker Spaniel is over excited every time she sees Nigel knowing she’s going to enjoy a good few hours of walks and playtime. When she boards at Carole’s, it’s like being home from home giving us complete peace of mind, and Minnie a lot of fun.
I would recommend Nigel and Carole to anyone with a loved pet they’d like looked after the way they do. 

Nigel’s flexibility to take Minnie for a walk, stay a few hours, the day, or house sit, partnered with Carole’s boarding is an incredible offering – we wouldn’t have Minnie looked after by anyone else.”

Mr & Mrs C, Slindon, August 2017

“We have hired Nigel several times to look after our lovely moggies Charlie and Lola. His care and love for the cats is so reassuring while we are away. The cats are so comfortable with Nigel and they are so well looked after. The extra details on watering plants etc is so above the call of duty! Thanks Nigel and we have no problems in recommending his great service to look after your pets!”

Mr & Mrs Badman, Littlehampton, August 2017

“Nigel looked after my two cats when I was away on holiday. Nigel is completely professional and organised and put my mind at ease as soon as I met him. The cats were extremely well looked after by Nigel as was my house and I have already booked him for our next trip. Thank you so much Nigel.”

Heather, Middleton-On-Sea, March 2017

“I have a nervous and dog aggressive (fear based) puppy who I needed walking every other week as I wasn’t able to walk him due to me having a meeting. I needed someone that I could trust to not let him off lead AND to be walked on his own.

I have been looking for a dog walker for 4 weeks and contacted about ten. 7 never replied.. 1 refused walking my dog and the other charged a premium for more difficult dogs.. And the last one were Nigel and Carole; the dog walkers from heaven.

They went out of their way to make Bandit feel happy and comfortable with them. As he is a very anxious dog he is still a little reluctant to go at first BUT he comes home sooooooo HAPPY as if someone has given him 3 steaks and a whole chicken!!

I know Bandit like the back of my hand so I know when he’s stressed. Let me tell you not once when he came back from a walk with Nigel and Carole he was stressed! They clearly take good care of him and are so lovely with him.


V Sadri, Bognor Regis, January 2017

“Nigel is a thoroughly professional, caring and meticulous pet sitter who takes the time to get to know and understand the homes and the pets he works with. He is also utterly reliable. When staying at our home for a week he left the house as clean and immaculate as it was when we left – outstanding care of our all our pets and our home.”

Mr. & Mrs. B, Chichester, December 2016

“We hired Nigel to look after our little Cairn terrier for a couple of nights in October 2016, while we went abroad to visit friends. She took to him like her favourite long-lost uncle, and Nigel was very thorough in getting details about her routine, feeding, and health quirks. We even got a text message with photo, so were able to leave without worrying unduly. And the house was immaculate on our return. Highly recommend – and we’ll definitely be calling on his services again. Thanks so much, Nigel!”

J Ambrose, Flansham, November 2016

“Terry and I would like to thank you for looking after Bentley and Boo for us, we are so happy with your love for the dogs and kindness. Looking forward to our break in March in St Lucia and we can rest assured the dogs are happy with you, as are we.”

Mr & Mrs Moore, November 2016

“Nigel is amazing he looked after my furry family for two days. When you have 1 dog, 4 cats, 2 rabbits, and an outside pond the only answer was to ask him to stay and look after them in my home. I cannot thank Nigel enough I was over the moon with his updates as my dog has a slipped disc and one of my cats is deaf, so I always worry about leaving them. I cannot recommend him highly enough just give him a ring and any worries you may have will disappear after you have talked to him.”

Ms J Lowe, East Preston, October 2016

“Nigel is the Dr Dolittlte of the animal world, he has been walking Connor our lovely dog on a regular basis, who looks forward to his walkies with Nigel, who is a very kind soul with a love of animals, who keeps us well informed of his care on his visits. A Doggy tail wag thankyou from Connor x. Looking forward to lots of ball throwing woof woof!”

Mrs Clacy, Bognor Regis, August 2016

“Nigel is great. He is incredibly professional, considerate and thorough, but just as importantly he understands what it is like to have pets. Nigel looks after our cat Shadow, and the level of interest he shows in her care gives us huge confidence that she’s well looked after when we are away. Shadow also seems to really like him! It is great to be able to relax knowing that she is being well cared for in our absence.”

Ian Robinson, Fishbourne, July 2016

“Nigel recently house sat our 3 dogs for 2 nights. We went away feeling very reassured that they were in safe hands. Our lengthy notes of our house routine and the routine we liked our dogs to follow were followed to the letter. The dogs were obviously happy and Nigel didn’t mind sharing his bed with 2 of them. He kept us informed that they had settled down and were all ok and on the day we were to return even asked where we kept our vacuum cleaner so he could give the floors a quick clean.

We were more than happy with the service he provided and shall definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a caring dog/ house sitter.”

Mrs Porter, Bognor Regis, July 2016

“I would have no hesitation in recommending Nigel’s petcare services. He cared for our 6 guinea pigs and cat at their home whilst we were away on a shortbreak. He gave an extremely professional and caring service, giving daily updates on how they were keeping. We’ll certainly be using his services again.”

Mrs Mortimer-Browton, Bognor Regis, June 2016

“Nigel looked after my 3 year old Bichon Frise Harry for 11 days. He provided a fantastic and professional service from start to finish. He made sure he knew all about Harry first and whilst I was away kept me updated with how Harry was doing. Harry returned happy and totally unruffled by the fact I had been away. Great for me as it was evidence of how well he had been cared for not only on a practical but on an emotional level too. I will certainly use Nigel again and would recommend him to others. Thank you Nigel.”

Mr. & Mrs. Gray, June 2016

“Leaving a beloved pet behind when you travel is not easy. Nigel makes it so much easier! He does not only take excellent care of your four-legged friend, he looks after you as well: daily updates by email and selfies of him playing with your pet put your mind at rest.

We strongly recommend Nigel and we will certainly ask him to look after our cat again!”

Nick and Sybille, Chichester, June 2016

“Nigel looks after my cat Alice. He is meticulous when he visits your house, takes notes of exactly what your routine is so your pet’s life is not disrupted too much by your absence. I feel completely confident and happy that Alice is in good hands.”

Natasha Van Diggelen, May 2016

“I would just like to say a huge thank you to Nigel Fitzsimmons – if it wasn’t for you my baby boy Diesel would probably of been re-homed due to him suffering with anxiety and myself and my husband being at work all day.

Thanks to you going in and walking my boy and breaking his day up we are one very happy family who are still together. So to anyone who is looking for a dog walker I highly recommend Nigel he is very professional, friendly and my boy diesel loves him and cant wait for nigel’s next visit :)”

Rebecca Clarke, Bognor Regis, May 2016

“Nigel has walked our dog Toby on numerous occasions, when we’ve been unable to get out and about ourselves. Toby is the most important thing in the world to us, so to know he is cared for and see him come back happy and well exercised each time means everything.”

Mr & Mrs A Fox, Bognor Regis
