LOTTIE & FLYNN
Lottie a two year old Labradoodle and Flynn, a nine month old Weimaraner. They both go regularly for days out with Kima and I couldn’t ask for them to be in better hands, I trust her completely. Kima has an amazing way with dogs. She is strong, calm and very heart centred. She is so in tune with all dogs and has such a great understanding of who they are and what their needs are. She passes this knowledge on to me and it has really helped me to have a deeper relationship with both my dogs. I feel so supported and much more confident as a dog owner. I would definitely recommend her. Your dogs won’t be safer or happier with anyone else. - Tiph
I have been sending Sophia to Kima over the last few months...the transformation is amazing...Sophia was a boisterous almost uncontrollable puppy but even after her first session she was calmer and more content. It's all down to Kima..her approach is calm and disciplined..Sophia is confident with her and the other dogs that share the pack walks. Now a few months on she is a pleasure to own..still lots to learn, but I know with guidance from Kima she will flourish. - Andy
I really didn't think I 'd ever feel easy leaving Stanley with anyone else, unless is was a high security prison! Stanley is a small terrier with tons of curiosity! Kima keeps Stanley safe, gives the dogs in her care a plenty of exercise where they socialize and play games with other dogs. If he is not well, Kima looks after him well. When he stays overnight, he gets to snuggle down with his friends, wrapped up in cosy blankets and even a dog massage! My dog, Stanley gets all the love and care he could wish for, and I can relax knowing he is safe and totally happy. - Louise
I have a rescue Jack Russell that went absolutely, frighteningly nuts when he saw another dog out walking. Kima had him for a day and he returned a completely different dog. I then had a one on one session with Kima and I was blown away by how she literally understood what his behaviour was about and what his triggers were. She was amazingly patient and encouraging with us both and he seemed to respond immediately with Kima's instructions. Kima is incredibly in tune with the dogs and really seems to speak their language. It is inspirational to be around her and dogs. Thank you Kima. :- Nicky
I always admired Kima's dedication, passion and holistic ethos for her work before she looked after our 14 month old French bulldog. He joined Kima's DOGGIE HOLIDAY IN COUNTRYSIDE pack. I cannot thank Kima enough for what she had done for him during our holiday. As hopeless guilty dog parents do, we searched so many options in dog walkers, dog hotels and kennels in London. Every option made us feel somehow uneasy. We found out some of them only take dogs out of kennels for less than a half hour a day. Why wouldn't you want your pup to hang around with the other happy dogs, go for couple hours walk in forests and well fed with wonderful treats like chunky juicy meat on bones, bone broth and doggie smoothie?! Kima also gave us frequent updates with a lot of pictures and messages which made us smile and feel assured he was doing ok. When we picked him up, we certainly felt he had changed and grown up just after two weeks. He was calmer and lost some bad habits also. If you want your dogs to be happy as you are on holiday, I highly recommend to send them to Da Fioretti Holistic Dog Walking. - Yuri
When we got a new puppy we wanted to make sure we gave her the best start and as our first puppy we quickly realised we had alot to learn. We came across Da Fioretti online and after meeting Kima we instantly knew our puppy Broni would be in safe hands. She has been training and walking with Kima for the last few months and absolutely loves her time with Kima. She comes home really happy and relaxed after her time learning and getting to play with other dogs. As well as training Broni, Kima has been the most amazing help to us too, always taking time to go through any tips and advice on all the things we come across with Broni every day. We can't recommend Kima enough. If you're looking for someone who truly loves and cares for dogs and is always happy to help, then look no further. The homemade treats on the website are also a huge hit too!! - Louise and Chris
After moving from a busy suburb to rural Herefordshire, we found our dog became very unsettled. Her behaviour became unpredictable and hyperactive. The walk was not enjoyiable but stressful in case she misbehaved. Also our dog is mongrel mixed with Staffordshire bull terrier which people find scary when she gets stroppy and shouty with other dogs.
I contacted Kima for some advice and our dog spent one day with Kima. After that one day with Kima she returned SUPER CALM and I was amazed at the difference immediately. Kima was very supportive and clear on our dog's needs and what we should focus on. I'm very happy to say that it has now been two weeks and we have been doing as advised and our dog is much calmer, doesn't run straight out the back door when it is open to find cats, sheep or rabbits. Walking on a lead to my side and not pulling and best of all she is not growling at passing dogs. I feel she is much more settled herself and my confidence is increased so I am now enjoying my time with her and do not panic when I see another dog approaching us. I am really thankful to Kima to help build that reconnection with my dog and am loving walking with her and realised she just needed to feel safe. I am really looking forward to continuing helping my dog now with the advice of Kima and I can see its just going to get better. Thank you ! - Hayley
CeCe & Billy
Kima will most certainly take your dog for an extraordinary walk, yet I would never refer to her a "dog walker". She is a soul searcher, and the influence of her calm leadership is almost immediately apparent in the dogs she cares for. Kima wants to know each dog deeply, and in doing so, allows the best to emerge from each dog she interacts with. She is patient, gentle, firm and fair. She is a good observer and listens to and respects her dogs, and reacts accordingly. In turn, the dogs have an obvious unquestionable respect for her; this is very apparent from seeing their willing obedience during her structured walks. Both Cece and Billy have spent extended time with Kima, and were welcomed into her household. She has always had excellent, and daily, communication with me about the dogs' activities and progress, and this is always accompanied by photos and video footage. Cece is a beautiful, strong, magnificent creature, but is very anxious, noise-sensitive, and demands a tremendous amount of patience and time- something that Kima seems only too willing to offer in order to help build Cece's confidence in the world. Billy, a rescue dog from Romania, is a happy guy, but had no structure in his life, and had some sensitivity to being touched and groomed on his back end when we first got him. Kima has spent extra time with him, gaining his trust, and building his confidence about being groomed, and showing him that it can, and should, be a pleasure! I would recommend Kima's dog services in any capacity, whether it be 1:1 training sessions, a weekly structured walk, or a longer stay. I must admit that after seeing my dogs playing together in the fields and streams of Wales with a pack of well-behaved, well-socialised dogs on a daily basis, I fear that they will be terribly disappointed when it is time to return home! Kima, you are irreplaceable- thank you! Lauren PS: The dogs go crazy for her homemade dog treats, and even Billy copes well with them as he has a delicate digestive system and can't eat most dogs treats.
I have a five year old cocker spaniel named Bean. I have had him from the age of three, but from the onset when meeting other dogs he would lunge and bark, making our walks quite stressful.
Since meeting Kima who has walked him with the pack, he is a lot calmer with me. Her energy and understanding of dogs is amazing and her advice to me sound, still a work in progress
but with time and patience and determination we will get there! I would recommend her to anyone who is struggling.
Thank you Kima, I know I can always call upon you for your help and advice.
