Hi, I’m Natasha and I run the Derby branch of Scamps and Champs.

What our customers say
Great Service, we had a good dog walker prior but not very reliable. Scamps and Champs with their online booking systems and certified professionals is a whole new level of assurance. We love it!
Totally impressed with the professional and friendly service we received for our old dog. We had 3 pet visits by Scamps and Champs and they left us notes about how he had been on each visit. I honestly felt like they cared for his welfare as much as we do and I would highly recommend them to anyone who wants peace of mind when having to leave their pets in the care of someone else.
I have been using Scamps and Champs Derby since November and have been extremely pleased with the service provided. Having previously been let down frequently by another dog caring company, it is so reassuring to have the piece of mind that my pets are in safe hands. Reliable, punctual, efficient and brilliant with both my dog and cat. Providing detailed feedback after every visit and communicating any concerns promptly via text. I cannot recommend Scamps and Champs highly enough and urge you to think carefully before using any other local companies.
Sophie has been staying in our home looking after our lurcher Seb we received regular emails with updates and pictures and he was definitely happy and settled with Sophie especially the pictures where he is having cuddles on the sofa. Also Mel came in to spend time with him during the day. We love how we came home to a detailed log of what has happened that day. We will be definitely using their services again and would highly recommend them. Alot better solution than kennels especially since our boy spent 18 months in kennels before we rescued him.
Melanie and Malise came to set up the first visits with our cats. They were both very friendly and professional. We felt at ease leaving our cats in their hands and I would would highly recommend their service! Malise even left details of the visits for us to look over, great touch! Thank you Malise and Melanie, we will definitely be using Scamps and Champs again!
Melanie provides a fantastic and much needed service. Every detail is catered for and our dogs were very happy. There were extra re-assuring touches such as Melanie personally texting us whilst away to confirm our dogs were happy and we also came home to a daily diary too!! Amazing care and we feel we can confidently go away for the weekend knowing our dogs will be loved and looked after in their own environment and the property kept safe too. Thanks Melanie!
Emma and Melanie made sure we were set up perfectly for our wedding which wouldn't have been complete without our Staffy, Chubbs. The whole service was excellent and conciencious. The update of Chubbs' eating and sleeping complete with photo was so great for putting our minds at ease. Whilst I hope I don't need another wedding service we will very much be in touch for future services! P.S. thanks for the wedding card
We heard about Scamps and Champs through the local vets, they were able to accommodate our needs at last minute and we were very happy with the service provided. I will definitely use their services in the future and thank you to Sophie for looking after our boys.
Fantastic service, Melanie was so professional and we have returned home to very happy animals...I couldn't recommend this service highly enough. Definitely will be using it again, thank you!
