Ian was great with my dog, Sampson. Sampson was happy, well exercised, and not anxious at all when I returned from my trip. I would definitely recommend Ian as a dog sitter.

Ian was communicative and attentive - he did a great job taking care of our cats when we were away! He even went out of his way to play with them, not just feed them, and sent cute pics our way. Will definitely be booking him again!

Ian was great! Very knowledgeable about animals and even trained in animal massage which was a bonus for Cuisle, who has hip dysplasia! Sent loads of pictures and updates Too.

When Ian watches your pet

All dependent on the dog - if they have tons of energy then we'll go on a long, twisting and turning high pace walk. If low energy, we'll take a slow meandering walk with plenty of time to smell the roses as we go! With your permission as well I will provide a cursory pre and post walk massage rubdown as part of my studies for my Canine Massage Therapy certificate.
