Clodagh looked after my young fox red lab Albert for a few days while I was away with work. She was fantastic - getting to know his routine, and being very communicative with lots of photos and pupdates! Albert loved Clodagh!

Denise is fantastic! Reya warmed to her straight away on the meet and greet, and was so excited to see her again when she came to sit. They spent the weekend together while I was away and had a great time. I got lots of photos and updates, Reya was a very happy girl. The house was spotless when I got back. Would definitely recommend Denise, and will be availing of her services again for sure, she is terrific.

Tracey was great. My first booking with Rover and Tracey was calm and professional with our two rather over excited dogs. I would definately ask Tracey to after the dogs in the future.

Iina was amazing! Our babies loved having her here with them. She asked for our daily schedules and she followed it better than we do 😂 she sent photos daily and spent lots of time playing and giving them cuddles. Will definitely be rebooking her again!

Celia looked after Finn at my place for the day. They got along really well and he was clearly very happy with her! Celia’s comms were quick and clear, she arrived on time and took care of the place. Great sitter and will definitely book again.

Thalia is such an excellent person. She made my very nervous dog feel at ease immediately. This was my first time leaving my girl with anyone and I'm so so glad it was Thalia. She kept me updated with pictures and was quick to respond to my texts throughout the day. Took my girl for walks and got all of her energy out. Thalia watched my dog for two days, and on the second day, my dog was SO excited to see her. She's just an awesome human. Best experience I could have asked for.

This was our first time using this app and Vanessa made us feel very comfortable and confident leaving our rehomed dog with her! She was very respectful of our house and space, we got updates throughout the evening and came back to a very happy dog - would definitely recommend!

Gemma and Calum were absolute stars. We’ve came back to an incredibly happy and relaxed dog, who has clearly been kept very busy and stimulated. Clear she’s been on her holidays too! Whole process was a dream compared to others, and can’t thank them enough. 100% recommend!

I am writing to wholeheartedly endorse my daughter Frances Rowe for her unparalleled commitment and dedication to the care and protection of animals. Frances's love for animals is not just a passion for her but a calling that she has pursued with compassion. Her work with the SPCA, even while managing her school academic responsibilities, showcases her commitment to animals. Frances's involvement in assisting me in my love for the protection of rhinos in South Africa, speaks volumes about her courage, resilience, and dedication to conservation. Working with me she has experienced the forefront of challenging and dangerous situations, always putting the well-being of animals ahead of her own safety. This experience has enriched her knowledge and understanding of wildlife conservation. Frances reflects a profound consciousness towards the care of animals in today's world. She approaches every task with a heart full of empathy. Her ability to connect with animals, understand their needs, and advocate for their rights is truly remarkable. Frances embodies the spirit of compassion that is desperately needed in society today. I strongly believe that Frances is an exemplary model of love and care for animals. Her dedication is an inspiration to those around her. I am very proud of my daughters consciousness towards animal welfare and this testimonial may seem a fathers blind pride of his daughter but I can assure anyone looking at Frances for any involvement or interaction with animals that they will be unreservedly satisfied with her appointment.

Sadhbh is a caring and enthusiastic person, who I take many hikes with in and around the hills surrounding Edinburgh. As someone who is used to walking her friends and familys dogs, and a cat owner herself, she is the perfect person to take on the responsibility of looking after your pet.

Daria always does such a great job with Bean. She stayed with our pup again while we were out of town for a few days, and we never had to worry about if Bean was okay. Daria sends plenty of updates on the adventures they go on together. We are always stressed about leaving our pup when we are away, but Daria is so wonderful with her and send pictures and videos every day. The multiple updates she sends each day are calming and make us smile and laugh! Thank you for always giving us peace of mind while we're away, we can relax knowing Bean is in good hands.

Rachel was amazing with our little shy puppy. Patient and caring with him, we couldn’t have left Otto in better hands. She was happy to help with anything we needed and makes us feel at ease. Communication throughout was great. We will be more than happy to leave Otto with Rachel in the future.

Holly was absolutely spectacular! She met with us in advance to meet Bilbo and she did everything without a hitch and even got to know Bilbos quirks pretty quickly. She was a true pleasure to have dog sitting.
