Rebecca was great with our big girl. Kept us up to date all day and very accommodating to her needs (given that she had not long been spayed). I’m sure we will be booking again :)

Fernanda looked after Rumi for the day and was perfect! She came over prior to the booked day to meet us and get familiar with Rumi's routine and he took to her instantly. Fernanda wasn't afraid to ask questions and kept me updated whilst she was here with photos and messages which was really appreciated. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Fernanda and also, book her again to sit Rumi.

About: I absolutely adore all kinds of dogs and love spending time with them. I will treat your dog as my own and give them all the love and attention. I will respect all your rules and make sure your dog receives the same care you give them. I currently look after and walk a variety of different dogs, all shapes and sizes, ages and characters and I absolutely love it. I have even looked after a litter of Old English Sheep dogs in the past so when I say I have experiences with all ages, I really mean it! l always try to provide a fun and stimulating time for your dog, even teaching them a few tricks (with your permission of course). I’m a psychologist by trade so human and animal behaviour has always interested me. Dogs have always held a special place in my heart and I can’t wait for the day to own one but for now, I am so happy and grateful for the opportunity to look after yours! I have years of experience looking after dogs and other pets (including hamsters) - I got my first dog when I was 3 years old and 22 years later, I am still inlove with them. I have also looked after cats and kittens in the past for friends so have some experience with feline friends. Please message me for more details and specific prices, times and dates. I am pretty flexible so things can be arranged. I also have access to a car so can go pretty far. Unfortunately I am not allowed to bring pets to my apartment. I look forward to hearing from you and your doggos! My work involves working from home and a flexible working pattern which lets me pick my hours and work around any pet care commitments. Please message to find out more! Unfortunately I cannot care for your pet at my home due to not being allowed pets at the property - I can accommodate around this though and other arrangements can be made.

Scott has 2 cats at home and is absolutely wonderful with them. He is attentive and affectionate and always puts them first. He always makes sure they have everything they need and is very intuitive to their subtle cues when they need something, or any changes in mood when something isn't quite right with them. I think he'd be great looking after other people's pets as he loves to spend time with animals, whether it's relaxing with them or playing with them, and he loves going out for walks.

About: I’ve had animals, cats and dogs, of multiple types and sizes, my entire life - I’ve never been without an animal! I’m living in Southampton as a student and I really miss walking/taking care of my own animals! I have volunteered at a local dog rescue for about three years and have walked/taken care of many different types of dogs, from nervous to reactive dogs. One of my own dogs is reactive, so i am able to navigate aggressive/reactive animals if that is a concern for you! I also absolutely love cats, and have cat sit for one of my Neighbours for a few years. I’m a student who also works part time, so i am usually completely free on Thursdays and weekends, weekday availability varies, so shoot me a message! I’ve looked after dogs and cats of all sizes and personalities, nothing is out of the question! I am also familiar with administering oral medication and with crating if thats what you prefer!

Flo offered everything we could hope for in a house sitter - she was kind and gentle with Titch, and sensitive to her needs as an elderly (although spritely!) dog. It was obvious to us that Titch had become attached to Flo in just the short time she was here - she even tried to follow her out of the door before turning reluctantly back to us! Flo also showed respect for our home - everything was tidy and clean when we returned. Communication was good, and we were kept updated with photos - I would highly recommend Flo and we've already booked her for the next time we go away. Thank you, Flo!

About: As a pet sitter, my unique advantage stems from a lifetime surrounded by the joy of dogs and cats. Growing up with dogs and currently caring for my sister's cat, I possess a genuine love and understanding of these cherished companions. Beyond borders, my experience includes nurturing cats and kittens in Greece, creating a strong foundation of knowledge and empathy. Friends trust me with their dogs, highlighting my reliability. The emotional connection I share with animals goes beyond mere caretaking — it's a commitment to providing genuine comfort and care, making me a standout choice for anyone seeking a trustworthy and compassionate pet sitter. I’m a full-time student, so Monday from 3 to 5. I have uni and Thursday 11 to 5 as well. Also, I’m going to the gym three times per week, but this is flexible because there are times that I go in the morning or late at night. In both home settings, my approach to pet care is centered on creating a comfortable and secure environment for the animals. In the pet owner's home, I prioritize maintaining the routines and familiar surroundings that pets are accustomed to. This includes regular feeding schedules, playtime, and walks, ensuring minimal disruption to their daily lives. Additionally, I am attentive to any specific instructions provided by the pet owner regarding medications, special dietary needs, or other individual preferences. When caring for pets in my own home, I extend the same level of personalized attention. I strive to create a warm and inviting atmosphere, offering a dedicated space for pets to feel at ease. Regular exercise, play, and affectionate interaction are integral components of my care routine. I am also committed to maintaining a clean and safe environment, ensuring the well-being of the pets under my supervision. Overall, whether in my home or a pet owner's, my goal is to provide attentive and compassionate care tailored to the unique needs of each furry friend.
