We met Laura before making a booking and she is a lovely lady, very pleasant and I felt happy for her to check in on our dogs. She came for a walk with us so she could see how our dogs behaved on walks and it was so lovely that she did this. She popped in to visit today to check in our dogs and sent me photos and a report. I'm very happy to use Laura for future bookings. Reviews are everything and I really recommend Laura to look after your pets.

Hilary really bonded with my cat. I could tell from the several daily photos she sent while I was away. I really felt that she cared about my pet and that my cat was in safe hands. I will definitely be asking Hilary to look after her in the future.

John was amazing with Thor. I am a “pet mum” full of requests and reminders , lists on the wall and especially i request a continues update. John gave me everything I requested and he was really caring and affectionate with Thor🥰 I was a little apprehensive about many things cause although Thor is not a Huge dog is anyway a dog of a certain size, I have nothing but good words about him and I will for sure book him again in the future.

Hayley was fantastic - Super friendly and did everything she could to ensure Milos routine was kept to. Obvious she has a lot of experience handling dogs, Milo was calm at the initial meet and greet and had a great time hanging out with Hayley for the afternoon. We'll definitely call upon Hayley next time we need a dog walker/dogsitter!

I couldn’t be happier with the service I received from Lauren. All my pets loved her, even my shy cat made friends with her. One of my dogs needs regular medication which she was more than happy to do and I felt I could relax knowing he was in capable hands. I would definitely recommend her.

Olivia looked after our cat, Pigeon, for ten days while we traveled. We’ve never had such a relaxing and enjoyable time away as we did this visit. Olivia was prompt with updates, kept our fur ball well fed and loved, looked after our home in ways we hadn’t even asked for, and was an overall joy to interact with. We’ll be checking with Olivia first for Pigeon’s care whenever we leave going forward!

Sammii has been a regular walker of our family Labrador for a number of years now. She always has great interactions with our dog ensuring she receives lots of love and playful interactions. Our dog loves cuddles, particularly a belly rub, and playing tug of war with her towels which Sammii is more than happy to do to keep her entertained.

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!

Corban has always had a love for animals and they have always been drawn to him. He has a way of bringing the best out in them by being gentle and fun, but also has firm boundaries. He is very responsible both in the practical things involved with the care of animals, but also has a very good knowledge about health issues and behavioural issues. I often call on Corban for support and advice with our pets. I would absolutely recommend him to look after your pets.

Brooke is amazing with our large labradoodle, he absolutely loves her and their walks together. I would highly recommend Brooke, she is reliable, punctual but most of all Oscar has an amazing time with her every time they go out. Oscar loves a woodland walk which Brooke is always happy to take him on. Would definitely recommend Brooke as would Oscar!

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.
