“Anne was brilliant with our cats and dog, arrived on time for every appointment, an update and photos for every visit. The dog particularly enjoyed her walks. Cannot recommend enough, we will definitely rebook next time we go away.”
“Cal has always taken amazing care of my cat for me while I’ve been away and treats him like his own! He’s clean, tidy and respectful, always friendly and 100% reliable :)”
“Julia is my daughter so you might think I'm biased and you would probably be right! But it is totally true that she is very kind and caring, loves animals and has taken great care of her own dog and mine. She is also very organised, reliable and trustworthy.”
“Beth is super with dogs! My little one is a bit of a handful and there is very few people I trust with her! She is very familiar with all sorts of breeds from small to large and my little one always comes back happy and content!”
“Mollie is so kind and caring and my puppies loved her 😊”
“Rachel grew up in a family of dog-lovers and they've long been a part of her life. Since before she could have a dog of her own, she would look after them for friends and family whenever the opportunity arose. I only have my dog, Alf, (of 10 years now) because she'd been trying to re-home him after his owner decided to move to the USA and was going to leave him behind. I trust her implicitly with my dog, knowing that he'll be safe, secure and will get walked come rain or shine. Rachel's dog, Pud, passed quite recently due to neurological complications, aged just three. In the run up to this, the lengths she was willing to go to to keep him happy and comfortable were genuinely commendable; from paying whatever financial cost there might be, to feeding him by hand, modifying her house or holding him up so he could go to the toilet. In his prime, Pud was always well groomed, had lovely clean teeth and was a really happy and contented little chap. As soon as she told me she wanted to do this, it made total sense. I really can't think of anyone that would be more suited to it!”

About: I’ve been a guide dog fosterer for around 3 years, I will be happy to care for any other dogs that might need it as well I’m currently a student that lives on the uni campus so I am only available for the weekends that I come home, being a student I need money. I have a grass back garden with fences, but there is a motorway behind it which could be unsettling for some dogs, I would need a crate/bed supplied
“Rebecca is the most passionate dog person you will ever meet. Very knowledgeable and caring but is also someone who understands dog behaviour and how to cater to dogs needs. I know she's spent all her life with dogs of various breeds and sizes and she is someone with integrity and honesty. Recommend Rebecca very highly.”
“I have known Rochelle for the last couple of years having met her when she moved back to the UK with her dogs. I can say with absolute confidence that Rochelle is a genius when it comes to dogs. During her time living in Asia she was involved in animal rescue, where she regularly provided care for Indonesia’s abandoned street dogs and cats. She rescued a breed dog who was living in terrible conditions and a Bali Dog, who was living alone in the jungle and clearly in need of help. Due to their traumatic past experiences, both these dogs had many behavioural problems that were rooted in lack of trust, fear and extreme anxiety. One of her dogs had extreme fear of humans and the other extreme fear of both humans, bicycles and sticks and occasionally other dogs. For most people, taking on two dogs with such difficult needs would be challenge but Rochelle not only brought these dogs home with her to England, she also put the time and effort into socialising both dogs and slowly but surely putting in the mechanisms needed to help them overcome their fears. All of her training and behavioural modification has been fundamentally rooted in love and positive reinforcement. When talking to Rochelle, she clearly knows her stuff and is up to date with the latest scientific studies on dog behaviour and training methods. She works with the dog not against it and always understands the importance of respecting their boundaries. She allows the dog a chance to make its decision and come to her and works individually with the dog’s particular needs. There is never any trigger stacking and when out with her dogs, Rochelle is very attentive and responsible and encourages others to do the same. Her two dogs have made incredible progress in the time she has had them and this is testimony to Rochelle’s hard work, dedication and knowledge and experience. Moreover, she is also now experienced with primitive dog behaviour. Rochelle is extremely friendly and sociable. She is very easy to get along with and instantly puts you at ease with anything that might concern you. She owns her own business and thus is extremely experienced in dealing with clients, managing a busy schedule and holds excellent customer service. Rochelle holds a strong moral compass to care for others and this shows in her dedication to always putting her client’s needs first. She has a flexible working schedule and two dogs who are absolute sweethearts. One of which is extremel sociable and can bring even the most shy of dogs out of its shell. The other absolutely loves people and very well behaved off lead. With Rochelle, you it all and I can say with my hand on my heart that she would be a great help to anyone in need of a person to help care for their dog, particularly if it is anxious or fearful.”
“Very nice young person polite and friendly . My dog enjoyed his walk and I will use her again in the future.”

“I found El to be a very responsible person who truly enjoys caring for animals just like cats, dogs, fish, hamsters and even more! She is a very caring individual and I’d definitely recommend her if someone was to ask for a pet sitter. She does an amazing job and I’m confident your pets would love her just as much as mine do! Just to add El would look after your pet just as it would be her own! Animals are family!”

“I can’t recommend Gemma enough!!! We felt so at ease when Gemma came to meet Luey, our labradoodle, before a walking him and saw the love she has for dogs! We were updated with pictures and videos throughout our holiday which really made us feel like our pooch was having a bit of a holiday himself! We would no doubt use Gemma in the future and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to all of our family and friends! Thank you Gemma! With love from Kerry, Ryan and most importantly, Luey ???”
