Hi, my dog has been so happy since spending time out with barbara. His behavior has got much better and his excitement indoors has also calmed down alot. Barbara is also a very nice person passionate about her job and always responds pretty quick and even has done on short notice which I appreciate. All round I would recommend this sitter.

Nick and his wife were THE BEST. I had no worries whatsoever leaving mozzy with them for the weekend. They were so welcoming and reassuring. I received frequent updates and the photos of mozzy nick took were amazing. Mozzy deffos would have stayed longer if he could 🥰. 1 million percent recommend nick and maddie if you are looking for a pet sitter!

We recently left Cruz with Barry and Hilary while we went abroad on holiday. He received excellent care and constant attention. Barry communicated with us several times a day, sending updates, videos and photos of Cruz, which we really appreciated. Cruz was unwell one day and Barry kept us informed every step of the way. We made a plan of action between us, which thankfully avoided a visit to the vet. Even once he was better, we were kept informed of his progress. Barry truly had Cruz's best interests at heart. He had a great time, going new places and having new experiences. Barry and Hilary welcomed him into their home and treated him like a prince .
