I couldn't recommend Alannah enough for having Bubbles to stay. He was so well looked after, I got plenty of messages and pictures from Alannah. I will definitely be using her services again.

Cecilia and Leo are amazing! It was our first time leaving Parsnip with a sitter and we couldn't be happier with how it went. Not only was she well looked after in a loving home, but we received plenty of updates and photos. We had arranged to meet Cecilia and Parsnip in Holyrood for some wedding photos - we were getting married that weekend - but unfortunately the weather worked against us. However Cecilia and Leo did everything they could to accommodate our request! Sky is also the cutest puppy!

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.
