Thanks again to Katie. I'd hate to say it but I think Blue dog actually looks forward to my away trips as he knows Katie will be around. Another great job, smooth and without fault.

Cannot thank Katie enough ! Looked after our Blue dog for an 8day stretch, The service again was tops. With daily updates, I could see he was enjoying himself, plenty of walks and ball play. Certainly put my mind at ease knowing he was safe, fed, and happy. Makes going away so easy.

Katie recently looked after my 2 dogs Jess and Blue. It was her first introduction to my 'kids' and my first time using a pet sitter. Needless to say I was nervous, but even with all my dogs querky habits Katie did an excellent job, and kept me updated every day with messages and photos. With feeding, walks, cuddles and plays I'm sure Jess and Blue will be looking forward to Katie's return, and I am so happy knowing they are in good hands. Thanks Katie, you're a gem.
