We had Aisling cat sit for us this week and have to say we were really happy with the service she provided. Aisling was so friendly and understanding of our fur babies needs. She also provided us with regular photo updates as our daughter was very anxious being away from her pets. This was great as she was upset the 2nd night away from them. One of our cats is a very anxious house cat and never ventures outside so it was great to able to leave her in her own environment to be cared for by Aisling. She did daily check ins with them provided fresh food water, emptying of cat litter and more importantly cuddles. I highly recommend Aisling as a pet sitter. Suzanne (Jack & Alex)

I would highly recommend Rebecca to take care of your pet. she has an innate love and understanding of animals and came for an introductory walk with me and my 2 (unfriendly) Jack Russells. On taking them out on the first day, one of my dogs didn't want to know and growled when she went close. However, with patience and persistence and some chicken (!), she had won him over by the afternoon walk and even managed to pet him - result!! By day 3, he was eating out of her hand! My dog is infamous for being a one dog guy and is very shy of other people, so Rebecca worked wonders. Rebecca is walking the dogs twice daily and I have total faith and confidence in her with them. Also very reassuring that she is a 5th year Vet student. Rebecca sends updates and pics on her walks which I love to get, knowing they are out and happy.
