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)

Carolyn is an absolutely fantastic dog sitter. From the first day we met she was polite, professional and so friendly. Most of all she was an instant hit with our dog Rocky. She was thorough with getting to know all of Rocky’s requirements and it was clear she had plenty of experience and knowledge in this area. It was such a huge relief to know that Carolyn would be with him when we were at work. She goes above and beyond her required duties and is even doing some training with Rocky during their time together. We love receiving her updates of how Rocky’s day is going and all the fun they have had together. Overall I would not hesitate to recommend Carolyn to anyone looking for a friendly, experienced and trustworthy pet sitter.
