Alexi is a really great dog sitter - she looked after my whippet Violet beautifully; lots of great woodland walks, treats and Violet had great fun with Alexi’s lovely French bulldog Cooper. Alexi really cared for Violet, with lots of little touches like mixing in water with her food as Violet didn’t appear to be drinking much and she also sent daily photos/videos which were great and very reassuring. So, really excellent service and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Alexi who is a fantastic dog sitter!

Pistachio had a WONDERFUL time with Charlotte and Kevin. I was a bit apprehensive about leaving Pistachio (Stash for short) for almost 2 full weeks, but I needed to go back to North America to see family so I wanted to be sure I picked the right dog sitter for the job. Charlotte was always good about keeping in contact with me, answering any questions I had, and making sure there was always an open door of communication. I set up two doggy daycare days with Charlotte prior to the 2 week long stay, just to be sure Stash was familiar with Charlotte and Kevin, and also to be sure it was a good fit. Stash always came back happy after staying with Charlotte and Kevin, and I could tell they all really enjoyed each others company. While I was away Charlotte was sure to send me photos of Stash going on her daily walks and even going to some tourist spots I. Edinburgh. I’m convinced Stash had her own vacation whilst I was away! I never had to worry while I was gone cause I knew Stash was in good hands with Charlotte and Kevin. I highly recommend them for dog sitting and will likely use them again whenever I need to have someone watch Stash.
