Gavin and the family took great care of Merlin, I had regular updates and lots of pictures. It was the first time we had left him and he was only just a year old. He was left with 3 lady dogs poor thing but he seemed to cope ok. He did have one of the family's dogs that was around the same age that he did seem to bond with. He was happy and content when we came back so I would have no hesitation to book again. Very happy with the pet sitting service that Gavin provided.

We were so happy with how well looked after Archie was with Gavin, his family and their beautiful three dogs. We were kept updated on how he was getting on and their home was perfect for him, a big enclosed back garden and pals to play with. We were able to fully enjoy our holiday knowing he was in such great hands! Thank you so much!
