“My 3 small dogs love Tina and Matt. The dogs have stayed with Tina for a few breaks in the last 2 years. I was nervous about leaving them initially as they are very needy little dogs. However they settled really quickly into Tina’s lovely home. Tina sent daily photos of 3 happy little dogs which were very welcome and reassuring that they were ok. Tina also did daily home visits to attend to our 2 elderly house cats and they were much happier than having the stress of going to the cattery. I am only too pleased to recommend Tina for taking the stress out of going away and leaving our lovely pets.”
Sue & Mike – February 2023

“I have been taking my little dog Eric to Tina’s for 2½ years now, since he was a puppy. He is so precious to me that I wouldn’t leave him in kennels. He loves going to Tina’s though and I am kept up to date in what they are doing by photographs and videos via WhatsApp. I know that he has a lovely, safe holiday too and I would wholeheartedly recommend her. Actually, I already have recommended Tina to a couple of my neighbours. Tina and Matt’s is a real home from home.”
Allison – August 2022

“We love Tina!  We are able to leave Teddy, our four year old Cockapoo, with her knowing he is in great hands.  Tina is so caring, gentle and thoughtful.  Teddy has been going to her for the odd day or several days at a time, staying overnight since he was a puppy.  When we arrive at her home, Teddy rushes straight to the toy box and completely forgets about my husband and I, which is what you want really.  I am sure she plays with him all day as , when we get home, he expects us to do the same!  Tina keeps us up to date with how things are going while he is staying with her and sends photos to us of him playing which we love.  Teddy is very precious to us and I really was worried about leaving him with anyone but I don’t worry when he is with Tina. He thinks he is on holiday when he stays with her.  I would absolutely recommend Tina, she really is the best.”
Gill & Barry – 2022

“Tina’s is like a second home for our dog Ned. A holiday home if you like. He gets excited when we just mention Tina’s name.  She will keep us updated with pictures when we are away and her fees are very reasonable.  We mainly use Tina’s service for her boarding service but we can rely on her for dog walking too.”
Billy & Kayla – 2022

“Tina has looked after Meg our English Pointer for the last three years on numerous occasions and we cannot find fault with the care and love she provides.  Meg regards Tina and Matt’s house as her second home and is overjoyed to jump out of the car on arriving and get stuck into the toy box! We don’t get a second look!!  Tina is always mindful of who Meg boards with and it’s lovely to see the updates we are sent of her various walks with other dogs – of all different sizes!  We would have no hesitation recommending Tina, for us it’s lovely to be able to leave Meg in such good hands and know that she will be safe, loved and well cared for.”

“Tina has been looking after our cat Ted for three years, and we wouldn’t be without her! She is always professional, kind and caring, and takes her responsibility for looking after Ted extremely seriously, meaning we have absolutely no worries about him whilst we are away. We always receive updates letting us know that all is well, and we always return to a very happy cat! We would have absolutely no reservations in fully recommending Tina if you are in need of a pet sitter!”
Sophie & Tom – 2021

“Tina boards Barley for me at least three times per year. Barley is very well looked after and all his needs are met. There is a good size garden for the dogs to relax and play in. Barley is taken on long regular walks, where he is often allowed to play in a stream, which is his idea of a great walk. I am updated with photos and messages throughout his stay. Going to stay with Tina is home from home for him. I can go on holiday relaxed knowing he’s a happy dog while I am away.”
Julie – 2021

“Tina has been looking after our two dachshunds for nearly 4 years both as a day visit and overnight stays and we do not know what we would do without her. The dogs don’t see her as a visitor but as part of the family and are always excited to see her. Flexible to the needs of the dogs and our schedules she delivers the highest level of care.  We trust her implicitly in our home and in caring for our dogs. We can wholeheartedly recommend Tina’s services.”
Terry & Carrie – 2019

We have been using Tina to walk our ageing border collie Max daily for the last 3 years and we can’t rate Tina highly enough. We have varied busy schedules and Tina does her best to accommodate us all and tries to make ours and Max’s lives as easy as possible, being both flexible and reliable. Max loves his daily walks and Tina really cares about him and his woofy requirements and it is the highlight of his day. We know Max also loves his sleepovers with Tina as we don’t even get a backwards glance when we drop him off.  We don’t know where we would be without Tina.”
Matt & Jenny – 2018

“Having always used family and friends to look after our dog in the past, we thought it would be a very difficult transition to start using an independent dog carer. However, after meeting Tina and her partner Matt in their lovely home, we were instantly put at ease and even Max; our dog made himself comfortable within five minutes!  After a thorough assessment and discussion about Max’s requirements, we arranged an introductory overnight stay which went extremely well for both parties. We were very relieved to see how happy our boy was and to hear how he had settled in so quickly after we had left.  We have now returned from a week away and it was lovely to see how both the dog, Tina and Matt have bonded so well which obviously gives us great comfort and confidence for future holidays. Tina is very attentive to both the animal and client’s needs and I would certainly recommend her to anyone who is worried about leaving their pets for the first time. Thank you to both Tina and Matt for making what felt to be a really difficult situation to handle become so easy.”
Amanda, Andy & Max – 2018

“We have had Tina look after our dog Rupert for around 3 years and I would not like him to stay anywhere else.  He loves to stay with her as she is very kind to him and he gets very spoilt.  I was very unsure when we first left him but was soon put at ease as Tina would send updates and photos while we were on holiday. Last time we dropped him off to her, he just trotted in, went out to the garden had a good old sniff and did not care when we left to go. I would highly recommend Tina for boarding or dog walking as we have used both her services.”
Teresa, Trevor & Rupert – 2018

“I go away a few times a year and knowing that there is someone who is kind, friendly and importantly trustworthy to look after my little mate means I can go away knowing my cat is in great care, and in her own space. Tina’s work is fantastic, and I would absolutely recommend her to anyone needing a cat-sitting service.”
David – 2017

“The service provided by Tina gives us peace of mind. She has looked after our cats when we have been away for at least 16 years. Initially she cared for our two black British shorthairs and then their successors, a family of three. We know our cats are in safe hands with Tina. Our cats are gregarious and Tina provides more than just a cat feeding service. She makes time to play with them. As a result, they always welcome her with their tails up! They share our confidence and trust we could unreservedly recommend her.”
Jacqui – 2002 to 2012

“Tina first looked after my cats when I moved home nearly 7 years ago. She has a calm considerate manner and has proved to be very capable and trustworthy over the years. Last year my 15+ years old cat Rosie was needing daily pain relief whilst I was away. This was to be given my mouth, not easy at the best of times! Tina was not phased by this at all. I had some reassuring messages from her during my holiday and was relieved to find that Rosie had actually put on weight during my absence and was fit for her operation. I have no hesitation in recommending the caring service Tina gives to other cat owners.”
Margaret – period as from 2007

“For several years, Tina looked after our cats whilst we were abroad. This was not just for a two week holiday. My husband and I spend two three month periods each year in our house in Greece, a total of 182 days a year. Our cats were elderly and we did not wish to remove them from their home environment so we used Tina’s services. Tina came in every day to feed them, change the litter tray and play with them. She checked them every day to see if they were ok. On one occasion one of them had hurt her paw, so Tina took her to the vet. I suspect that other ‘minders’ may not have picked this up and poor Polly would have suffered until our return. On other occasions Tina noticed other problems and either took them to the vet or telephoned me for instructions. If a cat looked ‘poorly’, Tina would come back for a second visit to check on it. Tina did not tell me she was doing this and did not charge me for it. I was impressed and touched by her diligence and compassion. Apart from taking care of the cats Tina did other small services such as picking up the mail when she came in so that it did not accumulate on the doorstep. Tina charges a very fair rate and is not greedy. She obviously likes what she does and is not in it just to make money from people. When Tina’s own holidays coincided with our periods away, she always arranged for someone else reliable to cover her for a couple of weeks. Unfortunately our three cats died one by one over the years, so now we have no need of Tina’s services. However, I cannot recommend her highly enough and would not hesitate to use her again if ever the need arises.”
