  1. We are thrilled with the service we received from start to finish and highly recommend this company.

    Our 16 year old cat was diagnosed with diabetes 6 weeks before we went away. (Hols had been booked 9 months earlier). The catsitter we used was unable to give injections so it was panic stations time. We contacted a few other companies who said they were unable to help. Then Adam and Laura came to the rescue!

    Mikki came round to meet the girls and both Lucy and Maisie took to her straight away. Lucy the diabetic is the most anti social, grumpiest cat, but she went over to Mikki and let her stroke her! We knew we had nothing to worry about

    Mikki kept us up to date with messages and pictures. It’s the first time I have ever gone away and not worried.

    We came home to 2 very relaxed girls wanting food and cuddles. (Nothing new there then)

    We have already made plans for our next holiday and have already asked how much notice we need to give to ensure we can book with them again.

    To sum up our experience. ..10 out of 10.. 5 stars and 100% satisfied.

    Thank you Adam, Laura and a HUGE thanks to Mikki.

  2. Just to say that Cloudy had a really relaxed and sociable time with Brian and Sue. We really appreciate that he feels completely at home with them when he stayed. Thank you all very much.

  3. Just wanted to thank Brian and Sue for looking after Misha, our Pyrenean Mountain dog. They took on a responsibility as she has always been quite anxious when we’ve been away, needless to say we haven’t been away much – no one wants their dog to be unhappy. It didn’t take her long to settle, and although she was very pleased to see us on our return she was not desperate to leave, (on previous holidays she has bolted straight into the car as soon as door was opened). I can’t sing their praises enough, it’s fabulous to be able to relax whilst away, Brian and Sue are such a lovely couple and Misha will definitely be visiting them again.
    Thank you

  4. Our dogs love spending their hols with Nicky and John. They get long walks, lots of play time and they even get to sleep on the sofa! R&W will be on their 3rd hol with them this year and we know as they’re parents that they’ll be looked after really well, which helps us to relax whilst we are away. Nicky and John keep in touch and send us pics of all their antics! They really do get to know them and their routine and when we collect them you can see how much fun they have all had and how settled they have been. I couldn’t see us leaving our dogs with anyone else.

  5. Absolute life savers!!!!

    My partner and I needed last minute emergency cover to look after our cats whilst we went away to get married. I spoke with Adam the day before our wedding and he and Laura came around to the house within hours of the call. We have two cats, one of which requires specialist care, and as all pet lovers will know, we love our little friends like they are our own children.

    Laura and Adam were fantastic!!!!

    They put our minds at ease straight away. Very professional, very experienced, a personal service which we plan to use again and again. They never missed a beat!

    Thanks again, you are the best!

  6. Very impressed with the service that Animalsitting gave. Angela and Derek were fabulous,so laid back because Chester is quite full on,but they were great with him,next year I’ll be booking myself in there and having my toast buttered and cut into tiny squares! What a spoilt boy. Many thanks for all the updates via email and giving us peace of mind that he was enjoying his holiday as much as we were.

  7. Sally looked after our cat for 6 days and the service was great! We got daily updates and our cat was very well looked after. We will absolutely use them again!!

  8. Pepper had a wonderful weekend with Alison and was very content. Thank you Adam for organising it. I will definitely be using your service in the future.

  9. Animal Sitting were able to help us at short notice when our 13 year old German Short-haired Pointer, Tilly, developed separation anxiety after a few days in kennels on her own for the first time. She stayed for 11 days with Sue and Brian, who looked after her superbly and replicated her home routine. We were able able to take a holiday it seemed we might have to cancel, feeling Tilly was in good hands, and have her well-being confirmed to us by text and email while we were away. We would highly recommend Animal Sitting to all dog owners.

    Thanks for placing Tilly in such good hands. You will be our first port of call if she needs to be looked after in the future.

    Regards

    Mike

  10. Our beautiful cat Bernie was much happier with the cat sitting arrangement than with the cattery. She loathed leaving her territory. The cat sitter Sally from Animal Sitting genuinely loves and understands animals. I still missed Bernie whilst away however I was comforted to know that she was feeling much more secure in her own home. Bernie did tell us off when we got back yet it was obvious that she was not anywhere near as bothered as when we used to pick her up from the cattery. I can’t imagine using a cattery again and would definitely recommend Animal Sitting.

  11. I recently booked Animal Sitting to look after my cat for a long weekend. I have used catteries previously but I now have a 7 month old Bengal who is very active and gets bored easily so I was worried about this. We have also added a tropical fish tank to the mix. The reviews of Animal Sitting were all really positive and reassuring, and it was easy to book/pay for. Irene spent a lot of time getting to understand our requirements on her pre-visit. She is obviously passionate about her job and loves cats! Hamish was really happy when we returned with a lovely glossy coat from being brushed every day. He could also enjoy being in his own surroundings, getting lots of cuddles from Irene and I’m not even sure he missed us πŸ™‚ Thanks very much Irene!

  12. I recently (8th May) left my 4 year old Boxer Bella with Lindsay in Stockport for the weekend. Lindsay was brilliant…she fully understood the demands of Boxers….lots of attention….lots of human contact along with anxiety issues. It’s the first time Bella had been left & I could,not have been paired better than Lindsay….many thanks to Adam for the arrangement side & to Lindsay for making Bella,s weekend less stressful. Will certainly be using them again.

    • I had a last minute request for someone to look after a stray mother and her 5 kittens in my back garden whilst I was away. They found someone straightaway and nothing was too much trouble. Sue was great and they all looked well on my return with the kittens growing at a whopping rate! I am away again so Sue has kindly agreed to do the same the day after her return from holiday!
      Much appreciated and thank you for the peace of mind.

  13. Hi Angela and Derek,We would like to say a very Big Thank You For looking after Maisie and Poppy lase week.And for all the text updates you sent whilst we were away.Look forward to dropping the girls off again some time.Michelle and Paul.

  14. Our little dog Missy stayed overnight with Lindsay and Johnathan as an introduction process for a stay later in the year. We were pleased to hear that Missy settled well and was clearly looked after in a very professional way. Missy will be staying for a longer period of time later in the year, so it gives us peace of mind to know that she is in good hands whilst we are not able to be with her.

  15. Brilliant sitters, Sally made sure to update me on her visits with Tartini and Trill, and the team was so accommodating for such short notice! My girls were very happy and relaxed when I got back, never seen them so happy after being away!

    I was extremely pleased with the service and will be using Animal Sitting again for my girls.

    Thank you Sally, Adam, and Laura.

    Nicole, Tartini and Trill.

  16. We had our cats looked after while we were away over a weekend. The service was easy to set up and we received text updates that the cats were doing well and our home was secure! We will use the service again and encourage others to do the same.

  17. Sue and Brian looked after my 10 month old cocker spaniel Freddie while I was away with work. I wasn’t worried about him while I was away as I knew he would always have someone at home with him and likely to have another doggy friend to play with. I could tell he had had a good time as he slept the whole way home in the car when I picked him up, he was shattered! Would definitely use again as it gives you such peace of mind while away. Thank you for taking care of my little rascal of a pooch πŸ™‚

  18. Dexter has stayed with Laura’s mum and dad and wonderful sisters twice now they love him and he loves them.We have no worries at all leaving him now its home from home even sleeping with the girls. Regular text messages and even photos keep us happy while we are away. Would recommend them to anyone who loves there dog as much as we do. More than 5 star service worth every penny. Julie Jan Jane Altrincham

  19. Nicky & John looked after our lurcher, Fly, from Thurs to Sat last week, and we were really pleased with them. It is always stressful leaving your dog with someone new, and after our initial meeting we knew he would be well looked after. When we picked him up on Saturday evening it was clear he was happy and settled with them, which was brilliant. We will now be able to go away for our week’s holiday in March with a clear conscience knowing that Fly is in good hands. We have already recommended your service to friends, and will definitely use Nicky & John again after our next booking.

  20. Really great service from Animal Sitting over the Christmas period when we were away and our Cat Bella needed a daily visit. Our Cat sitter Irene was able to meet with us at short notice to arrange keys and we had peace of mind while away, and returned to a happy Cat πŸ™‚

  21. Thank you Sally for looking after our cat Huxley while we were away for Christmas and for keeping in touch with us each day! We’ll definitely be back in touch to book in again and will recommend Animal Sitting to all of our friends! Beki and Nick

  22. Adam and Laura have looked after our 2 cats on numerous occasions over the last 6 months and we are delighted with the service. Poppy and Milo get loads of fuss and attention and I don’t think they even miss us when we’re gone! I would recommend Animal Sitting to anyone – so much better than putting them in a cattery. Thanks!

  23. Irene is the cat whisper our cat Kizzie never really take’s to new people but
    the fact Irene came face to face with Kizzie is great
    The Service provided by Animal Sitting was outstanding

  24. Thank you to Susan & Brian for taking such good care of Missy our Tibetan Terrier, she was clearly well looked after and loved whilst we had a few days away. Separation is hard for Missy and so important to us for her to be in a loving environment.
    Thanks again.
    Julie & Paul

  25. Thanks to Brian, Susan and especially Olivia for looking after Maxx, it sounds like he was quite attached to Olivia so we appreciate all she did to settle him and take care of him.

    Thanks again,
    Jean and Dave

  26. I was unhappy with my previous dog sitter and was due to go on holiday within a week and knew I would not be able to relax but Adam was able to find my beloved dogs Indy and Alfy a holiday home and we were thrilled with the family and the service. Indy and Alfy enjoyed long walks and a bath. We were able to enjoy our holiday knowing that they were in perfect hands. We will definitely use Nicky and John again.
    Thanks Adam and the team

  27. So pleased to have stumbled across Adam and Laura’s website when we had to make last minute plans for our 2 kittens to be looked after.

    Poppy and Milo have now been left in Adam’s capable hands 4 times and every time we have returned they seem happy and relaxed – so much better than putting them in a cattery.

    This is a great service and we will definitely be using it again in the future. Thanks, Katie & Jon

    • Hi Katie,

      Glad you have been happy with our service and we hope to be looking after Poppy & Milo for many years to come!

      Many Thanks, Adam & Laura

  28. Such a wonderful service! I contacted Adam and Laura over a year ago as I couldnt cope with putting my cats into a cattery on the times I worked away for a night or two. I had never used a pet sitting service before but all I can say is if you do, use this one!! Such a relief to find people who care so much about what they do andpay attention to little quirks our pets have. Thank you all so much for making a stessful life a little easier. You do a fantastic job and I wish you so much continuing success. I’m only sad that I have now moved….. But hey…. If you ever expand to down south……ps the furry boys wave their paws!! πŸ™‚

    • Hi Penny thanks for such a glowing review πŸ™‚

      It was our absolute pleasure and we wish you every success and happiness down south!

      Many Thanks, Adam & Laura

  29. Hi, I have been using Adam and Laura (Animal Sitting) for the last 2 years and they have been fab! I have a Persian House Cat called Rosie and I am often working away. I have always found the service to be great … I have been able to book at short notice, they have always been 100% reliable and Rosie has been cared for perfectly. I have also really appreciated the texts I get to let me know Rosie is all okay and happy at home. Its definitely been much better and less worry for me than putting Rosie in a cattery … she has the home comforts and I have peace of mind! So, a big thank you to Adam and Laura! Susan

    • Hi Susan,

      We had great fun looking after Rosie and we shall really miss her when you have moved down south.

      All the best.

      Adam & Laura xx

  30. My mum usually walks our dog Freddie every day for us, so whilst she is away Animal Sitting arranged for Mike to walk Freddie for us. He is so lovely and Freddie clearly adores him and its so much nicer for Fred to be in his own surroundings rather than a daycare/kennels. Animal Sitting provide a wonderful service and would not hesitate in using them over and over again, and recommending them. Thank you for all your help, you have been fantastic!

    • Hi Jess thank you for your kind words.

      Mike very much enjoys walking Freddie and you have been a pleasure to deal with! Thanks again.

      Adam & Mike

  31. Brian & Sue did a great job looking after my dog, Billy, overnight last weekend. It was very reassuring to know that he was staying in someone’s home and Sue sent me a text to let me know all was well.

    • Hi April, i’m glad Billy had a good time with Brian & Sue.

      They look forward to seeing Billy again soon!

      Many Thanks, Adam

  32. I couldn’t be more happy with the service and care that Adam and Laura provided to my cat Raffa. As a very lively and chatty cat I was very worried about him being caged in a cattery but Adam and Laura took all that worry away by visiting a very happy Raffa in his own home. Having the text updates really helped keep my mind at ease and I came home to a very happy and purring puddy cat πŸ™‚

    The added extras that Adam and Laura provide (bins, plant watering, post etc) are also a brilliant touch and show just how thoughtful and caring they both are. I wouldn’t hesitate in using them again and I will certainly be recommending Animal Sitting to friends and family. Raffa is already looking forward to his next visit from his new best friends πŸ™‚

    • Hi Louise,

      Raffa was very fun to look after and we can’t wait to look after him again πŸ™‚

      Many Thanks,

      Adam & Laura

  33. Animal sitting provided an excellent service, Adam and Rosie were a pleasure to deal with and the whole process was very easy from start to finish. I would thoroughly recommend this great company to anyone, a very reliable, trustworthy and fabulous service. I will definitely be using it again.

    • Hi Simon, I’m glad you were happy with everything and I look forward to hearing from you in the future.

      Many Thanks, Adam

  34. Ralph had a ball with Brian and Sue. They looked after him like he was part of their family and took all the stress we had worried over with kennels. Great care and service. Would definitely use again and again. Ralph cannot wait!
    Simon and Louise

    • Hi Simon & Louise Brian & family said that Ralph was an absolute pleasure to look after and they would love to see him again soon!

  35. I was very nervous about leaving Bella with anyone except family, but she seemed to settle in very well with Angela and loved her stay. I received regular email updates and some photos of her making herself at home. I will definitely be using the service again. Thank you.

    • Hi Hannah,

      That’s great we are so glad that Bella settled in well with Angela.

      Look forward to hearing from you soon.

      Many Thanks

      Adam & Laura

  36. Thank you so much for arranging for our two Border collies to be housed with and cared for by Brian and Sue for a few days in early May when we were visiting friends in Macclesfield. The dogs were very happy when we picked them up and were obviously very much at home with Brian and Sue. You are providing a very good service and I was delighted to find your web site. Very many thanks to you all.

  37. My Labrador Mcqueen has been stay with Animal Sitting for several times. Every time my boyfriend and I went out for holiday, Mcqueen was having her holiday with Animal Sitting. Adam and Laura, Brian and Sue are all very nice people. They love pets. And they are also very professional. Mcqueen gets to play outside even more than at home. I also recommended Animal Sitting to my friends and they all have great experiences.
    Thank you for providing a sweet home for Mcqueen.
    Henan xx

    • Hi Henan thank you for your kind words.

      Everyone looks forward to when McQueen stays, she is no trouble at all.

      Many Thanks, Adam & Laura

  38. A great solution for rescue cats who wouldn’t cope going back into a caged environment.

    My four Moggy’s seemed right as rain when I got back from my hols so I shall be calling on Adam & Laura later on in the year when I go to sunny Spain!

    Jane xXx

  39. Thank you so much for boarding Leo for us whilst we went away. We had never heard of home dog boarding so we are glad that we came across your site. We have been telling all of our friends about you so expect some more bookings soon.

    Thanks again

    Dan & Leah
