J & K in Colchester have been pet sitting with Essex Petsitters since day one. So this makes them one of our most popular sitters!
The whole family likes to get involved with pet care, including K’s mum, who lives in a self contained part of the family home and regularly shares her lap with a little dog who wants a cuddle.
As well as having a lovely comfortable and safe home with a large garden – they are ideally situated in a rural location, meaning that country walks, fresh air and lots of exercise are on the schedule on a daily basis.
J works from home, and usually shares his office with a canine companion – so there is plenty of company available throughout the day.
Mr & Mrs C live in the Maldon area. This couple have a lovely, well set out bungalow, which easily accommodates a visiting dog. Mr & Mrs C have had a lifelong experience with lots of different breeds of dogs, some large, some small, and their canine guests have a great time when they visit.
Ideally placed for Maldon, Burnham and surrounding villages.
M & D have a lovely family environment, and offer a high standard of care for their own lovely little Westie, as well as well behaved visiting dogs.
With 3 grown up sons, there is lots of attention for every dog. They have spent many hours ensuring that their own little Westie is a very well trained, sociable little dog.
This is the perfect environment if you need a local dog sitter near Chelmsford – and your dog enjoys the company of other friendly dogs.
Mr & Mrs R rose to an amazing challenge, when with only 2 days notice, their very first canine guest turned out to be a large Rhodesian Ridgeback!
There was also the complication that his owner did not have a car so he was in need of transport from Ilford to Chelmsford. With no hesitation, this lovely couple offered to collect their charge dog and take him back to their home for a doggy holiday.
Mrs R is a housewife, and Mr R runs his own business from home, so every dog they now look after has company all day long.
“Maria was extremely valuable to us in arranging excellent care for our dogs at short notice.
Maria was thorough and gave us the comfort we needed to leave our babies with someone else for the first time.
The pet sitters clearly had a love for dogs and again were very particular to understand our dogs routines and habits.
We visited them before the dogs went to stay with them for a week.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Essex Petsitters!”
“We were really pleased, Winnie took to the place very quickly and had a lovely play with James and Kathy – very quickly locating the pot that contained all the balls and toys!!!
Thanks again, the holiday will be much more relaxing knowing that Winnie is well taken care of and I have already starting packing her bag!!”
“We have been using Essex Pet Sitters for nearly 5 years now and are extremely happy with the service we receive.
We were never keen on putting our beloved pet in kennels and the idea of him living in someone else’s home while we were away, was the perfect solution. Over the years we have a few different families that we use to look after our lively boxer ‘Butch’ while we have our regular holidays but Essex Pet Sitters have also helped us on many last minute occasions, such as babies being born and hospital trips!
Most recently one of our Sitters became poorly and were unable to look after our dog when we had booked our holiday a year in advance. The lovely Janice and her family managed to arrange alternate Sitters last minute, even collecting butch half way through our holiday to care for him herself. For which we were eternally grateful!
Butch loves all his Sitters and we feel it’s a fabulous holiday for him too!”
