Testimonials | Animal Aunts - The House & Animal Sitters - Part 6

Happy Healthy animals with added bonus!

Good Morning Donna
I thought I would just drop you a line to say thank you .
We arrived back from our weeks holiday to find all pets looking healthy and happy and an added bonus ,the house cleaned. You may query why that was a surprise, well Linz was only popping in twice a day to feed animals so I wasn’t expecting any cleaning to be done. So please thank her from me and I look forward to her being my animal aunt in May.
Thank you again

Decade of Dogsitting

Dear Gillie,

I wanted to congratulate you on your forthcoming 30th anniversary. It’s a real achievement to build and maintain a strong business for all those years – I also started my business about the same time and still operational today.

I have been a client of Animal Aunts for nearly 10 years.  I can’t remember how we got to hear about your service, but boy it was a life saver. When we got Lara a German Shepherd at the age of nine weeks, it did not take too long before we noticed that she had ‘problems’. She was a boisterous, intelligent pup that had a neurological problem – according to Fitzpatrick Referrals they thought that she might well have MS and probably would not live longer than about two years. Lara had an extreme habit of chasing her tail and falling over as she would often lose her balance. She was also very immature in her interactions with other dogs – barking in their faces which was not always well received. I remember speaking to someone at Animal Aunts expressing my concerns and asked if they had someone who could manage Lara. You were so reassuring and recommended the lovely Ian. He was brilliant with Lara and he has cared for her every time we have gone away for the past nine years. Obviously her condition did not escalate and although she is getting old and the effects of her condition are only  now becoming more acute. However, she is still active and the bond with Ian is ever strong.  I thank Animal Aunts for their support over the years and have recommended your services to many people.

 Good luck with your celebrations – I hope you get lots of lovely publicity too.

 Kind regards

Happy with dogsitter

Dear Gillie,

I just wanted to say thank you for arranging Jeanette to look after Rolo and Coco last weekend. Our dogs seemed very happy with her – especially Rolo, who can take time to get to know people – and to arrive home to find a cottage pie in the fridge too was a real bonus! 

Please do pass on my thanks to Jeanette and I am sure I will be using your services again in the future.


Thanks again and kind regards,

- James C

No Qualms Animal Sitting

I just wanted to say how delighted I am with your service. Steve and June are simply delightful and extremely competent.  I had absolutely no qualms about leaving them in charge of all the animals and would not hesitate to use your and their services again. My family spend a lot of time away in the summer and I usually remain behind to look after the animals, rather than asking my parents. I wish I had know about you sooner and look forward to using your Animal Aunts again (just hope that Steve and June don’t return to NZ too soon!).

Kindest regards

Great dog sitting service

Dear All

I wanted to thank you for arranging our lovely dog sitter on Christmas Day to look after Wally and Katie in our hotel whilst we had Christmas Dinner. Aunty Alan!! was lovely and put us at ease very quickly and the dogs loved him. He arrived punctually and was very easy going and friendly. He made contact with us well in advance of the day on two occasions to keep us informed and put our mind at rest. It was a great service and one I would not hesitate to use again.

 I look forward to booking with you again soon.

 Kind regards,


- Jennifer
