We both are non smokers and both have full clean driving licences. We no longer have pets of our own and our children are studying at university so we are free the explore the world!

Testimonials

Exceptional professional sitters

It was a complete pleasure to have Shirley and Gareth take care of my cat Muppet and house sit for me. They are experienced and reliable sitters and I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending them to others and asking them to sit for me again. They are a really lovely couple, fantastic to deal with, trustworthy, professional and friendly. They were very flexible about dates and arrival/leaving arrangements and kept in touch while I was away. I came home to an immaculately clean and tidy house and Muppet had obviously been given huge amounts of love and affection; she didn’t seem to realise I’d be away or come home! Exceptional and very highly recommended sitters. Thank you.

Perfect!

Shirley and Gareth came to look after our home, dog and cat for a week in October. They were great, a lovely genuine couple, they were keen to keep the pets routine just as they were used to and looked after our home wonderfully, we were confident it was in safe hands. We kept in touch over the week and any concerns they had they just asked, would highly recommend them. Please come again!

House sitting in April

Shirley and Gareth had their first assignment with us at HIghfield. They went out of their way to accommodate our change of dates and came a couple of days earlier than I had booked them originally. They were very reliable , friendly and well used and very good with our dogs. I had no worries about leaving them with our house and dogs. They sent a wonderful thank you card of the dogs , on the beach , on the hills. in the sea - such a nice touch. Thank you for everything, I have no hesitation in recommending you both.
