  • We picked up Evie this afternoon from Ken who minded her for the weekend, and I just wanted to say a huge thankyou! This was the first time we have used Don't Fret Pet and it was so wonderful, we will definitely be using you guys again and spreading the word to everyone we know! Ken is so lovely and Evie just loved him! He even gave her a new toy to take home!

  • I just wanted to let you know what a wonderful cat-sitter Vanessa is -- something I am sure you already know. She was so sweet with our very timid Frankie, and she left a lovely note, in addition to sending us photos of Frankie while we were away. With best wishes and thanks so much.

  • I would like to thank Danielle for visiting my puppy Digger. She was wonderful and really put my mind at ease with daily updates of how Digger was. I would recommend Dont Fret Pet Home Visits to anyone who feels their pets are more comfortable in their own back yard.

  • A big thankyou for recommending Leslie to look after my deaf dog, Humphrey. She is kindness and gentleness personified, and managed my strange little dog beautifully. He is a sweetheart, but definitely 'different'! Leslie's care was wonderful - heartfelt thanks - I shall definitely use your services again.

  • Bandit had a great time. He was excited to us, that was after we got him inside from playing with Jinx. Fiona was fantastic from the first phone call to pick up. She made us feel so relaxed about leaving Bandit that we had a great break and the text from her letting us know how things were going was so nice. We will be asking for her again and have been telling all our friends about DFP.
