Carly helped me over New Year when no one else was available. I was over 300 miles away, it was very reassuring to know that my horse was being well cared for, I was kept well informed so was able to enjoy my holiday. - Jo T
Carly has housesat for us on numerous occasions over the past year either for just a few hours or a week at a time. She is hard working, conscientious and trustworthy. We have always felt relaxed leaving her in charge of our horses, dogs, cat, hens and ducks! She is happy to walk the dogs and lunge our horses. The stables and house are always immaculate on our return, she is always bright and cheerful and only too keen to help out when ever possible. Above all I know that the animals are happy in her hands and that gives us peace of mind while we are away. - A Feather
Carly is a natural with animals, she is caring and attentive and loves the animals as much as they love her. She is reliable and trustworthy, and always keeps us updated whilst we are away. We have complete peace of mind when leaving our pets in her care and our cockapoo adores her! - Mr & Mrs Edwards
Carly looked after my house, 2dogs and 3 horses whilst I was away. She gave a great service keeping me up to date with how the animals were doing throughout the week.  Lovely girl and will be using her again. - S Freitas
I’ve used Carly for over a year now, she looks after my dog regularly and walks him twice a week. I couldn't ask for a more professional and reliable, friendly person. She is very helpful and flexible around me working full time hours and having a hectic lifestyle. I will not go to anybody else now because I have built trust and a great relationship with Carly, her passion for pets is unquestionable. I trust her both in my home and my dog in the hands of her care, she’s always lovely with him, he’s always excited to see her and she spends a lot of time playing with him. Great price, great value, great choice ????  - K Gregory
