Little did I know that the flyer coming though my door would be a solution to so many of my problems! Lynne and Iain have looked after my dogs, cat and chickens with genuine affection, repaired my Victorian summer house with skill and care, painted inside my house to a very high standard, and completed general maintenance jobs, including working in my garden, with professionalism and real hard graft. Not only would I not hesitate to recommend them, I would genuinely say that they are reliable, trustworthy and a godsend to any busy household.
I just want to say a heartfelt thank you for looking after Sylvie while we were away. You did such a good job I could honestly tell the moment we walked in the house. You had obviously been extremely generous with your ear tweaking and TLC because she was so laid back she was almost horizontal and she barely acknowledged our presence! Normally when she comes home from the cattery she is so starved of affection she doesn't leave us alone for hours and miaows repeatedly to maximise the guilt.
Thank you too for watering the houseplants - and I'm guessing you also watered the garden as everything was blooming. A wonderful service - one I shall highly recommend to all my friends.
Lynn, Ashton Hayes
I have had the pleasure of knowing Iain and Lynne for some time now. I first contacted them as I needed reliable support locally, for helping me to take care of two very lovely, young and excitable Labradors. I had tried other pet care services in the past and had been badly let down, with them failing to turn up because of bad weather or over booking. When you have pets that you care about, you want to know that they are well looked after so reliability is crucial.
Iain and Lynne have provided me with a brilliant service, the two Labradors (nicknamed The Girls) love them and are walked daily during the week by them. Rain or shine they turn up and on bringing them back home, settle them down making sure they have fresh water. When needed, Iain and Lynne are very responsive to short notice requests, they always come to the rescue.
The Girls and I can't thank them enough - a great service.
I have used this service throughout the last year and found them friendly and caring. Lynne very quickly developed a good relationship with my very shy cat. This put my mind at ease whilst on holiday, especially as my cat is quite capable of ignoring people and sulking when we are away! Lynne obviously likes pets and understands their needs. Our cat eats well while we are away and looks good, healthy and happy when we return.
We will certainly use the service again and we can go away in the full knowledge that our cat (and house) are in good hands.
We moved to Kelsall 2 years ago and were so pleased to find Iain and Lynne. They are great with our dog, he was happy to go on walks with them from day one and has been so happy and settled here ever since. They have never let us down and it means everything to me to have somebody there who I can call on.
From his lunchtime walk to popping in during the evening when we're out and giving him his dinner, they offer a flexible, friendly and reasonable service and have saved the day many a time for us! I don't know what we would do without them.
A great big thank you for all your help, especially during January this year when I was too poorly to do any walks myself and you were there for us.
Pet to Vet:
Iain and Lynne were a great help when I needed to transport my dogs to the vets. Before finding their website, I had called several other companies, that were not able to provide the help I needed. Neither of my dogs had ever been in a pet taxi before, and one of my dogs can be wary of new people. Iain took the time to make sure my dogs were comfortable, and put aside time to get to know them. I think my dogs actually liked their trip to the vets!
We moved to Kelsall in 2009 unsure we'd find a suitable dog walker for our big daft dog, but meeting Iain and Lynne removed those doubts immediately. They really care about the animals they look after, as if they were their own. Its obvious our dog loves being with Iain, she comes back from walks happy and shattered.
I would only use a walker I know my dog is happy to be with. Whilst on our holidays, Iain has even travelled to my in-laws in Helsby to walk the dog, and popped up and checked our house while we were away.
This is just to say a big thank you to Lynne for her continued help with my four cats; I was initially apprehensive about using a cat sitting service. Lynne, with her professional and caring attitude towards pets has put my mind completely at rest. What would I do without you now Lynne! Thank you so much!
