Experience with animals and own pets

Growing up, pets have always been a part of my life and a big piece of my heart, and I wouldn't have it any other way. From dogs and cats, to fish and chickens, to hamsters and rabbits – you name them, and they've been a part of our family! Currently we have two cats named Mia and Dakota. Mia is loving, friendly and always looking for a snuggle. Dakota is quite the feisty one and prefers her own space.

We also have four dogs. Two Yorkies named Cody and Bailey, who've had our hearts since the moment we laid our eyes on them. They love walks and always rock the Parkrun! The other two adopted pups are Tiffany, a sassy Chihuahua cross, who prefers to be pampered and does not enjoy exercise, and Emma, the most gentle, lovable (until it’s time for a bath) Great Dane.

We can’t forget the chickens! Chickens have absolutely stolen my heart and I can't imagine our life and breakfasts without them and their sunny side up morning eggs!

Additional Comments:

I cannot say enough good things!

What a wonderful experience with the whole team!

Robyn took such fantastic care of my fur-babies!

I am always very nervous to leave my kitties at home as they are previously feral kitties and are very nervous of new people.

They just adored Robyn and I got daily up dates and adorable photos.

I came home to happy and healthy kitties!

I am no longer nervous to plan holidays as I know my fur-babies will be well cared for!

I will definitely make use of your services again and would highly recommend Robyn to anyone!

A very big thank you!
