“Josie was amazing! The house was clean and tidy, the animals happy and fed perfectly, and the whole experience was seamless. I really can’t say there was anything more we would have wanted. Thanks so much for handpicking Josie for us. I hope you can get her again for us. We will try and give you heaps of notice before our next trip. All the best for 2017!”
“We have, on several occasions, left our property in Alice’s care – in her capacity as an Animal Aunt – taking care of our extensive lifestyle block and all our animals. We have left our beloved cats and dogs, valuable beef stock, and also an extensive collection of rare and endangered birds in her care – with complete confidence. On our return we found our property to be in immaculate condition and all our instructions, with regard to animal welfare, followed to the letter.
It has been our pleasure to be able to leave for any length of time, confident that our animals and property would be given absolute love and care, as we would give ourselves. Alice seems to have no problem adapting to whatever the situation, in hand, requires of her. She has a calm, caring, confident manner that we totally admired. We have no hesitation in recommending Alice in any position or project requiring positivity, capability, and where complete trust is required.“
“Well, what can I say? Your Aunts are absolute angels in disguise! Our animals were quite obviously very contented, healthy, happy and relaxed and were quite at home with their Aunts and I suspect sad to see them leave. The house was immaculate when we returned and even the laundry had been done – we were completely astonished as that was well over and above the call of duty and certainly way beyond our expectations. Linda and Jim are a delightful couple. Linda and Jim were kind enough to stay in touch and even email some photos of their adventures.
AND .. if all that was not enough they cared for the garden, even dead-heading roses etc. Truly amazing people and wait, there’s more! It would seem that Linda had very crowded bed as she shared it with little Chanelle, Chablis and one of the cats! Quite obviously Linda and Jim were totally accepted as surrogate Mum & Dad! Our sincere thanks for the services your organisation provides; your personal attention throughout the whole process means we had great peace of mind. Sincerely Gilly & Stan”
“We are very happy that Elizabeth & Graham came to look after Ned and Milly. The dogs liked them straight away which is always a good sign. I really don’t like leaving the dogs when we go away and Elizabeth and Graham were very understanding and not fazed by my many instructions! We got text updates on how the dogs were which is reassuring. When we got back the dogs were relaxed and happy and the house clean and tidy. We could not have asked for more – they were perfect Aunts. Thanks.”
“Linda and Jim were amazing! Bruin, Misia and Jordi were all happy and content. Linda has sent me pictures from their walk on Friday which I loved. The house was spotless and Jim had fixed the lawnmower and done the lawns – I think the place looked even better than when we left it! Basically it was an even better service than I expected. They had even rearranged some doggie blankets in a much better fashion than I had them and remembered to give the kids their advent calendar treats! Thanks so much.“
Your service was amazing right from the moment I made contact with you. You were very efficient and professional throughout and I really appreciated your quick response - given the unrealistic time frame you had to work to (due to last minutes changes at my end). Regarding the Aunt: Graeme was fantastic. We came home to a very happy LEXI and the house was spotless. I also liked how Graeme made contact with me immediately after confirming the booking; he put my mind at ease about leaving LEXI and our home in his capable hands.
I will definitely be using your services again - only next time I will give you more notice! Thanks again.
“We love Alice! She has come back to us to look after our Schnauzer: Daisy, time & time again (as well as our beloved old Miniature Schnauzer some years back); and she is the most perfect Animal Aunt we could have. Daisy adores her and is always impeccably looked after, loved, walked, fed & stroked to perfection! The house is always looked after to the highest standard and there is always something delicious to greet us in the oven when we return.
Since meeting Alice many years ago, we have had 2 little boys, who love her as much as the dog does and she even lends a hand with them whilst we are faffing about with packing and unpacking! We only wish Alice lived here all year round as we miss her when she is gone. Debbie”
“Peter and Colleen were fantastic. Excellent communication with us at all times; and the house was very neat and tidy. We came home to a very happy dog – so a five star rating!”
"Thank you, Alice. Your live-in Animal Aunts, who provide pet sitting & house sitting duties, as well as the many extra facets of complete care and love of our precious animals and our home – are superb! When we first used your service we were a little nervous. But we felt reassured by your confident, friendly and professional manner and how you patiently answered all sorts of questions; which made us feel very comfortable.
The many services of your competent and experienced, caring Aunts has seen us use your brilliant service several times now. Sometimes we get an Animal Aunt who has been here before; but sometimes - if they are already booked elsewhere - we get another Aunt who is always as good as the previous. They are all wonderful – with their obvious passion and love of animals and their many skills, caring for our babies and our home in our absence."
“I must admit I was a little worried about leaving Ruby, especially with people we didn’t even know. Upon meeting both Val and Ron I soon realised we had nothing to worry about. Ruby immediately showed she was very comfortable with them and was calm and interested in them. They had a very calming effect on her. She is an old dog with a few health issues; they immediately understood her conditions and assured us she would be fine.”
“I was very happy with our Aunts: Dacre & Shirley – they were a lovely couple who I did not hesitate to leave in charge of my pets and home. I came home to happy pets – they did not even sulk as they normally do because I had left them! I also came home to a clean, tidy home with the sheets already washed and on the line. I would not hesitate to recommend them, and would love them to come back again one day – perhaps for a little longer.
I hope they would feel they would like to come back here also. Where would we be without these services, as my pets would have hated being away from home and it would have been very hard for me to leave them. Now that I know about your services I am sure I will go away again, so thank you to all and for setting up such a service."
“Thanks to you and Chrissy, we really enjoyed our trip away. We were very satisfied with Chrissy’s service. Her cleaning and washing service was a surprise for us because we did not expect that. Thank you so much! We are planning a longer holiday next year and we are sure to ask for your service again."
“Tazzy Is very happy, the house was immaculate – Penny had cleaned it to the highest standard (even better than my housekeeper does .. and that is pretty amazing)! She also weeded my flower garden and the vege garden is thriving; if it needed watering she obviously took care of that too. She had washed the sheets and towels and they were all on the line and dry when I arrived home. Plus dinner was in the fridge, ready to be heated! It was fantastic to have Penny back to look after my little man – I think they both enjoyed the experience. Certainly I was not sent to Coventry – which he would normally do to me if I go away even for the day – so he was happy. Many thanks for helping me out – especially at this time and with the earthquakes etc.”
“Our Aunt – Louise - was a dream. Fab in fact, so thank you. Willis can be a handful at times so she did a great job. Thanks again for finding Louise – she is one of life’s lovely people. Rachel”
“We returned home to find an immaculate house and a very, very happy dog. I cannot think of anything else they could have done to make the service even better. They were very professional and caring. We would not have been able to go away had it not been for your service. Once again thank you for providing this stress free caring service for our Ruby. Please thank Val and Ron for us; what a lovely couple. Sandy”
