    Gill took my dog at very short notice and looked after her for a week……… FANTASTIC SERVICE.. I felt so much better knowing my pooch was in good hands and not in kennels. She came home fresh and excited and obviously very well cared for…. would recommend Gill to anyone!

  • Rachel says:

    Our dog has just spent the weekend with Gill. On picking hime up, he seemed so much more relaxed and happy than when we have picked him up from kennels in the past, infact I’m not so sure that he wanted to come home !!!! Would definately recommend.

  • Emily Hayes says:

    Thanks Gill, for looking after my pet tortoise Shelly. It was good to know that she was in safe hands. Hope the long walks you did with her weren’t too tiring !! Thanks. Emily.

  • Jude Gidney says:

    Thanks Gill for having my dogs for the second time. My puppy Harvey, loves coming to stay and I feel confident knowing he’s receiving lots of cuddles and walks. Lara, my elderly dog just thinks she’s in heaven at yours, rather than at Kennels – warm house and cuddles – I very much doubt she gets that service at a kennels. And it’s so nice to receive such a warm welcome from you 2 when I drop them off. I don’t think either of them or you wanted them to go last night. I recommend the service you offer highly. Thanks again, Jude

  • Shona Forbes says:

    Gill looked after our two cats this weekend, coming into our house to feed them morning and evening and also cleaning their litter tray. She provided a great service as the cats were happy staying in their own home rather than having to go to a cattery. It was so convenient and great value for money. Gill also called round the week before to meet me and the cats and spoiled them with treats. We would recommend Gill’s pet sitting services and will be calling her in the future. Thanks Gill!

  • Kim Court says:

    Lottie our 18 month old chocolate lab has just spent 6 days with Gill. She cried in the car coming home, It’s such a relief to know she was well looked after. We will definately be going back Once again thank you Gill and Gary and sorry about the duck.

  • Siobhan Taylor says:

    Gill regularly looks after my labrador, Lola. I’ve been so impressed with the service that Gill provides, Lola is very well cared for, enjoying walks, games and cuddles with Gill. Whenever I leave Lola with Gill, I am confident that she will have a great time and relieved to know that my dog is in good hands. I would definitley recommend to other pet owners. Thanks Gill, Siobhan.

  • Roman says:

    Corbs has just spent sixteen days staying with Gill whilst we were on holiday. Gill clearly looked after him as if he was her own and we came back to a very happy dog……………thanks Gill.

  • Caroline Beard says:

    Gill looked after my two cats at short notice, she did an excellent job. i liked how she left a report so i knew what they had been up to whilst i was away. felt so much better leaving them with Gill than at Kennels as you can tell she really loves animals and that was a great comfort to me. will not hesitate to use Gill in the future if manage to get away again.

  • Simon Wilson says:

    Gill has been fantastic with my dogs, i have 2 quite strong dogs Winston and Junior and gill was able to walk them easily, she came to see my dogs for a couple of days and i will be using Gill in the future as her prices are excellent value for the care she offers. Once again Thank you from Junior and Winston.

  • Rachel says:

    Our dog has had another happy weekend stay with Gill and Gary. It was also lovely to read the report of his activity and behaviour during his stay, which demonstated the excellent care and attention to detail that Gill provides in her pet sitting service. Thanks again Gill

  • angela..... dog warden... says:

    As i work full time i like a lot of others struggle with having to leave my dog jinx in the house for long periods during the week, Gill coming to walk him has been great, i can tell when i get home that he is happy and not wound up, im away for the night in a few weeks and jinx is going to stay with Gill overnight, i have no doubt he will be very well cared for and be happy as larry when i get home, and also she has very reasonable prices… cheers Gill… angie + jinx…. x

  • David Hood says:

    Used Gill for the first time a week back and was very happy with the service and very fair rates, many thanks and we will be using you again very soon thank you, regards David.

  • The Bond's says:

    Gill looked after my three Cats twice a day for a week, she did a fantastic job and it takes a lot to leave your pets with someone while your off and trying to relax. What I did like is the fact she came around to the house prior to the booking and took note of where everything was and a took all our considerations into account she is very trustworthy and I highly recommend her and we will be booking her again this year! Thanks, Mrs B.

  • Lynne and Graham Wilbraham says:

    Charlie our ‘needy’ cocker spaniel has just spent a very happy 2 weeks with Gill and seems to have had a ball ! We’ve never seen him looking so fit nd healthy after all his good care and long walks. He actually seemed to be missing Missy for a few days when he got home. I’m sure she’s not missing him as she now has her place on the bed back! Charlie will definitely be spending his holidays with Gill and Gaz again. Thanks, Lynne and Graham x

  • Jan and Dave says:

    First time we have left Tilly (12 month old Golden Lab) with Gill and Gaz .The service that Gill offers is second to none and I would highly recommend her. A nice email to keep us updated on Tilly`s stay gave us piece of mind to know that Tilly had settled in well. Two walks a day and lots of play. We will definetly use Gill and Gaz again and I am sure Tilly is looking forward to her next holiday tormenting Missy!!!! Thanks again, excellent Jan , Dave & Tilly x

  • Malcolm & Maria Walker says:

    Just picked up our over exicited, mad Cocker Spaniel Barney from Gill’s this morning. Not entirely sure he wanted to come home as he was obviously spoiled rotten. This was our first time that we had used Gill’s services and have already booked her for a week in August. The personal touch does it for us, who would drop a family member off at a prison yet that is what we have done for years by dropping off our pet at a kennel. Even great kennels are no match fot the familiar surroundings of a home and lots of personal attention. This is what you het when you leave your dog with Gill.

  • Susie says:

    Gill takes Liza for daily walks as well as looking after her in her home when we are away. She is trustworthy and reliable and most importantly Liza adores her! Gill has been great in helping to train her and after 2 months we have a former runaway rescue dog who comes back when she is called….sometimes 😉 I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Gill to anyone needing someone to help look after their pooch.

  • Robert Cragg says:

    Gill stepped into the breach when my usual cat-sitting neighbour was away. A very cost-effective solution – a lot cheaper than a cattery and less disruptive for the cats. Jasper and Willow tell me she did a great job, everything was clean and tidy when I got back, and I liked the log so I knew what had been done. Great service, would def use again.

  • Katie Lemmings says:

    As Millie is a rescue dog and we havn’t left her before, we were quite anxious about leaving her, but we neednt have worried. Gill & Gaz were great and Millie had a lovely time. Would definitely recommend Gill & Gaz to anyone needing pet sitting. Thank you very much for looking after Millie x

  • Joyce says:

    Gill stepped in to look after our 2 cats at the last minute, when our usual cat-sitting neighbours were going away. From the moment she called to introduce herself and meet the cats, she came across as friendly and trustworthy, and an obvious animal lover.
    Whilst we were away it was great fun to catch up with details of her visits on facebook – it was easy to see she had spent time giving cuddles and talking to them rather than just rushing in the house and putting food down.
    On our return we found a log of all her visits, with times and notes of everything she had done.
    She provided a very professional and valued service, and I would not hesitate in recommending her.
    Thanks Gill, I am sure we will be needing your services again. Joyce

  • Lisa Homer says:

    I was recommended to Gill and I am so glad I have found her! She offers a fantastic personal service, Gill was very thorough on her pre visit assessment and put up with me calling the first few nights to check on my puppy as it was the first time I had left him! He was extremely happy and relaxed when I returned and already have her booked in for next time I am away I would recommend her services to anyone and my report on his activities whilst I was away was a lovely touch!

  • Caron Rainton says:

    Gill looks after my puppy Holly everyday. Initially she made puppy care visits; feeding, cuddles and any toilet accidents. But then took her out for walks when Holly was old enough. Gill is very friendly and reliable. It is a real reassurance to know that Holly sees a friendly face and isn’t stuck indoors for too long. We always get a little report on what has happened and it makes going out to work feel less of a wrench (and makes me feel less guilty for not being there.)
    Gill is very flexible; my husband works shifts so the days required change and she accommodates this without any problems at all. We have already booked Holly in for the pet sitting service for our summer holidays as well as I didn’t like the idea of kennels.
    An ideal solution for working pet owners. Very highly recommended.

  • Eleanor & Karen says:

    We recently boarded our 6 month old whippet Milou with Gillian and Gary; we were given a really warm welcome and went away for the weekend feeling totally satisfied that our little pup was in caring, friendly, safe hands. When we returned to collect her, it was clear she had had a wonderful weekend without us and I’m not even sure she wanted to leave! We can HIGHLY recommend GGL Pet Services for home boarding – we’ll never use kennels again! With Gillian, pets live as part of her family and get as much love and exercise as they do at home!

  • Gemma says:

    Jazzy, our long- legged Jack Russell, has been walked by Gill for five months. Over the months we have seen a massive improvement in Jazzy’s behaviour towards other dogs. She is now much more sociable! We love coming home to read the daily dog report left by Gill to see what Jazzy has been up to.
    Jazzy boarded with Gill and Gaz when we went on holiday before Xmas and it made such a difference to us, knowing our dog was happy, cosy and loved.
    Jazzy loves Gill. This makes life so much easier. Thanks Gill x

  • Marie Taylor - County's End Veterinary Practice says:

    Due to a bereavement in my family, my family dog Diesel no longer got the walkies that he was used to. Gill to the rescue! Diesel absolutely ADORES Gill and looks forward to his afternoon walks :). You can truly tell that Gill is passionate about her job and that she is definitely an animal lover. I myself even look forward to seeing Gill & having a quick chat as she is always happy, always smiling no matter how bad the weather is!
    My Diesel is 10 years young and is struggling slightly with arthritis so it is vital that I get updates on how well he is walking, and Gill is brilliant at keeping an eye out for me. Also, if there has been a hiccup with another dog or if Diesel has had any sort of accident (his own fault – he is VERY clumsy!) she will let me know asap and, because I work at County’s End Vets, I can get him seen to almost immediately, which is very reassuring.
    Gill is very flexible and, due to my working hours (and lack of keys and fobs for my flat!) she will come and pick-up/drop of the key at my work, which makes things a lot easier.
    I normally don’t leave feedback unless I really feel that a service really deserves it! I have only just found out that Gill also does dog sitting etc so I will definitely bare that in mind for when I go on my holidays!
    Thanks again Gill for everything 🙂

  • rebecca north says:

    Gill has looked after our 2 dogs several times. She is great. the dogs love her and we have much better holidays knowing that they are well cared for and happy.

  • Julie & Iggy says:

    Gill provides a very professional but caring service. It’s the first time we,ve used this type of service and we were very impressed & could tell that our dog had been well looked after as she was very happy and relaxed when we picked her up after our two week holiday. Highly recommended! Thanks Gill.

  • Shena Cuming says:

    Gill looked after our two cats (Big Girl and Little Boy) while we were away on holiday; BG is starting to suffer from kidney problems and they both are normally stressed when we return. Gill did an absolutely fantastic job and, to my mind, went ‘the extra mile’ in the care and concern she showed them. It was a delight to come back to two pussy cats who were relaxed and calm; I am sure LB was missing Gill as he was definitely moping for a couple of days after we got back! Gill’s logs were a joy also- one for each of her twice daily visits. It was good to know that LB was up to his usual trick of bringing mice in as pressies, and BG continued to meow for her food. Normally, with a stranger, she hides away. Gill even vacced up LB’s long fur which he had deposited on the sofa!

    I thoroughly recommend Gill to anyone who wants their pet(s) cared for and cherished while they are away. We will definitley be asking Gill to loook after our pussy cats for all times in the future that we are away.

  • Sarah Richardson says:

    Gill is an angel! My dog Maisy loves going for her lunchtime walks with Gill, which gives me peace of mind when I’m out at work that Maisy isn’t lonely and is being well looked after. Maisy has come on leaps and bounds in her confidence since she started going for walks with Gill which is lovely to see. I enjoy getting home to read the latest reports on what Maisy has been up to!

    Gill also looks after my kittens when myself and my partner are away, which is fantastic as I am reassured that not only are they being fed and watered but are getting lots of cuddles too! Would recommend Gill to anyone 🙂

  • Mark and Suzanne says:

    Gill has been amazing with our new puppy Dotty. Always a pleasure to read the daily reports we get on how Dotty has been during her time with her. Gill is very reliable, flexible and keeps you well informed. Would have no hesitation recommending her to look after your dog. Peace of mind guaranteed.

  • Jayne and Bev Brannick says:

    Gill has looked after Ted since he was 10 weeks old and he loves her to bits……I think the feeling is mutual. Gill is reliable and very professional and has an obvious love of all animals. We feel very lucky to have found her on trust her implicitly with Ted. The daily written updates she leaves make us smile every day. We would not hesitate to recommend Gill to anybody.

  • Madelynn and Peter Robinson says:

    Hi Gillian,

    Thank you so much for looking after Alfie our Springer Spaniel.He was obviously very happy with you and we appreciated the text updates.
    Yours is a very professional and caring service We would not hesitate to leave a dog in your care in the future or to recommend your service to any one else.
    First class

  • Terrie & Keith Austerlands says:

    We have been using Gill’s cat sitting services now for 3 years, I wouldn’t want to use anyone else for our two Ragdoll’s Thornton and Darcy! Not only has Gill helped us out on last minute requests but her care and attention she gives our two pets is very comforting to us both, knowing not only are they being fed within their own environment but they also receive cuddles and precious one on one time. Gill sends us texts with updates and on our return we receive a diary of their day to day adventures, which on occasion has provided us with a giggle and a smile, as we all know I pets can be very unpredictable at times!

    Thanks Gill for all your support and we would highly recommend Gill to any other pet owner in need of a carer who truly cares! x

  • Kim says:

    My 3 girls absolutely love going to Auntie Gills, they actually pull us up the steps to see her. Unfortunately we recently lost our cocker spaniel who went blind around eighteen months before, the extra attention she required following going blind didnt faze Gill who went over and above to make sure she was happy and safe the whole time. Our Springer has arthritis and struggles jumping on the furniture, Gill allowed her to use a step up to her sofa so she could keep her routine. We have used other dog sitters previously but have never really fully relaxed on holiday, however we can leave them with Gill with no worries at all and the regular pics and texts with updates are a bonus. My family cannot recomend Gill enough she is just amazing and nothing is too much trouble.

  • Lucy & Phil says:

    Gill has walked our lovely blind collie Uri for at least the last 4 years. We are very happy with the service Gill provides – it is friendly and utterly trustworthy. You can tell Uri adores Gill. He has stayed with her boarding as well as being walked by her. Gill took him on after he had just arrived as a rescue and was very patient with him as he settled down. She has been very aware of and responsive to Uri’s particular needs as a blind dog -and we are confident he is good hands. Thank you Gill

  • Howard Buckley says:

    I was really pleased when I found someone that I could leave my 15 month old border doodle Archie with. Gill obviously loves dogs and understands their needs. Her house is ideally situated for great dog walks. I can relax when I am on holiday knowing that Archie will be happy and well looked after in her care

  • Pete and Mary says:

    We are so happy to have found Gill. We know that we can relax in the knowledge that our Border Collie will be safe, happy and well looked after. Gill is very professional, caring, helpful and trustworthy and we have no hesitation in recommending her service to others. Sam agrees!
