Here’s what some of our customers are saying


“We cannot recommend this service highly enough. We have 2 older dogs and have never had to put them into kennels before as we always had a friends/family to take care of them so this was the perfect alternative. Our sitter Adrian was fantastic and the dogs weren’t long about warming up to him. It was such peace of mind to get daily updates on the dogs with the added bonus of knowing that the house was also secure. This is a perfect solution and we shall definitely use the service again!”

Louise Delaney

Fantastic service.

“We have been using Pet Sitters Ireland for 3 months and its a fantastic service.
Nicky looks after our dog Mollie so well and he has helped her settle into her new surroundings. Mollie loves her daily walks with Nicky and i love the photos of a happy dog and the report of how she is getting on when we are at work.”

Fiona Lynch
