Best carers for your pets

We are a reliable couple and understand the importance of caring for your home and pets. Ena has been a school Maths teacher before and now doing tuition via online. David worked in a charity organisation for over 20 years and recently retired. After my retirement last October 2021, we decided to return to the UK in May 2022 and have been travelling as well as pet sitting when possible. We don't have our own pets now but love to care for animals. We have looked after Brittany Spaniel, Irish Wolfhound, Labrador, Golden Retriever, Jack Russell, Staffy, Rottweiler, Border Collie, Great Danes, Cockapoos, German Shepherd, St Bernard, British Pointer and more, Cats such as Rag Dolls and Tabby, Guinea pig, fish & chooks/parrots and horses. One day we are hoping to have our own pets when we have a back garden.

David and Ena are the most delightful couple. We spoke to them before they arrived and they reassured us that they would look after our beloved Milly Dog and our home as their own. Well they did both in spades. They sent us regular photographic updates, which was most reassuring, not only of Milly happily resting at home but also on the bus and the train too, they took her with them on a number of trips out, which she clearly loved. They dealt with a huge shower leak and oversaw the emergency ... MORE

David and Ena were fabulous housesitters. Our Cavachon dog was well cared for with lots of cuddles and daily walks. They made a huge effort to win over our cat and both pets got new toys for Christmas which was a spoil for them! Communication was professional and we got regular updates and photos while we were away. The house was in good order on our return and we got homemade carrot cake and bread to welcome us back home! A wonderful experience and we would recommend David and Ena highly.
KALINKA (Cobham England, Dec 2023 - 3 weeks)
This was our first time of using house sitters and we were very nervous about leaving our home, dogs and guinea pigs behind. We did not need to worry – David and Ena were amazing from the moment we met them over facetime through to our return from holiday. Their communication and updates whilst we were away was wonderful and very much appreciated. We loved seeing pictures of the exhausted dogs after their adventures each day. The house was so warm, clean and welcoming upon our return and David ... MORE
KELLY (Brackley , Oct 2023 - 1 week 4 nights)
David & Ena were wonderful house sitters, great communication from the outset and Daisy warmed to them immediately. We received daily updates and Daisy was well exercised and cared for. It gave us great peace of mind knowing that David and Ena were caring for our dog and home.
MARK (Swansea Wales, Sep 2023 - 1 week 2 nights)
We couldn’t have been happier with David and Ena who are a lovely engaging couple who obviously had an affinity with our dogs. Communications were excellent and we had full confidence in them from the first time we spoke. The house was beautifully kept and our plants tended in the garden. We would definitely ask them to sit again and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to others.
ANDY (Reading England, Aug 2023 - 1 week 2 nights)
David & Ena were a delight! Super house sitters and wonderfully communicative with regular updates and pictures of our spoiled pooch. House was immaculate when we returned & welcomed us home with a bottle of fizz and a platter of sandwiches. Dog was very happy & we have absolutely no hesitation in recommending them - providing you don't clash with us asking them back!
TIM (WINCHESTER England, Aug 2023 - 2 weeks 3 nights)
Thank you so much Ena and David for looking after Amber so well, she looked so lovely on our return due to the wash and shampoo you gave her! Really enjoyed meeting them both, thoroughly lovely people and couldn't ask for anything more after returning to a clean and spotless home with Amber clearly looked after so well with lots of walks and cuddles. Absolutely highly recommended, thank you!
DEBRA (Flitton England, Jul 2023 - 1 week 3 nights)
David and Ena were the perfect house sitters and we were very happy to leave our two cats in their capable hands. I can wholeheartedly recommend them.
ERIKA (Hove England, Jul 2023 - 5 nights)
David and Ena looked after our house, garden and hens for three weeks in June/July. Communication was prompt and clear beforehand and they have been reliable, conscientious and caring throughout. We are very pleased to have found them and even more so that they will be here again later in the year. They are highly recommended. Roy and Clare
ROY AND CLARE (Newton Abbot England, Jun 2023 - 3 weeks)

JENETTE (Driffield England, May 2023 - 2 weeks)
David and Ena were a perfect fit. They took Skipper, my dog, on a bus and train which he'd never done before. They were very caring to both Skipper and Indie the cat Both animals seemed unconcerned by my absence. The house was left very clean and tidy. Ena had made me a coronation pie and recorded the coronation for me to watch as I missed it as I was in transit. So I ate that while watching the recording, what a treat!!! I highly recommend them to anyone. They found their way round the ... MORE
CAROL (Trowbridge England, Apr 2023 - 1 month 1 week)
Ena and David were our very first house sitters and they were simply amazing. From first contact they were approachable, friendly, responded to messages quickly and wanted to know all about our border collie and ourselves. In fact our dog is still looking for them in their bedroom. They kept us regularly updated about the house and dog and have left our house in tip top condition. We would whole heartedly recommend them. Thank you David and Ena and we hope to see you again one day. PS Lady Leia ... MORE

David and Ena were great house sitters, super communication and so helpful when small issues arose they took amazing care of Louis our dog and our chickens and kept the house perfectly.

EMMA (NEV AND CAROL) (Street England, Nov 2022 - 2 months)
My dog had not been well leading up to my holiday so I had real concerns about leaving her. But David & Ena were kind, caring and responsible and I had every confidence leaving Connie in their care.. When I returned I could tell Connie had been well cared for. I would be happy to recommend David & Ena and would certainly use them again.
SARAH (Stafford England, Nov 2022 - 2 weeks 1 day)
David and Ena are delightful and did a great job looking after our dogs, who have never had so many walks, and were relaxed and happy on our return. The house was immaculate and they coped with problems that always seem to arise, with humour. I would 100% recommend them for any sit and hope to keep in touch for sits in the future.
SARA (Tenterden England, Sep 2022 - 2 weeks 3 days)
David & Ena have taken extremely good care of Florence, Lola, Dora (who is a challenge), Twinkle, Maud and Gilbert. They posted regular updates on their dog walks, which was lovely. They are a delightful couple and it is testament to their outstanding care that all of the pets are happy, healthy and relaxed. We have no hesitation in recommending this super couple. Thank you for your wonderful care or our pets. Julie & Richard
JULIE (Sudbrook England, Aug 2022 - 2 weeks 6 days)
David and Ena have done a wonderful job of looking after both our home and pets. They sent us daily updates with photos showing happy and relaxed pets. Merlin who is very shy and timid even came out in the evenings to spend time with them which is a testament to the type of people they are. Communication leading up to the house sit and it made the process so much easier having spoke and seen both David and Ena prior to their arrival. From the bottom of our hearts we would like to thank them ... MORE
WENDY (Totton , Aug 2022 - 1 week)
David and Ena were fantastic housesitters. They were great with communication both before and during their stay. My animals were all fit, well and happy throughout. But mostly I am grateful for their wonderful attention to my garden and pots during the HOTTEST of summers. I came home to everything still blooming, which was lovely. Of course, the dogs and cats were also blooming happy, so that was excellent. I would not hesitate to recommend them as housesitters, and thank them very much ... MORE
MUFFIN (HENLEY ON THAMES England, Jul 2022 - 3 weeks)
A really super couple - David and Ena came to stay the night before so we got to know each other and walked etc. Looked after our pet family really well, and our home - very thoughtful, trustworthy and lovely people. I would highly recommend!
