Anyone know of any dog sitters Cardiff/Caerphilly please?
« on: February 13, 2011, 11:28:04 AM »
Hi. Does anyone know of any good local dog sitters where higgins my fourpaws dog can go and stay with the dogsitter? Ideally he would need to be the only dog. This would only be for a couple of nights as I need to go to a funeral but unfortunately, his normal dog sitters are booked. He gets stressed in kennels - eats his bed and scratches his nails until he looks like he's had a manicure! Need info urgently please . Thanks

I've used Sit and Stay for walking Mac over the last few weeks. I'll pm you her details as she does offer home from home and home care ..

Thanks. Will email her but think in the past she had a few dogs and ideally Higgins needs to be by himself . Thanks anyway

Have you thought about someone coming in to your house instead?

Thanks for replies. I know Maxine well. Generally prefer dog sitters if possible. What about good kennels as a last resort?

My friend is using Care4Pets they have dog sitters in the Barry/ Vale area, it may be worth a try.

We use care4pets and they've been great with the dogs. Ours have to go to animal free homes too. My advice is be prepared for them to take a while to get back to you.
I love my dogs more than chocolate!
