Testimonials

Here are a few testimonials from people who have used Sit! Stay! House & Animal Sitting (formerly Sit! Stay! Animal Care)..

Feel very grateful that our animals are so well cared for by Chris. She is professional, thorough and considerate and it is wonderful to be able to enjoy time away from home knowing our pets are in her caring and competent hands. 🙏😻🙏              – Clover Parker-Winter, Christmas 2019.

Just returned from a week away with Chris house & dog sitting. Happy girls and my house cleaner than when we left it.
We can’t recommend Chris highly enough. Superb service and peace of mind while you are away.                                      – Lindsey Hazelton, June 2019.

Totally reliable and absolutely brilliant with all our assorted animals we cannot recommend Chris highly enough. It is such a relief to know that we are able to go away and we do not need to worry about them or indeed the house and garden…her service is invaluable… Happy owners of chickens, ducks, kune kune pigs, pygmy goats, two dogs and one cat!                                                 – Alisoun and Alec Bilous, April 2019.

Chris had to look after my 2 outdoor cats, one difficult cat. I was kept updated by text so I knew what was going on, really appreciated. A great service and a good price. Nice to know my cats were in safe hands, highly recommended service which is friendly and professional.

‘Versatile, Reliable, Committed.’
We have been employing Chris in a variety of roles for over seven years. Her commitment to her work shines through every time, her first priority always being the animals and property in her care. She is flexible and accommodating, stepping in at short notice on occasions with a ‘can do’ attitude and can be relied on to ‘get on with the job’ in a calm and efficient manner. We would not hesitate to recommend her services.

– Mr & Mrs H, Tewkesbury, 2015

Chris looked after our house – and menagerie of horses, dogs and cats – for three weeks whilst we were abroad in the Winter of 2016. She was superb. Not only did Chris keep the house immaculate but also the stables, yard and tack room. She cared for the horses, exercised the dogs and kept us posted by email of everything that was going on whilst we were away. The holiday was one we had looked forward to for a long time and we are able to relax and enjoy it in the knowledge that the house and animals were all in not just safe but expert hands. I can thoroughly recommend Chris’ services to anyone. A more diligent, honest, thorough and competent person we could not have wished for.

We have been using Chris regularly to help us with our horses and for house sitting for a while now, and have booked her again for later in the year.  Chris is invaluable to us – we work long hours and knowing that we can rely on her to help us out with our horses is such a relief. Especially as our horses are not the easiest!  She is trustworthy and reliable, and we would highly recommend her.

– Mr & Mrs M, Ashchurch, Feb 2017

I can’t rate the service Chris provides highly enough. Our animals love her! She is extremely reliable and takes the trouble to get to know your pets and individual requirements before her first stay. Our two dogs have very different needs: one a good long walk and the other, due to old age, a quick game of ball on the field opposite our house. This can be time consuming but Chris, anxious to maintain the dogs’ regular routines, is happy to oblige. She’s a considerate house guest too. (Mindful of how much washing holidays generate, she offered to bring a sleeping bag for a short stay.) Pet care when away used to be a real worry for us – often meaning we couldn’t make family functions – but, happily, this is no longer the case.

– Mrs B, Puckrup

We booked Chris to look after our house full of pets (Dog, Cat, Rabbit x 2, Hamster, and giant African land snail!) for 1 week in Oct 2014. We could not have been happier. Chris’ attention to detail was very comforting. We received daily email updates that kept us completely informed. We would thoroughly recommend her.

– Mr & Mrs C, Tewkesbury

I’ve asked Chris on many occasions to  look after my many animals, ( horses right down to the smallest being our fish). At first I’d worry when I went away, but now it’s totally stress free with Chris around. Her service is reliable and of an exceptionally high standard, my animals love her and I wouldn’t use anyone else!

– Mrs T-N, Bredon

Dear Chris, Thank you so much for looking after our fluffy boys Tom + Jerry.  It has given us such peace of mind to have found a lovely lady to care for them whilst we’re away.  Hope they behave.

– Mr & Mrs C, Walton Cardiff

Chris is a genuine lovely lady and done fantastic job not just looking after our 3 cats but also our home while we was on holiday, she even sent us emails just saying how it was going which gave us such peace of mind. She even had no quibbles over having to administer medication to one of my cats. I would highly recommend her and will definitely use again.

– Mr & Mrs R, Northway

I have known and employed Chris Day for over 20 years.  She has always been 100% reliable, honest, and trustworthy.  She has looked after the house, my horses and cared for a variety of animals and is extremely knowledgeable on her horse care.  I have no hesitation in recommending her as a dependable housesitter.

– Mrs C, Walton Cardiff

I was injured recently and so was unable to look after my mare properly.  I was passed Chris’ details by another livery on my yard who had used her when she went on holiday and recommended her to me.  Chris was absolutely amazing, due to the unexpected circumstances and urgency for help, she came out to visit me and my mare the very same day that I contacted her.  I was reassured by her calm nature and easy going personality.  My mare, who can be a bit of a handful, also took to her and was relaxed throughout the week or so that Chris helped me.  Chris is punctual, tidy, confident with horses and very reasonably priced.  I would have no hesitation in recommending Chris and would definitely use her again in the future.

– Ms I, Coombe Hill, May 2015

When I was let down a week before my holiday, I contacted Sit Stay! Animal Care with little hope but I had a helpful reply straight away. Chris is accommodating and caring and I can’t praise her highly enough. We met up a couple of days later and my dog took to her straight away. I was so relieved to leave Lucy with such a kind and competent person and the almost daily texts and emails meant I didn’t have to worry at all during my holiday. Nothing was too much trouble and I would thoroughly recommend her.
