Mrs W, Kirtlington


This is my Bowseypup, after lovely Jackie has taken him for walkies, he is so relaxed & happy (& tired) when I get home from work & he is so excited to see her, I wouldn't ask just 'anyone' to care for him & we can't recommend her highly enough. She is fantastic!! 

Ms B, Begbroke (comment can be found on our facebook page under visitor posts)


Jackie has looked after our house rabbit Mary Lou on a number of occasions now and we really couldn't imagine anyone looking fter her as well as Jackie has. Mary Lou always comes back to us in great condition, happy and healthy. Jackie is incredibly personable and clearly loves the animals in her care as much as their owners. Furthermore, Jackie has gone above and beyond for us and really got us out of a tight spot. After Christmas I had booked a taxi to take me to collect Mary Lou but the estate was not big enough for her cage. Jackie instead delivered the cage back to us, following in her van. Really above and beyond. In my experience, Jackie gives exemplary sevice and I couldn't imagine leaving our pet with anyone else.

Jackie has been looking after Billy for walkies a few times a week since he was 3 months old - he is now 18 months old. He also stayed with her for an overnight stay and enjoyed that very much and was not stressed at all when he came home (it was the first time we had left him). Jackie is alway reliable flexible and kind - I have valued her services and will miss her (so will Billy).

Mrs D, Kidlington


Jackie offers a very professional animal sitting service. She looked after our lovely rabbits Bramble and Thumper many times before we moved to Cambridgeshire. We were delighted to hear that she was able to look after our new rabbits Marley and Tigga when we returned 4 years later. We would recommend Jackie to anyone looking for a professional, caring animal boarding service.

Our rabbit has been staying with Jackie for years - she knows how to take care of animals and it is great to be able to leave him in good hands.

Mr S, Oxford


Thanks Jackie. Sylvie looks really happy. Thanks once again for taking such good care of her.

Mrs L, Abingdon


Thank you so much for taking care of our cats Elsa and Smokey for us. They weren't at all bothered to see us when we got back which I take as a very good sign that they had full stomachs and enjoyed their fuss.

Dr P, Kidlington


Thank you so much ~ I wish I could export you west. Having you look after Monty and Bailey has relieved me of the biggest pressure. I don't know what I would have done without you. Thank you for your kindness, flexibility and professionalism with the little fellas ~ they will miss you.

Louise, Wytham


Wishing you lots of long & happy walks in the sunshine in 2017. Thanks for taking such good care of Izzy for another year. Lots of love, Izzy and family
