We are proud of the work we do, and provide our customers a thorough, thoughtful and professional service.

It is important that you feel comfortable leaving your pets, and access to your house, in the hands of people you can trust.

Below are some testimonials we have received from some of our customers:

Wendy was amazing, managing to coax my cat out of hiding and interact with her. This must have taken time and patience. It is cleat that Wendy loves her job and I recommend her unreservedly.
- Laureen Gillam
Thanks Wendy, Josie seemed very contented on our return. Much better than previous holidays when we have placed her in a cattery, which she seems to really dislike.
Thanks again, we will look at using Pet Sitters in the future.
- Janine Pugh
We used to put our Willow into a cattery and when she came home she would be skittish and you couldn’t leave the room without her panicking and following crying. This time we had the Pet Sitters come to our home and when we returned from holiday, Willow came inside, said hello and then went about her day. She was so relaxed it was wonderful, will definitely be using pet sitters again. Great peace of mind that my fur baby is okay when we are away.
- Tracey - Richmond
Excellent professional service, less stressful as no need to take the cat to a cattery (she often knows we are leaving and goes missing!) Peace of mind to know someone was taking care of our cat and keeping an eye on the house whilst we were away. Would highly recommend.
- Nicola Cunningham
We used Pet Sitters for the firdt time while we were away over the summer holidays. We were so impressed by their services. They are friendly, professional and easy to communicate with. Both our cats seemed completely happy and comfortable when we returned which was a huge relief. Thank you so much, we will definitely be using Pet Sitters again!
I would recommend Pet Sitters NZ to anyone planning a trip away. My dog Ben had a great time and I was completely confident in leaving my best friend in Christine’s capable hands.
- Diane Smith
This was the first time that Bella and Sydney our two older Sydney Silkies had been cared for outside of our family. From our very first meeting with Irene, I was confident that they would be in good hands while we were away. The regular WhatsApp snapshots of two happy and pampered pups did the rest to reassure us that they were being well cared for and loved. I returned to two happy dogs who have settled back into their home routine without missing a beat. Thank you Irene and Pet Sitters for a great doggy holiday home experience.
- Sue M - Richmond
I am always a little apprehensive about leaving y two boys (cats) behind , but I can honestly say that after I met the pet sitter, I was totally reassured. The text while I was away was also much appreciated. The sitter even played games with them - they loved it!
My animals were very happy when we got home and I could tell they had been well looked after. I will definitely use Pet Sitters again and have already recommended them to other family/friends. Thanks Wendy!

We very much appreciated the weekly emails and photos of our cats. We felt very relaxed knowing that someone was looking after them each day. Many thanks for a great job! The cats were fat and happy!
- Fran and Ian (Richmond)
I can’t speak highly enough of the caring, professional reliable service Pet Sitters provide. Wendy has walked my little Shih Tzu since she was a pup, 7 years now. She goes out with all the big dogs & Wendy has better control of her than I do while out walking! She comes home absolutely exhausted so I know she has had a great time.

Pet Sitters have also visited twice a day to care for my cat over the years while away on holiday. The personal texts received from the sitters are a lovely personal touch, then to arrive home to find my cat very relaxed & happy with a lovely note left on my bench from my cat :-)

It’s not just a matter of going into a home & feeding animals. The staff go beyond the call of duty by spending quality time with my pets, cuddles, house checked, mail cleared daily, curtains & lights adjusted day & night for security not to mention very very happy paws.

Many thanks to Wendy & the Team. You’re amazing.
— Irene Steele (Millie & Snuggles)
We used Pet Sitters for the first time while we were away over the summer holidays. We were so impressed by their services. They are friendly, professional and easy to communicate with. Both our cats seemed completely happy and comfortable when we returned which was a huge relief. Thank you so much, we will definitely be using Pet Sitters again!
— Amber Neale
As Shilo is still a puppy I was nervous leaving her. The service Judy provided was incredible and constant flow of pictures and communication was just fantastic. I knew my puppy was in safe hands and was having a ball and I was able to relax and enjoy my holiday overseas. Thanks again for your amazing service.
— Loretta Geary
Faultless service from the initial consultation right through to when we arrived home after our trip away. It was very re-assuring knowing all three of our boys (2 dogs and a cat) were being lovingly cared for while we were away.
— Mark & Helen Le May
Our Westie is prone to separation anxiety. Even the best of boarding kennels or a house sitter who perhaps needs to work and is therefore out for long periods of time cannot provide the full-time human companionship that he has come to expect meaning anxiety can be an issue for him. By using the doggie fostering service he was cared for in a loving home with all the luxuries this little dog has come to know and expect, plus more! We came home to a happy, relaxed dog who I think would have quite happily waved us goodbye again had we not picked him up. His foster family reported having seen no signs of anxiety, and why would he when he had their undivided attention 24/7 just the way he likes it.

We will have no hesitation in using this service again and look forward to enjoying our future holidays guilt free knowing that he is in the best of hands.
— Christine Harford
I thought your paperwork about the history and needs of my pets was very good. Great to have feedback about how they were when visited.
— Suzanne Robinson
Pet Sitters were very professional and obviously really loved animals. It was awesome getting a little text photo whilst we were away and seeing our cat be very calm and happy when we returned – thanks so much.
— Kristen Slauenwhite
We were very happy to be able to go away and know that our boys were well cared for and we didn’t have to worry and loved receiving the text updates. Thank you so very much.
— Lex and Donna Allfrey (Niko and Zeusy’s mum and dad)
Thank you so much. We were delighted with the service.
Thank you for going the extra mile by putting our dogs food under cover when it was likely to rain, for the pictures of him on his walks and for the extra security of the Pet Sitters ID tag.
We would highly recommend Wendy and her team to all pet owners.
- Caroline Smith
I find your service to be easy and relaxed. I have n worries when going away and leaving Franklin, Eeyore and Clawdia in your capable care. Thank you for the follow up text to make sure I was home and for what you do - I certainly appreciate all you do.
-Raewyn Valentine
Great service. Fergie had been bullied and 2 of the 3 kennels we had previously used. She was very happy with your lovely people, shame she let herself down by stealing the lady’s lunch!
-Roger Blissett
I just want to say how much we appreciate the fantastic service you provide. Our two girls come home happy, healthy and obviously very well cared for. Your care of them is top notch and you work really hard to accommodate their and our needs, even last minute! Your attention to detail is great and your communication to us during their stay is very much appreciated.
— Emily, Will, Freda and Junko!
Great service – thank you
— Sharon Petrie
Thank you so much for being so efficient, professional and thoughtful. I went away with total ease, not worrying at all, knowing that my little lad was in the best of hands.

Shirley and Terry are the loveliest people. It’s such a sigh of relief to meet people who are of exactly the same mind about our treasures and the love and care they need. I am thrilled to bits about this.

Scoots had a wonderful time and I thank you again.

I have already recommended you to a lady I met yesterday. I am ever so happy and think that your business is excellent. Thanking you again.
— Julie Demilliac
It was comforting to go away and be relaxed and not worry about Eeyore and Franklin as I knew they were happy in their own environment being cared for by people who genuinely love pets and adore them as much I do.
— Raewyn Valentine
Cannot say enough about how great the service is you provide. It is so important for me to know that my dogs are well cared for in my absence. When I went to pick the boys up they were very relaxed and comfortable with the foster family you provided and at a very affordable cost so thank you thank you thank you!! Absolutely would recommend your service.
— Sue Bennett
Shirley and Terry were the perfect ‘foster parents’ for Minnie and Muppett. From the first time I met them I felt totally comfortable that they would care for them beautifully. Knowing that they had previously been breeders and had experience with Cavaliers (and also having one themselves) meant that that they understood all the little ‘oddities’ which cav’s tend to have. Their home was perfectly set up with outdoor flow and it was great that they also had their usual walks at the beach. Minnie needed antibiotics and this was no trouble at all for them. Minnie and Muppett seemed comfortable and happy at our first meeting and also when I picked them up. I think the best thing was that they genuinely cared for and about them – and it showed. I would definitely use the service again. Many, many thanks!!
— Zarina Pallamountain
I thought the service was excellent, much easier than take to a cattery. Lovely people and great service. Would definitely use again.
- Jonelle McKay
I love the one to one care for my dog. She wasn’t anxious and didn’t miss me as she was given the same care that I give her.
— Katherine O’Donoghue
Very professional service. I thought you matched Billy really well to the Foster Family – well done!
— Paula Roberts
I thought your paperwork about the history and needs of my pets was very good. Great to have the feedback about how they were when visited.
- Suzanne Robinson
Always fantastic service thank you
— Karen Anker
Very Professional Service
— Bev Armstrong
We are very happy with the service provided by The Pet Sitters when we left our two precious dogs and other pets in their care. Wendy and Vicky were very friendly, professional and well-organised and we really appreciated the text updates from the dogs when we were away. They also brought in the mail… Highly recommend them.

— Anne Letham-White and Bevan White.
Everything was very smooth and I was able to go away feeling my dog was being cared for. In fact probably more spoilt than when at home!
— Gill Knight
Very good service, communication and value. Would definitely recommend to others.
- Claire Baxter
I really appreciated the text messages letting me know that contact with the cat had been made and all was well. Thank you! I was very happy with Pet Sitters and will certainly use their excellent service again.
— Colleen Dallimore
Very happy with the service and care provided. Having two dogs, 1 very young and 1 very old this service was wonderful in letting them stay home together. I have already highly recommended your service to a number of people.
— Vanessa Wilson
Very good, quick response to my late request for a foster family and in a holiday period too! My Schnauzer very happy with her foster mum and the routine she had with lovely yard and two walks a day, as I myself do. Obviously well looked after – I will definitely do it again.
— Sandie Abbott
I would recommend Susan to everyone – she is amazing and I knew she looked after Molly very well. She seemed very much at ease with Susan and she said she would have Molly back again if we used foster sitters again.
— Cec Lineham
My dog came home exhausted and slept for ages, which was great because it gave me time to unpack and relax after a long journey home!
— J Nickson
Really loved the personal touch of notes and text message updates for piece of mind. Excellent, reliable service (so important if you’re travelling and leaving your loved ones at home). Also our dogs were better behaved after the visit from Pet Sitters – awesome! Didn’t know they had good placid behaviour in them :)
— Courtney Clyne
I was very happy with the service and will use you again. Thank you, good to know pets all happy and cared for when we are away.
— Karen Anker
We arrived back to find Spank bright eyed, bushy tailed and looking for his next meal as usual. Thanks for looking after him so well, the amusing text we received while we were away and your contact with Julie to make sure she was back here herself. We’ll definitely recommend your services to our pet owning friends and wouldn’t hesitate to use you again.
— Gratefully, Carol, Andy and Spank
Wendy & her team are simply amazing. We have used their services to look after our cats while we were on holidays several times and have always been super-impressed. Our cats were kept happy and loved, and using Pet Sitters meant we didn’t have to feel guilty about imposing on friends, since looking after someone’s pets is no small job. We always received regular texts about how the cats were doing, which is a wonderful touch. On one occassion, when our return home got delayed due to bad weather, Wendy even extended the pet sitting period and short notice so we didn’t have to worry. She’s personable, reliable and fantastic at her job, and our cats adore her! Can’t recommend Pet Sitters enough!
— Sarah & Suze plus Caspian & Severus (and newist kitten addition, Flash)
Absolutely brillaint – our cats were so happy and relaxed when we got home, it was as if we had never been away. We have previously used a cattery but this was a lot easier and less stressful on all of us, plus it worked out more economical.
— Kate Harper
Service was fantastic, over and above what was expected. Very professional service tailored to our pets requirements, friendly and kept us informed. Highly recommend.
— Jill Schrider
Absolutely fantastic, I would never use a kennel when I see how happy and well cared for my dog is when I get home. I think she misses her time with all the other dogs more than she misses me.
— Alexis Shead
really liked that you updated me about how my pet was doing and thanks so much for watering the vegie patch and bringing in the post. Your service meant I could relax and enjoy my break knowing the cat/house were in safe hands. Thank you Wendy.
— Michelle Crutchley
Everything appeared to be very organised and easily managed. Plenty of information and reassurance that my dog was going to be looked after well.
— Barbara Tanner
Very happy with the care you gave our girls while we were away. The cats were happy to see us home, but we could tell they had been well looked after. We’ll definitely be booking again next month!
— Jo Lockton
A very good service. It was good piece of mind receiving the text. On arriving home it was so welcoming having the light on, mail on the bench, a really lovely note and very happy pets. We will definitely use Pet Sitters again.
— Mark & Vicky Gledhill
I found Pet Sitters (Foster Families) to be a fabulous service. They helped me out at very short notice enabling me to go on holiday with my family, knowing our little dogs were happy, safe and well looked after. I would happily recommend Pet Sitters and will definatley use them again.
— Thank you, Sharon Dejong
Would definitely use Pet Sitters (Foster Families) again, prefer it to kennels and sometimes the time frame is too long for friends to care for your pet.
— Nicky Everton
Very happy with the care Milly has received. Thank you Wendy
— Jane Wickham
We were very impressed. Thank you for responding so quickly and for extending the days. Much appreciated.
— Don Young
Pet Sitters are good value for money!
— Lutz Gerwin
Recently when we went overseas, Wendy organised a foster home for our Dachshund (Peaches). Well, she had such a good time. She was exercised regularly and well loved. We think she wanted to stay with her foster parent’s full time! Thank you Wendy, great service – can thoroughly recommend.
— Regards, Peta & Tom Wright
I think the beach walks are great for socializing dogs & helping them become less anxious – good fun too.
— Elizabeth Dooley
We were very happy with our Pet Sitter service and our dogs Daisy & Mac, & cat Taz were more settled on our return than when they go to the kennels/cattery. We felt it was a very professional service.
— Linda Williams
We were able to go away feeling confident about Wendy looking after our dog and cat and when the texts and photos came, we knew we would never use a kennel or cattery again. What a great service with genuine animal lovers looking after our fur children

I just wanted to say a massive thank you to the ladies that looked after Blackie and my daughters gold fish! I was blown away at how friendly, efficient and professional your staff and systems are.

I loved the updates on how Blackie was doing - especially since he is an elderly cat. So very appreciated. I came home to mail neatly stacked, even the cat trays, food and dirt boxes were tidy and clean. A wee toy left for Blackie and a note and message to check we were home. You were even happy to put my water timers on for my garden.

Excellent, professional, caring service at a very reasonable price!

Thank you, Sacha Cumming
