WKD House & Pet Sitting Reviews


We couldn’t be happier with WKD House & Pet Sitting

"Kate was compassionate, informative and cared for our pets so thoughtfully.

We have a very sensitive cat who was quite taken by her, so she clearly has the special touch.

Will definitely be using WKD House & Pet Sitting's services again very soon, as we couldn’t ask for more.

L.S. - Beautiful cat and adorable Spaniel

Fern and Luna

I can’t rate WKD House & Pet Sitting highly enough

"Kate is warm, thoughtful, professional and reliable.

She spent a great deal of time meeting us prior to our booking, getting to know us and our two Labradors, who took to her immediately.

Regular updates and photos whilst we were away were so reassuring, and she even had a cuppa with our neighbour who was intrigued by her awesome campervan!

WKD House & Pet Sitting will be our go-to every time we need someone to house sit, as we have complete confidence in her regarding our dogs' care and the security of the house.

A proper holiday with the family, not worrying about the boys who were happy at home being spoilt rotten. Huge thanks Kate. A blessing to have found you!"

C.W. - Two wonderful black Labs

Fully recommend her services!

"Kate from WKD House & Pet Sitting has looked after our house and miniature Schnauzer, a few times when we've gone away.

I always feel completely at ease with Kate being in our home, as she shares regular updates and pictures.

Our doggo loves Kate looking after her, as she keeps her company through the whole day, and takes her for long walks, too.

Kate is also very respectful of the house and keeps things tidy and organised, fully recommend her services! Thanks again Kate, see you next holidays!"

A.S. - Lovely Miniature Schnauzer

WKD House & Pet Sitting is the best

"I trusted her with my dog and fortunately she’s horsey, too so she was able to look after my horse at the same time.

With regular updates and photos, I knew my precious babies were fine in her care, I can’t recommend her highly enough!

And to add to that, she’s just a lovely person and you warm to her straight away. Kate is ‘Simply the best’ as Tina Turner would say!"

N.M. - Very very cute Jack Russells

100% recommend WKD House & Pet Sitting

"I've known Kate in a professional capacity for over a decade or two now, and cannot emphasise how consistently reliable and professional she is.

An animal lover through and through, I will not hesitate to use Kate's reliable house and pet sitting services when it comes to my own pets in the future, and have already recommended her services to close friends and colleagues.

If you're looking for someone who is trustworthy and reliable, to love and look after your fur babies in your absence, Kate is your superstar pet sitter!"

A.R. - Cute small floof


Definitely booking WKD House & Pet Sitting again!

Kate and I hit it off straight away. What’s not to like about this genuine, kind-hearted, bubbly lady?!

When I went on holiday, I trusted Kate from WKD House & Pet Sitting with my precious dog, and I left knowing my flat and my dog were in the best of hands.

Anyone who knows me, knows I wouldn’t have left my dog with many people! What worked well for me was Kate is also a competent horsewoman so I was able to have both my animals looked after by the same person.

Not only did this make life easier, but Kate sent me regular updates/pictures to let me know both animals were ok, she respected how needy I am when it comes to my animals and was happy to keep me updated.

Kate is a true animal lover and certainly not someone who will just go through the process of looking after your pets – they’ll get cuddles (if they want them) and I believe animals warm to Kate as much as people do.

I’ll definitely be booking Kate again, but I think I’ll need to book well in advance as I reckon she’ll be one of the busiest pet sitters around!"

N.M. - Absolutely lovely Jack Russells

Kate has been simply amazing

"Kate from WKD House & Pet Sitting recently started dog sitting our three dogs at our home. We are very nervous about leaving our dogs with anyone as we treat them like our children.

In terms of reassuring us, the proof was in the pudding with the delivery; she's so natural with the dogs and everything went perfectly.

We actually managed to relax whilst we were away. We have already rebooked Kate for an upcoming holiday!"

D.P. - Three very cute pups

Wow, putting this blog post together and reading, and re-reading these lovely words is so humbling. It's such a pleasure to work with you all so thank you, too! Hope to see you and your lovely floofs again very very soon.
