About Sigi
Merry Puppins Dog Minding is all about bringing your fur-baby in and caring for them as one of the family.

To help with bonding, I do a daily brush & tick check incorporating some relaxing massage. Also, I recommend bringing a favourite comfort toy and an item of bedding to help your fur-baby feel secure during their stay. I do ask that you supply clear instructions on any dietary restrictions, and supply all food.

I have cared for many dogs of various breeds, sizes and temperaments, with a lot being from rescue type situations, which have needed special considerations and extra loving attention. Many have had trouble with anxiety issues, and as I am also a Remedial Therapist, I have seen excellent results through utilising essential oils and canine massage.

Even when not from a rescue background, most pets have their own set of funny little idiosyncrasies, and being in a new place can cause them anxiety; my experience with rescued pets has given me a lot of insight, and has equipped me to handle all situations with gentle love and understanding.

All of my past "Foster Fur-babies" have a special place in my heart and I enjoy staying in touch with their owners.

Our 11mth old puppy Milo was in the best hands possible while we were away. It was our first time using a puppy sitter and Sigi gave us great confidence from the speedy response to our email, the friendly phone call and first visit. Add that to the regular texts/emails and photos throughout the trip and the fact our puppy didn't want to leave - what can we say, we strongly recommend Sigi and Merry Puppins Dog Minding!

Thanks for everything!!!! Honey seem to have had a great holiday :) Would not hesitate in using Sigi at any time to look after our dog We had a fantastic experience booking Sigi through Mad Paws. She was always quick to respond to our requests, and she sent us photos and updates of Honey when we were away. Knowing how well Honey was treated, really allowed us to sit back on our holiday and truly relax and enjoy the moment. Honey is a small dog with a big personality and Sigi did a great job and showering my Honey with so much love. I could tell how satisfied Honey was because when we got back she wasn't the least bit restless.. Highly recommended!!!
