Loraine was fantastic. Her property offered plenty of room for our whippet to run and enjoy the outdoors as well as time inside relaxing. We really appreciated the daily updates from Loraine and would certainly recommend her to others.

Loraine was a brilliant and caring sitter for our dog Darcie. She had such a wonderful time playing.on the farm and swimming in the dam, and not to mention the awaking food options.

Loraine was absolutely amazing. She is a prompt communicator who took excellent care of Pepper while we were away, often sending us updates and pictures daily. Pepper enjoyed her time so much!
