“To interested House and Pet Owners
We were most fortunate to have been able to have Ernst and An care for our 2 Welshspringerspaniels and our home when we were on a recent months vacation overseas. We would highly recommend them to do house and pet sits. They take on their role as a professional one.
We had first personal contact with Ernst by phone during the phone interview. Immediately I felt comfortable with him, he appeared honest, organised, warm, caring and very interested about our dogs and their quirks. I felt so confident with our interview and we made a decision that day to ask them to sit for us. Ernst and An made the effort to come to our home and meet us 6 months prior to the sit. We sat and had morning tea and I felt like I had known them forever. One of my dogs is excessively timid and at the end of meet she was approaching them. I immediately could see that they were able to read dog temperament and respond positively to it. From the first meet and greet Ernst and An made regular contact prior to the vacation and we exchanged where and what we were up to and plans for the coming sit. One of our dogs developed epilepsy and they made me feel confident they would be able to manage this. This made us feel secure about leaving our dogs and homes with them. At Easter time we met them for lunch to finalise plans. We had developed a friendship.
Ernst and An kindly stayed over the night before we left. This gave us time to hand over our dogs, discuss a seizure plan, and go through routines. The moment we left I felt absolutely confident that our dogs were left in the very best of care. During our vacation Ernst and An kept in contact with us via emails and messenger.We received the most beautiful photos of our dogs and their adventures during walks. Not once on our journey did I worry about them. Ernst and An waited up for our night return. An had made us a beautiful meal and left us some groceries so we could make breakfast. Our dogs were so settled and happy, and actually showed a preference for getting cuddles and pats from them over us! Our home was left spotlessly clean.
