Testimonials & Feedback

9th July, 2012

Dear Raelene, 

Thank you so much for looking after Pippa & Gee while we were away.  To have you stay in the house with them for the 10 days we were away; it was so re-assuring knowing that they were all so well looked after in their own home.

Your thoughtfulness in getting provisions in for us on our return was an unexpected gesture of kindness which I appreciated very much.

I'm sorry that you experienced a power cut during your time here but thank you for dealing with it so efficiently, informing the authorities and security company. It's so refreshing to meet someone with lot's of common sense!

I have no hesitation in recommending your services and shall be thanking my vet for introducing us.

With very best wishes

To Whom It May Concern:

Country Companions Pet Sitting provided dog sitting and walking services in February and March of 2012 for Harvey, my large & very energetic, 3 yr old Labrador Retriever.  

Raelene proved to be capable and responsible as well as a good communicator & I had no issues with the services she provided.  She was always on time and did a great job keeping me informed of how Harvey was feeling and behaving.

I can recommend to anyone that is looking for a pet sitting/walking service to rely on Country Companions Pet Sitting for these services.  I was fully satisfied and felt confident that my dog was in the best hands.

Hi Raelene,

Firstly I would like to thank you for your continued reliable service, not only have you given myself peace of mind but I am also benefiting from seeing a change in Molly. She is a lot happier and settled and she enjoys her time with you so once again I give a massive thank you from myself and Molly.

I would also like to take this time to let you know that I would have no hesitation in recommending your company; I have found you to be trustworthy, punctual and reliable and most of all caring - treating Molly as if she were your own which speaks volumes.

Kind regards,

Simon, Hereford

To Whom It May Concern,

My husband and I contacted Country Companions Pet Sitting early in September as we had been let down by our previous housesitter.

Although it was short notice, Raelene instantly came to our rescue! We needed help during the daytime hours as our daughter was staying overnight while we were away for 10 days.

Raelene was a godsend! We have 4 cats and 3 dogs, all rather high maintenance in one way or another. She coped brilliantly and they loved her!

We will certainly use Country Companions Pet Sitting again and have no hesitation in recommending them most highly.

Yours sincerely,

Sharon, Tarrington

To Whom It May Concern:

It is my pleasure to provide a reference for Raelene Calderhead of Country Companions Pet Siitting.

We began using Raelene’s services several months ago to care for our 2yr old Staffordshire Terrier/Lurcher cross called Cleo. We acquired Cleo from the Hereford & Worcester Rescue Shelter earlier in the year, however as a result of her past she suffers from separation anxiety and currently cannot be left on her own.

In the time that she has worked for us, we have found Raelene to be extremely reliable and trustworthy.  She is also very accommodating at short notice due to, changes in our schedule and always returned our calls promptly.

I feel she genuinely cares about animals and is truly concerned about their well-being.  Cleo and I would highly recommend her as a pet sitter.

I have known Raelene for the past 5 1/2 years. She is completely reliable and trustworthy but most importantly she loves animals. She is kind and thoughtful as she often buys Sid, our Jack Russel terrier his favourite chews whenever I forget! 

Raelene has stayed at our home many times for us to go on holiday and weekends away. She not only looks after Sid but also our hens and fish. When we arrive back Sid is always very relaxed, as if we havent even been away and our home is always clean and tidy.

I cannot recommend her enough, to the point I don't want anyone to read this as we want to keep her all to ourselves!

Raelene has been cat sitting for our cat for over a year now. In that time she has proved to be reliable and completely trustworthy. She has occasionally had to deal with the odd extra task such as disposing of dead birds and mice, with which she has done so very capably and without fuss!

We will miss her and her services very much when she moves to Dorset.
