Jenni and the team at The Animal Business were already my usual dog sitter for weekends away. From the first moment we took Logan to her I could tell that she was perfect; incredibly loving to the animals, but not willing to put up with any bad behaviour. My wife and I were also very happy that the dogs were allowed to roam in their own area, rather than be confined to pens like in some other sitters. Jenni helped in a way that no other sitter we could find would when I found I was relocating to Australia. Due to strict immigration laws, Logan would need to wait 6 months from his initial passing of a rabies vaccination before he would be allowed to join us in Australia. Rather embarrassingly, I had to ask if she would willingly put up with Logan for 6 months, help out with taking him for injections, and actually transfer him to the airport- all of which was met with a resounding “yes of course!”. During his long exile, we received photos and video clips and Jenni kept us regularly up to date with emails of how things were going. I couldn’t recommend her and the team enough; absolute dog lovers who happily went above and beyond what we could have hoped to ensure we had an easy transition abroad, and that Logan was really well looked after.
Jenni and the Animal Business team have been looking after my pride and joy (Missy the 3 year old Airedale) since she was 9 weeks old.
They have become part of her extended family. Nothing is ever too much trouble for Jenni and I have hardly ever known her not to accommodate my requests, last minute emergencies or changes of plan.
Missy has grown into a well behaved (all be it mischievous) dog with the help of Jenni’s firm approach and the socialisation and stimulation that ‘doggy day care’ offers. Jenni has coped without complaint with Missy’s antics (opening doors and gates and spilling water everywhere!) and it is a testiment to the good time she has when she returns home and is spark out before long in front of the TV.
Chantelle and the other walkers have also provided an excellent service and I have felt total trust in them visiting my home.
Jenni dedicates so much of herself to caring for dogs and has been 100 % reliable. Her business and approach provide flexibility and added value that I am not confident I would find elsewhere.
Thanks for all your help Jenni – not sure how I would cope without you.

Jenni and the team at The Animal Business have looked after (and put up with!) our border terrier Honey Hunter for five years since she was a puppy.
Every time we drop Honey off we leave safe in the knowledge that she’s in experienced and fun hands! Jenni knows who Honey’s dog friends are, and once she’s back home she usually has a good old sulk to have been dragged away from them all! Although The Animal Business has many ‘regulars’ we’re always made to feel like Honey is special – her tail wagging and excited yelps as soon as we pull up to Jenni’s house is true testimony to her care.
Thanks The Animal Business – don’t know what we (and Honey) would do without you!

Our golden retriever, Bertie, has been going to doggy daycare for just over a year. We think it’s a fantastic place and it has helped us enormously when we are at work or on holiday. We know Bertie is having the best care that he could. After a session at daycare Bertie returns home a very happy, if slightly tired dog. He absolutely adores Jenni and loves to socialise with the other dogs…he is often very reluctant to leave come home time. I can’t praise Jenni and The Animal Business enough for all their hard work.

My 1 yr old dog Molly has been going to Jenni on a regular basis for the past year. I was a little apprehensive at first as this was my first dog and I wasn’t sure about leaving her with a stranger. I can honestly say it was the best decision I have made! Not only do I know that Molly has a great time whilst she is with Jenni, I also know she is safe, cared for and not allowed to get away with her sometimes naughty antics! I wouldn’t take my dog anywhere else! X

The Animal Business have been walking my dogs for over 10 years, I totally trust them both with walking and them coming into my home when I’m not around. Harley and Tess adore all the walkers and they adore them too!
I often get text messages or find notes when I get home to keep me posted on how they’re getting on.
I’m sure there will be times when I will need someone to take care of Harley and Tess for a day or two and I wouldn’t hesitate in asking The Animal Business to do just that!

The Animal Business have been walking our dog Larry for just under a year now 3 times a week. In this time we have had nothing but a professional, courteous and above all friendly service. They have always helped us out at short notice and has followed any instructions given if needed.
Larry has taken a real shine to Chantelle and looks forward to his extra walks with her and we are pretty sure he misses her when my wife and I are on holiday and she isn’t required!
From Mike with Larry
Jenni has been looking after our 3 year old cocker spaniel, Spock, on an ad hoc basis for the last 3 years. Spock adores her and as a “single” dog, he has benefitted hugely from socialising with other dogs. We would be completely stuck without Jenni’s support.

“We have found Jenni’s cat sitting service to be extremely reliable, efficient and reasonably priced. We used to send our cats to a cattery, but they are much happier being looked after at home. It really adds to a holiday to know that everything is being looked after so capably.”
