Customer Testimonials

Sula, our chocolate Labrador, spent nine nights with Jackie at the end of August, leaving us free to enjoy a worry-free holiday in Brittany. She seemed to have had a good time and I would be happy to use Jackie again, and to recommend her to others.

We were really pleased to find the Dog Hitch. Dilly our black Lab likes his home comforts and we were looking for Dilly to stay at someone's home for the odd day, overnighter and when we go away on holiday. He likes to stay at his Grannies but she lives in Hampshire so it's not always convenient to drop and collect him. The Dog Hitch is only a few miles from home and has given Dilly a 'home from home'. He is always eager to get in through the door at the start of his stay and most importantly, when we collect him he looks happy and relaxed. We would thoroughly recommend the Dog Hitch. Mikaela & Dilly

Molly, my Springer Spaniel, has been going to The Dog Hitch for several years now, and is very happy when she is staying there. As I work part-time, my dog spends about three days each week with her other doggy friends at this "home from home. Usually I drop Molly in on my way to work early morning, and then collect her in the late afternoon/evening. Occasionally, if I am away overnight, then the dog will stay with Jackie for a "sleep-over". This facility has removed the stress for both me & Molly of having to leave her at my home alone. I have no hesitation in recommending The Dog Hitch to other dog owners who want their dogs looked after in a warm friendly family home. Mike & Molly

Prior to finding Jackie at The Dog Hitch, going on holiday always caused us worry about our dog, Dilly. She is a much loved and pampered Doberman who used to fret when we left her and would be out of condition and really fed up and miserable by the time we collected her. I'm delighted to say that since we discovered The Dog Hitch, Dilly bounces in wagging her tail and soon makes herself at home, when we collect her she looks bright and has clearly been well looked after. We are relieved that we can go away knowing that Dilly is happy. Jane & Dilly

I have been using the Dog Hitch now for nearly 5 years & I would highly recommend it!!! My dog Roxy is a Lhasa Apso & is more human than dog. Leaving her at holiday times would be really stressful but now I know that she is happy at the Dog Hitch, it is very comforting & makes our trips away more enjoyable! Katie & Roxy

The Dog Hitch is an absolute godsend when it comes to taking care of Alfie, our adorable and very spoilt Miniature Schnauzer. Whether it be for a week's holiday, a long weekend or the days when I can't walk him, I feel really happy knowing that Alfie is looked after just as if he's in his own home, gets lovely long walks and lots of attention. Its so obvious that he loves going to Jackie's and that peace of mind is invaluable. Angie, Richard & Alfie

My Weimaraner, Stormy had a sleepover with Jackie and as an over protective owner, I could not have asked for more! Jackie was very patient and caring with Stormy who can be nervous when I leave her. By the time I picked her up in the morning, Stormy was treating the place like it was her own and had obviously had a comfortable night. For anyone who requires a personalised dog care service, Jackie has got to be your first port of call. Kate & Stormy

I have been using the Dog Hitch home boarding service since 2007 since a friend of mine was no longer able to look after my Cavalier King Charles Spaniel while we were away on holiday. I was a little nervous at first trying to find someone to care for our very spoilt little girl, however I came across Dog Hitch via the internet and decided to give them a call. I took Polly round and met Jackie the lady who runs Dog Hitch. She was very friendly and the house was very homely and clean. Polly had a good sniff round and then immediately settled down to have a sleep on the carpet, which I knew was a good sign. Since then whenever we travel in either this country or abroad I know that I never need to worry about leaving Polly at Dog Hitch as I know she is well cared for and is very happy and content during her visit. Margaret & Polly

Jackie provides a truly exceptional service. We have a very nervous Yorkshire terrier who rarely warms to new people - Jackie has not only cared for our dog as if i t were her own, she has also gently introduced her to other dogs and social situations which has helped us greatly when going out for walks etc. As soon as I open the car door, Daisy is now excited to run to Jackie's front door and bolt straight into the house for a day of fun! I can work happily knowing that our little dog is in such capable hands. I do not hesitate to recommend Jackie to anybody requiring a dog sitting service. She is a true credit to the profession and we are lucky to have her on our doorstep!! We are customers for life. Chris, Leeanne & Daisy

My dog Stanley has been going 2 afternoons a week for over a year now and is always eager to get to the door step. He's a bit unsociable and I like the fact that Jackie doesn't push him and allows him to just be. He gets a good walk and is always happy when I collect him. I will always recommend Jackie if asked about dog minding. Louise & Stanley
