What our customers say about us

If animals could talk I'd be able to fill this page with their own comments. But sadly I'm not Dr Dolittle, so I have to rely on feedback from satisfied owners. The best form of advertising for any small business like Sit 'n' Stay is recommendation, so if you've liked the service you and your pet has received, whether boarding, home visits or dog/cat grooming do please email me or use the 'contact us' for on this site and I'll add your comments here. Thanks.


The No.1 destination for doggy holidays! …


"Thanks so much for having Teddie for us for 3 nights whilst we got married. It was so nice to not have to worry about him knowing he was in good hands. He seemed very happy with you and will defo use you again if we ever go away. Thanks again"

Amy B (June 2021)


"I cannot recommend Sue at Sit 'n' Stay enough, she treats everyone's pets as if they are her own and her love of animals really shows. I have used Sit 'n' Stay for both boarding, and dog walking for a few years before Sue moved out of the area. My dog loves Sue, and looked forward to her visits everyday. A very professional and lovely service! Thank you for everything, and we still keep in touch even now!"

Laura M (September 2020)


"I would highly recommend Sue as a dog walker and sitter. Sue walked our dog from when he was a puppy up until to when she relocated which thankfully coincided with me retiring so I didn’t have to look for a new dog walker! Wilbur was always excited to see her and Sue was very caring to our dog. She got to know him very well and accommodated his funny little ways!! She always made sure he had water and turned on the lights if it was getting dark before leaving him after his walk. We still use Sue for boarding and wouldn’t leave him with anyone else!."

Michele K (September 2020)


"Sue looked after our Golden Labrador Goldie at very short notice. She could not have been more helpful in accommodating our last minute request and Goldie had a mini holiday with Sue’s 2 dogs. During Goldie’s stay Sue was thoughtful in sending us photos and messages to let us know that Goldie was happy and enjoying herself. Good dog sitters, like baby sitters, are not easy to find and we would recommend Sit-n-Stay to any dog owner. Complete peace of mind."

Carl & Jadwiga C (July 2020)


"Sue has been looking after our dog for a week while we went on holiday. He was really well looked after, could not fault the love and care given to him, would highly recommend. Thank you Sue."

Hazel C (January 2020)


"Sue has been great sat with our two Springer Spaniels when I have to go to meetings. The pups love her and she gives me updates and pics so I know all is well. She loves them and they know it. Lucky pups having Sue to look after them."

Liz W (January 2020)


"Sue looked after our dog Ralph for one week while we were on holiday. We have never left him with anyone before but Sue was lovely and kept in contact all the time with updates and photos. He enjoyed his holiday! Thank you.

Meg A (January 2020)


"Sue is friendly and professional. She looked after our cat and gave regular updates. Would absolutely recommend."

Emma P (December 2019)


"I found Sue's details on the internet and made contact with her by phone. 
Sue responded very promptly and came to meet me and my dog.
My dog is a 10 year old terrier with one eye, due to a hereditary eye condition. 
Sue has been absolutely wonderful giving Tom his eye drop each day at our house and walking him whilst we were away on holiday. Her communication both with me and our son who was commuting to University daily from home has been excellent. I cannot recommend Sue enough and will definitely be in touch again when we go away."

Sue S (November 2019)


"We were recommended Sue's pet minding services for our 15 month Labrador Iggy to stay while we were away for a week. We popped over and introduced Iggy to Sue's 2 lovely, patient and tolerant dogs and they all got on well. During the stay, Sue kept us up to date on how Iggy was settling in and what he was getting up to. Our return was delayed by quite a few hours due to flights and motorway traffic, Sue was very understanding and flexible, which we really appreciated, and Iggy seemed to enjoy himself and met new friends.

We will be looking to book him in the next time we have to go away and would not hesitate to recommend Sue's pet services."

Huw P (November 2019)


"We have known Sue and her Sit 'n' Stay Petminding Service for well over ten years.
From simply letting our dogs out in the garden at lunchtime, to dog walking, to having our dogs board with her.

Throughout this whole time and different services, we have found Sue to be trustworthy, professional, punctual, friendly and, most importantly, always putting the welfare of our dogs as her priority.
I have previously and would have no hesitation in recommending Sue and her pet minding service over and above anyone else."

Tony S (September 2019)


"I have a miniature daschund and Sue has been helping with walks whilst I have been at work. We are very happy with the care Sue provides and feel Sandy is in good hands. 
Sandy is always happy to see Sue and is well looked after. Sue is very reliable, friendly, approachable and always happy to help. Sandy also stayed with Sue whilst we were on holiday. Again, excellent care, and great communication was provided. 
Sue is very experienced, enthusiastic and her passion for animals is evident and wonderful to see. We highly recommend Sue and Sit 'n' Stay services."

Louise B (August 2019)


"A fantastic service from Sue at Sit 'n' Stay! Couldn't wish for a better person to look after our dog and cat, so would highly recommend. Sue cares for the animals as if they were her own, and goes the extra mile to make sure they are well looked after. Not only a fab pet caretaker but a lovely, genuine person too! Thank you, Sue!"

Laura and Toby (the dog) (August 2019)



"I have no hesitation in recommending Sue to look after your beloved pet. Ever since we started to use Sue's pet care services our little old Jack Russell - Poppy - sees her place as "home from home". Sue is friendly, caring and reliable and we are pleased we found her."

Chris & Lorraine B (July 2019) 


"I wanted to send you a big thank you for looking after Freddie for the past two weeks. It was lovely receiving the photos of him which clearly showed him well and truly settled with you. He seemed so comfortable and didn't seem to want to come home. Many thanks."

Jackie (July 2019)


"Hi Sue. Thank you so much for having Wilbur again this weekend. It's so lovely to know that he is safe and well looked after while we are away. He's always happy to see you and has a great time! Thanks again!

Michele (July 2019)


"Woody had a lovely stay with Sue and it was great to get some piccies to see how he was getting on. It is lovely to find someone we feel happy to leave our little doggy with. Would highly recommend."

Vicki (October 2018)

"Sue is amazing! Our dog Bella is an old girl and was so well looked after,. We were let down at the last minute and Sue couldn't do enough to help us out. We had regular updates and photos for the length of our holiday. Bella had a bit of a turn while we were away and Sue cared for Bella as if she was one of her own, I really can't thank her enough for what she did for us. Once again Thank you Sue."

Darren (August 2018)

"Sue has been walking and grooming my two dogs for over 10 years. She has been impeccably reliable the whole time and the dogs are always happy to see her. Sue spends a fair chunk of her spare time helping dog charities, so you know she's a true dog lover."

Dan, Tigs & Meg (August 2018)


"Sue is very reliable and flexible which I find very useful. Sue has a caring nature and cares about the welfare of your dog, mine is older and I appreciate this. Sue provides the little touches that you don't often see in a dog walker. Thank you Sue."

Lisa, and Charlie the dog (July 2018)

"I would like to thank sue for looking after Freddie my two year old Lhasa when I went on hols for two weeks. Due to his medical conditions I made the decision for him to be home boarded with Sue. Nothing was too much trouble and she sent me photos with regular updates. He had a lovely time whilst there and I don't think he really wanted to come home and leave his new friends! I wouldn't hesitate to leave him with Sue again."

Jacquie, and Freddie the dog (July 2018)


"My name is Heidi l am a four year old German shepherd. I stay with Sue at Sit 'n' Stay three times a year when my mum and dad go away. I really look forward to my holidays with Sue and her two lovely dogs Harry and Bonny. Harry is my favourite and I miss him so much when my mum and dad, who love me to bits, arrive to take me home and my holiday is over. Sue makes me feel like I am part of the family  she looks after me so well giving me all the TLC I get from my mum and dad at home. I am really looking forward to my next holiday with Sue, Harry and Bonny." 

A message from our beautiful dog Heidi. Kay and Alan (October 2015)


"We never fancied putting Otto in noisy kennels, and at Sit 'n' Stay he's cared for in a homely family setting. When we picked him up he was his usual happy self. If anything, he seemed sad to be leaving!"

M&R (Autumn 2014)



"My Labrador Charlie stayed many times in six years. Sadly, he's passed away but was always happy to stay with Sue and be treated as part of the family. I will certainly ask her to look after any future dogs."

Mrs W (July 2014)



"I've placed Pip (our Yorkshire Terrier) in Sue's care for the past 7 years. Sometimes she sends us photos of Pip while we're away. When we collect him he's always in good condition, well fed and happy."

Mrs R.R (August 2014)



"Sue's love of dogs is obvious and she is fantastic with our 11 year old Labrador who she's known for 10 years. Sue is reliable and trustworthy and our dog comes home relaxed and smelling good!"

Anne M (January 2015)

"Sue has been grooming our spaniel, Mali, for almost 7 years and often has her to stay when we go on holiday. Sue looks after Mali so well and it's such a relief to know that Mali is enjoying her holiday at Sue's whilst we are away."

 Alison M (November 2015)

"Sit-n-stay, can't recommend Sue highly enough. She is dependable, loves the pets in her care, and even saved my kitchen floor when I had a water leak. I wouldn't use anyone else to look after my dog and cats."

Susan A (December 2015)

"Sue is amazing with my two young Dachshunds - and they love her equally! Very kind and always thinks of the pups, going far over and above … Great to know they are in good hands when I'm at work … Highly recommend!"

Laura A (December 2015)

"Sit 'n' Stay have been looking after my cats for a number of years. I recommend Sue wholeheartedly. My cats are so much happier in their own environment and Sue is caring and trustworthy with them. She was willing to give injections to a previous elderly cat. The cats always look well when we come home and we take a number of holidays a year. Sue has also watered my garden and kept an eye on an elderly neighbour. She makes holidays when you have pets far less stressful!"

G & N (February 2016)

"Sue has regularly looked after our cat Jiffy and I can’t recommend her highly enough. She’s very reliable which means we have complete peace of mind whilst we’re away and she often texts with updates which is always reassuring. Now that we’ve found Sue we don’t mind leaving Jiffy at home knowing he’s being well cared for."

Sara D (February 2016)

"Sue at Sit 'n' Stay regularly walks our dog, she is called Mitzy and is a Westie. This then made the decision for Mitzy to board with Sue a lot easier, rather than sending her to kennels. Mitzy recently spent just over two weeks with Sue and was well cared for and looked after and enjoyed being in the company of Sue's own dogs, so I highly recommend these services. We would be lost without you Sue. Thank you."

Claire B (August 2016)


Sue says: "Claire, thank you so much for the card, flowers and wine. Such a lovely and unexpected gesture! So pleased that Mitzy enjoyed her stay with us and that you were happy with the care she received."

Not exactly pet related, but a really nice comment to receive, and so glad I was able to help:
"I just want to thank Sue Brydon for her honesty in handing in my lost handbag which I left in a trolley in an Asda car park. She has definitely restored my faith in human nature and if her business is run on the same principal it must be that she is a perfect person to leave your pet in her possession. Best of luck in your business  - you deserve it.  Many thanks."
