Two Wheaten Terriers, (Mother & Daughter, Roxie & Annie)
"...This is the first time Jane has looked after our 2 dogs and already we have booked her 3 more times this year!! Think this speak volumes. Jane is an excellent and prompt communicator in all aspects. During her stay I received messages as well as awesome photos of very happy dogs. Her attention to the care and needs of my dogs are exemplary and there was no doubt that Roxy and Annie jumped for joy when she returned after her recent stay to collect a forgotten item. I would never hesitate to highly recommend Jane to be the most trustworthy, reliable, responsible, caring, considerate and outstanding house-sitter you could ask for. I am very grateful to have met the lovely Jane on THS and cannot thank her enough to have treated my home and my fur kids like her own...."

"...Jane has just house-sat recently....I can only describe her like my second mum or my bestie!
From confirming our house-sit late last year to us going on holiday, Jane has been over and beyond amazing.
A long distance pre-visit, to finishing off after we left with our last minute chores, to totally indulging our two cats and one Jack Russell all day long, and us arriving home to a home cooked devine vegetable lasagna and lemon yogurt cake!! She kept in constant contact with us while we were on a ship in the ocean....5 stars plus plus!!..."

And the house was better than I left it and oh my goodness we couldn't believe u mowed the lawns. We hv never been looked after like this before...EVER. We certainly didn't expect you to do lawns but what a fabulous surprise. We r very grateful. Come back!! Now!! Mia is a picture of happiness and she says come back too. Thank you so so much....."

"...Thank you so much Jane for looking after my pets [fur babies] for three months while i was away from my home.
I was able to thoroughly enjoy my time away, knowing I had left them and my home in capable hands.
Thank you for the updates and photos you sent me, they were great to receive, it was so thoughtful of you to do this.
On my return Jane had left my home spotless and went out of her way to ensure i had everything i needed.
My fur babies were healthy and happy.
Jane proved her reliability beyond a doubt and I would not hesitate to recommend her for other house sits.
A huge thanks Jane...''.
Two lively Border Collies (Chloe and Posie) and 1 Cat (Gretel) –
"....I would totally recommend Jane as a Housesitter.
She was amazing, we were a little nervous about having a complete stranger sit for us, we have had bad experiences with people we know let alone leaving our house and animals to a stranger. Jane communicated with us well, as my husband was fretting about whether she would turn up I received a txt with a photo of her greeting our dogs.
Jane respected our house, food and privacy. She treated our animals like her own, I think they missed her when she left, the dogs especially.
We returned to a amazingly clean house, tidy lawns AND she even weeded our garden, one that we had neglected because it was in our too hard basket. Not only that she understood that we would be tired after our trip and cooked a meal for us on our return.
I would have Jane house sit for us anytime, I can't fault her in anyway. My husband who was worried reflected that we could have been away longer..."

"...It is our absolute pleasure to write a letter of reference for Jane Buckley.
We would like to highly recommend Jane as a house and pet sitter.
We were extremely fortunate to recently have Jane sit for us. Jane was extremely committed and arrived a day before we left for our holiday. Jane traveled a long distance to be there for us.It was fantastic for us to meet and spend time with Jane. She is a lovely warm and friendly person.
Jane is a genuine pet lover and cared for our old dog like he was her own. She ensured that his every need was met. She was extremely caring and patient with him. We truely appreciated the wonderful communication from Jane each day, which was so very kind and reassuring.
Jane also took extremely respectful care of our home. Upon our return we were so very impressed with the time and care she had provided in leaving our home immaculate. She had gone out of her way to ensure everything was perfect. There were many thoughtful signs of her kindness and generosity.
We could not have wished for a more perfect person to have home and pet sat for us.
We wish Jane all the very best for her future sits and for the year ahead.
We would love for her to return at any point in the near future not only as a sitter but as a friend and guest.
Jane has so very much to offer and we could not recommend her more highly..."
With much appreciation
Leanne and Andrew Stove
