Dog Walking and Pet Care Testimonials
I would have given Desiree, the Holiday Mum, 10 stars if the option was available. Desiree is very passionate, caring and full of patience with our ‘M&Ms’ (Mika and Milo). Both are about 43 kgs large dogs and Desiree showed lots of confidence as she came to meet them for the first time. She has displayed a high level of experience in handling and interacting with large dogs. Milo, the male one, does not warm up to any strangers easily and can be very intimidating to anyone who walks into our home for the first time. Desiree was never deterred but worked patiently with Milo to gain his trust. We could take our holiday comfortably knowing that both M&Ms got to see their Holiday Mum every day and have their daily walks and feeds as usual at home. They would have been very miserable if they were sent to a dog boarding place because they are both of an anxious nature. Desiree has also been very flexible in working with us preceding our holiday to ensure M&Ms spent enough time to get to know her well, and she got to know their routine as well. They are really lucky to have Desiree around and be there for them, so did we so that we could enjoy our time away thoroughly. I will definitely get on to Desiree again as soon as we plan our next holiday!
Desireé cares for my boys as if they were her own – I am pretty sure they couldn’t be more loved, spoilt and fussed over. In fact, one of my boys has taken to spending time at her place, even when we are not away! I worry terribly about my guys while I am away, but I know they are in excellent hands. I love getting the photos and seeing that they are not missing me AT ALL. September 2019.
We highly recommend Desireé – she looks after our fur babies whilst we are on holidays as if they are her own! Our dog Theo adores her and we are so grateful Desireé can walk him daily and care for him, gives us such peace of mind when we can’t be there. Our bunnies love seeing her daily too.Desireé is kind, reliable, professional and nurturing. We also love receiving photographs and regular updates with how they are going whilst we are away. The perfect person and service provided when you can’t be there. April 2019.
Desireé has cared for our cat on a number of occasions, and we could not be happier with the service she provides. Desireé is meticulous about understanding the specific needs and routine of your pet. She truly loves animals, and this shows through in how contented our little furball is in the daily pics Desireé sends us. From our very first contact, engaging with Desireé has been easy and painless. If only every business was run the way she runs hers. Do yourself a favour and give Desireé a call – your four legged children will be eternally grateful! April 2019.
From our initial contact Desiree put me at ease about leaving my older dogs to go on a family holiday. I was impressed with her professionalism and genuine affection for Honey and Elvis but mostly for her thoughtfulness and care while we were away. She went beyond my expectations and I would recommend her to anyone especially those who are anxious about leaving their pets behind. December 2018.
I can highly recommend Holiday Mum Pet Care. Desiree is reliable, caring and the biggest advocates are our two Labradors. October 2018.
Great Mum to the girls, I am a bit concerned the dogs look forward to me packing the bags. September 2018.
While we were overseas, Desiree looked after our chickens brilliantly. She let them out in the morning, cleaned, fed, watered them, gave them treats and put them in the coop at night. She also sent us photos and regular updates. The “girls” are happy and laying well on our return. I recommend Desiree for her excellent service. Thank you so much. July 2018.
Desireé is fantastic! She adores our Beagle, Oscar and even Oscar’s ‘cousin’, the Golden Cocker Spaniel, Colby. Oscar gets very excited when Desireé takes him on long walks. She shows our doggies so much love and attention in making sure they have their water and giving them pats and cuddles. Desireé is the pet carer I would gladly recommend to anyone who needs their pets taken care of in their own environment. She loves all animals, from cats and dogs to fish and reptiles. June 2018.
What can I say about the “wonderful” Desiree. My beautiful Norwegian cat couldn’t handle boarding any more, as he is too old and it was stressing him out. I left Wedgie and Bosco in the care of Desiree for one month while we were away and both cats were so happy and contented being at home, they had lots of play time and cuddles. Desiree is the most caring person to be looking after our animals and I love the updates and photo’s we received while away. Thoroughly recommend. May 2018.
Every pet owner needs “a Desiree ” in their life. So trustworthy and reliable. My Sir Angus needs medication and Desiree is such a champion helping to do this. When she has been over to visit, my boy does cartwheels when I get home, he seems super happy. He just loves her. May 2018.
Thanks, Desiree. You did a lovely job looking after Dolly and Deena. April 2018.
Kaylee and Brodie loved having Desireé look after them while we were away. They had walks, playtime, cuddles and treats and were very happy little pups when we got home. In fact, after we got home, they missed Desireé so much they’d wait for her near the front door. I’d recommend Holiday Mum Pet Care for anyone needing their family cared for while away. March 2018.
Thank you again for your excellent care for Atilla while we were away. I will definitely be using you again and recommending you to all my friends and family. December 2017.
Lovely visit with Desireé today. She has a fantastic way with animals so if you need anything for your pets while you’re away give her a call. Her business is looking after your pets while you are at work or on holidays. She visits them at your home, walking them, feeding them and making them feel the love. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for this kind of service and so would Opie . November 2017.
Harley and Batman miss you already! Not being able to go for walks with my broken leg, I saw first-hand how well they responded to you and how amazing you were with them. I hope I don’t have to use you for the same reason, but next time we are away, you will be the first we call. Thank you from all of us. Great job. November 2017.
Our fur baby Bruce took to Desireé in an instant. He absolutely loved his walks and got lots of cuddles while we were away. Thank you so much for looking after our fur child. Highly recommend. October 2017.
We had to go interstate at short notice for a funeral. Desireé came to our rescue with daily walks, puppy cuddles, treats and feeding. Our dogs routine didn’t change even though we were not there. From us and our dogs, Desireé gets 5/5 paws. October 2017.
Desiree is just amazing with animals, you can see by the way they respond to her. Our fur babies were taken care of extremely well with photos of their activities sent to us. They were looking so content we thought they might miss Desiree more than us. Highly recommended. October 2017.
Flash says a big thanks to his “second mum” Desiree. It can be hard to decide what to do with your four legged friends when you go on holidays. I had been burnt in the past with “high end” pet kennels coming home to dogs with kennel cough. Thank goodness we found Desiree and her services. A happy Flash is all we need and he is always happy with Desiree. October 2017.
