“I have known Russell for over 10 years and he is very trustworthy and reliable.  He helped out at Exmouth Dog Training Club, where he became an essential team member helping with the smooth running of the classes.  I trust him with my own dogs and he helps handle them at Club, when he has not been asked to help with others.  If I am unable to run any classes, I know Russell will be willing and competent enough to take control without any trouble due to many years of experience handling dogs.


“I have been a customer of Exmouth Pet Sitters for years now and it breaks my heart that I will shortly be moving meaning that I will no longer be able to use Russell anymore : ( Russell has always been professional, helpful and very thoughtful, I would recommend his services to anyone looking for a reliable and trustworthy dog walker. Russell has never let me down once, come wind, rain and snow!!! Russell has always gone above and beyond, I have changed walk times and days since having my baby and he has worked around my schedule to help me. When I got married Russell brought my dog to the wedding venue for us so we could have photos taken with our pooch. After a couple of hours Russell took our dog home and stayed with him to keep him company. My dog was also very poorly about a year ago and as a result he had to have his left eye removed, Russell was extremely supportive and caring. If you are considering hiring a dog walker please think of Russell.

“Just to say thank you for walking my menagerie! It was reassuring to know that they were in good hands while I was away. I will certainly consider using your services for house sitting in the future – thank you once again.


“I would just like to say a big thank you to Russell for looking after our family rabbit Dusty! We rang at short notice after seeing his Ad on Facebook and asked him to look after our rabbit for 2 days – he promptly came over to meet us and Dusty and set about finding out everything he needed to know with regards to Dusty care. We felt so at ease after he left knowing that our rabbit would be in good hands. While we were away we had to call on Russell for an extra day – and he didn’t mind at all! Fantastic! On our return our post was picked up and left on the side for us and Dusty was clean fed and a happy bunny! :O) We were so pleased we have already booked Russell in for our next planned trip away! Thank you Russell.

“Thanks so much Russell for looking after both our hounds and house. They all looked in tip top condition on our return. You can be relied upon to carry out all that is required and we shall certainly call upon your services again. Highly recommended.

Yours gratefully,

Mike & Jackie.”

“”Russell came to us highly recommended as we have two nervous cats and didn’t want to stress them out anymore with a stay in the cattery and would like to keep them in their own happy environment. We have three cats in all and each one is different and has different needs. Russell has had our cats Gismo, Patch and Rosie several times now and it has been wonderful to come home to happy cats. I would highly recommend him to anyone else looking for a cat sitter whether it is for one day or a week or more. I’ve already booked Russell for my cats for Christmas and next year. Thank you Russell.

“I moved with my GSD, Diana, to Sidmouth in May 2010. Unfortunately, my 13 year old dog was homesick and had a hard time to get used to her new environment. In that time I found Russell a reliable pet sitter who did more for my dog than ever expected.

Working as a dentist for the NHS the whole day, it was really a relief to know that during my absence the dog is prefectly taken care of. I especially appreciate that Russell stays in the house and takes care of everything when I am away on holiday as my dog does not like kennels.

“I would like to thank Russell for looking after my Cockatiels and Parakeets as they were breeding and I didn’t want to up upset them with a move. I am 100% happy with his care for them and will be booking him every time in the future.


“We have no hesitation in recommending Russell of Exmouth Pet Sitters.  Our two Springer Spaniels quite simply adore him and it was with complete trust that we happlily left our home and our spaniels in the care of Russell.

“Russell fed my three cats twice last year while I went away on holiday.  It was so nice just to set off on holiday and not have to get them to a cattery.  He looked after them really well.  Three happy cats greeted me at the door when I arrived home and the house was lovely and tidy.  I highly recommend Russell, he does a good job and you can go away without any worries.
