Hampstead Hounds Testimonials

Kat, Swiss Cottage

“Hampstead Hounds have been nothing but great with my two dogs. It took me a while to find the right sitters for the dogs as one of them can be difficult at times with new people, especially given her age. HH have made a huge difference to us as we have finally found the right people for the fusspot and her sidekick. The dogs love spending time with HH and they have even helped look after them and the house whilst I have been away. I cannot speak more highly and positively about Hampstead Housesitters.”

Yuka & Tetsu, Hampstead

“Christiana and her team has been looking after our 13 year-old dog Kuri on a regular basis. My husband and I travel frequently and needed a reliable sitter whom we can trust, gets along with Kuri, and flexible around our needs. Kuri has never stayed in a kennel so we also needed some one who can come to our house and stay with her.

“Another reason why we wanted some one to stay at the house was due to Kuri’s medical condition at the time. She was developing occasional back problem so needed to seek the vet if & when something happened. Christiana’s team are familiar with handling dogs with specific needs.

“We hate to leave our baby dog behind for travel but Christiana’s team bring ease by providing updates and photos. We can tell a lot from just looking at Kuri in the photo… whom looks comfortable, happy, and healthy.

“We recommend Christiana’s team to any dog owner who wants the best for their doggie while they’re away.”

Candice & Richard, Hampstead

“Hampstead Hounds is great: flexible, reliable, and cheerful. Our two-year-old Broadway loves his romps on Hampstead Heath with them. He always comes home with a smile on his furry little face.”

Letizia, Hampstead

“Christiana and Fleur have been a great help since we have met them. They are very reliable, efficient and always look to accommodate our requests. Even if we call them last minute for an extra walk. Baloo simply adores them and we are very happy we have found someone we can finally count on.”

Merrin & Gabe Jones, Hampstead

“Hampstead Hounds has been an integral part of Charlie’s first few months with us. We have really leaned on them to take charge of Charlie’s puppy care while we are at work and during housesitting stays during our summer holiday. They are extremely in tune with her and have given her the support and training to be a happy and confident puppy. She now is happily walking with us on the lead, on the Heath, and can even enjoy the pub with us. They have tailored her care and handled it all- be it scheduling puppy play dates, socialising her around town, or teaching her how to fetch- they provide an amazing bespoke service. Our little girl loves them so much and we are so thankful!”

Susan, Hampstead

“I have two dogs, one a somewhat anxious and reactive mature dog with a chequered history, and the other a rescue puppy. Though both dogs have differing habits, they both need loads of reliable and lengthy exercise. Hampstead Hounds not only manages to tire them out, but they also bring them back happy and relaxed. The older dog has no fear about the dog van because all walks are on foot and he is not held captive to so many other dogs in his face in the dark. He is literally a changed animal and for their kindness, attention to detail, and obvious love for both dogs I cannot recommend Hampstead Hounds highly enough. They have also done housesitting for me with great success and satisfaction on my part! A truly great service.”

Elsa Poli, Primrose Hill

“We have just returned from a great holiday and thank you, as on our return we were very happy to find our cats healthy and content. They looked completely relaxed, even the very shy one who must have been comfortable in the company of HH so that was great. Thank you very much for such a good service!”

Bethan Rogers, Tufnell Park

“I just wanted to say thank you to you and your team for taking such good care of Jezebel. Lovely to come home to such a happy, healthy cat :)”

Scott and Claire – Primrose Hill

“Our lives changed when we found Hampstead Housesitters. No more worry about our 4-legged family members left at home. Our dog and two cats come running when HH arrive, tales wagging. We can leave home, whether for the day or for weeks at a time, knowing our precious pets are protected, well fed, bathed, exercised, and loved. When one of our cats needed some medical attention while we were away, they took care of the vet appointment, ordered new food, and reassured us all was well. Plus, we love the email updates and photos, and coming home to a clean and tidy house is wonderful. Thank you Hampstead Housesitters!”

Rez and Megan – Belsize Park

“My husband and I cannot say enough good things about Hampstead Housesitters. We’d previously been apprehensive about leaving our pups with anyone other than family, but Christiana and her team have put all of our worries at ease. They truly take care of our two dogs and home, as if they were their own. It’s so nice to know that we can plan future trips without having to stress about who will look after our furry critters. Thank you for everything, Hampstead Housesitters!”

Caroline – Swiss Cottage

“I am so grateful to have found Hampstead Housesitters to watch Ruby my Doberman during her 2 months of post knee surgery recovery. Their knowledge, care, attention and love (and gifts and treats) are what I believe led to a successful recovery! Early morning wake ups, swelling, limping, anxiety, medications- nothing was ignored. They went beyond the call of duty for her, as if she was part of the family. The service is truly tailored to you and your pet’s needs- no matter how high they may be. I now rely on them for dog and cat sitting while away and can leave with peace of mind knowing that they will be cared for so lovingly. I, without hesitation, highly recommend HH for all your pet or housesitting needs. Thank you!! Caroline”

Lucy – Hackney

“Having been incredibly reluctant to leave our two dogs and home with anyone previously I received a professional and comprehensive care plan and was assured that all the requirements and needs would be met. Our two dogs received optimum care and attention the entire time. The dogs are so relaxed and happy it’s been an absolute dream!

Thank you Hampstead Housesitters for everything! I really couldn’t have asked for any more!”

Maureen – Hampstead

“Only living in London for 2 months, I was reluctant to leave my dogs. Our dog groomer referred Hampstead Housesitters to me. So far they are my best find in London! She made me feel so at ease leaving town.
She fed my older dog a special diet and assured me that she would be in touch with the Vet if needed. The daily emails and pictures of Charlie and Tucker out and about in London made me so happy. I really don’t think they missed us! I’m so happy that I found such a nice, professional, loving Pet and House Sitting company. Charlie and Tucker have been spoiled!!”

Nicola & Dan – Hampstead

“We have two indoor cats, both of whom can’t deal with going to a cattery. When Christiana and her team look after my cats rather than them being stressed out, unsettled and moody when we return, it is as if we had never left. The process was fantastic, with an initial meet and greet with Christiana, during which you can tell she has a genuine love for animals. Whilst we were away we received regular updates and pictures, with our cats both becoming famous on Hampstead Housesitters Instagram!

We’d highly recommend Christiana and the Hampstead Housesitters team, and we feel happy and secure leaving our cats at home when we go away in the future, knowing they’re in safe hands with the best Cat Sitters in town.”

Michael – Hampstead

Coming from a really bad experience with another service I found Hampstead Housesitters to be the perfect service for our cat! Although Furbie is a bit snobby for a cat, she enjoys their company and we finally have peace of mind that she is in good hands and looked after properly when we are away.

Antonia – Hampstead

Hampstead Housesitters is highly recommended by us. Christiana and her team are caring, reliable, professional, trustworthy and helpful. Above all Wiggy our cat loves them. Since they have been looking after him, he has started playing on his own which is lovely. Christiana is as communicative or not as you want her to be. I cannot take calls during the day so she left me notes and sent text messages. They never make us feel like neurotic mad cat people and after the first day we realised Wiggy our cat was in the hands of experts, and we relaxed.

Clare – Notting Hill

When I travel, it is a great comfort to me that my cats can stay at home, being looked after by Hampstead Housesitters. I am completely confident about security and the best thing is that I know that someone will play and cuddle with them a little every day, whilst I am away. I know how happy they are because photos are emailed every day and I can see they are well. I’ve tried several different cat care options – but Hampstead Housesitters is the best: thank you!

Matteo – Hampstead

Our cat Nanup is especially shy, picky with food and needs extra care due to her long hair. Hampstead Housesitters understand and go above and beyond to make sure our cat’s special requirements are met. They bring over new toys so that our cat can feel comfortable in their company. They even managed to groom our cat, a task that even for us isn’t particularly easy to accomplish.
