Customer Reviews

I left my pouch with Sarah, who works with Amber last December for about 3 weeks. Firstly, Eliot isn’t the most balanced of canines…. He’s scared of bowls, hand bags, small children, not to mention dogs that are bigger than him, but yet thinks he’s big and tough when it comes to foxes, rabbits and squires. Amber went to great lengths to get him the right sitter in the right environment. He had two trail sleep overs, first with Amber (who Eliot adores as she always takes such good care of him at the vets) and then with Sarah.
When I first took Eliot to Sarah’s place he kinda mooched around a bit, and Sarah was already putting his bowl in a place he’d be comfortable with. I think they got on great! Certainly when I returned Eliot was in great shape, happy, cuddle and Sarah even took him for a haircut for me.

I will definitely use Sarah and Ambers pet sitting service again, Eliot really likes them both!

Thank you so much for looking after our little ladies Holly and Molly. Being rescue cats, they were incredibly shy but Pam was great! She let them have their space and updated me regularly!! Thanks again and will definitely use Amber’s again! Xx Charlotte, Dec 2015


Our westies Monty and Maisie had a great time staying with Sarah while we went on holiday. It was ‘home from home’ for them and I had no worries leaving them with Sarah who is professional,kind and caring …… but most important a real dog lover. Monty and Maisie love her!  Joan, Eltham. Oct 2015

Thank you so much to Heather for looking after my kitties when I was away! I have come back and they are so healthy and happy. Thanks so much for sending me daily updates and pictures whilst I was away. So very happy to come home to happy and stress free cats 🙂  Desiree Plumstead.

It sounds silly, we know, but we have always found it dreadfully difficult leaving our little black cat for any length of time, especially now he has reached the ripe old age of 16 and is increasingly dependent upon us. However, our minds were instantly put at rest after meeting Heather from Ambers Pet Sitting Services! Heather and the care she gives is truly wonderful!

We felt very nervous and worried on the morning of the day we left for our trip, hoping Clyde was going to be OK whilst we were away. We had barely arrived in the airport lounge when a text and a WhatsApp arrived from Heather with reassuring photos and video footage proving that she and Clyde were already getting on as if they’d known each other for years! We thought he only purred like that for us!

Heather’s efforts continued throughout our time away. She sent daily messages, photos and videos and she even bought us a CONGRATULATIONS card from Clyde on the day of our Wedding. She went over and beyond what was expected of her and we are incredibly grateful!

We’ve only been back a few days and Clyde was clearly happy to see us. He was calm, content and hadn’t lost any weight – he looked great! However, every time the front door as much as creaks his little ears perk up and we’re sure he’s hoping Auntie Heather has arrived to give him his daily cuddles!

If you’re lucky enough to be in the area that Ambers Pet Sitting Services look after, I would have no hesitation in recommending their brilliant and professional service.  (Donna, Plumstead, July 2015)

We recently left our two cats in Ambers care for the first time. The oldest and most accident prone, Basil, managed to contract an upper respiratory tract infection whilst we were away. Amber was fantastic, really looking after him. She was expert at administering his medication, not easy with a grumpy, old and very large shorthair, even buying him liver pate so that he would swallow his tablets. We were regularly updated on how Basil was recovering, which meant we we could relax on holiday rather than stressing about the cats. When we returned both cats looked happy, relaxed and well. We would thoroughly recommend Ambers Pet Sitting Service. Alison, Blackheath, August 2014



We were reassured our cats were in good hands whilst we were away as I got text updates and they were even bought a catnip toy. We found milk in the fridge with a note which was bought for us which we felt was very thoughtful and kind. Definitely recommend. :)) Vicki, Charlton – June 2014

Both Amber and Pam have always been very patient with my very nervous and neurotic cat. Thy are always flexible and do their best to help. I feel very confident leaving my pet with them 🙂 Alice, Hither Green, May 2014

Our cats are always well cared for, and the regular updates while we are away are reassuring. Highly recommended.  Megan, Charlton – Feb 2014

“Amber (and her team) has looked after our two cats on several occasions whilst we have been on holiday and we would not hesitate to recommend her professional, reliable and friendly service. Our rescue cats are too nervous to go to a cattery so it’s great to know that they are well looked after in their own home. Amber keeps a routine and visits them at regular times and we always return to happy and relaxed cats, and their litter tray and feeding area are spotlessly clean. She keeps in contact by text whilst we are away and it’s a weight off our mind to know that they being looked after by someone who cares about animals and has a wealth of veterinary nursing experience.” (
Fiona, Blackheath, April 2014)

“We regularly use Ambers cat sitting service for our two Russian Blues. It is such a relief to know your much loved pets are in safe hands when you go away, and knowing Am

ber is a veterinary nurse puts our minds at ease, as we know we are leaving our cats with someone who loves animals. Amber keeps in contact with us when needed, and texts / puts photos on her facebook page so that we can see the boys are OK when we are away.Knowing our house cats are safe in their own home is a much better option to us than putting them in a cattery, and we dont know what we would do without Amber!” (Becky, Greenwich, April 2013)

“You can tell they genuinely care about pets! Thank you so much Amber :-)” (Hannah, Blackheath)

“Ambers Pet Sitting Services looked after my Parson’s Russell Terrier for quite some time – my little fella is a challenge to say the least but the skill, care and attention that was given to Charlie was first class. Ambers Pet Sitting Services really know about animals – are trustworthy, professional and affordable – really what more can you ask – if you care about your pet – you would use this service they put your animal first!!!! To me that is top of the list, but they are also reliable professional AND trustworthy – YOU CANT GET MORE in my view and I would recommend them highly without reservation”. (Heather, London)

“Amber’s is amazing with my dogs, they come back from a week or even two with amber and her family totally worn out…… This says to me they have had just a good as holiday as us!!!!!!! Lady and Rocky always get excited when we have pulled up outside ambers or when they see her at the vets (until the consulting room four opens lol) would and have recommended amber with 100% confidence….”(Sarah, Blackheath)

“I have two boxers and we have been using Ambers Pet Sitting Services for a number of years. Amber is a very experienced, efficient and caring veterinary nurse. In consequence, I know that if my dogs become unwell, they will receive immediate veterinary attention. Amber has not only looked after our dogs when they were healthy but she has also happily taken over the care of our sick boxer when we had to go away. I can confidently say that, for my dogs Ambers Pet Sitting Services are home from home….” (Mrs Harris, Blackheath, March 2013)

“I used a cattery for my cat Chrystal a couple of years ago, but she didn’t react well to the experience. Thank goodness I found Amber! I’ve used her cat sitting service on three occasions now and each time I’ve come home to a happy and well cared for cat. If you are looking for someone to look after you cat/dog whilst you take a well earned break then give Amber a try. I’m sure you will be delighted with the service, and so will your pet”. (Alan, Blackheath, March 2013)

“I have always worried about leaving my cats when I go on holiday even when they are in the hands of trusted neighbours. Since I discovered Amber’s Pet Sitting Services I go away confident that they will both be looked after beautifully until I get back.  Amber has a warm and professional approach to the job and when she came for an initial visit she took time to get to know my cats. It also gave me time to talk to Amber about their habits, likes and dislikes. So now I know I will come home to two very contented, happy cats.  For that reason I can enjoy my holiday even more and will confidently recommend Amber to all my friends.” (Val, Greenwich, Sept 2012)

“I have been using Ambers pet sitting Services for my Boxer Bob(1yr) for about 6 months and have always found her so reliable and helpful. I often need to use her services last minute and she and Simon will always do their best to squeeze us in and help  out in any way they can.  Simon was Bobs allocated walker.  Her whole team have been so professional and friendly. Bob has had some medical problems and is quite a nervous dog and it is very reassuring to know he is in safe hands as Simon had a really good way with Bob.  Amber is a fully trained veterinary assistant. I feel very lucky to have found Amber and Simon to look after my dog” (Natalie, London, Sept 2012)

“Amber has babysat my 3 cats on several occasions while I have been on holiday. She has proved to be a reliable, professional and caring lady. She has looked after the cats very well and has given useful feedback on my return. I would thoroughly recommend Amber to babysit your cats. They will be in safe hands, you will get value for money and you can relax and forget about your furry dependents for a little while!!” (Jo, Blackheath London, July 2012)


“We’ve been using Amber’s services for a couple of years now and she comes around to our house (or her colleague does) to feed our cat Trumpet while we are on holiday.  It’s nice to get an sms from Amber from time to time giving us an update, we can relax knowing Amber is feeding our cat and keeping an eye on him. It makes such a difference knowing that Trumpet is staying in his own house and not in a cattery.  Would highly recommend Amber.” (Sabine, Eltham, June 2012)

“We have used Amber’s services twice now for our two cats Merlin and Pickle, who came to us from a rescue shelter.  Consequently they are extremely nervous and cannot go into a cattery.  Both times Amber has visited them we have returned to happy relaxed cats which is quite something considering their disposition.  Their litter trays have been spotless and there feeding area kept clean and tidy.  We are really grateful to Amber for offering us peace of mind whilst we’re away and intend to use her services when we next go away. It is also reassuring to find the flat locked securely upon our return, with the post moved in doors and the plants watered. I don’t think Merlin and Pickle would have it any other way.”  (Mrs Cope, Hither Green, Dec 2011)

“I have now used Ambers Pet Sitting Services twice and have been more than happy with the service she provided.  Its great to go away and not worry about whether he is ok (we had a bad experience in the past with a different firm of petsitters which has left me anxious leaving him – yes I know he is only a cat!).  She texts me to let me know he is ok after the first and last visit and if there is a problem with him, calls immediately and deals with whatever it is in a very reassuring and professional way.  I find her trustworthy and reliable.”       (Mrs Turner, Greenwich)

“Amber looked after our dog Cokie over the Christmas period.  Cokie has special medical needs.  Amber took special care, the standard of care was second to none.  We will be using Ambers services again.” (Mrs Moroney-Bartley, London)

“What a relief to find a cat sitter who is not only reliable  and organised but provides advice on health and welfare issues too.  I can now go on holiday knowing that my cats will be well cared for”  (Ms Clare)

“Amber is friendly, reliable and professional.  I would recommend her to anyone that loves their pets and wants the best care for them.” (Mrs R Adams, Blackheath)

“We have now used Amber to come and look after our 3 cats whilst we have been away on 2 occasions.  We always find her very helpful and friendly.  Our cats are certainly much happier being looked after in their own home than being put in a cattery.  It is also reassuring to know that if illness/injury should unfortunately happen to your pets, they are in good hands as Amber is a trained veterinary nurse.  We will certainly be using Ambers services again in the future.” Mr & Mrs Monahan)

“Amber minds my dog Maisie when I go away.  I feel really lucky to have found her!  Amber is friendly and professional at all times and really puts your mind at ease when you are anxious about leaving your pet.  Amber is always prompt at returning calls and emails if you are making an enquiry.  Maisie is always happy and relaxed after spending time at Ambers.  I can leave Maisie with Amber and not worry how she is because I know she is being well cared for.  I would recommend Amber to anyone who wants their dog cared forl in a family home.” (Ms Milhench)
