what an amazing service

I have just come back home from my holiday and I feel the need to share what an amazing service Bretton pet sitting provides. I can be very anxious when I leave my fur baby and I am used to never completely enjoy my time away because I worry about her. Well not this time! Maxine kept sending me videos and pictures of my very well looked after Filippa. I could tell she was being spoiled and loved as much as when she is at home. Such an excellent service!! Thank you so much for the peace of mind.

I needed someone to look after my African Grey parrot for a week and got in contact with Bretton. I have nothing negative to say about the service I received and especially appreciated the regular updates whilst we were away. Definitely someone I will recommend to others.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Maxine for a first rate service.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Maxine for a first rate service. Whilst away she looked after our three cats with care and sent us daily photos and kept us updated on their well being. An excellent, trustworthy and caring service and would recommend to anyone considering a home pet sitting service. Once again many thanks.

We Cannot fault Bretton Pet Sitting

Didn't realise I'd not left a review. We Cannot fault Bretton Pet Sitting. You feel confident your pet (in our case our much loved but excitable whippet) is left in good hands. Thank You x

Maxine was wonderful whilst i was away and sent me regular updates and photos

My 21 mth old Pug Bertie stayed with Maxine and Charles from new years eve until the 16th January whilst we went abroad. This was the first time we have left Bertie but after meeting Maxine and Charles and Bertie having an overnight stay a few months before, we felt at ease leaving Bertie is such capable hands.
Maxine was wonderful whilst i was away and sent me regular updates and photos. It was a great comfort to see Bertie enjoying his stay with Maxine, and he was well looked after and wasn't short of cuddles! Bertie is due to stay with Maxine again on the summer and I know he'll be well looked after and enjoy his stay once again. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Maxine and highly recommend her. Thank you Maxine, Charles and Cree

We had one happy cat when we came home

Thank you so much for looking after Willow! She was so well looked after and spoilt with all the cuddles and playtime!
We highly recommend Maxine and Charles, they did a cracking job and you could tell by the photos/videos, Willow had made great friends too.
We had one happy cat when we came home. Looking forward to using you again.
Willow, Dee and Andy

I wouldn't hesitate to leave them with her again. A great service and far kinder than kennels. Thanks Maxine.

Recently left my two dogs with Maxine whilst I went on holiday. Both dogs have special needs - Pearl is deaf and blind and Sol suffers occasional fits. Both dogs settled well and Maxine kept us updated regularly with WhatsApp messages and pictures which were gratefully received. I wouldn't hesitate to leave them with her again. A great service and far kinder than kennels. Thanks Maxine.

Thank you

Thank you for taking care of freddie and the regular updates we received, he will be returning x

Maxine is brilliant

Maxine is brilliant at what she does. She had my dog Luna for just over week and she settled in so well. She is very trustworthy and kept me updated everyday how she was getting on. Luna will be going back to stay in the future as she had a lovely time.

Highly recommend and will definitely use Bretton Pet sitting again.

Our dog Freddie stayed over for the night and Maxine was brilliant! Kept us up to date throughout with posts and messages, which puts you at ease whilst you are away! Highly recommend and will definitely use Bretton Pet sitting again.

Couldn't recommend her enough

Nero had the best time with Maxine, he settled in straight away and she kept us up to date throughout with pictures and messages. Our boy came home happy, relaxed and well looked after! Couldn't recommend her enough, wonderful service and fantastic value for money.

highly recommend

My three rats stayed for three night, they were very well looked after, and I was updated when needed. Absolutely great service, highly recommend!


Fantastic, Archie loves coming to his doggy day care xx

Couldn't ask for a nicer lady than Maxine

Poppy had her first overnight stay last night dear after being a little wary soon settled in. I feel so relieved I have found somewhere she is settled for when I go away or need day care. Couldn't ask for a nicer lady than Maxine to look after her. Xx

Very pleased with the service received from Maxine.

Very pleased with the service received from Maxine. She was very helpful and accommodating when we needed someone to watch Blue at very short notice. Blue has a great time when he is there and last time he wasn't even bothered that I was there to pick him up lol. Think he would rather have stayed

Our dog Aussie

Our dog Aussie (age 9) along with family dogs Sadie (age 9) and Mable (age 5 months) went to stay with Maxine for the weekend, all three dogs had a great time, Aussie in particular has poorly feet and is in need of medication and can fret when he is away from home, Maxine had looked after dogs with a similar disability as Aussie which re assured me he was in good hands, in turn Maxine assured us with pictures on Facebook and texts that all three dogs were having a great time and were very well looked after. What can I say...fantastic dog care would definitely recommend to a friend and would certainly book in with Maxine again. Thanks Maxine..

Another fantastic stay for the boys

Another fantastic stay for the boys, Louis was a little unwell on the first night but Maxine contacted me immediately to discuss and kept me updated. I've used a number of different people in the past for home boarding but Maxine is definitely head and shoulders above the rest.

Great service!

Great service! Maxine kept us well informed throughout Bailey's stay. Would highly recommend. Very pleased

by Regina F on Blank Business Name

Maxine looked after my beautiful, hairy baby, my pride and joy, Princess. I have never left her before and Maxine completely made me and Princess feel at ease. She sent me regular updates about how she was, so I was never worried. I came back to a very happy and contented girl and couldn't recommend Bretton Pet Sitting enough. Thankyou Maxine.

Excellent service every time

I have been using Maxine's services for years. I used to split my pets up between kennels/catteries and small animal boarders. We own rabbits, cats, fish, a cockatiel and currently 1 dog. It is complete peace of mind when I go away now that they are all cared for by Maxine. Rosie our Irish Setter is always so pleased when Maxine visits to collect my key and we don't get the sulkiness before we leave. All pets are well looked after and happy.

Another Great Stay

Another great stay for my two boys, can't praise Maxine enough. Both my dogs love going to Maxine's and they come home happy and relaxed.

maxine was fantastic

maxine was fantastic. she was very relaxed with my dogs and kept me informed via text about how the dogs were and how settled they were. although there were other dogs around when i picked my dogs up it was clear that they were happy and did not mind the other dogs, much to my surprise! brilliant!

Maxine was real good

Maxine was real good with kizzy and I got txt let me now how she was and she picked her up and drop her off to are new house thanx you so much.

Thank you Maxine

From the minute Lexi arrived with Maxine she was totally happy and busy sniffing around Maxine's home! Maxine made me feel very relaxed and I felt that I could 100% trust her with my puppy ! Maxine kept me updated during the time and Put my mind at ease! I have booked Maxine again and feel totally at ease and have no hesitation at recommending her to anyone! When I called to collect Lexi she seemed very happy and contented ! Thank you Maxine

I would highly recommend

The minute Maxine opens that front door - Oscar can't get in quick enough. Maxine is thorough from start to finish. Listens to your needs as she understands that your animal is part of your family. We love how Oscar comes home happy (we can see it in his eyes). Going to Maxine definitely beats going to any kennels. I would highly recommend Maxine and Bretton Pet Services.

Completely Satisfied

Completely satisfied as usual. Maxine is totally professional, caring and calm. She always keeps in touch. Many thanks, Maxine. PS. Thank you for the lovely photos, Maxine - I will treasure them.

Jock stayed with Maxine

Jock stayed with maxine while we were on holiday. He had a wonderful time we were kept fully informed of how he was with pictures and messages. On collection he was ao happy to see us but also went to maxine, for me that shows how happy he sas in her care. Will only use her in future :)

It has been very successful

Ruby has had two days day care with Maxine whilst I am at work. She has been really relaxed and chilled on collection. It has been very successful and I have booked her in for future days and hope to use Maxine for longer holiday stay in the future.

Maxine is very caring

We have just returned from a 10 day holiday and arrived back to find our lurcher X in very good form - happy, healthy and relaxed. Maxine is very caring, loves animals and always keeps in touch via text and email, which is very reassuring. I have no hesitation at all in recommending her and will certainly be booking Honey in again. Many thanks, Maxine.

Another Fantastic Stay

Another fantastic stay for my two boys with Maxine really can't recommend her service highly enough. Love the regular updates via Facebook and text. A1 service, dogs love it there and always get a speedy response if I have any questions.

by Ildiko on Blank Business Name
I would highly recommend

Ildiko Edge – Alfie stayed with Maxine for 12 days while we were away on our holidays. He had a fantastic time and was very well looked after. I had regular messages and photos via email and facebook and I loved the video showing him playing in Maxine's garden. He looked happy and content which was very reassuring while we were away. I wouldn't hesitate using Maxine again and I would highly recommend her excellent service.

I left Honey with Maxine

I left Honey with Maxine for a short stay recently and I now feel very confident about leaving her soon for a week's stay and again a little later for a 10 day stay. Maxine is conscientious, professional, caring and always very efficient with the booking system.

Honey seemed very content

My young lurcher stayed with Maxine for one night and a day this time to see how she settled in. Maxine is very attentive and sent me a message to tell me how Honey was getting on. She always answers messages straight away, which is very reassuring. Honey seemed very content when she was picked up. I have made 3 more bookings with Maxine.

A1 service

I have used Maxine a good few times now and can't praise her enough. Both dogs run in when we take them to her, she gives them the best care, regular updates and the dogs come back happy and relaxed. A1 service.

Really Happy with the Pet Sitting

Really happy with the pet sitting. Maxine kindly stepped in at short notice to help us out when our other arrangements had fallen through due to sickness. She was recommended to me by a friend. Really smooth process, happy dog, happy owners. Thank you :)

Second time we have used

Second time we have used Maxine and can't stress enough how fantastic her service is. Fantastic with the dogs and true peace of mind when they with her.

Maxine looked after our French Bulldog

Maxine looked after our French Bulldog "Sid" for two days last week. We can't praise her enough, Sid was happy and relaxed the whole time he was there and Maxine was even kind enough to update us with how he was doing via text message. Maxine provided a professional and affordable service which we will definitely recommend to others and use again ourselves on the future.

Definitely a home from home

Our 2 little dogs, Morgan & Pepper, came home from Maxine's very happy girls. They couldn't have been better looked after. Definitely a home from home. They're already booked in again. We can go Christmas shopping and the girls will have a great weekend :)

Highly recommended!!!

Highly recommended!!! My one was very well looked after, I don't think he wanted to come home! I will definitely be using Bretton Pet Sitting again!!

Can't praise Maxine enough

Cant praise Maxine enough. Dogs came home happy relaxed and stress free will definitely use her again and would highly recommend her.

They had a brilliant time

Just picked up my two Jack Russells after a short stay with Maxine. They had a brilliant time and are both happy and relaxed - nothing like when they've been in kennels! The price was really reasonable and booking through My Dog Buddy was easy. Highly recommended!
