Our senior dogs are in love with Saoirse! Our long term sitter fell ill earlier in the year & we have been trying different sitters. So, so happy to have met Saoirse. She really lit up when she met the puppies - they took to her immediately - hugging her legs. When we came home, the puppies were happy to see us but still cycled to her for cuddles. She spoiled them with attention, cuddles & walks. She adapted well to the various oddities of our house & routines of the dogs. We're planning on a trip in a couple of months & booked now to be sure she'd be available. Finding her has been a big load off my mind.
Saiorse is amazing, our three pups love her. Best of all, you can easily tell, she is kind, caring and very responsible. After years of looking for the perfect pet care, we will look no further! We moved to a new home, and we couldn't be happier to transition our dogs with Hashtag, knowing they're in great hands.
