Our services

Cat Sitting and Pet Sitting

I come to your house and live with your cats and other pets in their own home while you are away so they can stay in their normal environment. With many years of experience as a pet owner and pet sitter I can give your pets the love and care they need.

Dog Walking

My Pet Buddy can only offer fairly limited shorter walks for smaller dogs as part of a house sitting booking. We can take them locally near your home or in the car and have doggy seat belts to keep them safe.

Garden Care

With our garden care service your plants will be cared for as well as your pets and can include watering of boarders and pots as well as lawn mowing so no need to come home to long grass again.

What our clients say

My name is Debbie we have Lizzie come to look after our animals. We have four cat’s two dogs and a very large aviary with a variety of bird’s budgies, rosella and kakariki. Lizzie is very kind and spends time with all the animals gives the dogs good walks and the cats lots of cuddles. We have a very difficult Siamese cat that has been very poorly in the past and need constant care and attention Lizzie was wonderful with her as I was so worried to leave her. Lizzie is very trustworthy honest and reliable I never have to worry when I go away that the house is looked after and all the animals have five star treatments all in their own home. We would like to say a very big thank you to Lizzie I don’t know what we would do without you.

Debbie Bear Cross

Liz has been looking after Millie for several years. We feel very comfortable going on holiday leaving Liz to look after the house, garden and our difficult dog. Millie is a rescue Staffie with a lot of problems. She has never fully recovered from her troubled start in life. Millie becomes overexcited and is difficult to control, she is boisterous, strong willed and not good with other dogs. We can only leave her with someone who if firm and understanding.

Liz looks after the house and garden as well, doing anything that needs doing, watering, even on one occasion supervising a builder who had not finished before we left. Millie loves Liz coming while we are away we can tell by her calm behavior when we return that they have had a good time.

Mike and Sue Broadstone

I found Liz Hawker looking through the web and coming across this one. On the first meeting pip was very relaxed and happy with her. Now years later she still sits Pip and the house, Pip is very relaxed on my return and Liz seems to be worn out with all the walking. Pip like to show her all the local area. We have used Liz for many years and I book her months in advance, to know that not only I can have a great time away but she also has a great time and is relaxed with Liz.

If you are worried if your dog/cat is on medication that has not been a problem for either. Liz always arrives shortly after we have left and texts us all is good and then I relax to start my business trip or holiday. Now Pip is an older lady she not walking as far but this is not a problem for Liz. She has been taken out in the car for a little different walk, with Liz’s husband driving and Pip sits on the knee, as she is normally a nightmare in the car. Even the house looks cleaner on my return. She is known as Aunty Liz as she is almost one of the family a friendly kind aunty who would do anything for you. We would recommend Liz without hesitation.

Selina Bournemouth

Recently my husband and I took a two week cruise to celebrate my 60th birthday I have a very treasured Yorkshire terrier who is our baby and a much loved cat. I was worried about leaving Mollie and Honey for such a long time. My vet had recommended Liz to me, so I got Liz to visit us on a regular basis so Mollie could get to know her and I am pleased to say she quickly became Mollies and Honeys friend and now we go away with complete confidence.

Joy Bournemouth

On my own and facing an unexpected operation I was searching for someone reliable to come in and feed my cats and was very relieved when the local vet provided me with Liz’s contact details and she proved to be a trustworthy and reliable person and I would have no hesitation in recommending her services and would be happy to use them again myself.

Rosemary Dorset

Liz has pet-sat for myself for the past six years on at least six occasions a year which enables myself to take holidays with peace of mind, that my two dogs Abbi and Oscar and Eddie the cat can still remain in their home environment. Abbi, Oscar and Eddie adore her. My pets are very happy and content with Liz living in my house, she walks the dogs every day and the house is cared for and kept secure.

Liz has proven to be very trustworthy and honest. I would not hesitate in recommending her as a pet-sitter and / or house sitter to anyone wishing to use her services.
