Much of our new business comes from referrals and recommendations made by our clients to their friends and family, for which we are very grateful! We do offer a 'refer a friend' scheme, whereby, if you reccomend a friend, colleague or family member to us, who have not booked with us before, you will receive 20% off your next booking and they will receive 20% off their first booking (terms and conditions apply).
Please see below for a handful of our clients’ feedback and thoughts on the services that we provide for then on a regular and irregular basis.
‘Have you ever had this feeling? You’re packing for holiday and you know you've forgotten something but can't quite remember what it is? This happened to me 3 years ago and after frantically looking for a cattery and a hen sitter to no avail, I stumbled upon Helen, owner of Saffron Sitters, who calmly and efficiently organised one of her team to come and look after all our pets in our own home. Since then we've acquired ferrets as well and we haven't looked back! Our sitter is brilliant with animals, caring for them as if they were her own. Nothing is too much trouble and I know that if anything happens Emma will handle it. It really adds to the enjoyment of our holiday as we know our pets are as happy as we are when we are away!’
"We were very impressed with the care our elderly cats, and indeed our home, received from Saffron Sitters. They go far beyond what you would expect from such a company and were happy to accommodate all requests for our fussy felines. Their continued care at short notice when we were stranded due to the ash cloud was a great relief to us and we would have no hesitation in using them again in the future."
Amanda, Bishops Stortford
"Saffron Sitters were great, when I went away for a long weekend, they took my dog on his normal walks so his routine wasn't interrupted. We will be using you again!"
Charlotte, Saffron Walden
"I'm always impressed with Helen's super-quick response, and ability to find me a pet-sitter so efficiently, even when I've left it quite late in the day. It's been great knowing someone reliable will feed and look after our cat (and happily waters the plants) while we're away. A far less stressful experience for the cat than having to be boarded somewhere. And less stressful for me not having to ask neighbours to deal with litter trays! Would recommend."
"Saffron Sitters provide us a trustworthy, reliable and flexible dog walking service tailored to suit our needs. Helen is great with dogs and our Mini Schnauzer loves spending time with her looking forward to her daily walks. Helen has proven very accommodating when our plans go awry and is always on hand to step in to help. Thoroughly recommended."
Tom, Stratford St Mary
"We have used your dog-sitting walking service twice. An overnight stay and daily walking service whilst we were on holiday. Each time we were very satisfied with the whole service from initial contact with the office, to meeting the people who would be caring for our dogs, to follow up. Both Jess & Emma seemed to really understand our needs and anxieties re leaving our dogs, going the extra distance in texting & e-mailing us while we were absent. Highly recommend this professional yet personal service, will certainly use again if/when needed."
Anonymous, Saffron Walden
"We really did leave it to the very last minute to book “a holiday” for our two boys Brandy and Whiskey, the Cavaliers. Helen was extremely helpful and very kindly found us Jennifer Lambert and family and we even met them beforehand on their farm. They both had no problems in integrating themselves into their family and pets and had a brilliant time socialising, in fact I think Brandy was a little reluctant to leave!! Jennifer text us to let us know that they were both well and had settled in, which was lovely. We would have no hesitation in recommending Saffron Sitters and will definitely use them again. An excellent service was provided by all."
"We have often found ourselves struggling to make arrangements for our brood of animals whenever we book holidays or weekend breaks. So you can imagine our relief when we found Saffron Sitters. Not only were they more than capable of taking care of our various creatures, they also gave us added peace of mind knowing that our home was also in very safe hands while we were away. We will definitely be back for more … and that will include taking advantage of their babysitting services!"
Wendy, West Bergholt
"I originally started using Saffron Sitters for dog walking and they have always proved to be reliable. More importantly Vincent the golden retriever loves his walks with Emma. Subsequently I have started using them for cleaning services and again I can't fault them. I would sincerely recommend Saffron Sitters."
Andrew and Vince, Great Chesterford
"We have found that the Saffron Sitters dog walking service very reliable and flexible. The walkers are friendly and our dog obviously enjoys his daily outing. I'd recommend them if you are looking for a good dog walking service"
Richard, Saffron Walden
"I have used Saffon Sitters over the course of the last 2-3 years and always been very happy with the prompt service. They will always to try and arrange dog sitting, even at very short notice and try as hard as they can to ensure you get the sitter you ask for. It is a very professional and efficient organisation. The sitters I have used have all been excellent. You never feel worried when you walk away from your pet, as you know they are in safe hands. They love animals and it shows."
"I was lucky to have found Saffron sitters last November. Since then Jessica supported occasionally by Jackie have helped me by looking after my puppy now 8 months old. They are both lovely and reassuring even when I am sure challenged by my puppy. This has allowed me after a 17 year gap to again enjoy having a dog. I also must mention Helen who always responds to any messages and is so helpful. Frankly had I known of this service I would not have waited all these years for another dog. I can highly recommend this service and thank them."
"I have found saffron sitters to be excellent value for money. They always try to be flexible and accommodating to any requests, which has made our lives far less stressful! Saffron sitters have been very conscientious in finding the right person for the job and we have been really happy with the service. There is good communication and staff are always friendly and helpful!"
‘I just wanted to say a big Thank you for all the dog walking and day care you have done for me, what a relief it is to know my dogs are being so well looked after, you have always covered every date requested even at the last minute and your dog walkers are punctual and very friendly - Brilliant Service.’
