"Miriam has been my dog sitter for about 4 years and I have complete faith in her ability to look after my 3 dogs, along with her own. My dogs are full-on hunting dogs (Hungarian Viszla) with a lot of energy and Miriam keeps them calm but well-exercised and doesn't let them run amok in her home. I know and trust that if there was an incident, she would deal with it in exactly the same way that I would - with authority and wouldn't panic. My dogs are as well behaved with her s they are with me. She has advised me at times on dog training and gently reminded me that it's an ongoing process - not something to be forgotten about after the puppy stage."

"I have employed Miriam's services on many occasions to look after my 2 dogs and cat whilst away form the odd day to extended periods of up to 2 weeks. On my return, I have always found my pets have been well cared for and very happy. I would not hesitate to employ her again and trust her with both my pets and my property."

"We were put in touch with Miriam when we needed help and advice about sorting out the unusual, aggressive behaviour of our male dog (we have a male and a female). Miriam came to see us, we talked about the difficulty we were having and she observed. She assessed us and our dog and working with us, showed how we could modify our dog's behaviour (and ours) to achieve our aims ! Miriam has a very clear and open method of training and easy to follow instructions, that, over the course of several weeks worked wonders. Harmony was restored in the household - we were delighted. I would recommend her without hesitation....ask her advice, you won't regret it."
