Siamese cats are very sociable, and thrive on contact with people and we could see from the videos and photos which Mark was sending nearly daily, that they bonded really well with him. They loved his company. He was very diligent at taking care of our home, especially when the new cooker had to be installed while we were away and Mark went out of his way to help and liaise with the electrician.

Looking at Mark's strengths, he is very trustworthy, he is a great communicator and he has a lovely relaxed nature and a sense of humour. We would be delighted to have Mark looking after Maui, Moana and the fish again but we realise that our chances are now decreased as we are letting you all know how good he is.

Mark, we wish you all the best with your future furry and human friends!

Due to her life before me, Floss worries terribly about being left but is a very easy, friendly,happy and obedient dog. I wanted her to have the best week and have a holiday equal to mine and she certainly did that. I think she hit the jack pot!
After reading the first account of Mark and Flossy's first fun and relaxed day together, I felt so at ease and relaxed.
I chose Mark as he displayed upfront character references. Which all portrayed him to be very reliable, punctual ,friendly meticulous, conciencious and a very honest, gentle family guy. Despite being very busy, Mark came the month before my holiday to meet Floss and get his bearings.

I cleaned my house and garden well, so that it would be decent for him to stay in, in respect of his time and predicted great service. This allowed him a break and to spend the time with Floss.

Mark was very calm natured and happy to cope with any foibles with Floss or my house as is newly renovated.
He came in plenty of time to go over things, such as the local area walks, Flossy's medications, food and routine as well as things regarding the house again.

We kept int touch every day and it was so lovely to see the effort he went to, to make the week a success for him self, the dog and for me to relax while I was away.
I'd go as far as to say, that I laughed at every text-his humour is great!

Mark fitted well in to my surrounds, rubbed along with my neighbours and worked out a solution to anything that did arise.
I could see from pictures that Floss was having by far the better holiday, whilst keeping her routine as much as possible .
My house was left just as he found it with a lovely note filling me in on everything for my home coming.
The neighbours sang his praises and I almost felt guilty for coming back after a week.
Mark gave Floss, gentle time, fun understanding and a quality week.

I'd be really upset if I can't manage to book Mark again as I had the perfect house sitter and person to look after my home and my most prize possession Floss.

It was quite clear to me that she was calm and happy and that Mark formed a lovely bond with her. He took really good care of my house and left it clean, neat and tidy. I found Mark to be friendly, funny and very considerate. He was very reliable and respectful. I would be delighted if I could have him stay every time I go away. I couldn't recommend him highly enough. Please feel free to email me if you would like any more details.

He has run his own business for many years and therefore has experience and skills in logistics and organisation.

Mark loves animals and has had his own pets in the past. He is also a very family orientated person who cares deeply for his family and friends.

I would have no hesitation in asking him to house sit for me and i recently had cause to ask him to care for my cat, Blue.

For any other information please do not hesitate to contact me via email or by landline

He has always loved animals particularly cats and dogs and they tend to warm to him very quickly and trust him.

When it comes to looking after his own home he is very cautious and always puts his alarm on at night and full locks on the door despite living in a very safe area. He takes no chances.

His property is in pristine condition and he keeps it looking in top shape. He takes much pride in his home comforts and surroundings.

I have no hesitation in recommending my dad to house sit anyone’s property. I know he would look after it like his own and any animal would feel safe and at ease in his company.

I have been good friends with Mark for more than 16 years and would happily trust him to look after my house. He is very kind and thoughtful and when he takes on a responsibility takes it seriously. He ran a courier business for many years where deadlines mattered and he always made sure his targets were met (including crucial medical deliveries).
I have regularly stayed at his house which he keeps in very good order and we have been on several holidays together where Mark always takes on more than his fair share of the organising and arrangements which he is excellent at doing. With both his self-employed work life and his interests he has had to be very organised and disciplined to make sure things are done in good time. I know Mark is fond of animals and has looked after them for a couple of friends when they have been away on holiday.
I would have no problem in recommending him to look after anyone’s house and/or pets.

I went to primary school with Mark and have known him for nearly 50 years. He is an honest, reliable and trustworthy person. He has an ability to get on with people and is one of the most genuine friends I am pleased to know. He has a great sense of humour which makes him good to be around.
He loves animals, and they seem to like him too. He has a an excellent track record in business and believes in customer service. His responsibility to customers is second to none.
He has a great circle of friends, and is close to his family. I would have no hesitation in recommending Mark to house-sit or look after and care for pets to the highest standards and in the most responsible way.

Over the years I have known Mark he has become a reliable trusted friend who can always be counted upon with his altruistic nature in helping others always at the fore.

Mark is a hard working individual and can be trusted to always give 100% in whatever he does, often going above and beyond.

Mark is an extremely caring and compassionate person and any role that requires these qualities will see Mark at his best.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Mark for any position of trust and a need for reliability.

Mark has house sit for myself and my dog a number of times when I have been travelling on business.

My dog at the time absolutely loved him, I think she was rather disappointed when I returned & Mark left.

I have recently acquired 2 puppies who will be having the pleasure of his company very soon

It’s reassuring to know that if I have to go away even at the drop of a hat I can always rely on Mark.

Thank you

The two spaniels really enjoy the long walks in Lyme Park that Mark takes them on and our new dachshund puppy absolutely adores him
It's so nice to come home to happy dogs and a well looked after home.
We have no hesitation in recommending.
