I have had the pleasure of having Lynda look after my pets a couple of times (dogs, cats, rabbits, chickens....). At all times Lynda has been exceptionally reliable, trustworthy and of all the animals love her. I would happily recommend Lynda to anyone who is looking for someone to love their pets while they are away

I have gone away several times in the last three years and each time left all my pets in the capable hands of Lynda and Krista. My pets include: a turtle, a frog, chickens, a rabbit, a cat and three dogs.
I could not more highly recommend carers for your pets. These ladies are loving, reliable and trustworthy.

It is such a relief to know my girls wont be left alone all day. Tui was in the habit of digging holes in my veggie garden when she was left by herself but with Lynda coming to walk her during the day my veggies can grow in peace. Lynda always texts me to let me know when she has been round and that everything is ok. She provides a great service and I would highly recommend it (I am sure your dog will appreciate it too!)

Pet Friends have looked after our cat, Bugsy, several times when we have been away. Lynda is lovely and obviously cares about the animals she is looking after. She is conscientious and goes the extra mile even providing tinned sardines when our cat became a “fussy cat” and needed his taste buds stimulating! I really appreciate getting the daily text message about how he is doing each day. I would have no hesitation in recommending Pet Friends.

In January of this year we had the pleasure of using Lynda from Pet Friends fabulous pet feeding service for our 3 cats. Not only did Lynda look after our 3 cats wonderfully but she also sent us a daily text of how they were without us. Lynda is totally reliable and will do whatever is required, including in our case, catching and releasing a baby bird caught by our cats between visits. Lynda also cleared our mail and watered all of our indoor and patio plants. I would unreservedly recommend Pet Friends service.

Lynda has looked after my 3 pets on different occasions. She Has fed my two cats, Buttons and Smudge when we have been away and each time she has sent me text messages to keep me updated on how they are. Lynda also walks my dog Doug regularly, sometimes several times a week. She has gone the extra mile when Doug found some coca cola and drank it, Lynda ensured Doug was ok and even telephoned the vet and took Doug to her house until I could collect him ( Doug was fine just very hyperactive) I would not hesitate to recommend Lynda and the pet feeding and dog walking services she provides. She offers a and reliable service each and every time.

Thanks for your dedicated care to our cats, Salt and Betsy. Great communication daily. Our recommendation of your service comes highly. Thanks.
Margaret and Brendon - Waikanae 2011
We heard about Lynda' good reputation from a friend who used her pet-minding services so asked her if she was game to look after our cats, chooks and 8 alpacas while we were away for 10 days at our son's wedding. This she did in an extremely competent manner and clearly enjoyed the novelty of feeding and watering the alpacas in addition to the more 'normal' cats and chooks. I guess the ultimate compliment we can pay her is that we will be away again in May and had no hesitation in re-engaging her.

Lynda from Pet Friends has been caring for my beloved dog Hunny Bubbles for about a year now. Hunny loves being at her home and spending time with her family and their dog Zac who has become a good friend. I have no hesitation in recommending Pet Friends to any prospective customer. The standard of care and quality of service is very high and it is a genuine relief to know that when I am away in Wellington, Lynda and Pet Friends are there to keep Hunny's life normal, make sure she is well fed, exercised and loved. I appreciate Pet Friends and Lynda and her family greatly.

Between January and February I hired Lynda to walk my two dogs. She was absolutely fantastic. Both dogs took to her really well and loved being around her. She went well beyond her duty and helped me out heaps.
Lynda was very flexible and always on time. My dogs always came back tired which was great as I knew they had had a good amount of exercise.
I can’t thank Lynda enough for her generous help and love towards my dogs. I would be very keen to use her again and would definitely recommend her to anyone wanting a truly good dog walker.

Thank you for taking us on so many adventures. We really appreciated your punctuality, real love and care, and how reliable you were. We are sad that we can't take you with us !
Teddy and Jazi - Raumati
Lynda, we are so appreciative of your help in caring for Trin and Bella through the last 6 months. Your gentle and caring manner is wonderful. We look forward to having your help in the future.
Glenys & Emmet - Otaihanga
Lynda has been such a huge help in managing our two dogs who were real trouble makers during the day while we were at work. They certainly aren’t easy dogs to wrangle but Lynda expertly handles them and they love her and their big walks! She’s flexible and works around our changing schedules which is such a big help. I trust her completely with them which is not something that I do with many people. I wouldn’t hesitate to hire her!
Becky - Raumati South 2020
We have been using Lynda to walk and, on occasions, pet sit our dog Boo since 2013. She is reliable (never had a sick day - must be all that walking and fresh air!), with such a kind, patient, and gentle nature. Boo adores her and so do we!
Jackson Family - Paraparaumu Beach 2020
I am so fortunate to have Lynda walking my fur babies for the last eight years. Lynda is reliable, trustworthy and consistent in her service. With one good dog and one ‘bad’ dog they are in excellent hands, and this brings me great peace of mind. Julie

Lynda has been a true gem walking my Mum's beloved dogs (staffies) this past year. She is kind, reliable and totally trustworthy. She is great with the dogs with a lovely sunny personality in all communications and contact. She is professional, very personable and very accommodating. Recommend her 100% without question.

I was very lucky to meet Lynda from Pet Friends via recommendation from a boutique cattery.
Since three years, Lynda has been genuinely caring for my two miniature dachshunds FTSE & Zorro on a regular basis when I am at work. She has been walking them, feeding & playing with them. The result my dogs love her to bits. When I am back from work, I find my doxies calm &
Lynda's easygoing, warm & friendly personality combined with her professional skills & experience is all you need to entrust your pets into her care.
I am very grateful for Lynda caring for FTSE & Zorro.
I would recommend Lynda to anyone looking for a kind & considerate pets friend 🙂
Sophie - Paraparaumu Beach
Lynda has been with us for many years and we consider her to be part of the family. It takes a special person to take on the responsibility of a another families fur babies but we think our dog may love Lynda more than us lol 😂
Rain, hail or shine, Lynda has never let us down and I have no idea what we'd do with our her
Bria - Raumati South
Lynda comes highly recommended from us if you need a dog-walker and/or house sitter. She comes in twice a week to give our dogs Vika and Ragna their second daily walk and house-sits when we are away. She is honest and reliable and most importantly, the dogs love her to bits, as do we.

Krista came to visit our nursery with her cv looking for employment. Unfortunately we were not able to offer her employment, however on reading her cv I saw she had a great love of animals, especially dogs
. I called her back and offered her a challenge in helping me with my new Australian terrier pup, Stan !!!!. He needed some fine tuning which I was unable to do myself. He would not sit , come, and would jump
up at people and had an aggressive aversion to other dogs while out walking. This was no easy challenge, we talked and thought that 3x1 hour sessions would be a good start. She accepted the challenge. Nearly 3 months later he is a new boy and a real delight. It has been a work in progress and will continue to be until I feel confident he has passed the grade !!!. But the difference has been immense. Everyday now I can see his learning and listening skills have progressed 100%. It is amazing the bond that Krista has formed with Stan and Stan with her, he loves her to bits and is totally focused on her during his training walks and runs. She can pretty much teach him anything now and he listens. I told her she could make a career out of this, she has skills, love, and devotion. Don’t waste your time Krista, get into it and make other people happy and be able to enjoy their dogs as much as you have made me with Stan.
On her on volition she suggested to improve Stan's aggression to other dogs she would take him to our local park for education !!!. this has been working well, but we are working still on this. I have admired this young lass
. I am delighted to be able to add my comments as a recommendation for her to continue this great love and skill she has. I hope she branches out into other aspects of dog loving she certainly could in my estimation.
Go well buddy and thanks so much for turning my little Stan around at a crucial time in his life when I was too busy to be of assistance and keep helping me in the future. I am happy for anyone to ring me on 0274455346.
