TESTIMONIALS

Della is possibly our best discovery ever. We now relax and look forward to going away from home and leaving our very special dogs in her super safe and fun loving pair of hands. Della knows a thing or two about dogs and can balance their individual special needs accordingly. The best thing about Della is that she truly cares about her work and she gives 100% to every assignment.
Not only does she care for your pets but she offers care and security for your home. She watered plants, (she even pruned ours!), let repair men in, and takes full responsibility for everyday tasks. She leaves the house cleaner than she found it.
We have just returned from New York after just having had to say goodbye to Milo aged 12. Della had thought of ways to look after her litter mate Paddy who had never been apart from her sister and who is, herself, very slow and arthritic whilst making sure our younger, naughtier JJ was well exercised and had tremendous fun.
She sent videos of walks, games and cuddles, and we came back to photos and flowers as a tribute to Milo.
She is 100% reliable, trustworthy, goes the extra mile and is bags of fun. A truly special and lovely person.
Thank you from Jac, Mill, Paddy and JJ.

I wanted to tell you how amazing you have been to both Cooper and I and how I very much appreciate all your help in looking after the boy- THANK YOU!!!!!! We are going to miss you terribly!!! However, we are not leaving until mid January, so you still have time for long walks and cuddles, but I did want you to know. On the positive, you now have a place to come and visit!!!

I have known Della for many years and my observations of her work is that she has always been extremely professional, diligent, extremely customer focussed (both internally and external) and friendly.
I have no hesitation in recommending her enthusiastic approach to her work, and her exceptional organisational skills. She is a real pleasure to be around and would be an asset to any team.

To all my Sussex friends with doggies, I want to do a massive shout out to Della Lamden of Doggies & Moggies who looked after Jilly and Tipsy when we were away. It was so nice knowing she was giving them so much love and attention as well as keeping the house safe (ooh and extremely tidy!)
Della is a beautiful and generous to a fault person who I highly recommend. Much better value than kennels and so much nicer for Jilly and Tipsy.

Della recently looked after our young dog, Mac, in our home for ten days while we were on holiday. It’s the first time we had left Mac on his own for any length of time and were naturally anxious about it. Mac can be a tricky little fella sometimes, but Della did such a superb job of looking after him, giving him lots of love and making his welfare top of her agenda the whole time. We were kept updated and reassured with photographs every day, and it was lovely to see our boy so obviously happy and content in Della’s company. He certainly missed her for a long time after she’d gone, and we missed her too; because Della is not only a first class pet sitter, but a first class lovely lady, whom we will stay in touch with in the future. If you want your pets cared for at the highest standard, look no further than the lovely Della Ferrari Lamden.

Della stayed at our house for a week to look after our big beautiful girl Beau, she initially came to meet Beau and I knew instantly that my beloved pet would be well cared for due to her kindness and passion for animals. Della not only looked after our dog and home but reassured me with updates pictures and videos of their adventures together. Highly recommend this lady and will definitely be booking in for our next trip.

Della has looked after my dog, chickens, and guinea-pigs for the last 3 years and the house is always tidier than I leave it! Last week she was pet-sitting whilst I was skiing, and a tree fell down, taking out the power for 5 days, but she sorted getting us reconnected, and the tree removed from across the driveway.
Finally, my dog is always so excited to see her - there is nothing they would not do for each other! I have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone.

Amazing photos of Sally!! They’ve really captured her and show how really happy she is with Della!
We cannot speak highly enough of Della and how well she looks after our dog. We would recommend her without hesitation. In fact, we’ve even asked her to our wedding to make Sally’s day!

Della is brilliant! Lovely to have her stay at our house with our dog knowing that he didn’t have to leave his home whilst we were away. Della was available at quite short notice for 4 days. It was reassuring that Della was with Tye day and night, took him for walks etc as normal and nice to know he was in such good, caring hands!
Would highly recommend Della and will definitely use her again :) 5 star rated!! :)

We have just had a wonderful holiday in the USA, made much more enjoyable because we didn’t have to worry about Frank and Millie, our miniature poodles. Della cared for them in our home, sending us regular photos to show how much fun they were having. Daily off-lead walks, and maintaining their usual routine, meant that they were happy in our absence and we did not worry about them. We really appreciated returning home to a clean, tidy house and two very waggy tails. We are very happy to highly recommend Della’s ‘Doggies and Moggies’ services and will certainly be employing her again.

Della looked after my house and pets brilliantly. I went on holiday feeling very secure, knowing she would deal with anything that came up. She had to look after chickens, a cat, a tortoise, a hamster and three dogs. She is returning very soon to do it all again for me, although this time there will be puppies to look after too.

I have known Della for over 5 years and find her to be entirely trustworthy. She has been a weekend house and dog sitter for me on a number of occasions. I would not hesitate to recommend her.

Della is an amazing beautiful lady. We’ve only ever left our dog with my mum but as we were all going away together I needed to find someone I could trust to look after her whilst we were away. Della was our lady, Izzy was so well looked after and loved. We will recommend her to everyone and will be certain to reach out to her the next time we are going away. Thank you Della x

We just want to say after returning from holiday, how impressed we are on the care and love that Della Ferrari Lamden from Doggies and Moggies pet sitting services gave to Harry and Archie whilst we were away. She didn’t just walk them but gave them the attention they are used to. Our house was spotless too. We shall definitely be using her again as gave us peace of mind that the boys were looked after. You are one in a million Della !!!!!
Best wishes Sue and Graham plus of course Harry and Archie too !

To mark Della as 5/5 somehow doesn’t do the service she provides justice. We recently had a two week holiday in the USA and we are so glad we found Della to look after our two Cairn Terriers, her love of dogs is immediately obvious and means you can go away in absolute confidence that they are in the best hands possible. During the holiday we got regular photos and updates and it was so reassuring to see that it was like a holiday for our babies as well, all within the comfort of their own home.

Della also managed to squeeze in some behavioural work with our boy Louie who now doesn’t bark at every advert with a dog in, fantastic!!! Probably the best thing we can say about Della is that we feel we now have a new friend to keep in touch with and the dogs absolutely love her. If you are considering using a pet sitting service we cannot recommend Della more highly.
