Aoife is a fantastic dog sitter and dog walker. She was available on short notice, and is friendly, has clear communication, and clearly loves dogs. She took our dog for long walks/runs and he came back tired and happy. When our dog Basil sees Aoife, he’s smiley and happy and clearly loves his time with her. I highly recommend Aoife as a dog walker and dog sitter.
