We are absolutely thrilled with the service we receive from Shona at Aberdeen Pet Services, from the very first visit, I had a really good sense of how calming she would be for our highly strung but loving cavapoo. Before we met Shona I was extremely concerned about leaving Hamish with anyone, he is a nervous dog and enjoys being part of a family and being cuddled, we couldn’t even consider kennels for him and by luck we found the perfect solution. Reliable, friendly and extremely flexible, we wouldn’t consider anyone else. Hamish always comes home, happy and healthy, well exercised and well fed, what more could a dog need 😊
We are Raquel and David, owners of Dara, a 6 years old rescued podengo from Spain.
We are writing this testimonial because we want to highly recommend her services.
Shona has been taking care of Dara regularly for the last two years both when we go to work as well as when we go on holidays.
Dara suffers separation anxiety and being with Shona has helped our dog to be more independent as well as to better relate with other dogs. We’ve seen Shona in action; she treat dogs as if they were her dogs which allow us to go on holidays relaxed and knowing that our beloved is in good hands!
To conclude, we just want to say that Shona is our saviour as we needed to leave of dog without prior notice and she always accepted to help!
“We would highly recommend Shona for any house/pet sitting job. She took
care of our home and animals in Cyprus for 3 weeks in January 2015.
I found Shona to be kind, friendly and intelligent. She had been recommended
by good friends, so we were perfectly confident that all would be well.
Whilst she stayed here she met many of our friends and joined in local
We have seven cats in and around our home. She provided companionship and
care for all of them, paying special attention to our blind cat “Titch” who
needs a little extra care.
We returned to find the house tidy and most importantly for us, happy
animals, if a little fat!
We didn’t worry once while we were away, knowing Shona was taking care of
our family and can’t thank her enough for that peace of mind.
Thank you again Shona and best of luck with your new venture.”
“In Sept this year we got our new dog we had been registered with several rescues for some time then we found Micky the whippet he is about 7 months old .
He is a pre owned young dog he lacked confidence and may be had not really had the best start in life his condition still lacking some what .
We had a long awaited family holiday abroad planned already when we got him so almost straight away we looked at what to do with him when we went away.
We did not feel Kennels would be the best for him at all so I looked at home borders and we really looked in to it .
I had met a few when I met Shona I had a very good sense about her . She is a very warm person knowledgeable about dogs and kind using only positive re enforcement .
All the dogs in her care enjoy a lovely home atmosphere with the addition of the company of other dogs lots of walks and fun .
I dropped him off knowing he would have a great time.
Peace of mind when you are on hols is priceless indeed and that is what we had .
Shona sent me lovely photos of him with the other dogs having a great fun time When we picked up Micky and he was having a great time playing in her big enclosed garden with 2 friendly dogs .
I would totally recommended Aberdeen Pet Services for home bounding and dog walking ……very impressed !”

“Our gorgeous boy has visited Shona a few times and I couldn’t recommend her enough. Harvey is an excitable boy with lots of energy and we were worried he wouldn’t settle due to him being moved about a few times before we took him in. Within minutes he was running about the beautiful garden Shona has created and eagerly wanting to play. When Harvey’s there I know he’s secure, well looked after and gets all the belly rubs he needs as well as some extra training. He even gets to enjoy a swim in the nearby river. Harvey always enjoys his stay and is looking forward to his next holiday. Thanks Shona for making our boy feel welcome.” Julie-Ann
“Danny, our lively collie-spaniel crossbreed, has twice spent time being looking after by Shona in her home. He has loved his holidays with her and we have especially appreciated the personal attention he has received from her. Our boy is a rescue dog and can be nervy and anxious but Shona has coped very well with him and has ensured he has plenty of long walks to burn off his high energy levels and keep him nice and relaxed. Danny has found a new home-from-home and we are happy to leave him in Shona’s capable hands.”
