Reviews for Marina
I wanted to pass on my sincere thanks for Marina’s care of our dogs whilst we were away.
I got updates from her and she went above an beyond in ensuring they were ok in the heat. She truly forms a bond with her furry and non furry clients.
I couldn’t be more grateful and highly complimentary of Marina.
Marina was fabulous. It was good to have an update and photos for peace of mind. Importantly cats were in good humour on our return and not too angry with us. ??
BIG Thank you to Marina for looking after our two cats and rabbit. Its often stressful preparing for holidays but Marina totally put us at ease looking after our pets. Our furry friends were in wonderful hands and we loved getting the updates on how they were going. Maria even went out of the way and watered our garden on an unexpected warm day. I would highly recommend both Marina and Lonely Pets Club - thank you !
Marina was a wonderful carer for our cats. She made the effort to come and meet them beforehand and got to know all important details about them. While we were away she always kept us updated with how our cats are with detailed descriptions and pictures. No wonder she has so many great reviews.
We appreciated Marina giving us updates on how our dogs were doing particularly as one was under a rehab regime after cruciate surgery some weeks prior to our departure. The photos of the dogs were also well received.
She's a fantastic carer and will be using her again.
Marina was absolutely excellent.
I cant comment on Marina's appearance as I never see her face to face hence the no response to punctuality too. Marina has always been pleasant and approachable to talk to and she demonstrates a lot of care towards our cat, Nika. I always feel reassured that Nika is in good hands when we are away.
It was terrific to get sms messages from Marina while we were away. She was wonderful.
Miranda was fantastic, always keeping us updated on how our dog was. Our dog was happy when we got home. Our house and garden was all looked after. Miranda was awesome.
She is the best! She looked after my cat who had been sick beautifully and sent me updates every day. She even got him purring!
Marina goes above our expectations
Marina was amazing with our babies. First time we’ve ever come home from holidays and not found them to be stressed out.
Marina was wonderful at keeping me up to date on how Mishka was doing and reassuring me she was happy at home. It was so nice to be able to go away and leave Mishka in her own environment and know she was being looked after.
We are always happy with the care & communication Marina provides us with.
Marina was absolutely fabulous, I could not praise her too highly. Marina sent us updates on our cat James while we were away which was wonderful. James was so well cared for I'm not sure he wanted us to return! A big thank you to Marina for everything! - Janet
Hi there I wanted to leave a review for marina who services Vermont south. She is absutely wonderful. Not only does she take care of my pets, I feel so comfortable with her being in my home.
Great service and professionalism - good peace of mind when we go away
Marina never lets us down. She always keep us informed. And our cat loves her.
Marina is awesome, simply amazing, a wonderful person who we are delighted to trust with our pets and our house. I fully believe we could not be in better hands with anyone else.
Marina is a very important person in the life of Charlie and myself. She is always bright and cheerful and ready to take on extra walks if required. We look forward to her visit every week
Marina Butler has been caring for my Jack Russell x (Bronson) for a period approaching five years. Bronson and I met Marina quite by accident (while taking a walk at the local park), but we prefer to see it as a 'meant to be' moment.
Marina was walking some of her clients' pooches and I immediately noticed her great affinity for and knowledge of all things canine. I had been thinking of engaging the services of a pet sitter, so I decided to give Marina a go. Bronson at the time was newly-adopted from a shelter: a little overwhelmed by it all, and in particular unsure if he could trust other dogs.
With plenty of TLC at home and Marina's regular involvement, Bronson has blossomed into a confident and contented little dog who now loves to make new friends both human and canine. I genuinely believe that Marina deserves much of the credit for this, not to mention the peace of mind which comes from knowing my dog is in good hands when she is caring for him (she always sends me a photo of Bronson when she is caring for him, which I love).
Marina is one hundred percent trustworthy and reliable. In addition, she is my first 'go to' when I have queries about doggie related stuff. If Marina doesn't know, she is always able to refer me in the right direction as she is very well-connected within canine circles. In short, Marina is the real deal, and Bronson considers her to be one of his very best friends.
I have been using Lonely Pets Club for over 3 years now and they have all been great to deal with. Marina loves her walks with the boys and they equally love thier time with her and always come back with a massive smile.
Marina was enthusiastic, knowledgable, caring.
I did not meet Marina but had lots of communication from her and she was always friendly and knowledgeable.
Marina is fantastic. Xena loves her visits and always looks forward to her walks with her.
I've been using Lonely Pets Club now for 5 years and I love it. I have 2 demanding Burmese cats and it gives me great peace of mind that when I'm away, the cats are being loved and cared for. My local pet babysitter is Marina and she is reliable and honest but most importantly, she loves my cats and gives them lots of cuddles. Marina also keeps an eye on my house, collects my mail and brings in my rubbish bins. Highly recommend Lonely Pets Club!!
SHE IS EXCELLENT AT THIS. BONDED WITH OUR PETS VERY WELL HAD DEVELOPED A HIGH LEVEL OF UNDERSTANDING OF THEIR NEEDS
I can highly recommend Lonely Pets Club Mitcham. I needed someone to assist in giving my disabled sister's cat medication on a four day a week basis and then later on a daily basis. My sister and I could not have been more pleased with the girl from Lonely Pets Club Mitcham who helped us. A true professional who was always punctual, arrived with a smile and one hundred percent reliable. Her knowledge of animals and ability to calmly interact with them was outstanding. Nothing was ever too much and on many occasions she went beyond the call of duty to assist my sister and her cat. I consider it a privilege to have met her and had her in our lives.
Have been very happy with the service we've received from Lonely Pets Club, particularly Marina who we've been using for several years now to care for our many pets whenever we're away. We feel our animals & home are in good hands in her care and she has gone above & beyond for us on several occasions. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend her and we will certainly continue to be return clients.
Marina has looked after our pets several times while we've been on holiday. She is such a pet person, emailing us photos of our furbabies. It's so relaxing to know the animals are happy and looked after. Plus Marina brings the mail in, waters the plants and puts the bins out. Such great security to know someone's popping in and out all the time while we're away
Delighted with the service. Marina always does her utmost to meet my needs as a customer. The text messages and photos of Bronson that Marina forwards to me not only make me smile but put my mind at rest. It is good to know that my dog is being so well carred for when I am at work.
It was nice to get photos and feedback and be able to ring marina any time to see how everyone was. She was most pleasant and eager tto ensure all was well.
Marina is a wonderful carer and injects my cats with insulin as they are both diabetic (brother and sister). She always puts my mind at rest and texts me during the time I am away. I totally trusst her with their care.
Marina is fabulous and goes above and beyound in ensuring our fury kids are well looked after while we are away. They adore her too. When we return from being away, we are positive they miss her.They go to the front door looking for her!
When Marina has visited when we are home the dogs know she is there for them and we become invisible! LOL
Marina is part of Buddy's family. He loves her and she loves him. No signs of any stress or boredom behaviour since Marina has been caring for him. She clearly takes her work seriously but has lots of fun with him too, which for us is what it's all about.I had no hesitation in trusting Marina to come into my house while we were away. Marina has exceeded our expectations by miles. Marina should win everry day/week/month/year.
Marina was great, a real Cat Person. She convinced my cats (even the shy one) that she was a friend. She sent me photos of the cats playing and updated me by SMS each day she visited them. Ever since Marina came, my cats have been trying to get me to play with them all the time! Marina did a great job with the bins and a couple of extra tasks were no problem for her. She left all the empty cat food tins nicely sorted out, one less mess to come home to. Having Marina to care for the cats gave me a lot of peace of mind. I look forward to having her again. Thank you vvery much Marina.
I received regular messages and a few photos of the cats to show how happy they were. Marina went above and beyond to find where my chooks were escaping and repaired/fixed their escape route. Very impressed and very happy with her.
Marina is fantastic with Tiggs, she loves cats and lets me know via text that Tiggs is surviving without us, it is nice to know that the same person is looking after Tiggs who has looked after him 3 times before. It is also good to know the house is being visitedd and plants watered.
This was our longest trip since our cat came to live with us, but we knew she was in good hands. Marina kept us up to date with messages and photos as always.
Excellent as always.
We didn't meet up before our booking but Marina was very flexible about how to arrange key drop offs etc. She gave us regular updates on our kitties which was great. We would definitely love to book her again.
Marina was wonderful again and took very goodd care of my two cats.
Marina has looked after our two cats many times. As they are both diabetic she visits them twice a day and not only feeds them but injects them with insulin as well. We can go on a holiday and know our pets are safe with her. She also texts us regularly just to let us know how they are going.
I just love this service! We have two cats that absolutely love their visits. One cat used to love going to a cattery but the other fretted the entire time, refused to eat and last time they both became ill so I looked for an alternative, this was it. Marina is WONDERFUL with animals and with the added security that someone visits your house every day whilst away its great value.
Absolutely delighted with Marina and wouldn't hesitate to use her services again and reccommend her to others.
I found Marina to be an excellent carer. Just the type of person who we felt very comfortable in entrusting our family pet to.
Love marina. A wonderful human being x
Marina was an excellent carer for our cat Potch. Marina sent us regular updates via SMS and email while we were in overseas. We will definitely ask her to look after Potch again. Another happy customer!
We LOVE Marina! My kitties are always so happy when I get home and she is so lovely and friendly. II trust her implicitly!
This was the first time these two little dogs had a puppy walker. Their owner and I were a little concerned that one of them (Rosey) would not go to a stranger but Marina worked so well with Rosey that the required walk took place each time. I would fully recommend Marina to any of our friends. She was fantastic!
Very friendly, obvious passion for what she does and great knowledge/experience base. Our dog certainly warmed to her quickly, and appeared to have the same expectations from us as soon as we arrived back... definitely expected an evening walk!!
Marina is terrific. She is very caring and has gotten to know Nika very well. I feel happy knowing she will go that extra mile to ensure Nika is happy in our absence.
Marina was fantastic, I came home to find 2 very happy dogs.
Marina did a fantastic job and we are relieved that Marina will be coming again to take care of Misty in September. THank you!!
We totally trust our pets with Marina. As they are diabetic she goes that extra mile and injects them with insulin twice a day. She also texts me and lets me know all is OK which is great. I would thoroughly recommend her services and have done so to friends.
Marina is always excellent!
Marina is a superb carer, whom we would recommend to anyone seeking the highest quality home pet care.She gave more than the allotted 30 mins on several occasions because of unforeseen difficulties with the security of our dogs, which are not very outgoing, but Marina won them over completely, such is her rapport with and genuinne care for animals.
Marina obviously has a genuine affection for the animals she cares for and thhis showed through.
Marina was wonderful with Tilly. It was nice to come home to her note saying that everything had gone well while we were away. I was worried Tilly would be scared with a stranger in the house but she got in so well with Marina and I think really enjoyed having someone to play with and giviing her attention.
Jessica was excellent, we will definitely be booking again for her too care for our animals.
Once again my pusskits are carefree and happy even though I was away for several days (usually enough to make Sweetie fret and become ill). I am so happy with the level of care that I'm already planning my next holiday. Thanks very much to Marina, I could not be happier.
One of my dogs has difficulty with new authority figures. Marina was so knowledgeable, understanding AND persistent. I also loved her positive approach annd her sense of humour.
We were delighted to find our dog in beautiful condition upon our return, and are most grateful to Marina for caring for her so well. Congratulations and thanks to thhe Lonely Pets Club!
Marina was excellent looking after our cats and accepting their little oddities! Especially appreciated tthe daily texts.
Marina has always been prompt when replying to my booking annd is reliable.
Marina looks after our cats well, especially the scatty one who is used to going out so must be bouncing off the walls when Marina comes round! This isn't Marina's first booking with us so I haven't marked punctuality or presentation. Marina always lets me know how the cats are doing, sometimes sends photos and leaves me a note which I alwaays appreciate.
Marina sent us a couple of text messages and a couple of photos (MMS) of Nikita while we were away. She also left us a little note just to say all went well which we received on return to home. These little services are highly appreciated and make a big difference in how we feel abouut leaving Nikita.
Marina has been looking after Nikita for a while now and we've always foundd her excellent.
I trust Marina with Nikita (our cat) and I really appreciate Marina's professionalism. She is the only carer who has sent me text messages and photos of Nikita while I'm away. Marina also leaves a note for us on our return, which is also highhly appreciated.
Marina texted me how my pet was , while we where away, even sent me a photo, which was a lovely touch, I can't speak hhighly enough of Marina.
Hi...everything was perfect, thank you, and it's SO good to know I can go out for a day and get Abby so well looked after...Marina is very good, making contact beforehand and leaving me a note before she finally leaves...I know Abby didn't miss a beat, and in fact got TWO walks!! Will of course pass you on to friends! See you next tiime, too...cheers.
Abby remembered who Marina was when I told her M was coming to mind her....apparently Abby certainly nearly killed M on arrival....I'm so happy to have this arrangement when I can't be home....very satisfactory, thank you.... I'll be back...I don't go out/away much these days, but that may change! cheers and many thanks for your wwonderful service.
Thank you Marina, our little family have been well cared for, we would like you to pencil us in for next Christmas around the same time, your care and atttention were 1st class.
Hello I just wanted to thank Lonely Pets Club and especially Marina for the amazing job she did in looking after our boy Buddy. Marina understood how anxious I was and took the time to text me photos and funny stories about her time with Buddy. This put my mind at ease. Thank you Marina I cannot recommend you highly enough. PS...Buddy really misses you xxxx
Marina did a fantastic job! We wwill call on her again.
Marina was great and kept us up to date with pictures and sms so we knew he was being cared ffor and a happy kitten.
Fantastic communication, our dog Gus enjoyed his visits. We received daily texts and photos of our happy dog, greatly appreciated. Marina was courteoous and friendly.
I was very happy with the whole process to do with Marina and her care of my dog. As this was the first time I have left Brodie at home, I was quite apprehensive about it all. However will not hesitate to have your service and Marina provide caare for my boy. thanks
Marina went out of her way to meet with our cats prior to starting to care for them. She engaged well with all of them, which has never happened with previous carers, and I was extremely pleased by this. This also meant that the cats coped better with the separation from us than theey had previously.
Marina was professional and easy to talk too. She seems to love her job which is important. I would recommend her to anyone I knew. I knew my animals were in good hands and would be well looked after, as I had confidence in Marina. I will definitely have no hesitation to use Mariina again in the future.
Marina did a wonderful job & my cats seemed very happy when i returned. She was very friendly and helped me extend my days when i got tied up in Hawaii. Nothing was a problem and she left a lovely note ffor my arrival.
Marina was terrific with Darcy and Liza, especially coping with Liza's fear of strangers. Also Marina texted me each time she visited my dogs to tell me how the visit went, which I really appreciated. I will be using LPC again, as will be travelling a lot over the next 12 months and I know I can trust you to keep my pets safe and hhappy. Thanks Marina!
