Asta.... The sweetest Whippet you could ever wish to meet !

Travelling  internationally for work Amy required a reliable Pet and House Sitter for Asta while she was away and I couldn’t be luckier that Amy selected me to hang out with Asta. 

The most amazing companion, Asta just loved going for walks, playing ball and hanging out as my companion at many of Abrantes fabulous cafes.


What the Owners have said: 


I didn’t know if it was possible for Anthony to live up to the glowing reputation that I had read about in previous reviews.

But he more than exceeded my expectations!

He made time to visit me and Asta a couple of weeks before I went away, just to make sure everyone was at ease with the house sitting assignment.

He showed up exactly on time for the sit, and despite my anxiety around leaving my dog for the first time, I knew that she was definitely in good hands. Anthony ticks every box you could imagine for leaving your precious pet and home in someone else’s care: friendly, outgoing, caring, communicative, responsible, clean and confident.

It was great to receive photos almost every day of Asta, and I could tell she was feeling great and visiting her regular dog park each day. Anthony was house sitting for me here in Central Portugal during the intense heatwaves in mid July, and not once was there a complaint, just a sense of humour and understanding that this is how it is right now.

And when I got home after travelling for almost 24 hours, the house was completely spotless, and a generous bowl of fruit was waiting for me in the kitchen. I don’t know how anyone will live up to Anthony’s care the next time I have to leave town!

Thank you, Anthony, for all that you do!!
