Audrey and Pete were excellent with Benga. They walked her every day and made sure she was fed. Due to our reconstruction work, one of our builders had to return on the day we departed. Audrey and Pete were kind and said it did not bother them.

Five stars for Audrey and Pete. They are organized, punctual, kind, caring, interested and listen to your needs. Audrey kindly looked after my seedlings too, which was a big bonus for me. There was nothing negative to say about the experience and we would love to have them back again. ⁰DOGS and 2 CATS. . .

She was flexible with a late change in my plans.

Audrey and Pete looked after our 4 yr old Staffie for 11 days. They kept a little diary as to how often Ruby had been left and when which was a nice touch. The house was clean and tidy on our return and we could see how much Ruby adored them.

On May 21, 2022, a high-impact derecho hit Ottawa. Winds peaked at 160 kilometers per hour anpd over 300 power lines were downed. Power was not restored to their area for four days, but the Conroys (Audrey and Pete) rose to the challenge. They adeptly pivoted to preserve as much normalcy for their two tiny terrier charges as possible as well as to secure the home and the perishable items in the house. Notwithstanding the challenge of communication without any readily available source of power, updates were provided on the situation. Resourcefulness was combined with the Conroys usual conscientious attention to detail, and care and respect for the responsibilities of stewardship. Friends for many decades, I quickly learned that these qualities are the hallmarks of the Conroys. Impressive all round.
I would absolutely trust Audrey with my pet and house. I have known her for over 10 years and in that time I have come to admire her approach to life. She is caring, curious, and considerate. She is a very reliable and dependable person who will take care of your home and pet as if her own. I also know her dog who has a very happy life with Audrey and Pete. They always include her needs in their plans and I know they will follow your expectations around your pet's care.
