Dog Walking
Rufferences is the best professional dog walking service I have experienced. Our dog, Blanca loves it and is waiting by the door for Grainne to pick her up.  It’s such a satisfaction for me as owner, knowing she gets her exercise.

Grainne at has been walking our black Labrador Cessna for the last 6 years. We love having Grainne take Cessna on her daily adventures and have the utmost confidence in how she handles her. I love the way Grainne is so kind to Cessna and her furry friends and she has great respect for all their little different personalities. Having Grainne has brought tremendous joy to our Cessna - when we mention Grainne’s name, she gets so excited!  Leaving one’s cherished furry friends in Grainne’s capable care is more than anyone could wish for.

Grainne has been walking our cocker spaniel Ralph for over 5 years now and we couldn’t be happier with the service. Ralph is an energetic dog who gets to enjoy long and varied walks - we are so jealous of the pictures Grainne sends of his adventures every day! Ralph is living his best life, sniffing around and socialising with other dogs.

Gráinne walks my dog Charlie at least 2 days a week.  He is always so excited to see her and cannot wait to leave with her, he comes home tired and happy. I can highly recommend Grainne’s dog walking services, Charlie loves her and I know he is well taken care of when he is with her. 

Grainne Heavey, Rathmines.

I wholeheartedly recommend Grainne as a dog-walker. She walks my dogs, Cookie and Tiki twice per week. The service is excellent, always punctual, kind to the dogs and flexible if changes to times are needed. A very helpful and friendly service.!

Dog Sitting

Grainne has been walking my two Maltese dogs three days a week for over two years. She is caring, careful and takes great interest in each of her dogs’ personalities, likes and dislikes etc. Poppy and Ruffles get very excited when they hear her car and can’t wait to join their pals.  Grainne also takes care of them when I am away: moving into the house and minding them day and night. It is so nice to know that they can stay in their own environment and not have to stress about changed circumstances. I am very grateful to Grainne – long may she continue!


Barbara Walsh, Donnybrook.

We have booked Grainne several times over the years to mind our dog, Luna and it is always fantastic.  Our dog can stay at home and be looked after here where she is most comfortable.  Grainne is extremely reliable and we know how happy and cared for Luna is while we’re away.  I always book in the dates the minute we have them so we don’t miss out.

Sarah Furlong, Ballsbridge.

Grainne has pet sat our dog, Dexter many times.  It’s an easy decision, she is super nice and we feel relaxed and confident that our dog and our home are well looked after.

Cat Sitting

I have been using Grainne as a cat minder for the past 6 years or so and she’s fantastic.  She gives plenty of her time and always sends lots of photos.  She will always do her best to accommodate me even at very short notice.  She’s totally reliable and I would have no hesitation in recommending her.

Rita Burke, Rathfarnham.

Grainne has been caring for my two cats since 2016 and I couldn’t be happier with the service she provides. She doesn’t simply drop by twice a day to feed my pets, she spends time interacting and playing with them and will send photos if I want. The other added benefit of having Grainne call to the house, is the security element; she will close curtains/blinds in the evening time and take in any post or packages left in the porch. I definitely have no difficulty in recommending Grainne to care for your much loved pets.

Claire Murphy, Rathgar

What is peace of mind?  It is Grainne looking after your cats while you are away.  Grainne has been looking after our cats for a number of years now.  She is a hundred percent reliable and trustworthy.  Our cats and Grainne have built up a great relationship and she sends me daily updates while we are away so I never have to worry and I know all is well with them. Thank you Grainne for always taking such good care of them, you are one in a million.

Ger & David Watt, Dartry

We have used Grainne’s cat minding services for over 6 years . She has looked after our very old cats and our little kittens. The flexibility has been amazing as sometimes she calls in twice a day and other times she has stayed in our house minding our kitties. We can highly recommend Grainne and our two little furry friends, Jay and Pippa adore her.
