Hello, my name is Jemma. My passion is my pets and always has been, I have 14 resident guinea pigs, a Cocker spaniel and 2 ponies!

I have a HNC qualification in Animal Care and am now studying for a degree in Animal Science.

Couldn't be happier with Jemma's cat sitting service! My two kitties were not just in good hands while I was away but Jemma also kept me in the loop with photos and messages. Would 100% recommend!

Super impressed with Jemma and her set up at home. My piggie was taken excellent care of and it was really nice of Jemma to send pictures and keep me updated throughout her stay. I would 100% recommend The Guinea Pig Shed :)

I was so happy to leave my precious piggies with Jemma. Sid and Stan are real drama queens and they just waddled off ignoring us ðŸ¤£ place is spotless and I felt so at ease knowing they would be safe, well fed and pampered. I would have no hesitation leaving them there again and can't recommend the Guinea Shed enough. Thanks Jemma xx

Our guinea pigs were very well taken care off and returned home happy and healthy. Jemma also sent pictures and video regularly so I didn't have to worry or miss my piggies too much. Very good communication throughout as well.

Our piggies received 5 star service from Jemma.
Would highly recommend her to anyone wishing their guinea pigs looked after.
Jemma has a great set up and is a lovely person who went above and beyond.
(She sent updates and photos which we really appreciated.)

So impressed with Jemma and the excellent care she gave our two guinea pigs. Our pigs loved their stay at the Guinea Pig Shed, their accommodation was clean and spacious and they even got to play on the lawn. We loved the photos Jemma sent throughout their stay and the advice she gave us was really helpful. I would definitely recommend the Guinea Pig Shed.

Our two guinea pigs have just had the best 2 weeks at The Guinea Shed. Jemma looked after them so well. She took care to understand their habits, likes and dislikes before they went to stay with her. She sent us regular updates with photos while they were with her and so we felt very reassured. They are going to stay again in a couple of weeks. I would thoroughly recommend Jemma and The Guinea Shed.

I would definitely recommend Jemma and The Guinea Shed. It is obvious that Jemma has a genuine love for guinea pigs and I felt confident that our two were really well looked after. The accommodation was clean and spacious. Jemma was warm and friendly and lovely with my children too.

Jemma came to my home to do pop in visits for my 4 rabbits while I was away. She sent me daily pictures and videos and reassured me that they were all doing well, which meant I could relax knowing they were being well looked after. She managed to get some lovely photos and I could tell she has taken time to sit with and bond with each animal. I would 100% recommended Jemma and would ask her to look after my fluffle of rabbits anytime.
From Sammy on
Our guinea pigs couldn't come home happier or healthier after their stays at The Guinea Shed. Jemma is experienced, knowledgeable and loves her guinea pigs. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone.
From Diana on
I definitely recommend Jemma! I had to away for a while and Jemma was very friendly and helpful. It was really convenient that my piggies were picked up and the delivered back to me on my arrival since I live in Edinburgh and I couldn't leave home due to quarantine.
Jemma also sent me loads of pictures regularly and my piggies were happy living in a lovely place while I was away.
Thanks so much !
