My love of dogs began when a stray Border collie turned up at my workplace, I took her home, she threw up in my car, I cleaned it up. No one claimed her, I fell in love and called her ‘Lucy’. I did some agility training with Lucy and had so much fun I decided we had room for a second dog, so off to the pound I went looking for another collie. I come home with a skinny lurcher, it was love at first sight and we called her ‘Chance’. Both of these dogs have now passed away, but they left us wanting to help more rescue dogs. Then along came Sooty and Sweep!
I started pet sitting and dog walking about 5 years ago when I still lived in Ireland. I had a small number of regular customers and I truly enjoyed spending time with the animals I took care of. I have done house sits for up to two weeks duration and have received 5 star reviews from every sit completed.
As an experienced and caring dog walker I can ensure that your pet will receive the best care and love. During any walks or pet sitting service I provide, your pets happiness, safety and care is my priority and I strive to provide a service I would want my own dogs to receive (and believe me, I'm VERY fussy!). I promise to always have a patient and compassionate approach to taking care of your animals. I have completed the Ofqual regulated Level 3 Diploma in Canine Care, Behaviour and Welfare, the level 3 Companion Animal Cruelty Prevention Certificate, as well as a Canine CPR First Responder Course.I am also fully insured with Petplan Sanctuary so you can rest assured that your pets are in good hands.
