I am a freelance illustrator and calligrapher therefore my schedule is therefore quite flexible and I work from home a lot!
I have experience in walking various breeds, sizes and ages of dogs and I regularly petsit in people's homes to look after the animals while their owners are away.
I live in Hanover now which allows me to take dogs for walks in the Level and Queens Park, but the seafront and Preston Park are not far off either (depending on how much walking your doggo is willing to do :-)).
As a photography student I have worked on a project about a rescue shelter for bunnies, and am currently working on a long-term project about an endangered breed of cows (Casta) in the south of France. All these experiences helped me grow emotionally attached to all kinds of pets, and I am much more attentive to their needs. In particular, I have learned how to understand that, much like humans, animals also experience an array of moods and require respect when it comes to their personal space. I feel genuinely happy when I get to interact with animals and I believe my positive energy transmits onto the pets in a magical way.
Perhaps you would be interested in a drawing or an illustration of your furry friend - we can discuss. :)
I am always happy to meet up in person before we arrange pet sitting so that we can get to know each other and make sure that everyone is happy. See you soon!
Jola was brilliant - very quick to reply to messages, and kindly came round a couple of days before to meet us and check all the details. She seemed to get on great with Bruce and took him for a couple of lovely long walks. We won’t hesitate to use her again in future!
It was the first time we were leaving our dog for a few days and Jola couldn’t have been more reassuring! She came to meet Bear a few days before we were leaving and they got on instantly! I could tell Jola was a natural with dogs and a lovely trustworthy person. While we were away Jola kept sending texts and photos of their errands. She was super easy to communicate with and was very flexible when we asked to add a day at the last minute. I felt very comfortable having her stay in our house which was pristine when we got back. I’ll definitely book Jola again in the future and couldn’t recommend her more!
