Reliable, flexible & loving dog care in Bristol.
I've always been a huge animal lover, begging my mum for a cat from the age of 5. It thankfully worked and we had Sophie the cat for 22 years! I also had two dogs, Sasha & Coco for 14 years but sadly they're no longer with us. Sasha was a young rescue dog who needed quite a bit of training and Coco was raised from being a (ridiculously cute) new-born puppy.
I have pet-sat for many dogs and cats over the years and love spending time with so many different personalities! Back when I lived in London, I had animals which I looked after regularly there, usually when their owners were on holiday. Having moved to Bristol last year, I'm really missing having them around so am looking for new pets who are in need of some company & love!
I live with my partner (who's an architect) and we're both in our 30's. I work from home as a freelance writer and script editor, so am flexible and will be around the house and with your pets all day. I don’t have a practical outdoor space but I do live a couple of minutes walk from the lovely St Andrew's park and I go walking/running on Clifton Downs regularly (photos below), so they will get plenty of walks and time outdoors. (Unless they're at an age where they prefer gentle walks and lots of cuddles on the sofa, of course). At home they will be allowed the run of our spacious flat and will sleep in our bedroom.
We're completely flexible and whatever makes your pet happiest whilst they're away from home, works for us too. I know how difficult it can be to leave your pet with someone else (I hated doing it!) and so I will happily talk on the phone/meet to ease any worries you might have. I can also provide references on request.
Very caring and flexible sitter
I was very very happy with Danielle and would thoroughly recommend her as a dogsitter. She took great care of Rambo and the location (next to a park) is an added bonus.
I've had to give oral medication to numerous cats and dogs (including a 16-year-old chihuahua with epilepsy and a cat who just did not want to take it!) and I can confidently say I have mastered the skill! I have taken care of both young animals who are full of energy and older pets who like a quiet, easy life.
