My passion is animals. I have a degree in Zoology from the University of Nottingham which has led me to pursue a career in animal and nature education. I'm currently the education officer for an environmental centre in Uxbridge, but over the winter we are less busy so I'm looking to fill my days off by going back to animal care. (Because I'm a teacher I am DBS/CRB checked).
I'm unfortunately not allowed pets of my own because I rent and I really miss having that quality time with my parent's dog and cat. So I'm looking to offer my services as a dog walker and pet sitter to look after your special ones. I have experience caring for cats, dogs and some exotic pets like chinchillas, snakes, reptiles. I also have a lot of experience looking after chickens so I'm up for the challenge of the more unusual pets.
I usually work Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 9-5 but it does vary from week to week. I would be able to check in on your pets before and after work and spend some time with them in the evenings when I do work. I can offer local dog walks around your area of any length and time, and I also have a car so I can transport your dog to nature reserves for longer walks if they need a lot of exercise (my parents have a collie cross so I'm very used to energetic long walks with lots of ball throwing).
For pets that don't need walks, I am happy to pop in and fill up food and water bowls, clean litter trays and cages, and spend some quality time for cuddles and playtime.
The unavailability on my calendar is when I can't offer any sitting services. Otherwise, I might be working during the day time but if I fit dog walks or sitting services around it I will try.
We’re so glad we’ve found Emily! She’s great with our pooch and we are planning to use her on a weekly basis!
Emily is a really lovely person who is kind, conscientious and trustworthy. I will definitely be booking her again to stay in my home and look after Rocky! Thanks Emily xxx
I have a degree in Zoology and have worked in wildlife rescue centres and education centres where animal care was part of my responsibilities. I've looked after animals such as snakes, reptiles, insects, rabbit and chickens.
