Hello! My name is Jo. I work from home as a freelance tour organiser for stand-up comedians which means your furry friends won't be short of company - they'll want some time to themselves if anything!
I previously worked in social care (children's services) so I have DBS police check certificate and several references from previous pet/house sits available on request.
I have looked after dogs, cats, pigs, chickens, rabbits and fish. Cats almost always bring me "gifts" of rats, mice and shrews (even if it's out of character!) and I choose to believe there is no greater endorsement from the feline world. Once I looked after six cats in tandem with a six month old puppy; it was pandemonium but very funny so please throw what you will at me!
I am very conscientious and reliable which has allowed me to grow my career as a freelancer. I do not let people down at the last minute and I treat everything I do with care and respect. Happy to accommodate quirks and ensure their routines are undisturbed - I am a good player and a good cuddler if that's their vibe but also happy to just to have a chat if they are less tactile.
I really enjoy spending time with dogs and walking, but my personality might be seen as more cat-like! I enjoy spending time alone.
My life motto is to be upfront so if I think I am not suitable (for example, if you have 50 dogs and 12 horses), I will say. If I make a mistake, I will say. But ultimately I am a really respectful person and will take the security of your home and pets very seriously by following all instructions and not playing silly beggars. I just think it makes it less stressful for all of us!
I like swimming in the North Sea!
Any questions welcome!
Jo look after our puppy making 2 visits during the day.
She communicated well on first contact and I was easily able to arrange a meet up.
She arrived on time to meet us and was very friendly and seemed good with our pup. Who seemed to like her straight away!
She reported back after each visit which was most appreciated. The house was and Cleo were all as we'd expect on returning home and we'd definitely trust her for future visits.
