Hello, my name is Katie, I am 22 years old and I have recently moved to Cambridge with my 15-year-old cat. From a young age, I have lived on a farm and have been surrounded by animals, big, small, domestic and wild, (wildlife because my dad worked at a wildlife park and I would come along as much as possible to help) from this I have learnt a great deal about how to interact with animals. l find animals fascinating and always eager to learn more about them.
I have experience working on the farm (with farm animals), volunteering at a dog shelter and volunteering/working at a wildlife rehabilitation centre. I am currently studying dog training/behaviour and have plenty of time to spare. Because I am a pet owner, I completely understand how stressful it can be to leave your pets at home, I am passionate about giving the animals and owners a good and worry-less experience. I am willing to care for all animals and have had experience with many species, including ferrets, snakes, turtles, horses, donkeys, cats, dogs, a large variety of birds and rodents, etc.
What I offer-
Dog walking- I'll walk your dog for half an hour to an hour, but this can be discussed to suit you and your dog's needs. I can walk your dog twice a day and on some days three times a day. I can also give a little extra help such as feed your dog.
House visits- Are about half an hour where I'll feed them, play with them or simply keep them company. I can also clean the litter box, water the plants, etc. I can come up to two times a day, possibly more if you live close by. House visits do not include dog walking.
I also offer basic dog training if wanted.
I understand that all animals have different personalities and that they might need different approaches to caring for them. I am aware some pets have fears and/or medical conditions and would appreciate knowing beforehand, so I know what to look out for and give the best care I can. I would also like to know about how pets interact with other animals and/or people so that I can be on the lookout for any possible issues.
If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask.
Katie did a great job pet sitting my cat for a few days while I was away. My cat can be nervous of strangers but Katie was great with her and my cat was at ease with her straight away. Katie sent me a daily update and picture which was really reassuring and much appreciated!
Katie was awesome with our little Bill! Thank you for taking great care of him on his walks.
