About Freya

Hello!

I'm Freya, 28 years old and living in Salford. I have always been passionate about caring for animals and would be delilghted to help you with your pet care needs. Simply put, I love animals and I will always care for them as if they were my very own!

You can find out a bit more about my animal experience below:

  • I previously worked two summers at a dog boarding kennels, so I'm comfortable walking dogs of all shapes and sizes.
  • In my early twenties, I gained professional experience working as a Veterinary Care Assistant and Trainee Dog Groomer - hence I'm very comfortable around all animals, understanding their needs, and treating them each with the love and care they need! (And sometimes, getting a bit mucky!)
  • I grew up looking after my own small pets - including hamsters and gerbils. Later on, we got my dog Bella (Labrador) who is now a senior lady (14 years old!) and an absolute sweetheart. She means the world to me!
  • At university, I was a volunteer dog walker/house sitter on a regular basis for two clients alongside my studies.
  • I have also had experience cat-sitting for various clients including drop-in home visits.
  • For dog walking and pet sitting services, I am happy to try fit around your schedule. I have my own dog but please be assured I would always walk your dog 1:1 (i.e. on their own). I live in an apartment with lift access and there is a leafy park nearby for dog walks. 

    Please note for doggy day care or dog sitting at my flat, my own dog (Bella) also lives with me the majority of the time - so your dog would need to be okay with other dogs. I'm also happy to come for home visits for dog walking / cat visits etc. 

    Please feel free to drop me a message if you have any questions!

    Freya is an excellent sitter. Our cat adored her from the start. We can’t imagine we could find a better sitter as she has a genuine love for animals. Freya is very reliable and trustworthy and she looked after our cat really well. We’ll definitely use her services in the future. Highly recommended.
