About Leaf

Hello, my name is Leaf! :) 

I am a Zoology student at Anglia Ruskin University. Before this I studied Animal Management at collage, working hands on with a variety of animals. I have experience in handling, feeding and caring for cats, dogs, small mammals, livestock and reptiles.

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my animals (cats, dog, guinea pigs, rats, a gecko and a bearded dragon). I also like to volunteer down at dog shelters, when and where I can, working with a verity of breeds and behaviours.

I am available for as long as you need to pet sit and/or walk animals. As I am a student my hours are daily flexible (especially over the summer). I am willing to sit with pets that need the extra company and go on adventures with dogs and over training routines if needed. Although I have experience in dog training I am not a professional. 

I also have a love for nature and plants, so if you have any plants that need caring for I am able to do so. 

House sits include: 

  • Feeding and watering (as instructed). 
  • Cleaning after animals (litter trays, enclosures etc). 
  • Enrichment for animals that want it. 
  • Messages with daily updates and photos.
  • Walks/training (if needed). 
  • Basic grooming (where needed). 
  • Plant care (if needed). 
  • Leaf's services

    House Sitting
    Andrew, 2022-08-15

    I would absolutely recommend Leaf as a sitter.

    She communicated well with us before and during the sit and sent us regular updates throughout the sit.

    She managed the extra needs of the animals well.

    The house was left very tidy at the end of the sit.

    House Sitting

    Leaf managed our sit really well.

    She was responsive to our changing needs due to a change in expected weather and managed all the animals well through the heatwave.

    She communicated well and clearly and sent updates on my daughter’s fancy rats to her direct which really made her days.

    The house was left almost as though we had just popped out rather than had been away.

    She was confident and good with the animals.

    We would certainly have Leaf again.

    I speak English
    +5 years of experience
    Familiar with dog training techniques
    I have cared for a variety of pets most of my life. This includes cats, dogs, rats, guinea pigs, hamsters, geckos and bearded dragons. I’ve worked in a pet and reptile shop, and done voluntary work at my local dog shelter. I have a merit in animal management which has provided me with experience in handling and animal husbandry for reptiles (snakes and lizards), cats, dogs, small mammals some livestock (donkeys, goats, ducks, chickens) and some exotic mammals (skunks, meerkats, hedgehogs, etc). I can preform basic training and grooming, as well as basic health checks.
