About Danu

Long term Housesits in Dorset (fees heavily discounted for long-term sits). Short term Housesits in Somerset, Wiltshire, Dorset, Devon, Gloucestershire I am a 41 year old woman, single without children. I work full time as a Leadership Trainer/Welfare Officer within two large law enforcement organisations. I have a great deal of experience staying in people's homes looking after their animals in the evening, morning and overnight. During the week I can accept sits in Dorset (within commute to Wool). At weekends (Friday eve to Monday morn) or during annual leave, I can travel further afield, to Somerset, Wiltshire, Dorset, Devon, Gloucestershire or further still. I am a responsible and reliable house and pet sitter with lots of experience with animals and minding homes and great references (I can email these to you). I love animals, and have a wonderful affinity with cats and dogs as well as smaller pets. I have had cats, dogs, rats, hamsters and gerbils around me all my life! I understand their communication very well. I have experience with anxious animals who relax with me very quickly. I have now gained experience with horses too but prefer them to be gentle ones! On a recent pet sit I even herded the neighbour's lambs! I will treat your home with great respect and will hugely value my mini retreat in your home. This supports my wanderlust and love of exploring the south west. There is so much world to see, and I am so lucky to be able to be a pet-sitter in this beautiful area where there is breathtaking scenery everywhere. I am often available at short notice and am very flexible with dates. I am particularly keen to secure some long-term sits and can offer a big discount for longer term bookings. Unless I have capacity to work from home during the period that I am looking after your home (not always possible), or am on annual leave, I *won't be at your home during office hours* but will be there in the mornings and early evening into overnight as well as weekends to keep it safe and secure and spend quality time with your animals. Some owners have a neighbour pop in during the day to let dogs out for a wee, knowing I will be back in the evening for walkies. I am based near Dorchester and love to explore Dorset. I am available to housesit overnight anywhere in Dorset within 40 mins commute to Wool, or further during weekends and holidays when I can be at yours with the animals all day and night. For longterm sits I can do any light errands required of me in your absence. I do not drink or smoke and eat a wholefood, plant-based diet, I love yoga, swimming and cycling. Do get in touch if you would like to ask me anything or run some dates by me.

Couldn’t have been happier with Danu looking after our cats. We had regular updates with pictures that was lovely. We felt we could leave without worrying which was a true tonic! Highly recommended and will definitely ask her to look after our boys again. Thanks Danu!

On another note, our home was left exactly as we left it - truly amazing! X

Highly recommend! Fantastic experience from start to end. Danu ensured she fully understood our pets needs and delivered much more. She kept us updated throughout and both boys clearly enjoyed being in their own home with someone experienced in meeting and responding to their needs. We have already booked again with Danu!!!
