About Andrea

Hi. My name is Andrea and I have been looking after dogs all my life really. Always had dogs in the house large and small. I have been looking after dogs for about 20 years in  total in both Yorkshire and  now moved down to Surrey. I treat all my boarders like part of the family and they receive lots of love and attention at all times. I can board just one dog at a time if that is your requirement. 

I have a lovely enclosed garden and a three bedroomed house that my boarders have access to at all times. There are lovely walks in the local parks and also lovely open countryside as you can see in my photos. I have included some photos of dogs I have boarded over this summer holidays. My home is located in a quiet neighbourhood in a road of terrace houses located near to good transport links. I have a good sized house for your dog to roam around freely and is very peaceful.

Rest assured your dog will have a lovely holiday too. I also provide photos of your dogs while you are away and regular updates. I can also provide videos of your doggy so you can see how much fun your doggy will have. 

I have also completed a course in Animal Care and Behaviour. So you can be assured that your doggy will be loved and looked after. This includes forms of separation anxiety and also how to control dogs with behavioral problems and aggresion towards other dogs. How dogs minds work and how they mark territory. 

I can administer oral medication for your dog if required. 

I look after your lovely doggies like part of the family. My service includes walking your doggies, the amount varies depending on what your dogs needs are. I adhere to your dogs needs and supply the same amount of walks and for the same duration as you would yourself. 

All dogs are kept on a leash at all times on the walks for their safety.

I only board one dog from the same household at any one time ensuring your doggy is well cared for and gets my full attention at all times.

I spend 24/7 with your doggy as this is my full time job and your dogs needs fit into my routine foremost. I make sure they are loved and cared for and are always with me at all times. 

My availability for pet sitting is good and my holidays fit around when i have a dog staying. 

My partner also lives in my home and if needs be if i need to pop to shop or have an emergency he is on hand to look after your doggy also. You can meet my partner on all meet and greets if you would like.

My dog boarders are allowed to sleep anywhere they would normally sleep at home.

If allowed in the bedroom they are also allowed to sleep there or if you prefer your doggy to sleep elsewhere just let me know and his/her normal sleeping pattern will be observed at all times.

My back garden is fully fenced and secure and the one gate is fully secure too. Your doggy is safe and secure in my garden and is not left unsupervised at all!

All dogs need to be fully up to date with vaccinations!

Andrea was great looking after Otis for the weekend! She kept us up to date with photos and her communication was brilliant.

Otis was a very happy boy there and we’ll definitely contact Andrea again 🐾 Thank you for looking after him so well.

Unfortunately we did not have a good experience with Andrea. Communication with her was not positive from the start. Most times we had to ask for Cosmo's news or some photos. We were promised a photo / news of Cosmo on Easter but we received none, Andrea went quiet for a whole day and a whole night and didn't respond to even one of our messages to reassure us that Cosmo was OK. We were almost begging to have news of Cosmo and we could see she had read our messages. We ended up spending a whole night awake to arrange for someone to pick Cosmo up the day later even though we didnt know if something had happened to him or to her. She responded the day later saying that she had handed Cosmo to her partner ( without our permission) because she hadn't felt well. We do not know her partner, not even his name or his telephone number. We can't explain why she could not simply let us know about this, it was our right to know.

Overall a very odd behaviour which we cannot explain given the previous positive reviews. It was ab experience that caused us considerable stress.

RESPONSE FROM SITTER: I took fantastic care of cosmo giving gabrielle video and text messages everyday via whatsapp. The day in question i was severely ill in bed with food poisoning and my partner who lives with me took fantastic care of cosmo. I only saw gabrielles message at 4.55am and responded immediately with a photo and video letting her know cosmo was safe and happy at 7.00am in the morning.

----

i had been sending regular photo, text, video updates to Gabriella throughout the week from the first day of the booking.However on Easter Sunday i had been taken very poorly with food poisoning and my partner who i live with who all my boarders owners can meet looked after cosmo and took him for a walk.I saw Gabriella messages about seeing if cosmo was okay in the early hours of the morning so i replied at a reasinable time of 7.00am in the morning to advise that everything was absolutely fine and my food poisoning had caused me not to check my phone during the previous day and took a photo of cosmo to reassure her. Gabrielle had already decided she was arranging for her housekeeper to pick up cosmo despite him being very settled and happy.
