About Alison

I have a higher national diploma in animal care. I graduated from this course in June 2022 with a grade A. I have owned a German Shepherd as well as rabbits, budgies, fish and a hamster, and now have a Springer Spaniel. I have worked in kennels and a cattery and have worked with cows, sheep, horses, rabbits, guinea pigs, ferrets, mice, rats, hamsters, gerbils and hens. I am trained in all husbandry requirements for small furries too.

This is my full time job which I love. This means I can spend more time with your pet especially if house sitting as I won't need to leave them to go to work etc. I can do things around the house like water plants nad bring in the mail. I can stay at your house full time, morning, afternoon and overnight. I am hoping to move in the near future, so I should be able to accommodate taking animals to my own home then.

I have a large home with a large fenced garden. I have an 18 month old springer spaniel who is very friendly and will keep your dog company. I also have lots of places on my doorstep to go walking. There are fields and woodland walks within walking distance from my home. I am also able to travel and take dogs walks nearer their own home. I take a maximum of two dogs at a time on a walk to ensure safety and a better bond.

I am currently able to offer drop in services and house sitting.

Alison was fantastic with my two cats! Very communicative, and spent time with them each day my partner and I were away.

She sent photos and messages every day which really helped with peace of mind. Super qualified and helpful too. Highly recommended for any petsitting needs. Will be booking again!
