About Simon

I’m Simon. I’m a writer and script reader and working from home over the years I ended up becoming a person people kept asking to look after their various cats and dogs (the largest being a Dalmatian and the smallest a post-minor op kitten) and I found I really enjoyed it. I’ve just done a lovely stint of dog sitting on the south coast in Portsmouth and then Worthing and whilst still happy to go further afield I would also like to do some sitting closer to home. I offer house sitting looking after dogs and/or cats if you are away overnight or away or on holiday for two weeks or possibly longer.

Having a happy well fed well walked dog is very satisfying. My family has had dogs for thirty years and I’m always looking after them. I’m a fan of Yorkie-tons who are the most sweet natured and playful family dogs. I’m also a cat lover especially of Calicos who seem especially spirited and naughty.

I will follow your instructions to the letter but within that I will spoil them rotten while you are away to have them happy in their own environment. I have never smoked and do not drink bar the very occasional beer a few times a year. I have a basic DBS check as of last October and as someone new to the site can provide contact with referees. I’m very quiet and my idea of a good evening is a string of documentaries on BBC4 or a good film of any vintage or a Gogglebox double bill on E4.

Simon looked after our fur baby Milo recently and I have been extremely happy with the experience. Prior to the sit, communication with Simon was always prompt and clear. We met prior to the sit and Simon made sure he got as much information as possible about Milo. It was clear he was used to looking after dogs by the questions he asked about Milo - what type of doggy personality he has and about his routines etc. It impressed me that when we first met Simon didn't force himself on Milo, he let him take his time to get used to him and gain confidence. Quite often I feel nervous about leaving Milo but with Simon I felt quite happy leaving him. On our return from holiday we found a happy dog and the house was left clean and tidy. I would have no hesitation in recommending Simon and will be booking my next dates in soon!

Simon is a pleasant and quiet man who took care of our very big girl. We have returned to a very happy healthy girl who possibly got her own way far too often. This is not a complaint it means she settled well with Simon even checking his bedroom last night to see where he had gone. That's a compliment from our girl in deed. I have no problem recommending Simon at all and we will definatley be asking back next time we require our girl to be looked after. Simon did a great job. Thanks Simon
