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.

This was our first time using the service, we couldn’t have wished for more. Simon was extremely professional, courteous and friendly throughout giving us great confidence in the lead up to and during the week as he sent updates.

We returned home to a well looked after home and 2 very happy we’ll cater for dogs.

Thank you Simon

Simon was amazing from start to finish

Meticulous with his attention to detail in preparation for looking after our 2 dogs.

Simon left us feeling the most relaxed we’ve ever felt at the very start of our holiday by being there before we left the home unlike previous sitters when we have been unsure what time they arrived.

Wilma and Pablo loved Simon and we received lots of pupdates when we were away which we were grateful for - I cant recommend Simon highly enough, we will definately b shooing to use him again in the future

Thanks Simon
