About Ria

Hi! My name is Ria.

🐶 Since I was a little girl, we've always had a dog at home - Nero and Aaron. Many of my family members back in Slovakia also have dogs - I always manage to get some pets and cuddles in when visiting. I have a lot of experience with different breeds of dogs, but mainly with large dogs such as German Shepherds. 

My love for dogs goes beyond the usual pet care - I always try to make a pet feel like they're part of the family by including a lot of playtime, stimulating activities and of course cuddles 🐶.

In recent years, I also fell in love with cats as my partner and his family have multiple kitties - Auroa, Midnight and Lunar - all of which I had the chance to take care of when they went on holiday. I'm not sure who had a better time - me with the kitties or the family on holiday?

When it comes to work, I am reliable, responsible and highly organised, ensuring excellent service!

Being a student means I can be flexible and fit yours and your pet's schedule. I will always take the time to understand yours and your pet's needs to ensure they have an amazing stay with me!

I provide the following services:

- Dog walking: on or off leash depending on the dog's training and your preference 

- Drop-in visit: 1 or 2 visits a day depending on your pet's needs. Normally 30 minutes, but can be up to 1 hour if required (additional charge). Includes feeding, play time and walk

- Day care: at your place with walks included. Please book this as House Sitting service *

- Overnight stay/house sitting at your place **

- Any additional services may be provided after discussion if required. ***

I will send regular updates/photos during your pet's stay so you can go about your day or enjoy your holiday worry-free, and I'll make sure your pet feels safe, happy and at home, and is taken care of like you would do it yourself.

All I ask is that each pet is fully vaccinated and that we meet beforehand to ensure everyone is happy with the arrangements and that myself and the floofs get along :)

I'm excited to getting to know you and your pet!

Ria :)

Ria was brilliant with my elderly cat Sophie, provided me with lots of pictures whilst I was away, and was able to give her the necessary medication during the week. I came home to a very relaxed and happy cat.

Ria took excellent care of our two cats while we were away for the weekend, making sure they had their food, medication and fresh litter every day, plus some nice strokes and photos for us! Our cats have health issues so have to be given a pill directly every day, and it was a great comfort to know that Ria could do this, even on our first booking when the cats don’t know her well yet. Thanks Ria!
