I have just finished my Wildlife Conservation BSc degree and I am really passionate about wildlife in general, but I am especially fond of canines. Unfortunately I am not able to have my own pets currently, but I grew up with chickens, cats and my own dog Smokey (a collie x standard poodle), so I am really missing animal contact.
I have a wide range of experience working with pets, but especially dogs. This includes past work at a kennels and cattery, voluntary dog walking for the RSPCA, 2 weeks voluntary work with Animal Aid in India (a rescue charity for street animals), 6 months of daily private dog walking for 3 dogs (one of which had aggression problems), and 6 months internship at the Wolf Science Center in Austria (an international research center focusing on cooperative canine behaviour between wolves and dogs) where responsibilities included feeding and medication of wolves and dogs, as well as walking and basic training with the dogs. I also trained my own dog, including in agility.
I would love to walk dogs regularly around the Lewes area and would be happy to take dogs on longer walks too around the Downs, etc. I would also be happy to do home visits and stays, and could also potentially offer pet sitting in my own home in the countryside. I also have a car so I would be able to access more remote locations.
Hannah is flexible and helpful. She has taken great care of my puppy Bertie, and has a lovely manner with him. She is reliable and punctual.
Hannah has been our house sitter, whilst taking care of our two cats, and did an amazing job from all points of view. We were kept updated with pictures, texts and calls - we were able to contact her any time we needed. We left complicated instructions to read and Hannah was able to follow accurately. Our pets received lots of attention, affection and extra care: our adult cat has a very sensitive personality, was on a strict diet, and needed lots of cuddles, while our kitten was on oral medication, needed lots of interaction and to be fed regularly. Also, our house was kept super-clean. We would be very happy to ask Hannah to take care of our house and our pets again in the future, and would recommend her to anybody who needs someone reliable, caring and trustworthy.
