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 looked after our dog, Kabwe, along with two guinea pigs and a snake! Hannah immediately bonded with Kabwe and is clearly a dog lover. She walked him everyday and sent us pictures, and she administered medication that he needs. Kabwe was given so much attention to the extent that he would follow Hannah around the house! He was in his element! Hannah also fed our other pets, and looked after the house. Kabwe was very happy when we returned and had clearly been cared for and loved during our 10 day absence. I highly recommend Hannah to anyone wanting a dog sitter - she is excellent.
