About Christabel

I am a reliable and experienced carer for all sorts of different animals! I have a horse and 3 cats, but I have years of experience caring for dogs, cats, rabbits, hamsters and other small mammals, horses, reptiles and fish!

Please see below for my doggie daycare options:

4-hour mini daycare- Your dog is collected from your home, I do a long 1.5-2 hour walk with a small group of well-socialized dogs, finishing up at my horse's yard in the countryside, where they have a further couple of hours to play in a safe, enclosed field. Dropped home happy and exhausted with both morning and afternoon walks covered. £20.

Full day care- Drop your dog off with me before you go to work. As above but we will return to my home in the afternoon where your dog will receive lots of fuss, cuddles, and company. Additional late afternoon/early evening walk and I can feed if required. You collect your dog whenever your day is complete. £25.

I've been walking dogs for over 10 years now, and I have NEVER let a client down, I couldn't bear to think of a dog being left home alone wondering why he wasn't being walked! I stick to small, manageable groups of friendly well-socialized dogs and walk dogs off lead wherever appropriate so they have a very decent runaround and a play! As pack animals, dogs really thrive on this time to interact and play with other dogs, and an added bonus your dog will have safe interaction with horses- many owners whose dogs used to misbehave around horses and riders now tell me happily they no longer have any problems at all!

I've also been house sitting for over 10 years, I'm trustworthy and obsessed with being neat and tidy, I will look after your home as if it is my own! Your pets will get plenty of cuddles and attention each day, as well as breakfast and dinner, and as many walks as they require. I also offer an optional 3 hour clean if you want to come home to an extra clean and sparkly home.

I love pet sitting because it allows me to spend time with animals, and to really make a difference in the lives of their owners. I know what a wrench it is having to leave your furry friends, whether it's for a holiday or just while you're at work, and it brings me joy to know that owners are relaxed and happy in the knowledge their beloved pets are happy and cared for.

I live in Lewes in a self-contained annex with lovely walking on the South Downs, if you want to leave your dog here with me for the day or for day and night boarding, he or she will receive wonderful care, tons of cuddles and the run of the annex :)

Please note that the given price for housesitting is based on care for 1-2 dogs, and any other smaller pets in the same household. If you have more than 2 dogs the price will go up accordingly.

I am also available to housesit solely for cats and a much-reduced rate.

Please note: I'm afraid that due to daily (dog-friendly) commitments in Lewes, I'm no longer able to take bookings for housesits that are outside Lewes and the immediate surrounding area. Thank you :)

Christabel recently looked after my two cats for the first time and I will definitely be using her again. Everything was really easy and Christabel took good care of them, sending me photos and updates so that I knew everything was okay. Thank you.

Christabel took great care of our cat Chloe while we were away, and we appreciated the updates to let us know all was going well. We would definitely like to book in with Christabel again next time, knowing Chloe will be well looked after and fussed over.
