About Robyn

I've grown up with all kinds of animals and currently have 2 beautiful cats and a very complex little terrier.

I have owned all kinds of rodents, cats and dogs over the years and in the last three years have also been volunteering at Brinsley Animal rescue caring for a range of farm animals.

I currently work full time for a large environmental charity and I do this on the side - mostly because I love animals!

As mentioned above my complex Patterdale Terrier, Axel, has been a challenge since bought him home! He's reactive at times and almost totally blind, this has led to me learning and researching lots of techniques to support him, believe this makes me very understanding of the complex needs of dogs.

I have also owned feral cats in the past and rehomed lots of small animals (rabbits, hamsters, guinea pigs & hens)! 

I am currently undertaking a
qualification in canine behaviour and practice positive training methods only.

I have a clean driving license and
I'm happy to drive to your home and walk your dog locally or feed your cats. 

I will follow any rules or requirements you request, let you know when visit, send photo updates and an update when I leave.

Happy to feed your pet, clean up any messes and accommodate your needs, feel free to discuss any specific requirements.

Please note: I do work full time from home and will be fitting walks/visits in early AM, lunch and PM - please contact to discuss.

Robyn has been looking after my cats for just under a year. in that time she has become part of our family. The cats took to her straight away (cats are very intuitive) and so did we.

Robyn goes above and beyond what anyone could hope for in a sitter. she sends updates and pictures and always makes sure she sees both of them on each visit.

this time I had an extra task for her ... to medicate my 15 year old girl who has recently been diagnosed with arthritic joints and very high blood pressure.

I had no doubts in Robyn's ability to take this in her stride. After one demonstration and a follow up video to reassure her that Scout would comply, she medicated her with ease.

Robyn is just a fantastic woman who is clearly passionate about all animals.

We are lucky to have her in our family.
