About Caitlin

I am a recent Zoology graduate who is aiming to get a career in animal behaviour research or conservation. While I am still career-searching I would love to offer my services as a pet-sitter. From a very young age I have been surrounded by animals and I regularly look after the pets of friends, family and neighbours, including dogs, cats, tortoises... I always give any animal in my care 100% love and attention, with the health and wellbeing of the animal being the upmost priority. I volunteer regularly at Edinburgh Zoo where I educate the public about various animal species and conservation issues. I am currently working part-time in a cafe and want to fit in pet-sitting on the days I am not working. I work mainly at the weekends only know my work shifts for about 2-3 weeks in advance and I'll try and keep my calendar as up-to-date as possible.

As I am trying to save money, I am living at home with my parents in our family house. This means that any pet coming to stay gets even more love and attention from other members in my family. There is a small but very secure and enclosed back garden that is perfect for a pet to get relax in and get some fresh air. The nearest park is 5 minutes away and there are many other good dog-walking areas nearby.

Doggy Day Care
Gillian, 2019-07-11

Our dog Archie had a lovely day with Caitlin and her family. He came back from his day with her a very settled and happy dog. Caitlin was quick to respond to any messages and accommodating to any changes in plans. Would highly recommend.
