Hello ! My name is Matilde, im 21 and I am a true animal fanatic. From a young age I have always had one true passion, animals ! I grew up spending time in the countryside during school holidays and most weekends and begging my parents to have as many animals as possible, and it worked as by the age of 10 I was taking care of a rabbit, a ferret, several goldfish and a hamster. My family and i had always wanted a dog but due to school timings and my parents job, it was not possible. I spent a lot of my childhood riding horses, helping out at stables and on farms in France and in the UK. I discovered scuba diving at the age of 10 whilst on holiday and am a keen scuba diver to this day, having recently completed my PADI Rescue Diver. I also have keen interests in horticulture as well as David Attenborough/Brian Cox documentaries and books. I have dog experience ranging from chihuahuas to newfoundlands including the young, the shy and the elderly. Since then I have had several dogs come and stay with myself for up to 3 weeks ranging from 6months to 9 years old. I also have experience in boarding rabbits and ferrets and would be more than comfortable for other small animals to come and live with me depending on the needs and the animal. I live at The Shore within a quiet residential area where Leith Links park is a 10 minute walk from my house as well as dog friendly green areas within my residential block. When i am with a dog, it is my priority and interest to give them all of my attention which is why i will only walk 1 dog at a time unless two dogs come from the same household. I do have experience with washing and grooming a dog (not cutting). I have experience with aquarium maintainance, care and cleaing with both fresh water and tropical water. I am keen to better myself in my knowledge of dog breeds and behaviours and i have always said that i get on better with the furry than with the humans. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any queries or questions, i would be more than happy to help.
To say Molly and Reggie my terriers had the VIP treatment is an understatement! Matilde took them right into her heart and her home and treated them with kindness and understanding of their needs. They are rescue dogs who are anxious in new situations and matilde took great care to adapt her routine to their needs and was incredibly understanding. I would enthusiastically reccomend matilde without hesitation and Molly and Reggie cannot wait to see her again!
Matilde took such good care of Oliver. He has obviously enjoyed his walks and cuddles! She was conscientious and aware of the needs of an older dog. We are very happy and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Matilde to anyone requiring pet care.
