About Sarah

Pets are our best friends and it's important to give them the love and care they deserve. I'd love the opportunity to provide this for your pets when you're unavaible so they have 100% TLC at all times. I have recently moved to Edinburgh from Belfast, Ireland and I am excited to look after pets here! In Ireland, I have sat for both cats and dogs and have had repeat dog walking customers.

I've been passionate about animals since childhood and have volunteered at an animal shelter, working primarily with dogs. This involved feeding and walking the dogs, cleaning their kennels and runs and of course giving them the love they deserve. I have an MSc in Animal Behaviour and Welfare. I've walked up to 5 dogs at a time (4 large dogs and one small) and received great feedback from the owners. Currently, I have a 13 year old terrier cross named Clara and 6 1/2 year old labrador named Tilly. Tilly is a recent tripawd (front left leg amputation) but with hard work and decidation she has made a full recovery and is as active as ever. I can care for dogs of all ages and abilities and I think it's really important to recognise that each animal is different and has their own character and individual needs and I love being able to provide this. I also have had Syrian Hamsters, both rescues. Hamsters are amazing little animals that I adore and I would love the opportunity to care for more.

I am inbetween jobs at the moment and so available at any time of the day, between 10am to 10pm.

I love the outdoors and I'm willing to walk dogs no matter the weather. Home-visits would last for an hour (I am open to staying longer if required) and involve lots of TLC and walks if permitted, along with regular care duties including feeding, changing water, medicine administration, cleaning bedding and liter trays and cleaning outdoor areas.

Due to the needs of my own pets, I am unable to offer over night stays in my house. I would love the opportunity to provide your pets with the love I give my own and every other animal I encounter. All animals are equal and deserving of TLC no matter the size or species. I have experience with cats, dogs (large and small) and rodents. I'm really excited to hear from you and hopefully meet your furbabies and begin caring for them!

Sarah is a great catsitter! She sent me updates and photos everyday. She is a lovely girl, loves animals and takes perfect care of them. Thanks so much Sarah for keeping Zipi and Zape happy during my holidays. Will definitely recommend you and I'll call you back soon. Xx
