Hi there :) My name is Julia, I'm 30, and I'm a big animal lover!
I have had animals in my life since I was very young, and my interest in training them (as well as caring for them) has greatly increased over the years. I have experience in looking after dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, and horses. I have a particular interest in training dogs both in behaviour and agility. I have a good understanding in reading an animal’s body language and knowing how to respond to it, whether in the home or out on a walk.
I currently don't have a pet of my own but I do have a cat living with me, and a family dog which I helped train from a puppy who I often visit (the border collie in the photos).
I offer home visits, pet sitting, and dog walks (which can range from 30-60mins, dependant on the dog's needs). I am a very active person and enjoy walks in the countryside - you can be sure that your dog will have a lovely walk :) I also have experience in looking after unwell animals and giving medications, and I spent a week in a veterinary surgery for work experience.
I really enjoy looking after other people’s pets - it’s a privilege and a joy, and I treat them just as I would treat my own; with a lot of love, care, and respect. I understand the concern you may feel about being away from your beloved pets, so I'll be more than happy to send you photos and updates on how they're getting on.
I work part-time in another job so I’m mostly free in the afternoons and evenings during the week (from 4:30pm Mon, Tues, Thurs, from 3:30pm Wed, from 2pm Fri), and all day over the weekend. Regarding house sitting, I am only available to stay over from Friday to Sunday. I am based in Edinburgh city centre and won’t be taking bookings outside of Edinburgh.
If you have any questions please do get in touch!
Thank you for taking the time to read this, and I hope that I will hear from you and meet your lovely pets soon :)
