About Heather

Hello. I am Heather. I am a friendly, reliable and loving dog/pet sitter. I have a licence from the council to board pets, have my own pet insurance for animals in my care and have been first aid trained for pets. I have over 30 years experience of walking other peoples dogs and have been pet sitting for cats young and very old as well as many other different

animals in the pets home or mine for 25 years. I have always had animals in my life since my child hood and had pets ever since starting my own family 23 years ago. I currently have a young golden Labrador who is friendly,playful,sometime bouncy and adores company of other dogs,I also have a very old cat(she is 17 years old) as well as a younger cat who is very used to dogs and other pets that come for their holidays with us and 2 very friendly rabbits. I am able to look after your pets in my home(I offer them a home from home)

or I can

visit them in their own home.

I have looked after all age range cats from pregnant and nursing cats and new born kittens up to very senior(our last cats lived until they were 20 and 22+ years)I have a good size 4 bedroom house with a safe good size garden with 6 foot fence and locks on the gate. we live beside fields and a park which is great for the dogs to have a run and play fetch and we often walk to woods. The country side fields are a 5 minute walk from our house and they lead to a lake where my puppy and the dogs I look after can have a swim if they want when we are there.

I am at home most of the day as I am a full time mum and am busy training our puppy. Having always had animals I know how important it is to find that special person to look and care for your pet(s)as much as you do when you are away and unable to be there. I would give your pets all the time,love,fuss,attention and care that they need when you are away. whilst they are with me they would be looked after as if they were my own. I would also be happy to give you updates and send photos of your pet in my care. If I was to come to your house to care for your pets whilst you were away for a night or more I would be happy to pick up post,

close

and open your curtains,turn on lights

and water house plants.

Please note that once you contact me and a meet and greet has happened day(s) and dates need to be booked and bookings have to be comfirmed and accepted by myself. I would like to stress the importance of making the booking as soon as possible after the meet and greet to guarantee the day(s) you are wanting as I am unable to horour day(s) that you are wanting unless a booking is made. Please accept that bookings that haven`t been booked and are left as contact even after a meet and greet, is not a booking. As I have many pet owners who contact me and then I don`t hear anything else from them and also many pet owners that come for a meet and greet and then I don`t hear from them again or they contact me a few weeks before their holiday or day out expecting me to have their pet(s)booked in for them which I can not do without a booking being made in the first place so I do suggest as soon after the meet and greet, a booking needs to be, if you are wanting me to look after your beloved pet(s) Availability is likely to change so I would strongly advise a pet owner as soon as possible to avoid disappoint.Also returming customers if you send me a enqiry for dates and I am able to help. then please book as soon as possible as booking is not guaranteed until after a booking has been place.

hope the info has helped. Please contact me if you have any other questions amd I will be more than happy to help. Many thanks KInd regards Heather
