About Sophie

I have now been using Pawshake for a number of months and I have gained some good experience in petsitting. I am 27 years old, and I’ve just graduated in Applied Social Studies, with experience in childcare as well as other types of care. I work with a care agency currently which means I can choose shifts around other responsibilities, such as petsitting. The agency work requires me to be flexible, and means i can be sent to work with different types of services. This means that I have acquired a lot of skills in being patient, compassionate, understanding and a good communicator/listener which are skills also useful in working with pets. I am also a good mediator. I am good at communicating with owners and sharing photos to let them see how their pup is doing. For the time being I am really enjoying petsitting hence have no plans to work full time hours, therefore I have plenty of time to spend at home or with guest pets.

I have a beautiful frenchie called lorne and also have experience helping with my mums golden retriever as well as friends dogs such as pugs, collies, border terriers, and chihuahuas. Lorne is a friendly pup who loves to play as well as snuggle up. He is very happy to make some new dog friends as he is a social boy.

We live next to Kelvingrove park so the park is our back garden, however we also have a few quieter areas and parks around if that is better suited for your pup. We love to go for walks or find somewhere quiet to relax.

Please keep in mind although I live in quite a large spacious flat it is 2 floors up, so if your dog is not confident on stairs then I am most likely not the best fit for you however if they are small/medium i have no problem carrying them up and down the stairs.

The bests dog sitter ever! I was terrified to have to leave my dog to a stranger. Sophie replied to my messages multiple times a day showing me pics of my dog and that reassured me so much throughout my vacation! The dog enjoyed his stay so much he didn’t want to come home. 100% recommended

Another great stay for Maisie with Sophie and Lorne. It’s really a home from home for her 🤗
