About Holly

Hi I’m Holly,

I have been pet sitting and dog walking for over 8 years.

I’ve always been fascinated by animals that my love and curiosity inspired me to end up pursuing my career in caring for them.

I’m currently working as an Animal Care Assistant and have volunteered over the years with, The Dogs trust, The Cats Protection League and Blair Drummond Safari Park. I’ve worked with a variety of animals from farm animals, to horses, to large cats and even elephants in South Africa.

I'm experienced with dog and puppy training using positive reinforcement methods and have also spent time training stray dogs in Portugal.

I love working with dogs and have a real enthusiasm when working with them. There is nothing better than getting to see the sheer excitement and a waggy tail about to go for a walk.

I find myself familiar with cat behaviour, handling and care and can offer house sitting or check in's once or twice a day, depending what suits your needs.

I’m aware that kennels, catteries and unfamiliar environments can be stressful for pets, especially when owners are absent, so you can relax knowing your pet is being cared for at home with their own creature comforts.

I offer:

- House sitting for cats and dogs and other pets

- Dog walking in and around the Glasgow area

- Daily check in's. 1 - 2 x per day

Holly is very kind hearted to both pet and pet owners. This is second time she has been very accommodating in the booking dates and times. Really great to go away on holidays and know she is very reliable. Came home to a very happy cat.

Took excellent care of our cat and home for 6 nights. Very friendly with great communication throughout. Clearly very good with animals, even fussy ones like our cat. Would book Holly again.
