About Donata

Fancy a holiday? Busy at work? Wait! And your pet?!? No worries, there's Donata!

Aloha! I am Donata and I LOVE ANIMALS. They make me happy. I grew up in the countryside of the Dolomites, and I've always used to be around animals. As a child, I used to have many pets in the house, including dogs, cats, and hamsters, whom I learned to take care of from a young age, as my parents wanted me to become responsible and understand the importance of taking care of others. I now very much miss not having any pets around, hence why I'm here! I come from a family of professional dog trainers for Mountain Rescue, therefore I learned the ropes of dog-training techniques quite early and I'm ready for any challenge! I also love purring companionship; I have been used to looking after hordes of cats since I was a child, so I'm looking forward to taking care of your cat too!

👣 ABOUT ME

I'm a part-time researcher working from home and in need of breaks from my screen every now and then to keep me sane, so I am available at short notice and very flexible timewise, which is ideal for any last-minute appointment/date/inconvenience/shift you need to cover or for anyone out of town for holidays. I live in Woodlands together with my partner Aonghas (Gaelic spelling of Angus) who is very good at dog-training techniques, so your pet would be in the safe hands of not only one, but TWO humans, experienced in caring for animals. We live in a big flat with a secure and fully fenced back garden where your four-legged friend can run safely and play freely; and a public fenced green area in the front. Our flat is walking distance from Kelvingrove Park, the River Kelvin Walkway to the Botanic Gardens, Ruchill Park, and the Local Reserve area along the canal where we like to take dogs out for a walk and some outdoor playtime daily. Occasionally, we take them on wee hikes or adventures in Queens Park, Pollock Park, Linn Park, Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park, so that your pet can enjoy and explore different locations!

🐾 ABOUT THE PET-SITTING

We love the outdoors and staying outside as much as possible, and what better than taking long walks with a four-legged friend? Therefore, we're more than happy to accommodate any requests and even apply discounts on longer stays. The cost of our dog-sitting service goes towards: insurance covering veterinary costs in case of injury; any travel expenses; poop bags; ink and paper to print relevant insurance documents that need to be signed before the sitting; the love, care, attention, entertainment, training skills and professional experience of two pet-sitters towards your pet!

🐕 MEET & GREET 🐈

I've been a pet owner and I know how important it is to find someone who can genuinely care about your pet as their own, who can be trusted and who can also be a good match for your dog(s) and/or cat(s) - as they are the ones who needs to feel comfortable with us. It's very important for us to learn their behaviour, habits and fears, and observe how they interact with other animals, people, and children beforehand, therefore we recommend meeting you and your pet for a wee walk or a house visit at out flat before sitting. 

We look forward to meeting you and your little (or giant) friend!

Donata is a fantastic dog sitter. Our dog had a great time and care and we got lots of communication. I couldn't recommend Donata more. Everything was perfect!

I’m so glad we found Donata and Aonghas. This is now the second time Poppy has stayed over now for a few nights and nothing was too much trouble. We were worried about going on our trip with her stomach issue she was experiencing however Donata reassured us it was no problem giving her meds for it and also made sure she ate well and kept an eye on her health and tailored their day to meet our fur baby needs especially with her being such a fussy eater too and used various techniques to make sure she has had enough food to keep her healthy was very appreciated as we know how difficult it can be. Due to both of their love and care Poppy has came home in full health looking relaxed and happy. Donata also reassured us of how she was doing throughout her stay which put my mind at ease and sent gorgeous professional photos of her which allowed me to fully relax after a stressful couple of weeks with her health. I can’t thank them enough for their care they go above and beyond and more. We are now looking forward to our big holiday abroad knowing Poppy will be in great hands and also have her own fun holiday!
