Hi, my name is Helen, I provide a bespoke pet sitting service in Gloucestershire & Swindon. I also provide a onetoone dog walking service in Gloucester, Abbeymead, Abbeydale, Quedgley, Barnwood & Tuffley. I can also support people, who are unable to walk their dog, due to a work training course, overtime, or unexpected event.
I only walk your dog/s so i can assist owners, whose dog cannot be walked with other dogs, in dog pack groups.
I always arrange a free no obligation meet & greet service, so that your pet can meet me first and you can decide if your pet likes me.
I hold a 2017 pet first aid certificate and also have a disclosure Scotland certificate. During my pet first aid course in April 2017 I learnt pet CPR & how to deal with minor injuries in dogs & cats.
I can care for your pet in your own home to enable your pets to continue to be happy in familiar surroundings and routines.
During your dog's walk, I provide GPS live tracked walks & daily photos to enable you to see where your dog has walked, while you are away. This information shows the time, location & distance of the walk.
My previous experience includes looking after a golden retriever and Jack Russell called Molly & Ruby. I took them on different tracked walks each day and sent daily photos updates to the owner; he was so happy that he sent me a 5 star review.
I have also looked after two lovely Weimeraners and received a great review on Pawshake.I also recently looked after two rescue collies and a whippet and received a 5 star review from the owner.
In June 2017 I looked after two cats and a blind and diabetic dog, which needed twice daily injections, in France. And I received a 4 star review from the French family.
I have also done petsitting for 4 chickens, with an Alsatian dog, who didn't like other dogs, & their cat.
More recently I did petsitting for a puppy rotweiller in the owner's home & provided daily photos & tracked walks. I also only use bio-degradable poop bags that are environmentally friendly. And I carry a pet first aid kit with me at all times on dog walks. I keep dogs on a lead at at all times for their safety & your peace of mind.
I have also recently had some funny short dog walking stories published in https://www.gooddog.com/2017/11/21/dog-walking-stories/ if you would like to read about my varied experiences.
i also hold a clean driving licence and only transport pets using dog seat belts In accordance with Highway Code rule 57. So if your pet travels in my car, they will always be safely and securely transported. I also provide dog click seat belts & adjustable dog harnesses.
For pet sitting I cover Gloucester, Stroud & Wiltshire. For dog walking I cover Gloucester City, Quedgley, Abbeymead, Abbeydale, Barnwood, Tuffley and areas within 2 miles of Gloucester city.
Finally, if you would like to see evidence of my pet first aid or Disclosure Scotland checks, please let me know & I will be happy to send you a copy.
I have 3 dogs an 18 month old Snouzer, a 6 year old Snouzer & a Sheltie who is going on 16 & is on 4 medications a day .
This is my first use of a House/Dog Sitter and only wish I had tried it years ago as it has all worked out so well . Helen is a first class ambassador for Pawshake & was faultless in her care of the Dogs & my home .
It is a huge relief to know that your animals(& home) are being cared for by someone that really cares & obviously loves dogs .The younger Dogs got reguler exercise & I recieved
several emails & a number of photos from Helen that enabled me to relax, knowing that my dogs were being cared for safely, in thier own home,& within thier normal routines etc .
In short I will ,without hesitation , book Helen again in the future .
Helen was a wonderful sitter. She kept me up to date with everything that was going on and I genuinely felt reassured that my dog was happy and in good hands! The booking was somewhat last minute and my timings were a little late but Helen was more than happy to help. Helen looked after my dog very well, I would highly recommend her.
