My name is Diana and I have a love for all things animal. I've attained a Level 3 qualification in Animal Care and Management at Capel Manor College and recently completed and acquired a qualification in Professional Pet Sitting and Dog Walking Practices. I have four years experience working in the animal care sector; working as an animal carer and receptionist in a vet and pet shop and as the managers assistant at a Wildlife Rescue and Ambulance Service. I’ve also recently had training in dog walking.
I have always had a love for animals. While growing up I always had pets, three of which were cats, a rabbit, fish and I now my little bearded dragon Lulu.
Before my animal care career started I trained as a safari field guide in South Africa, an amazing experience which fed my passion about the animal world to animal behaviour, and ultimately animal care. I also spend my time as a nature photographer, being out in nature is something I’m passionate about and to share walks with your little ones is a wonderful experience we can both enjoy.
My visits are between 30 mins- 1 hour, but I do on occasions stay longer if your pet requires more attention. During my visits, I will feed your little ones and change the litter tray and if you want me to groom your kitties or pups I'm more than happy to do so. I will, of course, play and have a cuddle with them and if you need, I can administer medication. All with daily photos of your little ones to give you peace of mind that they are healthy and happy.
WALKS: FIRST WALK FREE!
For the first walk there will be no charge so I can assess your pup to make sure we’re a good match.
Walks will usually be for 1 hour unless your pups require a shorter walk.
As I do not have a vehicle walks will be solo, unless there are more than one dog per house.
* PLEASE NOTE: If the temperature is 28 degrees or over, or 0 degrees or below it’s not safe for your pups to go out for long periods. In this situation I will take them out for shorter walks if there is a wooded/shady area or I’ll visit your little ones at home.
I'm also experienced with reptiles, birds, farm animals such as ponies, goats, sheep and pigs, and smaller mammals such as rabbits, guinea pigs and hamsters etc so I can also feed and change the bedding for them too :)
I cover areas in South East London - New Cross, Deptford, Brockley, Lewisham, Greenwich, Peckham, Southwark, and Dulwich. If there are any other areas around I have not mentioned that you would like me to visit please let me know, I'm sure I can arrange.
Thank you and look forward to meeting you!
