My name is Ines, I am a major dog lover, and the proud keeper of a four year old Whippet named Winnie, rehomed from Battersea. I have been a regular pet sitter for the last three years. I have experience with many different dogs shapes, sizes and personalities. I believe it's important to establish an orderly routine to give structure and confidence to a dog and frequent socialisation with a wide variety of dogs to prevent undesirable behaviours. And of course lots of love & cuddles! My training technics are about positively reinforcement; fear, intimidation and physical punishment are completely out of the picture!
I enjoy nature and outdoor life, and I am happy taking dogs out in inclement weather; I have a warm, friendly, and trustworthy demeanour that will inspire confidence in dog keepers that I will follow their instructions to the letter.
I know how dog keepers feel towards their pets; it's a bond that I have developed many times over my life and I recognise that they need to feel reassured that their dog's are in competent, and loving hands.
My services include dog walking, home visits, and dog boarding. Dog walks are never less than thirty minutes and it can go up to two hours. I will provide treats and poop bags. I can collect your dog if needed, but expect extra charge. I can also stay at your home to pet sit overnight if you feel your dog will be happier or I can host your dog at my place. I usually don't take puppies, but if I do, I might charge more for all the extra cleaning and attention required.
I live in a very quiet and secure neighbourhood, near Finsbury Park, (ten minutes walk) and Paignton Park is just around the corner. Both parks are dog friendly with lots of lovely dogs and nice keepers that I already made acquaintance. My home is cosy and peaceful, I have a fenced and secure garden, dog bed and lots of toys. Your dog will be free to move around the house.
Winnie is very friendly and always happy to meet new dogs, if I am boarding, your dog must be socialised and house trained. I never take more than one dog at the same time due to space limitations.
Please feel free to ask me any questions, I can provide references and DBS and I have a PDSA Pet First Aid Certificate.
Looking forward to meet you and your furry friend!
I would definitely recommend Ines! She was great from start to end! Sent us loads of pictures and videos and took good care of our cat.
We trusted her and were right!!
Ines was great with our 7 year old dog who is terrified by fireworks. She kept us updated about how our dog was coping during the New Year celebrations and she showed a lot of expertise on dog behaviour.
