I have worked with and owned animals most of my life. I have volunteered in a wildlife hospital which taught me a lot. They had rescue dogs that I worked with and cats . I have two of my own dogs.
. I can offer a flexible , friendly service as I only work part time with long lunch hours. I am a confident driver to transport animals if necessary. I am happy to cat/ dog sit in people's homes. If I were unable to fulfil a visit, my husband John is fully experienced with dogs and cats and would be happy to help. He is retired and has volunteered at Riverside Animal Hospital Beddington (with the dogs), and Battersea Dogs Home.
I have worked with cats in my previous job with the RSPCA and am confident and experienced in their care. I like them and they tend to like and trust me. I have some experience with reptiles, my son had leopard geckos in the distant past. I am in the process of being DBS checked which I will add when complete.
We are licensed for doggy day and boarding care and have had many stop with us over the years. We tend to work with smaller dogs as ours are little old ladies now. Our rescue dogs Poppet and Smarty welcome additions to the household. As conditions of license , our garden is fully secure and safe with 6 foot fencing with no gaps.
We have required disinfectants and are clean and safe. We have good sized parks nearby which offer fantastic walks.
We own our semi detached house and have a medium garden. As a condition of our licence we have separate rooms and all sorts of cleaners and disinfectants. We have first aid knowledge and kits.
I am happy to visit somebody's home to feed and socialise with cats...an hour or so a visit. LIkewise with dogs. This would be twice a day or if necessary 3 shorter visits a day.
I can offer an hours dog walk twice a day
First aid certificate. Have been on cat and dog care courses with the RSPCA when employed by them
