About Sonia

House sitting with overnight stays anytime although I work weekdays 9 to 5 so pets would need to be ok alone in the day. Dog walks weekend only. Local areas include Twickenham, Richmond, Teddington, Hampton, Kingston.

I've been pet sitting for 5 years now after starting in Australia. I've also volunteered at the Sydney Dogs & Cats home and currently doing a training course in dog behaviour. 

I work full time for the tennis governing body developing sports products and programmes. 

I'm quite active so free time is spent enjoying outdoor adventures hiking, cycling, running or kayaking / SUPing the Thames and love to take dogs out on a run or long walk. 

I can offer a calm, relaxed atmosphere or play and stimulation depending on what your pets need.

Pet sitting is a side hobby and is accommodated around work commitments. 

Day care usually at the owners place apart from one off occasions when I can have them at mine. 

Happy to stay overnight or just pop in to feed or walk dogs up to medium/large size. Walks are flexible depending on dog needs and time available.

I'm quite experienced with different behaviours having come across many different animals and can promise your pet will have a great time. I'll keep you as updated as you would like, each owner is very different. Very clean person and will leave your house exactly as you left it. 

Get in touch if you'd like to know more or want to arrange a meet and greet.

Always great when Sonia looks after shark. She takes him for a nice long walk and plays with him. Also great she can come do day care at our house too
