About Dana

Hello there, my name is Dana, I’m 24 and I would make the best companion for your beloved friends.

I am currently available for hire in both Bedfordshire and West London, though I am also happy to take on House Sits throughout London (anywhere on the underground). I am an actor and choreographer which means looking after and caring for your pets is the perfect B job and I can be very flexible with my time. I’ll always be sure to have a bag of treats on hand for all my furry friends and a smile to match. It is my ethos to look after every single pet in my care as if they were my very own.

Unfortunately, my current rental agreement doesn’t allow me to have pets, but that just means that taking care of yours is my top priority! I’ve grown up with both cats and dogs my entire life, always caring and providing boundless love for any animal I meet. I truly love all animals, I am extremely confident around large pets, bossy pets, nervous pets and ensure that every pet is quickly made to feel welcome in my presence. I have raised my German Shepherd, Shadow for the past twelve years and I am adept at providing health care, treating medical conditions, preparing specialized food for dietary requirements and can even teach your pets a trick or two. More than one pet is never an issue, I have previously fostered German Shepherds and looked after both cats and dogs in the same house.

Got a new puppy/kitten? No problem! I can help to house-train your pet, encourage them with positive reinforcement techniques and provide so many cuddles while they are adjusting to their new home.

On our initial visit, I will have my checklist and notebooks where we will discuss all your requirements, your pet's individual needs and anything extra I may be able to provide to make everyone’s experience special.

House Visits

Each house visit will last at least an hour. I will provide a complete check-up on your pet, ensuring all their needs are met and showering them with love. You will be sent updates including a picture or video of your pet during every visit.

Dog Walking

I am more than happy to walk any dog of any size. Having trained my own German Shepherd on how to walk on the lead from puppyhood, I am experienced with getting a dog to heel and have the strength to handle larger breeds, along with caring for our smaller friends. I will always have biodegradable poop bags on hand and I am more than happy to take pets to the park and make sure they get their daily exercise.

House Sitting

You can be guaranteed that we will have the best sleepover ever. I will always treat your home with the utmost respect and make the safety and security of your home and your pets my top priority. I can always be reached by phone at any hour or you can drop me messages if you are away. Don’t be afraid to message me, I would love to hear from you and let you know how we are getting on together.

You can be guaranteed that if I have a query at all regarding the care of your pet, I will always ask.

Dana is a wonderful lady, and absolutely our "go to" cat sitter. She stepped in at the last minute to look after our boy (just after he'd lost his sister), and he loved being with Dana and getting all the cuddles and love. We can never thank Dana enough, and would highly recommend her to anyone.

Thank you once again Dana :)

House Sitting
Colin and Linda, 2019-09-24

Dana is a fantastic house and pet sitter. She looks after both the house and the cats as if they were her own, and provides daily updates and photos of how things are going. Our cats love her, and see her as their additional parent. We couldn't recommend Dana any more highly, and can't wait for the next time that she visits.
