About Deborah

Think Mary Poppins, but for pets, that's pretty much me (although I smile a lot more than Mary and am definitely not as strict!) I'm very warm, friendly, patient and I adore animals. I'm a qualified social worker (for the human sort of animal, to clarify) and am extremely responsible, trustworthy and reliable. I'm working from home almost 100% of the time now, so thought it might be fun to combine that with pet sitting. I can't accommodate at the moment though, sadly (that could very well change in the near future), so I'm only available to pet sit in your home at present (or to pop in and feed pets while you’re away).I trained my mother's dogs and have loads of experience being around animals. I reject the idea that you have to be either a dog OR a cat lover; I love all animals equally (ok, maybe not mosquitos or worms or a few other slimy insects, but I can't imagine you'd hire me to look after them). If you like my profile and you'd consider entrusting me with one of your furry family members, please do get in touch. I can be super flexible and am also happy to take last minute bookings, if you have an emergency or find yourself in a bind (or just fancy a last minute holiday).

Pet sitting is for a 24h period. I will walk dogs as per their usual routines and feed all pets as would normally happen.

Dog walks are for 1 hour.

If you book me to feed your pet, I'm happy to spend about half an hour playing with them and generally keeping them company too.

Oh and my rates vary depending on the kind of pets/number of them or if it's a bank holiday etc. I charge less for cat sits, than dog (for example). I very much look forward to hearing from you.

House Sitting
Vivienne, 2022-06-09

I cannot praise Deborah highly enough! She was excellent with our two whippets from the word go at the 'meet and greet' and once she was here for the three day stay she was wonderful with them. We had no anxieties about leaving them at all and knew they'd be in safe hands with Deborah. She walked them well every day and really got to know them during her stay. They responded and accepted her as one of the family. I cannot recommend Deborah highly enough and we'd love to use her again in the future. Vivienne Alexander

House Sitting
Niki, 2022-06-04

Deb was extremely communicative, & understanding of all three of my fur babies needs! Made going away so much easier than it was before with previous house sitters & I couldn’t be more grateful.

She left the home in an extremely clean & respectful manner & always ensured to keep us aware of anything that concerned her (animal health wise).

10/10!!

Will definitely be having her around again if she’ll have us!
