About Caitlyn

About me:

All dogs and cats deserve love, patience and respect. With opportunities such as caring for my own dogs, helping my mother with her own dog walking business (Houndsabout) and volunteering at Second chance Animal Rescue on the Cat team, I feel I have enough experience to treat your dog or cat with love and respect as if they were a member of my own family. I have lots of experience dealing with nervous cats and dogs which is why I’m a big believer that ‘Pawtience’ should always be a top priority.

I've had an affinity for animals most of my life, with dogs having a special place in my heart. As a child, I wanted a dog to the extent where I would take out all the books in the library on how to correctly look after your dog. When we finally got our first family dog, Roxy (a black labrador), my heart was filled to the brim with love. I classed myself as her proud sister. We now have Merlin (a rescue cream labrador) who I love to pieces (except now in more of a motherly fashion)! I've learnt a lot from him, especially in terms of settling a dog after having a rough start to their lives. I have so much love to give and would love the opportunity to share some of that love to as many precious doggos and cattos as I can!

I am an attentive and responsible individual who has an awareness for health and safety. I will always consider the safety of your beloved family member and keep you updated. I will respect each animal's individuality and only do whatever makes them and you comfortable. Inventing games and ways of entertaining Merlin is something I love to do (we play a lot of hide and seek) so I aspire to always bring my playful edge to any dog or cat who loves a good play! And if they don't love a good play, that's okay- cuddles or just talking to them is fine by me, whatever suits them.

I also like to think of myself as an expert 'poo picker upper' and never leave a poo without being picked up in a biodegradable bag...

Thank you so much for considering me as becoming a friend and guardian to your animal.

Caitlyn has a true love of dogs and cats which shone through as soon as Artie and I met her for the first time. She is extremely caring and thoughtful and experienced in dealing with pets. Caitlyn totally understands that Artie is an anxious dog and is patient and conscientious in her work with him. I have no doubt that she is a perfect sitter for Artie and I can see their bond developing. I have no hesitation at all in recommending Caitlyn to look after your much loved and precious pets.
