About Marta

Hello! My name is Marta and I'd be honoured to take care of your pet while you're not around.I have extensive experience in the field, having taken care of a pretty wide range of animals, from little rodents to big cats in South Africa, working and volunteering as much as I could. This experience has sharpened my attention to details, flexibility over singolar individuals' needs, different methods of comunication and training among other things.I've always known that animal care is my calling; that's why I focused my studies on it. After studying Natural Sciences at Sapienza University I undertook various courses such as Animal Management, Animal Care and Animal Behaviour. This is important because not only I now have knowledge of animals' anatomy, which can make a difference when it comes to perform pet first-aid, but I also know the theory behind their behaviour, which helps me further to understand when the animal is relaxed or agitated, hurting or excited, etc.

I moved to London a year and a half ago, leaving my two dog brothers and my cat sister with my parents and human sibiling. Now I offer my services to you because I genuinely miss having pets around and I have a lot of love and professional attention to give to them.

I can't accomodate pets in my apartment, but I'm more than happy to pet sit during day, night or both in you place and to take your pet on walks.

Services expectations:

- I offer Walks, Home visits and House sitting

- Walks are usually 45 minutes to one hour long, I’ll take your pet in areas you’ll agree on and No off-lead dog play unless allowed by you.

- Home visits are usually 45 minutes to one hour long

Cats: I’ll clean litter tray and spend time with the cat

Dogs: I’ll spend time engaging and playing with the dog. Dogs will be brought out to the toilet.

Puppies/senior dogs: I’ll clean up any mess made by the dog

Small pets: I’ll tidy cages and do a full clean if the booking is more than 4 days

- I’m usually always available throughout the day (morning, afternoon, evening)

- For House sitting I’ll spend as much time in the house as needed

Cats: I’ll clean litter tray and spend time with the cat

Dogs: dogs will get at least 1 hour of physical exercise (can be broken down as indoor/outdoor play, multiple walks or one long walk as per agreement with you); I’ll pick up all dog poop in the backyard during the stay

Small pets: I’ll tidy cages and do a full clean if the booking is more than 4 days
