About Sadie

I am a kind, respectful, non-smoking animal lover with professional experience in the animal care industry and many great references from regular clients. I've recently moved to Bristol from London, and I have some spaces that have opened up. However, I do still travel to London for pet sitting.

In the naughties I studied for an Animal Care National Diploma, and at Uni a BSc in Animal Behaviour, Ecology and Conservation. I have worked as a dog walker, a house and pet sitter, in a cat sanctuary, a monkey sanctuary and on farms looking after horses over the years, however not continuously, I also have experience working in finance/administration and as a freelance artist and performer. 

At 41 now, I'm mature, reliable and a quiet reassuring presence in your home while you are on holiday. I am also now able to open up my flat in Bristol for doggy day care. I live close by to 2 huge parks in Eastville Park and Snuff Mills for regular walks. I am good at gaining trust quite quickly with animals, especially with more timid or protective types. I grew up in the countryside on a small holding, looking after dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, a hamster, ducks, geese, chickens and growing veg, (I also kept Ferrets while I was at university) so I am happy to also offer the service of watering plants/allotments, and looking after other animals (not just cats and dogs).

Please feel free to get in touch to discuss your petcare needs. Thanks alot

Sadie was excellent with Diesel. He warmed to her and settled in quickly. She was very kind and patient. She sent me photos and updates and I knew that he was happy and in safe hands. Would definitely recommend Sadie to care for your pet.

Not the first time Sadie has looked after our house and cat, Dandy, and Sadie was great. She’s really communicative and looked after Dandy brilliantly.

I have worked in animal rescue shelters during college as part of my BTEC National Diploma in Animal Care (Cats Protection and a Monkey Sanctuary), then went on to work longer term at the Monkey Sanctuary. I have worked as a dog walker and have worked with many rescue dogs and dogs with behavioural problems, as well as larger dogs and dogs that pull on the lead alot. I am familiar with basic training.
