About Charlotte

*new to the Pawshake platform but references from previous clients are available on request *Hi I’m Charlie and I’m currently on a gap year with plans to open my own dog walking business! Dog walking kept me sane throughout lockdown. After my doberman passed away suddenly, I needed a dog in my life to keep me busy and well... here we are a year later! Exercise and spending time with animals does wonders for my serotonin levels! 

I have over 15 years of caring for my own personal dogs and cats so will be sure to give your pet the best time they can have in my care! Given that I’ve lived in Northampton all my life with dogs, I’ll be sure to take them to all the best places for a swim, check out some smells and all the other best doggy places - all without you having to worry about the mess! I can collect from your home or meet you at a designated place. Whilst I’m not allowed to have animals in my own flat- I am able to house sit, taking care of your pets whilst you are at work or away , and have a full DBS check due to working in healthcare that can be presented on arrival!

I’m currently studying for my alevels resits and work a six hour part time shift on Sundays (7:30-13:30). Sometimes a dog walk is needed to relieve stress! This means that I have the rest of the week free to pamper your pup(s)! whether I need to be an early bird or a night owl; I'm fully flexible around your pooch's routine!

Your pooch will be sure to be pampered in my care. I pride myself on building a relationship with your dog and yourself to establish any needs and worries. If you've read this far; you might as well have a snoop at left on Instagram and Facebook, ! Nothing is more important to me than your pets' well-being. I always aim to give your pets a "holiday home" where they will feel content.

Your pooch can expect chasing rabbits, playing fetch in the stream and let’s be honest, probably me yelling “LEAVE IT” as your dog scoffs as much horse poo as it possibly can before I get it back on the lead.

Let me know if your dog has any special needs or behaviours I may need to account for so we can have the best experience! :) 

For example:

-vet care 

-if your dog is insured 

-any phobias your dog has

-any specific breeds to be sure to avoid on walks (dachshunds who hate goldens or Doberman’s that can’t stand cockapoos. Let me know what brings out your dogs’ inner Nigel farag) 

-any health conditions 

- if you have a nanny cam in your house and if I am allowed mobile access

I can administer oral medications to dogs as well as care for senior dogs.

Please note that a meet and greet does not guarantee I will accept the booking.

Meet and greets MUST involve a tour of the house.

I recommend meet and greets two weeks before the booking is due to commence, in case we aren’t a suitable fit there is time for you to arrange alternate care.

Things I look for in a meet and greet:

-Is the house clean and tidy?

I’m unable to work in houses with mould and hoarding.

-Where will I be sleeping? Is it clean and tidy/ fresh bedding?

- Is there a working SHOWER?

- Are there hygienic facilities for me to cook food?

- I will not stay overnight if there are other people staying in the home.

This does not create a comfortable environment for me and therefore the animals in my care.

I reserve the right to end the booking without refund if there are other people in the home and I am not made aware (to avoid me not accepting a booking) I reserve the right to stay elsewhere over night (from 8pm-6am) if I feel unsafe, uncomfortable, or that the animals are in danger. In situations where animals are at risk; they will be boarded at another suitable home.

- No undergarments on the floor (unhygienic and choking hazard for dogs)

- I reserve the right to stay overnight elsewhere if these basic hygiene standards are not met.

-(excluding dogs under 5 months) Are the animals toilet trained?

-I reserve the right to cancel the booking if I am concerned for my safety.

-I must be made aware of any firearms/ weapons / faux firearms/ drugs before the meet and greet. I am a VERY understanding person, but I will not be legally compromised. If I find any in my stay police will be called and the booking will be IMMEDIATELY cancelled. It is then the owners responsibility to find alternative care. Please inform all occupants of the home of this before the meet and greet.

House sitting works on a foundation of mutual trust and respect.
