About Jo

Welcome to my profile.

Having 2 dogs and 2 cats, and a tropical fish tank of my own and having had pets almost all of my child and adult life, (almost 50 years!), I consider myself to be experienced when it comes to pet care.  

I also know what a struggle it is to find carers for my own pets when we travel, and I prefer to have someone look after them at home where they are comfortable or familiar, or at someone else’s home who has and loves pets.  

The services I offer will be to look after your pet or pets at my home, or yours, providing them with almost 24/7 care.

For home boarding, I will only take up to a maximum of 2 dogs in, so that all fur babies can get the love and attention they deserve.

I will ensure that they are walked, fed, and most of all loved while you enjoy your holiday. I will gladly keep you updated with daily photos, and I will care for your pet or pets as if they were my own.  

I will arrange a pre-meet before I agree to look after them as you, and your pets need to be comfortable with me.

The most important part of my service is that we are comfortable with each other, and the pets, so that you can have a stress and worry-free vacation knowing that your pets (and home) are loved and cared for.

I look forward to meeting you and your lovely pets soon 😊.

PLEASE NOTE:

I can do up to two home visits a day in the local area. Outside of a 3 mile radius the tariff is as shown, plus £1/mile to travel.

I now have a 4 star council license to board pets.

To comply with licensing conditions, if your dog is boarding for the 1st time with me for longer than 3 nights, they will need to have a overnight meet and greet at our home at the standard nightly cost rate.

There is a festive tariff on top of the booking rate that applies for the period 22 December to, and including 2 January 2024 as follows:

Home boarding (at my house): £5/night

House & pet sitting (at your house): £10/night.

I only have positive things to say about Jo. I looked for a dog sitter for quite a while before I found her, as I couldn't seem to find one who I felt I could instantly trust as soon as I walked through the door. On our first meeting with Jo I knew she was the person that I wanted to look after my dog and I'm so glad I chose her. She really wanted to get to know my Pepper, her likes, dislikes, routine, habits basically everything and anything that would make her feel like she was in a second home. Pepper is very nervous of new people but I can tell she connected with Jo and her family and I loved receiving daily updates on how she was getting on. I absolutely cannot fault the service she provided to us, you can tell she does this because she genuinely loves animals. I would have no hesitation about using Jo again to take care of my dog, she's honestly been amazing.

Jo has been fantastic from start to finish! Her communication prior to dropping our dogs off to her was first class. She welcomed us into her home so we could see how our dogs were in a different environment. She has warm, loving home and our dogs were so well looked after during their stay. We highly recommend Jo for anyone looking for a loving, warming home for their pets. Thank you Jo!
