About Gemma

I strongly believe that animals make the world a better place and have always loved every type of animal. I dream of opening up a rescue sanctuary in the future.

I will never say no to a cuddle, and would be honoured to be trusted to look after any pets you trust me with. As well as offering visits and play/cuddles, I am more than happy to take your pets out for their walks where required. I will make sure they have full bellies and hearts.

I will send you updates, and pictures, of my time with your pets as I know it can be nerve wracking leaving your furbaby with somebody new. I can also let you know when I arrive and when I leave for your peace of mind.

If there are any additional requirements you have, please feel free to drop me a message before booking and we can discuss what would best suit your pet's needs. Any house rules for myself and your pet (such as not going upstairs, no shoes in the house and special diets for your furry friends) will be strongly adhered to as part of my visit.

I am very friendly and gentle, and have bonded with many animals throughout my life including rescues, poorly animals, and those with nervous temperaments. My care is not restricted to cats and dogs, and I am more than happy to care for other animals including (but not limited to) lizards, fish, hamsters and rabbits.

I currently work, so am unable to offer 24 hour care but I am more than happy to work around my commitments to find the most suitable time for you. During weekdays, I will not be available between the hours of 07:00 and 16:30.

One visit a day will cover time up to an hour, two visits a day will cover two separate visits of one hour each or one two hour slot - whichever works for you.

If you would like to meet me with your pet(s) first before booking, this can be arranged upon request.

I look forward to hearing from you, and thank you for taking the time to read my information.

Gemma was absolutely fantastic. Clear comms throughout and got on really well with our dog.

Gemma has been warm and caring to our two dogs and they responded accordingly although it was the first time they were being looked after by someone other than family. Communication was truly excellent with regular updates so it felt like a team experience. I was impressed particularly with how closely Gemma listened to all the details and how conscientiously she included our wishes in her care. Would recommend and would definitely work with again!

Specific Skills

I speak English
+5 years of experience
I have been on Pawshake for over a year now. I have looked after dogs (young and older), cats and fish. I have experience with many different breeds at different levels of leash/off-leash training and am comfortable with all. Personally, I have had many pets including dogs, cats, hamsters, fish and reptiles. I happily take time and patience to build up a bond with any animals I encounter and pride myself on a high level of professionalism within any task I take on. I would love to be considered to build a bond with your furry friend.
