My name is Katie and I can not hide that my life passion is animals! I will treat all pets as my own and will give the best treatment possible. I understand that leaving pets behind during the day for work or whilst away on holiday can be a cause for worry, but I will do everything I can to reassure you and keep you up to date via Pawshake, text or whatsapp. Outside of working hours, I spend my time volunteering at a dog trainning club to help owners understand and improve the relationship with their pets and learn as much as possible. It is my aspiration to dovelop my skills in animal behaviour and every dog walk, house sit or visit teaches me something new about the stages of pet dovelopment, differences between breeds and personallities and most of all, the outstanding amout of love they give and deserve in return.
I have volunteered with various local rescue centres to help animals in need, zoological colections to help with endangered species and finaly become a pet sitter/ walker to care for pets when owners are unable to themselves.
Home visits for cats and other pets can be carried out either once or twice a day in the morning (between 6-9am) or evening (between 3-7pm) including over christmas and bank holidays. Clean water, food, Litter tray cleanning, toilet breaks for dogs, play, brushing/grooming as well as company can be provided for these visits. I Understand that some pets are shy and will be cautious with new people, I will be calm and quiet and let them aproach when they are ready.
On dog walks, there are no more than three dogs together but this is only with consent from all oners owners and if this arangment will be benefit all dogs involved. My aim is to enrich your dogs walks by offering to have 'Sniffer Walks', 'Exercise Walks' (for those needing help to lose weight) and 'Desensitisation Walks' for those that are more nervous. Walks are taylored to meet your dogs needs and I remain vigilant on walks to make sure all dogs that I am responcible for remain safe and comfortable. If you are intrested or have any questions about dog walking, please ask.
Pet/house sitting can be provided on evenings or overnight stays whilst on holiday, where I will live in and take care of your house as well as your pets. I try my best to keep your dogs rutine as normal as possible where I can, however due to dog walking comitments, this may not always be possible. The maximum amount of time that I will leave your pets will be 4 hours at once, including any travel time. I chose to dog sit in the clients home because it is the enviroment that pets know best and are most comfotable with, reducing stress.
Each of these services may require me to enter your home with a key that I have been provided with during the free meet and greet session. I will treat your home with as much respect as I will care for your pets.
If you have any questions, I will happily answer them.
Katie did a wonderful job of caring for our 3 dogs and 1 cat! I felt fully comfortable while we were away because Katie kept us updated with messages and pictures. I would highly recommend her as a house sitter, we will be asking her to sit for us again!
This was our second time of hiring Katie to house sit and look after our 4 small dogs for a week...again we can’t thank her enough for making us feel at ease whilst away knowing that our girls are in safe hands. We are very pleased to have found Katie and cannot recommend her services enough. Thank you so much Katie!
