About Elsa

Animals have been a huge part of my life for as long as I can remember ! We have always had pet dogs in the house, including several litters of labrador puppies, so I love being around dogs of all ages. Over the past ten years, I have owned and cared for dogs, cats, fish, a snake, hamsters, a tortoise and now I have two sweet baby rats ! I recently moved to London, moving away from the family home, and it has been really difficult adjusting to life without dogs. My boys are wonderful and keep me very busy (being a rat mum is serious business!!) but I am still keen to spend time with as many animals as possible as it is something that brings me alot of joy. I am a keen walker and love being outside so am excited by the prospect of dog walking. I am also confident handling nervous animals and exotic animals, confidence I have built through my experience caring for rats, other exotic animals and puppies. Finally, my mum works as a puppy trainer and I have been helping at her classes for years so alot of the teaching has rubbed off on me and I feel that I am knowledgeable in animal behaivoir, body language and training. 

At the moment, I am working part-time as a Nanny, meaning I have been fully DBS checked and am confident working in a family environment. I love my job as a Nanny but it is only 10 hours a week and now that I have finished my degree, I am looking for additional work to take up my time. 

I can provide during my visits: feeding, cleaning food/water bowls, cleaning enclosures, cleaning littler boxes, giving love and attention, walking, giving medication, play time and more.

I will also send pictures and videos of your lovely pets to you during each visit so you can see that your pet is being taken care of.

Services:

1 home visit a day: I will pop into your home once a day to feed your pet, clean out litter or enclusire, spend time with them. Visits typically last 20 minutes.

2 home visits a day: I will visit in the morning and evening for 20 minutes at a time.

Dog Walking: I will take your dog out for a 30-45 minute walk either to the nearest park or around the neighbourhood, whichever the owner prefers.

I live in Dalston so am looking to provide services around Dalston, Stoke Newington, Islington, Canonbury, Newington Green, Hackney area.

I hope to meet you and your pet soon !

Elsa :)

Specific Skills

I speak English
+10 years of experience
Familiar with dog training techniques
I have a lifetime of experience with all sorts of animals from hamsters to tortoises to dogs and cats. I currently own two pet rats which are considered an exotic animal meaning I am experienced in handling both reptiles and other exotic mammals. I have lived with multiple dogs my entire life, including rescues, and I have volunteered at puppy training classes where I picked up behavioural training knowledge and gained experience working with dogs who are more challenging. Ultimately, I feel there is no animal I wouldn't be open to working with and know that my experience in animal care and animal training makes me fit for the role of care for any animal.
