About Sophie

Hello! My name is Sophie and absolutely adore animals of all shapes and sizes! I teach English as a foreign language, and I am currently living in Spain. When i am in my hometown, Cambridge (at the moment this will be over the Christmas, Easter and Summer holidays) i love spending my spare time looking after people's pets. I have had a number of animals (hamsters, rabbits, chickens, dogs, a chinchilla...) and often look after family and friend's pets while they are away. I am extremely reliable and will take care of your animal to the best of my ability. I can send regular updates and pictures of your animal while you are away to give you peace of mind while you are on holiday. In particular, I am a huge dog lover, and I love taking dogs on long walks! I have been around dogs all of my life, and I was completely besotted with my dad's Springer Spaniels, who sadly passed away last year. I have a number of regular customers already through pawshake, so please do not hesitate to give me a message!

Please do note my availability, I keep this up to date!! As i said previously, at the moment I am only available during school holidays (around Christmas, Easter and over the summer) so please do contact me if you are looking for a petsitter over these holidays!

Sophie looked after our elderly Burmese cat for nearly two weeks, visiting twice daily for feeding and changing her litter tray. We returned to a tidy house and happy, healthy cat - quite a contrast to her stay in a luxury cattery stay when she was emaciated and had a serious infection requiring immediate verterinary attention on our return! Sophie made booking, meeting up and handover an easy and enjoyable process and we are very grateful for her help - I highly recommend her as a pet sitter.

Sophie was a total hit with my dog- Stougie is usually not too fussed about women but she loved Sophie as soon as walked in! Sophie housesat and looked after Stougz for 3 days while we were abroad and i knew i did not have to worry at all. I would absolutely recommend Sophie-she is kind, caring and great with pets!
