About Katy

I'm an animal lover and people person. Since signing up with pawshake I have gained more experience with different breeds of dogs especially as well as Cats and other animals. I have a genuine passion for what I do and will treat your pet as if he/she were my own with cuddles, exercise, care and attention.

Please check my reviews on here for peace of mind :-)

So, a bit about me; I'm self employed, I work from home most of the time and sing for my supper occasionally! Myself and my Mother Jacqui (Who is also a member of Pawshake) used to live in the South of England and we started Pet Sitting around two years ago. We never stopped and we absolutely loved it! It was lovely to build trust and friendships with our regular clients and spend the days doing what we love. We were extremely busy and have now decided to continue to offer our services in the North of England, Kendal, where we have since re-located to.

Growing up I have always been around animals. Pets I have experience in looking after, including my own are; Dogs, Cats, Rabbits, Guinea Pigs, Hamsters, Rats, Lizards, Tropical fish......

I can also administer medications if need be. My rabbit Winston has been poorly quite a bit over the years so I have had syringe feed him every 3-4 hours day and night as well as well as give him his medication. Our Cat Thomas, who is no longer with us, was diabetic and we would have to give him injections twice a day. So I feel quite confident with that. Jacqui and I have also looked after rescue Dogs who haven't had the best start.

Services I offer;

House sitting in your home

Dog walking

Daily visits for your Cat, Dog or any other animal....

Currently, until I settle properly into my new home in Kendal and get my home boarding licence from the local council I cannot offer pet boarding in my own home but I can come to yours! I estimate that in the next couple of months this service will be available.

We have experience looking after puppies from as young as 10 weeks old to more elderly Dogs. We have looked after breeds such as; Springer Spaniels, Cocker Spaniels, Labradors, Retrievers, Chihuahuas, Great Danes, Bull Mastiff, Bull Dogs, Bernese, Jack Russells, Collies, French Bull Dogs, Terriers, Shitzhus, Staffys, Irish Setters and plenty more!

Please note that my Mother Jacqui helps out with some of my Pet boarding occasionally. So, on your meet and greet with me you will also get to meet Jacqui too! This is just in case you would like to book me for 1 or two weeks when you go on holiday but perhaps I have a gig or two over that time, Jacqui can come and cover the day or two when I cannot be there. We have always worked together to make things possible for our regular clients who have relied on us in the past. Some are a little nervous and some are full of energy! But we love them all!

Please don't hesitate to ask me any further questions :-)

Daisy had an absolutely great time with Katy. The photos were a great reassurance for us that Daisy was being well looked after. Definitely recommend Katy and her mum Jacqui who is also om Pawshake.

We were very happy with the way Katy looked after our boy. She is a very friendly and conscientious sitter and we would thoroughly recommend her.
