I come from a family of animal lovers which is where my love of animals began, I grew up with cats, dogs hamsters, snakes horses, and lizards - though not all at be same time! There's no creature I don't enjoy caring for. I love the company of animals and care for them like my own when they're in my care.
I have been sitting for a few years now and have several returning customers and all five-star reviews.
I offer home visits
primarily to feed your pet/s, either once or twice per day. Some require the litter cleaning each visit too, and I am always wanting a stroke with the animals when I visit if I can! I've found some cats will sit on my lap for a while purring away and some dogs will roll on their back for a belly rub, however some animals I have sat have been more nervous of strangers and prefer to hide during my visits, which is fine, I have hunted for them (with permission) so I can keep the pet owners mind at rest they are in the property! At the end of each booking, I always make sure that all bowls and mats are washed up, trays are emptied, cleaned and filled with fresh litter, floors are vacuumed of any stray litter, etc. and countertops are disinfected.
In summary, home visits are tailored to what is best for you and your pet.
I offer Dog Walking
I am able to collect and return dogs for their walks, walk length depends on the dog but will generally be 30-40 minutes unless we discuss otherwise.
I offer Animal boarding/daycare
we have a lovely five-bedroom property with a medium-sized, fully enclosed garden. we are walking distance to the beach and park for walks. We love our guests to be happy and relaxed, so special beds, toys, treats or techniques are more than welcome here with your pet.
I do have two small children, so any pet coming would need to be child-friendly.
My daughter is 3.5 years and excellent with animals. She knows to be respectful and how to approach. My son is under one so I would not have any contact with any animals. At no point would either child be left alone with any guest pets, or be responsible for them on walks.
I always prefer a meet here before any dog boarding if possible, to check the dog is happy in this environment and so the owner can see where they will be staying. Happy dog = happy owner & happy sitter!
I have a business from home, so I am able to be with any pets I sit for most of the day, though I am currently on maternity leave with my second child, making me even more available than usual!
We do not currently have any resident pets since losing our 2 girls a few years back, so, for now, we can take animals that prefer to be the only pets in the house.
Charli had a very difficult job with two very unsociable cats! However she kept me updated throughout my holiday and sent me what photos she could. I could relax as I knew she was taking the best possible care of them. Charli is easy going, very likeable and a good communicator. I will be using her again.
Charli looked after our two cats for two weeks recently. They usually go to the cattery and although they tolerate this, we felt they might be happier to stay in their own home. There were a few teething problems as the cats were totally confused by someone else coming in to feed them (they were a bit spooked as they aren't used to different people coming and going a lot) but Charli took good care of them and the house while we were away and within a few minutes of us being home normal service was resumed! We will book Charli again as we think once the cats get used to the arrangement they will settle more with the routine. We all agreed that next time we should have Charli over shortly before the sitting starts to signal to the cats that she will soon be coming to look after them and help them get used to it more.
No qualifactions, just experience and a genuine caring demeanor. I am a sporty person so enjoy dog walking/running, and have the beach very near perfect for it.
