About Nadiya

Animals, especially dogs and cats, make me very, very happy! My day job is in the forensics world, so I am highly reliable and dedicated, and also hold high levels of security clearance.

I offer 40-60 minute walks for your dog, and 30mins-1 hr drop-in home visits for cats/dogs depending on the requirements of your pet. I am also very happy to spend extra time with your fur babies if they need it, please just ask! :) I can also water your plants and bring in your mail if required.

I have extensive experience working with animals including the following: 

  • I am a trained volunteer dog exerciser for Guide Dogs for the Blind and have worked with them since 2018.
  • Volunteered at a doggy daycare centre that used to operate in Balham, taking multiple dogs for walks at a time. 
  • Worked in an animal rescue shelter in Tanzania, Africa, working with rescued and injured stray dogs and cats. Duties included long walks, feeding, administering medication, helping with bandages, and giving lots of affection! 
  • Worked at the Blue Cross animal hospital in Victoria assisting vets with pet vaccinations. 
  • Have helped friends with cat-sitting multiple times. 
  • Worked with rescued elephants in Thailand.
  • I am currently completing a Level 3 qualification in Canine Behaviour, Care and Welfare in my spare time.

  • Your beloved pets will be in very safe, capable, and loving hands!

    My working pattern is flexible, and I work Mon-Fri with some days working from home. Please let me know your requirements and we can work things out.

    Nadiya took such amazing care of my cat and was so good at letting me know how he was doing. I will definitely be booking her for my next holiday!
