About Freya

I love animals and want to dedicate my life to working with them, and I would be happy to offer dog walking and pet care services to anyone that requires it, please feel free to contact me anytime with your request and I will get back to you ASAP! I have always been passionate about caring for animals and really miss my Labrador (who lives with my family up north!), so the chance to continue looking after dogs, cats and other pets would be such a pleasure for me, and I will always care for them as if they were my very own!

I am currently based in Lambeth (but usually spend weekends as well in North London on the High Barnet branch). I am happy to travel within reasonable distance on public transport to help anyone outside of the Lambeth area too. I'm typically free evenings after work and weekends, although this sometimes may change. Happy to try arrange visits around your schedule, so please just drop me a message to ask!

I am fortunate enough to have had years of experience with dogs, from owning my own black Labrador (who I miss terriblly!), as well as being employed for two summers at a boarding kennels, where dogs were exercised, fed, and cared for on a daily basis, and I was fortunate enough to interact with a variety of dogs of all shapes and sizes!

Additionally, I volunteered as a dog walker/sitter on a regular basis for three clients alongside my university studies, which included taking dogs for walks during the day and pet sitting overnight. When first moving to London, I was employed at Roehampton Veterinary Clinic as a Veterinary Care Assistant (VCA) which gave me valuable experience of handling and caring for both cats and dogs (including administering medications such as eye drops, oral tablets). After that, I worked as a Trainee Dog Groomer at a leading dog grooming salon. I'm currently now working in the city, but I really miss being around animals all the time!

I am able to offer dog walking and pet sitting services (cat feeds, overnight stays - please note, I am not allowed pets in my building so this service would be at your own home if required). Thank you for viewing my profile, I look forward to meeting your pet(s) and I hope to hear from you soon! :)

Freya is an excellent sitter. Our cat adored her from the start. We can’t imagine we could find a better sitter as she has a genuine love for animals. Freya is very reliable and trustworthy and she looked after our cat really well. We’ll definitely use her services in the future. Highly recommended.
