About Illyssa

I’ve had German Shepards and Belgium Shepards since I was 12 and have been training and taking care of them since - bathing, feeding, walking, running and playing with them. I enjoy caring for all dogs but also know how to handle very high energy and active dogs.

As my dogs are back in my home country, I am missing the company of a fur baby so would love to take care of your pet if you need a hand. Having trained my 5 German Shepards in the past, I am able to give your dog basic obedience training during their time with me - sit, stay, down, pulling on the leash and recall during their stay with me.

I have experience taking care of dogs with early/late stage kidney failure, which includes giving dialysis, administering multiple oral medication at once, hand feeding and extra attentive care to monitor their condition daily. As well as senior dogs with hips/arthritis problems and puppies aged 1-2 years needing a lot of attention and care.

I have a flexible schedule working as I work remotely so will have ample time to take care of your fur baby! I live just 5 mins away by from a big park so can bring you pet on frequent/long walks as well as fetch during their stay depending on what they are used to.

Please contact me for any queries I will be happy to assist!

Illyssa was wonderful with Teddy. She sent loads of photos and asked plenty of questions! Will definately be an Illyssa devotee for all future bookings.
