About Holly

I will try to keep this brief :)

My motivation to be a pet sitter is simple. I am a HUGE pet lover. I just moved to the UK and my family dog, Baby passed away a month ago. I miss having him around me but I do not want to own another pet in a new country at the moment. It would be a huge commitment. So I believe being a pet sitter is a win-win situation for me as well as for you!

I have previous experience in pet sitting. I am sensitive to their emotions and thus I consider myself a better pet sitter. A cat-owner has found me to cat sit whenever their family wants to go for a trip. I have been doing this regularly for nearly a year. They love how I kept their cat healthy and happy! (And also keeping their apartment clean and organised.) Also, as mentioned, I have a dog so I know how to take care of them too! I know from the bottom of my heart that spending time with them is as essential as feeding and cleaning their litter. I guarentee they will have enough play time with me to keep them healthy!

My experience also tells me that different families have different rules. Pet diets and habits vary too. So it would be nice if you could brief me about yours before leaving your fur baby(ies) to me. I would love to give them the best care they deserve! I can't wait to see your fur baby(ies)!!

PS. I only take vaccinated pets. Please cancel your booking 3 hours in advance at the latest. Thank you!

FAQ regarding services in my home:

  • What is specifically included in the services you offer?
    I could do trainings for puppies and simple grooming for dogs and cats. I do have experience in administering basic medication (non-injectables) to pets too but this is certainly not my strength.
  • How many dogs will you board at the same time?
    Two family units maximum each time.
  • How long are your dog walks?
    Usually an hour.
  • How many dog walks do you offer per day? How much time you can spend with pets:
    I offer twice per day. My schedule is quite flexible so please feel free to let me know your expectation.
  • How does pet care fit into your daily or weekly routine?
    I am new to this country and currently looking for job. I have an online business so I work at home pretty much most of the time.
  • What is your availability like?
    Please see my booking calendar.
  • Can you supervise guest pets 24/7?What is your home like?
    Yes but only if the dog(s) does not bark too much and only if they are small to medium size. My home is an apartment so it is not ideal for large dogs to stay too long.
  • Who else lives in your home? Any family members, roommates or pets?
    I live with my boyfriend. We do not have pets.
  • Where are the guest pets allowed to sleep?
    They are allowed to sleep anywhere they like except our bed. Please provide bedding so they could feel more comfortable at a unfamiliar environment. They are never tied up or kept in a crate.
  • Are your gates safe and secured?
    My apartment does not have a balcony and it is locked with door. There are multiple gates that make it safe and secured.
  • FAQ regarding services at your home:

    • When are you usually available?
      Anytime. Preferrably morning and afternoon.
    • What is specifically included in the services you offer?
      I could do trainings for puppies and simple grooming for dogs and cats. I do have experience in administering basic medication (non-injectables) to pets too but this is certainly not my strength.
    • How long will you stay with pets during home visits?
      Depends on how dependent the pets are. Preferrably 2 hours max for home visits.
    • Will you be able to water plants and bring in the mail? 
      Yes. Please demonstrate how much water the plants need and notice me about the mail as soon as you could.
    • How long are your dog walks? Where do you go for a dog walk?
      Dog walks are usually an hour. I personally prefer walking on concrete pavements that are close to the home area to avoid insects on their skin. But if your dog(s) love(s) walking on grass, please let me know and I will brush their hair afterwards.
    • How long can you stay in the owner's home during house sitting?
      Maximum 21 days.

      Holly (and her boyfriend) has been absolutely fantastic looking after our gorgeous Indi at short notice. Upon collection, Indi was happy and content. We would absolutely leave Indi with Holly again. She really wanted to know Indi properly and we were happy to answer any questions to help Holly do this. We received updates and photographs and we are super grateful for this too. Thank you Holly!
