About Debs

**UPDATE - COVID-19**

I am available for walking dogs for those who may be stuck inside or ill. At this time I am happy to do this for a small donation to cover my petrol costs to get to you. Please get in touch to discuss if this is something you need. I will practice social distancing at all times, but can collect your pup and walk him or her, before returning them back to you, more tired and happy!

I am a qualified and experienced pet sitter and animal behaviourist (B.Sc) with 7 years experience working in boarding and rescue kennels with both dogs and cats, as well as previous roles as a zookeeper and carnivore keeper, working with both small and large animals. I have walked dogs and cared for pets in both my own and client's homes for a number of years and have previously had my own cats and dogs. This is the first time I have been unable to have a pet due to my current situation (too much travelling for work) and am therefore keen to make time to be around animals still, and provide a loving home for pets while their owners are away. I know how stressful it can be leaving your pets as I have had to do it myself, and I know it makes a huge difference if they can stay in their own home and if they have someone who really cares about getting to know their personality and giving them the best time. I am competent in dealing with behavioural issues and am happy to tailor my routine to their needs.

I am best equipped at the moment to sit or visit/ walk in your own home, and this would be my first preference. My home is situated far out in the countryside and so it is probably easier for me to come to you. Please note - if you live more than a reasonable distance from me I may need to add a little cost on to cover petrol costs. Alternatively, my house is on a quiet road in the countryside, and is spacious and situated on two floors, overlooking fields. I have big windows which cats have been known to enjoy sitting at in the sun, and there is plenty of space for dogs with beds and toys. Doors and windows are secure so there is no risk of escapees! Locally we have plenty of parks, walking trails and footpaths where I take dogs walking and I am happy to walk dogs on or off-lead as preferred. But get in touch and we can discuss!

I am self-employed and building my own business at present so I have plenty of time to fit in walks and games, and I am also always at home so pets will not be left alone for hours at a time. Feel free to contact me for a chat!

Debs has been brilliant, I would highly recommend her as a pet sitter. We left Henry with Debs for the week whilst we went abroad. Debs took amazing care of him that week and even took him to the coast where he enjoyed a fun filled and action packed time. She kept us updated regularly, sending pictures and updates on how he was getting on. Collecting him, Henry was happy and relaxed. Very happy pooch and happy owners. I will be asking Debs to look after him next time we go away.

Roxy has had two wonderful stays with Debs. Debs always ensures that we are kept up to date on Roxy’s day. They seem to have a wonderful time out on puppy walks together. Roxy is treated as one of Debs family when she goes to stay.
