About Debs

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! With regards to Covid-19, I am practicing social distancing with owners and all working areas are cleaned and sanitised regularly.

We are so relieved to have found such conscientious, reliable, trustworthy and all round lovely dog sitters. Debs is great with communicating before, during and after the sit. Keeping us reassured and updated at all times. Both of our dogs were clearly relaxed, happy and very well looked after at all times and we wouldn’t hesitate to use Debs (and Tom 😊) again or recommend them to anyone in need of a dog sitter. Huge, giant thank you 🙏.

Debs looked after our two dogs Boris an Bailey in our home. We’d have no reservations about recommending her. The dogs were happy an relaxed with her. We are rebooking already and feel lucky to have found Debs! We can now go away, feeling at ease that our dogs are being well cared for.
