First year vet student. I've been pet sitting and dog walking for over ten years. I was also a volunteer at the RSPCA Leeds & Wakefield branch for over 2 years and I absolutely adored spending time with the animals. I've also done lambing and worked on a dairy farm.
I am confident with handling most dog breeds, from great danes to chihuahuas, though I am pretty small so if your dog is particularly difficult to control then I may not be the right fit. (I have sat for german shepherds, rottweilers and such so it really is down to the dog's obedience, rather than size!)
I can look after puppies and kittens and assist in their training - I even sat a 10-week-old Akita puppy and got up at 4am every morning to take him out for a wee, so you can be sure I'm dedicated and invested in keeping their routine!
I have some experience with horses, sheep, cows, fish and birds of prey as well as extensive experience with smaller animals. I have a very calm and friendly manner around animals and seem to be particuarly gifted at befriending timid cats and rabbits. Pets I have looked after: dogs, cats, horses, rabbits, hamsters, gerbils, guinea pigs, fish, rats, tortoise. Pets I have owned: hamsters, cats, fish, mice, frogs.
This was the first time we had left our three huskies so we were quite nervous about going away for a long weekend. However after meeting Charlie we found her very professional and we felt confident leaving our babies in her capable hands. Communication was always very quick and the pups must have enjoyed her company - so much so that they weren't even bothered when we came home! Charlie was clearly very respectful of our home and sent us regular pup-dates while we were away. I can't thank her enough!
Such a nice person, and looked after my babies really well, will definetly want to book again in the future. She is someone I can trust with my animals.
