About Sydney

I have had a passion for animal care from a very young age and several years of experience caring for dogs, cats, horses, and other pets. I am currently living in London as a postgraduate and I would love to take up pet sitting again to help supplement my expenses while making connections and getting my fix of animal cuddles! Over the last several years, I've pet sat for over 15 families with dogs and cats of varying needs while either house-sitting or boarding their pets at my home. I am highly comfortable with pets of all shapes, sizes, and dispositions and have experience administering medication if needed. Please let me know of any special needs or requirements for your pets and I would be more than happy to accommodate. As someone who knows that pets are family, I am always very communicative and will send loads of photos and updates when caring for your pet. 

As a pet sitter, I strive to provide plenty of enrichment and love for your animal, including walks, playtime, pets, and training. I will happily maintain any established rules or routines that you have for your pets whether I am sitting at your house or mine.

If I am house sitting for you, I will be sure to take great care of both your pet and your home, taking on any cleaning or maintenance tasks you need while you're away.

If you choose to board your pet, they will be staying in my small first floor flat. I have two responsible, pet-friendly adult roommates and we have space for a pet bed, kennel and my own private room where your pet can have a private, quiet space. Your pet is welcome to share my double bed with me or sleep in a kennel, the carpet, or their own pet bed. The flat is very secure and there would be no chance of your pet escaping. We also have a small balcony to get some fresh air and several city parks nearby to go for walks.

Sydney was an excellent sitter for our rabbit. Great communication, before and during the booking and a great attitude. Her enthusiasm and care for our pet was obvious. Can't fault her.

I thoroughly recommend her.

Sydney was fantastic with our pet ferret. There were pictures / videos whilst she was dropping in and we felt very comfortable and at ease with her caring for our pet, maintaining her schedule and providing lots of play time too. Would definitely recommend
