About Katharine

Hello! I am a FT nurse. I am an ex police officer and have worked with dog handlers on many jobs. I have now done many dog/cat++ sits over the last year together with my son who is looking for cat/fish sits in Bristol from 1 October 2023.

 As a child, we had a Cairn Terrier, Rabbie, which I took to dog training classes. We also had guinea pigs and a siamese cat, Tara. I also walked my sister's various Heinz dogs (2 were rescue) when I visited her.

 I am not in a position to have my own dog at the moment, but would like to walk dogs and do dog sitting, as I am a dog and animal lover and want to keep fit. I am happy to feed dogs too if required.

I charge £12 for a 30 minute walk and £17 for an hour. £5 per half hour for another dog.

I believe dog companionship is good therapy for well being. 

I would like to do dog sitting my rate is £38 a night. I am looking forward to walking in the meadow, canal and river paths and parks with a four legged friend!

 Looking forward to hearing from you!

Katharine did a wonderful job of looking after our pets and the house. Plenty of photo updates from the numerous long dog walks. The dogs had a great time and thank you very much for taking such good care of them!.

Katherine is extremely attentive and professional. Amber is a 10 years old dog and she took care of her perfectly, asking for all special requirements and needs. Highly recommended!!!
