About Caroline

Availability: most evenings after 5:15 on weekdays. I'm also free occasional weekends all day so do shoot me a message!

Hello Everyone! My names Caroline and I'm a HR Professional based in the centre of Oxford. During my studies, I pet-sat for many pets on this app and another including kittens and dogs which I absolutely loved!

In particular, I walked a small Boston Terrier 4 times a week, with regular long stays at the owners home. For friends I have house-sat for two labradors this summer for 2 weeks and the year prior, I house-sat for another Labrador for a week. This Labrador was a senior girl and I dealt with an experience of her falling sick. I learnt a lot during this care, involving communication and regular updates with the owner, an online vet consultation, an emergency vet visit in the early hours of the morning and of course lots of caring for the dog and using my judgement. The dog has recovered very well! I also volunteered at the RSPCA for many years walking and spending time with their dogs and cats both up for adoption and in boarding :))

I myself have had two cats and three rabbits - all of which have lived to very old if that says anything about my care of them haha. My 20 year old cat now has taught me to to adapt my behaviour and care of him as the years have gone on. I spend all day at a computer so I’m really trying to get out more and move environment! free Saturday/Sundays all day and weekday evenings generally free :))

Of course all pets are creatures of habit so I’ll cater to that as much as I can, making sure timings are adhered too as well as regular walking/ sleeping spots.
