About Katie

Hello! My name is Katie - I am currently based in Oxford studying primatology and zoology, and have lots of experience looking after pets! I grew up surrounded by pets since I was 3 years old (dogs, cats, guinea pigas, rabbits, fish, turtles), and absolutely love animals. I am available for home visits, house stays or providing daycare at my home during the day or overnight. As I am currently a PhD researcher, my schedule is rather flexible and self-regulated.

I have a home in Headington with a large garden, shared with fellow animal-loving PhD students. While our garden is currently occupied by pet chickens, my home is inbetween Shotover Park and Rock Edge Nature Reserve, for pets in need of some outdoor exercise. I am also available during holidays for either home stays, or to have pets stay with me at mine while you are away.

For dogs in particular, I am available to take dogs for walks or runs, provide exercise and play time. I love to take dogs on mini-excursions, and am used to 30-50 kg retrievers and newfoundlands, so am capable of handling the larger dogs on a walk/adventure, as well. I also have experience with puppies, both in training and handling the high bursts of energy! If your dog needs lots of exercise or some more outdoor time, I'd be a good match and would be more than happy to take them out for an adventure!

Katie has been a great help with my cat. My cat was happy to see us but not desperate (like it happened sometimes in the past with other pet sitters) so she has been really nice to him. She took care of the house and when I was back from holidays, I could tell she made sure the litter was really clean and everything was in order. Would definitely recommend her :)

Katie was superb, looking after cat, dogs, chickens and house whilst we were on holiday. We returned to happy animals and immaculately clean house. Thank you Katie!

I have experience watching many pets at the same time - from cats to fish to rabbits, guinea pigs and dogs, altogether.

I have experience with rescue dogs, dogs that do not get along with other dogs, large/strong dogs that pull on lead, and dogs that are not allowed off the lead.
