About Savia

About Me

Hello! My name is Savia, I'm a young professional living in Ealing Broadway! I am originally German, but grew up in the USA and in Prague before moving to the UK, first for university and now for work. I've been working in London for about 4 years and currently live with my boyfriend, who often helps when I look after pets.

I would describe myself as a friendly person with endless enthusiasm for animals (I adore dogs especially)! I had fish and mice as a child and later on adopted boxer dogs and a cat with my family. My boyfriend's family also has a rescue dog so I have experience with rescue pets as well.

I love caring for animals, but as a young professional in London, I don't currently have the opportunity to have a pet of my own, which is why I became a pet sitter. I've met so many great cats and dogs as part of this journey so far and I'm so grateful to the owners who have trusted me with their animal babies!

About my Pet Services

Although I love to take care of your pets, it's important to note that I do this as more of a hobby! I'm always thrilled when dates and times match up, but I do have a full-time job alongside this and need to visit the office 3x a week. I also don't have a car, which does limit my flexibility as I tend to only be able to take day-time jobs within walking distance. I do try to compromise, where possible, but cannot always guarantee this. My main wish is to be able to spend time with your pets and develop a bond with them. 

Furthermore, I've had large, athletic dogs for most of my life, so I believe I have the ability to show dominance with pets, while also ensuring they lead the active lifestyle they need and receive the love they deserve.

My small request would be that your pets have had regular checkups, are healthy and have basic training. If your pet needs to take any medication, I would like to know what kind and what he/she is taking it for.

Savia and her boyfriend were great for Dobby! We are very happy with their communication. Unfortunately due to a transport issue we arrived later than what we have told them, but they were quite understanding and helpful with this. Can’t thank you enough!
