About James

Hello; my name is James I am a pet lover and owner. I currently have two dogs; Denzil an English bulldog and Tia a Staffy. I also own two snakes an amel corn snake and a dwarf vera Cruz boa constrictor. Denzil is a big gooey lump who is very bonnie and very lazy, Tia is a tremendously affectionate and an extremely intelligent dog. They are both rescue dogs which my family adopted, we absolutely adore them both and cannot imagine our lives without them. I grew up with dogs and have had experience with caring for a multitude of breeds including dobermans, labradors, cocker spaniels, boxers, rottweilers and Staffordshire bull terriers. When walking client dogs I leave my own dogs at home. This is so I can give my full attention to your pet :) I can arrange to take one of my pets with me if your dog requires socialisation.

I have experience of caring for various small furry critters such as hamsters and gerbils, previously have owned cats and have around 7 years experience with caring for and rescuing exotics.

My passion for animals is my motivation to establish myself as a local pet sitter/carer. I am offering various pet services including day and overnight stays/dog walking/visits for feeding, company, bathing, medication, some grooming and any other needs your pets may have :)

I stay in Perth city centre and am offering my services within the city and surrounding areas. Dog walking is charged at £8 per hour with an extra fee of £4 an hour per additional dog. Paw shake lists walk as only 30 minutes but I charge £8 an hour not £8 for a 30 minute walk as I do not see a 30 minute walk for £8 being good value for money.

Home visits are charged at a set rate of £8, services include playing with your pet, feeding, medication and basic grooming and can last for up to an hour. I can also combine walks and visits. For example I can walk your pet for 30 minutes and then spend 30 minutes feeding, grooming, playing or anything else your pet needs. I can also do overnight and day stays at a rate of £30 a day or half days and nights at a rate of £25. I can do various different hours to suit your pets needs so if what you want isn't listed here please get in touch and we can come to a suitable arrangement.

My availability varies if you are interested in my services please get in touch direct and we can discuss days and times that are suitable. Even though my calendar may state that I am not available please still get in touch as I can still offer evening visits or early morning visits and my availability can change quite often.

Highly recommend for cat sitting. James took great care of our cat Cleo while we were away for the weekend. Cleo is an older cat, she hates being out of her routine and gets too stressed at the cattery so cat sitting is perfect for her. James visited twice a day to feed her but more importantly keep her company. He shared photos and updates which was a huge peace of mind. He's easy to chat to and a nice guy who's clearly a fellow animal lover. Very reasonably priced too for the quality of service. Thanks James, much appreciated!!!
