Hello, I am Jo, and I live with my partner Rob and two fish in Richmond. We are in our forties, animal lovers and very responsible. Currently, I am studying for my Nutritional Therapy degree and walking dogs, so I have a very flexible schedule and Rob works from home. We both grew up with dogs and cats and we are the number 1 choice for dog sitting for our friends and family.
We have a house in Richmond with a garden that has a secure fence. We would welcome any dog to stay in our cosy home whilst you are away in the summer months. We love walking and North Sheen recreational ground is only a 5-minute walk away, however, my favourite place to walk is in Richmond Park, which is only a 5-minute drive away.
I have been walking dogs with a reputable dog walking company for two years whilst studying, so I am confident in handling, training, and playing with dogs. I also love nothing more than a doggie cuddle on the sofa whilst watching a movie, so your doggie will feel loved. I will always keep you updated with lots of pictures of your beloved pet for peace of mind.
I can provide tailored services for your pet including dog walking, house sitting and daily visits. Additional services of doggy daycare and boarding at my house will be available after I have finished my university school year in June, so I can give your doggies my full attention but I'm happy to discuss and meet you now. I like to have a meet and greet before any booking so we can all get to know each other.
Please see the frequently asked questions and breakdown of costs below. Contact me if you have any questions at all, looking forward to meeting you and your pet.
I have a full UK driving license with no convictions, a DBS background check certificate and lots of references.

Jo was absolutely brilliant with Billy. He was very relaxed and happy with her and she made sure I had regular updates. I would 100% recommend her to anyone.
Jo was so excellent with Mabel and was very flexible with drop off / pick up timings, which is really helpful and greatly appreciated. I was sent updates throughout the day and Mabel was just having a great time on walks and playing with other dogs. I won't hesitate to use Jo again.
