About Lydia

My name is Lydia Dibben and I am currently studying Zoology at University of Leeds. I have always loved animals and was bought my first pets at the age of 6; a pair of beautiful fancy rats. Since then I have owned (or my family have owned) a cat, a dog, mice, goldfish, and several more rats. I also have experience outside of my own home; I worked at a boarding and rescue kennel for over 4 years. This means I have learned how to take care of hundreds of dogs each with unique personalities, including rescued dogs and those with behavioural problems. I know that walks and other care needs to be catered to the individual, and I will strive to build a caring relationship with each and every pet that I meet. I also walk friends and neighbours dogs regularly, and have cat-sat many times.

I recently started volunteering at Hydestile Resident Animals; a wildlife sanctuary in Milford. They take in many species of mammals, amphibians and birds that are sick, injured or orphaned. Alongside the rescues they have a selection of permanent residents, including; ferrets, rabbits, rats, a chinchilla, a guinea pig, a canary, a deer, pigeons and owls. This has widened my experience with animals massively, and I must be able to adapt to new challenges every day as we never know what's coming through the door next!

I understand that pets have a place in your hearts like nothing else, and their needs have to come first. I can give you peace of mind that your small animal, cat or dog are being cared for in the comfort of their own homes. I never tire of exploring woods and fields with a canine companion. I really do love spending time with any animals so you can work, travel or relax knowing that your pet(s) are being cared for by an experienced and loving individual. I hope to meet you and your pet soon!

Lydia did a wonderful job walking our excitable Vizsla puppy. She replied to all our messages extremely promptly, turned up on time, and I returned home to a tired, happy dog so couldn't have been better in any way, thank you!! :)

I was so happy with the way Lydia looked after our pets. I would be happy to have her stay again
